Logitech G Pro X Superlight Review: Incredible Power That Won't Slow You Down

Logitech's G Pro Wireless has been one of the finest gaming mice since launching in 2018, but the company has truly outdone itself with its successor, the G Pro X Superlight.

Between its sensor, comfortable design, and absurdly light profile, it's ideal whether you're a novice or a seasoned professional.

Floats Like A Butterfly...

While its predecessor never felt particularly heavy, the Superlight is so light (around 60) that it feels as though it needs batteries added. It's 25% lighter than the prior model, but still packs an incredible feature set into such a small chassis.

In fact, the only real drawbacks are the removal of RGB lighting (although there's still a small LED indicator to show when it's on) and the lack of buttons on the right-hand side – making it less comfortable to left-handed use, but still feasible.

Most impressively, it doesn't feel any smaller in the hand than the G Pro – my large hands never once felt like they were eclipsing the device, even during some pretty sweaty Siege moments.

...Stings Like A Bee

Despite the smaller size, the Superlight still manages to use the company's HERO sensor. Offering rapid tracking and acceleration potential, the sensor means that despite being a wireless mouse, it never feels sluggish or as though you'd be better served plugging it in.

That's also thanks to the Lightspeed dongle that comes in the box, offering wireless speeds of 2.4GHz. It undoubtedly takes a few minutes to get used to the lack of heft, but once you do it's hard to go back. Even my standard (non-gaming) mouse, the Logitech MX Master 3, feels gargantuan by comparison.

Clicking is as satisfying as you'd expect, and while the scroll wheel feels understated, it's nice and quiet while still offering some nice, subtle feedback.

In terms of battery life, the Superlight offered up to around 70 hours in our testing, and charges via a MicroUSB to USB-A cable. It's a shame it's not USB-C, but it's still nice to know that you don't need to plug it in every few hours for a charge.

The Logitech G Hub software suite returns, and its swappable macros and profiles are ideal for switching between FPS or RTS.

The Hub also offers varying report rates, from 125Hz all the way to 1,000Hz, but since there's no RGB, don't expect to create light shows like you can with the manufacturers more colourful products.

The Verdict

It seems incredible to think that Logitech can fit this much accuracy and power in such a small, light device, but that's exactly what they've done.

If you're in the market for a gaming mouse, there are simply none better.
