No matter how high resolution your monitor is, no matter how crisp and clear the audio coming from your headset is, no matter how ergonomic and comfortable your chair is, without a quality mouse, you aren’t getting the most out of your gaming setup.
Whether you are on a budget, or aren’t even looking at the price tag, taking your gaming to the next level is as simple as upgrading your mouse. Here I will explain to you the 3 top gaming mouse brands on the market and their top sellers:
Razer is without a doubt one of the biggest leaders in global gaming equipment. Founded in 2005, they have exploded in success with top leading gaming equipment such as award winning peripherals, laptops, software platforms and gaming chairs.
Among these outstanding products are their gaming mice. Their reputation as one of the best producers of gaming mice all started with their iconic Razer DeathAdder, which quickly shot to fame by becoming the best selling gaming mouse in the world.
Since then, their success has been maintained with products such as the Razer Viper and Razer Basilik. With nearly 5 star ratings on almost every shopping platform Razer gaming mice are said to have impeccable shape, flawless tracking and are lightning fast.
The idea for Logitech was born at Stanford University in 1976 by two computer science students. Originally, the business partners started their company with word-processing systems and hardware architecture. In 1982 the conceptual idea of a computer mouse began to surface so Logitech took this opportunity and ran with it.
Their very first prototype was the P4 mouse, which gained attention from bigger companies such as HP and eventually, Apple. Since then, Logitech has taken the gaming mice market by storm. Like Razer, almost every product at every retail store has 5 star reviews boasting about their unbeatable optical sensor, affordability, ergonomic shape, stability and consistency.
Some of Logitech’s best-selling gaming mice include products such as G203, G402, Logitech Light Sync, G203 Prodigy and G ProX Superlight wireless gaming mouse.
Founded in 2001, SteelSeries was the first gaming brand to sponsor an esports event back in 2002 – dubbing them the “original esports brand”. As stated on their website, they claim to be the first founders of a laundry list of gaming equipment. From mechanical gaming keyboards, gaming headsets with suspended headbands and even the first glass mouse pad, they aren’t lying.
Since their early days of firsts, SteelSeries has only consistently grown in popularity amidst the gaming community. With products like their Prime Wireless, SteelSeries mice have a reputation of not only being essentially lag-free but being over the top comfortable in your hand.
SteelSeries mice do tend to be on the pricier side but according to their loyal consumer base, they are worth every penny.
While we only discussed 3 different gaming mice brands, these are the brands that not only consistently score the highest reviews on almost every platform possible. Of course, there are far more than 3 brands to choose from, but sticking with Razer, Logitech or SteelSeries mice will give you peace of mind that no matter which product of theirs you choose, you will have confidence knowing your gaming is being taken to the next level.
