Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 and Pro X TKL Lightspeed Review

Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 et Pro X TKL Lightspeed Review

I've been a fan of the Logitech line of peripherals for over a decade. Over the years, I've swapped one device for another in the lineup, except for a few review periods in between. The Logitech G series has always been my go-to. As an avid gamer, I've had a lot of good experiences, and I've often followed up on an item by purchasing it after it left a favorable impression on me. The brand continues to push the boundaries of technology and design, creating a wide range of peripherals for gamers. The new Logitech G Pro X line goes back to basics and delivers what you want most from your gaming peripherals: performance.

The brand has released two peripherals related to the latest range – a mouse and a keyboard. These are the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse and the Logitech G Pro X TKL Lightspeed Gaming Keyboard. Although the names are a bit high-sounding, they take a simplistic approach to gaming peripherals, stripping away most of the extraneous elements to create two products that are reliable and deliver instant results.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse

The introduction states that the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse is a back-to-basics gaming mouse. It looks more like a classic mouse than a mouse with typical gaming aesthetics.

For starters, there's no RGB lighting to speak of. And it's incredibly light, with a total weight of just 60g. It is between 10 and 20 grams lighter than other mice. It is between 10 and 20 grams lighter than other gaming mice, so it is very agile when gliding across your mouse pad. It is therefore more precise and easier to maneuver. To do this, it is not necessary to cut out the different parts of the mouse to save weight.

As part of its minimalism efforts, the mouse also doesn't feature the usual 20 buttons. Instead, there are only five usable buttons left – six if you include the power button. Those looking for multiple shortcuts to their MMORPG won't find them here.

Flipping the mouse over to reveal the underside reveals a traction zone. This allows for a greater gliding effect because more surface area is in contact with the mouse pad to make it easier to approach gliding.

The underside also reveals the sensor, one of the mouse's most notable features. Logitech uses its Hero 2 sensor, which ranges from 100 to 32,000 DPI. Unfortunately, due to the limited button approach, you have to use the Logitech G Hub software to configure the DPI settings. It's not the most convenient app, but it allows you to add more than one device at a time, which is useful for pairing with the Logitech G Pro X TKL Lightspeed Gaming Keyboard.

Two other Logitech technologies used on the Pro X Superlight 2 are Lightspeed wireless technology and Lightforce hybrid switches. Lightspeed connectivity works via the 2.4GHz USB adapter. It works well with low latency. However, if you need even lower response time, there is a wired option using the USB Type-A to Type-C cable.

Lightforce hybrid switches deliver precise mouse clicks. Each click is crisp, firm and solid. This comes in handy when you need quick, precise clicks during gameplay to ensure you hit the target at the exact moment you click. Not only is the mouse precise, but it is also very pleasant to use, offering the best of both worlds. The game is even more fun. However, one downside to its speed is that it can be noisy. Compared to the Logitech M240 Silent, which offers near-silent clicks, when gaming late at night with the Pro playing with headphones) – a small price to pay in the end.

Finally, there is the built-in battery. Logitech advertises a battery life of around 95 hours of continuous use, which is inaccurate. On the contrary, I was able to easily exceed 100 hours during the tests I carried out, with an average of around 110 hours. A red light indicates low battery when turned on. It disappears after a few seconds if you continue to use it. However, the light flashes when the battery reaches a critical level and continues to flash until it is recharged. The mouse also charges using the same USB cable used for wired mode.

Logitech G Pro X TKL Lightspeed Gaming Gaming Keyboard

Unlike the Pro X Superlight 2 gaming mouse, the Logitech Pro The keyboard is also available in three colors: conventional black, white and pink.

Despite its reduced size as a TKL keyboard, it is still a bit heavier at just under 1kg – 900g to be more precise. However, some valuable shortcuts have been added to the keyboard, despite its limited size. It has a navigation key group at the top and a full F row. Additional hotkeys allow users to switch between connectivity, activate game lock and various media keys. Finally, a volume wheel is located at the top right. It makes it much easier to control the volume while gaming.

Interestingly, the keyboard features Logitech's GX Brown switches. However, they can be replaced with red or blue switches. The GX Brown switches are something of a middle ground between the Red and Blue switches, where Blue offers more precise mechanical switches, and Red offers a softer, smoother approach for repetitive clicking in MMORPG-style games. This customizable approach makes many Logitech products easy to use and adapt to your needs.

Another great aspect of the Pro X TKL Lightspeed Keyboard is its wireless connectivity. Gaming keyboards don't often have a wireless option, unless you're using a smartphone or tablet with Bluetooth keyboards. The Pro X TKL Lightspeed Keyboard offers Lightspeed and Bluetooth connectivity options, with the Lightspeed option being preferred for gaming. It also offers around 50 hours of battery life, which is plenty considering everything that needs to be powered and its usefulness as a gaming peripheral.
