Component Watch: Five Of The Best Gaming Mouse

7/21/2013 9:11:11 AM

In the market for a great gaming mouse with which to hone your skills? Step this way, ladies and gentlemen…

A bad workman always blames his tools, apparently. While that may well have more than a whiff of truth, you can bet that Michelangelo’s David would’ve looked a bit less polished if all he’d had to work with was a sledgehammer. Sometimes, to bring out your true skills, you need the tools capable of channeling them – and that, at least for us, is enough justification to warrant buying a high precision, fully customizable gaming mouse.

If that sounds like a good idea to you, you’re in luck: for this week’s Component Watch brings you five of the best gaming mouse deals on the market today.

Deal 1: Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse

Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse

Fancy spending an insane amount of money on a mouse? Then we’ve got some news for you! The Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse is built like a stealth tank and has the kind of precision engineering that’d make F1 engineers jealous, fully justifying its price tag. As well as ventilation to help cool your hand during gaming (yes, really), you also have the ability to raise and lower the body’s height and angle to suit your personal preferences. There’s also a profile- switching Z-key, aluminium base and 8200dpi sensor, and no question whatsoever that it’s one of the most advanced input devices you’ll ever use!

Deal 2: MadCatz R.A.T. 3 V2 Gaming Mouse

MadCatz R.A.T. 3 V2 Gaming Mouse

With its high-tech design (something of an acquired taste, well admit), cutting-edge form factor and a host of programmable action buttons, the 3500dpi R.A.T 3 gaming mouse is guaranteed to impress. It’s switchable between four DPI levels for on-the-fly balancing of sensitivity and speed, and has enough configurable elements to make this a mouse that any gamer can feel lucky to use. If those specs don’t’ convince you of that, maybe the braided USB connector and high-fidelity gold-plated plugs will!

Deal 3: Logitech G400 Optical Gaming Mouse

Logitech G400 Optical Gaming Mouse

The Logitech G400 is packed with gamer-friendly features: eight buttons, a high-resolution 3600 DPI sensor that can be tweaked on-the-fly for easy switching between precise and super-fast inputs, and durable construction with buttons tested through one million clicks. It’s got all the features you could want out of a serious gaming peripheral, but with a price and design that’ll make it suitable for day-to-day use as well.

The DPI is adjustable between 800 to 6000, while a weight-tuning system and seven programmable buttons leave even more room for customization. All that and a 24-month warranty, for 20% off retail? Champion!

Deal 5: Cooler Master CM Storm Recon Gaming Mouse
