If you are still using a standard 2 button mouse to play your games, you are years behind my friend, and you need to upgrade to a real deal mouse for a real gamer. Here are my top 5 choices for the mouse you should be using.
Logitech MX 518
#1. The Logitech MX 518 High Performance Optical (Metal)
The Logitech MX 518 is probably the best gaming mouse, and best priced mouse available on the market. I upgraded from the Logitech G5 Gaming Mouse to this bad boy and haven’t regretted it since. This mouse has everything you need and more to maximize your gaming experience.
#2. The Microsoft SideWinder
The next mouse I recommend is the Microsoft SideWinder. This mouse takes a new look than the standard mouse and delivers an exceptional gaming experience to anyone who buys this mouse. It has several buttons to get the hotkey process in games handled easily and the mouse design is solid and professional. Not to mention you can surprise your friends with this unique looking mouse as well.
#3. Logitech G5 Laser (Blue or Black Available)
This mouse was my favorite for years until the newer Mx 518 came out. The G5 served me well in my last few years of gaming. It features several customizable buttons, a quick DPI swap near the middle scroll, and what some people may overlook; a mesh style housing for your cord. Let me tell you, I got a lot of use out of this particular mouse and if it hadn’t been for the way they protected the cord, this mouse would have died a lot earlier than it did on me. This mouse served me well.
#4. SteelSeries Special-Edition World of Warcraft
I don’t personally have any experience with this mouse, but if I didn’t already have what I think is the best mouse, this would be my #4 choice. This mouse was designed specifically for World of Warcraft gamers.
#5. Logitech G9 Laser Mouse
The Logitech G9, last on my list, but not anything less than you’d expect from a quality Logitech product. This mouse offers exceptional style, precision, and a weight tuning system, similar to the G5, to provide you with a high quality gaming experience.
Well, there you have it. If you still haven’t upgraded from your puny 2 button optical mouse yet, do so today! These are all affordable and very effective solutions to getting you the right mouse for your game.
