The right mouse can make the difference between winning and losing. Gamers serious about their peripherals look for top-notch performance, comfortable ergonomics, and features that optimize their gaming experience. Great mice come in all shapes, sizes, and weights; many of these factors will come down to personal preference.
Some mice are specifically designed for FPS or MOBAs, whereas some try to strike a middle ground. To properly evaluate each mouse in this review roundup, I used each one in a competitive match of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) and Heroes of the Storm (HOTS). I installed the appropriate software and tinkered with programmable buttons for the in-game tests. To keep things consistent, I also used a Steelseries QCK cloth mouse pad for all of my tests. I then critiqued each mouse in three aspects: ergonomics, performance, and value.
I also intend to update this story as we get our hands on additional mice and new iterations of current models.
