The DELUX M800 Wireless is a wireless gaming mouse with an ambidextrous shape and two buttons on its left side. It's light and feels well-built, although there's some wobble in the scroll wheel, and the mouse rattles when shaken. You can customize the RGB backlighting and remap all of its buttons using the dedicated DELUX M800 software compatible with Windows. It has a wide CPI range and a set CPI that you can adjust in increments of 100. Unfortunately, its sensor is very inconsistent and tends to undershoot the set CPI a lot more when moving the mouse slow than moving it fast. Also, its click latency is quite high and may not feel responsive enough for some gamers.

Our Verdict

7.7 Office/Multimedia

The DELUX M800 is good for office use. It feels well-built and is suitable with any grip type for almost all hand sizes, although people with extra-large hands may struggle with a palm or claw grip. You can use it wirelessly via its USB receiver, and you can remap all of its buttons using the dedicated software available on Windows. While you can't make customizations to the mouse on macOS, all the buttons still work. Unfortunately, its scroll wheel doesn't have L/R tilt buttons and can't unlock for free-scrolling. Also, it doesn't have Bluetooth support, and you can't pair it with more than one device at once.

Pros
  • Comfortable ambidextrous shape.
  • Feels well-built.
  • Good amount of programmable buttons.
Cons
  • Scroll wheel doesn't have L/R tilt buttons or free-scrolling.
  • No Bluetooth support.
7.6 Video Games (FPS)

The DELUX M800 is good for gaming. It's lightweight and has a sturdy-feeling, ambidextrous shape that's well-suited for any hand size using a fingertip grip. You can customize its RGB lighting and remap its buttons with its dedicated software. It has a wide CPI range, a CPI you can adjust in increments of 100, and a low lift-off distance. It has a flexible paracord-like cable and decent mouse feet, but the feet make a scratching sound when used directly on a desk. Unfortunately, its click latency is quite high and may not feel responsive enough to some gamers, and its sensor is very inconsistent.

Pros
  • Comfortable ambidextrous shape.
  • Feels well-built.
  • Flexible paracord-like cable.
  • Good amount of programmable buttons.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Very inconsistent sensor.
7.1 Video Games (MMO)

The DELUX M800 is decent for MMO gaming. While it doesn't have nearly as many buttons as dedicated MMO mice do, you can remap all of the buttons it does have. It feels well-built, and it's suitable with any grip type for almost all hand sizes. It has a low lift-off distance, a CPI profile switching button below its scroll wheel, a wide CPI range, and a CPI that you can adjust in increments of 100. Unfortunately, its click latency is high, and its sensor is very inconsistent.

Pros
  • Comfortable ambidextrous shape.
  • Feels well-built.
  • Flexible paracord-like cable.
Cons
  • Doesn't have as many buttons as MMO mice.
  • High click latency.
  • Very inconsistent sensor.
8.1 Ultra-Light Gaming

The DELUX M800 Wireless is a very good choice for fans of ultra-light gaming mice since it's lightweight. It has an ambidextrous shape with two buttons on its left side, and it's suitable with any grip type for almost all hand sizes. The included paracord-like cable is quite flexible, and the mouse feet are decent, but they make a scratching sound when used directly on a desk. Unfortunately, the latency is fairly high, and the sensor is very inconsistent.

Pros
  • Comfortable ambidextrous shape.
  • Feels well-built.
  • Flexible paracord-like cable.
  • Good amount of programmable buttons.
Cons
  • High click latency.
  • Very inconsistent sensor.
7.8 Travel

The DELUX M800 is very good for travel. You can use it wirelessly with its USB receiver, and it has a storage compartment for its receiver when not in use. It feels well-built, and it's light and somewhat compact, so it should fit well in most laptop bags. Unfortunately, it doesn't have Bluetooth support. Also, the customization software is available on Windows only, so you can't make customizations on macOS. That said, all the buttons still work.

Pros
  • Comfortable ambidextrous shape.
  • Feels well-built.
  • Has USB receiver storage.
Cons
  • No Bluetooth support.
  • 7.7 Office/Multimedia
  • 7.6 Video Games (FPS)

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

There are three different mice called the DELUX M800. There are two wireless versions called the M800DB: one with a PAW3335 sensor and one with a PMW3325 sensor; we tested the variant with the PAW3335 sensor. There's also a wired version with a PMW3389 sensor called the M800BU. We expect the physical aspects of these three mice to be similar, but the performance may differ significantly between each version. You can see our unit's label here.

Compared To Other Mice

The DELUX M800 is a budget gaming mouse with an ambidextrous-shaped body and two buttons on its left side, and it looks very similar to the Razer Viper Mini. Compared to similar wireless mice, this model falls short with its performance. Its click latency is quite high and doesn't feel as responsive as other options. Also, it has a very inconsistent sensor that tends to undershoot the set CPI more when moving the mouse slow than when moving it fast.

For other options, see our recommendations for the best cheap gaming mouse, the best FPS mouse, and the best wireless gaming mouse.

Razer Viper Mini

The Razer Viper Mini and the DELUX M800 Wireless are both FPS gaming mice, but the Razer is a wired model, and the DELUX is wireless. The Razer has a lighter weight, smoother-gliding mouse feet, and a sturdier-feeling build. Its sensor is more consistent, and its click latency is significantly lower. On the other hand, the DELUX has a wider CPI range. Also, thanks to its larger size, the DELUX is more suitable for people with medium or large hands using a palm or claw grip.

Razer Viper Ultimate

The Razer Viper Ultimate and the DELUX M800 Wireless are wireless gaming mice with nearly identical ambidextrous designs, but the Razer performs better. It has two buttons on each side, and you can set a HyperShift button to give you a second layer of controls. The Razer has smoother-gliding feet, a wider CPI range, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. Also, its sensor is much more consistent, and its click latency is significantly lower. On the other hand, the DELUX has a CPI profile switching button below its scroll wheel, which the Razer lacks. Also, it's marginally lighter.

Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED and the DELUX M800 Wireless are both cheap wireless gaming mice. The DELUX has a much lighter weight and a lower minimum CPI, and you can use it both wired or wirelessly. However, the Logitech has a lower lift-off distance, a significantly more consistent sensor, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a much lower latency, so you may prefer the Logitech for gaming.

Glorious Model D

The Glorious Model D and the DELUX M800 Wireless are both lightweight gaming mice, but the Glorious is a wired model while the DELUX is a wireless mouse. The Glorious has a more flexible cable, better quality mouse feet, much lower click latency, and a more consistent sensor. On the other hand, the DELUX has a wider CPI range and a sturdier-feeling build. The DELUX's ambidextrous shape is better suited for small hands using a claw or fingertip grip, while the Glorious's right-handed design is better suited for larger hands.

Glorious Model O Wireless

The Glorious Model O Wireless and the DELUX M800 Wireless are lightweight wireless gaming mice, but the Glorious performs better overall. The Glorious has a more flexible cable and smoother-gliding mouse feet. Performance-wise, it has a lower lift-off distance, a much lower click latency, a more consistent sensor, and a CPI that you can adjust more precisely in increments of 50.

Logitech G Pro Wireless

The Logitech G Pro Wireless and the DELUX M800 Wireless are wireless gaming mice with ambidextrous shapes, but the Logitech performs better. The Logitech has two buttons on each side and smoother-gliding mouse feet. Also, it has a wider CPI range, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. Its sensor is significantly more consistent, and it has a much lower click latency. On the other hand, the DELUX weighs less, and its paracord-like charging cable is more flexible than Logitech's rubber cable.

DELUX M625

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.

Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT

The Logitech G Pro X SUPERLIGHT and the DELUX M800 Wireless are both lightweight, wireless gaming mice, but the Logitech performs better overall. It has a significantly lighter weight, a CPI you can adjust more precisely in increments of 50, and a lower lift-off distance, so the sensor shouldn't track movements when you reposition your mouse. Also, it has a much more consistent sensor, and its latency is significantly lower. However, the Logitech doesn't have customizable RGB lighting like the DELUX does.

Redragon COBRA M711-FPS

The Redragon COBRA M711-FPS is a good wired gaming mouse with a right-handed shape, while the DELUX M800 Wireless is a good wireless gaming mouse with an ambidextrous shape. The DELUX connects either with its charging cable or wirelessly with its USB receiver. It's much lighter, it feels sturdier, and it has a more flexible cable. On the other hand, the Redragon has a higher maximum CPI, a more consistent sensor, and a lower click latency. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Redragon is more accommodating to small hands, while the DELUX is more accommodating to extra-large hands.

DELUX Game Titan M626

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.

DELUX M627

The DELUX M800 Wireless and the DELUX M627 are both wireless gaming mice. The M800 is an ambidextrous mouse with two buttons on its left side. It's significantly lighter, and it has a much more flexible cable. On the other hand, the M627 also has an ambidextrous shape, but it has two buttons on each side of the mouse. Also, it comes with magnetic thumb rests that you can attach to either side to give it a more ergonomic shape for either left or right hands. Performance-wise, they both have fairly high click latency, but the M800's sensor is more inconsistent.

Marsback Zephyr RGB

The DELUX M800 Wireless and the Marsback Zephyr RGB are good gaming mice. The DELUX connects either with its charging cable or wirelessly with its USB receiver. It's also lighter and has customization software, which the Marsback lacks. On the other hand, the Marsback feels sturdier and has a more flexible cable. It also has mouse feet that glide more smoothly, a more consistent sensor, a lower minimum lift-off distance, and much lower click latency. Both mice are suitable for all grip types and most hand sizes.

Ninjutso Origin One X

The DELUX M800 Wireless and the Ninjutso Origin One X are wireless gaming mice with comparable performance. The DELUX has a wider CPI range, and you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100, while you can only choose between four preset CPI settings on the Ninjutso. The DELUX also has customization software, which the Ninjutso lacks. On the other hand, the Ninjutso has mouse feet that glide more smoothly, a lower lift-off distance, and a more consistent sensor. Both mice are suitable for all grip types, but the Ninjutso is more accommodating to a wider range of hand sizes.
