Hey, please don’t run away. I know where you are coming from as in recent years Logitech’s mice are not functioning well. They either lose their luster or start double-clicking. The same happened to me when I bought the G502. I had to replace it with Redragon. However, Logitech G Pro X wireless mouse is a different entry and has been doing wonders since its first launch.
I’ll be honest here. The internal components, and the way it is designed, are just perfectly splendid. Although there are a few issues regarding its scroll wheel but that can be fixed.
In short, if you are looking for something in the budget, and also want exceptionality and all the top-tier functionality then the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse should be your first choice. Well, without any further ado, let’s begin the Logitech G Pro X superlight review.
Initial thoughts and G Pro wireless mouse’s wide usage
If you are into esports, and a fanatic of FPS games, then there’s no better mouse than Logitech G Pro X superlight. Why? When you play games like FIFA, or Call of duty, you need withstanding aims: for kicking the ball, and for shooting the targets. Imagine if you have a rotten mouse of ancient times that has a tarnished DPI and polling rate. You won’t be able to kill a single enemy—no wonder, why people are looking for a mouse that has increased DPI and polling rate.
In 2018, the mouse has made a quite considerable number of reviews on its first launch, and the majority of them are positive. The foremost reason is its lightweight.
Basically, the G Pro wireless mouse is technically a portable mouse that you can take anywhere without any carrying issues. There are no wires that can get entangled, and no loose ends. Everything is as perfect as it should be.
The Grip of Logitech G Pro X
When it comes to claw-grip, then there’s no better mouse than Logitech G pro X superlight because the shape is skillfully carved to give you some comfy and decent holding. For what it’s worth, the mouse has its name for working on all types of hands. It doesn’t matter what sort of grip fixes on your hand; the mouse will nonetheless work like a charm.
Not to forget, if you are into pure fingertip grippers, then this mouse might not be for you. So, I would suggest you look into other options that might befit your taste.
Logitech G Pro X Superlight Design
Since it’s a wireless mouse, you don’t really have to fish for dedicated cables or wires. The only thing that should be of concern is its battery percentage and batteries. Yes, you would be required to charge your mouse because, without it, the mouse will die.
For what its price, even with slotted batteries, the G Pro X superlight doesn’t even weigh more than 63 grams. I know it’s surprising.
The manufacturers put their heart into this mouse with whatever they had, especially, the new technology which made the manufacturing process a success in its own way. Apart from this, since the superlight version precedes the original Logitech G Pro X, you get to hold the same outlook and color, which means it’s mesmerizing as the original mouse.
Although, you might not be seeing any customizable buttons on the mouse because anything weighing hardly 60 grams wouldn’t have more than two buttons on it. To be honest, so don’t really anxious about losing extra buttons because they are useless in the first place, unless you are into mouse coding.
Not to mention, you also lose the ability to turn on RGB. It doesn’t exist in the first place. In short, there are tradeoffs. If you want looks, value-added buttons, then maybe scale whether the weight reduction is worth it. At times, people value the outlook of hardware rather than its weight. So, in which spectrum do you lie?
Like any other brand, Logitech ensures that its packaging remains one of the finest to date, and it is. The superlight version comes in the same packaging as its successor, but the only difference is that the packaging doesn’t feel heavy anymore.
You also get hold of documentation which is a must if you are a newbie when wireless mice are concerned. Do go through the documentation to know how to dismantle and reassemble the mouse in case if you are looking forward to making some internal tweaks (Wouldn’t suggest so).
Also, the packaging comes with a dedicated USB receiver and a charging cable. Obviously, the mouse wouldn’t even work without a charger. In short, you get hold of all the necessary equipment to get you started with the G Pro X superlight.
On a side note, if you are just looking forward to office work, then G Pro wireless is not for you. The mouse, in the first place, is designed for competitive gamers. Get yourself some low-end mouse if office work is what your concern is.
It was right away clear that the mouse is for gamers, and not for people who are looking forward to some cute little office work. For what it’s worth, G Pro X superlight redefines the world of gaming in its own way.
First of all, the G Pro X is equipped with Logitech’s latest sensor technology HERO (High-Efficiency Rated Optical). It will be shocking because this particular entry has a sensor that can top up to 25600 CPI.
If you are new to these terms, the CPI is nothing but how your mouse is rendered on the screen. You can trigger up and down these CPI values to cater to your desires.
On top of that, the mouse also pitches in 40 IPS figures, coupled with up to 40g of acceleration. Not to mention, you also get hold of 2.4 GHz wireless dongle technology that accelerates the overall connectivity of the mouse.
If it’s too complicated then, in short, it only means that this mouse is incredible. It’s faster, light-weighted, efficient, and customizable in every aspect (Sorry, RGB. Not you, this time).
But the real question arises, are wireless mice worth it? Are they worth spending on as far as gaming is concerned? To save your time, yes, these wireless mice are a better option compared to wired mice that can entangle you and then, leading to horrendous accidents.
I remember, toppling off my mouse, just because it had a long wire snaking out of the table. Too messy, I say.
However, with these wireless mice, there’s no issue with wiring or anything that can hamper your setup’s charming abilities.
Last but not the least, Logitech G Pro X also changed the mouse’s PTFE feet for more coverage. Now the mesh is as huge as possible for letting your mouse breathe, and sustain through dangerous ambient temperatures.
After going through all these gaming-related features, it can be said that the G Pro X will not only skyrocket the overall gaming performance but also will ensure that you get the best out of its existence.
Software tweaking for Logitech G Pro X superlight
Like any other Logitech mouse, the G Pro X relies on Logitech’s G Hub software for any external tweaking. Definitely, you would be required to set up dedicated CPI levels for your mouse. It’s obvious that the default settings might not befit your taste; for instance, the 400 CPI level is nothing but a snail moving on your screen.
Not to mention, you can increment these CPI levels with the software with every double incrementing power. For example, the 400 CPI can be toggled up to 800, and then 1600, then 3200, and so on.
Apart from this, the G Hub software also offers you to set up five discrete profiles with embedded recording Macros-programmable keys. Whenever you want to change a profile, simply click on it, and bingo, it’s done. The new settings will be automatically applied to your mouse.
Some value-added features of Logitech G Pro X
With Logitech G Pro X, you also get hold of the range extender, grip tape, lightspeed receiver and etc. These value-added features are just there to aid you in the building process. Not to mention, you also get hold of a charging cable which is decent enough to survive for a couple of years.
On a side note, for the battery life, it’s around 72 hours. To be honest, it’s more than enough; enough to last for three straight days (more than that, if you are not using it 24/7).

All in all, Logitech G Pro X superlight is a mesmerizing entry as far as gaming is concerned. You wouldn’t be falling behind in any competitive gaming. Well, there could be an issue of the double-clicking or weirded-out scroll wheel, but that can be fixed by watching guides and videos.
But again, the chances are almost non-existent. I hope you loved our detailed review.
