Accessories for aspiring PC gamers are now the hottest product range from the Swiss PC peripherals manufacturer Logitechs. It generates nearly a third of total sales with its highly specialized controllers for gamers.
Anyone who spends a lot of time playing computer games like “Overwatch”, “Counterstrike” or “League of Legends” and ever wondered whether a special gaming mouse for precise game control is worth the extra cost – the answer is with looking at the latest mouse from Logitech: Rather yes.
The Pro X Superlight 2 is a mouse designed by and for PC gamers. The difference from mid-range mice is striking.
Very fast, very light
Developed in collaboration with e-athletes, the Mouse Companion not only feels more precise, but also slides across a tabletop or mouse pad with almost no resistance.
One reason for this is its light weight: at 60 grams, the Superlight 2 weighs about half the weight of a regular mouse. It’s difficult to judge at what point in the player rankings a gaming mouse makes the decisive difference. But every hand movement feels lighter and more flexible.
Gaming mice compete with each other to have the sensor with the highest sensitivity. This is measured in dots per inch (dpi).
The Superlight 2’s sensitivity can be set to up to 32,000 dpi via software, but in practice this is not necessary.
Minimalism for gamers
You can feel the higher resolution and better mechanics under the mouse buttons even at low dpi numbers, and it even makes opening a popup in Excel much clearer. If there’s one thing to complain about the Superlight 2 for non-gamers, it might be the somewhat clumsy mouse wheel.
Anyone who wants to use the Superlight 2 in the office or on the go will remain incognito and won’t immediately identify themselves as an esports enthusiast. The relatively simple mouse doesn’t have RGB lighting or additional buttons common on gaming devices — there are just two inconspicuous extra buttons on the side.
The mouse comes with Logitech’s usual USB adapter for wireless connectivity and is available in pink, white and black. It costs 189 francs.
