Razer vs SteelSeries vs Logitech: Which of these gaming mouse brands is king?

1 of 6

If you play games on a PC then you need a gaming mouse. While it’s true that there a number of titles where a controller is the better option, you’ll always find that first-person shooters, strategy games (real-time or otherwise) and MOBAs will either benefit from or require a mouse.

There is, however, a huge range of gaming mice to choose from, and picking one isn’t always easy - especially as deciding which is the ‘best’ mouse often comes down to personal preference. More often than not, the most popular gaming mice are produced by three companies: Razer, SteelSeries and Logitech.

This article looks at each gaming mouse manufacturer, analyzes two of their most popular products, and decides which company ultimately deserves the title of ‘King of the gaming mice.’ This covers several different types of mouse, including ambidextrous, wireless and genre-specific. There’s also an honourable mention for some of the other manufacturers who are challenging the top three's dominance in the market.

    I've used the Steelseries Rival, Razer Deathadder, Razer Mamba TE, and the Logitech G502 proteus core. I'd say the best for fps is the deathadder with a more snappy and responsive sensor than any other mouse out there (Including the logitech g303/g302) though they are all amazing and it comes down to personal preference.

    I use the Steelseries Raw! What drew me to it first was the lack of red, green or blue LEDs; it really fit in to the minimalist/low power level theme I had going on... which was ruined by the fact that my current ad hoc monitor stand is a couple of stacks of old anime DVDs.

    I adore my Razer Naga... but as an editing mouse, actually! I have each of the 12 MMO buttons programmed with common editing needs in mind like cut/copy/paste, 'save as', italics/bold, undo/redo, delete, and so on. It's amazing; they should really be marketing this thing to editors, bloggers, and academic writers! :D
