Cheap gaming mice round-up: budget mice

You can buy an excellent mouse for little money - but do watch out!


Roccat Kiro

Thanks to the removable side plats the Roccat Kiro is suitable for both lefties and righties, while retaining an ergonomic shape. The buttons present on both sides are easily pressed on accident by your ring finger as a result of this however. In terms of size, the mouse is on the smaller side, however its weight is average, rather than low. If you so desire, you can attach a modular side plate.

We quite like the software, as they've clearly thought it out very well. The Swarm Cloud functionality adds nice additions for exchanging profiles and monitoring using apps, however it is completly optional, in contrast to Razer's software.

It might cost less than 45 pounds, however even with this price in mind, the performance disappoints. We measure a clearly above-average lift-off distance and the optical PixArt ADNS-3050 sensor might not suffer from acceleration, however it disappoints in terms of maximum speeds.
