Editorial rating: 4.00 / 5 ⭐️’s
The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a good wireless gaming mouse for the price, and it performs well in fast-paced games. It will not be the leader in any category, but that’s to be expected since it’s not a flagship gaming mouse. Overall, you’ll get snappy performance and a highly accurate sensor in an enduringly popular shape. You can also use it right or left-handed. The main downsides may not be make or break for you, but newer, more expensive models can beat the battery life, weight, and switches.

If you like the shape but want a better gaming mouse: The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is the G Pro Wireless’s successor, and it improves upon several shortcomings, all while using the same design language. It is much lighter and has a longer advertised battery life, but you won’t get RGB, and it doesn’t have buttons on both sides.
If you prefer an ergonomic gaming mouse: The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro is fast and light and has an ergonomic shape that slants downward on top from left to right. The advertised battery life is also far higher. But the Deathadder V3 Pro is considerably more expensive.
If you want better switches and a different shape: The Razer Viper V2 Pro’s switches are much better feeling and more durable. The scroll wheel is also better.
If you want to save some money: You can go wired or wireless and buy the Glorious Model D. The wired and wireless versions are cheaper, and you still get snappy performance with these lighter mice and their low latency.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless weighs 80 grams. This weight is higher than the lightest gaming mice but is still very light compared to other gaming and productivity mice. Anything below 70 grams is super light, whereas moving below 50 grams puts you into the ultralight territory that is pretty much exclusive to FPS gaming.
A lighter gaming mouse could help reduce fatigue over longer gaming sessions and potentially be faster to move, but it all depends on how low you want to go weight-wise. Ultralight gaming mice aren’t great for much other than fast-paced gaming since their feature sets are so limited and the build quality can be questionable.
Most of the best Logitech gaming mice, including the Logitech G Pro Wireless, use Logitech’s Hero 25k sensor, which has a DPI range of 100 to 25,600. This highly accurate optical sensor is critical for FPS titles where aiming and movement mechanics must be precise and fast.
There are few gaming mice with higher DPIs. The Razer Viper V2 Pro and the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro include Razer’s Focus 30k sensor, which maxes out at 30,000 DPI. That said, there isn’t much practical value to extremely high DPIs, with the exception of providing future proofing against increasing monitor resolutions.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless has a max polling rate of 1000 Hz. 1000 Hz is a common and high polling rate among the best FPS gaming mice, so the Logitech G Pro Wireless is comparably fast.
There are some gaming mice with higher polling rates, such as the Razer Viper 8K Hz, but most casual gamers aren’t going to notice the latency difference between 1000 and 8000 Hz.
While you can adjust the polling rate to 125, 250, and 500 Hz presets, we don’t see a need to do this. Using the highest polling rate possible improves latency since your mouse will report actions back to your computer at up to 1,000 times per second.
Button performance and sound
The Omron D2FC-F-K switches in the Logitech G Pro Wireless’s L/R buttons aren’t great or bad. They sound solid enough and feel alright, but the switches could register a more tactile clicking feel when actuated.
The switches also require little downforce to actuate so you can inadvertently click the buttons. If you like the shape of this gaming mouse, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight has the same shape and better-feeling switches that are crisp and tactile.
We’re also a bit let down by the scroll wheel click, but admit that this is mostly personal preference. Other scroll wheels have a louder click with more tactile feedback. However, the scroll wheel steps feel great and have a crisp sound.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless has a good gliding experience for a mouse of its weight. You will notice the smooth gliding difference if you’re upgrading from a heavier mouse or one not built for gaming. In total, there are five PTFE feet, three on the back, one up front, and a small foot surrounding the sensor.
But the gliding experience isn’t going to be as sensitive as an ultralight gaming mouse that requires the lightest touch to put it in motion and slow it down.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless could potentially glide on par with the best gaming mice with more coverage area for its feet, but we’ll never know since the foot design isn’t changing.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless transmits via a standard 2.4 GHz connection that Logitech has branded as Lightspeed technology. There is no Bluetooth connectivity, which is commonly the case with competing gaming mice. Bluetooth is a slower transmission standard and including it would add unnecessary weight.
Nicely, you’ll get a USB extender in the box. This way, you can move the USB receiver closer to your Logitech G Pro Wireless to improve latency performance.
Lastly, you can use the Logitech G Pro Wireless while charging, which is a nice convenience feature when the battery runs out mid-game and you want to keep grinding.
60 hours of battery life is good enough but can be beaten. Several Razer gaming mice are now getting upwards of 90 hours of advertised battery life over a 2.4 GHz connection.
Gaming mice with Bluetooth will also tend to get a longer battery life with the more power-efficient transmission standard, though many of these models also use AA batteries, which adds weight compared to rechargeable batteries.
Logitech does need to play catch up regarding the quality of its charging cable. The Logitech G Pro Wireless includes a micro-USB rubber cable that is somewhat stiff and feels bulky overall. Many competing gaming mice, including cheaper ones, have flexible braided cables and/or updated USB-C connections. These cables feel more premium overall.
There are a total of eight buttons on the Logitech G Pro Wireless, the standard L/R click buttons and a scroll wheel on top, two buttons on both sides, and a button on the underside. There is also an on/off power switch on the bottom.
The Logitech G Pro Wireless has some unique features regarding its side buttons. Not only can the mouse be configured to be used right or left-handed but you can also enable or disable the side buttons in G-Hub, giving you up to four total side buttons to use.
Admittedly, it is awkward trying to click the right side buttons when using the mouse right-handed, and vice versa. But they’re there to use if you’d like and can be disabled. There are four side replacement side buttons in the box as well.
A rubberized material with ridges surrounds the Logitech G Pro Wireless scroll wheel. This results in a grippy, precise scrolling experience, all made better by the feel of scrolling the wheel through each of its steps.
But the scroll wheel click isn’t perfect. We couldn’t put our finger on the exact reasons why. It is some combination of little travel, the sound, and not enough of a tactile click that explains why we weren’t confident when clicking the scroll wheel.
As is to be expected in this category, there is no L/R tilt or free-scrolling functionality.
Many reviewers say that Logitech has played it safe with the G Pro Wireless’s shape. We’d agree, and it appears that this design call makes sense. You can’t argue with Logitech selling these models like hotcakes for the past few years.
The symmetrical egg shape is extremely versatile for many hand sizes and grip styles. The hump on top is evenly balanced throughout the length of the mouse, perhaps slightly biased back of center.
There is no downward slant on the top like an ergonomic gaming mouse, and there are no deeply accentuated curves on the sides or sharp angles elsewhere.
Hand size and grip style
Since the Logitech G Pro Wireless has such a versatile design, it’s no surprise that it suits most hand sizes and grip styles.
As for grip styles, the Logitech G Pro wireless fits best with palm grips and works well with claw and fingertip grips. The height profile curves nicely to your palm for added support without being too high to obstruct your palm when using other grips.
That said, claw and fingertip grips don’t have much gripping power. The sides are somewhat slippery, and there aren’t deeply-accentuated curves to grip onto. Adding grip tape to the sides resolves these downsides.
Customization and software
There are two separate RGB zones on the Logitech G Pro Wireless, one on the logo and the DPI lighting on the top. The DPI lighting displays up to three dots representing your current DPI setting for visual reference.
You can carry onboard up to five custom profiles configured in G-Hub. This way, you can switch seamlessly between configurations based on the game you’re playing or the task you’re completing. Onboard memory is particularly useful when playing different roles in FPS and MMO/MOBA games, and you want to change configurations quickly.
You can also set custom profiles in G-Hub for specific applications. This convenience feature can be incredibly useful if using the mouse for productivity.
G-Hub is fairly straightforward to use and has a limited learning curve, but it’s not as robust as software offered by some other gaming mice brands. That said, you’ll get the essentials that most gamers use, and you won’t get some of the more robust features intended for a small subset of the market that enjoys tweaking settings endlessly. Inside G-Hub, you can customize the Logitech G Pro Wireless settings.
- Remap your mouse buttons and enable G-Shift for an added layer of customization
- Adjust the DPI presets in increments of 50 from 100 to 25,600
- Adjust the polling rate from a list including 125, 250, 500, and 1000 Hz presets
- Customize the RGB lighting effects
- Set custom profiles by game and multiple custom profiles per game
- Check on battery levels and power consumption
- Disable/enable the use of the side buttons based on which hand you use
- Set up integrations with OBS and Discord
One rare feature is that G-Hub is fully compatible in macOS. Many other gaming mice can be used in macOS, but the customization software only works in Windows.
