Logi tec h G Pro
All the mice in this group test take a ‘less is more’ route, but the Logitech G Pro really pushes it to the limit. With just six buttons, it has the joint fewest in this test, and there’s very little else to this mouse besides. You get a light-up logo and stripe and a braided cable, but otherwise this is as basic is it gets. Even its ambidextrous-looking design isn’t a real feature, as it only has buttons on the left side of the mouse.
It’s physically not much of a mouse, either. At just 60mm x 114mm x 36mm and weighing in at 85g, it’s the smallest and second lightest mouse in this test. This, Logitech says, is what makes it appealing, as esports gamers prefer lighter mice.
However, in my tests I found it a bit too small and lacking in contouring. In particular, its sides slope in a little too sharply, making your fingers slide under the mouse, rather than grip the sides. Likewise, the lack of texturing or rubber on the sides means it doesn’t grip as well. Thankfully, its low weight means these shortcomings aren’t felt so acutely, as it’s easy to pick up anyway.
Meanwhile, performance can’t be faulted. Logitech’s new 16,000 DPI optical Hero sensor is superb. It’s just the small size and shape that I take issue with.
