Logitech G Pro X Superlight review

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless Gaming Mouse is ridiculously light and phenomenally fast. For competitive gaming it’s a great choice for pinpoint accuracy, but the light weight comes with a number of omissions that makes longer gaming sessions a bit less enjoyable.

Competitive PC gamers are always trying to get the best hardware that money can buy, and a good gaming mouse is certainly one of the key components to FOCUS on. The Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless Gaming Mouse is probably the lightest mouse we’ve ever tested, and it’s an absolute joy to use.

The lightness comes with a few sacrifices – there’s no swanky RGB lighting, the body feels a bit smaller in your hand, and there’s no dedicated button for switching DPI levels. For some, these will be a worthy omission in favor of keeping the mouse as light as possible, but for others it might lead to other choices in Logitech’s gaming lineup.

Price and availability

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless Gaming Mouse is available now, and is priced at 149.99 (around £106; AU190).


There’s no denying that the G Pro X Superlight is a truly minimalist gaming mouse from Logitech. There are no bold curves or fancy RGB lighting here. Instead, you get a clean mouse in either black or white, that does everything that a good gaming mouse is supposed to.

In the box you get the mouse itself, along with a microUSB cable and the receiver dongle. While the cable may be microUSB, it still has its own proprietary design, so you’ll only be able to properly charge the mouse using this cable. We would have much preferred using a USB-C cable instead, but that’s a discussion for another day. The cable is long enough, but it does produce a big of drag on your mouse surface if you’re using the mouse when connected.

Underneath the mouse is where all the magic happens. There’s the Hero sensor that can track up to 25,600 DPI, along with PTFE feet that ensures your mouse glides across your mousepad. The small door at the bottom can be tilted open to reveal a storage compartment for the wireless receiver, and you can also swap out the cover for the included PTFE one to ensure even smoother travel.

The G Pro X Superlight can also be charged using Logitech’s Powerplay mat, which acts as a wireless charger as well as receiver in one unit. But at 120, the Powerplay system is incredibly expensive to splurge on, so you might have to be content with charging up the mouse the regular way when it needs a top up.

In terms of buttons, Logitech has kept only the essentials here as well. Five buttons in total are all you’ll get, consisting of a clickable scroll wheel, left and right mouse buttons, and two buttons near the thumb area. For gamers with slightly longer fingers or larger hands, the mouse won’t be too comfortable to use in a palm grip, and the thumb buttons can be a bit hard to reach in the heat of the moment.

For those with smaller hands, the G Pro X Superlight offers good support in both claw and palm grips, and there are even textured stick-on grips included in the box to make your grip even better.


You’ll need to download Logitech’s G Hub software in order to fully harness all of the features of the G Pro X Superlight. Here you can remap buttons, set individual profiles, as well as save up to five profiles on the mouse itself. Just bear in mind that you’ll need to assign one of the buttons to switch profiles before moving to another PC, otherwise you can only switch them by redownloading the software.

Performance-wise, the G Pro X Superlight is fantastic to play with. It quite literally feels like you’re not moving anything at all, so if you’re tired of dragging around a heavy mouse, then this is exactly the mouse to splurge on. From sniping in Overwatch to panning across levels in League of Legends, the G Pro X Superlight is a super-flexible mouse that knows what its strengths are.

The downside as mentioned before, is the physical support that the mouse provides. We found that after two hours of gaming we were definitely starting to feel a slight stiffness in our fingers as well as a slight soreness in our palm, possibly due to the lower arch of the mouse not being as supportive.

For anyone looking for long gaming marathons, the G Pro X Superlight can certainly serve you well, but your comfort levels will vary dramatically depending on the size of your hands. The other flip side of course, is that the mouse is designed for right-hand use only.

Battery life is quoted at around 70 hours, and without any RGB lighting or extra features, we can definitely see the G Pro X Superlight hitting that mark. After a week of heavy use we had to only charge it up towards the end of the week, so Logitech’s claims are mostly on point. Still, we would love for this mouse to have a sleeker charging solution than sticking in a microUSB cable.

Buy it if…

You’re into competitive gaming If you want the lightest mouse with the fastest response time, the G Pro X Superlight offers some phenomenal accuracy and tracking.

You want a no-frills gaming mouse The G Pro X Superlight strips away fancy designs and RGB lighting to produce a minimalist yet powerful gaming mouse.

Don’t buy it if…

You want better wrist support The G Pro X Superlight’s design may not be the best for long gaming sessions, so if you want more wrist support then you’re better off with Logitech’s other offerings instead.

You want better charging options The included charging cord is fine, but surely there are better wireless charging solutions that can come with a 149 mouse?

Max DPI: 25,600 Buttons: 5 Size: 4.9 x 2.5 x 1.6 inches Weight: 2.2 ounces

EDITOR’S NOTE: The Logitech G Pro X Superlight won “best gaming mouse” in the Tom’s Guide Awards 2021 for gaming.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is a mouthful of a name for an extremely no-frills mouse. Logitech’s latest wireless gaming mouse weighs in at an unbelievably light 2.2 ounces, eschewing everything from textured grips to RGB lighting in the process. That may sound like a tough compromise for a 150 mouse, but the tradeoff is incredibly worthwhile: The Superlight is the lightest gaming mouse on the market that doesn’t use a garish honeycomb design.

Having put the Superlight through its paces, I can confirm that it’s an excellent mouse, even if it’s not radically different from the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse that preceded it. Still, if you’ve been waiting for a mouse that feels as light as air, but doesn’t leave its innards exposed to every particle of dust on your desk, the Superlight is arguably the best gaming mouse you can buy. Read on for our full Logitech G Pro X Superlight review.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight review: Release date and price

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is available now, and costs 150, although you may be able to save a few dollars on that price with one of our Logitech promo codes.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight review: Design

If you’ve played with the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse (or the wired Logitech G Pro mouse), the Logitech G Pro X Superlight should be immediately recognizable. It’s a dead-simple design, with a nearly symmetrical black plastic chassis, a Logitech G logo in the center of the palm rest and barely anything else. There’s a slight indentation on either side, but no dedicated finger rests. For an ultralight mouse, it’s not that small — but it has no adornment, either.

Interesting, what the Superlight is not may be more important than what it is. As mentioned above, most ultralight gaming mice employ a divisive honeycomb design (a Logitech press release refers to “ridiculous holes”), which some players find uncomfortable, and which almost certainly attracts a lot of dirt and dust over time. The Superlight, on the other hand, is just a plain old mouse, demonstrating that it’s entirely possible to make a tried-and-true mouse design even lighter than some of its garish competitors.

In terms of buttons, the Superlight has a left button, a right button, a clickable scroll wheel (with tasteful white highlights), two thumb buttons, and that’s it. On the bottom, there are two large, gray gliding feet, as well as a compartment where you can store the USB hub, or connect the Logitech PowerPlay adapter (more on this later). It’s a gorgeous, minimalist mouse, and it would look just as home in an office as it would in a gaming nook.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight review: Features

Like all other Logitech G mice, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight runs on the Logitech G Hub software. Since there’s no RGB lighting to adjust this time around, the software is just for adjusting dots-per-inch (DPI) sensitivity, reassigning buttons and creating profiles for individual games and apps. All of these features work fine, although having to create new profiles from the main G Hub screen rather than being able to do so right from the mouse menu is a slight pain.

You have two options for connecting the Superlight: a standard USB dongle or the Logitech PowerPlay system. The dongle uses a 2.4 GHz connection; the PowerPlay connection is a proprietary method that requires a 100 mouse pad that charges the Superlight’s battery as you play. While PowerPlay is still pretty expensive, it’s good to see Logitech supporting this functionality in all of its high-end wireless mice. Either way, the wireless connection is flawless.

Without RGB lighting, the battery life is also impressive: Up to 70 hours on a charge. There are advantages to lightweight mice that go beyond how fast you can move them.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight review: Performance

I paid special attention to how it performed with Doom Eternal, as ultra-lightweight mice probably have more appeal for FPS players than fans of other genres. The mouse felt light enough that I was able to lower my DPI, offering a more precise aiming and shooting experience as I zipped around a battlefield, mowing down demons along the way.

In other genres, the Superlight worked well, but not any better than comparable mice. This one is probably better for the competitive crowd — or people who like to make big, sweeping gestures with their gaming mice.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight review: Verdict

Our Logitech G Pro X Superlight review highlights how the mouse makes good on its promise. Logitech wanted to marry an ultra-lightweight design with a premium feel and excellent performance, and succeeded on every count. Granted, the mouse is incredibly expensive, and almost identical to one of Logitech’s other mice. But if you believe that an extra ounce or so will make a huge difference in how you play, the Superlight gives you that option in style.

If weight isn’t your primary concern, the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse is a prettier gadget, and if weight is your primary concern, the HyperX Pulsefire Haste is slightly lighter. Otherwise, this is about the best balance of weight and features you can currently find from a trusted mouse manufacturer.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless Review

logitech, superlight, review, black

Logitech has delivered an incredibly precise gaming mouse with an absurd 63g footprint, making it one of the best choices for serious competitive gamers looking to cut the cord and upgrade. With a handy software suite and a terrific PTFE glide, even with that price tag, the G Pro X Superlight is providing serious bang for your buck.



A wireless mouse used to be a hard sell for competitive players, but now they’re all the rage, and Logitech leads the charge with the Logitech G Pro X Superlight Wireless mouse.

This dainty peripheral is built with eSports athletes and ambitious players in mind. The Superlight’s ultra-lightweight design allows users to skate across their mousepads with barely any resistance to secure headshots and win games.

There’s no doubt that is one of the best gaming mouse options in terms of performance, but that competitive edge comes with a competitive price tag, so you need to ensure you’ll make the most of it if you want to add this precise pointer to your setup.

Price and availability

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is available to buy right now, although Logitech has warned that “unprecedented demand” has led to unforeseen stock issues, so it may be difficult to get your hands on a unit.

The mouse is priced at £129.99/€149/149.99, making it more expensive than other eSports-grade gaming mice such as the Razer Viper 8K.


The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is a sophisticated mouse that offers peak performance in a minimalist package. There’s no fancy RGB or absurd franken-buttons to tinker with – it gives you exactly what you need.

Two responsive side buttons allow players to map extra inputs, but it’s clear the FOCUS here is on aim, which is the reason anything that could be deemed unnecessary has been stripped out, including an onboard DPI button. The result of this design-by-subtraction process is a mouse that looks sharp on your desk with its smooth sheen and small footprint.

logitech, superlight, review, black

It would be fair to call it light as a feather at just 63g, but the best part about this is that you’re not sacrificing much when it comes to comfort. The long, slightly concave silhouette gives your thumb an excellent anchor on the mouse as your palm is comforted and kept in place on top.

My only nitpick is that the smooth texture of the mouse makes it tricky to grip while making super-fast movements. However, Logitech does include some mouse grip stickers in the box to address this issue directly.

Speaking of grip, I’m a fingertip grip player, and the Superlight fit me like a glove right out of the box, with the PTFE feet letting me cover lanes and scout and pop enemies with ease. I even swapped in the PTFE aperture door on the bottom of the mouse for extra gliding potential – the frictionless feel of this mouse made one hell of a first impression.

logitech, superlight, review, black

Mouse clicks provide good feedback, but they aren’t loud and distracting, and the Superlight’s scroll wheel is solid but unremarkable. You can certainly feel the spokes as you zip through option menu dropdowns or articles in your browser of choice, which is the important part. The 70-hour battery life is another big selling point of the Superlight, letting you play for several days before requiring a charge.

With regards to the charging solution, it makes sense, but it’s pretty cumbersome. You attach a micro-USB cable bracket to the front of the Superlight and then pull it out once you’re done. You can remove this process entirely with one of Logitech’s PowerPlay wireless charging mousepads, but they’re expensive at £109.99/€135/119.99. It just feels like there should be a more intuitive option here.


The G Pro X Superlight exceeded my expectations when playing games. It’s the lightest mouse I’ve ever used, and you can feel the benefits of this immediately. Click latency is impressively low, and the PTFE feet make it Rapid on a mouse pad, perfect for adapting to high-intensity headshot-necessary situations in games such as Valorant and Overwatch.

I also noticed an accuracy increase in my beloved Left 4 Dead 2 as I tackled multiple pouncing Special Infected, saving my team during our favourite Versus campaigns. And even in more casual games such as Subnautica: Below Zero, I appreciated the accuracy while building bases and looting resources.

logitech, superlight, review, black

With regards to connectivity, I didn’t experience any dropouts, hitching or interruptions while using the Superlight, which tells me that Logitech’s dongle and Lightspeed 2.4 GHz wireless technology is up to scratch with the rest of the package.

There’s a noticeable lack of Bluetooth support here, which means you don’t get dual wireless options like with the Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro. However, Bluetooth is only really useful for saving on battery life and swapping between devices effortlessly, as it isn’t as speedy as Lightspeed.

Elsewhere, the DPI on the Superlight ranges from 100 to 25,600 thanks to the Hero 25K sensor, so you’re covered regardless of how sensitive you like you mouse to be. And even with high sensitivity, you can still maintain plenty of precision in combat, thanks to the Superlight’s comfortable contours.

That precision can be handy for productivity and creative suite tasks, too – but if you primarily work with Adobe apps, you’re probably better served by something from Logitech’s MX Master series.

Software and lighting

You don’t need to engage with the software to enjoy the Superlight, since it’s plug-and-play from the jump. However, the Logitech G Hub lets you customise your DPI, change input bindings, and create profiles to switch between via onboard memory should you need to.

The desktop suite is mostly optional but very functional, and nice to look at, too – I mainly used it to check the specific battery percentage of the Superlight throughout the testing period.

logitech, superlight, review, black

Lighting is non-existent on this mouse beyond a power LED at the centre of the device that indicates when the unit needs charging. I don’t miss the zany RGB seen on other mice here – especially when the Superlight looks so slick with just the ‘G’ motif on the back of the palm rest.

Serious players of competitive FPS and MOBA titles should definitely consider purchasing the Logitech G Pro X Superlight if they want to be at the top of their game. The design isn’t much to look at, but performance makes up for it in droves – and that’s what matters when you’re peeking corners and clutching for your team with Rapid precision.

Should you buy it?

You want a top-notch gaming mouse for eSportsWith its absurdly lightweight build, comfortable contours and blazing-fast DPI, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is ideal for competitive gaming.

You want to save money by switching to a wired mouse If the price tag is putting you off then you may want to consider picking up a precise wired gaming mouse such as the Razer Viper 8K, which is a little heavier at 71g but retails at £79.99.


Logitech has delivered an incredibly precise gaming mouse with an absurd 63g footprint, making it one of the best choices for serious competitive gamers looking to cut the cord and upgrade. With a handy software suite and a terrific PTFE glide, even with that price tag, the G Pro X Superlight is providing serious bang for your buck.

  • Logitech’s G Pro X Superlight is a wireless gaming mouse free from fluff and unnecessary features.
  • The mouse weighs only 63 grams but, unlike a lot of other ultralight mice, it still uses a traditional shell design.
  • The device features five buttons, long battery life, and a nice mix of accessories.
  • It takes some time to get used to and it’s not cheap, but the G Pro X Superlight delivers high-end accuracy for impressive gaming performance.
  • The Logitech G Pro X Superlight will be available before the end of December for 150.

Logitech is one of the top players in the computer peripherals space, and the company didn’t rise to the top by sitting around idly watching competitors set trends. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Logitech is expanding its presence in the wireless ultralight gaming mouse market.

With the existing Logitech G Pro (130), the company already has a high-end wireless mouse that meets the 80 gram specification for ultralight — but what would happen if Logitech pushed the G Pro Wireless to the extreme?

That’s where the brand-new G Pro X Superlight Wireless comes in. The mouse is listed at just 63 grams, but it’s actually even lighter. It carries over everything great about the Pro Wireless — such as the shape, sensor, and wireless tech — but ditches that model’s superfluous RGB and extra modular buttons.

The result? A 150 wireless ultralight mouse that focuses on the essentials. But does the mouse deliver high-end performance on par with its high-end asking price? Well, after spending some quality time with the G Pro X Superlight, we think enthusiasts will be more than pleased with what the mouse has to offer.


In a world of flashy, hole-ridden, shiny mice, the Pro X Superlight Wireless stands apart. It sports the goods — the Hero (High Efficiency Rating Optical) sensor, Lightspeed wireless tech, an internal battery, play-charge ability, and slick PTFE feet — but does so with a refined, smooth, and sedate design marked by a standard matte shell. There is no honeycomb exterior or RGB lighting here, just a single but useful LED. The Pro X Superlight Wireless has only five buttons and one power switch.

In terms of ergonomics, the shape is almost ambidextrous. That said, the side buttons are fixed on the left, so it’s still positioned as a right-handed mouse. At first blush when picking up the mouse, it’s almost lacking gravitas. It’s thin and ultralight, but I feel a void where the top of my palm rests that takes some getting used to.

Logitech lists the mouse as weighing 63 grams, but when I weighed the unit out of the box I got a slightly lighter measurement of 62 grams. With the USB dongle out and the aperture door on (which is how I use it), the mouse weighs only 60.2 grams.

The unit that I reviewed is matte black, though the Pro X Superlight Wireless is also available in white. While I enjoy the Hyper-minimalist look, the styling can feel a little drab.

Setup and interface

Setting up the Pro X Superlight Wireless is a fairly smooth process. After tearing off the plastic wrap, the stiff two-piece box opens to reveal the mouse. It’s a premium box for a premium product, but it’s somehow also efficient. Underneath the mouse is a packaging tray and under that rests the USB-A Lightspeed wireless receiver, wireless receiver adapter, and square paper box. That paper box not only contains the charging/data cable (USB-A to micro-USB Logitech Trident), but also a small assortment of accessories within a clear envelope.

Considering how focused and minimalist the Pro X Superlight Wireless is, one might wonder what accessories are really necessary. First, there’s an alternate aperture door with a PTFE surface, and second, there’s a grip kit. The grip kit consists of a cloth wipe to clean the mouse, and a sheet of pre-cut grip tape. In effect, the smooth matte surface of the mouse can be made super grippy.

The mouse features an aperture door underneath that conceals the storage slot for the wireless dongle. The door is attached by two small magnets, and is easy to intentionally pop off. The alternate door is the same, but adds a large stretch of PTFE surface. If you want the mouse to be lighter, you even have the option to use it without either door.

Besides these fun customization options, the Pro X Superlight Wireless is very straightforward in its setup. You just unwrap the cable and plug it into the mouse, which allows you to toy with it right away while it charges. Installing the G Hub software allows you to set the sensitivity.

I don’t miss the RGB and modular buttons found on the Pro Wireless model but, out of the box, the lack of a dedicated DPI button is noticeable. That said, you can assign one of the programmable buttons to be a DPI control if you choose.

Performance and features

It might not seem obvious when looking at specs, but achieving great battery life in the lab and in use can be two different things. This is one of the areas where Logitech excels, and the Pro X Superlight Wireless is a great example. It’s efficient and intelligent at managing power, and even supports Powerplay for people who want to wirelessly charge the mouse via a Powerplay mouse pad.

I can step away from gaming sessions with “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” and come back without having to worry about whether the mouse will wake up. I can run my PC day and night while gaming without being concerned that I’m running the battery down.

Of course, at some point the Pro X Superlight Wireless does need to be plugged in. It lets me know well before it dies. (As if I could be patient enough to let it die.) The battery notification comes via the G Hub or the small LED on the dorsal side of the mouse. The trident Micro USB port connects easily, and I like to run it cabled for a little while to let it charge. I’d only ever bother using the power switch if I’m taking the Pro X Wireless on the road.

Since I’m familiar with other Logitech mice, you’d think that it would be easy for me to adjust to the Pro X Superlight Wireless, but that’s not quite the case. It’s lighter than I’m used to while also feeling a shade or two more precise. This is all to say that it’s taken some adjustment to be able to use it. I’ve had to actively practice using the mouse in games and in Windows. And yes, that means lots of sessions in 3D Aim Trainer.

For a new mouse, there’s been a greater amount of readjustment on my part than I typically need. I had some hardware concerns at first, but I think the mouse ultimately behaves very consistently. In fact, I think that consistency is a key element of the Pro X Superlight Wireless’ DNA, as it’s a factor that eSports stars crave. Overall, the Pro X Superlight Wireless is adroit and responds well — two key performance factors that aren’t always synonymous with gaming mice, and certainly not with wireless ultralight mice.

Problems with the Logitech G Pro X Superlight

It’s not a deal breaker, but a DPI button would allow me to use the Pro X Superlight Wireless out of box sooner. It would also make it easier to let other people use the mouse with their preferred settings.

Speaking of buttons, the thumb (default back) button is really not my favorite. It’s either too recessed, or doesn’t satisfy when depressed. I also would have loved some kind of included travel case for the mouse to avoid blemishes when transporting in my backpack.

Finally, though the performance gains are beneficial for enthusiasts, the potential adjustment period needed for buyers who aren’t accustomed to a mouse this light or precise could be a downside to casual gamers.

Should you buy it?

If you are looking for a wireless ultralight mouse and you don’t mind putting in some effort with your muscle memory to adjust to its precision demands, then the Pro X Superlight Wireless is the mouse to buy. Casual gamers, however, might want to consider cheaper and less demanding options.

Which model should you get?

The standard Logitech G Pro Wireless isn’t going anywhere for now. At 80 grams, it’s heavier than the new Pro X Superlight, but it’s 20 cheaper. The new Pro X Superlight Wireless benefits from lessons learned from that older model, however. Coupled with its lighter design, we think it’s worth the extra money for gaming enthusiasts.

What are your alternatives?

The Pro X Superlight Wireless is more of an engineering feat than eye Candy. Cheaper ultralight mice, such as the wired Glorious Model O and the SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless, are more visually interesting. Likewise, I think those mice take less of an adjustment.

The Aerox 3 Wireless is a bit more casual and stylish, while the Pro X Superlight is more demanding. But, anyone looking for a real enhancement in skill won’t shy away from the challenge of the Pro X Superlight Wireless. The Pro X Superlight also offers much better battery performance, and I prefer its software.

The bottom line

With the Pro X Superlight Wireless, Logitech strikes back and, in all likelihood, sets a new standard for wireless ultralight gaming mice. I think its biggest flaw is that it demands for users to be more precise in their movements. That’s a pretty serious ask for a gaming mouse, but the rewards are high for those who really crave high-end performance.

Ultimately, I think the Pro X Superlight is a little too extreme for my tastes, but if it was my goal to find a lighter mouse to improve my accuracy then this would be the model I’d choose.

Pros: Great feel, traditional shell design, impressive sensor sensitivity, supports play-charging, internal battery, long battery life

Cons: DPI adjustments are PC app-dependent, basic looks, back thumb button is finicky, could take some getting used to
