5 top gaming mice to buy in 2024

VXE R1 Pro in box

Ask any PC gamer to name their most essential piece of gaming gear, and chances are, they will say it's their gaming mouse. Whether you're playing an action RPG or a first-person shooter, a good gaming mouse makes a significant difference in your performance.

More than anything, gaming mice should be accurate and responsive, with adjustable sensitivity (DPI) and a comfortable, ergonomic design. While wired gaming mice offer the lowest latency, wireless ones have narrowed the gap in recent years, and are good enough for most users. Here are five of our favourite gaming mice to buy now.

Asus ROG Keris II Ace

With a 42,000-dpi optical sensor and a wireless polling rate of up to 4,000Hz, the Asus ROG Keris II Ace is right up there with its rivals (and also slightly cheaper at S$189). It's designed for right-handers, and is comfortable to use. Buttons are clicky and the scroll wheel is tactile. And you don't need to install any software to tweak settings like polling rate and DPI — they can be adjusted via onboard buttons.

BenQ Zowie U2

With a narrow curved profile, the BenQ Zowie U2 is designed for those who use a claw grip. While it's symmetrical, the position of the thumb buttons favour right-handers. Their placement and size make them easy to press with a claw grip. Settings are entirely adjustable using two buttons and a switch at the base. The Enhanced Wireless Receiver not only improves the wireless signal, but acts as a charging dock. But the Zowie U2 is fairly pricey at S$249.

Corsair M75 Air Wireless

The Corsair M75 Air Wireless resembles most lightweight gaming mice with a symmetrical look, but with thumb buttons meant for right-handers. It's comfortable in the hand, thanks to its matte surface, while its slightly raised hump fits my small hands nicely when using a palm grip. Its optical switches give an audible click when pressed. With its features, performance, and a relatively affordable S$149 price tag, it's a worthy alternative to the more expensive gaming mice in the market.

Razer Viper V3 Pro

Designed in collaboration with esports pros, the Razer Viper V3 Pro (S$239) feels almost too good for a regular gamer. At just 54g, it's one of the lightest gaming mice now. Razer has taken feedback from professional players to tweak the design, like relocating the DPI switch button to the bottom. The new lower hump also feels more comfortable for long gaming sessions, while the mouse feet are larger, and make for smoother gliding. A 8,000Hz polling dongle makes this mouse really responsive, though this will probably be appreciated more by esports pros.

VXE R1 Pro

At around S$52, the VXE R1 Pro is the budget, value-for-money option here. It's very light (around 50g), which helps it slide around the mousepad more smoothly than heavier models. It has a lower hump than some of its competitors — those coming from a Logitech or BenQ Zowie mouse may find the VXE less comfortable. The VGN Hub software to adjust the mouse settings can be accessed via a browser without installing any app, but it's only available in Chinese. Note that a separate 4K receiver (S$20) is required if you want a 4,000Hz polling rate. But the standard 1,000Hz dongle should suffice for most users.
