Gamers with very large hands, such as myself, can find it difficult to locate a gaming mouse that fits us perfectly. Most gaming brands like Razer would almost only account for the ordinary or average gamers because that’s where they’ll be able to make most of their profits from. I’m extremely pleased to announce, however, that I’ve managed to find a fantastic mouse that not only has excellent ergonomics but it’s been tweaked so that it can be used for most of the games that are available now. Even MMORPGs!
This gaming mouse that I’ve been raving on about is the Etekcity Precision S200 mouse. The 2 main mouse buttons on the front clicks out loud but not too loud that it’ll annoy others around you. This is one important factor to look out for in a mouse because most of the mice that I’ve used in the past will almost always end up with the front 2 buttons permanently sunk in after months of use. This current mouse that I’m using, on the other hand, has lasted me over 5 years already and while you can see that the logo and rubber grip have worn down a little bit, its practical utility is still as strong as ever. Its wireless feature is also what makes it so interesting in addition to its price. Compared alongside some of the best wireless gaming mice that I know of, the S200 can certainly hold its own against the rest, in terms of its price and functionality. This wireless mouse for gaming has everything that you could want both as an MMO or FPS gamer.
In short, the build quality of the Etekcity S200 is simply amazing and is easily one of the best wireless mice especially if you were to view it objectively based on its price. Priced at less than $20, you would expect a mouse like that to last you only months before it starts showing some wear and tear but not this one. The Etekcity has still not degraded to the point where I’d have to switch to a new mouse. In fact, I’m still contemplating whether or not I should get a new but exact model that I’ve grown to love.
Another popular choice: The Sensei v2 by SteelSeries
Another gaming mouse that I think is worth mentioning would be the SteelSeries Sensei v2 that only came out about 2 years ago, if I’m not mistaken. The v2 is basically an improved version of its predecessor, which means some of the kinks and flaws have been ironed out completely while its DPI is boosted even further to compete with the other top gaming mice. Already at an impressive 12,000 DPI, it’s certainly one of the best gaming mice and I can’t imagine what improvement the newer model will have over the original. The LED under the DPI button has several colors to it and can be changed at your whim.
The biggest criticism that I have regarding this particular gaming mouse is that the middle mouse button (i.e the scroll wheel), clicks a little too easily. What I mean to say is that you might accidentally click it without meaning to and while that may not pose a problem to many gamers (because you can just as easily unbind the function attached to that button), it’s still a gaping problem that I hope SteelSeries will fix some time in the future. As of now, the 3 top mice in my books certainly include the S200 by Etekcity and the Sensei v2 by SteelSeries.
