Glorious Model O


Players looking for a no thrills, high-performance mouse look no further than the Glorious Model O. With a honeycomb design for comfort and weight, the Model O comes in at a lightweight 60 grams.

Designed for lightness, the Model O is excellent for players who want to step up their hardware for FPS games. In addition to its weight, the Model O features a flexible cable and premium sensor. Meaning the Model O will give you a helping hand in hitting crispy flicks in the FPS of your choice.

Razer Naga Pro


With new MMOs being released and announced, all who want to try them out should consider the Razer Naga Pro.

The primary use case for this gaming mouse and mice like these is playing MMOs. Despite the Naga having quite a premium price, it is second to none regarding the options it gives each of its users. With three removable plates, players can choose between having twelve, six and two side buttons.

Its most significant and only real competitor being the Corsair Scimitar. The Naga takes the spot by having better customisation options and switches on the side buttons, as the Scimitar can feel spongy and unresponsive.

Razer Viper Mini


The last entry is for those with slightly smaller hands, as most of the mice on this list are pretty large due to their designs and use cases.

With a low price, weight, and small size, the Viper Mini is perfect for gamers with smaller hand sizes or for those looking for a portable mouse to pair with a laptop.

The size is its unique selling point, the Viper Mini is quite a simple mouse otherwise, but it still features good Razer switches and a solid build design.
