Gaming Mice

FPS games (First Person Shooter), should opt for an optical mouse. Here's why: * The precision and accuracy of an optical mouse make every move count. * Improved ergonomical designs make playing for hours on end more comfortable and less straining. * More buttons with a better arrangement make accessing various in-game features as easy as it is on a gamepad.

What to Look For

* '''Tail or no tail''' ** Wired mice are great if you play for many hours at one sitting because they don't require batteries or recharging. Running out of juice in the middle of game play is a major downer. ** If your routine is to play in spurts on an hour or less, then a wireless mouse may be the right choice for you since it eliminates the cumbersome cord and allows you to play from the comfort of your couch should you wish to do so. ** Cordless mice are best when combined with an easy to swap battery (Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse). ** Keep in mind that cordless models will cost a bit more than their wired counterparts. * '''High Resolution''' ** To get the most precision and accuracy possible, look for high movement resolution and movement detection technology. ** Getting technical, 2000 dpi could soon be taking the market by storm. * '''Compatibility''' ** First, make sure the mouse is compatible with your computer operating system, whether it be Mac or Windows based. ** Second, if you are a lefty, check to see if the mouse is not just meant solely for right-handed gamers. * '''Weight''' ** You want a mouse to be heavy so that it maintains solid contact with the desk at all times. ** Some models, specifically the Logitech G5 Laser Mouse, provide a way to adjust weight the mouse weight to improve its performance depending on the gamer's preferences. * '''Extras''' ** Programmable buttons, adjustable sensitivity levels and tight scrolling are extras to keep an eye out for. ** Consider pairing a gaming mouse with a gaming keyboard for even more enhanced play. On a side note, there has been talk about n52, which are basically a hybrid keyboard and precision mouse in one. These are unconventional and definitely something to try out if you are into speed and versatility.
