What it is: A receiver uses a USB port to connect a mouse to a computer wirelessly using radio frequency.
When it matters: If your computer doesn't have Bluetooth to connect a wireless mouse.
Battery Type
What it is: The type of battery that the mouse uses. Usually alkaline batteries (AA/AAA) or embedded rechargeable batteries. Rechargeable batteries usually recharge by plugging the recharging cable in a USB port, while AA alkaline batteries have to be replaced or charged with an external device.
Use When Charging
What it is: If you can use the mouse while it's charging.
When it matters: When you can't take the time to stop using your mouse while it's charging, like when you're at work.

- Control
Score components:
- Sensor
What it is: The sensor is one of the components that translate the mouse movement into a cursor movement.
Sensor picture
Sensor Technology
What it is: The combination of light and sensors used to process and detect movement on a surface. Laser mice have the ability to work better on glossy surfaces or glass because of their ability to look deeper into the surface. As a trade-off, the sensor can take too much information off the surface, causing inconsistencies in the movement of the cursor, especially at high speed. Optical (LED) mice generally offer a more consistent cursor movement, but can be hard to use on glass or a glossy surface.
When it matters: When gaming, an Optical (LED) sensor usually offers more consistency in the mouse movement. On the other hand, if you're looking for a mouse that works across a wide range of surfaces, laser is usually a better choice.
Works On Glass
What it is: The ability to use the mouse on a glass surface.
When it matters: If you use a glass desk or table when using your computer mouse.
- Click Latency
What it is: How long it takes for the mouse's input to be registered by the computer once the mouse click switch is pressed down.
When it matters: When gaming, every delay in your input could impact the outcome of an event in games. A low input latency is an important aspect of competitive gaming.
Click Latency: Receiver
What it is: The latency obtained when connected via the wireless receiver. How long it takes for the mouse input to be registered by the computer once the mouse click switch is pressed down.
When it matters: When you plan to game using the mouse receiver.
Good value: <18 ms
Click Latency: Bluetooth
What it is: The latency obtained when connected via Bluetooth. How long it takes for the mouse input to be registered by the computer once the mouse click switch is pressed down.
When it matters: When you plan to game using the mouse via Bluetooth.
Good value: <18 ms
Click Latency: Wired
What it is: The latency obtained when connected with a wire. How long it takes for the mouse input to be registered by the computer once the mouse click switch is pressed down.
When it matters: When you plan to game using the mouse with a wire.
Good value: <18 ms
- Performance
What it is: The overall specification of the mouse, showing its performance and limitation.
Minimum CPI (DPI)
What it is: The minimum CPI (DPI) the mouse can be set to. CPI (count per inch) or DPI (dots per inch) represent the number of steps the mouse sensor reports when moving one inch. A lower CPI (DPI) has the effect of reducing the distance the cursor moves onscreen when moving the mouse a fixed distance. We display the manufacturer's value. If the CPI (DPI) isn't given by the manufacturer, we test it and round the value to the closest hundredth.
When it matters: When your comfortable CPI is low and you want to know if the mouse can achieve it.
Good value: 400 CPI (DPI)
Maximum CPI (DPI)
What it is: The maximum CPI (DPI) the mouse can be set to. CPI (count per inch) or DPI (dots per inch) represents the number of steps the mouse sensor reports when moving one inch. A higher CPI (DPI) has the effect of augmenting the distance the cursor moves onscreen when moving the mouse a fixed distance. We display the manufacturer's value. If the CPI (DPI) isn't given by the manufacturer, we test it and round the value to the closest hundredth.
When it matters: When your comfortable CPI is high and you want to know if the mouse can achieve it.
Good value: 2000 CPI (DPI)
CPI (DPI) Adjustment Steps
What it is: The minimum gap between each CPI (DPI) adjustment settings.
When it matters: When you want to precisely adjust the CPI (DPI) of your mouse to your preference.
Good value: 50 CPI (DPI)
CPI (DPI) Error
What it is: The error percentage between the set CPI (DPI) and the actual CPI (DPI). The CPI (DPI) used for this test is the closest value possible to 1000 DPI (CPI) moved on a 1-inch distance. A negative value represents a mouse that undershoots its set CPI (DPI). A positive value overshoots the set CPI (DPI). In the case where the manufacturer doesn't state the mouse's CPI (DPI), the CPI error is set to N/A because of a lack of a reference value.
When it matters: When gaming, having a near 0 CPI (DPI) error assures you of the accuracy of your preferred CPI (DPI) setting.
Good value: Between -5% and 5%
Mouse Acceleration
What it is: With all acceleration settings of the operating system turned off, this is the mouse's ability to move the cursor the same distance on-screen when moving the mouse at high or low speeds on a fixed distance.
When it matters: When you're looking for consistency in your cursor movement, usually when playing a game.
Lift Off Distance
What it is: The distance between the mouse and the surface where the sensor can't detect movement anymore. Values are in increments of 1.2 mm due to the fact that we use CD thickness to measure it.
When it matters: When you're used to a low lift-off distance, switching to a high lift-off distance could be bothersome when you're trying to lift the mouse to re-position it without any unwanted cursor movement. When gaming, a low lift-off distance is usually better so you don't have to lift your mouse high to re-position it without any cursor movement.
Good value: 2.4mm or lower
Maximum Polling Rate
What it is: Polling rate represents the amount of time per second the mouse reports its position to the computer.
When it matters: When playing a fast-paced game, a higher polling rate offers a smoother cursor movement.
Good value: 500 Hz or higher

Buttons Activation
What it is: The technology that's used to register a mouse click. Most mice use mechanical switches to register a click, but some mice can register commands with tactile functions similar to a trackpad or with optical technology.
When it matters: It depends on your preference. For example, tactile activation can provide useful gesture options, but less click activation feedback.
Number Of Buttons
What it is: The number of buttons the mouse has. If the number of buttons can be changed, this number represents the maximum number of buttons the mouse can have at once.
Number Of Programmable Inputs

When it matters: In certain games or software, having extra programmable inputs directly on your mouse can increase your efficiency.
Good value: 2 inputs or more
Profile Switching Button
What it is: A button that serves as a selector of profiles that you can usually make with the mouse software. This allows you to switch the function of programmable buttons depending on the software you use.
When it matters: When you use a lot of different software that needs different settings of programmable buttons.
Good value: Yes
CPI (DPI) Switching Button
What it is: A button that lets you easily switch the sensitivity of the mouse with the use of a button.
When it matters: When switching CPI (DPI) on the fly to do different tasks or actions is important to you.
Good value: Yes

What it is: If the mouse has a horizontal wheel that allows you to scroll the horizontal scroll bar.
When it matters: When you work or use software that can have a long horizontal scroll bar.
Horizontal Wheel Incremented
What it is: Whether the scroll wheel is incremented or not.
