Logitech continues to rely on its Lightspeed wireless technology to equip its gaming mice. After an already convincing first step with the G900 at the start of 2016, then several globally successful models using the same technologies, the Swiss manufacturer offers a brand new new product which this time focuses on lightness: the G Pro Wireless, a wireless mouse designed for professional players, but who has enough to satisfy a much wider audience.

Positive points

Very light for a wireless model.

Several days of autonomy.

Compatibility with Powerplay wireless charging.

High performance optical sensor.

Impeccable wireless connection.

Pleasant handling / Slightly dirty coating.

Totally ambidextrous / Removable slice buttons.

Bad points

No grips on the edges (the price of lightness, however).

Our review


Developed specifically for its wireless mice, the Hero sensor (for "High Efficiency Rated Optical") from Logitech evolves into a "16K" version. A name that corresponds to its maximum sensitivity of 16,000 dpi and an extreme level of sensitivity that still does not help much with our current screens, since even using a configuration with three Ultra HD 4K screens, it only takes one 2 cm movement to move the point across the entire width of the display. We will say that such a sensor will still be good when the screens arrive ... 16K!

What interests us more, however, are the sensor recognition performance in a game situation, that is to say at much more reasonable sensitivities (most professional players evolve at less than 4,000 ppi, or even less than 1000 dpi). And there, with operation guaranteed up to speeds of 10.16 m / s and accelerations of 40 g, we can be reassured, the sensor does not risk to hang up and supports the most abrupt movements. Precision is impeccable with 1: 1 tracking without smoothing or acceleration.

The only precaution to take, optical technology requires, banish too shiny or transparent coatings. To our great surprise, however, the mouse manages to work on Plexiglas or even on certain glass supports, but with the risk of the sensor detaching. However, we can only recommend the use of a good mouse pad in order to benefit from optimal precision, but also from better gliding which will at the same time avoid using the skates too quickly.

Regarding the wireless connection, we make the same observation here as with the last Logitech mice equipped with Lightspeed technology. Swiss engineers have a perfect grasp of their subject and here we take advantage of a mouse as fast as a wired one, without additional latency, with an exchange frequency set to 1000 Hz (1 ms). The same goes for the stability of the signal which proved to be imperturbable during our tests. Logitech nevertheless recommends, as far as possible, to get as close as possible to the USB transceiver of the mouse thanks to the cable and the adapter supplied. It is therefore better to avoid being satisfied with a connection to a central unit which would be under the desk, although our tests in this configuration did not reveal any particular deterioration of the signal. This advice is especially valid in an environment loaded with various waves, that is to say more particularly in lan-parties.



Free from the wire, the G Pro Wireless offers the luxury of being as powerful and light, if not more, than many wired mice. Pleasant in hand, ambidextrous, it has what it takes to satisfy a very large number of players, whether they are pros in eSports or not.
