How to choose a Gaming Mouse (2017 Guide)



How to Pick a Good Gaming Mouse

Steps

  1. Figure out how you hold your mouse; this will be important for later.There are 3 basic types of grips people use:
    • Palm grip: This is how most people hold their mouse. Your entire hand lies flat on the mouse.
    • Claw grip: This one is like the palm grip, but characterized by arched fingers in the shape of a claw.
    • Fingertip grip: The entire mouse is held with just your fingertips, the palm won't touch the mouse.
  2. Find out how large the mouse's movements are.Find your perfect sensitivity. DPI is basically how mouse sensitive is. All the better gaming mice (Razer, Corsair, Roccat, Logitech) have a mouse tuning software, so set your DPI to your sweet spot.
  3. Think about what kind of games you play.Do you mainly play FPS games? RTS? MMO? Most mice cater to FPS games, but there are also mice that have more buttons and macros designed for RTS games and MMO's.
  4. Pay attention to the pictures.Look at the two main buttons. If they don't look distinguished and the mouse looks rather large, it's probably a palm-grip mouse. If the two main buttons are clearly indented or visible in some way and the mouse is kind of small, it's meant for finger and claw-grip players.
  5. Read user reviews.Once you find a mouse you like be sure to check the user reviews, as well as some other tech websites. Weigh all the advantages against the disadvantages
  6. Purchase the mouse that is right for you.When you find one that fits your needs and has good reviews, buy it. Remember, the more complicated the mouse is (having lots of side keys, 16000 DPI, etc), the more advanced it is. It also means it may be hard to get used to, as those are made for eSports or pro gamers. You may want to consider buying a mouse pad too, if you don't already have one.

    Good gaming mouses are ones that have good sensors. I recommend the Razer Deathadder for a cheap but exceptional mouse. If you want a topnotch mouse, Razer Mamba is a good choice, although a little pricey, and is worth the money you spend.
    Thanks!

  • If the mouse has a laser sensor instead of an optical one, check the user reviews and see if people are complaining about it not tracking well. Some laser mice don't work too well.
  • Typically, it is a good idea to avoid wireless mice. They are generally less responsive than wired ones. Only buy a wireless mouse if you have a good reason for it.
