There isn’t a stronger rivalry between two mice than there is between the Razer Viper Ultimate and the Logitech G pro X Superlight, in my opinion. The two companies’ flagship mice, and let me say that this decision was the most difficult I’ve faced since starting to write tech reviews. These two mice are excellent, but I promise no draws; I have to choose which one I prefer and will use as my primary mouse, so let’s start this competition.

Logitech G pro X Superlight
I always like to start with the box in these reviews and comparisons. what’s inside, how it looks, and how it’s presented to you. The box for the Logitech mouse is very understated, but when you open it, it feels extraordinary and like you’ve received something high-end and premium if you know what I mean.
Since it comes with a dongle extender, you can extend the dongle up to your desk like I do to prevent interference between your mouse and the dongle. The unboxing experience differs slightly from what you usually get inside a box. You get the mouse, the dongle, and the extender. Both mice’s micro USB connections twitch, which in my opinion, is kind of annoying, but it’s not a big deal because they both come with excellent micro USB wires.
The Logitech mouse comes with Grip tape inside the box, which I used, and a PTFE puck to swap out on the bottom because you can expand the feet area by doing so by switching from the regular plastic puck to the PTFE puck. In addition, the instructions and those stickers are the essential items that could be included in the box. I use it because I prefer having more footing; the more footing, the better glide.
Razer Viper Ultimate
The Razer Viper Ultimate’s box is the exact opposite of understated; it is loud and in your face, but at the same time, it is clear from the box that it is from Razer. They definitely have their distinct packaging style, if you know what I mean. Their branding is instantly recognizable in that bright green, and the unboxing process inside is much more relaxed. You get the mouse, the dongle, and another extender for your dongle twitch.
They went to town with the stickers, including these useless RGB chroma stickers that no one would ever use. The design of these mice couldn’t be more dissimilar, and it also includes a very thin micro USB wire that extends all the way to the desk, the instructions, and tonnes of stickers.
Logitech G pro X Superlight VS Razer Viper Ultimate: Design
The G Pro’s design is very straightforward and understated; twitch works well; function is more important than form; weight and shape were the most crucial factors and I respect that the mouse weighs a staggering 63 grammes without any holes. The dimensions are ideal. It is not overly large with a height of 125 mm and a width of 63.5 mm.
The entire mouse has a smooth, plasticky feel to it, not in a bad way, but it’s smooth and is a problem, which is why I use the grip tape on the sides. I prefer Razer’s design because it is more attractive. The plastic has a nicer feel. The rubber is nicer on each side. The G pro X Superlight weighs 63 grammes, while the Razer weighs 74 grammes. It is roughly the same size as the Logitech G Pro, except slightly shorter. Its size is also similar in the front and back, and, according to razer, it has an ambidextrous shape.
Logitech G pro X Superlight VS Razer Viper Ultimate: Buttons, Scroll wheel & Switches
I adore the scroll wheel on the Logitech G Pro X Superlight because it has a tactile bump in addition to a smooth and tactile feel. The Viper Ultimate’s scroll wheel is rougher when you scroll it, but I like that tactility. However, I like how the Logitech gives you the best of both worlds by being smooth and tactile.
The scroll wheel has nice accents, including a silver G and a little white. The scroll wheel has a nice rubber texture. The G pro X Superlight removes those buttons, leaving only 5 buttons on the mouse and leaving out the DPI switch. The original G Pro had buttons on the other side, so technically, it was supposed to be an anti-dexterous shape.
The Viper Ultimate has nine buttons in total, plus a DPI switch; I really appreciate that. However, I have one complaint: I wish the PTFE had been customizable because there isn’t much of a footing there, and moving it causes it to scrape and drag on your mouse pad.
Logitech G pro X Superlight VS Razer Viper Ultimate: Features
I’ve never experienced a connection error or dropout with either wireless technology, so they’re incredibly dependable. The Razer Viper Ultimate has Razer Hyperspeed Wireless, and the Logitech G Pro X Superlight has what they call Logitech Lightspeed Technology.
Razers Chroma RGB is a feature of the Razer Viper Ultimate. The Razer Viper Ultimate is undoubtedly preferable to the Logitech G pro X Superlight if RGB customization is important to you and something you care about. It comes in four colour options, and the G pro X Superlight is available in two colour options: white and black.
Both devices claim to have a battery life of more than 70 hours, but I’m pretty sure that figure refers to the time when the RGB is turned off because it’s not stated on their websites, and I haven’t had to plug either one of these in yet. They both have support for the software. The Razer Viper Ultimate has a maximum DPI of 20,000, while the Logitech G Pro X Superlight has a maximum DPI of 25,600. Razer has Sypnaps, while Logitech has their G-hub.
If I had to choose in any other category, I’d go with the Razer. For long sessions. It just feels nicer and more comfortable because it has a more ergonomic feel. The buttons feel better, the grip on the side feels nicer, and the side shapes feel better. However, I prefer the G pro X Superlight in weight and shape, which is the only reason I am keeping it on my desk.
