The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a great wireless gaming mouse that's very versatile for pretty much anything you want to do. It has very good performance, which can be customized to your movement preference inside its app. This mouse has an ambidextrous design so both left and right-handed people can use it. Its size and shape are nice and comfortable, which is suitable for almost every hand size and grips, other than small hands using the fingertip grip. Nevertheless, the Pro Wireless is one impressive mouse, especially due to its very low wireless latency.

Our Verdict

8.2 Mixed Usage

Very good for mixed usage. The Logitech G Pro Wireless has a straightforward design that's suitable for pretty much any use. Its ambidextrous design and size can also suit most grips and hand sizes, although smaller hands might have trouble using the mouse with a fingertip grip. On the upside, its performance is excellent for gaming, especially with such a low latency when used wirelessly.

See our Mixed Usage recommendations
8.0 Office/Multimedia

Great for office. The mouse is very well-built and offers good ergonomics for pretty much every grip and size, but might be a bit harder to control if you have small hands and prefer using the fingertip grip. You can get up to eight programmable buttons, which should be more than enough for most people.

7.8 Travel

Good for traveling. Thanks to its wireless design, you don't have a cable in your way and can easily use it with a laptop. However, don't forget to put its receiver into the storage situated on the underside of the mouse.

8.5 Video Games (FPS)

Excellent for video games like FPS. The mouse has very low latency, both wired and wirelessly, which is quite impressive. It also fits almost all hands, regardless of the grip, although small hands might have trouble with the fingertip grip. There aren't a lot of programmable buttons like MMO mice, but eight buttons should be more than enough for FPS games. Note that when used wired, the rubbery cable does drag on the desk, which can get frustrating.

See our Video Games (FPS) recommendations
8.6 Video Games (MMO)

Excellent for video games like MMOs. The mouse has very low latency and has a few programmable buttons. It won't offer as many as some dedicated MMO mice, but having four side buttons is unique for this type of mouse. It's also suitable for all hand sizes with practically any grip, but fingertip grip with smaller hands isn't as recommended.

See our Video Games (MMO) recommendations
8.3 Ultra-Light Gaming

When used wirelessly, the Logitech G Pro Wireless can be a very good ultra-light gaming mouse. It might not be as light as some honeycomb-patterned mice for a lighter gaming experience, but its performance is still excellent at a very low weight. It also has very minimal latency when used wirelessly. Ultra-light gaming mice are usually wired, so this can be an excellent compromise.

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a pretty standard looking mouse, with a single RGB zone on the logo, situated on the back of the mouse. It's made out of matte plastic, which looks nice and doesn't give you the feel of a gaming mouse.

The G Pro Wireless is fairly light when used wirelessly, although not as much as some ultra-light gaming mice we've reviewed.

The G Pro mouse is fairly portable. It isn't too big and doesn't have a wire that's always connected, so it's a bit easier to pack for traveling. There's also receiver storage on the underside of the mouse.

Build Quality

The G Pro Wireless' build quality is great. This is an all-plastic design that feels dense and sturdy, and no wobble is perceivable. The feet are good and slide well too. You can also switch the side buttons to the left or right side, which is useful. Note that if you hear rattling when shaking the mouse, it's the left and right-click buttons moving a bit.

The G Pro Wireless' ergonomics are good. This mouse has an ambidextrous design where you can put side buttons on either side of the mouse, or even choose to only have two on one side. It's great for both left or right hands, but there aren't any ergonomic features on this mouse. On the upside, it fits a wide range of hands in different grips. If you prefer a right-slanted design, check out the Razer Basilisk Ultimate instead or you can check the very comfortable wired Zowie S2, which is available in two different sizes.

The G Pro mouse comes with a USB receiver that can also be connected to an adapter which is then connected to the cable. This puts the receiver in closer range of the mouse, for better performance. This Logitech mouse also has an auto-off timer of 5 minutes to save battery life.

The cable of the Logitech G Pro Wireless is just okay. It's a bit stiff and the rubber grips onto things on your desk and creates some dragging when using the mouse wired. On the upside, you can also use the cable as a range extender, to be sure to get a minimal distance between the receiver and the mouse.

The click latency of this mouse is quite impressive. You shouldn't notice any delay when using the G Pro Wireless, wired or wirelessly. You can plug in the receiver into the USB adapter, which is then connected to the cable. This allows you to put the receiver closer to the mouse on your desk rather than on your PC, allowing for better performance.

The Logitech G HUB software is excellent for gaming and offers plenty of customization options. It offers customization for its lighting, performance, and buttons, and you can even set a G-Shift button, which acts just like a Shift Key on your keyboard. Pressing this button will enable a second set of controls on your mouse. The mouse also has onboard memory, so it'll keep its settings if you use it on a different computer.

The G Pro Wireless is fully compatible with both Windows and macOS, making it quite versatile. All buttons work, and since the software is compatible with macOS as well, you can easily customize the settings regardless of the OS you're using.

Compared to other mice

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is one of the best wireless gaming mice we've reviewed so far. It stands apart thanks to its near-universal design that feels nice in most hands sizes and grips. It also has amazing performance and is quite customizable, on top of being fully compatible with macOS, which most gaming mice aren't. See our recommendations for the best mice and the best wireless mice.

Logitech G903
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a more versatile mouse than the Logitech G903. While they're both great for gaming with a wide, customizable CPI range and very low latency, the G Pro is quite a bit lighter and has removable side buttons so you can customize the mouse to your own personal preferences. On the other hand, the G903 has a better cable and a much better mouse scroll wheel. Both mice are great for all hand sizes and grip styles, except small hands may have a difficult time with a fingertip grip on both.

Razer Viper Ultimate
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Razer Viper Ultimate is a slightly better mouse than the Logitech G Pro Wireless. It has a few more programmable buttons and its cable, when used wired, is noticeably lighter and less cumbersome. The design of the Razer is also more ergonomic. On the other hand, the G Pro Wireless is a bit more versatile since it is fully compatible with macOS, which the Viper Ultimate isn't. You can also have a higher CPI with the Razer, but we don't expect many people to use such a high sensitivity anyway.

Razer DeathAdder Elite
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a more versatile gaming mouse than the Razer DeathAdder Elite as it can be used both wired or wireless, with very low latency either way. The G Pro is also a bit lighter weight than the DeathAdder Elite and is more suitable for small hands when using claw grip. However, some people may prefer the more slanted shape of the DeathAdder Elite instead of the more typical and straight design of the G Pro.

Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED Wireless
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Logitech G Pro Wireless and the G502 Wireless perform similarly but have very different designs. The G502 LIGHTSPEED is heavy and bigger, with more buttons and an unlockable scroll wheel. The G Pro Wireless has a smaller, ambidextrous design with two side buttons on each side of the mouse. It's also noticeably lighter than the G502 LIGHTSPEED. The G502 is designed for a palm grip, while the G Pro Wireless might be fine for a wider variety of grips.

Razer Basilisk Ultimate
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The Logitech G Pro Wireless and the Razer Basilisk Ultimate are very similarly-performing gaming mice. The Basilisk Ultimate has more programmable buttons, a lower click latency, and a higher max CPI. On the other hand, the G Pro has a unique design with multiple button options, and its companion software is fully compatible with macOS or Windows.

Logitech G502 Hero

B&H

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a better gaming mouse than the Logitech G502 Hero. Its wireless design is noticeably lighter. It's also smaller and is suitable for almost every grip and hand size. On the other hand, the G502 has a better cable and its wheel has tilt inputs and can be unlocked for infinite scrolling.

BenQ Zowie S2
SEE PRICE
Newegg.com

The BenQ Zowie S2 and the Logitech G Pro Wireless are very different mice. The S2 is a great wired and straightforward gaming mouse while the G Pro Wireless is wireless and has access to software for customization options. The S2 is slightly more comfortable and is available in two sizes, but the G Pro Wireless feels a bit more high-end.

Alienware AW610M
SEE PRICE

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a much better gaming mouse than the Alienware AW610M. The G Pro feels better-built, can be used by more hand sizes with more grip types, has significantly lower latency, and has more programmable buttons. On the other hand, the AW610M is more ergonomic and has more RGB lighting.
