Logitech G Pro Wireless review: The best wireless gaming mouse ever made

One of the biggest complaints often levied at wireless gaming mice is that they're simply too slow and heavy compared to their wired rivals. Despite being free of snagging cables that somehow manage to get in the way of everything at all times, that liberty often comes at the cost of latency and reliability, with the extra disadvantage that they've now got to carry a…

MSI Clutch GM60 review: A flexible gaming mouse that ultimately falls a bit flat

As £70 / $69 gaming mice go, the MSI Clutch GM60 is arguably one of the most adaptable mice I've seen in a while. It's ambidextrous for starters, making it a good pick for right and left-handed PC peeps alike, but you also get not one, but two pairs of magnetic side covers, an extra USB cable (one braided, one rubber) and an additional top…

Logitech G502 Hero review: Faster, stronger, but it is better?

As you might have guessed from the name, the Logitech G502 Hero is a slightly fancier version of Logitech's classic £50 / $50 G502 gaming mouse. For an extra £30 / $30, you can bag yourself a 16000 DPI sensor as opposed to a 12000 one, left and right clickers with a 50 million click endurance rating rather than 20 million, and an additional two…

Razer Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux review: How much?

It's been quite a while since we've had a wireless mouse in for review at Castle Shotgun, and for that I apologise. To rectify the situation, I've got Razer's Mamba + Firefly Hyperflux combo in today, which is absolutely 100% the name of a mouse and mouse mat and definitely not a binned subtitle for Kingdom Hearts 3. The main attraction here is Razer's aforementioned…

Steelseries Rival 310 review: The best gaming mouse under £50

These days, it seems like any half-decent gaming mouse requires at least fifty of your fine British pounds or sixty of your finest American dollars. That's still a lot more than I'm willing to fork out in most cases, but sometimes, I admit, it can be worth the extra expense - such as the Asus ROG Gladius II (£68 / $80) and its handy, dedicated…

Feature: Return of the king, or nostalgia gone too far?

Microsoft Classic Intellimouse review: A noughties comeback

Nostalgia for utilitarian late-90s/early noughties PC accessories: truly, this is the darkest timeline. And I am its villain, for it was I who felt a tingle of absurd fondness when Katharine announced that the Microsoft Classic Intellimouse, a physically almost identical remake of the Windows gang's once-ubiquitous USB mouse, had arrived atop her trembling tower of plastic and cabling. It was I who proffered the…

HyperX Pulsefire Surge review: A petite gaming mouse undermined by fussy software

The HyperX Pulsefire Surge has had a bit of a rocky ride to shop shelves. You might have caught a brief glimpse of it earlier in the year before it was pulled due to a fault in the design of the two main click buttons coming too close together, but now it's back, retooled and ready for action in all its rainbow LED glory. Let's…

Feature: The holy trinity of gaming mice

Razer Naga Trinity review: Three gaming mice in one

I'll admit to doing a bit of a double-take when I saw how much the Razer Naga Trinity goes for these days. £100 / $90? On your bike, lad. But then I realised the Naga Trinity isn't really just a single mouse. With its trio of interchangeable side plates, this is three mice in one, giving you the option of two, seven or twelve extra…

Steelseries Sensei 310 review: An all-round ambidextrous mouse

Esports smee-sports. Whatever it says on the box about the Steelseries Sensei 310 being "engineered" for your favourite arena-based festivities, you should know this ambidextrous mouse is still a great point and clicker in its own right. Whether you're indeed planning to use it for a spot of Plunkbat chicken dinner-ing, or frantically buying ten thousand copies of Yakuza 0 on Steam for everyone because…

Alienware cut cords with their first wireless headset, plus a new mouse

It's been almost ten years since Alienware released their last headset, but now Dell's gaming division are diving back into the heady world of RGB lights, chunky microphones and oversized audio drivers with their very first wireless gaming headset, the appropriately named Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset. Or the AW988 for short. Oh, and they've also released a new mouse to go with it that has interchangeable side plates in case you…

Move over ROG, Asus’ new TUF mouse, keyboard and headset are in town

PC gaming's E3 is finally here. No, not that other PC gaming show that's taking place next week at E3 proper. I'm talking about Computex 2018, Taiwan's yearly tech bonanza where the weird and wonderful of PC gaming hardware is shown off to the world for the first time. Sometimes these bits of hardware actually see the light of day. Sometimes they don't. I suspect Asus' new entry-level TUF peripherals,…

HP Omen 15 gets Intel Optane Memory refresh, plus new ear-cooling headset, mice and keyboard peripherals

HP unveiled a mother lode of new Omen bits and pieces this morning, including a 2018 refresh of their Omen 15 gaming laptop with Intel Core i5+ and i7+ processor options (the + bit meaning they come with Intel's super fast Optane Memory gubbins). HP also announced a swathe of new mice and keyboard peripherals for PC, plus the world's first gaming headset with something HP's calling 'active…

Hands on with Acer’s new Predator Cestus 510 mouse and Aethon 500 keyboard

When you think of Acer's Predator range, laptops and monitors are probably the first things that come to mind. This year, however, Acer are going all in on PC gaming peripherals, as they've just unveiled a brand-new mouse and keyboard at their New York press conference - the highly-flexible Predator Cestus 510 and the blue mechanical switch-themed Aethon 500. And I've been plastering my grubby…

Fnatic Clutch 2 review: The right-handed version of the (still right-handed) Flick 2

After making a strong impression with their pair of Streak mechanical keyboards and lightweight, symmetrical Flick 2 mouse, Fnatic are rounding out their second gen peripheral line-up with the decidedly right-handed gaming mouse, the Clutch 2. Featuring the same Pixart 3360 sensor, Omron switches and more or less all the same specs as its Flick sibling, is this one better [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"] material?…

Fnatic Flick 2 review: DPI on the X and Y

If two new mechanical keyboards weren't enough for you, esports giants Fnatic have also released a new pair of mice to go with them, the first of which I've got here: the Flick 2. As its name implies, this is the second generation of Fnatic's Flick mouse, now with a newer, grippier grip, a more refined symmetrical shape and a better, more accurate sensor. Let's…

Feature: A mouse that (literally) carries its weight

Steelseries Rival 600 review: Worth its weight in gold?

How much would you normally spend on a mouse? £10? $20? Maybe even £30 if I'd been particularly stung (or should that be bitten?) by a dodgy mouse in the past, but it would have to be a really good one - possibly even the bestest [block id="604479" title="Best gaming mouse"] ever - for me to consider spending more. Indeed, if you thought shelling out £70 for the…

Asus ROG Pugio review: Lefties rejoice

Finally, a proper ambidextrous gaming mouse (of the mice I've looked at, anyway). After the sort-of-but-not-really symmetrical designs of the Steelseries Rival 110 and the HyperX Pulsefire FPS, the Asus ROG Pugio is the real deal, offering right and left-handed comfort in equal measure. It's quite expensive as gaming mice go, coming in at £62 in the UK and $90 in the US, but much…

Asus ROG Gladius II review: An expensive gaming mouse you probably won’t mind shelling out for

I'd normally balk at the idea of spending over £30 on a mouse. I've never been one for owning flashy gizmos or the latest and greatest, so the thought of forking over more than double that for something like the Asus ROG Gladius II (which currently costs just over £70 in the UK and $95 in the US) would, ordinarily, be positively horrifying. Thankfully, the…
