The Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 is Logitech G’s latest entry into the gaming mouse market, and it’s one that’s trying to take the crown as the most popular mouse for professional players.
Weighing in at just 60 grams, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 is the lightest mouse I’ve ever personally used. And despite it seemingly having less material in order to hit the weight it has, there doesn’t appear to be any compromises with it.
The mouse’s battery life comes in around 95 hours, according to Logitech. I’ve been using it for about three weeks now (as of writing) for both work and play, and I’ve only had to charge it twice. Based on that, I’d say the claims are pretty accurate.
In addition to the weight and battery life, the mouse boasts a max DPI of up to 32,000 with tracking over 500 inches per second.
Another new design feature is the Superlight 2 making the jump to USB-C from micro-USB. It may be small to some, but it’s nice to not have to search for an old cable to charge my mouse. Speaking of charging, it’s compatible with Logitech G’s powerplay wireless charging system.
Using The Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2
I play many games that require fast, twitchy movement of the mouse to have success. From first-person shooters like Escape From Tarkov and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to RTS titles like Age of Empires 2, I need to be able to move quickly and accurately. This mouse offers me the best way to do that before bringing my “skill” into effect. I’ve never been able to move across the screen or click a specific location on my screen as quickly as I can with this mouse. It’s night and day how much quicker I can move just by cutting out a few grams caused by extra buttons or a AA battery.
What’s great about the mouse is that it feels perfect in my hands, which is tough. I don’t have the largest hands in the world, so finding a gaming mouse that allows my hands to comfortably sit on it and get the full motion is tough. For over two years I’ve used the Razer Orochi V2 gaming mouse for that specific reason. But now, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 has taken the daily driver spot over for me. It’s a little larger in my hand than the Orochi V2, but it’s still comfortable enough for me to use. Even the two side buttons sit in a nice place under my thumb on the left-hand side. It would’ve been nice to have right-side buttons for left-handed users, but it’s clear they were left off to keep the weight low.
And don’t worry. Even if you have larger hands, this mouse will still work for you. I had a couple of people with larger hands than mine give the mouse a try, and both found it comfortable to use. However, one did say he felt it was a bit too small for his liking.
When paired with its included receiver, the Pro X Superlight 2 has a max polling rate of 2,000 Hz. For those that don’t know, that’s how often the mouse sends its position back to the device it’s paired with. So, obviously, the higher the better. And while the 2,000 Hz rate is great, it’s only really noticeable on monitors with higher refresh rates. You aren’t likely to feel a difference between 1,000 Hz and 2,000 Hz on a 75Hz monitor. That means if you have a multi-pair keyboard receiver that you want to pair the Pro X Superlight 2 with in order to have fewer dongles attached you your machine, being limited to 1,000 Hz likely won’t hurt you.
Lastly, though it’s sure to be divisive amongst users, I actually like the soft and quiet middle scroll wheel. Some might like the more “clicky” and rigid scroll wheels, but I prefer the silent and soft design.
From a software standpoint, the Logitech G Hub software offers a number of presets to get the performance you’re looking for. It also allows you to customize your own profiles or download ones online to try out.
Ultimately, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 and its value to you is going to come down to your preference. How light are you looking in a new mouse? What features do you want? How do you like to hold them when playing?
That said, for my money, this is the best lightweight gaming mouse ever. Hell, I could argue it might be the best gaming mouse I’ve ever used, period.
The Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 is available now for $159.99 in either black, white, or pink.
