Picking the best gaming mouse is a more difficult task today than it was a decade ago. The playing field has been somewhat levelled thanks to improvements in sensor and wireless technology, and there are more competing products than ever. But it's still possible to make the right choice if you know what it is that you want from a gaming mouse, whether that's the sensor precision needed to hit those sick Valorant or Fortnite flick-shots, or a heap of programmable buttons for all your World of Warcraft macros.

You have to juggle comfort, ergonomics, performance, reliability, specs, and, as always, aesthetics.
