In the last few years, together with the significant jump in technology, gaming has become more and more addictive, but in order to enjoy the new games and be competitive online with your friends, you need not only a good personal computer or laptop, but also a good gaming mouse, because the mouse will stay at the foundation of any gaming experience.
If you play FPS games, or if you play RPGs, or the abundant MMO-RPG games that saturated the gaming market after the success of the World of Warcraft, you will need a good gaming mouse to stay on top, to be competitive and, of course, to own your enemies.
And when I talk about some of the best gaming mice on the 2011 market, I can’t stop thinking at 2 particular models – the Naga Razer, and the G9X from Logitech, a manufacturer that needs no presentation in the gaming mice and keyboard world.
Let’s try to have a closer look at these beauties. First, the Logitech mouse, because I have a personal preference for this manufacturer that never let me down.
The Logitech G9X Laser Mouse is a dedicated gaming mouse, but its functionality cannot be restricted only to games. This mouse can memorize up to 5 different user profiles, for different games or other computer activities, each with a different LED color, and, also very useful, the grips are interchangeable for either supreme comfort in long RPG sessions or for lightning quick fingertip control in FPS games. A standard on today’s best mice market is the possibility to change the dpi, in this case from 200 to 5000, making it easy to go from extreme slow motion precision for scoring headshots in a FPS, to lightning fast maneuvers, with just the touch of a button. This mouse also has adjustable weight, for better handling.
And now the Razer Naga, a supreme gaming accessory for any MMO addict, a gaming mouse made with WoW in mind. On its surface you will notice immediately no less than 17 MMO-optimized buttons, for different skills and in game actions, including 12 buttons thumb grid. Even if it was conceived for MMO and not FPS players, the Naga has a precision of 5600 dpi and a 3.5G Laser Sensor that makes it ideal really for any game you can think about. Its scroll wheel can memorize 24 individual click positions for combos, and the mouse is covered in an anti-slip rubber coating, ideal for always having a good grip in the middle of the action.
Both these mice are excellent built for their purpose, ultimate gaming performance, speed, precision and accuracy. If you want to become a professional gamer or even if you play for fun, these mice will make up for every cent spent to get them, but remember that the mouse has to be coupled with one of the many laptops for gamers on the market for it to show its true potential.
