Accuracy is one the key factor for gamers. In competitive gaming where fractions of a second can matter, good gaming mouse makes a difference. Actually main part of the mouse which makes it such accurate is sensor. Nowadays most gaming mouse use laser sensor, instead of optical sensor. The difference between the two is that Optical mice can only be used on Opaque Surfaces, when laser mice can be used even on Specular Surfaces (such as glass).

Adjustable DPI

DPI (Dots Per Inch), sometimes called CPI (Counts Per Inch) shows number of individual dots that can be placed in a line within the span of 1 inch. The higher a mouse’s DPI, the farther the cursor on your screen will move. Usually the number of DPI varies from 200-800 DPI, but they can go as high as 8200 DPI with gaming grade laser mice. Some mouse models include dedicated buttons (DPI On-the-fly buttons) which you can use to instantly adjust your mouse sensitivity. For example: you can switch between a fast speed when you are close quarters and a slow speed when you are sniping.


In addition to a good gaming mouse companies offer their customers special software, which allows players to fully customize their mouse.

So far almost every top level gaming mouse features custom weight system, which allows the players to adjust the weight of their mouse. Some mice include interchangeable weights, for customizing the mouse’s heft. A heaver mouse makes it easier to make fine movements, while a lighter mouse makes it easier to make large movements. By combining the right weights, you can create something new and individual.

Programmable Buttons

For ease of use, most gaming mouse offer multiple, well-placed programmable buttons. MMO fans adore this feature, because this buttons can be programmed to in-game macros or as complex actions, in order to perform a certain action in game. When it comes to extra buttons, first try which one seem well placed in terms of ergonomics and only then start building your own profile of combinations.
