[Sponsored] Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse Review - by Ino - Page 207

post #2061 of 3554
Here are my thoughts after extensively using it for 4 days:
I used it in csgo: aim map, dm, retake, aim botz, casual, and competitive (supreme ranks)

The good:

- Sensor is super good of course, didn't malfunction once in 3 days of csgo, btw I use 0.7 800 dpi (75 cm/360).

- Sides are not that rounded, which I like, my favorite sides are probably kana v1/v2 because they're fully and sturdy, but these one's are good too.

- Stable on the mouse pad, doesn't wobble at all.

- The clicks are very responsive (they're really light and tactile), holding an angle with an awp is really good with this mouse.

- Build quality is really good, feels like a quality product.

- Side buttons are prefect.

- Scroll wheel is perfect, clicking the scroll is a bit hard but still better than my fk2's middle click.

The not so good:

Cable:

omg this cable is so bad it's unreal. Thick, non flexible, and incredibly heavy, I swear whoever picked it is a retard.
There are other mice with braided cables that are actually great (light and don't affect the feeling of the mouse),
see the DA 2013's cable or the kana v2's cable, both of these are braided but they're super light and you don't feel them when using the mouse.
swapped the g pro's cable to a DA 13's after 30 minutes of playing.

Weight: (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)

It's a bit too high for me at 85 grams, can't flick it around to dodge flashes like I do with my sidebutton-less fk2 (72g)
tried using it with the top cover removed and it's way more useable (weight becomes 74g) but the problem is the mouse doesn't feel right when I do that (no where to put the top of my palm)

Shape: (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)

Shape is great, only thing I don't like is how high the hump is, if you don't like the za's shape then don't get the g pro.

Clicks: (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)

They are a tad too sensitive (when putting the mouse down while you have your finger on the right mouse button, you'll always click it)
so what I did was keep unscrewing the top 2 screws under the front feet until I felt like I didn't misclick anymore.

Lift off distance: (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)

Wish they'd include a slider in the surface tuning area, it'd put that to the lowest setting 100%.. anyways used the tape trick to make the LOD ultra low.

Feet: (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)

I don't think these are pure teflon, they feel faster to me that all my other mice.
They're still good but I would swap them if I was going to use the mouse.

Coating: (PERSONAL PREFERENCE)

The side coating is a bit slippery, not a big deal.
I put some tape over it and that made it more sticky and worked nicely.

Conclusion:

Good mouse all in all, but it's not for me, the 2 main things that I didn't like were the high hump and the weight.
I'm probably getting a revel or a dm1 pro S next, since the kinzu/kana have my favorite shape of all time.

I recommend it for anyone that doesn't mind my 2 main grips.

I'll do CPI comparisons when mine come. Not sure how fast post is from Hyperglide (Canada?).

Edit: Bah, ships from Singapore. Should have just payed the extra $3 to get Amazon Prime.

Just measured, it's down to 391 from 420, so fine by me. Also shipping from Singapore to Germany took like 3 days.

I replaced the scroll encoder for an alps.
I used an alps ec10e (http://www.alps.com/prod/info/E/HTML/Encoder/Incremental/EC10E/EC10E_list.html)
Among other sizes, they come in 9mm and in 11mm (I ordered both) but the stock one (kailh) seems to be mounted at 10mm.
I ended up using the 9mm one (EC10E1220501) which I padded by 1mm.
It feels nice, more defined notches, the scroll direction is fine too, not reversed as I feared.

Update; My scroll wheel clicks are getting better and better for everyday i use the mouse. now i can even spam it! so have patience and use it everyday.
even the braided cable is also getting better and better for everyday.. now i dont even feel it smile.gif so if you dont like it. USE it tongue.gif and you will LOVE it!

Shape is also something you will get used too after some weeks of usage.

I can second that not sure if it is a placebo effect. But atleast the mousewheel click feels definitely much easier to press compared to day 1

Got mine despite logitech's best effort in stopping that from happening.


I was actually expecting this mouse to be garbage after all the stuff I've read about regarding the sides of the mouse not being flat, or the buttons being too sensitive.... but wow, either I won the mouse lottery or you are all insane. the buttons are identical, there's 0 rattling, the sides feel perfect and it's super lightweight. middle mouse button isn't the greatest for using as a in-game bind, but then again I have never done that before anyway. the actual scroll is great and I have no complaints about the mouse feet.

With that said, how is it that logitech can make perfect wireless mice but can't put in a decent cable in their wired mice? How can they keep messing up the most simple things? Thankfully we have CeeSA's cables available to buy to fix this issue, but goddamn this is getting silly.

so ye, perfect mouse. you all need therapy.

I use the mx300's, the circular ones, they fit within the grooves

I used the mx3 ones now (small elliptical ones) and they work great, CPI stayed the same so height should fit too. Can recommend.
