The Glorious Series One Pro is currently available as a group buy from Glorious Forge, and it looks like Glorious is targeting the Logitech G Pro X Superlight squarely. Both mice have similar specs and are almost identically shaped, so we thought we’d pit them against each other to see which one is worth buying. At the time of writing, there are only 16 days left to buy the Glorious Series One Pro, so make up your mind quickly, let’s see if we can help you compete in our Glorious Series One Pro vs Logitech G Pro X Superlight Battle. Let’s take a closer look at the competitors.
Logitech G PRO X super light
By looking at the base stats, you can see how similar these two mice are, at least superficially. However, gaming mice are very specialized things, which means there are more things to consider besides the stats. Let’s go into detail and see where these mice are similar and where they differ.
First, let’s look at the most personal and subjective aspect of mouse design, the shape. It’s no secret that Logitech created a popular and performance-oriented shape back in 2016 with the original G Pro. With a higher arc and shorter overall length, this shape was perfect for claw or fingertip grips, and these grip styles happen to be the most common for esports professionals. This made it unsurprising as it was quickly adopted by pro players like s1mple.
Logitech chose not to change the shape of the G Pro X Superlight too much, although numerous competitors mimic the shape. This was a smart move to avoid alienating esports pros who were fans of the G Pro’s form.
This brings us to the shape of the Glorious Series One Pro. It doesn’t surprise anyone at all, it’s almost entirely identical to the G Pro. This makes sense as the shape of the G Pro is seen as the pinnacle of mouse design by many people, even some here in the WePC offices. It’s similar enough in that we’ll call this round a tie, since the minute differences in form don’t matter much when the internals of one are preferable to the other. Speaking of which, let’s get to the sensor.
Winner: to draw
The sensor is at the heart of a mouse’s capabilities. It determines DPI, CPI, IPS, maximum acceleration and polling rate. Along with many other idiotic acronyms and initialisms. Despite the nerdy nature of mouse sensors, they have a huge impact on the mouse’s overall characteristics, so it needs to be covered.
Glorious has equipped the Series One Pro with their Glorious BAMF sensor. This is the same 19,000 DPI sensor that we first saw when the Glorious Model I was released, and it works very well, with a tracking speed of 400 IPS and a Pixart-influenced design. This sensor, which is widely considered to be based almost entirely on the Pixart PAW3370, has strong specifications and has been recognized as accurate, reliable and powerful enough for most applications.
In comparison, the G Pro X Superlight has the venerable HERO 25K. This is rightfully considered the best-in-class sensor. This is unsurprising given the sensor’s incredible specs, a whopping 25,600 DPI tracking speed, 400+ IPD, and efficiency levels that far exceed the Glorious BAMF, despite both sensors coming from the same parent company, Pixart. Due to the sheer difference in numbers, the result of this round will not surprise you,
Winner: Logitech G PRO X super light
The main advantage of wireless gaming mice is the absence of cables. This eliminates the cable pull and thus the need to use a bungee. Additionally, the lack of cables results in a tab, a more minimalistic desktop, which can be a big deal for people.
Of course, we have to address the elephant in the room, which is the unreleased status of the Glorious Series One Pro. This means we are not yet able to use qualitative data to assess the validity of Glorious’ 84-hour claim. By the looks of it, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless has a battery life of 70 hours with constant movement. That’s less than Glorious’ alleged 84 hours. However, Glorious is known to be reliable when it comes to battery life claims, so we’ll give Glorious that for now, but we’ll test it when we get our hands on the Series One Pro and update this page accordingly.
Winner: Glorious Series One Pro
Unfortunately, this round is a landslide victory. This will be clear to any of you who have used G Hub or Glorious Core before, as one is far more user-friendly than the other. While Glorious Core is functional, Glorious just hasn’t had as much time to improve it enough to compete with G-Hub’s fluidity and clarity. Yes, it gets the job done, but not nearly as well.
Winner: Logitech G hub
Oh yes, the most subjective and therefore most divisive round, the design. Thankfully, this round isn’t as one-sided a win as it would normally be, given that the G Pro X and Series One Pro aren’t just black. We’ve grown tired of all-black color schemes here at WePC for the past few years and thankfully these mice are available in a few different colors at no extra cost.
The G Pro X Superlight is available in pink, black or white. These options are clever, as they cover the range of the most popular gaming peripheral options, so the G Pro X can always fit into an existing setup. The mouse itself is almost underdesigned, with minimal logos and a simple line of text on the side that reads “SUPER LIGHT“. These aspects remain the same regardless of the color chosen.
The Glorious Series One Pro is a bit more interesting when it comes to coloring in comparison. They even came up with slightly strange names for each variant, Genos (Yellow), Centauri (Red), and Vidar (Blue). These are differentiated by the scroll wheel, the DPI cycle button and the gray and white tone of the main body. They look great, with subtle cases and pops of color, which is why we’re giving Glorious this round as they were more creative here.
Winner: Glorious Series One Pro
While the roughly $150 price tag for the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is widely considered worthwhile given the mouse’s industry-leading performance, it’s still way out of budget for most people. This contrasts with the far cheaper cost of the Glorious Series One Pro, as it’s currently available for group purchase for $99 with free shipping to the US. Due to the sheer price differences, the winner here is obvious.
Winner: Glorious Series One Pro
Glorious Series One Pro vs. Logitech G Pro X Superlight: The results
Glorious just managed to win over Logitech here. However, we won’t be sure until the Series One group purchase is complete and the products have shipped. If you’re still not sure, we also compared the G Pro X to the Razer Viper V2 Pro. That could add a third competitor vying for your next gaming mouse purchase.
