Best mouse in the house

After dogs, the mouse is man’s best friend. More people spend more time with their mouse than with their dog. It is no wonder, then, that a mouse owner will argue until the end of the earth that his/her mouse is the best. Especially gamers.

Computer mouses, like dogs, come in all shapes and sizes, some with long tails, some without, some with short snouts and some with long snouts. And the mouse experts will have you believe that each have their own “personality.” 

Computer mouse plural

Before we discuss the best mouse in the house, let’s tackle the debate on the plural for a computer mouse.

The dictionaries state both mice and mouses to be correct. Thus, computer mice or computer mouses. However, it is also acknowledged that the plural for computer mouse is computer mouse, thus instead of referring to ten computer mouses the correct plural might be “ten computer mouse.”

But since you can use only one mouse at a time, we’ll try to see which ONE mouse is the best.

The best mouse in the house

In no particular order –

Razer Ouroboros : 8200dpi 4G Dual Sensor system, using both laser and optical sensors; fast and accurate, with a dedicated DPI clutch trigger. Razer says their design was “inspired by the Lamborghini Reventon and the Batmobile” for a “structural, edgy chassis.”

The images are linked to the specification sheets of each mouse. Once you’ve had a look at them you’ll probably agree that they’re all great-looking mouse (or mouses or mice) with impressive specs. But which one is the best?

You can read as many mouse reviews as you want but because your hand has an unique shape you’ll only know which mouse is the best for you once you tried them all. Choose wisely – once you adopt a mouse it’s hard to let it go.

A mouse for mere mortals

In the meantime, millions of us mere mortals will be clicking along happily on the plain, cheap, 3-button mouse with the rubber grips, the trusty Microsoft Comfort Mouse 3000.
