Corsair joins Razer and EVGA with their first 8000 Hz polling mouse. Equipped with PixArt's PMW3392, the right-handed ergonomic Sabre RGB Pro comes with spring-loaded main buttons, a flexible cable, and 72 g lightweight construction while retailing at $59.99, the lowest of all 8000 Hz mice thus far.
Shortly after Razer, EVGA hits the market with their own 8000 Hz polling-rate mouse. In addition to PixArt's PMW3389, the X17 uses two LOD sensors to achieve the lowest and most accurate lift-off distance possible. Particularly responsive spring-loaded main buttons and a highly granular weight system round things off.
Razer updates the wired Viper with 8000 Hz polling and their Focus+ 20,000 CPI sensor. Other than that, it's essentially the same mouse: Razer optical main button switches, 69 g lightweight design, and pure PTFE feet.
At long last, the classic DeathAdder has been given the wireless treatment as well. With a battery life of up to 120 hours in Bluetooth and up to 70 hours in 2.4 GHz mode, Razer's Focus+ sensor, optical main button switches, and an 87 g lightweight construction, the V2 Pro promises to be a successful continuation of the DeathAdder series.
Sharkoon expands their Light² series with the Light² S. The "S" stands for symmetrical, meaning it's not just ambidextrous, but has buttons on both sides. Equipped with PixArt's PMW3327, high quality PTFE feet, and a flexible braided cable, the 78 g Light² S goes for just $24.99.
Sporting the same shape as the Katar Pro Wireless, the ambidextrous Katar Pro XT brings the 18,000 CPI PMW3391 sensor, particularly responsive "Quickstrike" main button switches, a 75 g lightweight construction, and a flexible, braided cable to a highly affordable $29.99 price point.
The M.O.J.O. M1 is rather unusual for a Mad Catz mouse—no software and big customization options, but instead a 66 g lightweight design, flexible braided cable, and specifically tuned Dakota main button switches, it is priced at a similarly atypical $49.99.
The right-handed ergonomic ROG Keris Wireless aims to be ASUS's most accomplished mouse yet: PixArt's PAW3335 sensor, a 79 g lightweight design, hot-swappable main button switches, triple connectivity (wired, wireless, and Bluetooth), main button switches rated for 70 million clicks, pure PTFE mouse feet, and up to 78 hours of battery life.
The Dream Machines DM6 Holey Duo is quite aptly named: Featuring both wired and wireless connectivity, it comes with PixArt's PAW3335 sensor, Huano main button switches, 72 hours of battery life, and a 79 g honeycomb design, all for the wallet-friendly price of $49.99.
The Roccat Burst Core differs from the Burst Pro in four main aspects: the sensor, which is PixArt's PMW3331, the cable, which is stiffer and rubber, the RGB lighting, which only includes the scroll wheel, and the price, which is just $29.99.
Much like other Mad Catz mice, the R.A.T. Pro X3 Supreme is big on customization. Not just the shape, even the scroll wheel and mouse feet can be adjusted to one's liking. Furthermore, PixArt's PMW3389 and a polling rate of 3000 Hz promise very low latency.
Weighing just 67 g, the Aerox 3 Wireless is SteelSeries' first ultra-lightweight mouse. Usable either in 2.4 GHz, Bluetooth, or wired mode, the Aerox 3 Wireless is said to have up to 200 hours of battery life. Main button switches rated for 80 million clicks and the 18,000 CPI TrueMove Air sensor complete the package.
Much like previous Mad Catz mice, the R.A.T. 8+ ADV is big on customization. Both weight and shape can be adjusted, along with the ability to program all 11 buttons. PixArt's PMW3389 and a polling rate of up to 2000 Hz promise top-tier tracking.
A GPW-like symmetrical shape with detacheable side buttons on either side, PixArt's PAW3335 sensor, dual wired and wireless connectivity, and a 87 g honeycomb design, all for $49.99? Seems like a stretch, so let's see how the MoshPit WHM-01 holds up in practice.
The Sharkoon Light² 100 is the budget version of the Light² 200. Sporting the same shape, PixArt's PMW3325 sensor, and a weight of 78 g, the Light² 100 at just $24.99 only costs half as much as the Light² 200.
At just 57 g, the ambidextrous Pulsefire Haste is HyperX's first ultra-lightweight mouse. Equipped with TTC Golden switches rated for 60 M clicks for the main buttons, PixArt's PAW3335 sensor, high quality pure PTFE feet, and a highly flexible, braided cable, the Pulsefire Haste should be worth a look if you’re after an affordable gaming mouse.
With much anticipation, Glorious releases their Model O Wireless. At just 69 g, the Model O Wireless is almost as light as its wired sibling, all while having up to 71 hours of battery life and top-tier tracking, provided by their proprietary BAMF sensor. What's more, the Model O Wireless retails for just $79.99.
The DM6 Holey S is Dream Machines' first mouse with a lightweight honeycomb shell. Equipped with PixArt's PMW3389, Huano switches for the main buttons, and a highly flexible cable, the DM6 should be worth a look for anyone in the market for an affordable right-handed ergonomic mouse.
The Redragon M913 Impact Elite is highly affordable at $49.99, yet offers a ton of features. It's an MMO mouse with 18 programmable buttons, PixArt's top-tier PAW3335 sensor, and dual wireless/wired connectivity. The software of the M913 works well, and is light on resources, too.
Xtrfy returns, this time with an ambidextrous shape. The M42 comes with the usual assortment of features: PixArt's PMW3389 sensor, Omron switches for the main buttons, a 58 lightweight honeycomb design, flexible cable, and pure PTFE feet of high quality. Additionally, the M42 is modular and can be used with a low or high-profile back cover.
Essentially, the Naos-M is a lightweight (63 g) version of the Zowie S2. Much like previous HK Gaming releases, this one comes with PixArt's PMW3360 sensor, Omron (20M) main button switches, a highly flexible cable, and high-quality mouse feet. RGB lighting and software customization are included as well.
With the Katar Pro Wireless, Corsair brings wireless to a highly competitive price point. Powered by a single AA-battery and usable either in 2.4 GHz or Bluetooth mode, the Katar Pro Wireless weighs in at 98 g and comes with PixArt's PMW3325 sensor.
For the longest time, ROCCAT has been known for their right-handed ergonomic mice. The Burst Pro not only is ambidextrous, it also comes with a 70 g lightweight design, optical switches for the main buttons, a particularly flexible cable, high quality PTFE mouse feet, and PixArt's PMW3389 sensor.
As the name suggests, the Rival 3 Wireless is basically the wireless version of the ambidextrous Rival 3. With a new custom 18,000 CPI sensor, battery life of up to 400 hours, and optional Bluetooth operation, the Rival 3 Wireless brings a lot of innovation to an affordable price point of $49.99.
The Cooler Master MM720 is a reimagination of the classic Xornet/Spawn shape. Small and almost wider than long, the MM720 is specifically suited for claw and fingertip grip. The package is completed by PixArt's PMW3389 sensor, LK optical switches and encoder, an ultra-flexible cable, and a 50 g lightweight design.
