If you already own one of the best gaming PCs, it’s tempting to grab the cheapest mouse you can find at your local big box store. But this isn’t a wise move.
Instead, you need to put the same level of care and attention into picking a good gaming mouse as you do with the bigger, more expensive purchases. We truly believe that everything attached to your rig should be of comparable quality.
You should keep an eye open for any gaming mouse that can balance price and performance, while packing some unique features. There’s an age-old myth that the most expensive mouse on the shelf is going to be the best one, but that’s just not true. Just take a look at the SteelSeries Sensei 310: at less than the price of a new AAA game, it has all the performance you could ask for. In short, if you spend decently on your complete gaming PC setup, you should definitely consider to spend a decent amount on your gaming mouse as well. Nope, we are not asking you to empty your entire pocket or spend your complete bank balance, we are just asking you to get a good gaming mouse to enhance your gaming experience.
So, we gathered together the best gaming in year 2019. We have to tested them personally but we have compiled a list of all the mice we see fit in year 2019, based in user experience and general reviews. No matter what kind of games you’re into, you’ll find the best gaming mouse for your needs right here on this list.
The following list has been categorized into three tiers, based on your budget. You can opt between the High end tier, budget friendly tier & low end tier mice.
Note: Please keep a note that we have not compromised the quality. All mice will be the top notch mice in their respective categories, they have just been discriminated on the basis of price.
High End Tier ( $80 & Above )
1. SteelSeries Rival 710
DPI: 12,000 | Features: OLED display, customizable weight, 60-million click mechanical switches, Haptic engine, RGB lighting
When it comes to the best gaming mice, features, balance and performance all have to be there in equal measure. That’s why the SteelSeries Rival 710 easily tops our list. This heavyweight gaming mouse is a bit expensive, but when you weigh that against the customizable OLED display, haptic feedback – great for you MOBA players – and excellent build quality, the SteelSeries Rival 710 is easily worth the price. And, the kicker? Everything is modular, even down to the sensor, so you never have to feel like you’re missing out on the latest tech.
In this list,, this mouse is the most expensive one and this is one out class choice for a gamer working on a high end tier.
DPI: 12,000 | Features: Wireless Charging via Logitech Powerplay mouse mat, upto 32 hours of battery life, PWM3366 Optical Sensor, LightSpeed Wireless Technology
Undeterred by years of ridicule for their comparatively higher latency, the Logitech G900 of yesteryear proved once and for all that wireless gaming mice don’t have to suck. Though it’s merely a slight upgrade to that model, the Logitech G903 only reassures us of that conviction. Gracing a slightly altered G900 design with Logitech’s on PowerPlay mouse pad that doubles as a wireless charger, the Logitech G903 is a pricey, yet rewarding investment.
3. Logitech G502 Lightspeed Wireless
DPI: 16,000 | Sensor: Optical | Interface: USB / 2.4GHz wireless | Buttons: 11 | Ergonomic: Right-handed
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.
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.
Budget Friendly Tier ( $40 – $70 )
- Razer Naga Trinity
DPI: 16,000 | Features: Interchangeable side plates, Razer chroma support, 1000Hz Ultrapolling
Razer’s Naga mice have always been fan favorites with the MMO community, but the manufacturer didn’t just stop there. With the Naga Trinity, you get 3 easily swappable side plates, so that you can change your mouse to fit the game you’re playing. Add in the insane 16,000 DPI sensor and Razer Chroma RGB lighting, and you’ll top the DPS meters in style. I am personally a fan of Razer products, specially the mice, because they are nothing but the best.
2. Steelseries Sensei 310
DPI: 12,000 | Features: Optical Sensor, Ambidextrous Mouse Design
Almost everything is new except the Sensei’s ambidextrous shape, and that’s exactly how it should be. Thanks to a new plastic, the Sensei is grippier and can shrug off a sweaty palm. And Steelseries is using its own custom version of one of the best gaming sensors around, ensuring the Sensei 310 won’t suffer from any tracking issues.
The Sensei 310 fits in your hand just like the old Sensei, and is a great shape for either left- or right-handed gamers looking for a midsized ambidextrous mouse. That means it has a pair of identical thumb buttons on the left and the right, a common issue for ambidextrous mice.
3. HyperX PulseFire Surge
DPI: 16,000 | Features: RGB Light Ring, 50 million click-rated Omron switches
If you find yourself snickering at some of the ridiculous gaming mice available in 2019, you should take a look at the HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB. Featuring extremely reliable Omron switches and gorgeous RGB lighting – not to mention its unbelievable 16,000 DPI sensor – you’re getting one of the best gaming mice for a great price. Plus, it’ll fit into any office, at least once you turn down the lighting effects.
Low End Tier ( $15 – $40 )
1. Iogear Fokus 2
DPI: 12,000 | Features: Optical Sensor, USB Interface, Ambidextrous Ergonomic Design
The Iogear Fokus 2 is a 130 gram monster (not counting the cable), and an RGB spectacle of light when activated and appropriately programmed in the (excellent) Kaliber Gaming software that accompanies it. While it’s aesthetic design is a bit divisive (it’s one of the flashier gaming mice on our list), it’s performance is unimpeachable, and if you’re the sort who prefers a weightier, solid mouse, the Fokus 2 is a fantastic option.
2.Cooler Master MasterMouse MM520
DPI: 12,000 | Features: Customized for claw grip, Customizable DPI settings, Three-zone RGB lighting
If you need one of the best gaming mice, but are looking to save some cash at the same time – the Cooler Master MasterMouse MM520 might be what you’re looking for. It won’t win any beauty contests, but packing quality Omron switches and a reasonably sensitive sensor capable of up to 12,000 DPI, it’s easy to look past the unappealing design – especially if you use a claw grip. The Cooler Master is relatively new in gaming peripherals industry but of course, they are making excellent products without any compromise on the quality.
3. Logitech G203 Prodigy
DPI: 8,000 | Features: Optical Sensor, | 6 buttons right handed ergonomic design
You can find a lot of decent, no-name brand gaming mice on Amazon for less than $20, but it’s worth spending just a little more for the Logitech G203 Prodigy (also called the G102 in some regions). With this mouse you get Logitech’s fantastic, reliable build quality, good gaming driver software, and a tried-and-true mouse shape. Since its popular G100s years ago, Logitech has released several mice with a nearly identical small, almost-ambidextrous body, and it remains a comfortable mouse great for the active grip of FPS or MOBA players. And the G203 is damn cheap.
Which Mouse is Good For You?
Well, this question can only be answered by the person who needs a mouse. All those mice listed above are the best mice we see fit in year 2019. However, the personal preference of each gamer can not be taken into consideration. So, it is up to you to see what features you need into a gaming mouse and which mouse will suit you the best.
In the above stated mice, all of them are the best in class in their respective category. If you are working on a budget or if you do not want to spend much on a gaming mouse, but still you want performance, then the budget tier & low end tier are your best bet. However, if you are a hardcore gamer and a hardware enthusiast and never settle on anything but the best, then you are welcome to try the high end tier mice by any means.
