    The best Razer mouse with a wireless connection that we've tested so far is the Razer Viper Ultimate. This impressive gaming mouse feels very well-built and is well-suited for a fingertip or claw grip thanks to its fairly low-profile and short design. Should you choose to use this mouse wired, the included cable is Razer's newer micro-USB cable which is much less rigid and stiff than the cable shipped with older Razer mice. However, it's easy to always keep the battery charged up, as the mouse comes with an easy charging cradle as well. The performance of the mouse is outstanding, with a low CPI error, a very wide and adjustable CPI range, and extremely low click latency.

    Unfortunately, this mouse is quite expensive, and some may not be ready to make that kind of investment in a mouse. It also isn't the best choice for people with very large hands, for claw or palm grip, while smaller hands will have a tough time with a fingertip grip. Some people also may not like its straight, ambidextrous design. If you prefer a more ergonomic, slanted shape, check out the Razer Basilisk Ultimate, which is basically the same mouse but with a different shape. Overall, the Viper Ultimate is among the best mice we've tested and is likely to please anyone who doesn't mind spending a few extra bucks to get the best Razer mouse.

    The best Razer 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. It has a wide, adjustable CPI range, and its click latency is one of the lowest we've ever measured.

    Unfortunately, while the mouse is well-suited for people with larger hands, those with small hands may have issues reaching some buttons no matter which grip type they use. The cable is also only decent, as it's quite rigid and maintains kinks from its packaging. Overall, however, 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 with a smaller, very lightweight, and wired design. This mouse performs very well for the price with its excellent sensor that feels precise and responsive and its low click latency. It feels very well-built for the price, and unlike other mice that weigh around the same, it doesn't have a honeycomb design through its body, and it still features RGB lighting.

    Unfortunately, its max CPI is much lower than most Razer mice, and it's adjustable by steps of 100 instead of 50. It also may be a bit too small for people with larger hands. If you find it uncomfortably small, you may want to check out the original Razer Viper wired mouse, though it uses Razer's older cable which is much more stiff and rigid. Overall, the Mini is an impressive mouse, especially considering the price.

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 have a significantly better cable that's a lot less stiff, and is actually among the best cables we've tested.

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 primarily 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.
