Gamer’s Choice: The best mouse options for your budget

Gamers Choice: The best mouse options for your budget

DJuan Hall, Staff Writer

With esports getting bigger and bigger, having the right gear is all players can talk about. I will give you my top 5 gaming mice that will help you with input delay, precision, and accuracy. There are many other great mice out there, but these are the top 5 that will help improve your gameplay and help you become the best player you can be.

Logitech G Pro X Superlight

Being an elite gamer and playing with all types of different mice and against lots of competition brings me to number 1 on my list: the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. For $160, this mouse weighs in at a whopping 60 grams. It also has a 20k dpi sensor that allows a 1.5ms response time. In addition, this mouse has a perfect shape. If you have a more significant hand like me, it will feel unique with the hump it has and the side buttons being positioned perfectly. This mouse also has good factory skates for great precision and accuracy. This mouse also has a battery life of 76 hours. 







Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro

The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro is the first lightweight, ergonomic mouse. If you love ergonomic mice, you will love this mouse as it weighs 63 grams. Priced at $160, this mouse also has razers new 30k sensor, allowing a 1ms response time. This mouse also has an excellent shape and fits the hand nicely, allowing for great precision and tracking. This mouse also has a battery life of 80 hours. 










Razer Viper V2 Pro

Number 3 on the list is the Razer Viper V2 Pro, which sells for $160. This mouse weighs 57 grams and is an ultralight mouse with razers’ new technology. This mouse has razers 30k dpi sensor. It also is the first mouse to have a 4k hz dongle which is insane. This mouse also comes with grips that keep players’ hands from sweating, keep the mouse clean, and prevents scratches. This mouse probably has the best precision and tracking, but I was not too fond of the shape and how it felt. This mouse also has a battery life of 80 hours.




Glorious Model O

Number 4 on my list is the Glorious Model O. The Model O weighs about 60 grams, and its lightness makes it significantly easier to aim and shoot because of its low latency clicks. This mouse is wired but only has a 12000 dpi sensor, so if you prefer for your mouse to have a high dpi, this isn’t a mouse for you. Another thing I noticed with this mouse is that it is more delayed than the other mice on this list, but it is a lot cheaper, pricing at about $40. If you want a high-end gaming mouse on the cheaper side, this is the mouse for you. 







Logitech G502 Lightspeed

Last but not least on my list is the Logitech G502 Lightspeed. This mouse weighs in at about 114 grams. It’s a wireless mouse that specializes in high-speed video games. This mouse has an excellent grip that holds your thumb in place. This mouse also has 12 customizable buttons that can be mapped and programmed. It also has Logitech’s Hero 25k sensor and a battery life of 48 hours. If your hand is small, this mouse will bother you, and this mouse weighs almost 50 grams more than the others on this list. However, if you like heavier mice, then this is the mouse for you.
