90% of gaming mice are either black or some shade of grey. Colourful mice are pretty hard to come by, especially pink ones. Thankfully, there are a few brands that make the effort to provide alternate colours for their gaming mice. On this page, I’ll be reviewing what I think are the five best pink gaming mice for 2021. Remember that although the list is ordered, the best mouse for you will always come down to your personal preferences, #1 is not necessarily better than #5!
1. Razer Viper
61 / 69 / 74g • Razer 3359 sensor • 127x66x38mm • SpeedFlex cable
You can always count on Razer to offer multiple colour options for their products, including pink, or in this case “Quartz”. The Razer Viper is an ultra-light gaming mouse with three versions to choose from; the original Viper, the Viper Mini, and the Viper Ultimate. This makes the Viper, in my opinion, the most versatile pink gaming mouse as there’s an option for everyone. For example; I have small hands and use a fingertip grip style so I would go for the Viper Mini.
All 3 versions of the Viper have a flawless sensor, a Speedflex cable, 100% PTFE mouse feet, and Razer optical switches. The RGB underglow however can only be found on the Viper Mini.
The Viper Mini
The Viper Mini shares the same shape and specs as the original, the only difference being the size, weight, and RGB underglow. It weighs 61 grams making it 8 grams lighter than the original. It’s considered a small-sized mouse with the dimensions being 127x66x38mm. It’s also significantly cheaper than the other two versions being less than $40 as of writing this. As someone who prefers small mice, the huge price cut is a little confusing.
The Viper Ultimate (wireless)
The Viper Ultimate has the same dimensions as the regular Viper and somehow only weighs 74 grams. It uses Razer’s flawless HyperSpeed wireless technology making it feel no different from a wired connection. The mouse has a 70-hour battery life and can be charged using either the charging dock or the Speedflex charging cable, both included in the box. The obvious drawback to the Ultimate is the price, as of writing this it’s almost 3x the cost of the Viper Mini.
If you’re looking for a matching headset or keyboard, have a look at the rest of the Razer Quartz series.
2. BenQ ZOWIE DIVINA
86 – 98g • 3360 sensor • multiple shapes • Rubber cable
ZOWIE have a set of special edition pink versions of their mice, also known as the DIVINA series. Their mice are extremely popular amongst the FPS community, especially CSGO players. Most people agree that shape is the most important factor when choosing a gaming mouse, if ZOWIE mice are known for anything, it’s their shapes. They have plenty of shapes to choose from making their mice suitable for a wide range of grip styles and hand sizes.
All of the DIVINA mice have top-tier specs and a long-lasting build. The 3360 sensor is flawless and approved by countless CSGO pros. The mice have no drivers or software making them plug-and-play, all of the necessary settings can be adjusted using the buttons on the base.
In terms of looks alone, the ZOWIE DIVINA’s are my favourite pink gaming mice. I’m a big fan of the low-key no RGB design; the white scroll wheel and side buttons go really well with the glossy pink shell.
3. Xtrfy M42
59g • Pixart 3389 sensor • 118x54x38mm • EZcord cable
The Xtrfy M42 is a small-sized ultra-light gaming mouse with a honeycomb shell, ambidex shape, and a weight of 59 grams. There are five colours to choose from including pink, blue, white, grey, and black.
What makes this mouse unique is the modular shell, it comes with two interchangeable “humps” so you can adjust the size to your needs. For example; if you use a claw grip style then you may go for the raised hump to rest the back of your palm on, whereas a fingertip grip user would probably prefer the low profile hump instead.
While the honeycomb shell is a big influence on the low weight, a lot of people worry about the potential downsides, like dirt and water damage. Thankfully the inside of the M42 has a dust and splash-resistant conformal coating, protecting the components from any hole-related malfunctions. Xtrfy also stated that quality will always come first; “Lower weight must never mean lower quality, no compromises”.
The Xtrfy M42 is equipped with a flawless Pixart sensor, 100% PTFE mouse skates, and a flexible EZcord cable. Lastly, all of the mouse settings can be adjusted on the mouse itself making it a simple plug-and-play choice.
4. Xtrfy M4
69g • Pixart 3389 sensor • 120x56x39mm • EZcord cable
Another pink mouse from Xtrfy is the M4. The Xtrfy M4 is a medium-sized ultra-light gaming mouse with a honeycomb shell, ergonomic shape, and a weight of 69 grams. There are five designs to choose from including pink, blue, white, grey, and black. I’m glad Xtrfy decided to offer so many colour options for their mice and I hope other companies start to do the same.
You may be understandably worried about the potential downsides of the honeycomb shell. Thankfully the inside of the M4 has a dust and splash-resistant conformal coating, protecting the components from any hole-related malfunctions. Xtrfy also stated that quality will always come first; “Lower weight must never mean lower quality, no compromises”.
Just like the M42, the Xtrfy M4 is equipped with a flawless Pixart sensor, 100% PTFE mouse skates, and a flexible EZcord cable. Lastly, all of the mouse settings can be adjusted on the mouse itself making it another plug-and-play choice.
5. ASUS ROG Gladius II Origin
110g • 3360 sensor • 126x67x45mm • braided cable
The ROG Gladius II Origin is part of their PNK LTD line, a series of pink gaming peripherals perfect for a matching setup. The Gladius II is a large mouse with a right-handed ergonomic shape, it weighs 110g making it the heaviest mouse on this list by quite a margin.
As for the specs, the Gladius II is equipped with a 3360 sensor, Omron switches, a detachable braided cable, and ASUS Aura RGB lighting. You can adjust all of the lighting and mouse settings using the ROG Armoury software.
If you’re looking for a pink mouse on the larger side then give this one a look. I think the 110g weight will be a deal-breaker for a lot of competitive gamers, but not everyone prefers lightweight mice, so if you like the shape and specs then it’s still a solid choice.
How to choose a gaming mouse
Your number one priority when choosing a gaming mouse should always be the shape and size. The rest of the specs are useless if you’re not comfortable gripping the mouse in the first place. The right shape for you will come down to your grip style, hand size, and personal preferences. For example, I have small hands and play with a fingertip grip so I like to use mice with a small, low-profile, ambidextrous shape. If you’re unsure what kind of grip you use then consider checking out my simple guide to mouse grip styles.
If the mouse is made by a top-tier gaming brand then the sensor is most likely flawless. Optical sensors are so good nowadays that you really don’t have to worry about them. That being said, gaming companies will continue to advertise their sensors as if they are superior to the others, just ignore them and focus on the specs that actually matter.
When it comes to competitive gaming, especially FPS games, a lot of people prefer to use lightweight mice. The lighter the mouse is the easier it will be to start and stop, pretty simple. If you browse through a site like prosettings.net, you’ll start to realise just how many pros are using ultra-light gaming mice. On the flip side, some people do prefer heavy mice and that’s fine too!
Most gaming mice have at least two side buttons, it’s pretty rare to find one with zero. If you’re looking to play a game with a tonne of keybinds, like World of Warcraft, then you might prefer an MMO mouse, although I think you’ll have a tough time finding a pink one.
A high-quality flexible cable can make a wired mouse feel almost wireless. We’re now at the point where most new gaming mice include a flexible braided cable. Razer are a good example of this, all of their recent mice are equipped with their new “Speedflex” cables.
You may have noticed that most of the new gaming mice nowadays have white mouse feet. The reason for this is that a lot of brands are making the switch over to using 100% PTFE. To keep it simple, 100% PTFE feet tend to produce a smoother glide than the alternatives. Despite this improvement, I would still put mouse feet as a low priority when choosing a gaming mouse.
