The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is an excellent gaming mouse versatile enough for office use. Even though it doesn't have a honeycomb design, it's still among the lightest mice we've ever tested, which is especially impressive considering it's wireless. It offers amazing performance whether used wired or wirelessly, with a very low click latency and a high polling rate, and its CPI can be customized precisely by increments of 50. It's suitable for all hand sizes with any grip type, although the side buttons may be hard to reach with a fingertip grip if you have small hands. All of its buttons can be reprogrammed, and you can also set a G-Shift button to give you a second layer of controls, but this may not be enough buttons for some MMO gamers. This mouse is very similar to the Logitech G Pro Wireless, except the SUPERLIGHT is significantly lighter and it only has two side buttons that can't be removed.

Our Verdict

7.9 Office/Multimedia

The Logitech PRO X SUPERLIGHT is very good for office use and feels excellently built. While its straight, ambidextrous design isn't as ergonomic as some dedicated office mice, it's still very comfortable with any grip type for almost all hand sizes. All of its buttons can be reprogrammed in the Logitech G Hub software, and it's fully compatible with both Windows and macOS.

Pros
  • Excellent build quality.
  • Fully compatible with macOS and Windows.
  • Reasonable number of buttons.
Cons
  • Too large for small hands using fingertip grip.
  • No Bluetooth support.
8.8 Video Games (FPS)

The Logitech PRO X SUPERLIGHT is excellent for FPS gaming. Despite not having a honeycomb design, this mouse is still amazingly light, and it's among the lightest wireless mice we've tested. It has excellent build quality, a very low click latency, a high maximum polling rate, and nice PTFE feet that glide outstandingly well. It's suitable for any grip type, although small hands may struggle to reach the side buttons with a fingertip grip.

Pros
  • Amazingly low click latency.
  • Extremely light.
  • Excellent build quality.
  • Fully compatible with macOS and Windows.

  • Excellent build quality.
  • Fully compatible with macOS and Windows.
Cons
  • Too large for small hands using fingertip grip.

It has the same ambidextrous shape as the Logitech G Pro Wireless, except it doesn’t have two additional buttons on its right side. There’s a non-lit G logo on its back, and the word “Superlight” is written on its right side.

Build Quality

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT has excellent build quality. It’s made entirely of lightweight plastic that feels thin but sturdy. While there’s a slight flex around the sensor when you apply pressure, it shouldn’t cause any issue during regular use. However, you can feel the left and right clicks move slightly to the side when pressing down on them.

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT has a wide CPI range that can be adjusted by increments of 50. It has a fairly consistent sensor whether you move the mouse fast or slow. Also, the minimum lift-off distance is very low, so the sensor shouldn't track your movement when you reposition your mouse. You can choose between four polling rates: 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, and 1000Hz.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech PRO X SUPERLIGHT is available in black and in white. Although we tested the black variant, we expect our results to be valid for the white one as well. You can see our unit's label here.

Compared To Other Mice

The Logitech PRO X SUPERLIGHT is excellent for gaming. Although it doesn't have a honeycomb design, this mouse is still amazingly light, and it's among the lightest mice we've ever tested, which is especially impressive considering it's wireless. Its simple design makes it professional enough to be used in an office setting as well, although some people may be disappointed at its lack of RGB lighting. While it has the same ambidextrous shape as the Logitech G Pro Wireless and is significantly lighter, the SUPERLIGHT only has two side buttons on the left side, instead of on both sides. For other options, see our recommendations for the best gaming mice, the best wireless mice, and if you're interested in Logitech products, also check out the best Logitech mice.

Glorious Model O Wireless

The Logitech G Pro X SUPERLIGHT and the Glorious Model O Wireless are both excellent wireless gaming mice. While the Glorious is a very lightweight mouse, the Logitech is even lighter. The Logitech also has a wider CPI range and is fully compatible with both Windows and macOS. On the other hand, the Glorious has RGB lighting and charges via USB-C instead of the older Micro-USB standard, like the Logitech does. Overall, they're both excellent mice, though if you prioritize a lightweight design over anything else, the Logitech may be the better choice.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and the Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro are both excellent gaming mice. If you're a fan of ultra-light mice, the Logitech is the best option because it's one of the lightest wireless mice we've ever tested. It also has a lower lift-off distance and is fully compatible with Mac, which the Razer isn't. However, the Razer has RGB lighting, Bluetooth support, and more programmable buttons.

Glorious Model O

The Glorious Model O and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are both amazing ultra-light gaming mice. The Logitech has a simple design, and it’s slightly smaller and lighter, making it a great fit for almost all hand sizes using any grip type. It’s also more versatile as it can be used wired or wirelessly. On the other hand, the Glorious features a honeycomb pattern and RGB lighting, giving it a more gamer-centric look.

Logitech G Pro Wireless

The Logitech G Pro Wireless and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are very similarly designed wireless gaming mice that share the same shape and design. While the Wireless has removable side buttons on both sides of the mouse, the SUPERLIGHT only has two side buttons on the left side. That being said, the SUPERLIGHT is much lighter, which some people may prefer. Other than that, both mice have the same sensor and perform almost identically.

Razer Viper Ultimate

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and the Razer Viper Ultimate are both amazing wireless gaming mice. If you're a fan of ultra-light mice, the Logitech is worth considering as it's among the lightest wireless mice we've ever tested. It also has a wider CPI range and is fully compatible with Mac, which the Razer isn't. However, the Razer is still very lightweight, has two programmable buttons on each side, and feels more comfortable to use than the Logitech.

Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and the Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse with HERO Sensor are both excellent wireless gaming mice. If you prefer having a very light mouse and smoother-gliding feet, go with the SUPERLIGHT, but if you like having a bit more weight and RGB lighting, you may prefer the LIGHTSPEED.

Razer Viper Mini

The Razer Viper Mini and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are both excellent FPS and ultra-light gaming mice. The Logitech is a bit more versatile, as you can use it wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver. It’s slightly bigger than the Razer, making it well-suited for almost all hand sizes using any grip type. It also has a wider CPI range, almost no CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. That said, the Razer has a better cable and more programmable input, and it’s well-suited for any hand size using a fingertip grip.

Razer Viper 8KHz

The Razer Viper 8KHz and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are both excellent FPS gaming mice. If you're a fan of ultra-light mice, the Logitech is worth considering because it's one of the lightest wireless mice we've ever tested. Also, it can be used both wired and wireless, and it's fully compatible with macOS. On the other hand, the Razer has RGB lighting, two programmable side buttons on each side, and a lower click latency. Also, it has an 8000Hz polling rate, which should provide more fluid cursor movements, though we don't currently test this.

Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT perform similarly as they use the same sensor, but they are designed completely differently. The G502 has more of an ergonomic shape with a thumb rest on the left side. It’s slightly bigger and wider, and not well-suited for smaller hands using any grip type. Overall, its design is more aggressive and gamer-centric, with RGB lighting and a lot more programmable buttons. The SUPERLIGHT has a rather sleek and simple look, with only five buttons and no RGB lighting. It’s designed for ultra-light gaming, so it’s significantly lighter and a bit smaller than the G502.

Glorious Model D

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT performs slightly better overall, but the Glorious Model D is still amazing for ultra-light gaming. The Logitech is smaller and lighter, and its ambidextrous design should fit most hand sizes and grip types. It has a wider CPI range, less CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. It’s possible to use it wired or wirelessly. That said, the Glorious has a more unique look, with a honeycomb pattern and multiple RGB strips. It also has better feet and a more flexible cable. However, it may not be comfortable for smaller hands using a claw or a fingertip grip.

Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT performs better overall than the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. Even though the G PRO is slightly bigger, it’s significantly lighter, making it an excellent choice for fans of ultra-light gaming. It also feels more comfortable overall and it’s a great fit for most hand sizes and grip types. As for the performance, it has better feet, a wider CPI range, and a lower click latency. That said, the G305 is still a very good option for FPS gaming. It has a great shape for fingertip grip and offers a few more programmable inputs. However, you can only use it wirelessly.

Razer DeathAdder V2

The Razer DeathAdder V2 and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are both excellent gaming mice, but the Razer is wired-only while the Logitech can be used wirelessly. The Razer is slightly wider and has a right-handed design that feels more comfortable overall. It also has more buttons and programmable inputs. On the other hand, the Logitech is great for most hand sizes and grip types, and it's very lightweight so it should please fans of ultra-light gaming as well. It also has a wider CPI range and less CPI variation.

Logitech G502 HERO

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and the Logitech G502 HERO have very different designs, but both mice use the same sensor. The G PRO can be used wired or wirelessly. It has a smaller body than the G502 and it's one of the lightest mice we've tested, making it an excellent choice for fans of ultra-light gaming. Its shape is almost universal and fits most hand sizes using any grip type. On the other hand, the G502 is a wired-only mouse with a right-handed shape and a thumb rest. Because of its larger size, people with smaller hands may have a hard time using it. Its design is also a lot more aggressive and gamer-centric, and it has more buttons and programmable inputs than the G PRO.

Logitech G PRO HERO

The Logitech G PRO HERO and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are two great gaming mice that share the same sensor, though they are somewhat different otherwise. The G PRO HERO is a wired-only mouse. It has a bit more buttons and programmable inputs, including a CPI switching button. That said, the G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is more versatile as you can use it wired or wirelessly. It's also significantly lighter, feels a bit more comfortable, and has a more universal fit overall.
