What to look for in a gaming mouse

Don’t be confused by the marketing gimmicks mouse manufacturers bombard you with when shopping for a new gaming mouse. Let us tell you which statistics you need focus on.

DPI/CPI – Dots per inch and Counter per inch

This measurement shows how far the cursor will move relative to how far you move your mouse. For example, if I use 800 DPI and move my mouse an inch, my cursor will move 800 pixels on the screen. Contrary to popular belief, higher potential DPI does NOT increase accuracy, and is generally a marketing tool. Furthermore, most sensors, even top of the line sensors like the PixArt PMW3360, have smoothing at higher DPIs which can hinder precision.

Max Tracking Speed

This term is fairly self-explanatory. This is the maximum speed, usually measured in inches per second (IPS), that a mouse can move before it loses tracking. This loss of tracking is known as a spin-out, and usually sends your in-game crosshair either straight to the sky or laser-focused at the floor.

Mouse Acceleration

Mouse acceleration is the bane of FPS gamers. In layman’s terms, as the mouse moves faster, the DPI will increase on an exponential curve. This can be very useful for RTS players, who frequently need to zoom around the map quickly, but can mess up the muscle memory of people who primarily play shooters.

Acceleration Rating

This is NOT to be confused with the above acceleration. Acceleration rating is the maximum real-life acceleration, measured in Gs, that a mouse can handle before losing tracking. As with max speed, loss of tracking can cause spin-outs and stutters.

Polling Rate / Refresh Rate-Measured in Hertz (Hz)

This is the speed at which the sensor will update its position. For example, a mouse set at 1000Hz will update its position 1000 times per second. Most top sensors can reach 1000Hz easily, and a few are even boasting 2000Hz.

Lift-Off Distance

This is the maximum distance above the mousepad that a sensor can reach before it loses tracking. While this is technically measured in millimeters, I find it much easier (and more intuitive) to measure LOD in terms of DVDs.

Tracking Speed / IPS (inches per second)

Mouse Sensors

There is a lot of important weighing in on the sensor that a gaming mouse has and there are some clear winners and losers. We’ve written a short guide to weeding out the best and the worst in mouse sensors right here.

Size & Weight

The size and weight of a gaming mouse can have a significant direct impact on your performance as a gamer. However, it isn’t as simple as one size for him and one size for her. There are many factors at play when selecting a specific size range and weight selection depends on various factors such as your budget, wired or wireless and size.
