Minimalistic, low-profile, ambidextrous, and with a lightweight design and good sensor—a lot of FPS gamers crave a mouse with these specifications. SteelSeries has done it before, and they did it rather well, but it needed some tweaking. The Rival 110 has brought some anticipated upgrades to the renowned Rival 100, making it an eSports-ready, yet inexpensive choice of weapon, and of course it has RGB too.

ROCCAT introduced their amazing Living Light system for three of their products at CES 2018, and the Kone AIMO is one of them. Of course, lighting alone can't make a good mouse, but when it's wired up with a high-end optical sensor, 50 million click-rated Omron gaming switches, and an extremely good build quality, it can surely turn out great.

The ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin comes with a number of amazing features. Aura Sync RGB lighting, top-of-the-line optical sensor, socket-switch design, detachable cable - and I did not mention it all. ASUS really did set the standards high this time, but the price tag turned out to be quite spicy.

The members of the Cougar Minos series were thus far more budget than high-end gaming peripherals. The Minos X5, however, is quite an icebreaker in this term, featuring the best optical sensor currently on the market while being reasonably cheap with a $49.99 price tag. It also features fully customizable two-zone RGB lighting, Omron switches rated for 50 million clicks, and a customizable back panel.

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Mouse is $140, but Logitech claims that it can be used both wired and wirelessly without any loss of performance. At that price point, it would need to be a lot of mouse with a great sensor.

A few months ago, we reviewed the Dream Machines DM1 PRO, and Dream Machines is now back with the DM1 PRO S. This version has an updated sensor, has been slimmed down to be even lighter, and has a rather nice glossy finish. Improvements, which could be a game changer.

Corsair has been doing very well recently within the peripheral market, but offers very few options in the budget category. This changes now with the $29 Harpoon RGB gaming mouse, which still manages to include a decent sensor and RGB support at its low price.
