The DELUX M625 is a wired gaming mouse with a right-handed shape, two side buttons on the left, rubberized grip panels on both sides, and an additional button on the top of the mouse to the left-hand side of the left-click button. It feels well-built, though there's a slight rattle when you shake the mouse. It's well-suited for all grip types but isn't suitable for small hands using any grip type. Performance-wise, it has a very consistent sensor, and you can adjust the set CPI by increments of 100 within a very wide range. It also has a low minimum lift-off distance, though some may prefer it lower. Unfortunately, it's heavy, and it has high click latency for a gaming mouse.

Our Verdict

7.2 Office/Multimedia

The DELUX M625 is decent for office and multimedia work. It feels well-built and has a comfortable, right-handed shape well-suited for all grip types. However, it isn't suitable for small hands. It also has an impressive number of programmable inputs. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any wireless connection options, and its mouse wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and doesn't have a free-scrolling mode.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Comfortable, right-handed shape suitable for all but small-sized hands.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and has no free-scrolling mode.
7.5 Video Games (FPS)

While the DELUX M625 might be a good FPS gaming mouse for some thanks to its great build quality and very comfortable design, unfortunately, it's quite heavy and has high click latency for a gaming mouse. Also, its braided cable is somewhat stiff, and its mouse feet don't glide as smoothly as some FPS mice. That being said, its right-handed shape is well-suited for all grip types and all but small hands. Its sensor is also very consistent, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a very wide range. It also has a low minimum lift-off distance, though some gamers may prefer it lower.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Comfortable, right-handed shape suitable for all but small-sized hands.
  • Very consistent sensor.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Heavy.
7.2 Video Games (MMO)

The DELUX M625 is satisfactory for MMO gaming, but it doesn't have nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO gaming mouse, and it has high click latency. Nevertheless, you can reprogram almost all of its buttons using the companion software, and it feels sturdily built. It's also suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. Performance-wise, it has a very wide CPI range, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100. The lift-off distance is also low, though not as low as on some gaming mice.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Comfortable, right-handed shape suitable for all but small-sized hands.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Not nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO mouse.
7.1 Ultra-Light Gaming

The DELUX M625 scores decently for ultra-light gaming, but it's significantly heavier than what we'd consider a lightweight mouse, and it has high click latency for gaming. It also has a somewhat stiff braided cable, and its mouse feet don't glide as smoothly as some gaming mice. That said, it feels well-built and has a comfortable, right-handed shape that's well-suited for all grip types and all but small hands. Performance-wise you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a very broad range, and it has a low minimum lift-off distance, though some gamers may prefer it lower.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Comfortable, right-handed shape suitable for all but small-sized hands.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Heavy.
5.2 Travel

The DELUX M625 is inadequate for travel as it's fairly bulky and may not fit in most laptop cases. It's also a wired-only mouse that you can't connect wirelessly, making it cumbersome to use in tight spaces like buses, trains, or planes. That said, it feels well-built and has a comfortable right-handed shape suitable for all grip types and all but small hands. It also has onboard storage, meaning that you can use your custom settings on computers without the software installed.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Bulky; may not fit in most laptop cases.

All default button functions on the DELUX M625 work in both Windows and macOS. However, the button to the left of the left-click button acts as a redundant left-click button by default. As there isn't any compatible software for macOS, Mac users can't reprogram this or any other button.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The DELUX M625 we tested is black, and there are no other color variants. You can see the label for our unit here.

Compared To Other Mice

The DELUX M625 is a good, entry-level wired gaming mouse with a comfortable ergonomic shape very similar to the Razer DeathAdder V2. It has an additional button on the top of the mouse on the left side of the left-click button, which is a fairly unusual feature for an FPS gaming mouse. Unfortunately, It's heavy, and some gamers may prefer a more lightweight option. It also has higher click latency than most gaming mice, even considering its budget price point.

For more recommendations, check out our picks for the best wired mouse, the best gaming mouse, and the best cheap gaming mouse.

DELUX M800 Wireless

The DELUX M800 Wireless is a wireless gaming mouse with comparable performance to the DELUX M625, which is a wired gaming mouse. The M800 is significantly lighter and, despite being a wireless mouse, has a much more flexible paracord-like charging cable. On the other hand, the M625 has an additional programmable button on the left side of the mouse next to the left-click button. It also has a much more consistent sensor and a higher maximum CPI, and somewhat lower click latency. However, the click latency on both mice is very high, and the difference between the two may not be noticeable.

Razer Viper Mini

The Razer Viper Mini is a better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX M625. The Razer is much lighter and feels sturdier. It has a more flexible cable, mouse feet that glide more smoothly, and much lower click latency. You can also assign a HyperShift button that enables a second layer of controls. On the other hand, the DELUX has a much higher maximum CPI and less CPI variation. The Razer has an ambidextrous shape and is much better suited for smaller hands, while the DELUX has a right-handed shape and is suitable for all but small hand sizes.

Glorious Model D

The Glorious Model D is a better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX M625. The Glorious is significantly lighter and has a more flexible paracord-like cable. It also has mouse feet that glide much more smoothly on mousepads and desks and much lower click latency. On the other hand, the DELUX feels sturdier and has a higher maximum CPI, a more consistent sensor, and an additional programmable button next to the left-click button. Both mice are suitable for all grip types, but the Glorious is suitable for small hands using a palm grip, while the DELUX isn't.

Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED is a good wireless gaming mouse with an ambidextrous shape, while the DELUX M625 is a good wired gaming mouse with a right-handed shape. The Logitech connects wirelessly with its USB receiver and uses a single AA battery. It has mouse feet that glide more smoothly, a more precisely adjustable CPI, a lower lift-off distance, and a much lower click latency. It also has customization software compatible with Windows and macOS, while the DELUX software is only compatible with Windows. On the other hand, the DELUX has a much higher maximum CPI, and RGB lighting, which the Logitech lacks.

Glorious Model O

The Glorious Model O is a better wired gaming mouse than the DELUX M625. The Glorious is significantly lighter and has a much more flexible cable. Its mouse feet also glide more smoothly. Performance-wise, it has a lower lift-off distance and a much lower click latency. On the other hand, the M625 has a wider CPI range and a lower minimum CPI. It also has an additional programmable button on the left side of the left-click button. The Glorious has a right-handed shape, while the DELUX has an ambidextrous shape. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes. However, neither is suitable for small hand sizes.

DELUX M627

The DELUX M625 is a good, right-handed wired gaming mouse, while the DELUX M627 is an okay ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse. The M625 is marginally lighter and feels sturdier. It also has a somewhat more flexible cable and a higher maximum CPI range. On the other hand, the M627 connects wirelessly with its USB receiver and has a rechargeable battery. It has a lower minimum CPI and includes magnetic finger rests for transforming the mouse into a right or left-handed configuration. The two mice have the same click latency over a wired connection, but the M627 has a higher click latency when used wirelessly.

Redragon COBRA M711-FPS

The Redragon COBRA M711-FPS and the DELUX M625 are both good, wired gaming mice with comparable performance. The Redragon has two additional programmable buttons and lower click latency. On the other hand, the M625 is marginally lighter and feels sturdier. Both mice are well-suited for all other hand sizes and grip types, but only the Redragon is suitable for small hands using a palm grip.
