There are many factors to consider when buying a gaming mouse. In terms of specs the big one is DPI (dots per inch) and you should be looking for something in the 8,000-16,000 range. Acceleration and tracking are also important factors, as too whether the mouse has mechanically switched buttons. Obviously, button quantity is also important, as too design and grip type (remember, there are different ways to grip a mouse – claw, palm, fingertip etc – and you should determine what your grip is before coughing up as specific mice are designed, primarily, for specific grips).
Razer Naga Epic Chroma MMO Gaming Mouse
While the Naga Epic Chroma is still primarily for MMO diehards, its colorful lighting, incredible performance and perfect wireless capabilities make it one of the best genre-specific mice on the market. From a physical perspective, not much has changed about the Razer Naga from its wired, monocolored 2014 incarnation. It’s still an enormous mouse, usable only with a palm grip, and it features a high profile and a plethora of thumb buttons.
The mouse is textured for the outermost two fingers,… and the texture makes for a nice touch, but it’s not entirely necessary. The Naga Epic Chroma is comfortable enough, but its design makes it ideal for high-level MMO play and relatively unsuited for any other genre. The Naga Epic Chroma possesses a staggering 19 buttons: a right button, a left button, a scroll wheel that clicks three ways, two central buttons and 12 thumb buttons.
Entrusting one digit with 12 buttons may sound like a recipe for disaster, but the buttons are actually quite large and feel distinctive. The buttons also employ mechanical switches, which give a satisfying click when you press them. The major change from the standard Naga mouse to the Naga Epic Chroma is the Chroma’s wireless capabilities.
CORSAIR GLAIVE – RGB Gaming Mouse
The Glaive RGB from Corsair is a gaming mouse that aims to appeal to all gamers. Allowing for the user to quickly hot-swap different side pieces, the Glaive is a highly versatile mouse that gamers can adapt to suit their hands and play style.
The Glaive is larger than the average-sized mouse,… with a fairly long and narrow structure. Its design fits in nicely with the rest of mice in Corsair’s range, with a large RGB-equipped Corsair logo standing proud against the Glaive’s matte-black finish. It’s mainly made from plastic, but an aluminium bar can be found along the top of the mouse. It’s available in two colour options: jet black and aluminium (tested).
In the center you’ll find five LED indicators that detail the current DPI stage, a DPI toggle switch, scroll-wheel and click buttons. The scroll-wheel is grippy and flows nicely in use – although, sadly, it isn’t illuminated. The left and right clicks use Omron switches with a short travel distance, and Corsair claims that each can last for 50 million clicks. Note that these aren’t user-replaceable as with Asus’ Gladius II, however.
Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED Gaming Mouse
The Logitech G900 has reigned as the undisputed king of wireless gaming mice since it was introduced last year. Now, a successor has already been named with the Logitech G903. To many, this peripheral might seem like a premature sequel. However, its ability to constantly draw power from Logitech’s new PowerPlay mouse pad could solve one of the last annoyances of wireless gaming mice.
Despite flaunting a price high enough… to make your eyes water, the performance of Logitech’s flagship wireless gaming mouse, and the convenience the wireless charging pad, are worth every cent in our book. Physically speaking, the Logitech G903 only varies in subtle ways from its predecessor. The gunmetal gray parts of the Logitech G900 have been replaced with a purely black color scheme.
While this gives the mouse a more uniform look, we wished Logitech didn’t remove the soft touch coating on the front edge of the peripheral, as it gave us an extra bit of texture for our ring finger to rest against. The bigger shakeup is on the underside of Logitech G903, which now features a puck-shaped cavity. In this space, you can either add a 10 gram weight or attach a ‘PowerCore’ module that we’ll get into more later.
G602 Lag-Free Wireless Gaming Mouse
The gaming peripheral manufacturing companies always try to pacify the gamers with time to time improvements in this regard. Here Logitech has done something great to let us experience our adrenaline effect with no obstruction by offering a gaming mouse which can last up to a whopping duration of 250 hours of nonstop gaming.
No doubt, battery is an important factor… for wireless mouse. Logitech G602 is powered by 2 AA batteries that amounts to about 250 hours of gameplay. Although mouse is meant to work with single battery that can last for 125 hours of gameplay and at the same time keep the mouse weight down and performance high.
G602 is right-handed mouse, which is most comfortable with palm-grip. Thumb rest extends out from side for additional support, and the ribbed rubberized texture improves the grip while the palms become sweaty. Curvature of mouse feels organic and users are satisfied to say that it is the comfiest design out there. No doubt, lack of wires results in a mouse which is easy to slide, however, its smooth bottom also assists it to glide flat surfaces.
Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse
The MX Master wireless is Logitech’s current flagship mouse, which comes with a spec sheet that’s almost as long as a spoilt child’s birthday wish list. As well as a stunning, ergonomic design, it has a clever speed-adaptive scroll wheel, the ability to connect to three different devices at once and a thumb wheel. It’s pricey, but the MX Master is great to use and delivers almost flawless performance.
The MX Master is a striking mouse,… featuring a funky-looking blend of smooth and gently textured surfaces, and curved, swooping edges. It essentially looks like a classic mouse mounted on an extra piece of plastic that juts out from the left side of the base. An eye-catching mix of metallic gold and matte black, all soft to the touch, is the colour scheme of choice.
This all results in a unique look, but in a really good way. It’s far more visually appealing than most mice, and approaches – dare I say – cool territory. The downside of this, however, is that the Master sticks out like a sore thumb on the average desktop. Our dull grey telephone and clunky keyboard look shabby alongside it, almost like seeing a suited-and-booted David Beckham sandwiched between Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.
VicTsing Wireless Gaming Mouse with Unique Silent Click
It appears to be made by “Easterntimes Tech” in China and then resold by other brands, without modification. The skimpy multi-language instructions sheet is full of tortured English gibberish like, “LED switch button is on bottom of mouse, there are three option ON, OFF,ON/light ,put it at ON/light , the LED with be lighting up.” That is a verbatim transcription of how the text appears, misplaced commas and all.
There is no place to plug in a cable… for wired operation should you run out of juice and have no AA battery available. The bottom also contains a small slot to hold the USB wireless dongle for transport. This is a mid-to-low profile mouse suitable for claw-style grip, but the heavy rear weight from the AA battery makes it hard to keep the mouse straight with just your fingertips.

Logitech G403 Wireless Gaming Mouse with High Performance
The G403 is a part of the new Prodigy line from Logitech, reportedly engineered to make high-end gaming gear more approachable. By reducing the number of buttons and evoking a classic design, the venerable peripheral company hopes to attract the elusive casual crowd without sacrificing their hardcore gaming pedigree. The G403 is the centerpiece of this outreach effort, but can Logitech reach such a broad audience with a single product line?
Gaming mice are often defined… by their exotic shapes, but the Prodigy line takes things back to basics. Logitech employs a classic design for the G403 that feels natural and familiar, with a slightly tapered grip where your thumb and ring finger rest on the mouse, it glides across most surfaces with ease. It’s a stark contrast against other popular gaming mice like the Razer Naga, which boasts 12 buttons and a more unconventional shape.
It’s utilitarian but not very approachable, and feels a bit wide in the hand. The Logitech G403 just barely flirts with ‘gaming gear’ conventions by jazzing up its matte black finish with RGB LEDs under the G logo and the scroll wheel. Both of which are programmable via the Logitech Gaming Software, but we’ll come back to that.
