What is a computer, without a computer mouse? Computer mice are important, and are unfortunately often neglected. Many people choose to buy a cheap, low-quality mouse, and do not realize what they are missing out on. A good PC mouse is more precise, more comfortable, and will let you work or play on your PC for a longer time without causing hand cramps. Really good mice are (relatively) affordable, with the vast majority of the best gaming mice being $60 to $70.

In this guide, you will find suggestions for three categories of mice: budget mice, where the quality and precision are balanced and the price is low (below $40); gaming mice, which have excellent performance from flawless sensors; and wireless mice (sometimes called cordless mice), which lack a cable and are couch-friendly. Take note that the best wireless gaming mouse (with perfectly flawless sensors) will cost a pretty penny.

For other PC peripherals, be sure to check our guides for Monitors and Keyboards. If you have any suggestions, comments, or criticisms, please e-mail us at or let us know in the comment section below.
