Tom's Guide tests about 30 mice per year, which enables us to recommend with confidence which mouse is better. If you want a mouse that can play anything and everything, the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum ($80 MSRP) is about as good as it gets. With well-spaced buttons, a comfortable design and top-of-the-line software, the Proteus Spectrum is, hands-down, the best all-around gaming mouse on the market. If you don't want to spend quite so much money, the HyperX Pulsefire costs less than $50, and delivers excellent performance with no frills.
