Logitech Pro X Superlight 2: The Exceptional Gaming Mouse That Stands Out

Logitech recently unveiled its refreshed Pro series of gaming peripherals, including the Pro X Superlight 2 mouse, the Pro X TKL keyboard, and the Pro X 2 Lightspeed headset. After thoroughly testing all three devices for over a week, I can confidently say that there is only one worth purchasing.

Logitech’s gaming peripherals have a reputation for being expensive, but some products truly live up to the expectations set by their price tag – like the G915 TKL. Unfortunately, the new lineup doesn’t quite reach that level, except for the Pro X Superlight 2 mouse, which has earned a permanent spot on my desk.

An exceptional gaming mouse

The Pro X Superlight 2 mouse may not look like much on the surface. Its design is almost identical to the original Pro X Superlight, and it comes in the same colors. So, why should you choose the Pro X Superlight 2 over its predecessor, especially when the original model is on sale?

Well, all the changes are on the inside. The Pro X Superlight 2 is equipped with the advanced Hero 2 sensor, increasing the Dots Per Inch (DPI) range from 25,000 to an impressive 32,000. This allows for higher maximum speed, achieving over 500 Inches Per Second (IPS), thanks to the new 2,000Hz polling rate and the highly sensitive sensor.

The result of these changes is a mouse that feels incredibly responsive. This responsiveness is crucial for competitive gaming, where quick flicks and precise movements can make all the difference. And with its lightweight design, coming in at only 60 grams, along with the resistance-free PTFE feet, the Pro X Superlight 2 effortlessly glides across your desk, whether you’re exploring the cosmos in Starfield or engaging in intense battles in Rainbow Six Siege.

But it’s not just gaming features that make the Pro X Superlight 2 shine. It’s also what it lacks that sets it apart. Unlike many other gaming devices that are heavily reliant on RGB lighting, the Pro X Superlight 2 takes a different approach. It embraces simplicity with its standard black variant, but for those looking for a bit more flair, the white and magenta color options add a touch of gamer aesthetic without overdoing it.

Another standout feature of the Pro X Superlight 2 is its exceptional battery life. Logitech claims it can last up to 95 hours, but based on my usage of 10 to 12 hours per day, I haven’t needed to charge it since I first received it. According to G Hub, the mouse still retains 88% of its charge. Thanks to its minimalistic lighting design, you can go weeks without needing to recharge, making it a game-changer for wireless mouse users who were accustomed to more frequent charging. Additionally, the Pro X Superlight 2 features USB-C charging, doing away with the outdated micro-USB port found on the original model.

Everything else – The Pro X 2 Lightspeed and Pro X TKL

While the Pro X Superlight 2 stands out as a must-have gaming mouse, the other two devices in Logitech’s new lineup don’t reach the same level of excellence. First, let’s address the Pro X 2 Lightspeed headset. Priced at $250, it falls short of being a premium wireless gaming headset. Though it is comfortable and offers decent sound quality, it lacks the value and features of competitors like the Steelseries Arctis Nova Pro. With its superior audio quality, wireless capabilities, and additional features like the GameDAC and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), the Arctis Nova Pro remains the preferred choice in the market.

Similarly, the Pro X TKL keyboard fails to impress. Priced at $200, it’s a standard mechanical gaming keyboard that faces fierce competition in the market. The Asus Strix Scope II 96, for example, offers a better typing experience, hot-swappable switches, and a $20 lower price tag. Additionally, smaller form factor keyboards, such as the Corsair K70 Pro Mini Wireless with its 60% layout, have gained popularity among highly competitive gamers. Logitech’s Pro X TKL just doesn’t stand out in this highly competitive space.

The gaming keyboard market has recently seen a surge of innovation, with brands like SteelSeries, Asus, and Corsair incorporating ideas from the enthusiast mechanical keyboard community into their offerings. Unfortunately, the Pro X TKL seems to have missed the memo, feeling uninspiring and lacking standout features despite its high price tag. While it does come with a convenient carrying case and some additional touches like dedicated media controls, these features alone aren’t enough to justify its cost when there are already numerous superior options available at lower prices.

The verdict

Out of the three new devices in Logitech’s lineup, only one deserves the spotlight. The Pro X Superlight 2 mouse truly excels in all aspects, offering exceptional responsiveness, impressive battery life, and a sleek design without relying on excessive RGB lighting. It has easily earned its spot on my desk and is a clear choice for any competitive gamer looking for top-notch performance.

As for the Pro X 2 Lightspeed headset and Pro X TKL keyboard, they don’t quite measure up to the standard set by their competitors. While both offer decent performance, their higher price tags and lack of standout features make them difficult to justify when compared to alternatives in the market.

In conclusion, Logitech’s Pro X Superlight 2 mouse is the shining star among their new gaming peripherals, delivering an outstanding gaming experience that’s hard to match.
