The currently best wireless mice suitable for gaming

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm searching for a wireless mouse that is comfortable, good-looking, and suitable for FPS gaming. Who isn't right? rolleyes.gif
Well, I can (or have to) sacrifice some sensor performance, I know that beforehand.

So far I'm only aware of those two:
Sensei Wireless
Razer Mamba Chroma Wireless


Any other tips?
Experiences with those two?

If it were me I'd personally go with the Razer if those are your only two choices but most wireless mice now days will give you the same performance the only differences being button configurations and style. I have a $10 Laser mouse that works great so it's really personal preference. You can't go wrong either way!

Logitech has some good ones.

G700s More for general/fps. 4 side buttons. Short battery life. Heavy. Up to 1000 polling rate (use on my main rig)
G602 More for mmo's. 6 side buttons. long battery life. Up to 500 polling rate. (use on my office rig)

I'm sure there are others, but, those are the ones I know off hand.

Is the G602 useable? I cannot see my thumb liking the left side because of those many buttons.
G700s looks alright but the sensor is very very high. Hmm...


G602 with Delta Zero Tech .. looks like it's using the AM010 sensor, comparable to the 500Hz only implementation in the G100S?

The G602 is the naturally more comfortable of the two. It was easy to hold and get used to. The side buttons however gave me issues at my main computer desk. I tend to sit lower at it and always pressed the side buttons. At my office desk I sit higher and have not had that issue. Honestly I'm not big into side buttons (I tend to finger/claw grip when gaming). I set up page up / page down and the rest I set to nothing. I can't live without page up / down now though.

No clue about the sensor. I'm not all crazy into competitive gaming. What I can say about the G700s was it took a long time to get used to. It's very back heavy, needs to be charged daily (vs weeks for the 602). For the first month I was very aware of using it. After that time I stopped thinking about it and am now very happy with it. I don't have issues with pressing the side buttons on that one accidentally.

Personally I'd suggest ordering whatever mouse from amazon. That way if you don't like it it's an easy return. I will say that off first impressions I hated the G700s. Now, I don't want to use another mouse. Just the damned thing took forever to get used to.

What is the reason for requiring a wireless mouse? Is it out of necessity or novelty? The reason I ask is if this is your first foray into gaming with a wireless mouse, prepare to be frustrated. I'm not sure how far wireless technology has come, but I believe the last wireless mouse I attempted to game on was an MX700 back in the day. I believe my progression went MX700->MX510->MX518. The later two of course being wired mice. All I remember is the horrible inconsistency in battery life whenever I tried doing any serious gaming with it. The tracking was OK if I remember right... it was capable of gaming (although I wasn't competing yet I don't believe so this was more casual.. I switched to a MX510-518 because I started getting into serious competitive gaming. The biggest issue I had was the battery life as I said. It would never last the full time that logitech claimed it was on a full charge, and in those days the MX700 was a premium wireless mouse. That mouse is the reason I swore off ALL wireless peripherals except headphones.

If the technology has improved immensely since that time period, then I can't say much. However, everyone who has used a wireless mouse has experienced the one time they forgot to plug it in it's dock overnight, only to log on the next day ready to do some gaming, to find that there mouse is dead.. and if you were like me and didn't have a wired mouse back-up ... you were pretty much screwed. No matter how nice the novelty of wireless is... I never want to be at the mercy of a battery as far as when I can and can't play a game. But like I said, if you absolutely need a wireless mouse, just never forget to plug it back in it's dock when your done... and I'm a firm believer that no wireless mouse will perform as well as a wired mouse...even with how far sensor technology has come. I could be wrong but that's just my personal belief.

Edit: I forgot to mention, I DO currently use a Logitech M325 for my laptop surfing. That mouse actually performs perfectly for desktop use. But I would never dare play a game on it, other than maybe Minecraft biggrin.gif

Also it appears wireless battery technology has massively improved since the days of my MX700 with it's 6 foot distance capability, and it's maybe 6-8 hours of battery life when in constant use. Rofl... so you can pretty much forget everything I said other than the fact that a wired mouse will always outperform a wireless one. smile.gif

I think the SS Sensei Wireless looks pretty good.
If it was me, I'd go for that; besides, I think SteelSeries is a great company.

If you can get it for a good price, even better, as direct from their website, they are a bit overpriced.

The G700s can be used plugged in. The G602 (602 doesn't charge) can't. You'd likely want to set the cord up so that it's easy to use, but, I've had to do it once or twice. Now I plug it in every night like clockwork. I don't do any serious gaming though. Maybe 20 - 30 min at a time. Use my controller more then I use my M&kb for gaming. Though anything first person I use m&kb of course.

Here are some pics of the two next to each other. (The bottom of the G602 catches on cloth mouse pads. I use it without one)

The sensor position on the G700S seems so weird. I've never used one so I can't comment on what it fels like, and I believe it's laser so I'm not sure how much difference it makes compared to optical sensors.

The only things I found difficult to get used to was the weight (weight/balance) of it and remembering to charge it nightly. Not sure how much of a difference the sensor placement makes. I also didn't notice a huge difference moving optical to laser. I do know it's a hell of a lot better then using a normal wireless mouse in gaming. It seems to aim fairly well and glides smoothly on my mouse pad. I used a normal wireless M series mouse for years. I then moved to a wired corsair gaming mouse and could not get used to the cord. I bought this one and ended up liking it a lot as wireless mouse that does well at gaming.

I bought the G602 for my wife and she didn't like it so I now use it in the office.


**The sensor placement seems to work well with my finger/claw type grip. It allows for fairly quick and agile movements of the mouse without having to move my wrist palm off the mouse pad. Least it seems that way now that I'm thinking about it.
