    The best Razer mouse we've tested so far is the Razer Viper Ultimate. This wireless gaming mouse is fairly small and short and is well-suited for people using a fingertip grip or a claw grip. It has two side buttons on each side of the mouse for extra inputs, and the mouse feels very responsive thanks to its low click latency, whether it's used wired or wireless. The mouse is fully customizable inside the Razer Synapse software and features RGB lighting. Unfortunately, people with larger hands might have trouble having nice control over this mouse due to its short body.

    On the upside, the mouse is very lightweight, which should please FPS players that are looking for a very well-built mouse that still feels quick and precise. Additionally, the mouse comes with a nice charging dock station that also has RGB lighting. If you need to charge the mouse but still want to use it, you can, and the newest Razer cable is lightweight and doesn't create drag when moving, which is a nice improvement over previous mice. If you're more of a palm grip user, there's an ergo-shaped alternative, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate.

    The best Razer gaming mouse with the most versatility that we've tested so far is the Razer Naga Trinity. This wired mouse has a unique design that comes with three swappable side panels to allow you to customize your mouse depending on the type of game you're playing. The mouse has between 10 and 20 programmable buttons, depending on the panel you use. It has one dedicated for MMOs, one for MOBAs, and one that's better suited for FPS. While the mouse is well-suited for people with larger hands, unfortunately, those with small hands may have issues reaching some buttons no matter which grip type they use. The cable also is only decent, as it's quite rigid and stiff and maintains kinks from its packaging.

    On the upside, it has a wide, adjustable CPI range, and its click latency is one of the lowest we've ever measured. Overall, this mouse is great whether you play MMOs and want a ton of programmable buttons, or prefer something with a simpler two-side-button layout. The swappable panels hold on quite well and feel sturdy, and the ability to swap them quickly makes it great if you play a wide variety of games.

    The best Razer mouse in the budget category that we've tested so far is the Razer Viper Mini. Its shape and design are practically identical to the Razer Viper Ultimate, but a bit smaller and in a wired design. This mouse performs very well for the price with its excellent sensor and low click latency. It feels precise and responsive, on top of being very lightweight due to its size. Additionally, it features full RGB lighting and the build quality is great for such an affordable mouse.

    Some users with bigger hands might want to look at the original Razer Viper wired mouse since the Mini version might be a bit small. However, since it's one of the newest Razer mice, it has a new and improved cable that's lightweight and doesn't keep kinks like the original.

Compared to other brands


  • Great customization options. All of Razer's mice are compatible with their Razer Synapse software, allowing you to change your mouse's CPI, polling rate, button mapping, and RGB lighting settings if the mouse supports this. Unfortunately, the software isn't compatible with macOS, so unless your mouse has onboard memory, you'll be stuck with default button settings.
  • Great build quality. Razer mice typically feel quite well-built and durable. There are no loose or wobbly parts, and the buttons are clicky and responsive.
  • Stiff cable. Razer's wired mice typically use a stiff and rigid cable that maintains a lot of kinks and can be bothersome. It's worth noting that newer Razer mice seem to have a better cable that's a lot less stiff and rigid.

Overall, Razer makes good gaming mice that are some of the best-performing mice we've reviewed so far. They make a wide range of mice in different sizes, styles, and price points, so you should be able to find one that suits you regardless of your preferred style or budget. Unlike other companies that make mice for a wide range of uses, Razer focuses on gaming and all of their mice feature high performance and customizability, and most have RGB lighting.

Conclusion

Razer specializes in making great gaming accessories, and their mice are no exception. Their products are generally quite well-built and offer good performance and customization options; if you're looking for a good gaming mouse, you likely won't' go wrong with most options from Razer.
