 Our pick of the 3 Best gaming mouse you can buy this year

Only when the game enters the most intense part can you understand the difference between a gaming mouse and a normal mouse. Do you agree?

There are many kinds of gaming mice on the market, which brings trouble to our choices. Many people don’t know what kind of gaming mouse is right for them. That’s why we made this list. If you’re worrying about it, go ahead and read on.

1. Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless

  • CPI : 16,000
  • Sensor : Optical
  • Interface : USB / 2.4GHz wireless
  • Buttons : 11
  • Ergonomic : Right-handed
  • Weight : 114 g (4.02 oz)

The original G502 has long been a classic, a favorite in circles that prize durability, accuracy, and high performance from their pointers. The refresh not only honors that legacy but actually improves upon it, with iterative but substantive changes that elevate a beloved classic to dizzying new heights.

Now packing Logitech’s reliable 16K HERO sensor, and with a 7 gram reduction in weight over its predecessor, the G502 Lightspeed is also very forward looking by way of it’s compatibility with the PowerPlay charging mat. The mat not only charges the mouse on the fly but will actually recognize it and pair it with your PC without requiring the use of a USB dongle. The G502 is also host to a number of other small quality of life features that push it ahead of its competition, like modular weights that can be added or removed to find the perfect hand feel, and a scroll wheel that can be locked to toggle through steps or unlocked to spin freely. It’s one of the best wireless mice on the market, and priced accordingly, but if you have the cash to spare, the G502 is worth every penny.

2. Razer Deathadder Elite

  • CPI : 16,000
  • Sensor : Optical
  • Interface : USB
  • Buttons : 6
  • Ergonomic : Right-handed
  • Weight : 105 g (0.23 lbs)

The Razer Deathadder has an all-around fantastic shape for all sorts of grips and hand sizes, and I’ve spent hundreds of hours playing games, using Photoshop, and browsing the Internet with it. Despite years of iterations, Razer never messes with the Deathadder’s shape. There’s no reason to.

The Deathadder Elite uses a 16,000 CPI optical sensor, but big numbers don’t necessarily mean quality. Here’s the important bit: for the Elite Razer chose a sensor based on the PMW-3389 developed by sensor company Pixart in collaboration with Logitech, which is easily one of the best mouse sensors available with 99.4% resolution accuracy and a 450 IPS rating. Razer’s implementation should deliver flawless tracking, even if you move the mouse as fast as you can.

For the majority of games and gamers, the Deathadder Elite is an amazing mouse. It’s simple where it should be, with two perfectly placed, generously sized thumb buttons, has a great optical mouse sensor that will work on both hard and cloth pads, and has the ultimate body shape for a claw or hybrid claw/palm grip.

3. Corsair Ironclaw RGB

  • CPI : 18,000
  • Sensor : Optical
  • Interface : USB
  • Buttons : 7
  • Ergonomic : Right-handed
  • Weight : 105 g (3.7 oz)

The Ironclaw is the best mouse we’ve tested for gamers with larger hands. While its design encompasses a strange blend of materials, from smooth matte plastic on the buttons to the diamond print, grippy rubber sides, to the unique, wavy rubber on the scroll wheel, each conforms well to its function on the mouse. Instead of a single cohesive material, Corsair has designated one to suit each panel individually, which adds to the excellent overall fit of the mouse to make it feel really cozy gliding over your mouse pad. It’s domed and curved fit perfectly in the palm of right-handed gamers, and is one of the best feeling mice to grip I’ve ever tested.

It does feel a bit weighty, particularly for a wireless mouse that doesn’t require a discrete battery, and unfortunately doesn’t offer customizable weights. While that means the Ironclaw feels just a hair more cumbersome than other, lighter wired mice, it also makes the mouse feel more significant and substantial. The RGB lighting is slick and understated, exactly the way I like it, and the unit can be fully customized through Corsair’s iCue software, including the option to calibrate your mouse to the surface on which you’re using it. While iCue isn’t the most intuitive software suite I’ve ever used, it does offer a comprehensive set of customization options.
