Microsoft's Sculpt Comfort is a dongle-free Windows wireless mouse that delivers superior ergonomics at a rock-bottom price.
The HP x4500 is a reliable and comfortable mouse, but it's just not quite as good as some rival models you can buy for less.
The Logitech M705's adaptive laser sensor and sculpted body will make your wrist happy for less than the cost of a few lattes.
With more shortcut buttons than you'll know what to do with, the Logitech M510 is the best budget mouse for anyone tired of dragging their fingers around a trackpad.
The Zone Touch Mouse works as a traditional three-button mouse with the added benefit of the glass touch strip for select Windows 8 gestures. We just wish the touch features were a little more precise.
Executives dying for an ultraportable mouse to go with their Windows 8 or Android tablet will find a beautiful companion in the Wedge Touch Mouse, but it's a lot to pay for a pretty basic set of functions.
Logitech is relying on appealing look of its unique Cube Mouse to justify its price, but it should offer a few more useful navigation or presentation features.
The HP X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse frees up USB ports by pairing through a wireless adapter, but its hypersensitive touch dial and accident-prone design make it frustrating to use.
We like the Microsoft Touch Mouse for its thoughtful, complementary gestures that simplify the experience of moving in and around Windows 7 applications.
Not everyone needs a living-room mouse, but for those who do, the Logitech Couch Mouse M515 provides a well-thought-out option, and for a reasonable price.
Thanks to its unique, reliable Wi-Fi-based connection methodology, the HP Wi-Fi Mobile Mouse is easy to recommend to mobile Windows 7 PC users who need more available USB ports.
It's not the most elegant mouse, nor does it feel worth the $130 price, but Razer's Naga Epic and its built-in, 12-button keypad could help gamers and others gain mastery over MMOs and other applications with complicated control schemes.
The Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 is the most expensive gaming mouse we know of, but its vast customizability, unique features, and strong performance make it a worthwhile expense for demanding PC gamers.
The latest Gyration Air Mouse Elite is a welcome relief from "mouse arm" and works well as a presentation device for intermittent use, but it lacks the flair of other pointing solutions. You'll certainly find satisfaction in the Gyration Air Mouse Elite if you're just getting into the gyroscopic market, but if you want the best of the best, we recommend spending more on the Logitech MX Air.
The Orochi, Razer's first gaming mouse designed for notebooks, combines a small size and Bluetooth connectivity with a feature set normally seen only on larger gaming mice.
Apple's new wireless Magic Mouse gets a sleek makeover and even has multitouch controls, but it's better as a portable laptop companion rather than a full-size desktop accessory. The swiping gestures add interactivity to Web browsing and media, but the awkwardly narrow single button design leaves us reaching for better mice from Logitech and others.
The Anywhere Mouse MX bears Logitech's multiconnective Unifying receiver and glass-tracking Darkfield laser, but $80 is too much for a portable mouse--especially when the Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 costs half the price for almost the same features.
There's quite a lot to like about Logitech's new Gaming Mouse G500, but with a competing mouse from Microsoft offering its own set of features, gamers now have some choices to make. The G500 will appeal to performance-driven shooter fans. The choice is less clear for other kinds of PC gamers.
