The Logitech G Pro Ghost Design
Now let’s come to the design of the mouse. The design of the device is nearly simple and clean. On top of the mouse, you will get large main buttons, and those provide a satisfactory result when clicked. However, unlike the mouse G903, it does not have any button which will allow you to use free-spinning mode with the scroll wheel. Though it is not a big factor but, if you are one of those people who like free-spinning wheels feature, then you may not like this.
The G Pro GHOST has two buttons on each side which makes it an ambidextrous mouse. These buttons are magnetically attached with the device and if you wish to remove them from one side, you can easily do it. So, if you are trying to make it a right-handed or left-handed mouse, you are open for the possibility, or you can leave all four of them in its place and increase your option at the times of key binding.
Scroll Wheel and Buttons
Logitech’s gaming mouse is renowned for using their light buttons. However, it gets too light sometimes. But it is not the case with G Pro GHOST. The buttons do not need much of force to press. So, anyone who has fingers with heavy trigger may need some time to get accustomed to it. However, to most people, it is entirely responsive, and you would not be having accidental clicks in your gaming.
The scroll wheel comes with rubbered textures and feels okay with fingers. But it has some drawbacks as the steps are not adequately defined, there is a lot of tension between them. So, if you are one of them who use the scroll wheel for changing weapons or some action, then you must be aware of it. But it is not all bad; the scroll wheel is very easy to click and smooth enough for primary gaming purpose.
Logitech G Pro Build Quality
When it comes to using a mouse for gaming, the most crucial factor is its weight. Nobody wants to use a bulky mouse when doing some action punch. So here comes Logitech’s G Pro GHOST to gamers help. The mouse feels very light and also easy to hold thanks to its perfect shape. It also feels sturdy when using it. Also, this mouse runs on Logitech’s own lightspeed technology. Allegedly it can transmit signals without any delaying.
For recharging your mouse, you will get a cable which will connect the device with a Micro-USB port and the best part is you can still use the mouse while its charging and connected with the wire. If you are speaking about the battery life of this mouse, it can handle 60 hours of usage with a single charge without light and with the LEDs turned on you can get around 48 hours of juice. So, for instance, you use your mouse 8 hours a day then a single charge will last about a week.
While using a mouse grip is undoubtedly an essential factor. The G Pro GHOST has a proper shape which makes it easy to hold. The size is neither large nor small, so anyone can easily hold it. For this safe shape, it is suitable for a verity of people with different palm and finger size. As it is a gaming mouse, it is specially designed in a way so that your hands do not feel fatigued even you use it for a long period of time. In one-word, Logitech has done a fantastic job, and the mouse feels impressive when you are using it.
The Logitech G Pro Sensor
Logitech G Pro GHOST is packed with the HERO sensor, and it also has the support of PowerPlay and Lightspeed. The HERO sensor in this model is pretty much improved. The first generation was great itself, and this successor, the HERO 16K, is fabulous. The DPI range goes from 100 to 16000. With tracking it can go to 400 IPS. With the help of this fast sensor, you can play your game flawlessly without missing a frame.
Logitech’s gaming software was already one of the most advanced gaming software, but with the new G Hub suite, the company has set a new benchmark. The software is easy to use, and it has an organized look so that you can control it with ease. In this software, you will be able to do all the necessary stuff such as changing the LED lights and DPI settings, recording macros and many more.
