Logitech G Wireless Pro Gaming Mouse Review

It is a long held maxim that the amount of "stuff" on a product's packaging can be a perfect indicator of its place in the market, and this usually is a bell curve where the end loops back to the front. Let us explain. At the value end the item has so few features that the packaging is free from shouty text and tech logos. In the mid-priced models the density of logos and "wow" text increases so as to hopefully grab the attention of the buying public amongst the masses of items available from which to choose. Whilst as you move towards premium models the 'all the bells and whistles' nature is so obvious that the packaging returns to the minimalist design you find at the low end, but for totally opposite reasons.
Within the high quality box we have the G Wireless Pro mouse itself, charging cable, wireless receiver, adaptor to allow you to plug the receiver into the charging cable if you so wish, and some alternative designs for the side buttons.
On the underside there are large Teflon feet, the centrally mounted sensor eye, power button and, at the top, the hole for the charging cable. At the back there is a magnetic cover which hides a hole within which you can place the receiver, should you wish to slip the Logitech into a pocket without worrying that you'll lose the receiver.
You can see the Logitech G Wireless Pro looks like it's been hewn from a single piece, such are the smooth lines and crease free design. There are no rubberised side pads either, although the matte texture and light weight of the mouse means it isn't hard to keep hold of.
It is also possible to get a glimpse of the efforts to which Logitech's R&D team have gone to keep the weight as low as possible. Look at that scroll wheel. It's more akin to a bicycle wheel with three spokes and the thinnest "tyre", instead of some of the solid weighty offerings we've seen pass through out offices.
Blending extremely light weight with a solid, rounded, design leaves the G Wireless Pro as one of the smoothest mice in your hand we've experienced. Eschewing the angular and creased design school that is currently king of the market it also looks like few others of recent times. How does it perform though?
