The Glorious Series One Pro is currently available as a bundle purchase from Glorious Forge, and it looks like glorious is aiming squarely at the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. Both mice have similar specs and are nearly identical in shape, so we thought we’d put them against each other to see which one is worth buying. As of this writing, there are only 16 days left to buy the Glorious Series One Pro, so you better make up your mind quickly, let’s see if we can help you with that in our Glorious Series One Pro vs Logitech G Pro X Superlight battle. Let’s take a closer look at the contenders.
Super lightweight Logitech G PRO X
From the base stats, you can see how similar these two mice are, at least on the surface. However, gaming mice are very special things, which means there are more things to consider besides stats. Let’s go into more detail and see where these mice are similar and where they diverge from each other.
First, let’s consider the most personal and subjective aspect of mouse design, the shape. It’s no secret that Logitech created a beloved, performance-driven shape with the original G Pro back in 2016. With a higher arch and shorter overall length, this shape was perfect for grips with claw or finger grips and these types of grips happen to be the most common for esports professionals. It was therefore not surprising that it was quickly adopted by professional players like s1mple.
Logitech chose to avoid over-modifying the shape of the G Pro X Superlight, despite dozens of competitors aping the shape. It was a smart move in order to avoid alienating esports pros who were fans of the G Pro’s shape.
This brings us to the shape of the Glorious Series One Pro. Surprising absolutely no one, it is almost completely identical to the G Pro. that makes sense because the shape of the G Pro is considered the zenith of mouse design by many people, even some here at the WePC offices. It’s so similar in that we’ll call this round a draw because the minute differences in form don’t matter much when the internals of one might be preferable to the other. Speaking of which, let’s move on to the sensor.
Winner: to draw
The sensor is the heart of a mouse’s capabilities. It dictates the DPI, CPI, IPS, maximum acceleration and polling rate. Along with many other silly acronyms and acronyms. Despite the corny nature of mouse sensors, they have a huge impact on overall mouse characteristics, so it needs to be covered.
Glorious has equipped the One Pro series with its Glorious BAMF sensor. It’s the same 19,000 DPI sensor we first saw with the release of the Glorious Model I and it performs very well, with a tracking speed of 400 IPS and a Pixart-influenced design. Generally considered to be based almost entirely on the Pixart PAW3370, this sensor has solid specs and has been well received as being accurate, reliable and powerful enough for most applications.
The G Pro X Superlight, by comparison, has the venerable HERO 25K. This is rightly considered an industry leading sensor. That’s no surprise considering the sensor’s incredible specs, a whopping 25,600 DPI tracking speed, over 400 DPI, and a level of efficiency far outclassing the Glorious BAMF, although both sensors come from the same parent company, Pixart. Due to the big difference in the numbers, you will not be surprised with the outcome of this round,
Winner: Super lightweight Logitech G PRO X
The main advantage of wireless gaming mice is the lack of cables. This eliminates cable drag, and therefore the need to use a rubber band. Also, the lack of cable results in a jumper, more minimal 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 that we cannot yet use qualitative data to assess the validity of Glorious’ 84-hour claim. As it stands, the Logitech G Pro X Wireless is capable of 70 hours of battery life in constant motion. That’s less than the so-called 84 Hours of Glorious. However, Glorious is known to be reliable when it comes to battery life, so we’ll give this one to Glorious, but we’ll test it when we get our hands on the Series One Pro and update this page. Consequently.
Winner: Glorious Series One Pro
This round is unfortunately a landslide victory. This will be obvious to any of you who have ever used G Hub or Glorious Core, as one is much more user-friendly than the other. While Glorious Core is functional, Glorious just hasn’t had as much time to improve it to the state where it can rival the smoothness and clarity of G-Hub. Yes, it does the job, but not as well.
Winner: Logitech G Hub
Ah yes, the most subjective and therefore the most divisive trick, the design. Luckily, this round isn’t as much of a one-sided victory as it normally would be, as the G Pro X and One Pro series don’t just come in black. We’ve had enough of pure black color combinations over the past few years here at WePC and luckily 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 smart because they run the gamut of the most popular choices in gaming peripherals, so the G Pro X can still fit into a pre-existing setup. The mouse itself is almost under-engineered, 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 you choose.
The Glorious Series One Pro, by comparison, is slightly more interesting when it comes to coloring. They even came up with slightly odd names for each variant, Genos (yellow), Centauri (red) and Vidar (blue). These differ in the scroll wheel, DPI cycle button and shade of grey/white in the main case. They look great, with subtle casings and striking color accents, which is why we’re giving Glorious this round as they got more creative here.
Winner: Glorious Series One Pro
While the Logitech G Pro X Superlight’s roughly $150 price tag is generally considered attractive given the mouse’s top performance, it’s still way out of the budget for most people. This contrasts with the much more accessible cost of the Glorious Series One Pro, as it’s currently available as a $99 bundle purchase with free shipping in the US. Due to the big price difference, the winner here is obvious.
Winner: Glorious Series One Pro
