Logitech’s G Pro X Superlight and its lightweight wireless gaming mouse

Logitech's G Pro X Superlight and its lightweight wireless gaming mouse

Manufacturers should not be overwhelmed by gunning to make a lightweight gaming mouse (as recently as 66-gram Steel Series Aerox 3 Wireless), Logitech’s new G Pro X weighs less than 63 grams without the need for superlight holes. While many other manufacturers are punching honeycomb-shaped hole designs from their rats to achieve light weights, Logitech’s latest is simpler and smoother. Of course, it weighs about 63 grams, but if you remove the magnetic plate on the bottom that covers the USB wireless receiver, the weight is reduced to 60 grams. The G Pro X Superlight goes on sale on December 3rd.

Lightweight version of Superlight Logitech’s famous $ 130 G Pro Wireless, Whose weight is 80 grams – and if you have not experienced a gaming mouse It’s Light, it looks like a hollow prototype. Despite some weight loss (along with some features), the Superlight Lite 20 was added to the price tag at $ 150.

If you remove the bottom cover the superlight will reach a weight of 60 grams. Otherwise, it weighs 63 grams.

Weight differences aside, there are many other tweaks to be aware of. The Super Pro G Pro comes in a matte-textured off-white finish with an all-black finish similar to wireless. It looks awesome. The new mouse has a lot less LEDs, which will help reduce weight and increase battery life, Logitech said. The glowing “G” logo on the palm is gone, and there are LEDs near the scroll wheel to indicate DPI sensitivity. Now there is only a small LED and it only tells you the battery status.

It should come as no surprise that having lower LEDs gives better battery life, but La Protec claims that this model can reach up to 70 hours on a charge compared to 48 hours with the G Pro wireless.

The same hero as the Superlight G Pro wireless has a 25,600 DPI sensor, so you can expect the same great performance here, but you can not easily change the sensitivity on this mouse, because the Logitech DPI switching button has been tapped on the bottom of the G Pro wireless. You will need to manually change it along with the profiles stored on the mouse using the GHub software.

Logitech also removed the modular, removable buttons from the G Pro wireless, which helped achieve a truly ambiguous design. Instead of supporting left and right hand gamers, the Superlight is just for the right hand, with the thumb buttons on the left edge of the mouse.

At the bottom of the superlight, the PTFE feet are much larger than the G Pro wireless. Logitech used a “zero-additive” material that could lead to smooth glides across surfaces. The circular, magnetic plate that covers the compartment where you can store the USB wireless receiver is usually hard plastic, but all the PTFE plate included in the box can be swapped in its place. Logitech also offers some grip tape that can be hooked up on the mouse if you want a different design. I really like these changes.

For many, the Steel Series Aerox 3 wireless mentioned above might be a good mouse to try. It’s not perfect, but it has $ 100 and USB-C charging (as opposed to Superlight’s micro USB charging) with optional LEDs, dual Bluetooth and 2.4GHz connectivity. And to top it off, it has IP54 water resistance. Which gamer actually needs water resistance? Not much, I think. However, when it comes to value it is very difficult to argue for a price superiority, unless you are leaning on its minimal design above all else.
