Often, the most exciting thing about new gaming hardware is how many RGB lights have been crammed into it. So instead of trying to fuel our inevitable rainbow-colored dystopian future, SteelSeries looked for a different way to enhance its Rival 600 mouse.
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.
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.
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.
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.
What do you get when you mate a phone dialpad with a gaming mouse? Razer's Naga MMO mouse, apparently. There's 17 buttons, as in sixteen candles plus one, minus the candles. Surprisingly, that's not the most interesting thing about Naga.
The Razer Mamba looks like a winner for gamers or anyone looking for a high-performance mouse: Lag free, 2.4GHz wireless or wired, with teflon base, and 1ms polling rate, rather than the usual 8ms.
SteelSeries' World of Warcraft MMO mouse is officially the most ridiculous gaming mouse I have ever seen. Designed with Blizzard just for WoW gamers (just in time for Wrath of the Lich King), it has 15 programmable buttons. You don't even have that many fingers. And it has flashing disco lights. In 16 million colors.…
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.
Here's the tricked-out STYX mouse from Speed-Link, and this one's unique because it has a selectable multi-fire function, letting you fill the air with virtual lead. You can set it to shoot either two, three, or four rounds at a time, with a backlight under the scroll wheel lighting up a corresponding color for each…
As we reported a couple of months back, Logitech is following up its G5 gaming mouse with the G9. Ah, a much nicer picture, don't you think? There's another one, alongside the press release detailing the G9's full specs and price after the jump.
