Razer loves to steal the show. Every CES, there's some crazy new project from the gaming hardware company. Apparently their longtime rival Mad Catz was having enough of that, because they pulled out all the freaking stops this year.
Ergonomically, SteelSeries' new Sensei mouse is just like their previous ambidextrous kit, so the upgrades are all under the hood: Namely, a 32-bit ARM processor that doubles its max counts per inch from 5700 to 11,400.
Damien Crossan's gaming mouse concept looks like the offspring of a Razer mouse and Thing from the Addams Family. Ergonomic? You betcha. See if you still get RSI playing StarCraft on this 11-button monster.
My right hand's too broken in to switch back to mousing with my left hand, but no PC gamer ever needs to know the right-handed prejudice I've suffered: Behold, the Razer DeathAdder Left Hand Edition.
An outlier in PC gaming, SteelSeries' gear won't outglow Chernobyl. It's unassuming and utilitarian, like ThinkPads. They take themselves a little too seriously. But Xai is possibly the best ambidextrous gaming mouse I've ever used, despite the ridiculous HD gimmick.
The Imperator is Razer's latest gaming mouse, and it may be their best—oddly, because it feels like a mouse from an entirely different company.
Razer's Imperator is pretty standard right-handed Razer gaming mouse (5600dpi tracking, etc.), but it has sliding thumb buttons, so you can adjust exactly where they sit on the mouse. Could be gimmicky, but I'm definitely intrigued. [Razer]
I'm a minimalist when it comes to mouse bling, but for $50, Razer's Abyssus is a little too lean—there aren't even any thumb buttons—just raw 3500DPI tracking and a 1ms response time with on-the-fly adjustment.
Did you know it was gaming mouse season? It's the time of year when they come out of their Cheeto-packed burrows to mate. SteelSeries' Xai's mating call is its "high definition" sensor.
Silverstone's Raven gaming mouse looks really interesting at first glance, what with the giant, glowing and strangely hypnotic tumor bolted to its side. It appears to be a secondary scroll wheel, which sits next to the usual thumb buttons. And you've got another pair of buttons next to your middle finger. But when you…
The Gadget Avatar is the first-ever gaming mouse from NZXT, who's better known for its Battlestar Galactica-worthy PC cases. It's got the usual gaming mice features—a ridiculous DPI count with on-the-fly-switching, a crapload of customizable buttons, and bright, shiny lights.
HP has two new mice out dedicated to gaming. The HDX Laser Mouse gives you five mouse setting profiles, five programmable macro buttons, and is allegedly eight times faster than conventional mice. The slightly more advanced Laser Gaming Mouse with Voodoo DNA gives you everything the regular laser mouse has, plus HP's…
With 3200dpi gaming mice becoming de rigeur, Razer needed to step it up to 4000 to keep the pissing match going. Even though a 3200dpi mouse is already too fast for some, I4U's reviewer says that Razer's 4000dpi Lachesis "is very accurate and tracking is great," particularly in Crysis. But, most of you probably aren't…
Saitek continues on the path of insane 3200dpi laser gaming mice, though its latest, the Cyborg, seems to take a cue from Logitech's G9 design-wise with a boatload of customization options—unless you're a leftie (ha!). Besides being similarly ugly, you can adjust the grip by sliding the front section forward or…
Some Chinese site seems to have some leaked photos of Logitech's upcoming G9 gaming mouse. If this is real, the upgrade to the G5 gaming mouse has interchangeable face plates, LEDs for resolution display and some modularization changes all over the place. Ugly photos aside, this one looks fairly convincing. […
The R2 Gaming Mouse Mark II is a 1600 dpi input device that takes an unusual approach. It's aimed at hard-core gamers, and is highly customizable with seven buttons to which you can assign a function, keystroke or macro. You can even program those incessantly blinking LED lights.
