The DELUX Game Titan M626 is a mediocre, budget gaming mouse. It has an ambidextrous shape with rubberized sides and two side buttons on the left. It has a solid-feeling, metal base plate, but the mouse rattles if you shake it, and both the scroll wheel and side buttons feel cheap. It's well-suited for all grip types. However, it's fairly large and only suitable for medium or larger hand sizes.

Note: We couldn't get the companion software for the DELUX Game Titan M626 to run, which affected several of our tests. We couldn't remap any buttons, adjust the RGB lighting, or change any sensor settings. Also, While the mouse has an advertised maximum polling rate of 1000Hz, we were locked to the default 500Hz. The mouse also has five default CPI presets you can cycle through using the CPI buttons behind the mouse wheel, but you can't customize these presets without the software.

Our Verdict

5.9 Office/Multimedia

The DELUX Game Titan M626 is inadequate for office and multimedia work. We couldn't get the companion software to work, meaning that we couldn't program any of the buttons, and it's a wired-only model without any wireless connectivity options. Unfortunately, its scroll wheel feels and side buttons feel cheap. The scroll wheel also lacks L/R tilt buttons and a free-scrolling mode. That said, it does have a comfortable ambidextrous shape well suited for all grip types. However, it isn't suitable for small hands.

Pros
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited to all grip types and most hand sizes.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and doesn't unlock for free scrolling.
  • Can't program any buttons as the software doesn't work.
6.2 Video Games (FPS)

The DELUX Game Titan M626 is mediocre for FPS gaming. It's heavy and has high click latency compared to other gaming mice. Also, its braided cable feels cheap and has poor flexibility. We couldn't get the customization software to work, so the mouse is stuck at a 500Hz polling rate. That said, it does have a low lift-off distance and a comfortable ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types. However, it isn't suitable for small hands.

Pros
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited to all grip types and most hand sizes.
  • Solid metal baseplate.
  • Low lift-off distance.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Quite heavy.
  • Polling rate is locked to its default of 500Hz.
5.8 Video Games (MMO)

The DELUX Game Titan M626 is inadequate for MMO gaming. It doesn't have nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO gaming mouse, and you can't reprogram any of them as the software doesn't work. Its metal baseplate is very solid, but the mouse rattles when you shake it, and the side buttons and scroll wheel feel cheap. Unfortunately, it has high click latency for a wired gaming mouse, and the mouse is stuck with its default 500Hz polling rate, again, because the software doesn't work. That said, it has a comfortable ambidextrous shape that's well-suited for all grip types. However, it isn't suitable for small hands.

Pros
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited to all grip types and most hand sizes.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Can't program any buttons as the software doesn't work.
  • Polling rate is locked to its default of 500Hz.
5.3 Ultra-Light Gaming

The DELUX Game Titan M626 is a poor ultra-light gaming mouse as it's much heavier than what we'd consider an ultra-lightweight mouse, and it has high click latency compared to other gaming options. Also, its braided cable feels cheap and has bad flexibility. That said, it has a comfortable ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types. However, it isn't suitable for small hands.

Pros
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited to all grip types and most hand sizes.
Cons
  • Braided cable feels cheap and has bad flexibility.
  • High click latency.
  • Quite heavy.
4.9 Travel

The DELUX Game Titan M626 is bad for travel as it's bulky and likely won't fit in most laptop cases. It has a solid-feeling metal base plate, but the mouse rattles if you shake it, and the two side buttons and scroll wheel feel cheap. It also lacks any wireless connectivity options, making it cumbersome to use in smaller spaces like buses, trains, or planes. That said, it has a comfortable ambidextrous shape suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.

Pros
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited to all grip types and most hand sizes.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Bulky; likely won't fit in most laptop cases.

Lighting Color RGB

The DELUX Game Titan M626 has RGB lighting in the scroll wheel that reflects the current CPI settings, though we can't confirm this as the customization software doesn't work. There are lighting zones in the logo on the palm rest and in the border around the bottom of the mouse. We can't confirm whether these zones are independently programmable, again, due to our issues with the software.

While the DELUX Game Titan M626 has an advertised maximum polling rate of 1000Hz, we had to use the default polling rate of 500Hz as we couldn't get the customization software to work to adjust it. We couldn't set a custom CPI, but you can cycle through five default CPI presets using the two CPI buttons behind the mouse wheel. The default CPI settings are 1000, 1600, 2000, 3200, and 5000. Also, the sensor on our model is fairly inaccurate. It undershoots the set CPI by 9.54% during slow cursor movements and 17.2% during fast movements.

While we could install the companion software for the DELUX Game Titan M626, we couldn't get it to run despite trying multiple different driver/software versions on multiple computers. There are reports of some users finding working versions online, but this isn't something we can confirm.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The DELUX Game Titan M626 we tested is black, and there are no other color variants. There are reports of identically named variants with either an Avago A3050 sensor or possibly a PixArt PMW 3310 sensor, but this isn't something we can confirm. The unit we tested has a PixArt PMW 3325 sensor. We expect any models with other sensors to perform differently. If you have this mouse and it doesn't correspond to our review, let us know in the discussions. You can see the label for our unit here.

Compared To Other Mice

The DELUX Game Titan M626 is a mediocre, budget-level gaming mouse with an ambidextrous shape similar to the Razer Mamba, with a pronounced middle hump. Unfortunately, it's heavy compared to other wired gaming mice with so few features. It also has high click latency for a gaming mouse, and some aspects of its build quality feel cheap, including its mouse wheel and side buttons. We also couldn't get the customization software to run, which means we couldn't remap any buttons, adjust the lighting effects, or change sensor settings from their default. This mouse has many problems, and it's unlikely to be a good fit for most people. There are plenty of better options at this price point.

For more options, see our picks for the best mouse, the best wired mouse, and the best gaming mouse.

Razer Viper Mini

The Razer Viper Mini is a better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX Game Titan M626. The Razer is much lighter and feels sturdier. It has a much more flexible cable and mouse feet that glide more smoothly. It also has a wider CPI range, an adjustable CPI, and much lower click latency. On the other hand, the DELUX is suitable for all grip types but isn't suitable for small hands, while the Razer is best suited for smaller hands. Both mice have customization software, but we were unable to get the software for the DELUX to run, which affected some of our tests.

Glorious Model D

The Glorious Model D is a better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX Game Titan M626. The Glorious is much lighter and has a significantly more flexible cable. It also has mouse feet that glide much more smoothly, a wider CPI range, an adjustable CPI, and much lower click latency. On the other hand, the DELUX has two CPI buttons behind the scroll wheel, while the Glorious only has one. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but neither mouse is well-suited for small hands. Both mice also have customization software, but we couldn't get the software for the DELUX to run, which affected some of our tests.

Razer DeathAdder Essential

The Razer DeathAdder Essential is a much better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX Game Titan M626. The Razer is significantly lighter and feels sturdier. It has a wider CPI range, a higher maximum CPI, and a lower click latency. You can also set a HyperShift button to enable a secondary layer of controls. On the other hand, the DELUX has two CPI buttons behind the scroll wheel, which the Razer lacks. Both mice have customization software, but we were unable to get the software for the DELUX to run, which affected some of our tests.

DELUX M800 Wireless

The DELUX M800 Wireless is a good wireless gaming mouse, while the DELUX Game Titan M626 is a mediocre wired gaming mouse. The M800 is significantly lighter and connects wirelessly with its USB receiver. It has a much wider CPI range and an adjustable CPI. On the other hand, the M626 has a more consistent sensor and marginally lower click latency. It also has two CPI buttons behind the scroll wheel, while the M800 only has one. Both mice have customization software, but we couldn't get the software for the M626 to run, which affected some of our tests.

Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G502 LIGHTSPEED is a better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX M626. The Logitech has a right-handed shape with a thumb rest and five more buttons overall, including one additional side button. It also has a scroll wheel with L/R tilt buttons that unlocks for free scrolling. Performance-wise it has a much wider CPI range, an adjustable CPI, a lower lift-off distance, and a much lower click latency. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but neither is suitable for small hands. Both mice also have customization software, but we couldn't get the software for the DELUX to run, which affected some of our tests.
