Tired of black peripherals? You’re not alone. High-quality white gaming mice have become more common as manufacturers release new mice to meet gamers’ desires for more colorful peripherals. It’s a crowded enough market that you may need some help to pick out the best white gaming mouse for your needs. If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Our list covers a wide range of performance and price points, from premium Logitech and Razer mice to mid-range and high-value offerings from companies like Cooler Master and Glorious. It’s a strong list, and one that we’re confident will have something for everyone. Let’s get started!
Our Picks for Best White Gaming Mouse
|Weight||63 grams (2.22 oz)|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||4.41 x 2.24 x 1.41 inches|
|Sensor||Logitech HERO 25K|
|DPI Range||100 - 25,600|
|Battery Life||70 hours|
The Logitech G Pro X Superlight is a fixture on our mouse lists, and for a good reason: it’s an excellent mouse. Its top-class sensor, brilliant shape, and ultra-lightweight body (especially for a wireless mouse) make it a tough act to beat.
The most impressive aspect of the G Pro X Superlight is that Logitech has managed to squeeze a 70-hour battery into a 63-gram mouse. That’s light even for a wired mouse, but it’s outstanding for a wireless mouse, especially one without honeycomb cut-outs.
But it’s not just the weight that makes the Superlight an excellent mouse. It has a great shape, which we’d call safe and “just right.” It’s slightly short compared to some other mice, but that arguably makes it better for claw or fingertip grip users. I certainly found the shorter length more comfortable than the Razer Viper, despite the latter being a better fit on paper.
Beyond the weight and shape, the G Pro X has the features you’d expect on a high-end mouse. Logitech’s HERO 25K sensor is nigh-on perfect, with no tracking or spin-out issues, while the 2.4 GHz wireless connection is reliable and has lower latency than even some wired mice. Performance-wise, there’s nothing to complain about here.
However, the G Pro X Superlight isn’t perfect. It lacks the DPI switch button common to most other mice, which may be a deal-breaker if you use it regularly. The Superlight also lacks onboard memory and still uses the less reliable Micro-USB connection for charging and wired use. We’d have liked to see a USB-C port at this price.
Those minor quibbles aside, we think the Logitech G Pro X Superlight is one of the best gaming mice ever made. Its high price makes it a relatively poor value proposition, but anyone after the best white gaming mouse would do well to start here first.
|Weight||74 grams (2.61 oz)|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||4.99 x 2.27 x 1.49 inches|
|DPI Range||400 - 20,000|
|Battery Life||70 hours|
The Razer Viper Ultimate is a top-end gaming mouse with all the features you’d want in a premium product. You get low-latency wireless connectivity, a high-quality sensor, and high-endurance optical switches, all wrapped up in an ambidextrous, lightweight body.
And when we say “ambidextrous,” we mean it: the Razer Viper Ultimate is designed for left- and right-handed use. Many of the top mice have symmetrical shapes, but the Viper is one of the few with thumb buttons on both sides. So if you’re a left-handed user who wants thumb buttons in the proper place, this is likely your best bet.
There’s a lot to like about the Razer Viper on top of the ambidextrous design. Razer’s Focus+ sensor is excellent, equal to the top offerings from Logitech and PixArt. Combine the sensor with the relatively light 74-gram weight, and you get a mouse that’s great to use in all sorts of games.
The Razer Viper’s Razer Optical switches are also highly durable, with a claimed 70 million click lifespan. They don’t have the “click” of traditional buttons, which might be a downside for some of you, but that’s a small price for that much longevity. And they still feel quite good, if not quite as crisp.
If you’re a right-hander shopping at the high end, you’ll likely have to choose between this and the Logitech G Pro X Superlight. Both are on par technically, with the only significant difference being the shape and how well it fits your hand and grip style. The Razer Viper Ultimate is also arguably better value since it includes a charging dock.
Overall, the Razer Viper Ultimate is an excellent white wireless gaming mouse that goes toe-to-toe with the best. I prefer the Logitech’s shorter shape, but I’d happily use the Razer Viper Ultimate daily if the G Pro X Superlight didn’t exist. There’s also a wired version if you want to save some money.
|Weight||60 grams (2.2 oz) without battery|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||4.25 x 2.24 x 1.49 inches|
|Sensor||Razer 5G Optical|
|DPI Range||100 - 18,000|
|Battery Life||Up to 950 hours (Bluetooth) / 450 hours (2.4 GHz)|
Razer’s updated Orochi V2 is a wireless mouse that splits the difference between low-end battery-powered wireless mice and high-end gaming-focused options. It combines a high-quality sensor and switches with AA and AAA battery support for some of the longest battery life you’ll get from a wireless gaming-grade mouse.
Razer claims that the Orochi V2 can get up to 950 hours from a standard AA battery via Bluetooth or a lower (but still excellent) 450 hours when connected via Razer’s 2.4 GHz wireless solution. That’s outstanding for a gaming mouse, but it does make the Orochi V2 heavier than most of its wireless competitors.
Yes, Razer claims a “less than” 60-gram weight, but that’s without a battery. An average AA battery weighs around 20 grams (0.7 oz), so you’re looking at an 80 to 85-gram weight for a fully-laden Orochi V2. Respectable, but a noticeable bump over the 60- to 70-gram weights of other wireless white gaming mice.
But even if the weight isn’t exactly top-tier, the Orochi V2 has enough under its hood to make it a great option. The Orochi’s 5G Optical sensor is a PixArt 3369 unit, a top-end unit. You also get Razer’s second-generation mechanical switches, rated for an impressive 60 million clicks.
As usual, the Orochi V2 has fully programmable buttons via Razer Synapse 3. However, unlike some of Razer’s other mice, the Orochi V2 supports the company’s HyperShift function. HyperShift lets you program two separate layers, with one button to switch between the two (like the Function key on a mechanical keyboard). This makes it a more versatile mouse than most, and perfect if you need some quick macros for your work.
If you need a long-lasting travel mouse with legit gaming cred, the Orochi V2 is worth checking out. It might not be the best gaming mouse outright, but its price, universal shape, and long battery life make it a solid general-purpose wireless mouse.
|Weight||70 grams (2.46 oz)|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||4.80 x 2.21 x 1.50 inches|
|DPI Range||50 - 19000|
Yes, you could argue that the wired Razer Viper is the best wired white gaming mouse. And we would agree. But the Endgame Gear XM1r is a strong contender, with its high-quality switches and great shape. It’s worth checking out if you’re after something a bit different.
The Endgame Gear XM1r has an interesting shape: it’s similar to SteelSeries’ iconic Sensei (understandable since the XM1r is by the same designer) but has a flatter profile. It’s also narrow at the bottom and relatively wide at the top, an interesting combination of traits that makes it great for fingertip and claw grips.
It feels like a unique halfway point between an ambidextrous mouse and the more sculptured shapes of ergonomic mice. It likely won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but we think it’s worth trying if you want something slightly different.
Endgame Gear put a lot of work into the XM1r’s switches. The XM1r uses pre-sorted Kailh GM 8.0 switches with a claimed 80 million actuation lifespan. That’s impressive and better than even Razer’s contactless optical switches. Endgame Gear also claims that the XM1r uses “analog technology” to minimize click latency. However, the real-world benefits are minimal to nonexistent and likely limited by the standard 1000 Hz polling rate.
One potential issue with the Endgame Gear XM1r is its cable, which may be too flexible. If you often pull off large flicks, you may find that the XM1r’s cable flops around a bit too much. It’s also potentially less durable, as there’s much less shielding and protection around it. But that’s not likely to be an issue unless you’re overly rough on your hardware.
The Endgame Gear XM1r is a great wired white gaming mouse that’s a compelling alternative to the usual brands and shapes. If you’re bored of the usual shapes or want to change things up, check this mouse out.
5. Glorious Model D
|Weight||69 grams (2.43 oz)|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||5.04 x 2.32 x 1.65 inches|
|Max DPI||400 - 12,000|
Glorious’ Model D is something of a modern classic, combining an ultralight design with an ergonomic, relatively large shell perfect for palm grippers and those with large hands. If you’re not a fan of the symmetrical shapes favored by many of the best white gaming mice, the Model D might be what you need.
The Model D’s specs aren’t as impressive on paper as some of its newer rivals. However, there’s nothing to really complain about: the PixArt PMW3360 sensor is still excellent, and the flexible “Ascended Cord” is still one of the better ones you’ll find on a wired mouse.
It’s not too heavy, either; 69 grams is still fine, especially considering the relatively large shape. The Model D isn’t a mouse for weight-obsessed gamers seeking the lightest mouse possible, but it’s still lighter than most ergonomic rivals. If you need the curves of a right-handed model but don’t want to deal with 100-gram mice, the Model D is your best bet.
One common issue we’ve seen and experienced with Glorious mice is some rattle and horizontal wobble on the mouse buttons. It generally doesn’t affect the clicks themselves, thankfully. But there’s no denying the Model D doesn’t feel quite as solidly built as other, more expensive mice.
Build quality concerns aside, there isn’t much wrong with the Model D. It’s a solid, high-performance mouse at a relatively low price, with a nearly perfect shape for those who want a larger ergonomic mouse. The Model D is available in Glossy White and Matte White.
|Weight||53 grams (1.87 oz)|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||4.59 x 2.15 x 1.50 inches|
|DPI Range||400 - 16,000|
Cooler Master’s MM710 is a small, lightweight gaming mouse that’s one of the lightest mice available. Weighing in at just 53 grams, the MM710 is the perfect mouse for users who want a tiny and effortlessly light mouse.
How tiny? The MM710 has one of the narrowest grip widths on our list, at only 2.15 inches. It’s also relatively short at 4.6 inches, making it an excellent option for fingertip grip users. It’s also small enough for palm grip use regardless of hand size, although we feel that ergonomic mice suit that particular grip better.
The size and ultra-lightweight shell are the MM710’s main selling points, but it’s a solid mouse in other aspects too. The PixArt PMW3389 sensor is a high-quality example that should track perfectly on any surface and in the most intense situations, and the flexible paracord-style cable should make cable drag a non-issue.
A small touch that we appreciate is Cooler Master’s decision to coat the MM710’s PCB with a water- and dust-resistant coating. It’s not fool-proof, as the switches and mouse wheel aren’t protected, but it’s a nice extra layer of protection that may come in handy given the honeycomb shell.
Overall, the Cooler Master MM710 is a great gaming mouse as long as the size and shape work for you. Fingertip grippers should be particularly keen on the MM710, with its small size and low weight. The best thing is that it’s affordable enough to try even if you’re still not 100% sure about your grip style or mouse preferences.
The Cooler Master MM710 is available in Matte White and Glossy White. If you want RGB, check out the Cooler Master MM711, which is identical save for the extra lighting and a few extra grams of weight.
|Weight||96 grams (3.38 oz)|
|Dimensions (L x W x H)||5.0 x 2.43 x 1.68 inches|
|DPI Range||200 - 6400|
Razer’s DeathAdder Essential is an entry-level version of its popular DeathAdder, giving up many of the modern mouse features on the higher-priced versions to bring the price down to a budget-friendly $30.
As you might expect, this low price does come with sacrifices. For one, you don’t get the Razer 5G Optical or Razer Focus+ sensors on the company’s newer mice. Instead, the DeathAdder Essential makes do with an older optical sensor, as indicated by its maximum DPI of 6400. It won’t ruin your game, but it’s technically not as dialed-in and consistent as newer high-end sensors.
That said, the relatively stiff cable and weight are more likely to impact your gaming experience here. The DeathAdder Essential has a braided cable, but it’s not as flexible as most modern mouse cables. It’s stiff enough that you’ll probably need a good mouse bungee to avoid cable issues.
It’s also an exceedingly heavy mouse at 96 grams (3.38 oz). It comes with the territory, as many large ergonomic mice weigh in around the 100-gram mark. But even if it’s normal, it doesn’t stop the DeathAdder Essential from feeling a bit old-fashioned to use.
However, we think that’s acceptable for such an affordable mouse; shopping at this price means making sacrifices. We believe that the DeathAdder Essential’s tried-and-tested (if outdated) sensor and switches make up for the weight and mediocre cable. And then there’s the shape, which is still one of the best right-handed ones you’ll find on a gaming mouse.
Overall, the Razer DeathAdder Essential is a solid white gaming mouse for those on a tight budget. It’s a safe, reliable choice that will outperform many budget mice as long as your hand is the right size for it.
There are times when you end up sacrificing performance for aesthetics, especially when it comes to peripherals. Thankfully, the best white gaming mice show that that doesn’t always have to be the case. Our picks provide excellent performance at a wide range of price points, matched with aesthetics that’ll fit perfectly next to your white gaming keyboard.
If money’s no object, either the Logitech G Pro X Superlight or Razer Viper Ultimate are the mice we’d recommend. They’re both outstanding and are at the top of the pile as far as mice go. But if you’re looking for good value, the Endgame Gear XM1r and Glorious Model D are worth checking out.
