Our Verdict

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is a superb wireless gaming mouse that’s lightweight, precise and very stylish.

Best Today: Logitech G Pro X Superlight

The Pro X Superlight looks about as straightforward as a pro-grade wireless gaming mouse can get, with an extremely minimalist right-handed design. In fact, it sports just five buttons: two main clicks, two left-side buttons, and a mouse wheel. Yet, its Hero sensor is anything but simple, treating gamers to a maximum resolution of 25,600 DPI and impressively fast tracking.

Although you won’t find any RGB lighting here, the Pro X Superlight just oozes sophistication, which makes you feel like you’ve got something really special. Like a fine leather wallet or designer bow tie, this mouse feels exceptionally well-made, offering pro or casual gamers a premium experience worth savoring.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight: Design and build

The most striking thing about the Pro X Superlight, as its name suggests, is its extremely light weight. It weighs less than 63 grams (2.3 oz), which Logitech G has achieved without including any weight-lowering perforations. That puts it on par with some of the lightest pro-grade wireless mice you can get—mice like the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro. Suffice to say, it’s a marvel to wield, feeling barely perceptible in your hand and providing frictionless play all day long.

But despite its weight, the Pro X Superlight is by no means flimsy, and feels both remarkably sturdy and surprisingly tactile. My review unit’s black, plastic top and sides provided me plenty of grip right out of the box. But adding the supplied extra grips did give me just that little bit more. These extra coverings also helped prevent the fingerprints that accumulated in my first few games.

The fingerprints that showed up were nothing drastic, but if they do bother you, you’ll be pleased to hear the Pro X Superlight also comes in pink, red, and white color options that look equally as stunning and will show fewer prints.

In a market where pro gaming mice are predominantly large it’s refreshing to see one as compact as the Pro X Superlight which measures just 4.9 x 2.5 x 1.6 inches. Such a compact size is ideal for gamers that use fingertip or claw grips who will find it easier than some mice to reach the trigger zone.

For connectivity, a 2.4GHz low-latency dongle provides a flawless Wi-Fi experience. There’s no Bluetooth connectivity to speak of, but this won’t be any big issue for serious gamers who will undoubtedly be happy with the faster and more stable Logitech G Lightspeed Wi-Fi connectivity, anyway.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight: Software

The Pro X Superlight makes use of Logitech’s G Hub software app, which is your one-stop shop for DPI calibrations, key assignments, and to set up or tweak the five onboard memory profiles. It’s a straightforward program that’s well laid out with visual cues and lists for easy navigation.

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

One of the best things about G Hub is that it splits up your assignments among five submenus. This makes it a whole lot easier to manage your most useful commands and actions. I have to lift my cap to Logitech G for incorporating support for Discord, OBS, and Overwolf in the Actions submenu, which allowed me to precisely allocate my streaming and audio preferences without any unnecessary time wastage.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight: Performance

The Pro X Superlight’s Hero sensor sports impressive specs, offering everything a pro gamer would want. That includes a max resolution of 25,600 DPI, tracking speed of 400 inches per second (IPS), and a polling rate of 1000Hz (ms).

Taking the mouse for a play test yielded excellent results. The sensor tracked really well, precisely keeping pace with my movements in games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. Of course, as impressive as it was, it’s just one feature in a panoply of factors that make this mouse a top-notch performer.

The Pro X Superlight’s buttery-smooth movement, for one, plays a huge part. This mouse glides across your mouse mat perfectly, which I put down to its well-placed PTFE feet as well as its sheer lightness.

On the underside, there’s a big chunk of PTFE up front and another ring of it around the cap over the dongle storage alcove at the back end. If you want even quicker movement, however, you need only swap out that default cap for the one in the box which is entirely covered in PTFE.

Being so lightweight, the Pro X Superlight makes full use of the sensor’s capabilities, allowing you to abandon heavy, full-hand movements for lighter, more precise ones. It can at times feel like you’re not moving much at all, but surprisingly you’re still actually having a big impact in your game. In fact, you can be very precise with hardly any effort.

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

The Pro X Superlight’s precision is enhanced by the mouse’s symmetrical design, which allows you to easily predict where your curser is. This made it a cinch to win ‘Last Chance’ scenarios in the game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, thereby allowing me to keep my character alive for longer. The buttons deserve praise too. They feel very soft and actuate with the lightest pressure.

With my device’s buttons up to the task of registering the fastest possible clicks, the emphasis was put back on my fingers to respond in like. And, after a while, I trained myself to make quicker clicks. It’s rare to find a mouse that challenges you like that—which is another reason I found this mouse such a pleasure to use.

Should you buy the Logitech G Pro X Superlight?

If you’re looking for a refined and attractive pro-grade gaming mouse that lives up to expectations and always delivers consistent performance, then it’s hard to look past the Logitech G Pro X Superlight for your next gaming session.

Design

Measuring 125 x 63.5 x 40 mm (HxWxD), the G Pro X Superlight is super compact and one of the lightest mice at 63g. It feels natural and ultra-comfortable to use.

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight comes in Black, White and Pink color options and has a very minimalist design. The mouse has a matte-textured finish and an ambidextrous design. It is made of high-quality plastic and is fully carbon neutral certified. The mouse is suitable for all hand sizes with any grip type.

The G Pro X Superlight transmits data via a USB dongle that can be connected directly to the PC. There is a USB-C port located on the front side which can be used to recharge the mouse.

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

There are a total of 5 buttons on the G Pro X Superlight, all of them can be remapped using the Logitech G HUB software.

At the top are left and right click buttons which we found to be very precise, crisp and quiet during our test. Located here is the scroll wheel that is quick and precise with good resistance. The scroll wheel itself is clickable and can be used to assign a function. Located here is also a small LED indicator to display CPI level set within the Logitech G Software.

At the base is a and power switch and a push-to-open removable panel that that reveals a storage slot to store the USB dongle. Finally, there are three PTFE to help with smooth, gliding movement. There is also a non-lit G logo on its back, and “Superlight” written on the right side.

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

Overall, the construction is fantastic and the G Pro X Superlight looks premium and ergonomic, it feels comfortable to use and glides smoothly. However, the included USB Type-A to Type-C cable is not braided and feels a bit cheap.

Features Performance

The G Pro X Superlight Wireless comes with Logitech’s Hero sensor and features an adjustable DPI between 100 – 25,600, tracking speed of 400 IPS and up to 40g of acceleration. The sensor offers accurate tracking with sensitivity adjustment options in 50 DPI steps.

Another highlight is that the mouse uses a built-in battery instead of replaceable ones, which makes it hassle-free to recharge. The USB-C port on the front side of the mouse can be used to recharge the mouse or to use the mouse in wired mode.

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

The default DPI settings on the mouse can be customized using Logitech G Hub software. It can also be manually switched using DPI button below the scroll wheel (once set via software).

In our everyday test, the mouse performed well and with very good overall impressions. Quick movements can be made with very less effort due to the mouse being extremely lightweight but can cause some soreness during long periods of use as it’s not very ergonomic. It can be easily adapted to your own preferences and skills with the Logitech G Hub software.

In addition, we never noticed any connection or delay issues. The main buttons click very precisely and feel light and crisp while being not too loud. The side buttons, are easily accessible and the matte, textured surface offers a very good grip. The scroll wheel offers excellent resistance and can be used with precision.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight Software

Mouse settings can be adjusted via the Logi G Hub software which you can download from Logitech’s website. The software allows customizing the button functions, adjusting CPI and polling rate, save up to five custom profiles in onboard memory and more.

Battery Life

In terms of battery life, Logitech promises up to 70 hours of use on full charge. In our tests, the mouse was fully functional for about the 50 hours we used it from a single charge and still kept going. It also charges back pretty quickly.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight wireless gaming mouse review

So, some of you may not know this, but I have a background in gaming. I was never a pro, but I worked with esports organisations before and I am familiar with gaming peripherals – keyboards, a good mouse etc.

Last Christmas, the good folks at Logitech asked if I would like to test out their Logitech G Pro X Superlight. Not one to say no to a good mouse, I happily accepted and they sent over the red version of the wireless gaming mouse to try out.

What is the Logitech G Pro X Superlight

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

The G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is packed with Logitech’s latest technologies and advancements and was developed in collaboration with a large group of the world’s best esports pros. It is Logitech’s lightest and fastest PRO mouse to date, and it features the LIGHTSPEED sensor, Logitech’s next-generation, pro-grade wireless technology that provides even more responsive and reliable connectivity.

It was previously only available in black, pink, and white, but it is now available in red for those who want to add a splash of colour to their gaming-grade setups.

The review

logitech, superlight, review, sleek, minimalism

Before I switched to the Logitech G Pro X Superlight, I was using a normal Microsoft wireless for my daily work and a Razer DeathAdder when (rarely nowadays) I play. Over the last few weeks, I’ve travelled a couple of times with the mouse and I’ve used it daily for everyday work tasks, as well as stress-tested it on some easy RTS games to see how tit fared.

The design of the Logitech G Pro X Superlight

First off, the design of the mouse is sleek and modern. It’s got a cool, futuristic look to it that I just love. And the best part? It’s super lightweight. I can’t even tell that I’m holding it most of the time, it’s that light.

If you’ve used the Logitech G Pro Wireless mouse (or the wired Logitech G Pro mouse), you’ll recognise the Logitech G Pro X Superlight right away. It has a nearly symmetrical black plastic chassis, a Logitech G logo in the centre of the palm rest, and very little else. There is a slight indentation on each side, but no finger rests. It’s not small for an ultralight mouse, but it’s also unadorned, which I tend to prefer for my peripherals.

The Superlight does not have any RGB lighting. While I generally prefer RGB lighting on mice, this is a wise omission because the lights add a little weight — and anyone buying an ultralight mouse is probably more concerned with functionality than with aesthetics.

Otherwise, even though there are no textured grips by default, you can add your own with the Superlight’s included stick-on grips.

Usage

This is where the Superlight really came through for me. Perhaps the biggest selling point for me was comfort. I travel a lot for work, so using my laptop on the go is pretty normal. The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is really easy to take around with, weighing less than 63g and has amazing battery life.

For gaming, it does everything it says it will. The wireless connection is lag-free and there’s no drag when making fast movements during games. However, I did notice that it took me some time to get used to the lack of resistance and smooth glide when playing, but it wasn’t a major hindrance.

Who should buy the Logitech G Pro X Superlight

Overall, I would rate this mouse a solid 8.5/10, because it delivers on what it says it does. However, the price and the relatively low functionality (really not a factor unless you’re a competitive gamer) do bring it down a few points.

If you do play games somewhat seriously or are like me, travel a lot and prefer using a mouse when you work – then the Superlight is definitely a strong choice.
