Hiya!

Before You Buy Gaming Mice (General Technical Terms,Optical vs Laser,Popular Mouse Sensor,Mice Suggestion,Etc)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Shopping for mice is simple.
You find a mouse that suits your budget and preferences.
But why there are so many mice out there with Laser and Optical sensor? High Dpi? And use Different optical and laser sensor such as PMW3310/3360/S9800?
And why is there a gaming mouse anyway? Can we just buy a regular mice and use it for everything?
For casual gaming you might be fine with it but for FPS, especially competitive match, then you will need a gaming mouse.
Why? Because general optical mouse sensor won't be able to keep up with your hand movement and will fail you in the end.
Many pro FPS player move their hand at around 2-3m/s, and because of this they need a sensor that can keep up with their speed and these sensors are usually found in gaming mice.
That being said, that doesn't mean you don't need a gaming mouse if you are just a casual gamer, having a great sensor and features such as tons of buttons for macros or MMO is nice to have.

8.The Best Mouse You Can Buy (in it's own way)

 

Before we begin I must remind you that there's no such things as a perfect mouse, because everyone has their own preferences.
You don't always have to buy the best mouse. It may have the best sensor, the best build quality and the best feature but what if it doesn't suit your hand or grip style? You'll end up feeling uncomfortable when using it for long periods of time.
That's why people tend to find a mouse that is perfect for their hand and grip style and sacrifice sensor performance and features, as long as the sensor is good enough for their needs.
But again, everyone is different! Some people might prefer performance over comfort and vice versa.
So a good mouse is a mouse that will suit your budget, your hand and general preferences, You don't always have to buy the best mouse.
And I apologize if there's any grammatical mistakes because English is not my native language.
And if somehow there are some mistakes in this thread then please correct me and I will update the thread because I am no expert and people make mistakes

1.General Terms

Spoiler

Mouse Acceleration: A mouse with acceleration will often referred as imprecise.
But what is mouse acceleration?
In short is when cursor distance increases if the mouse is move quickly.
Whether its caused by the inconsistency of the sensor in tracking at different speed or using the acceleration features itself.
Using acceleration will make the mouse less precise because each time you whip your mouse at high speed the cursor doesn't stop at where it should be.
But there are individuals who love to use acceleration for some reason.
Some say all sensor has an acceleration but its very very small to the point its not worth mentioning because people wont be able to tell the difference, Even some manufacturer stated that their sensor has ZERO acceleration so lets just agree with them.

Precise? You meant to say accurate? No i meant to say precise, The best way to understand what is precision and accuracy is by looking at this picture below.

Spoiler

precision_accuracy.thumb.png.7065decad7d3970f7a9416e44dabd91f.png

 

Mouse Smoothing: Its a raw input data interpolation to prevent jerky movement in low resolution sensor (its no longer necessary as most mice on the market already has more than 800dpi)

 

Perfect Control Speed: Its how good a sensor can perform when tracking without any acceleration or other kind of interpolation or software tricks its measured in IPS (inches per second)

Sujoy from ESREALITY in his Mouse benchmark of 2007 define PCS as " I define Perfect Control as the top speed up to which the mouse performs exactly as it should "

 

Malfunction Speed: Its the maximum speed of a sensor when track any movement before its loses tracks measured in G Force (20G/30/50G, Etc)
When u exceed your malfunction speed, Anything can happen and usually the sensor will spin out.
Most human cant do more than 20G of acceleration which PMW3310 sensor can handle but some can, Cause there are always that person with their sick 360 no scope :P

 

Polling Rate: Its the rate at which mouse sensor updates it's information regarding it's position or movement measured in Hz

 

Lift Off Distance: Its how high a mice sensor can still track your movement when you lift the mouse from the mat. In FPS game the lower the better because u don't want to mess up your aim when you are trying to reposition the mouse.
Usually anything under 2/1DVD wont mess up with your aim. 1DVD=1.2mm
If you want a high lift off distance get a mice with laser sensor

 

Spin out: Its when Mouse sensor loses track on what you are pointing, This usually happens if you swipe the mouse sideways while coming down at an awkward angle, AKA, a Tilt Slam or when moving your mouse extremely fast, This causes the cursor to go up or down when you're trying to move left or right, or vice versa.
(If you use Tilt Slam technique get a mice with Mercury sensor, Truemove1, Hero sensor, PMW3330 or above)

 

Jitter: Its when mouse sensor having trouble to track a very slow movement (pixel by pixel). A perfect example is when you're trying to draw a straight line but your cursor just going up and down and fail you or it won't respond to a very slow movement at all. (the main issue of laser sensor)
Of course u wont be able to a draw a perfect straight line but the point is a good sensor will be able to pickup a very slow movement (pixel by pixel) without being too jittery or skippy.
When doing pixel by pixel test, If you try to draw a straight line and if the line with the pixels is closely knit together it indicates that is a good sensor but if there's a slight/large gap then that means the sensor is inconsistent in its tracking.
What u want to avoid is that when a mice is able to draw a perfect straight line without enabling mouse prediction that means the sensor has inherent mouse prediction and its bad because it wont translate your muscle to cursor movement accurately.

 

Mouse Prediction a.k.a Drift Control & Angle Snapping : Its a software/prediction mechanism to help draw straight line (I don't recommend enabling it in games because it can mess with your aim.) and some mice in the past has inherent Angle snapping that cannot be turned off (MX518) but that problem no longer exist with modern mouse sensor.

2.Laser Vs Optical

Spoiler

There is always a misunderstanding when people debated over laser vs optical.
Laser sensor is actually an optical, Its just use laser as an illumination.
And most people especially non techies think that laser is better because its more modern, It can achieve more Dpi/Cpi and yes it also can track on your glass window.


Well its true, Laser sensor is indeed more modern, It can achieve more Dpi/Cpi and it can track on any surfaces like glass or white surfaces or any glossy surfaces.
But just because it has more Dpi and can track on glass that doesn't mean its superior than optical.
This is because Dpi/Cpi is the measurement for sensor sensitivity and most people think the more the DPi the better it is.
Dpi has nothing to do with the mouse accuracy.


For example a mouse with high sensitivity the cursor will move farther and low sensitivity will move shorter if you move the mouse at the same distance and both can have the same accuracy.
Yes, Your cursor will move at like 12000Dpi or 400Dpi but it doesn't always move accurately and precisely to where you move it, Sometimes it will jitter, Doesn't stop at where it should be or worse spin out.
Laser sensor will struggle on tracking your mousepad especially cloth because laser sensor track deeper and reveal more details hence gives the sensor unnecessary information and all laser sensor had inconsistent tracking and acceleration issues, it is also struggle on tracking a very slow movement.


That is why Optical is superior because its more accurate, more reliable and precise because they have higher malfunction and perfect control speeds, And they don't have any issues that laser sensor still has.
The only reason to buy a mice with laser sensor is if you want to use it on any surfaces and have a good ergonomic like the Mx Master.
If you are a competitive player don't buy a mice with laser sensor cause it will fail you.
But it might be okay for MMO/MOBA/RTS gamer.


Wait? Are u saying that they don't track well on clothpad? what about hardpad?
Well they track well on hardpad but still inferior than an optical with a clothpad, On top of that as i mentioned above optical has higher perfect control and malfunction speed that is why all FPS mice are using optical and not everyone like the feeling of hardpad surface under their hand.


And for those who think " NO LASER SENSOR IS STILL SUPERIOR THAN OPTICAL WHERE IS YOUR PROOF ANYWAY!!???"

 

Proof they track deeper on clothpad " Quoted from Francois Morier who work for logitech by pc gamer http://www.pcgamer.com/gaming-mouse-myths-busted/ "

Spoiler

Morier: “The laser light has a different wavelength. It is more looking into the structure of the material than the normal LED light, which is more surface illumination. It makes [the laser] more sensitive to the roughness of the surface....The LED is more staying on the top of the surface, so it’s very reproducible. On the top of the surface you have peaks, and it’s only counting the peaks.

“If you look at the cloth pads that are made out of a structure of fibers, the laser is so accurate it ... is showing you the nature of the structure. You don’t care about that. You just want to measure a distance ... The laser will really go down into the surface and then, especially at low speed, will behave very differently. This is the reason you have a big difference between low and high speed.”

Laser-illuminated sensors work extremely well on hard pads, but on soft pads with more surface depth, they’re picking up too much useless information, which leads to discrepancies in how they track at different speeds. This is what most people call “acceleration,” but Morier calls it “resolution error versus speed.” (More on that in a second).

So how much difference is there between optical and laser-illuminated sensors, ultimately? According to Morier, laser-illuminated sensors have a 5-6 percent variation in tracking at different speeds. For the best optical sensors, that number is below 1 percent.

Proof they had inconsistent tracking and acceleration issues "Quoted from Chris pate and morior from the same article"

Spoiler

Pate: “Acceleration as it’s understood by people on the internet, particularly as it’s applied to a certain family of laser-illuminated sensors, is actually an issue with accuracy relative to the speed that the mouse is being moved. It’s not that the mouse has an inherent amount of acceleration in a positive or negative direction. What it has is a difficulty to make the cursor travel the same distance if you move the mouse the same physical distance at different speeds. It’s real difficult to kind of parse everything that I just said, and it’s real easy to say ‘laser has acceleration.’”

François Morier calls acceleration “resolution error versus speed,” but it’s important to note that in this context, “resolution” has nothing to do with image quality (don’t be thinking 1080p vs. 4K, etc).

Morier: “Resolution to me, means the translation between your hand movement and the distance you cover on the screen. It’s just a factor of relation between, I move one inch, how many pixels I’ve covered on the screen. This is the resolution.”

It’s not that the mouse cursor or sensor is accelerating when you move the mouse different speeds. The problem is there’s a discrepancy between the data the mouse is reading at those different speeds. Describing why that happens is pretty complicated, and we’ll delve into the really technical stuff in the next myth, about DPI. But on the high level, resolution error versus speed happens due to mouse sensors picking up too much noise in their image as they scan the mousing surface. As you may remember from the last myth, this is more common in laser-illuminated mice.

More proof

Spoiler

5a5c491998103_smithgoogle.JPG.687a12db38e3cc5e11377993debb486d.JPG

You can find tons of proof on why optical is superior with that thing.

 

3.Dpi/Cpi

Spoiler

Stands for Dot per inch or Count per inch
Its the measurement of how sensitive the mouse sensor is.
The higher the Dpi/Cpi the farther the cursor will moves on your screen when you move your mouse and vice versa.


Its the resolution of the sensor and usually you won't need more than 4000dpi unless you are using idk triple 8k monitor or something or maybe you are a really really high sensitivity player.
It has nothing to do with the mouse accuracy and many companies especially "GAMING" companies take advantage from this misunderstanding and often boost their mice DPi/Cpi whether by using laser sensor or software tricks,I am sure you often see a big bold statement on the box like "this mouse can achieve 12.000 DPI now buy it will ya?"
Having a ridiculously high dpi is useless as it will be bottlenecked by your monitor and I mean who use 12k dpi while gaming or in a desktop? If you do then try not get drowned in the pool of your own blood in games and good luck on trying to click that ICON on your desktop

4.What Makes a Good Gaming Mouse?

Spoiler

In this section i'll give you some idea on what makes a good gaming mouse based on the games genre rather than a general advice.
But first, I am not a hardcore MOBA/RTS/MMO player i mainly play FPS mostly non competitive but i do play some competitive match sometimes so if i happen to make some mistakes on this section, Please feel free to correct me and i will update the thread.

 

-What makes a good FPS mouse?

Spoiler

I am sure most of you already know the answer and that is the sensor.
Sensor is the #1 Priority on choosing a mouse for FPS, But most gaming sensor are so overkill nowadays with 12k Cpi and 50G of acceleration which no human on earth would be able to max out the sensor and most people can't really tell the difference between a mid-range sensor such as PMW3330 vs high end sensor such as PMW3360 which is strange because PMW3330 is basically a cutdown version of PMW3360 and in theory it should give us half of the performance of the 3360 Sensor.


Logitech G PRO and G102/203 is the best example for this, The G PRO and G102/203 have the same shape but use different sensor PMW3360 on the G PRO and MERCURY on the G102/203 and they perform very similar with G102/203 being 50% cheaper.
So in a nutshell as long it has a good sensor and its good enough for you then don't bother with it and prioritize more on shape,weight and button.

 

Now the weight, Most FPS player prefer a light mouse preferably under 100Grams because its easier to move and aim with it.
Heavy mice will slow you down but allowing you to have more control even though you are using speed mat but of course there are individuals who are no bothered by the weight.


A good FPS mice will also have a safe shape meaning it won't force your finger position into certain places and will suits the hand of most people, A perfect example is Zowie Mice because most of them didn't have any sharp edges nor weird gaming lamborghini aesthetic or pinky finger rest.
And a good example for unsafe mice is the logitech G302/303 with it's weird diamond shape and mionix castor with it's pinky rest.
But not all mice with gaming aesthetic will be uncomfortable to use, G502 and G900 for example, Are loved by many.

 

And last is the button, For FPS you usually just going to need 3 extra button that is 2 side button and 1 dpi switch.
Hey what about sniper button? its a nice to have although most people won't be using it especially for competitive games.

-What makes a good MOBA mouse?

Spoiler

For MOBA you don't really need tons of button but admit it that it is convenient to impose a spell without even touching the keyboard, Its not a must though more like nice to have.
And not only that the button has to be light to press and have a long lifespan because you will be clicking them a LOT, But it is also must have a good tactile feedback.
The other factor is that make sure the material the mouse is made of does not allow your palms to get sweaty and it must have a good ergonomic as well.

 

Although most MOBA player prefer smaller mice, I think its just a matter of personal preferences based on how big their hand is.

And last is the DPI, MOBA player will often use HIGH dpi so they don't have to move their mouse around too far. It's not a big issue because most gaming mice has more than 4000dpi anyway, Just make sure it has a good sensor that has no noticeable acceleration and can actually achieve more than 4000 dpi without nasty software interpolation because MOBA player need to perform fast and accurate click, So a good sensor is a must but it doesn't have to be a top optical, Any decent laser/optical would do just fine.

And IMO a good FPS mice is a good moba mice.

-What makes a good RTS mouse

Spoiler

Nothing,A good FPS mice or any all around gaming mice is a good RTS mice.

-What makes a good MMO mouse

Spoiler

Aside from it must have plenty of button for swapping spells and skills, A good MMO mice must also have a good ergonomic because you will 100% spend a lot of time on that genre.

Usually most MMO player prefer larger mice such as Roccat Nyth/Corsair Scimitar because its more comfortable to use for long gaming sessions.

 

Did i mentioned the button? Right, MMO mice must have a lot of button for macros and its must be well placed and easy to reach so you should be able to tell the side buttons apart without looking at them.

It is also must have a good software that would allow you to swap between profiles on the fly and offer decent number of configuration options.
And finally the sensor, For MMO you don't really need a top optical sensor even decent laser sensor will be fine because MMO its a slow paced games.

 

5.Popular Gaming Mice Sensor (Pros and cons)

Spoiler

Just because its labeled as "GAMING" that doesn't mean its an overpriced product like any other gaming product or just act as a gimmick.

I mean sure gaming mice has it's gimmick but it also has the best,the most accurate and precise sensor.

And there are sooo many mice sensor out there but i am just going to cover only the most popular.

 

-Starting with PMW3310 sensor.

Specs :

Spoiler

Resolution : 5000

Speed/Acceleration : 130ips/30g

Illumination : IR LED

PMW3310 is a budget oriented sensor often found within budget entry level mice.

It has an acceleration but its so small and consistent you probably wont be able to tell the difference when using it.

It has high LOD about 2mm but its not a big issues although some mice will offer an option to adjust the LOD.

It has issues with Tilt slam and it can spin out if u manage to move the mouse extremely fast and it can get jittery too but its rarely happen and idk why.

 

-PMW3330

Specs:

Spoiler

Resolution : 7200cpi

Speed/Acceleration : 150ips/30g

Illumination : Integrated IR LED

Its a mid-range sensor basically a cutdown version of PMW3360

Its just have lower dpi,lower IPS and lower malfunction speed.

 

-PMW3360

Specs:

Spoiler

Resolution : 12000cpi

Speed/Acceleration : 250ips/50g

Illumination : Integrated IR LED

Its a high end sensor often found in expensive gaming mice although some mice offer PMW3360 sensor with cheaper price like nixeus revel but of course they will sacrifice features and build quality.

Its the best OPTICAL sensor ever made, It has zero acceleration,it won't jitter,it had no issues with tilt slam and it won't spin out no matter how fast you can move your mouse.

It often customized and used by gaming companies like Logitech with their PMW3366,Roccat PMW3361,Corsair PMW3367,Steelseries TrueMove3,Etc

 

-SDNS3988

Specs:

Spoiler

Resolution : 6400cpi

Speed/Acceleration : 200ips/50g

Illumination : IR LED

A high end optical sensor although from the specs it seems to be inferior than PMW3360.

But its still a popular sensor nonetheless, It used by gaming companies like asus with their gladius,corsair with their scimitar,and razer with their deathadder 4G that is before they use customized 3989 for their Deathadder Chroma.

It has no issues with tilt slam,it can't spin out at high speed,it has no acceleration and it does'nt jitter.

 

-ADNS9800

Specs:

Spoiler

Resolution : 8200

Speed/Acceleration : 150ips/30g

Illumination : LASER

The most popular Laser sensor ever made (basically 9500 with more Cpi) however it also popular for having large inconsistent acceleration that is why competitive fps player hate laser sensor.

But if you are a looking for a sensor that can track on glass for gaming (wut?) your only best option is ADNS9800.

The sensor can get jittery or wont respond at all if you move your mouse very slowly and it can spin out at both high speed and tilt slam.

It used by Logitech for their G500s,600 and 700s and razer for their taipan and Ouborobo and other gaming company such as a4tech,rapoo,corsair,roccat,etc

 

-HERO Sensor

Now AFAIK HERO sensor is not made by pixart but i think it deserve to be mentioned.

HERO stands for High Efficient Rated Optical, Logitech claimed that it perform par with the legendary PMW3360 but its more like a better version of the PMW3310 because the sensor can spin out by tilting and slamming it although its very hard to spin out the sensor.

This sensor is used for their G603 Wireless mouse because the purpose of this sensor is to preserve battery life.

I really hope that logitech will use this HERO sensor for their future wireless mice hmmm G502 wireless with HERO sensor?

 

-MERCURY Sensor

A sensor used by logitech for their G102 and G203 mouse.

I am surprised by how well this sensor perform especially for the given price.

Its basically a PMW3330 because it had no issues with tilt slam,no jitter and can't spin out at high speed.

Sadly afaik its only available on the G102/G203.

 

-Truemove1

Has similar performance as MERCURY sensor and only available on the Rival 110 Mouse.

 

PRO TIPS : As long it has a good sensor and its good enough for you and you didn't use tilt slam technique then don't bother with the sensor because most of them are overkill for human to ever fully max out the sensor just prioritize more on shape,size,buttons,features and weight.

If you are an FPS player your no1 priority is the sensor and then the shape,weight and finally button.

If you are an MMO/MOBA/RTS prioritize more on the button,shape,ergonomic and finally the sensor.

6.What To Look and What To Ignore?

Spoiler

What to look :

1.Sensor

2.Shape (personal preferences)

3.Weight (personal preferences)

4.Size (personal preferences)

5.Features (personal preferences)

6.Button (how many)

7.Build Quality

What to ignore :

1.Dpi/Cpi (More than 4000Dpi is unecessary)

2.Stupid unnecessary gimmick thats just going to add extra cost like heart rate detector,vibration and Oled Display

3.Sponsored or affiliated Reviews

4.Boot Licking Pro Player Commenting on products

 

7.Mice Suggestion

Spoiler

The hand size is a rough guide and just because it says FPS that doesn't mean u can't use it for other games the same goes for the grip style.

The only mice i have tried in my whole life are Razer Deathadder chroma/elite,Logitech G402/G502,Mionix Castor,MX518,G102/203,Roccat Tyon and Rival 300.

So no i don't own or have tried all mice in this suggestion section.

I gathered all the info i can get from google like the official website and put it in here.

Mouse pic is in the spoiler and prepare for a lot of spoiler inside a spoiler.

A new ambidextrous mice from razer with top razer optical sensor and razer mechanical switches made by omron,the switch its light making it good for jitter clicking.

The shape however is unsafe.

And dont get the Wireless version because it uses laser sensor which is jittery,can spin out with tilt slam technique and high speed movement.

 

-Razer Deathadder Elite [FPS/MOBA/Palm/Fingertip]

Spoiler

Button   : 2 Side and 2 Dpi shift

Weight  : 98Grams

Design : Right handed

Cable   : Braided

Games : FPS/MOBA

I knew what u were thinking but just because its says Razer doesnt mean its overpriced piece of garbage,Deathadder is by far the most popular large fps mice on the planet, if not the best selling mice ever and for good reason.

It uses PMW3389 sensor which perform par with PMW3360,It has good build quality,light button and good ergonomic also it only has the necessary features and button for FPS.

 

-Razer Basilisk [FPS/MOBA/RTS/All grip]

Spoiler

Weight  : 109Grams

Design : Right handed

Cable   : Braided

Games : FPS/MOBA/RTS

The best All around gaming mouse rivaling the G502 By Logitech with less button.

This mouse has 2 awesome gimmick that is a removable sniper button (it comes with 3 button) and Adjustable Scroll wheel tensioning system that lets you adjust the resistance of the scroll wheel from below.
Its a good FPS mouse although many FPS player prefer a mouse under 100Grams because its easier to move and aim with it,But again its all about personal preferences.
Bottom line it is a good mouse, it has a top optical sensor and good ergonomic for people with large hand but not everyone like the thumbrest so it might not suit everyone.

LOGITECH

We are looking at the future with HERO sensor.

It perform par with PMW3330 (yes not 3360 Logitech can flame me all they want) while being more efficient.

But if only they use built in rechargeable battery instead of AA to make this mouse lighter it would be great for FPS although u can use 1 battery and it will work just fine.

The build quality is not as solid as its bigger brother the G703 but its not a big deal.

Its a great wireless mouse for people who are concerned about battery life.

TLDR is a dam good mouse if u can find a good deal for it like for $30-35USD.

But i don't recommend it if you are a serious gamer.

If you dont care about the sensor then this is a soild mouse as an alternative to the G502.

Design  : Right handed

Cable   : Braided

Games : FPS

A new mice from steelseries with the new Truemove3+ optical sensor and 1 dedicated sensor to help reduce LOD.

So whats thats all about? well the new Truemove3+ has 350IPS which is so unnecessary as PMW3330 is already overkill.

And the 0.5mm lift off distance is also just act as a gimmick cause it wont gives u any advantages in games.

LOD under 1 DVD (1.2mm) wont gives u any noticeable movement when u reposition the mice and most high end gaming mice has LOD under 1 DVD.

I mean its just 0.7mm differences its less than 1mm lol

In other word dont bother with the New sensor and LOD gimmick and prioritize more on the shape and weight for this mouse.

Hold on though just because it has gimmick this mouse is actually pretty good according to a review by RJN.

The downside is that its a bit pricey around 70-80 USD

This is a heavy mice, Too heavy for it's size and it isn't the most comfortable either especially for aiming in FPS.
As i said this mouse is not a gaming mouse, More like a mouse for people who need something small to go along with their laptop and they love razer for some reason because u can get the MX ANYWHERE and its more comfortable than this. But again its all about personal preferences.

8.The Best Mouse You Can Buy (in it's own way)

BEST LARGE WIRED OPTICAL MICE

Spoiler

1# LOGITECH G502

Its without a doubt the best wired optical mice on the market.

G502 has the best features combined with amazing PMW3366 sensor making it the best all around gaming mice on the market today.

 

#2 Steelseries Rival 600

Despite its sensor and Lod gimmick.

I admit that this mice should be on the list.

But it seems a bit overpriced so if u are okay with it then this mouse wont disappoint.

 

3# Razer Deathadder Elite

If u are looking for an alternative for the G502 or Rival 600 with less button and cheaper price then u wont regret getting the elite.

The 3389 is razer own version of 3360 and it perform very similar even some says its more responsive.

It has only the necessary button for FPS player and with a safe and comfortable shape that makes the deathadder a great FPS mice for people with large hand.

 

BEST WIRELESS MICE

Spoiler

 

1# LOGITECH G900/G903

Logitech continue to amaze us by releasing the G900.

It has almost the same features as the G502 but with ambidextrous design,modular side button,mechanical pivot button and Wireless capabilities.

 

2# Roccat Leadr

Roccat tyon is a great mice but sadly because it uses laser sensor that made a lot of people avoid this mouse.

So roccat respond is by releasing the Leadr.

A wireless version of roccat tyon with PMW3361 optical sensor.

But the leadr is a bit pricey and the battery life arent that good either around 2days for gaming with the LED ON.

But it has lots of buttons making it good for MMO.

 

BEST WIRELESS MICE UNDER $100

Spoiler

 

1# LOGITECH G403/G703

If your budget is below $100 then G403/G703 is the best wireless mice you can get.

Of course it doesnt have the same features as the G900/G502.

Its a simple mice with only 2 side button and 1 dpi switch.

But it has PMW3366 sensor,Good button and Good build quality.

 

2# LOGITECH G603

The HERO sensor is by far the best sensor for wireless mice on the market.

It perform great and much more efficient.

The only downside of this mouse is the use of AA batteries.

 

 

BEST SIMPLE LIGHT MICE WITH GREAT SENSOR

Spoiler

1# FinalMouse UltraLight Pro

67 grams with PMW3360, Need we say more?

 

2# LOGITECH G PRO

There's not much to say about this mice except the simplicity.

It only has the necessary button 2 side button and 1 dpi switch with top logitech PMW3366 optical sensor and only weight 85Grams making it great for FPS player who are tired of seeing gaming companies keep on making heavy mice.

 

3# Steelseries Rival 310

With truemove 3 optical sensor,weighted under 100grams and with only the necessary button this mouse should be on this list.

 

4# Dream machine dm1 pro s & Nixeus Revel

Weighted around 85Grams,PMW3360 Sensor,Omron switches and safe shape this mouse won't disappoint especially for FPS gamer.

 

5# Zowie FK1/2

Weighted around 85Grams with PMW3310 sensor.

If u don't mind the ambidextrous design and u don't use tilt slam.

 

6# Zowie ZA12/13

Weighted 85Grams (ZA12) and 80Grams (ZA13) With PMW3310 and again just like the FK only get this mouse If u don't mind the ambidextrous design and u don't use tilt slam.

 

BEST BUDGET GAMING MICE

Spoiler

 

1# LOGITECH G102/203

Of course ;) 

If u are on the market for the G PRO i'd say just get the G102/203 as the sensor perform very similar.

 

2# STEELSERIES RIVAL 110

The Truemove1 perform as good as mercury so if you like steelseries for some reason or if G102/203 is not available on your country then you won't regret getting this mouse.

 

BEST MMO MICE

Spoiler

1# Corsair Scimitar Pro RGB

With 12 adjustable Side button,Great build quality as expected from corsair and Top end Corsair PMW3367 sensor there's no better MMO mice than this.

Sadly the button are not modular so u need to adjust your thumb and get used to it.

But it has PMW3367 sensor which is great even for FPS if u dont mind the shape and weight of course.

 

2# Roccat Nyth

12 side button and modular right grip with a ring finger rest,comfortable shape especially for a large hand,Roccat nyth is an alternative for the scimitar.

This mouse use Laser sensor which is not a big deal for MMO and it can track on any surfaces.

Just dont use it for FPS especially competitive match.

 

3# Roccat Leadr

If u don't mind the price this mice is the best wireless mmo mice u can get.

It has tons of buttons scattered around the mice and it equip with PMW3361 sensor.

This mice is also great for competitive FPS because the shape is not too bulky but the weight is a bit heavy not a huge problem for those who like heavy mice.

This is a solid mouse,I like how roccat choose the material for the mouse.

And compared to other mice this one looks more premium.

 

4# Steelseries Rival 500

I dont really like the material they use for the mice its just looks cheap.

But it is a good MMO mice that is also good for fps if u dont mind the weight and button.

what is the opinion on trackballs? i personally looked into them because conventional mice cause some weird wrist pain for me 

A friend on this forum asked the same question.

Trackball mice such as logitech trackman marble or any other trackball mice are for those who has that issues.

They are not easy to use at first till u get used to it.

The problem with trackball mice is that most of them are gigantic and doesnt have a good ergonomic but it will reduce the pain cause u dont have to move your hand only ur finger.

The only popular trackball mice i know is the logitech trackman marble and MX Ergo.

They often used by games developers and people who has wrist pain from using general mice.

 

If u have that problem u can try buying a mousepad that has a wrist rest on it or buy a separate wrist rest like this and it might help

Corsair mice are okay but they have an odd shape and most of them are heavy.

the only mice that has a standard shape from corsair is the Glaive.

Other than that they make a great solid mice.

Yes but i think u wont be comfortable with it cause its a small mice with a weird diamond shape.

Its actually the shape that kept everyone from buying the mouse but there are individuals of course who love the shape.

the tittle of this post is grammatically wrong -

it reads " Before you buy a gaming mice " a is singular so the post presumes you are buy 1 mouse but its titled " a " gaming mice ??? mice is plural

the post should read -
