Mouse Roundup Winter 2015

Mouse Roundup Winter 2015

In our final peripherals roundup for this year (you can find lnks to headsets and keyboard at the end of this article) we gather together some of the best mice currently available. Split into different categories it should help identify the best mouse for your needs (or budget). Welcome to our Mouse Roundup Winter 2015.

Mouse Roundup Winter 2015 – Best for multi buttons

Corsair Scimitar

It would be fair to say that Corsair have been hugely successful at entering new market segments. From PSUs to cases to peripherals they have consistently created quality products to add to their original memory business. With one of their latest mice they have created a super cool device which looks to offer loads of extra buttons… thats nothing new. What is, is that you can vary the position of them to better suit your thumb. Nice!

As for the key feature, those thumb buttons… flawless. The overall height of the buttons feels great on our thumb. The varied texture really helps to identify them and they all have  nice tactile click from the mechanical tech beneath. How does the variable feature work? Great. Its quick to change and the range of movement should be more than enough to suit the vast majority of users.

Mouse Roundup Winter 2015 – No frills done right

Mionix Castor

Sometimes you just want a nice simple mouse. No frills… ok maybe a couple of thumb buttons and quick access to DPI changes. Those are really basic features nowadays though, right? Good, glad we agree. So that’s where the Mionix Castor sits, a nice decent DPI, good build quality and the basic buttons needed. All at a good, competitive price.

The design and build quality of the mouse itself is also good. The Mionix note that the rubber/soft touch coating is four layers thick which should make it durable and the finish on our sample was flawless. We very much like the contoured right side which was very comfortable for palm grip and the angle of the left side was near perfect for our hand with that textured rubber giving a decent grip. The mouse weight is also good, a nice light mouse overall … … Speed was more than adequate for all our needs and we noticed no issues with various surfaces.

Mouse Roundup Winter 2015 – Best Wireless

Razer Mamba 16000 DPI

Although we have put the new Mamba in as our best wireless, it’s actually our favourite mouse of the year too. Crazy fast, good software, great build quality. The only caveat is that if you need lots of buttons then this isnt the device for you. It also has this funky feature where you can set the resistance of the mouse clicks and when charging on the desktop dock it looks phenomenal.

On the sensor front, the 16000 DPI sensor is ridiculously fast when at full. Most users are probably not going to go far above 12500… at least that’s where we started to notice our accuracy dropping off. Tracking was flawless throughout our testing.

Mouse Roundup Winter 2015 – Lefties and something different…

There is a lot of righty action going on so far… so it’s worth noting that for those who want a nice basic mouse in an ambidextrous design the Roccat Kova (2016 edition) is a potential option. Through their EasyShift tech it is possible to assign a whole bunch of functions to the buttons available (22 functions in total). And then if you just want something a bit crazy (in a good way) then consider their Nyth mouse. Not only does it arrive with a selection of interchangeable thumb buttons (support for 3D printing of your own too) and interchangeable side panel… its got a fin! Talk about going the extra nautical mile…
