The HK Gaming Mira-M is an excellent lightweight gaming mouse. Its body has two side buttons on the left and honeycomb cutouts on the top, both sides, and the underside. It feels well-built, but the unit we tested has a slight wobble in the scroll wheel and noticeable side-to-side movement in the left- and right-click buttons. It has a comfortable, ambidextrous shape suitable for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes; however, small hands may find it difficult to reach both side buttons comfortably using a fingertip grip. Performance-wise, you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a broad range. It also has low click latency and a low lift-off distance, though some gamers may prefer them lower.

Our Verdict

7.2 Office/Multimedia

The HK Gaming Mira-M is satisfactory for office and multimedia use. Overall, it feels well-built and has a comfortable, ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types and almost all hand sizes. You can also reprogram all of the buttons using the customization software. Unfortunately, there aren't any wireless connection options, and the scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and has no free-scrolling mode. Also, the customization software is only compatible with Windows.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons and has no free-scrolling mode.
8.4 Video Games (FPS)

The HK Gaming Mira-M is a great FPS gaming mouse. It feels well-built overall and is very lightweight. Its ambidextrous shape is well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes, and it has a flexible paracord-like cable and feet that glide very smoothly. Performance-wise, it has a low click latency, low lift-off distance, and a wide CPI range. Unfortunately, you can only adjust the CPI by increments of 100.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Low click latency.
  • Quite lightweight.
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.
Cons
  • CPI is only adjustable in increments of 100.
7.2 Video Games (MMO)

The HK Gaming Mira-M is decent for MMO gaming, but it doesn't have nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO gaming mouse. That said, you can reprogram all of the buttons it does have using the customization software. It also feels well-built and has a comfortable, ambidextrous shape suitable for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes. Performance-wise, it has low click latency, a low lift-off distance, and a wide CPI range. Unfortunately, you can only adjust the CPI in increments of 100, and the scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Low click latency.
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.
Cons
  • Not nearly as many side buttons as a dedicated MMO gaming mouse.
  • CPI is only adjustable in increments of 100.
  • Scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt buttons.
8.6 Ultra-Light Gaming

The HK Gaming Mira-M is an excellent ultra-lightweight gaming mouse. It feels well-built and is very light. It has a comfortable ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes. However, small hands may not be able to reach both side buttons using a fingertip grip. It also has a flexible and lightweight paracord-like cable and high-quality mouse feet that glide smoothly on mousepads and desks. Performance-wise, you can adjust the CPI by increments of 100 within a broad range. It also has a low lift-off distance and low click latency, though they're not as low as other mice.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
  • Low click latency.
  • Quite lightweight.
  • Ambidextrous shape well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.
Cons
  • CPI is only adjustable in increments of 100.
5.3 Travel

The HK Gaming Mira-M is inadequate for travel use as it's bulky and may not fit in most laptop cases. There's no way to connect this mouse wirelessly, making it cumbersome to use in tight spaces like buses, trains, or planes. That said, it feels well-built and has a comfortable ambidextrous shape.

Pros
  • Feels well-built.
Cons
  • Wired-only.
  • Bulky; may not fit in most laptop cases.
  • 7.2 Office/Multimedia
  • 8.4 Video Games (FPS)
  • 7.2 Video Games (MMO)

There's a very slight wobble in the scroll wheel on the unit we tested. Also, the L/R click buttons have a noticeable amount of side-to-side movement. Several other online reviewers have also experienced this, and HK Gaming confirms it's a known issue. However, it didn't cause any problems during our testing.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The HK Gaming Mira-M we tested was Black. There are ten other color variants, including White, Blue Phantom, Bumblebee, Lavender, Massalia, Metallic Blue, Monza, Rose Quartz, Serenity, and Black/Orange variants. There's also a smaller version of this mouse, the HK Gaming Mira-S. You can see the label for our unit here.

Compared To Other Mice

The HK Gaming Mira-M is an excellent ultra-lightweight gaming mouse. It has a very similar shape to the Logitech G Pro Wireless, and it's almost universally suitable for all grip types and hand sizes. Unlike some mice with honeycomb designs, the HK Gaming Mira-M has cutouts on both the top shell and along the length of both side grips, which some users may find uncomfortable. However, there are adhesive grip stickers included that may remedy this. This mouse suffers from some minor, known quality control issues, including a slight wobble in the scroll wheel and noticeable side-to-side movement in the left- and right-click buttons. We experienced these issues on our unit; however, they didn't affect our tests and are unlikely to present any problems during regular use.

It also has a lower lift-off distance and a somewhat lower click latency. On the other hand, the HK Gaming has a slightly lower minimum CPI. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes. However, neither is suitable for small hands using a fingertip grip.

Razer Viper Mini

The Razer Viper Mini is a better ultra-lightweight gaming mouse than the HK Gaming Mira-M. The Razer is marginally lighter and feels sturdier. It also has a significantly lower click latency. You can also assign a HyperShift button to enable a secondary layer of commands. On the other hand, the HK Gaming has a wider CPI range and a more consistent sensor.
