              The best gaming mice have changed a lot in the past few years, and we’re at the point where the best wireless gaming mice have the same or even lower latency than some wired models. You might still prefer the reliability of a wired connection, but the difference isn’t noticeable in most cases. When looking for the right gaming mouse, you’ll want to find one that fits your hand size and is suitable for your preferred grip types. It should also have a high polling rate and low click latency. Mice aren’t one size fits all, and you’ll want to choose a mouse that complements the games you like. For example, you may prefer a lightweight option for FPS games or a more versatile mouse with many side buttons if you play MOBAs, MMOs, or Battle Royales.

              We’ve tested over 290 mice, most of which are gaming mice, so if you’re looking for the best wireless or the best wired gaming mouse, we’ve listed our top picks below. If you’re only interested in wireless options, see our picks for the best wireless gaming mice, or if you’re looking for a mouse not entirely dedicated to gaming, see our recommendations for the best mice or the best wireless mice.

                The Razer Viper V2 Pro is the best gaming mouse. It shares the same shape as previous models in this popular lineup, which makes it ideal for using a claw or fingertip grip. However, it’s now significantly lighter and features Razer’s updated Focus Pro 30K sensor, one of the most accurate and consistent sensors we’ve tested. Additionally, its click buttons use optical switches designed to prevent double-clicking and last longer than standard mechanical switches. While this version is significantly lighter and easier to move quickly, it lacks some features that characterized previous models in the lineup, including rubber side grips, RGB lighting, and side buttons on both sides. If you’re more interested in weight savings, you may feel these changes are for the best.

                If you’re more a fan of some of the legacy features and don’t mind a heavier mouse, now is a great time to check out the previous generation Razer Viper Ultimate, which is currently available for cheaper than ever. Lastly, we couldn’t forgive ourselves for not mentioning the updated Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro as a possible alternative. It has the same internal components as the Viper V2 Pro and is virtually the same weight. However, it’s designed exclusively for right-handed users and is a better option for larger-sized hands, especially if you prefer using a palm grip.

                At an upper mid-range price point, we recommend the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. Lately, its price has been volatile, but it frequently goes on sale and can sometimes dip closer to the price of our mid-range pick below. This mouse has an ergonomic, right-handed shape with a thumb rest, and it’s bristling with 12 programmable buttons. It delivers excellent click latency and outstanding sensor performance, and its scroll wheel has left and right tilt inputs and lets you switch between a regular notched scrolling mode and a much faster free-scrolling mode. All these features make this mouse significantly heavier than most gaming mice designed for fast-paced experiences like FPS games. However, it’s a terrific choice if you play a wide range of games in different genres and prefer a heavier mouse. This mouse even has a set of optional weights you can add to customize the weight distribution.

                Logitech has just released new versions of this mouse called the Logitech G502 X LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G502 X PLUS (the PLUS features RGB lighting). These new entries have a softer visual look and are lighter. The button placement has also been adjusted slightly, and they feature new quiet optical switches. However, they’re substantially more expensive, so we still recommend previous-generation models unless these minor additions are priorities.

                The best gaming mouse at a mid-range price point is the Fantech Aria XD7. It has a symmetrical, egg-like shape that provides a comfortable fit for most hand sizes and grip type preferences. Despite its more affordable price tag, it’s only a bit heavier than our top pick, the Razer Viper V2 Pro. It’s loaded with PixArt’s new flagship sensor, the PAW 3395, which is closely related to the sensor in the Razer — offering superior performance across the board. It’s pictured in its lightest configuration in the photo above with a modular back plate with small cutouts to save weight. That said, it also comes with a solid back plate option that’s only slightly heavier if you prefer the look and feel of a solid plastic body.

                If this mouse has a weakness, it’s the battery life, which sits at a maximum of around 30 hours between charges. While this won’t present any problems if you get into a regular recharging schedule, it may be annoying if your usage is more variable. For an alternative around the same price point with a much longer battery life, check out the HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Wireless. The HyperX is a great alternative for casual gaming, but it’s outperformed by the Fantech if you mainly play fast-paced, competitive games because its click latency is significantly higher.

                For a mouse at a lower mid-range price point, we recommend the Razer Basilisk V3, the best wired gaming mouse we’ve tested. There’s a fairly large gap in the price of our budget pick to our mid-range pick, but this represents the price of gaming mice. There are options between these two picks, but spending a bit more or less will get you a better mouse overall. This mouse is similar to the Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED in many ways. The biggest difference is that this is a wired-only model. Otherwise, they share nearly identical ergonomic shapes, an impressive array of customizable controls, and outstanding sensor performance and click latency. The scroll wheel also has left and right tilt inputs and can switch between regular notched mode and a much faster free-scrolling mode.

                This mouse offers a notable advantage if you don’t mind or even prefer a wired mouse. Because it doesn’t need to hold a rechargeable battery, it’s significantly lighter, making it an excellent option for handling faster-paced titles like FPS games that require quick mouse movements. Altogether, this is a standout pick if you’re interested in a high-performance, versatile gaming mouse but don’t need the flexibility of a wireless connection.

                At a budget price point, we recommend the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED. Depending on what region of the world you live in, this mouse may be called the Logitech G304 LIGHTSPEED, but they’re the same mouse. The G305’s symmetrical, egg-shaped body is very comfortable and accommodating for nearly all hand sizes using a claw or fingertip grip. The build quality is also impressive. There’s no creaking or flexibility in the body, and despite being significantly more affordable, it feels nearly as premium as the more expensive Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED. It connects wirelessly with Logitech’s LIGHTSPEED USB receiver and gets an impressive advertised battery life of up to 250 hours from a single AA battery.

                Last but not least, this mouse has excellent click latency and consistent sensor performance. Its major downside is its weight, making it harder to make snappy, responsive mouse movements for faster-paced games. If you prefer a wired alternative, the Logitech G203 LIGHTSYNC shares the same shape and build quality and is typically less expensive. It’s also considerably lighter and has customizable RGB lighting. However, its sensor doesn’t perform quite as well.

                All the mice on this list have superior performance to satisfy nearly everyone, but the Razer Viper 8KHz is pushing the limits of current technology and is geared toward a truly performance-obsessed gamer. This mouse shares much of the same DNA as our top pick in this article, the Razer Viper V2 Pro. It isn’t as lightweight and doesn’t connect wirelessly. However, it offers the best raw performance at a solidly mid-range price point. While most gaming mice have a maximum polling rate of 1000Hz, this mouse natively supports higher polling rates with a maximum of 8000Hz. Higher polling rates produce slightly smoother cursor movements and marginally improved latency, even compared to flagship mice. However, it’s important to note that these higher polling rates consume considerable system resources. The performance gains are small but noticeable, and you’ll need a fairly powerful rig to take full advantage of the feature.

                If you’re impressed by the performance but aren’t a fan of the low-profile symmetrical shape of this mouse, you may be interested in the Razer DeathAdder V3 as an alternative. The DeathAdder V3 offers the same high-end performance as the Viper 8KHz, including native support for an 8000Hz polling rate, but it has an ergonomic right-handed shape with a larger, more high-profile design, making it an outstanding pick for larger hands. Despite its size, it’s even a little lighter. However, it’s also a bit more expensive.

              Notable Mentions

              • Razer Viper Mini Signature Edition:
                The Razer Viper Mini Signature Edition performs slightly better than our top pick, the Razer Viper V2 Pro. And it has a magnesium alloy exoskeleton that makes it even lighter but just as sturdy. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also the first gaming mouse to support a wireless polling rate of 8000Hz. We aren’t recommending it as our top pick because it’s only being released in tiny batches and is much more expensive than just about everything else on the market.

              • Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT:
                The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT is an extremely close competitor to the Razer Viper V2 Pro in terms of raw performance and weight. However, its advertised battery life isn’t quite as long, and it uses an outdated micro-USB cable for charging. It’s also a bit more expensive but does sometimes go on sale.

              • Cooler Master MM720:
                It may have an unusual shape, but the Cooler Master MM720 is a surprisingly high-performance and comfortable budget pick slightly lighter than significantly more premium options, including the Razer Viper V2 Pro. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feel as sturdy and well-built, and due to its unconventional look and shape, it won’t be a perfect fit for everyone.

              Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best mice for gaming for most people, whether you prefer wired or wireless models. We factor in the price (a cheaper mouse wins over a pricier one if the difference isn’t worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no mice that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

              If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of our gaming mice reviews. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no mouse is perfect for every use, most mice are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.

              The Cooler Master MM720 is an outstanding ultra-light gaming mouse. It feels fairly well-built with its honeycomb design, and it’s extremely light. The right-handed design is very comfortable and works best for those using a claw grip, except for those with extra-large hands. The virgin-grade PFTE feet and the paracord-like cable help provide a smooth gliding experience on mousepads or desks. It has extremely low click latency, a high maximum polling rate, and you can reprogram most of its buttons. It also has a very wide CPI range that you can adjust in steps of 100.

              Our Verdict

              6.0

              Work

              The Cooler Master MM720 is okay for office use. It’s very comfortable, has a good number of programmable inputs, and feels fairly well-built. However, it’s wired-only, and the scroll wheel can’t be unlocked for infinite scrolling.

              Cons

              • Scroll wheel can’t be unlocked for infinite scrolling.

              • Can’t be used wirelessly.

              • May be too bulky to fit in some laptop cases.

              The Cooler Master MM720 and the Razer Pro Click Mini are mice designed for different uses. The Cooler Master performs better as a gaming mouse thanks to its lower click latency, lower lift-off distance, wider CPI range, and better quality PTFE feet. It also has a unique ergonomic shape with a ring finger rest. However, it’s wired-only. On the other hand, the Razer is designed for office use. It has a scroll wheel that you can unlock for free scrolling, and its solid, plastic body feels better built. Also, it’s heavier and wireless-only.

              The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless and the Cooler Master MM720 are both well-performing ultra-light gaming mice, but with some differences. The SteelSeries has a more standard ambidextrous shape and supports a wireless connection and multi-device pairing. Its wireless connectivity also means you don’t have to deal with cable drag while gaming. On the other hand, the Cooler Master is a wired mouse designed for right-handed use and has a much wider body thanks to its ring finger rest. That said, it has higher quality feet and lower click latency, but its CPI variation is a bit high.

              The Cooler Master MM720 and the SteelSeries Aerox 3 are similar wired mice with a lightweight honeycomb body and a standard right-handed button layout. The Cooler Master is much lighter, and its ergonomic shape is more comfortable, but it might not be to everyone’s liking, in which case, the SteelSeries’ ambidextrous shape might be a better choice. The Cooler Master’s cable and feet are of higher quality, and its sensor has a wide CPI range and lower lift-off distance. The SteelSeries has a better build quality and is fully compatible with macOS, which the Cooler Master isn’t.

              This mouse has decent build quality. The ABS plastic honeycomb body isn’t the most solid-feeling as it squeaks and seems like it could crack if you press hard enough, but this shouldn’t be an issue for everyday use. The feet feel great, and overall there aren’t any loose parts that would raise any concern. If you want a honeycomb mouse with better build quality, check out the HyperX Pulsefire Haste.

              This mouse is very comfortable. It has a right-handed, ergonomic shape designed mainly for those who use the claw grip. The side buttons are easy-to-reach, and it comes with extra grips if you find the glossy plastic too slippery. There’s a groove on the right side to rest your ring finger, but your pinky will still hang off the side.

              top-10 rating according to KP

              At the dawn of the computer era, there were no mice at all, and the first models that appeared were bulky and equipped with a “ball” that transmitted information to a personal computer. By modern standards, they were very slow, gave failures and quickly clogged. Nowadays, devices are much more compact and functional, and their response time is high, even for budget models. At the same time, gaming and office mice at first glance are arranged in the same way and an inexperienced user is unlikely to understand and appreciate all their capabilities.

              The main differences between mice for work and gaming are their shape, the response time provided by the mouse sensor and the presence of additional keys on the body.

              Game devices have high speed and smoothness, which is especially important for shooters – because this is what affects the accuracy and speed of shooting, bringing the desired victory in the match closer. It is also important for MOBA games, for example, the beloved Dota, although not so much.

              Thinking about buying and don’t know how to choose the best device? KP has prepared a material for this, which will consider the TOP 10 best gaming mice in 2023.

              Genesis KRYPTON 700. Photo: Genesis 90 064 This computer mouse stands out among other best models with its original backlight, made in the form of an LED semicircle on the body of the device. It is equipped with 8 buttons. The cable here is long, the characteristics are average. One of the additional buttons is unusually located on the edge of the left “main” – an unusual solution that many players may like.

              Pros and cons

              Original arrangement of additional keys, beautiful LED gradient backlighting, long cable

              For right-handers, average characteristics – it may not be enough for gamers

              An inexpensive solution with a very aggressive style. Users note that it fits comfortably in a large hand, which is not typical for all models. Some keys are selectively backlit, which allows you to comfortably play in the dark and quickly respond by pressing the game situation.

              Pros and cons

              Low cost, bright black and red design, suitable for players with large hands

              Some complaints about the build quality (backlash / squeak)

              This is one of the best gaming mice in the mid-price category, unlike many others – it is symmetrical. It can be used by left-handed people if the arrangement of additional keys suits them. The backlight is located around the perimeter and comfortably illuminates the work area around the device.

              Pros and cons

              Can be used by left-handed gamers, 7 buttons, minimalistic design

              Not the best specifications for the money, as the mouse is symmetrically difficult to call its anatomical shape

              This mouse is made in the thematic style of the World of Tanks game (I think you have heard of it if you have not lived in isolation for the last 10 years). Aggressive design with sharp corners, illuminated wheel and very high resolution optical sensor. There are not so many additional buttons, but it is positioned for tanks, so they are hardly needed.

              Pros and cons

              WoT themed design, 12k dpi optical sensor resolution, eye-catching design, unusual backlit wheel

              If you are going to play not only shooters, it may not be the most obvious choice, symmetrical design may not suit everyone

              Another representative of branded gaming models, now from ASUS. The design of the device is quite discreet – no decorations, except for the TUF logo on the back. Considering the cost, the performance is underwhelming. Nevertheless, this is a well-known brand, with high build quality and technological details.

              Pros and cons

              Well-known brand, quality build, minimalistic style (with such a mouse you will not become an outcast either in the office or in the company of gamers)

              Very average performance, symmetrical design, without regard to anatomical features

              How to choose a gaming mouse

              9011 4 The range of such devices is large, but the question remains – how to choose a tourist gas burner? How to find one that will work in any conditions and invariably give fire? An experienced tourist helps to find the answer to this question Dmitry Klenkin .

              Popular Questions and Answers

              Should I choose a mouse with the most buttons?

              Depends on what you are going to play with it. For playing cooperative shooters like Counter-Strike, you probably won’t need them, but in MMORPGs like World of Warcraft, they won’t hurt at all. To successfully play them, you need to apply a large number of skills in a limited period of time, and by transferring at least some of them from the keyboard to “quick access” to the mouse, you can make it easier to use them.

              What affects the sensitivity of the optical sensor?

              The sensitivity of the optical sensor is expressed in units of dpi and affects the speed and accuracy of cursor or crosshair movement. It acquires particular importance in shooters and action games, allowing you to aim at the target as quickly and accurately as possible. With a low score, the gameplay will be very difficult and will not allow the player to reach their full potential. In single-player games or strategies, this is not so important and 2-3 thousand dpi should be enough, but in online shooters – the more the better, it’s better to start from 6-10 thousand.

              What should left-handed players do?

              I am right-handed and there are no particular problems with the choice, but many left-handed acquaintances complain about the small number of devices on the market and the problems with finding them. Well-known manufacturers often produce mice for both right and left grip, they can be available on order or found in specialized stores for gamers. Another option is to buy a symmetrical mouse and try to get used to it. The main thing is to pay attention to the location of the keys and the ability to use them if necessary. Several friends are left-handed, but at the same time they hold the mouse with their right hand, but these are special cases. It’s definitely not worth retraining for the sake of this, given that there may be problems with playing skills.

              Best gaming mice of 2023 – real gamer’s choice

              Best gaming mouse… is not an easy decision to make for such a subjective type of device. That said, last year was a great time for gaming mice, and 2023 looks like it’s already heating up.

              We had the ergonomic king keep its crown with the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro, the Logitech G Pro X Superlight improved on the venerable original, and we even managed to get our hands on the Glorious Series One Pro .

              In addition, the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro has managed to live up to the glory of its predecessor and even improve it a bit without compromising its award-winning form.

              If talking about shapes, sensors and ergonomics is a bit confusing, don’t worry, the following article will explain everything you need to know about when buying your new computer mouse.

              Ultimate Gaming Mice Choice

              1. Razer Viper Ultimate is a great wireless gaming mouse

                The Razer

                has long been highly regarded by the gaming community for its excellent build quality and uncompromising focus on performance. Its aesthetic isn’t for everyone, but if you can stomach the glow of green lights and three-headed snakes, this is probably the gaming mouse for you. The

                Viper Ultimate can be quite an expensive solution, but its smartly designed wireless dock makes this mouse one of the most complete options for the gamer who doesn’t mind paying a premium for the best wireless gaming mouse.

                What We Liked :

                • Excellent Optical Sensor
                • Very light for a wireless mouse
                • Double-sided design
                • Sensitive optical switches
                • Excellent materials

                What disappointed us :

                • Dear

                The

                Razer Viper Ultimate strikes the best balance between weight, shape and function we’ve ever seen. No, this is not the lightest mouse, and it does not have an ergonomic shape, but it more than compensates for its shortcomings. Before you 9The 0115 is the most feature-packed, premium and feature-packed mouse we’ve ever tested.

                The

                mouse is fantastic, it uses the familiar reversible Viper shape we all know, saves a bit on weight, retains wireless functionality and comes with the most convenient charging/connection solution. The charging dock hides the 2.4GHz adapter, charges the mouse and displays it at an attractive angle to impress the passing mouse lover. In addition, the backlight around the base of the dock reflects the mouse’s battery level, so you can see at a glance how much power you have left.

                Docking aside, the mouse exhibits the fit and finish we’ve come to expect from Razer. With very little squeak or rattle, and mouse switches are rated for 20 million clicks. The 20,000 dpi sensor also stands out for its outstanding accuracy and reliability. We didn’t notice any lag or spin-up during testing and were generally impressed with both the gameplay and the overall user experience of Viper Ultimate.

                The only downside we can say is the lack of Bluetooth connectivity, so it might be less than ideal as an input device for tablets, but it’s hard to get an all-in-one, isn’t it?

              2. Glorious Model O is the best wired gaming mouse

                If you’re looking for a purpose-built, no-compromise, high-performance wired mouse, the Glorious Model O is a great choice. This mouse not only has one of the best and most accurate sensors, but also offers one of the most comfortable and ergonomic designs.

                This is a serious mouse aimed at providing the best performance and functionality. While performance can be subjective, we were very impressed with the Model O’s feature set.0003

                What we like :

                • Lightweight
                • High level sensors and switches
                • Tenacious surface texture
                • Low friction gaming experience

                What disappointed us :

                • Cheap texture on the scroll wheel

                Glorious Model O – has a comprehensive set of performance-oriented features that make the mouse very competitive at a disproportionately low price.

                The glossy finish isn’t for everyone, but we liked the extra grip it gives the user. Matte versions are also available if you prefer a more traditional texture. The Pixart PMW-3360 sensor is widely regarded as one of the best in terms of accuracy and speed. During our testing, we did not notice any inconsistencies and enjoyed the gameplay provided by the O.

                model

                Additional benefits include 100% PTFE feet, PTFE feet are standard these days, but Glorious has the foresight to provide a beveled edge right out of the box, eliminating the need for a break-in period. We also liked the maximum DPI of 12,000, not the highest we’ve seen, but good enough for most gamers.

                Other features that help make the O the best wired gaming mouse include a fairly easy-to-use software package that’s easy to use and provides everything you need to set up a gaming mouse without being bloated with extra nonsense or ads.

                The bearded man’s mark might be a bit inappropriate for some, but it’s hidden by hand during use, so it didn’t matter to us.

              3. Razer Viper V2 Pro is the best Ultralight 9 mouse0013

                This gaming mouse is even lighter than its predecessors. The use of different materials and a more efficient battery, as well as getting rid of the buttons on the right and the Chroma RGB lighting, resulted in a weight reduction of 16 grams. Thanks to this, the Razer Viper V2 Pro weighs only 58 grams. And this is just the beginning…

                What we like :

                • Comfortable
                • Incredibly light
                • Responsive and accurate sensor
                • Tenacious surface texture
                • Excellent battery life

                What disappointed us :

                • Dear

                Next up is the recently crowned ultralight gaming mouse Razer Viper V2 Pro . At the weight of a tennis ball, this is one of the lightest gaming mice without compromising on features. This makes it probably the most ideal mouse on this list for competitive first-person shooters.

                Thanks to the all-new Razer Focus Pro optical sensor, this mouse is capable of delivering a shockingly high resolution of 30,000 DPI at 750 IPS. These features make the Viper V2 Pro one of the best performing gaming mice around, and it’s also wireless. Unfortunately, as part of the drastic weight loss regime, we lost the Viper Ultimate’s excellent magnetic charging dock, and Razer even decided to ditch the RGB lighting, something we never expected to see from the Singapore giant.

                We recently compared the Logitech G Pro X Superlight with the Razer Viper V2 Pro and Team Green came out on top. The G Pro X put up a good fight, but when it comes to ultra-light gaming mice, the Razer Viper V2 Pro is the absolute best device you can get, at least for now.

                The

                Given the weight and results of our testing, we’re confident it will become widely used by eSports pros, despite missing some side buttons, and could be the second best wireless gaming mouse after the Viper Ultimate.

              4. DeepCool MC310 Ultralight Gaming Mouse

                This is DeepCool’s first foray into the peripheral market and they’ve knocked it out of the park. The MC310 comes at a price lower than equivalent mice and is all you need for an ultra-light budget choice.

                With a skeletonized design, impressive tactile buttons and a very accurate sensor, it’s safe to say that the MC310 impresses.

                What we liked :

                • Nice surface texture
                • Reliable, sensitive sensor
                • Discreet aesthetic
                • Excellent button tactility
                • Reasonable price

                What disappointed us :

                • Questionable build quality
                • Inexplicably massive USB cover

                The DeepCool MC310 is as easy as it gets with mice. The software is simple and less demanding than the usual kits we are given with gaming mice. The sensor is reliable, the surface is pleasant, the buttons click. RGB is really bright and highly customizable. Also, the maximum DPI of 12800 is a comfortable midrange, not the highest we’ve seen, but more than adequate for most gamers.

                An important advantage here is the price, surprisingly low. Such high performance at such a low price makes sense in a market filled with expensive and low-function items. While there are better performing mice out there, if you want the absolute best bang for your buck, this is the mouse for you.

              5. Logitech G502 HERO – Best Ergonomic Gaming Mouse

                The

                Logitech has a reputation for making some of the highest rated gaming mice around. The G502 HERO is no exception, with record sales and a list of features that mice would envy at twice the price. 9The 0003

                G502 Hero has an ultra ergonomic form factor that is equally effective for full palm and claw grips. It also features a new dual-mode scroll wheel, a thumb DPI switch, and a weight that adjusts in 3.6g increments.

                What We Liked :

                • Infinite Scroll Wheel
                • Convenient right design
                • G-Shift button to change DPI on the fly
                • Adjustable weight

                What disappointed us :

                • Heavy
                • Not suitable for fingertip users

                The

                G502 The is something special, quite possibly the most feature-packed mouse we’ve come across, and the price is ridiculously competitive.

                Let’s start with the design. This is a triumph of ergonomics, unless you are, of course, left-handed. The shape of the mouse is designed for an ultra-secure grip with the palm of your hand, but gripping with claws or even fingertips is also possible. It’s an incredibly comfortable mouse for extended use, especially if you don’t mind its rather hefty weight of 121g. Other strengths of this mouse are the dual-mode scroll wheel and DPI toggle button.

                The dual-mode scroll wheel transforms from a standard scroll wheel to a freewheel, almost like a flywheel, with constant rotation. This is especially useful for scrolling through long web pages or just for playing games. The DPI switch button is a game changer in the competitive FPS scene. All of these features come together to secure a solid spot on the list of the best gaming mice.

              6. Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB MMO Gaming Mouse

                The

                Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB is a great mouse for MMO gaming. Corsair is solid in its products and this mouse features 12 mechanical thumb buttons as well as an advanced optical sensor for great gaming performance.

                What we liked :

                • Fantastic aesthetic design
                • Adjustable numeric keypad position
                • Superb build quality
                • Mechanical buttons
                • High quality optical sensor

                What disappointed us :

                • Heavy

                There are “only” 17 buttons, fewer than Lotiechs G600, but it’s enough for any MMO fan. All this can be configured in the software, moreover, the position of the thumb buttons can be changed with an adjustment of up to 8 mm. These thumb buttons are secured with a patented control system and have been designed with professional players in mind for consistent tactile feedback.

                The

                Scimitar’s shape and weight mean it’s not the best choice for FPS games, but the 3369 PWM sensor is the best optical and has the accuracy to make FPS games viable. In any case, you get a very reliable sensor that will not fail.

                This mouse is definitely designed for small to medium sized hands, and the palm grip is the least natural grip style of this gaming mouse.

                The design of this mouse is quite simple, but it has some elegance thanks to its gentle slopes and contours. The ergonomics of this mouse seem to be pretty good. The matte finish provides a decent level of grip, no matter how wet your palm gets on those hot summer nights.

              Buying a Gaming Mouse Key Points

              It’s important to know the key aspects of a great gaming mouse. These key features will affect not only the price of the mouse, but more importantly, the performance of the in the game.

              We found that the following specifications are important when looking for a gaming mouse:

              Gaming Mouse Size

              When choosing a gaming mouse, choose the one that fits your hand size. Depending on your size, you can choose a slightly larger/smaller mouse, but it’s worth measuring your hand and even trying a sample in the store to make sure the mouse fits your hand.

              Weight of the gaming mouse

              Weight can be a very subjective part of a mouse, but it can greatly affect accuracy.

              Weight is largely a matter of preference and any gamer will get used to the weight of a new mouse after a bit of use. However, buying a wireless gaming mouse is still a major concern as most wireless gaming mice are quite heavy due to the additional hardware the mouse includes for wireless communication and power generation.

              Wireless technology in gaming mice is being optimized every day , which means that most wireless mice are becoming as lightweight as wired ones. For example, take the Logitech G Pro Wireless, which weighs just 80 grams (which is lighter than many wired mice).

              Gaming Mouse Sensor

              Gaming mice have two types of mouse sensors: Optical or Laser .

              The main difference comes down to the light source. This is also the reason why some mice perform well on smooth surfaces while others do not. An optical sensor uses LED light as a source, while a laser sensor uses… a laser.

              Although they differ in their light source, they both use a CMOS sensor, a type of low resolution video camera you can find in smartphones. This sensor captures an image of the surface it is on and uses it to detect motion reflections in real time.

              Most modern gaming mice include good sensors, such as the Pixart 3366. There are very few gaming mice with poor sensors on the market today.

              Gaming mouse polling rate

              Polling rate is the rate of data transfer and response from the mouse to the computer. It is measured in hertz and ranges from 250 Hz to 1000 Hz.

              Mouse at 500 Hz means that the computer receives an update on the position of the mouse every two milliseconds. While 1000Hz is technically twice as fast at just 1ms, the difference is almost imperceptible, especially to most average gamers. Even though they don’t see the difference, most gamers will prefer a more responsive gaming mouse if they don’t need to conserve battery while working.

              CPI or DPI of a gaming mouse

              Technically speaking, CPI (number per inch) is the same as DPI (dots per inch). DPI is used to measure the distance traveled by the mouse by counting “dots” within one inch. DPI is best used in relation to the printing world, while CPI is the correct term to use in relation to computer mice.

              Despite this, manufacturers use DPI for marketing purposes because DPI is more widely known.

              Gaming mouse software and profiles

              Most gaming mice have some programmable buttons, but you will need software that allows you to remap them.

              For example:

              • Logitech G Hub
              • Synapse 3
              • Roccat Swarm
              • Corsair iCue
              • SteelSeries Engine

              The vast majority of mice come with software that will help you assign macros, change DPI, lift-off distance and, in some cases, customize RGB lighting.

              Modern gamers expect mouse software to save custom profiles for easy on-the-fly settings changes, custom polling rates, and quick switching between Windows and Mac OS.

              It is worth noting that there are gaming mice that do not require any software at all and remain very functional. These kinds of mice will simply let you switch between a predefined DPI and a polling rate.

              Material and durability of the gaming mouse

              The gaming mouse can be made of plastic, metal or even glass. Some mice may have a matte finish while others may have a silky smooth finish, so it’s important to know your material preferences before purchasing.

              Strength and material usually go hand in hand, but this is not always the case because it also depends on the manufacturer. You’ll see we have three Logitech mice in our review and that’s largely down to the brand’s fantastic build quality.

              It’s also worth noting that mice are rated by the number of clicks the manufacturer estimates they are guaranteed to complete before they break.

              Gaming Mouse Comfort

              When it comes to comfort, there are a few key areas to pay attention to as hand sizes and grip styles vary greatly from player to player.

              Comfortable gaming mouse – very important whether you use it for a short or long period of time. If you don’t have a comfortable mouse, it can negatively impact your gaming performance and even cause discomfort in rare cases.

              Battery life (for wireless gaming mice)

              Wireless gaming mice technology has come to the point where you can almost completely rely on such a device, even in e-sports. Gone are the days when lag interfered with gameplay or had to interrupt the game as you have to recharge an extremely heavy battery. Modern mice come with a rechargeable lithium battery.

              Gaming mouse grip style

              Gaming mouse grip style depends on a number of factors: hand size, comfort, mouse and accuracy. There are three basic grip styles for : palm, claw and fingertip. Each one is used by many players around the world, so don’t feel embarrassed if you don’t use the same style as your favorite player.

              Three basic types of mouse grip:

              • Style palm grip when the whole hand is in contact and rests on the mouse. This type of grip ensures maximum stability and high precision.
              • Claw-style grip – when your palm is in contact with the bottom of the mouse and your fingers are arched over the buttons. This is a great option for people playing FPS as it improves responsiveness and accuracy.
              • Finger Grip – The hand floats in the air with the fingertips in contact with the mouse. Since your palm is not resting on the mouse, this gives you the most precise control, but fatigue comes much earlier.

              Which gaming mouse suits you best

              All of these gaming mice are designed with premium performance and a well thought out shape for comfort and flawless precision.

              We hope one of our options suits your specific needs. However, if you don’t have any, always keep the following tips in mind when you’re shopping for a gaming mouse:

            2. Define your grip style
            3. Consider what games you are most likely to play
            4. Ask yourself if you will use this mouse every day
            5. Find out what materials you want your mouse to be made of
            6. This is what you should do before you go shopping for a new mouse.
