This vote had no black and white winner, and rather than making the judgment call ourselves, we're going to tell it like it is.
This year's set of contenders for best gaming mouse is 60% Logitech after our nomination round, which is in line with the interest in gaming mouse brands we see across our Deals and gaming peripherals coverage. Of 2013's contenders, the DeathAdder and Naga, in their latest incarnations, make a return. Once again,…
Our late 2013 Gaming Mouse Vote was one our biggest and most heavily debated ever. Many new contenders have of course emerged since then, and it's time to crown a new king. Which gaming mouse reigns supreme in 2015? Tell us in the comments.
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.
Logitech's latest packs in an onboard processor and a lot of speed.
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.
