One of the most important requirements in playing games on your computer is control. Nowhere is this control most necessary than in the mouse. In computer games, this peripheral is vital because a player’s control of the game determines his or her chances for victory.
There are many aspects of the mouse that can help a player gain control over the MMORPG game of your choice. Aside from the many functions that can be programmed into it that helps with precision, speed and ease, the mouse also needs to be physically comfortable and perfect to the user’s touch, in addition to several other factors.
Let’s take a closer look at three of the most popular, best rated for 2016.
Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse
The all-new Razer DeathAdder has just acquired an upgrade: a 6400dpi Optical Sensor, a first in the world. With it, the Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse has just gone up to another performance level while keeping the feel of the original which many have learned to value.
The new sensor does not have drift control which means you can make minor movements in the game. This is important for FPS gamers in lining up that great headshot. Coupled with this, the DeathAdder has an on-the-fly adjustment for sensitivity.
This gaming mouse can move at 200 inches per second and has a 50g acceleration even at a very low dpi settin. It can adjust and can catch up your hand’s movements across the surface – even if the sensitivity is scaled low. This results in close to a 1-to-1 response involving your mouse and your game.
With the improved ergonomics by way of integrating the new side grips, your fingers are in firm control of the mouse, however aggressive your swipe is. Like what everyone wants, this gaming mouse that stands out as the best in the business is the one that makes sure your fingers are in firm control.
For southpaws or left handed individuals, the good news is that you won’t suffer using an ambidextrous mouse (for both right-handers and left-handers) again. The all-new Razer DeathAdder Ergonomic PC Gaming Mouse has specific models that are made specifically for left-handed players.
Overall, the size and the weight is perfected and made to fit the gamer’s hand with style and comfort. Additionally, the scroll wheel is made flatter and more responsive to the hand’s movements. Both the right and left click buttons are adjusted to the heavy usage expected in most computer games.
Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse
The new Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse succeeds the Logitech G500s with upgraded design choices and a remarkable physical layout that makes it a standout, surpassing its predecessor. The intuitive design has the dual benefit of comfort to both the player who uses a palm grip and the player who uses a claw grip.
There are 11 programmable buttons and their arrangement is intuitive and smart. Buttons for the thumbs are large with the lowest sniper button placed strategically to lower DPI. The DPI buttons right next to the left mouse button are far enough but are easy to press without looking.
The new Logitech G502 Proteus Core is flexible to work on wood, steel, laminate or on regular mouse pads. Anticipating differences in gaming style, the mouse has been designed to be fully customizable to surface tuning calibration. This allows gamers to choose the efficiency of the mouse sensors to work on any surface.
It has five weights (3.6 grams each) stored inside for adjusting the weight. The user can remove the weights depending on his preference. He can place them at whatever place (back or front) inside the mouse itself where he is most comfortable with.
The new 502 still has the free-scroll, this time with the scroll wheel becoming rock solid when pressed, with enough resistance still available. This was to improve the old G500s which has a scroll wheel that becomes loose and flimsy.
The mouse has the regular left button, the right button and this scroll wheel that can be clicked in three directions. It has two DPI buttons (dots per inch) around the top, one button under the button for scrolling as well as three buttons for the thumb. A non-programmable button is located under the scroll wheel to adjust the rolling friction.
The G502 Proteus Core can scan the PC for installed games, create their profiles, customize them, and store them (3 profiles internally and any number on the computer). Macros can be created to control illumination and the DPI range (200 to 12,000).
Profiling is simply clicking on the game-specific command and drag it to the preferred button. The software will apply the profile automatically when the game is launched.
The Logitech G502 Proteus Cori also has the dual-mode scroll that is hyper fast, an update to the old dual-mode that gives click-to-click precision during scrolls. (Scrolling during Internet surfing is still fast enough even with the secondary mode).
