How to choose a Gaming Mouse (2017 Guide)

After doing 70 mouse reviews in the last 19 months, I wanted to make a guide based on what I’ve learned about choosing a gaming mouse. There are a lot of great options , so it really depends what’s going to suit you. Hopefully this video can narrow down the choices and give you some ideas.

Remember, these are just my opinions; it’s always up to you to buy what you want.

I’ll try to do a budget list in the future, but it’s hard because prices always change, and mice go on special too.

Geronimo says:

Just ordered a G900 to replace my aging G400 which I have been using since 2012. Thanks for your videos Zy. They made it much easier for me to choose a new mouse.

Darren Godbold says:

Intellimouse or bust.

Phexlar says:

SarcasticFox says:

I have a 16.5cm by 9cm hand and play a lot of FPS games. Looking for a mouse with side buttons to bind to melee and push to talk. I mostly use a claw or palm grip depending on the day. I wanna play a bit more competitively. I also plan on buying it during black Friday. Recommendations?

Milan Babic says:

Great video! Could you do a review on a Kingston HyperX Pulsefire mouse if you can get your hands on one?

mico george says:

Is the g403 wireless good for fps?

Zenyatta says:

Pee Buddy says:

i guesss dman it i dont have money

Hahrambeh says:

is 2013 DeathAdder still good for dota?

b0sse says:

Mice these days are so fucking expensive. My favorite mouse of all time has just broken down (Logitech G400) and apparently they dont make those or sell those anywhere anymore and I can’t really find a good replacement for it. All these other recommended one’s like EC-2, FK2, Castro etc are too expensive incomparison to what I payed for the G400 back when I bought it.

Ugh, I can’t decide on what to do.

Ardin Drejta says:

im a overwatch player and kinda stuck between zowie and deathadder … Play genji. wich one u guys think i should get ?

Adrian Christ says:

How to choose a mouse: Pick the Logitech mouse that fits your hands the most.

Darth Tesla says:

G pro only for under 17cm hands, what? It’s exactly the 60% ratio for >18cm <19cm hands.. i was about to order g203 (-.-*)

Viri 369 says:

That size guide alone makes this instantly the most useful guide I’ve seen.

Zuna Tik says:

Great and neat video. I like the way you edited your video and put different pieces of videos together!

Maverick Andre says:

im switchung to pc gaming and this is so helpful, thank you

suicidal.banana says:

@RocketJumpNinja Hey man, first off, thanks for the many many mouse reviews, but i have a question, what is an ‘unsafe’ mouse? you mention this in a few reviews (‘its a little unsafe’) but im clueless as to what you mean with that.

WAJDIX TV2 says:

guys which mouse is the best for cs go??

Deadeye says:

Defiantly going to return to your channel when I replace my Rival.

So,
See you in 8 years (probably)

Tomas Vu says:

faker in 2016 he said he had he was 18 years gamer and now he said he is over 30 years of gaming …..

Zachary HK says:

Hello, I just brought a g402 . And I found it is so big for me to use.I just feel I am moving the mouse but not moving the crosshair directly.just not comfortable. I am 19.3 x 9.5hand . I found I cant know is the mouse fit me by just holding it.so any other method to find my perfect mouse?

przemoc19225004 says:

What about Logitech G502? How does it compare to G403?

Mariboraku says:

i want the razer naga hex v2 BU IM BROKE AFF

SinMachine says:

I use a Razer Naga Chroma and I play mostly FPS.
DPI is at 5500 but I find it’s heavy weight lets me be more accurate and having all the buttons on the side let me access my inventory quickly without ever moving my hand away from my movement keys or my mouse.
I would love to see a review on the Razer Naga Chroma and your rating on how well it does in FPS as well as other games like MOBA’s / MMO’s.

Mirakuru says:

Whats better zowie fk or zowie ec?

keeganoneill4 says:

What is your name on the Beta so i can keep an eye out for you as i know not many people are in it

Best Friend Venom says:

When you mention the Corsair Scimitar, although I love the design of mouse, I hate that it’s much more expensive to get a black one opposed to a yellow one. I’ve only looked one place, but it’s about $60 difference

Fliegendes Geheimnis says:

Logitech G403 or G Pro?
