Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse takes aim at pro players

Onboard memory for driver storage and Logitech's most accurate optical sensor yet are just some of its tourney-grade features.

Logitech has announced the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse, a peripheral aimed a tournament-level play.

"The benefit of working with eSports players is that they tell us what they like, and more importantly, what they don’t like," said Logitech's vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech, Ujesh Desai. "Our new Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse takes what eSports pros loved about the G100s and G303 and combines it into a mouse that we’re confident will meet their standards."

Billed as a successor to the Logitech G100 series, the G Pro Gaming Mouse boasts a feature set that strikes a balance between functionality and comfort. Drivers are stored in onboard memory, so "eSports athletes" (Logitech's term) don't have to worry about playing without drivers on tournament systems. The company's most accurate optical sensor will assist players' honed aiming skills, and the mouse is lightweight yet durable.

For pros who have lost close-fought battles due to not clicking hard enough, Logitech's G Pro Gaming Mouse uses a metal spring button tensioning system in both the left and right mouse buttons. Translation: you won't have to pound the mouse with a hammer to get it to register clicks.

You'll be able to pick up a Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse for $69.95 later this month.

      Our engineers at Logitech worked diligently to ensure that even at the tournament level, your mouse will start double clicking precisely 3 months after purchase. This is a 50% faster click failure rate versus our other gaming mice. We are also proud to announce our teflon pads will fall off within 1000 hours of use providing that uneven, dragging feeling we know our players love. We here at Logitech know what our gamers want and we exclusively use Omron switches which are industry leaders in double clicking and misclicks. We'll see you on the battlefield.

        More complaining about double clicking from you, surprise! Maybe if you didn't make the same post in every thread about mice.

          So if I stop posting about it, it will stop happening?

      Wow, finally a Logitech gaming mouse that doesn't try to look like a fighter jet wrapped in christmas lights. Even better that it doesn't need drivers installed, I always found that ridiculous for something as simple as a mouse (Razer's Synapse software sucks in particular). I'll watch for reviews on this, though I doubt it'll get me to replace my Zoqie (another no-nonsense driverless mouse). :)

        I usually install the driver to disable the dpi switching button (I like having it at 1000dpi and having it stay there...I always accidentally hit the damned button on my G100S if I have it setup for dpi switching).

      Well, that does look like a pretty good mouse as far as shape and buttons / wheel-layout goes.

      Is that a middle mouse button under the scroll wheel?

        If it's typical logitech design, that's a toggle between free-scrolling and detent stops for the mouse-wheel.

          It's the DPI switch, there's no free-scroll on this one.

      Looks like a better design than the G303 which is exactly the same mouse spec wise. Now they just need to make a wireless (hybrid) one.

      Hopefully it will be lighter than most modern gaming mice, which only seem to have gotten heavier over the years. Heavier mouse = worse for accuracy in first person shooters.

        Found the answer to this on their site: http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/pro-gaming-mouse

        Weight: 5.0 oz (129.5 g ) mouse with cable
        Weight: 3.0 oz (84.7 g) mouse only

        The measurement without the cable is more important.

        So it is significantly lighter than my g502 which is supposedly 145 grams without any tuning weights loaded.

        I might be getting one of these.
