Basic features of a gaming mouse

  • DPI/Sensitivity: DPI (dots per inch) or the sensitivity of a mouse determines displacement as how far the cursor will move when you move the mouse. The higher the DPI, more the cursor will move with a little mouse moment. The gaming mouse may vary from 100 DPI to 8000 DPI or even more
  •  Macro Keys/ Programmable buttons:  Many high end gaming mouse have a few buttons on them that are a quick access to some macros(in built functions).
  •  Wired/Wireless: Now this is an important decision to be made before you go to buy a gaming mouse.

This is because, the wireless mouse suffers lag that occurs due to time taken by signals to travel wirelessly from laptop to mouse and vice versa. Gaming requires quick response and a minute miss in time may make you loose.
  • Polling rate/ Response time: It is the speed of the mouse in accordance to its movement. Simply explaining, this means the time lag between when you click and when that click response generates. Its measured in Hz(Hertz) and lesser the time lag, more is the polling/response time.

5. SteelSeries Rival 600 Gaming Mouse –  Best FPS gaming mouse

(Average Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars)
Type: Wired – Right handed
Dimensions: 131 mm / 69 mm / 27 mm (front), 43 mm(back) – (L/W/H)
Weight: 96 g to 128 g (customisable)

The Steelseries Rival 600 is a super performer with soft touch and silicon grips that make it comfortable for palm as well as claw grips. This mouse is incorporated with great features.

  • 1 left click button and 1 right click button – The left and right click buttons are split triggered perfectly for your comfort and speed. These mechanical switches offer an extended durability upto 60 million clicks.
  • Scroll wheel – This rubber scroll has superb grip with tiny digs on it.
  • 1 button right  below the scroll wheel on the top surface-  Its there for the DPI sensitivity settings to be set as per your gaming needs.
  • 3 thumb buttons- All these are placed on the thumb side with 2 placed one after the other and one staying diagonally.

First of all, there are two sensors called Truemove3+(Truemove3 + depth sensing linear system) and one optical sensor that work together in giving you the perfect tracking and no drifting when the mouse is lifted. The Truemove3 sensor itself is self sufficient in giving around 12000 CPI and 1 to 1 tracking for upto 3500 CPI at a lift off of mere .5mm – you will never miss a hit!

Second one is the amazing feature of adjustable weights that allows you to adjust  or balance weight as per your choice. There are 8 weights with each weighing 4 grams and 4 on each side of the mouse. You can slide out the rubber grips on both the sides to have access to these.

Third feature is the RGB Spectrum lightning. You can now have a rainbow colored mouse lighting with 8 light zones that are well diffused.

On the downside is the cable that is made of rubber and sticks here and there putting a hurdle to free move. Also, the weight management becomes a bit tricky at times.

Logitech G502 review

(Average Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars)
Type: Wired – Right handed
Dimensions: 132 mm / 75 mm / 40 mm  – (L/W/H)
Weight: 168 g

  • 1 DPI shift button at thumb side below DPI up and down button.

1 more non programmable button right below the scroll button to set the scroll wheel friction.

With surface testing feature, you can test the surface first and adjust accordingly for fine mouse response. This means you can even use a paper and adjust accordingly for fine performance.

Weight adjustment feature is pretty simple in this device. There is a magnetic opening at the bottom, which contains 5 weights of 3.6 grams each. You can adjust them for place and weight according to your needs in a balanced way.

Adding to these is a programmable color feature, where you can choose among 16.8 million color variants in the Logitech gaming software.

The only downside is that this mouse may prove to be just an average while in MMO.

7. Logitech G703 – Best wireless gaming mouse by Logitech

Logitech G703 review

(Average Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars)
Type: Wireless – Right handed
Dimensions: 124 mm / 68 mm / 43 mm  – (L/W/H)
Weight: 106 g – non powerplay variant
                  108 g – powerplay variant

This ergonomically designed Logitech G703 comes with the powerplay(a wireless charging mouse pad). This might be a bit expensive variant, but is a powerful performance leader, the other variant without powerplay is less expensive and powerful too. You can choose among two body colors – black and  snow white.

A total of 6 programmable buttons are incorporated as-

  • 1 left click button and 1 right click button – This classic design of a mouse has smooth left and right click buttons.

  • 1 DPI button below the scroll wheel-  This is the only button that is there to set DPI low or high ranging from 200 to 12000
  • 2 Thumb buttons- These two reside at your thumb side.

It has always been a proven experience that a wired mouse is more reliable, robust and responsive than a wireless mouse, but Logitech G703’s Light speed technology proves this wrong. This mouse is a superb performer with its consistency and precision – might not be better than wired, but stands neck to neck to it.

The no pixel rounding and a zero smoothing ensures perfect sensitivity even at the highest DPI.

The base of the mouse contains a round circular cap which contains powercore module for powerplay variant and a 10 – gram weight for non powerplay variant.

The logo is illuminating and you can set it to any color of your choice in the software application.

The onboard memory stores the profiles set by you using the software and keeps them until your next change.

The only downside reported is that the foot at the bottom of the mouse have high grip, making it hard to move at times.

This super mouse gives you the pleasure of the most comfortable touch and feel in this price range. The body of the mouse is skin friendly and sweat resistant. The side grips are soft and sturdy.
