Logitech Pro Wire­less Gam­ing Mouse

The king is dead! Long live the king!

We have re­viewed, praised and crit­i­cised count­less wire­less gam­ing mice over the years, and our cur­rent favourite is the ex­cel­lent Logitech G703 (see APC 446, page 33).

Friends, we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that the king is ba­si­cally dead: the G703 is no longer our ul­ti­mate favourite. The good news? The crown has been passed to the new G Pro Wire­less Gam­ing Mouse. This stripped-back mouse takes ev­ery­thing we loved about the G703 and ba­si­cally dumps any­thing you don’t need (like on-the-fly DPI switch­ing and op­tions to use smooth­ing or ac­cel­er­a­tion), keeps the top-notch Light­speed wire­less tech and Hero sen­sor combo, and chucks it all into a sim­ple­but-svelte body that’s suit­able for both left­ies and righters and weighs al­most noth­ing, mak­ing it supremely easy to flick around a mousepad.

The ‘G Pro’ in the name de­notes that this de­vice comes from Logitech’s range of pe­riph­er­als which are, sup­pos­edly, built with es­ports pros in mind. Don’t be in­tim­i­dated: this is gam­ing gear for play­ers who don’t want or need all the bling or ex­tra­ne­ous ex­tra fea­tures that nor­mally comes when you slap ‘gam­ing’ onto a PC prod­uct.

If you’re a fan of wire­less mice, this is now the one to beat. The only caveat? That $250 price. For such a stripped-back mouse, it’s hard to fathom why it costs so much. And with the G703 cost­ing about half that on the street, we’re think­ing there may still be room for two kings on the gam­ing mouse throne, af­ter all…
