Logitech G Pro gaming mouse announced for the eSport fan

Logitech announced the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse this week, a perfect addition for fans of eSports. The new gaming mouse features Logitech’s most accurate optical gaming sensor, a metal spring button tensioning system, onboard memory for driver-free operation on tournament systems, and a comfortable, durable yet lightweight design. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse borrows heavily from the Logitech G100, which has been a go-to favorite for eSports professionals. The new device also features speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303, all for a reasonable price of $70 smackers.

“The benefit of working with eSports players is that they tell us what they like, and more importantly, what they don’t like,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. “Our new Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse takes what eSports pros loved about the G100s and G303 and combines it into a mouse that we’re confident will meet their standards.”

“Competing at the top level requires a well-built mouse,” said Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud 9 CS:GO. “After working closely with Logitech and extensive testing, the new Pro Gaming Mouse is my preferred mouse. With a comfortable shape and top-of-the-line sensor, I never have problems picking off my enemies.”

The new optical gaming sensor, the PMW3366, offers the same precision that you’ve come to expect with these devices. It also offers zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The metal spring button tensioning system in the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is facilitated in both the left and right mouse buttons, the system reduces the force required to click.

According to the company, the mouse is optimized to reduce weight to improve comfort, stability and responsiveness. The top surface of the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is treated with a special coating to improve durability and grip, and the left and right buttons are tested to exceed 20 million clicks. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse lets you save your exact DPI settings, button assignments, and lighting configuration to the onboard memory in the mouse, all using the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), so you’ll never have to worry about whether your setup is right, regardless of what system you are playing on.

The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning August 2016 for a suggested retail price of $69.99 and €79.95 respectively. You can checkout the full-line of Logitech gear currently being offered on sites like Amazon.com.
