- BOTTOM LINE
Simple, comfortable, and practical, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is ideal for the professional gamer and anyone who wants to be one someday.
The Logitch G Pro Gaming Mouse is simple, responsive, and quite deadly (for your opponents). It has one of the widest and fastest response rates of any gaming mouse, running from 200 to 12,000dpi, and that sensitivity is adjustable on the fly so you’re always in control of your on-screen movements. It works for righties and lefties almost equally well, and it has the traditional mouse shape that many users love. It’s also full of features that are actually useful, like the ability to save your mouse preferences to the mouse itself, so you won’t have to download and install a driver to every computer you plug in to.

With a lithe, low body and a slim, lightweight profile, the Logitch G Pro Gaming Mouse is extremely reminiscent of the beloved Logitech G100s gaming mouse. At 4.6 x 2.4 x 1.5 inches and 2.9 ounces, the G Pro is one of the lightest and smallest gaming mice currently on the market. Not only is this good news for people with small hands, but those who prefer a speedy, potentially lower-DPI (dots per inch sensitivity) mouse to a heftier one that gives more control.
The G Pro keeps things relatively simple with only six buttons: a left button, a right button, a clickable scroll wheel, a DPI selector directly beneath that wheel and two thumb buttons on the left side. Until you actually click the thumb buttons, it’s hard to describe just how responsive they are. They feel resistant and precise, and are a pleasure to click again and again.
My only real criticism here is that despite the G Pro’s almost completely ambidextrous design, there’s no option for left-handed players. I understand that this isn’t an option on ergonomic mice, but the G Pro is almost entirely symmetrical. Another set of buttons or a left-handed configuration could have really helped a demographic that traditionally hasn’t been able to make the most of Logitech mice, and the Logitch G Pro Gaming Mouse would have been a great place to start.
The G Pro runs on Logitech Gaming Software, as do all other modern Logitech gaming peripherals, and it’s still one of the best programs on the market. With the program, you can assign commands to buttons, alter DPI, tune your mouse to the surface it’s on, set up different profiles for different games and even change the G Pro’s color scheme. The mouse possesses full RGB capabilities, and while there’s only one lighting zone, it’s still a nice touch to be able to pick whatever color you like for it.
Beyond that, you can select between profiles stored on your PC and a single profile stored within the mouse itself. This can be incredibly useful if you want to pursue the tournament scene, but don’t want to drag your PC with you everywhere you go.
By setting up an on-board profile, you can customize DPI levels, button commands and color scheme, and have the gaming mouse “remember” it, even if you plug it into a PC without the Logitech software. The G Pro is hardly the only mouse to offer this functionality, but it’s a useful one, given the target audience.
Logitech informed me that while the Logitch G Pro Gaming Mouse has an eSports audience in mind.The mouse should also be accessible to more casual players. With that in mind, I ran it through both competitive multiplayer games and everyday adventure titles to see how it held up. The results were good on both fronts.
The mouse was quick to respond during gaming sessions of Grand Theft Auto, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and even classics like Counter-Strike. I varied mousing surfaces from our bare lab benches to cloth and plastic mouse pads to a pad of paper.The G Pro worked smoothly across the lot. Switching between the four default dpi settings, I could instantly gauge that they were designed for twitchy action games, navigating first- and third-person shooters, fine motor control, and sniper scope viewing (where the cursor hardly moves at all).
The sensor in the mouse allows a wide range, from 200 to 12,000dpi. That matches what you’ll find on the Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex, and is much wider and more sensitive than on competitors like the Roccat Kova (7,000dpi) and Razer DeathAdder Chroma (10,000dpi). The difference between 12,000 and 10,000dpi is unlikely to be perceived by mere mortals, but it is a bragging point nonetheless.
Free of unnecessary accoutrements like stepped mouse buttons or asymmetrical wiring points, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is simply a responsive and (mostly) ambidextrous input device that solves the problems of traveling gamers. It’s attractive, comfortable, customizable, light, and reasonably priced for what you get. This makes it worthy to replace the Razer DeathAdder Chroma as our top pick for gaming mice.
The G Pro is a high-quality mouse with an intelligent design and robust software. Logitech’s goal was to make a mouse to suit both tournament players and single-player aficionados, and in this, I think it has succeeded. The question is, does it succeed more than other Logitech gaming mice?

The Daedalus Apex is not as comfortable, but is nearly the same thing under the hood. The Proteus Spectrum is more versatile and only a little more expensive. The G402 Hyperion Fury has a more unusual design, but offers similar benefits for FPS players.
Due to its small size, light weight and responsive buttons, the G Pro manages to carve out its own niche in the crowded world of gaming mice. It may not be the final word on competitive peripherals, but it’s a strong contender.
