A gaming mouse is the second elementary tool of the PC gamer and must have a very robust design – similar to gaming keyboards and gaming headsets.
This is because gaming mice have to withstand a very high number of clicks, which are often performed in quick succession. The sensor has to be extremely reliable and precise in order to react immediately to the smallest movements and sudden changes in direction. Added to this are convenience features like programmable buttons to trigger entire click sequences or command combinations at the touch of a button.
Razer Viper Ultimate
The packaging of the Razer Viper Ultimate is already a sign of high quality. However, the mouse, which was developed for e-sportsmen, also scores in the practical test and can be used well by both left- and right-handed users. The extremely sensitive sensor and the reliable wireless connection ensure precise navigation. Furthermore, the included charging station not only looks good on the desk, but also serves as a practical holder for the mouse. We still have to mention the high-quality material, which ensures a good grip of the hand on the mouse even in tense situations – clearly our test winner.
Logitech G Pro Wireless
Our former test winner is the Logitech G Pro Wireless and now becomes an “Also good” recommendation. The manufacturer developed the model together with e-sportsmen in order to launch a mouse that meets the high demands of professional gamers. The equipment includes a wireless or wired connection to the PC, the workmanship is impeccable and the weight is well under 100 grams. In addition, the mouse also masters wireless charging via Logitech’s Powerplay technology. However, the mouse alone is quite expensive. Despite its advanced age, you still have to dig a bit deeper into your pocket.
Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite
The Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite is aimed at MMORPG fans and all those who want to trigger many commands directly with the mouse without having to go into wild click orgies. The manufacturer has placed a whole 17 buttons on this mouse, which can also be freely programmed. However, using the mouse requires a bit of practice, since the thumb in particular should hover freely next to the mouse so that an action isn’t triggered by mistake. Despite the many buttons, the RGB Elite lies well in the hand and can be navigated with millimeter precision. Now you just have to remember which function is on which button.
SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless
If you simply want a hevorragende, wireless and affordable gaming mouse, you should definitely take a look at the SteelSeries Rival 3 Wireless. The mouse is top-notch and crafted with high-quality materials, is powered by up to two AAA batteries that last a long time, and focuses on the essentials: High performance without the bells and whistles.
