Log­itech G Pro Gam­ing Mouse

Ro­dent prow­ess.

APC Australia - - Super Guide » Gaming Mice -

The G Pro is part of Log­itech’s range of stripped-back gam­ing prod­ucts, with fewer fea­tures but bet­ter build qual­ity. (Why it still has 16.8 mil­lion colours of LED light­ing, though, is be­yond us...) You only get the stan­dard six but­tons on this model, but they’re well positioned, and all pro­gram­mable us­ing Log­itech’s ex­cel­lent soft­ware, which is some of the most-pol­ished and in­tu­itive in the biz.

The cas­ing is black plas­tic in a more clas­sic rounded shape, with the shell un­bro­ken apart from splits around the but­tons, and the gaps for the (dreaded) light­ing. It’s unadorned with grippy pan­els or thum­brests, lead­ing to a spar­tan look, off­set by a sin­gle shiny patch for­ward of the scroll­wheel. That rolling disc it­self is pleas­ingly broad, deeply ridged, and takes a com­fort­able shove to go from one notch to the next. There’s noth­ing spe­cial about the wheel’s fin­ish, how­ever — it’s just a plas­tic cir­cle with­out a rub­ber tire or soft-touch coat­ing, but it is well de­signed and fairly sat­is­fy­ing to use.

Feel is ev­ery­thing for a pe­riph­eral that spends so much time in your hand. It’s en­gi­neered to be ex­tremely ac­cu­rate, with the fairly-ubiq­ui­tous PMW3366 op­ti­cal sen­sor (used in al­most all of Log­itech’s gam­ing mice), the ab­sence of any smooth­ing or pixel round­ing, and some clever metal springs un­der the main but­tons; the nicely braided cord is a de­cent 2m in length; and its smooth matte fin­ish feels good in the hand.

$69 | WWW.LOG­ITECH.COM Sen­sor: 12,000dpi op­ti­cal (PMW3366); De­sign: right-handed, 6 but­tons; Cable: 2m, braided; Di­men­sions: 11.7 x 6.2 x 3.8cm; 85g
