The new Gigabyte Aorus M5 gaming mouse showcases a hardware maker more traditionally associated with stuff like motherboards and graphics cards, flex some of that skill in the peripheral department. With a great sensor and the ability to adjust the weight, the Aorus M5 is not only affordable - but versatile too.
A snippet from our review.
In terms of the underlying hardware though the Aorus M5 is not only durable but more than up to the task. With the 16000 DPI capability of the excellent Pixart PMW3389 sensor to the Omron switches that offer up a 50 million-click lifespan. Again, this is a fully featured offering from Gigabyte – and commendable. The ability to adjust the weight is something usually regulated to high-end mice, and even though we’re only talking about a 5% change you do get the ability to fine tune the feel to better suit different styles of play.

is there a decent high quality sub-$100 gaming mouse that doesn't look like it was vomited up by a unicorn these days?
I don't want lights or anything. My current mouse - Logitech G300s - has started failing; the left button is intermittently not firing/releasing when I'm holding it down, which is inconvenient. It was really cheap and has been great but I only got 18 months out of it which seems pretty short.
Yeah Gigabyte M5, Logitech G602, Gigabyte M8000X.
For anything with RGB like the M5, you can easily just turn it all off.
i like my Cougar 300M Gaming Mouse Black/Orange
its no microsoft intellimouse, but it goes ok
I ended up going back to Logitech and got a G402. It's pretty nice but for some reason the right mouse button has a super hair trigger and the shape of the mouse means I'm accidentally pressing it all the time, which is a bit annoying. Hopefully I get used to it.
