Quick take

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight and Logitech G Pro Wireless are similar gaming mice, though the G Pro X Superlight is better overall and is more expensive as a result. The G Pro X Superlight is lighter and it has a longer advertised battery life. Both use the same safe shape that fits most hand sizes and grip styles, though the G Pro Wireless has buttons on both sides, making it suitable for left or right-handed use and giving you more programmable inputs when using G-Shift functionality. The G Pro Wireless also has RGB.

Before diving into gaming performance some context is important. Both the Logitech G Pro X Superlight and the Logitech G Pro Wireless are fantastic gaming mice. They are fast gaming mice with low latency and good build quality. They also share Logitech’s leading Hero 25k DPI sensor, which is well-known for its accuracy and tracks at 400 inches per second, more than enough for the quickest mouse flicks.

The two main performance-related differentiators between the two Logitech gaming mice are the weight and switch durability. The G Pro X Superlight’s lower weight is noticeable when first opening the box and after when gaming. The lighter weight glides more effortlessly on a mousepad and there’s little resistance with stop and start motions.

However, the G Pro Wireless has more durable L/R switches. Both mice switches feel the same and register tactile clicks, but the G Pro Wireless’s switches are rated for 50 million clicks, compared to just 20 million for the G Pro X Superlight.

We noted in our full review that the G Pro X Superlight’s switch durability is a head-scratcher for a flagship gaming mouse, especially since Logitech’s older models – like the G Pro Wireless – and cheaper gaming mice from other brands have far superior switch durability.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight has a slightly better advertised battery life of 70 hours compared to 60 hours for the Logitech G Pro Wireless.

Otherwise, these two gaming mice are the same regarding connectivity. Both use Logitech’s Lightspeed 2.4 Ghz technology to transmit wirelessly via a USB receiver, there’s no Bluetooth, and both have onboard USB storage.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight and Logitech G Pro Wireless use the same exact design language. They are the same dimensions and shape.

But the Logitech G Pro Wireless adds two buttons on the right side and one underneath, bringing its total to eight buttons.

Using the G-Shift functionality in Logitech-G-Hub software you can program up to 15 actions with the G Pro Wireless. The additional buttons are valuable if you need more programmable inputs and if you like to remap a DPI or profile cycling command to the underside button.

The G Pro X Superlight’s five buttons unlock nine potential programmable inputs.

The Logitech G Pro Wireless has one RGB zone on the logo on the backside. To cut weight, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight doesn’t include this feature.

Nicely, both models come with several different customization options in the box. The G Pro X Superlight comes with grip tape and an extra PTFE foot that replaces the standard puck-like bottom cover.

The G Pro Wireless doesn’t come with grip tape or a PTFE foot, but it does come with four replacement side buttons that easily pop off to configure the buttons.

As for the software experience, Logitech’s G-Hub is one of the few software programs that is fully compatible with macOS.

G-Hub is robust and has the most common features most gamers need, including the ability to remap your button commands, adjust DPI and polling rates, and customize the RGB effects (Logitech G Pro Wireless) only.

G-Hub also has an auto-profile switching feature that automatically changes your saved profile based on the current windowed program. This feature is convenient if you want to customize profiles for specific games and programs.
