Final Thoughts on Logitech Unifying

Of course, it would have been better if Logitech had made its Unifying technology compatible with open Bluetooth. But, technically, the technologies hardly differ from each other.

Meanwhile, Bluetooth even has a much better value in terms of range. Still, Unify is a valuable thing for gamers with multiple Logitech products. For example, switch from office computer to gaming computer and keep the same mouse? You can do this with Unifying at the touch of a button.

Managing all paired devices through a single software also has many advantages.

Since Logitech has the most popular gaming mouse among professional gamers in its portfolio with the wireless G Pro and its successor, the G Pro X Superlight,ambitious gamers will have a hard time overlooking Logitech anyway.

Almost as popular among professional gamers is the corresponding keyboard, G Pro X Mechanical. But, sadly, Logitech has decided not to equip these three products with Unifying technology.
