Best Office Mouse : Price, Features & Reliability Compared

Mouse come under the everyday essential category. The office just can’t function without a proper mouse. If you thought they’re essentially only in shooting games, well, they’re very essential in a workspace as well. Below mentioned are top picks for best office mouse.

1. Logitech MX Anywhere 2

DPI: 1,600 | Interface: Bluetooth and 2.4GHz wireless (pairs with up to three devices) | Buttons: 7 | Ergonomic: Right-handed | Features: Scrolling wheel, Logitech Darkfield Laser Tracking, Unifying receiver, Easy-Switch tech, gesture function

  • Capable of being paired with three devices
  • Portable and compact
  • Free scrolling wheel for ease of use
  • Non-removable battery
  • No option/way to use it wired

The MX anywhere 2, is a bit smaller than their flagship MX master mouse which makes it a bit more portable and travel-friendly option. Although, I find that it will fit comfortably if you a slightly small hand. I’ve been using it in the office as the side mouse for over a month now.

You have to connect it via logitech’s dongle and you can pair it with up to three devices. It features low latency tracking which is further aided by logitech’s darkfield tech which ensures that the mouse will work on shiny surfaces as well.

Much like the MX master, the scroll wheel in this device can also spin freely if you depress it once. This means that you can easily scroll long pages without having to pinch the button with your fingers.

According to the company’s claim, they say that the battery lasts up to 60 days on a single charge. Since the company is claiming this, it might be a bit exhausted, but I don’t use the mouse very actively anyway.

2. Logitech MX Master

DPI: 1000 | Interface: Bluetooth (pairs with up to three devices) | Buttons: 5 | Ergonomic: Right-handed | Features: Hand-sculpted comfort contour, Speed-adaptive scroll wheel, Thumbwheel, Darkfield Laser Tracking, Dual Connectivity, Rechargeable battery

  • Adaptive scrolling, along with thumb wheel
  • Can connect to 3 computers
  • Expensive
  • Might look big in some people’s hands

Now this one is Logitech’s flagship mouse is bound to be mighty. It’s tailored for comfort, connects via both Bluetooth and USB dongle and can pair up to three devices. The battery lasts for 40 days. The charge is quite good as it goes from 0 charge to charge to last one day in 5minutes, plus you can use when it’s charging as well.

The scrolling wheel can be used for two purposes, either for click to click and for flawless speedy scrolling. There’s also a thumb wheel for side by side-scrolling that you can reprogram your buttons to work.

3. Anker Vertical Ergonomic Optical Mouse

DPI: 1000 | Interface: USB | Buttons: 5 | Ergonomic: Vertical | Features: No

  • Good to prevent RSI and awesome for RSI sufferers
  • Affordable Pricing
  • Thumb button doesn’t work on macs

This mouse has been designed for ergonomics. It sits vertically, so you hold it like you’re doing a handshake with someone. For the first few days, it might feel strange, but once you get used to it, it feels comfortable and doesn’t make your arms twist as usual mice do.

Find out the more ergonomic mouse from our post- Best Ergonomic Mouse.

Anker’s mouse sits vertically, so you hold it as if you’re shaking hands with someone. It feels strange until it doesn’t: it’s comfortable and doesn’t make you twist your arm as normal mice do.

Despite being ergonomic, it isn’t very expensive. Where you see most mice becoming curvy, anker has made their mouse with sharp bits to do something unique. But, in a way, it’s a good and affordable choice for people who already have or fear of getting RSI.

4. Apple Magic Mouse 2

DPI: 1300 | Interface: Bluetooth | Buttons: 0 | Ergonomic: Ambidextrous | Features: Multi-touch

  • Looks incredible
  • Multi-touch support
  • Expensive
  • Extremely uncomfortable

I’ve used cheap mice that were smaller than my hand, then I used apple’s mouse which is far worse than cheap options. But still, a ton of apple fanboys love the mouse as the second version is a big improvement as compared to the first generation.

They boast a trackpad sort of multi-touch surface. It’s very smooth around your desk, even smoother than the previous version. It also doesn’t need normal batteries as it comes with built-in batteries inside it. Although, the lightning port has been placed very inconveniently which means you won’t be able to see it if it’s charging.

5. Logitech Triathlon M720

DPI: 1000 | Interface: Bluetooth (pairs with up to three devices) | Buttons: 8 | Ergonomic: Right-handed | Features: 24-month battery life on one-AA battery, Sculpted design, Free spinning scroll wheel, Easy-switch tech, Logitech Options Software

  • Capable of pairing with 3 devices
  • Long battery juice
  • Not as fast and responsive as a wired mouse

Much like the MX master, the Logitech triathlon m720 can also pair up with up to 3 devices using Bluetooth, you can always switch between them with ease. The mouse is also much more affordable and very comfortable if you prefer to hold a small mouse.

Like other Logitech mouses in this list, it has a free-spinning scroll wheel, which means you zip through webpage or documents without issues. The battery life is massive and lasts up to 24 months before running out of charge.

The only thing that bothers me is that it’s not as responsive as other wired mice from Logitech.

6. Logitech MX Ergo Wireless

DPI: 512 – 2048 | Interface: Bluetooth and 2.4GHz wireless | Buttons: 8 | Ergonomic: Right-handed | Features: Trackball, USB dongle, Logitech ‘Flow’ software compatibility for use with up to three PCs simultaneously, micro USB charging, precision mode

  • Comfortable
  • Accuracy
  • No left-hand support
  • Limited tilt options

The concept of trackball mice aren’t new, they’ve actually existed far before conventional mouse.

If you purchase this mouse, be ready for a learning curve, you’ll have to learn about the number of buttons that are in the mouse, along with where they are placed as that has been changed dramatically.

For normal work, the mouse is very comfortable and efficient as well. But, if you are trying to use it for gaming, you must have an excellent hold on this mouse.

7. Asus ROG Gladius II

DPI: 12,000 | Interface: USB | Buttons: 6 | Ergonomic: Ambidextrous | Features: 50g acceleration, 1000Hz USB polling rate, removeable left and right buttons, Omron switches, RGB lighting

  • Feels premium
  • Robust design
  • Some features missing
  • Expensive

When it comes to gaming mice, they usually come loaded with a bunch of buttons. This while on the other hand only has 6 buttons which you can customize as per your requirements.

You can also control the light of the mouse although not everyone likes RGB lighting. There is a quick DPI switch button which will prove useful for a ton of gamers.

For a gaming mouse, it’s quite expensive since it doesn’t have as many features as the cheaper ones have in this price range.

8. Logitech M330 Silent Plus

DPI: 1,000 | Interface: 2.4GHz wireless | Buttons: 3 | Ergonomic: Right-handed | Features: Quiet buttons, 10-meter wireless connectivity, 2 x AA batteries (claimed 24-month battery life)

  • Almost no sound
  • Fewer Buttons
  • Compact
  • No option for Bluetooth

This is a great mouse, and I absolutely adore it personally because of its near silent operation. The mouse is very lightweight and makes no noise, almost feels like it was made for snipers and assassins. #justjoking ( or is it ? )

Without compromising with the budget, it provides a lot of feature and satisfaction.

9. Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600

DPI: 1000 | Interface: Bluetooth | Buttons: 2 | Ergonomic: Ambidextrous | Features: No

  • Very Very Affordable
  • Smaller than a normal mouse
  • Comfortable
  • #Basic

I really love the good old mouse from Microsoft which uses Bluetooth to connect wirelessly without dongles. One battery lasts as long as a whole year and it is fit for both right and left-handed people.

It doesn’t come with a ton of buttons on it, but it does have a sensor that can track small differences. If you need a comfortable, reliable mouse to use on the go, this is a great option.

10. Razer DeathAdder Chroma

DPI: 10,000 | Interface: USB | Buttons: 5 | Ergonomic: Right-handed | Features: lighting effects

  • Extremely comfortable
  • Extremely accurate
  • A bit gimmicky lightning
  • Bit flaky software

If a mouse is being named Death added, you know it is not going to aim at girls or normal users. It is a high-end mouse at a pretty affordable price point. One of the unique selling points of this product is the ability to display 16.8 million color light effects which are coupled by 10k dpi optical sensor.

It’s extremely fast, apart from being deadly accurate, and offers on the go sensitivity adjustment and looks pretty decent as well. If you don’t find it amazing yet, the majority of the professional gamers use and love the device already. It also has seven-foot cable which is handy if you have your monitor or computer plugged a bit away from your sitting position.
