The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 is a wireless gaming mouse and a continuation of Logitech's G PRO X SUPERLIGHT lineup. It looks nearly identical to its predecessor, the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT, and it weighs virtually the same. The major changes are all internal: an updated HERO 2 sensor, a new maximum wireless polling rate of 2000Hz, and the introduction of USB-C charging. This mouse also replaces the conventional mechanical switches of the previous generation model with optical switches.

Our Verdict

Compared To Other Mice

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 doesn't make radical changes over its extremely successful predecessor, the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. It has exactly the same accommodating shape, and it weighs virtually the same. The major changes are on the inside. Logitech has replaced the mechanical switches on the original with its new LIGHTFORCE optical switches. Generally speaking, optical switches are typically more durable and aren't prone to developing double-clicking issues. However, they also feel stiffer initially but can get mushy as they age. Other noteworthy changes with this update include Logitech's updated HERO 2 sensor, a higher maximum wireless polling rate of 2000hz, and the introduction of more convenient USB-C charging.

Ultimately, this mouse is a high-end option geared toward high-level competitive play. It competes closely against other current flagship wireless models, including the Razer Viper V2 Pro and Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro, as well as more exotic, premium models, like the Pwnage StormBreaker and the upcoming Finalmouse UltralightX.

Build Quality

This mouse has impressive build quality. The matte plastic body has a premium look and feel. There aren't any creaking sounds when you apply pressure to the mouse, and no loose or wobbling parts.

The scroll wheel has a bit of side play towards the left, just like on the original G PRO X SUPERLIGHT, and The left- and right-click buttons have minimal side-to-side play, but in neither case are these issues noticeable during regular use.

There's slightly more flexibility in some places on the body compared to the previous generation SUPERLIGHT, notably on the left side panel. You can actuate the side buttons if you squeeze forcefully into the left side panel. This doesn't create any issues when using the mouse normally.

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 has excellent feet that glide smoothly on mousepads and directly on desks, but they produce slightly more drag than many competing gaming mice, and they're slightly thinner.

You can replace the stock plastic puck that covers the storage compartment for the wireless receiver with the alternate PTFE foot puck included in the box. You can see the alternate PTFE puck installed in the photo for this test section above. You can see the stock plastic puck installed in this photo. Installing the PTFE puck can help reduce drag, particularly if you tend to apply considerable pressure when using your mouse or have a softer cloth mousepad.

Note the design of these feet is slightly different from those on the original Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT, which means sets of replacement feet for the original will not fit with this mouse.

You can reprogram all of the buttons on this mouse, including the left- and right-click buttons. You can also assign what Logitech calls a 'G-Shift' button that allows you to toggle to a secondary layer of programmable controls.

The left- and right-click buttons use LIGHTFORCE hybrid optical switches, unlike the previous generation G PRO X SUPERLIGHT, which uses conventional mechanical switches.

Optical switches are typically more durable and aren't prone to developing double-clicking issues over time. That said, the LIGHTFORCE switches used on this mouse are noticeably louder and significantly stiffer feeling than the mechanical switches of the previous generation G PRO X SUPERLIGHT. However, much like other optical switches, we expect the LIGHTFORCE switches will soften and not feel quite as stiff after short-term usage but will likely develop a mushy feeling over long-term use.

The configuration software includes an option to toggle the left- and right-click buttons between the default 'optical only' mode intended for gaming to a battery-saving 'hybrid mode.'

We've prepared a set of graphs showing the actuation data for both modes below.

The switches perform nearly identically in both modes. Changing this setting does not affect the sound or feel of the switches but likely lowers power consumption at the cost of latency performance. The tiny variations between graphs are likely the result of setting up and replacing the mouse in our test rig.

Overall, the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 provides remarkable CPI performance. When you move this mouse at a consistent speed, the sensor accurately tracks the physical movements you make with your mouse and translates them extremely close to those you see on screen.

That said, this mouse's SRAV (speed-related accuracy variation) results are slightly elevated. This means that when you move your mouse the same distance, your cursor will travel marginally further at faster speeds than it does when moved at slower speeds, and this behavior is fairly consistent at 400, 800, and 1600 CPI settings. Also, because these SRAV results are positive, you're more prone to slightly overshoot when you flick faster, forcing you to reverse your movement acceleration.

Again, it's worth reinforcing that these SRAV results are still good but are simply slightly worse than other similar mice, including the previous generation G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and more recent Logitech releases, like the Logitech G502 X PLUS.

Logitech may be able to improve SRAV performance via future firmware updates, and we'll be retesting this mouse in the future to check. If you have this mouse and want to share your experience, we encourage you to leave a comment in the forums.

This mouse uses Logitech's G Hub configuration software, which is well laid out and intuitive. This software allows you to customize various expected options, including CPI, polling rate, sensor calibration, button assignments, and custom macros.

Additionally, the software allows you to change how the left- and right-click switches operate. You can toggle the switches between the default 'optical only' setting intended for gaming and a power-saving 'hybrid' setting.

Like similar software options from other major manufacturers, Logitech's G HUB software is a source of frequent criticism from the broader community. While we didn't experience any issues during the testing of this mouse, many users online identify this software as requiring frequent updates and taking up disproportionate system resources, among other complaints. This software may be frustrating if you prefer more lightweight software options or no software at all. If you'd prefer a high-performance gaming mouse that doesn't use software but instead allows you to configure settings using buttons directly on the mouse, check out the Vaxee XE Wireless.
