Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse lets elite gamers cut the cord

If you're an elite esports player and your mouse isn't serving you well, Logitech might have an upgrade just for you. The company says its G Pro Wireless gaming mouse is the product of consultations with “more than 50” esports pros worldwide, and its wireless chops have been proven in battle. The company says players have been using the G Pro Wireless in competitions for months.

The G Pro itself has everything players need and nothing they don't. It's an ambidextrous design with back and forward buttons on both sides, plus two main buttons and a clickable scroll wheel. It weighs just 80 grams to minimize inertia as gamers fling it across a mouse pad. Despite that feathery weight, this mouse still has all the gear required to transmit wirelessly and charge continuously using Logitech's PowerPlay system.

Logitech's new HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) 16K sensor is the eye of this rodent. It promises a 100 DPI–16,000 DPI sensitivity range and one-to-one tracking across that entire range, and it can maintain those characteristics at speeds of up to 400 inches per second. Logitech will also be adding the HERO 16K sensor and a new low-friction cable design to its existing G Pro wired mouse.

The G Pro Wireless wouldn't be complete without RGB LED lighting, and Logitech illuminated its logo with one of those 16.7-million-color diodes so gamers can make it their own. The G Pro Wireless also supports Logitech's Lightsync RGB technology to march in step with other RGB LED-illuminated peripherals.

The G Pro Wireless will be available this month for $149.99, and gamers can pre-order it today at Logitech's website.

    $149? For a MINIMALIST RGB lit mouse? Hell no. AFAIK, it’s a built-in battery as well, which isn’t very convenient when drained, or when the battery stops holding a charge.

    Gaming mice have steadily been declining into cheap junk sold at obscene prices, and Logitech has been my holdout for quality, with the g700s screaming premium hardware.

    If I’m going to spend that kind of money on a mouse, it’s going to be a Swiftpoint Z, and I would probably recommend that to anyone in the market for a gaming mouse today.

    There’s no justification for $149 on hardware this bare bones, and screaming of battery issues. PC gaming is becoming a joke with overpriced garbage on every front.

      GAMERZ-marketed stuff is often junky, but I find today’s PC hardware to be more reliable than any other decade.

        In general, yes. But it seems we have peaked in both value and product quality several years ago, and instead are getting $10 Chinese made mice that sell for $20 under off brands, but $150 under name brands like Logitech.

        $150 better be delivering a lot of features, but this mouse has less buttons, and removed the dual mode scroll wheel. There’s no way this mouse is worth that price. You’re paying for the RGB lighting, and that’s it. Even the shape looks like the old Microsoft mice.

        That’s what this mouse is, a Microsoft mouse clone with RGB lighting sold at a ridiculous price.

    I’m pretty happy with my $40 bluetooth logitech mouse, even if it’s middle click is on a discrete button instead of the scroll wheel. Theoretically bluetooth will hold me back from world top scores, but so does my utter lack of talent.

      [quote<]even if it's middle click is on a discrete button instead of the scroll wheel[/quote<] That is a personal fantasy, what mouse is this? I hate clicking scroll wheels

          Definitely a feature, not a bug. Pretty cool.

      What’s that mouse model? I actually need that discrete middle button!
