Logitech G Pro X Superlight vs G Pro Wireless (2021): Choosing Lightweight Gaming Mice

In a way, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight can be considered as a trimmed down variant of the Logitech G Pro Wireless, but it’s not “lite” in the usual sense. In fact, it has a few advantages here and there, including a weight that’s less than 63g as compared to 80g, which is noticeable especially if you play for hours on end.

On that note, we compare these gaming mice on a few but important fronts, from design and features to performance. That way, you can make a more informed buying decision.

Design

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is lighter at 63 grams than the G Pro Wireless, which weighs 80 grams.

While the Logitech G Pro X and G Pro keyboards may look similar, the same can’t be said about the G Pro X Superlight and G Pro Wireless gaming mice. To begin with, both have different form factors. The G Pro X Superlight is for right-handed gamers only, but the G Pro Wireless has an ambidextrous design.

The main selling point of the G Pro X Superlight is it weighs only 63 grams, which even drops all the way down to 60 grams without the aperture door that covers the USB wireless receiver’s storage. That’s a remarkable achievement considering that Logitech didn’t have to resort to punching holes into it to reduce weight unlike other manufacturers. In comparison, the G Pro Wireless is 80 grams.

However, the trade-off is the company had to cut the number of LEDs down to one. That means there are no LEDs to show DPI level, and the G logo doesn’t glow anymore. There’s only one LED that serves as a battery indicator.

The G Pro X Superlight does come in black and white, though. For the record, the G Pro Wireless is available only in black.

Features

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is only for right-handers, while the G Pro Wireless is for both lefties and righties.

Without a doubt, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight sacrifices features for weight, and it really shows. First off, the G Pro X Superlight doesn’t have a DPI switch on its bottom, which the G Pro Wireless has. In other words, you’ll need to turn to the Logitech G HUB to make adjustments because of that.

Expanding more on their hand orientations, the G Pro X Superlight only has thumb buttons on its left side since it’s designed for right-handers, after all. On the other hand (pun intended), the G Pro Wireless has modular buttons on both sides, further cementing itself as a viable wireless gaming mouse for both lefties and righties.

Performance

Thanks to its larger PTFE feet, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight should have a smoother glide across surfaces.

As mentioned earlier, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is lighter, and depending on your preference, that’s either a good thing or a bad thing. In any case, the two have the same HERO 25K sensor and DPI range that goes from 100 to 25,600 and use the same LIGHTSPEED wireless technology. In short, their gaming performance is on the same level.

The G Pro X Superlight‘s feet are larger and made from “zero-additive” PTFE, and according to Logitech, that should result in a smoother glide overall. Additionally, it’s bundled with a POWERPLAY aperture door with a PTFE foot. Just to be clear, this lets you replace the default magnetic aperture door. Last but not least, there’s also an optional grip tape if you want to change the texture of the mouse.

Now the G Pro X Superlight can go up to 70 hours on a single charge. That’s certainly longer than what the G Pro Wireless can do, which is either 48 hours with default lighting or 60 hours with lighting disabled.

Verdict

The Logitech G Pro X Superlight and G Pro Wireless each has its own audience.

To sum it up, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is lighter and has a longer battery life and a smoother glide. In contrast, the Logitech G Pro Wireless has an ambidextrous design, modular buttons, more LEDs and indicators, and a DPI switch.

Put simply, each one has its own unique benefits, so rather than declare a winner, it’d be better to say that choosing depends on what you prefer. The G Pro X Superlight can go a long way if a lightweight gaming mouse is what you’re after, while the G Pro Wireless is your best bet if you’d rather have a feature-packed mouse.
