In case you are in spite of everything uninterested in dwelling that trackpad existence, then, you may well be searching for a brand new mouse that does not essentially think you are a hardcore gamer whose largest precedence is stacks of serve as keys and flashing lighting fixtures. Actually, maximum people simply need one thing compact we will be able to use at the transfer or one thing correct however easy to be used at a table.
We now have taken an in depth take a look at the marketplace and here is our roundup of mice that can assist you believe what mouse is very best for you.
In search of a gaming mouse? Take a look at our information to the most productive gaming mouse as a substitute
Logitech MX Master 3
Logitech only released the MX Master 3 recently, but it’s quickly rocketed up to the top of our list — this is an absolutely superb mouse used by at least two of the Pocket-lint team. It’s weighty in the right way, while still retaining a gliding feeling of control that’s hard to beat.
It’s also wireless, which isn’t completely essential, as this list will demonstrate, but does help with the feeling that you can use it in whatever way you like. The ergonomic design is easy to hold, the clicks of its buttons are satisfying but easily done; it’s the whole package. The only hesitation is that it won’t work for left-handers, an all-too common malaise in the world of the computer mouse.
You can use it with Logitech’s Unifying USB receiver or with Bluetooth.
Logitech MX Anywhere 3
If you want a more compact mouse that still has a lot of the brilliant touches that make the MX Master 3 so good, the Anywhere 3 could be perfect. It’s great for smaller hands or a workplace that moves around a lot.
You also get superb ergonomics, great clicking and an uneatably good scroll-wheel, just like on the larger version. It’s available in a few colours to suit your taste, and battery life is stellar too, rechargable by USB-C.
Logitech G203 Lightsync
It won’t be the last on this list, but while the G203 Lightsync might be branded as a gaming mouse, we think it’s subtle enough and usable enough to believe that tag.
The fact that it’s wired keeps the price really low for this device, and the performance you get from it is hard to argue with. It’s lightweight and glides nicely, and has six buttons that you can reprogram if needed, for example, to open your most-used applications. Although it does have some LED lighting that is a little “gamery”, it’s pretty subtle and can be controlled to suit your taste, and the white version we’ve been using is particularly handsome.
Microsoft Intellimouse Pro
That’s right, your eyes don’t deceive you. Chances are you remember the above design from somewhere, whether it’s a school IT lab, an office, or a front desk. Well, wherever that place was, their bosses haven’t scrimped on equipment, because despite its austere looks, the Intellimouse is a seriously great mouse.
With a subtle but effective ergonomic curve, and no unnecessary bells and whistles, there’s a reason why Microsoft’s mouse design hasn’t changed much down the years.
If you’re working remotely, or if you have a working commute — or even if you just take the odd work trip, you’ll know the value of portability. Logitech, which you might be noticing as a bit of a repeat feature on this list, has a great option for those who want a more diminutive, easily transported mouse.
The Pebble is nice and tiny, but still really comfortable to use, and has Bluetooth for easy pairing. It’s got a great clicking action for such a small mouse, and is really silent, which we have a lot of time for. If you’re in the need for a mouse that travels, Logitech has got you covered here, and at a really impressive price, too.
Anker Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse
If you’ve ever worked in a sizeable office environment, you’ve probably glimpsed something like the image above in the far-off distance – there’s always someone in each company who’s discovered the benefit of a vertical mouse.
Anker’s got one of the best in the business, for an extremely reasonable price, if you’re interested in trying out a new orientation in life, and getting your hand relaxed. Some people find that the difference is night and day, and that any discomfort they had eases away instantly, so if you’re not getting on with a traditional mouse, this could be the answer.
Razer DeathAdder Essential
We know that we opened this list with a promise to steer clear of putting a pure gaming mouse on it, but the simple fact is that the DeathAdder, from gaming experts Razer, is a genuine classic of the mouse world. It’s been around for years now, with only slight refinements, and that’s because it’s super comfortable, and reliable.
If it’s good enough for gamers to use for hours on end, it might just suit for your work, and if you drop into a game of Modern Warfare at lunch you might just have an advantage. Also, importantly, it’s a low-key mouse that doesn’t cram loads of extra buttons in. Instead, it concentrates on working well and staying comfortable.
