If you're in the market for a new gaming mouse, you won't go far wrong with the Razer Deathadder Elite. It's one of our favourite gaming mice and is currently £40 on Amazon. It's not the cheapest we've seen it and while the listing says it's a saving of £30, a tenner is probably closer to the mark when you consider the average historical price. Still, it's a good mouse at a decent saving.

Using a 16,000 CPI optical sensor based on the PMW-3389—one of the best mouse sensors available—the Razer Deathadder Elite should have close to 99.4% resolution accuracy as well as a 450 IPS rating. It has a total of six buttons including two substantial thumb buttons and a shape that suits most grips. With near-flawless tracking this mouse works just as well on both hard and cloth pads.

And if you're not keen on Razer's particular brand of green RGB lighting, you can change the colour and effects through the Synapse software.

While it may not have all of the extra buttons that decorate some of the other popular gaming mice, if you're looking for something a bit simpler but with the excellent build quality, you can't go far wrong with the Deathadder Elite. There's a reason it holds the number two spot on our best gaming mouse guide and has done for a while now.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
