Design & Comfort
The G Pro is a very simply designed mouse. This is not to its determent, however, as its strengths lie in how intuitively it's designed. The shape is that of a traditional mouse, albeit with a few more ergonomically designed curves.
These curves make handling the mouse and reaching any of the programmable buttons a breeze. This is a running trend with most Logitech mouses, but the streamlined design makes everything feel a little easier to use.
The mouse is also extremely lightweight, which in my opinion, offers strengths and one glaring weakness. The mouse is easy to move around, add its traditional design and you have what feels like an ordinary mouse, perfected for gaming.
The light weight does, however, leave the mouse prone to being nudged. This is a problem when games or tasks require precision, as a little jolt or slight movement does translate into gameplay.
In terms of comfort, the G Pro is at least on-par with other gaming mouses, with its edges making it easy on your hands. Being lightweight also makes the mouse easier to use over long periods of time, however, my issues lies in the angle ones hand rests at while playing.
My wrist did begin to cramp up after extended periods, which is a universal problem across gaming mouses; however, I'd have liked to see a thumb rest or similar measure included to avoid having my wrist at an uncomfortable angle.
The simple design of the G Pro is misleading, as the mouse offers some of the most fluid and responsive performance I've ever experienced from a mouse.
The PMW3366 sensor is the most precise sensor I've had the pleasure of using. This was helped by the fact that the mouse is wired, so input delay is non-existent. Motion is tracked perfectly across mouse pads and, to a lesser extent, directly on desks. The sensor works also works across the entire DPI range.
The programmable buttons make a return here, giving the mouse the ability to access features instantly. Functions can be assigned to these keys by the user, so players can customize the mouse according to whatever needs they have.
The tension of the mouse buttons can be changed as well, altering the amount of pressure needed to click them. Again, these can be altered on the fly depending what the player needs at any given point.
The lighting of the mouse can be altered as well. Players can choose from a selection of 16.8 million colours for the LEDs found on the mouse. While not game-changing, this addition does add to the appeal of the mouse by given players room for some visual expression.
The beauty of the G Pro is in its simplicity. Its simple design, low price, and small list of features could deceive you into thinking it's a run-of-the-mill gaming mouse; however, the quality of these features are truly something to behold.
The simple design makes it accessible, while minor tweaks to the form make it more suited to gaming. Nothing feels unnecessary, and the streamlined approach to design is part of why this mouse is suited for both personal and professional use.
Despite being a little light and easy to nudge, the mouse offers deadly precision, a surprising amount of customization, and onboard memory that make it an a flexible, all-purpose mouse that any one will get a fantastic experience out of.
