We tested 9 gaming mice. Turns out they're all decent, but manufacturers target different types of gamers.
The mouse is the most prominent tool in every PC gamer's pocket—one that can make or break the way we interact with virtual worlds. True gaming mice are the most advanced mice available on the planet and are built with three purposes in mind: speed, sensitivity, and comfort. Of the nine mice we tested for this roundup, each is uniquely tuned for a specific type of gamer.
We tested four types of mice geared for either standard gaming, MMOG (massively multiplayer online games) titles (explained below), wireless gaming, and Bluetooth connections.
Based on the mice we tested, it’s safe to say that anyone interested in a high-quality mouse should consider a gaming mouse. These mice are excellent for a multitude of other applications, from simple web-browsing to Photoshop and beyond.
We evaluated each one for gaming performance, overall non-gaming performance, comfort, features, and price. Gaming and non-gaming performance mean how well each mouse performed for various applications. Comfort measures the overall ergonomic factors. We used each one over several weeks, hours at a time. The features rating evaluates drivers, functionality, and extras that each mouse has. Price compares the mice to each other’s retail and current selling price, as well as older gaming mice.
All scores are added up and reflect the final overall score.
