Our Verdict

If you seek a top performing wireless mouse, this is a great option. The unit has all the functionality one could ask for including a flawless optical sensor, 7 programmable buttons, and mechanical switches. However, the advantages that this mouse affords don't come cheap.

Our Analysis and Test Results

Logitech G Pro gaming mouse

Likes


The Logitech G Pro is a feature-packed wireless mouse. The unassuming design of this symmetrical unit has 8 programmable buttons, onboard dongle storage (for those of you who want a travel mouse), as well as adjustable polling rate and DPI/CPI. The unit also has optional software that will help dial in the keys, light, et cetera. To make the G Pro a do-it-all mouse, the design incorporates a G-shift function. This function is the mouse equivalent of a mullet: business functionality on the front-end and, with the press of a button, a seamless transition to a user-defined gaming setting on the back-end.

Dislikes


Common complaints about this mouse are preferential in nature. For one, the mouse is considered lightweight at 80 grams. While this is good for FPS activities, it's not the best for MMOs and the like. Also, some might not like the symmetry of the shell and the modular side buttons. As far a flare is concerned, the mouse has only one light — a backlit logo on the shell. Personal preferences aside, the G Pro is one of the few mice that we have tested that performs at a high level as both a gaming and productivity mouse, incorporating smooth scroll and click action as well as forward and back browsing buttons, to name some of the non-gaming-specific features.
