Gaming mice often have a bunch of features that differentiate them from regular mice. This can be an ultra-sensitive sensor, an ergonomic design or in the case of this list, side buttons.
In this article, we’re bringing you the top seven gaming mice with side buttons that you can buy right now.
DragonWar Thor ELE-G9
Manufacturer: DragonWar | Price: $14.20 (INR 1,032)
If you’re into big mice, you’ll definitely like this one. The Thor ELE-G9 is a rather large but very comfortable gaming mouse with a turbo button and of course, two very pleasant to press side buttons.
The sensor of the mouse is pretty accurate and goes as high as 3200 DPI. You also get a braided coble and some pretty sweet RGB. Fun fact, this was the first gaming mouse I ever bought,
Manufacturer: Logitech | Price: $16.40 (INR 1,200)
Another mouse that I’ve used for a long time(over four years) and loved very much, the G300s is the opposite of the G9. It’s small, lightweight, and has five buttons apart from your regular mouse click buttons that you can map to anything you want.
But buttons aren’t exactly on the sides, but rather on the edges of the mouse click buttons so it does take some getting used to in the beginning. However, once you’re there, the sheer convenience this can offer is unmatched. The Logitech Gaming Software lets you control all aspects including the very subtle RGB as well.
Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury
Manufacturer: Logitech | Price: $31.42 (INR 2,299)
If you’re looking for a very light mouse with a very fast sensor that has more buttons your fingers can reach, your search stops here.
Apart from the blazing-fast sensor that goes up to 4000 DPI and the very ergonomic design, the mouse has 5 side buttons that you can map to anything in the Logitech G-Hub software and make full use of.
Logitech G502 Hero
Manufacturer: Logitech | Price: $58.60 (INR 4,295)
If you’re looking for a step up from the 402, the G502 hero comes in roughly the same design but the buttons are slightly better placed and feel more premium. There’s also a freely scrolling mouse wheel that supports horizontal scrolling and of course, fully customisable RGB lighting all around.
The mouse comes with the ultrafast Hero 16k sensor and has the same ergonomic shape as its predecessors.
Razer Basilisk V2
Manufacturer: Razer | Price: $102.46 (INR 7,499)
Albeit expensive as we’ve come to know most Razer products to be, the Basilisk V2 offers amazing value for the money.
To begin with, you get a really premium mouse with a rubberised matte finish that feels really good to touch. The scroll wheel has horizontal scrolling with customisable resistance, Chroma RGB and of course, 11 programmable buttons with three on the side.
MSI Clutch GM08
Manufacturer: MSI | Price: $27.12 (INR 1,985)
The MSI Clutch is a very simple, straightforward mouse that is built like a tank from the ground up. You can change DPI on the fly and the mouse has an adjustable weight system as well.
Then, of course, you’ve got two programmable side buttons that you can set to anything in-game and use them to your advantage.
Manufacturer: Lenovo Legion| Price: $17.06 (INR 1,249.)
Lenovo’s gaming branch, Legion has been making some pretty decent hardware under the radar for some time now and their M200 mouse is a testament of their quality.
The mouse is sturdily built, with no spot left without the splashy RGB theme. You get on the fly DPI switching on four levels up to 2400 DPI. The braided cable simply adds to the appeal. The two buttons on the side are quite tactile to the push and will come in real handy in games.
