(Pocket-lint) - Gaming-Mäuse sind die High-End-Geräte der Mauswelt. Sie sind präziser gestaltet, bieten ein komfortableres Erlebnis und sind auf Langlebigkeit ausgelegt – da Spieler wahrscheinlich mehr Zeit mit ihrer Maus verbringen als alle anderen.

Gaming-Mäuse der Spitzenklasse verfügen außerdem über mehrere Tasten, eine hochgradig einstellbare DPI-Genauigkeit und eine Vielzahl von Einstellungen, die von benutzerdefinierter Beleuchtung bis hin zu Makros für bestimmte Spiele alles umfassen.

Es kann jedoch schwierig sein, die richtige Maus für Sie zu finden. Die Leute halten sie auf unterschiedliche Weise und haben unterschiedlich große Hände, die den Kauf zu einem kniffligen Geschäft machen. Eine breite Maus mit Daumenauflagen und Griffen ist vielleicht perfekt für jemanden mit großen Händen, aber andere mögen eine kleine und schlanke Maus bevorzugen, sowohl in Bezug auf Passform als auch Beweglichkeit.

Wir haben eine Vielzahl von Gaming-Mäusen getestet, um herauszufinden, welche die besten sind, und berücksichtigen dabei all die Dinge, die Gamer am meisten lieben – RGB, Reaktionsfähigkeit, Anzahl der Tasten und natürlich das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

Wir haben diese Mäuse auf verschiedene Weise getestet, einschließlich der Spielstunden sowie der Verwendung für alltägliche Arbeits- und Produktivitätsaufgaben. Wir haben mit den Einstellungen herumprobiert und herumgespielt und auch die Funktionen gründlich getestet. Im Folgenden finden Sie eine Aufschlüsselung unserer Lieblingsmäuse und derjenigen, die wir für die besten halten, die Sie derzeit kaufen können.


Unsere aktuelle Lieblings-Gaming-Maus ist die Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Wireless . Es gibt auch andere Optionen, die es wert sind, in Betracht gezogen zu werden, darunter das Razer Basilisk Ultimate , das Logitech G Pro X Superlight , das Razer Naga Pro und das Asus ROG Gladius III Wireless .

Other gaming mice to consider

How to choose the right gaming mouse for you

Obviously, there's a lot to consider when buying a gaming mouse. Trying to find the right one for you can be tricky as there are all sorts of mice in all manner of shapes and sizes with different specs and features on offer. It can be hard to know what matters or what you'll like. 

Specs that matter

You'll find all gaming mice have a number of specs worth paying attention to. These include max acceleration and max speed numbers. Usually the higher these numbers the better. Along with a good sensor, these specs ensure good tracking and accurate representation of your mouse movements and the ability to keep up with your quick flicks. 

You'll also find the best mice often have insanely high DPI levels. Many of Logitech's mice, for example, boast as much as 25,600 DPI. The company says that its sensors and these DPI levels allow the mouse to "...accurately track movement at the sub-micron level (1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter, or 0.000001m). Without compromising on accuracy."

Realistically, most gamers will find that 25,000 DPI is far too much for standard use. Indeed even the pro gamers will opt for lower DPI, lightweight mice or set their mice to low DPI levels. Still having a good DPI range offers a lot of flexibility. 

Grip type

There are three main grip types - palm grip, claw grip and fingertip grip. Some mice are designed to cater to all types while others are only suitable for one or two. SteelSeries has a nice guide to the different grip types and that's worth reading if you don't know how your hold your mouse already. 

If you use a palm grip, then you'll often need a larger mouse or you'll find the mouse is too small and uncomfortable to use. Smaller mice might only cater to claw grip and won't be suitable, so this is an important point of consideration before you buy. 

How many buttons do you need?

Most modern gaming mice sport somewhere between six and eight buttons. These usually include the left and right buttons, mouse wheel, two side buttons and maybe a couple of DPI level buttons.

This setup might be enough for most gamers - especially if you're mostly playing FPS games. But if you are more of a MOBA, MMO or RPG gamer then you might like to consider a mouse with more buttons. That'll make life easier to carry out actions, combine in-game abilities and generally win. 

Having more buttons isn't always better though. We've found some mice offer buttons on both sides of the frame, but that can be problematic as you might accidentally activate these buttons when you don't mean to, which can be a real pain. So think about which buttons you need and whether you actually need more before you commit to a purchase. 

Ultra-light? 

The latest trend for gaming mice is to shed as much weight as possible and offer up large super slick PTFE areas to help you game. These lightweight mice mean you can run a low DPI but still flick them about quickly and easily. Pro players swear by these mice. They obviously have the added bonus of reducing any aches or fatigue you might otherwise get with heavier mice. 

One downside though is the lighter mice often feel cheap, sound hollow and aren't as feature-rich. If you prefer your mouse to have a bit of heft and a premium solid build quality then there's nothing wrong with that. Some of the heavier mice also have a lot more to offer, not just RGB but more buttons, wireless connectivity and more.

How many buttons do you need?

Most modern gaming mice sport somewhere between six and eight buttons. These usually include the left and right buttons, mouse wheel, two side buttons and maybe a couple of DPI level buttons.

This setup might be enough for most gamers - especially if you're mostly playing FPS games. But if you are more of a MOBA, MMO or RPG gamer then you might like to consider a mouse with more buttons. That'll make life easier to carry out actions, combine in-game abilities and generally win. 

Having more buttons isn't always better though. We've found some mice offer buttons on both sides of the frame, but that can be problematic as you might accidentally activate these buttons when you don't mean to, which can be a real pain. So think about which buttons you need and whether you actually need more before you commit to a purchase. 

Ultra-light? 

The latest trend for gaming mice is to shed as much weight as possible and offer up large super slick PTFE areas to help you game. These lightweight mice mean you can run a low DPI but still flick them about quickly and easily. Pro players swear by these mice. They obviously have the added bonus of reducing any aches or fatigue you might otherwise get with heavier mice. 

One downside though is the lighter mice often feel cheap, sound hollow and aren't as feature-rich. If you prefer your mouse to have a bit of heft and a premium solid build quality then there's nothing wrong with that. Some of the heavier mice also have a lot more to offer, not just RGB but more buttons, wireless connectivity and more. 

How to choose the right gaming mouse for you

Obviously, there's a lot to consider when buying a gaming mouse. Trying to find the right one for you can be tricky as there are all sorts of mice in all manner of shapes and sizes with different specs and features on offer. It can be hard to know what matters or what you'll like. 

Specs that matter

You'll find all gaming mice have a number of specs worth paying attention to. These include max acceleration and max speed numbers. Usually the higher these numbers the better. Along with a good sensor, these specs ensure good tracking and accurate representation of your mouse movements and the ability to keep up with your quick flicks. 

You'll also find the best mice often have insanely high DPI levels. Many of Logitech's mice, for example, boast as much as 25,600 DPI. The company says that its sensors and these DPI levels allow the mouse to "...accurately track movement at the sub-micron level (1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter, or 0.000001m). Without compromising on accuracy."

Realistically, most gamers will find that 25,000 DPI is far too much for standard use. Indeed even the pro gamers will opt for lower DPI, lightweight mice or set their mice to low DPI levels. Still having a good DPI range offers a lot of flexibility. 

Grip type

There are three main grip types - palm grip, claw grip and fingertip grip. Some mice are designed to cater to all types while others are only suitable for one or two. SteelSeries has a nice guide to the different grip types and that's worth reading if you don't know how your hold your mouse already. 

If you use a palm grip, then you'll often need a larger mouse or you'll find the mouse is too small and uncomfortable to use. Smaller mice might only cater to claw grip and won't be suitable, so this is an important point of consideration before you buy.
