As far as hardware preferences go, all gamers have peculiar likes and dislikes for every piece of gaming hardware. Particularly in choosing the quality of a Gaming Mouse, it is of utmost importance to every gamer. A good gaming mouse is absolutely essential for the user due to the features that the mouse has to offer. It provides a gamer the extra touch of precision and comfort for excellence in performance and skill boost.
But wait! There are a lot of gaming mice that claim to deliver quality performance, but in reality, only a selected few provide what they promise. Choosing the wrong one only leads to loss of money and compromises the gameplay performance. For this sole purpose, we have already sorted and listed out the best gaming mice in Singapore.
We’ve chosen our top three according to their best overall performance, how much they weight, and also their connectivity as the top parameters.
But what should you look for in a gaming mouse?
- Regular Mouse vs Gaming Mouse
The difference between a regular and a gaming mouse is as vast as it could get. A regular mouse is equipped with very little or no enhancement features at all. It means that a regular mouse can only operate as stock equipment whereas a gaming mouse can have numerous performance enhancement features. These features include sensitivity adjustments, extra customizable buttons, weight adjustments, special lightings, and even special sensors for smooth movements.
- What to look for in a gaming mouse?
A gaming mouse can have many different features according to the brand or the build of a particular mouse. Commonly, gamers look for optimum sensitivity, faster response time, less friction, increased comfort, and build quality of the mouse. Other features include scroll smoothness, extra macro buttons, and even RGB lighting for an aesthetical spectrum.
- What is DPI and IPS in a gaming mouse?
DPI or Dots Per Inch implies the number of pixels that a cursor moves across the monitor. In simple terms, it refers to the sensitivity of the mouse. Whereas, IPS or Inches Per Second means that the mouse is good at tracking the movements of your hand during fast maneuvers. This results in precise movements without any betrayals or stutters.

This allows gamers to freely customize and adjust keys according to the user which makes gaming experiences much better. The adjustable weights and balance tuning were what got us really fascinated due to its working functionality.

Moreover, the mechanical switch button tensioning makes every click clean and crisp with the highest response rates possible. To add to it, the subtle touch of RGB really enhances the feel of the gaming mouse.
