99% of gaming mice are either black or some shade of grey. If you’re going for an all-white setup then you’re gonna need a white gaming mouse. On this page, I’ll be reviewing what I think are the best white gaming mice for 2021. It’s important to note that while this list is ordered, none of these mice are necessarily “better” than each other. It’s always going to be up to your personal preferences. I’ve tried my best to include a wide range of options while only including reputable brands.
1. Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT
63g • HERO 25K sensor • 125x64x40mm • wireless
The G PRO X is an ultra-light wireless gaming mouse available in both black and white. It shares the same shape and dimensions as the original G PRO and has seen major improvements in just about every aspect. The most notable improvement is the weight. The G PRO X is now 25% lighter at just 63 grams, this is incredibly light for a wireless mouse.
As for the specs, the G PRO X has the same flawless HERO sensor as the original, as well as the pro-grade LIGHTSPEED wireless. It has an impressive 70-hour battery life and can be charged using either the included charging cable or a POWERPLAY mousepad (sold separately!). Another improvement is the new 100% PTFE mouse feet, to keep it simple, the new material should produce a far smoother glide than the older stock feet on the original.
Overall, this is a top-tier mouse, and possibly the best white gaming mouse out there. There’s a reason so many pro fps players have made the switch to the G PRO X, sure some of them are sponsored, but I would say the majority of them simply like the mouse. The biggest drawback is the price. The mouse costs $150 as of writing this making it the most expensive option on this list.
2. Razer Orochi V2
64g • Razer 3335 sensor • 108x60x38mm • wireless
The Orochi V2 is a small wireless gaming mouse with an impressively low weight of 64 grams. It uses Razer’s HyperSpeed wireless, giving you a flawless connection that’s no different from a wired experience. Razer decided to ditch RGB lighting in favour of a longer battery which has clearly paid off. The Orochi V2 has an insane battery life, it can last up to 425 hours in HyperSpeed mode and almost 1000 hours while on Bluetooth.
The mouse is available in either black or white on Amazon, but if you order the mouse from Razer’s own site you can customize your own personal design at an extra cost. As for the specs, the sensor is flawless, the mouse feet are 100% PTFE, and the switches have a 60 million click lifespan. If you’re looking for a white wireless gaming mouse on the smaller side, give the Orochi V2 a look.
To clear up any confusion, the weight of this mouse will vary depending on what batteries you use, the 64 grams is achieved by using a AAA lithium battery. That being said, it’s still going to be super light no matter what battery you go for.
3. Glorious Model O
58 – 69g • Pixart 3360 sensor • 128x59x37mm • Ascended Cord
Glorious were early adopters of the ultra-light style with the release of the original Model O back in 2019. Fast forward to 2021 and there’s now two additional versions of the mouse, the Model O Minus, and the Model O Wireless. With a symmetrical shape and multiple versions to choose from, the Model O is a strong contender for all grip styles. All three versions are available in both black and white, as well as a limited edition pink colourway which seems to be sold out whenever I check their website.
The Model O was designed to be used at a competitive level and the specs reflect that. The Pixart 3360 sensor is flawless, the cable is light and flexible, and the G-Skates are made of 100% PTFE. Lastly, while software is available for the Model O, it’s optional as all of the settings can be changed via the mouse itself, making it entirely driver-free.
Model O Wireless
The newest edition to the series is the Model O Wireless. Despite having the same dimensions and specs as the regular Model O, it’s somehow only 2 grams heavier at 69g. The 2.4GHz wireless is lag-free and indistinguishable from its wired competitors. It has an impressive 70+ hour battery life (with the RGB switched off) and can be used while being charged thanks to the flexible USB-C cable. The downside as you may have guessed is the price, depending on where you buy the mouse it can be almost double the price of the original.
Model O Minus
As the name suggests, the Model O Minus is an extra-small gaming mouse weighing a tiny 58 grams, 9 grams less than the standard size. I’m glad companies like Glorious and Razer are releasing smaller versions of their mice and I hope other brands start to do the same.
4. Razer Viper
61 – 74g • Razer 3359 sensor • 127x66x38mm • SpeedFlex cable
You can always count on Razer to offer multiple colour options for their products, including white, or in this case “Mercury”. 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 white 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. If you’re looking for a matching headset or keyboard, have a look at the rest of the Razer Mercury collection.
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.
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.
5. Logitech G203
85g • Logitech 8K sensor • 117x62x38mm • Rubber cable
If you manage to catch the G203 on sale it can be one of the best budget gaming mice on the market. Thankfully, gaming mice tend to go on sale pretty often, I managed to buy a G203 myself for less than $20 a few years back. There are four colours to choose from including white, black, blue, and lilac.
The mouse has a solid build, top-tier specs, and LIGHTSYNC RGB lighting. It’s a relatively small mouse with a low weight of 85 grams, a weight that used to be considered impressive but now falls short to the countless ultra-light options. Overall, the G203 is a budget-friendly option with top specs, a loved shape, and a generous amount of colours to choose from.
Logitech G305 – a wireless alternative
For an extra 20-30 dollars you could go for the G305 instead. It shares the same shape and colour options as the G203 but with LIGHTSPEED wireless, a HERO sensor, and a weight of 99g. Wireless gaming mice are no longer considered a disadvantage, especially Logitech ones. While it’s more expensive than the G203, the G305 is still relatively cheap in terms of wireless gaming mice making it another solid choice.
6. Razer DeathAdder Essential
96g • Razer optical sensor • 127x62x43mm • Braided cable
The Razer DeathAdder is quite possibly the best-selling gaming mouse of all time, since its original release in 2006, Razer have sold over 10 million copies of the various editions. One of the latest versions is the DeathAdder Essential, a cheaper alternative to the V2 and the V2 Pro. The Essential also happens to be the only DeathAdder available in the all-white colour scheme.
It’s equipped with a top optical sensor, a standard braided cable, and mechanical switches. Overall, the DeathAdder Essential is a budget white gaming mouse with a proven history of performance. The shape is loved by many and the specs are fit for both casual and competitive gaming.
If you’re looking for a smaller ergonomic mouse then check out the V2 Mini instead, it’s similarly priced but is only sold in black at the moment.
7. White ZOWIE mice
75 – 97g • 3360 sensor • multiple sizes • Rubber cable
Seeing as so many of their mice are available in white, I’ve decided to talk about ZOWIE mice in general rather than choose a specific model. ZOWIE mice have top-tier specs and a long-lasting build. The 3360 sensor is flawless and approved by countless 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.
ZOWIE mice are hugely 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.
In terms of looks alone, the ZOWIE options are my favourite white gaming mice. I’m a big fan of the low-key no RGB design.
8. Glorious Model D
61 – 68g • Pixart 3360 sensor • 128x63x42mm • Ascended Cord
The Model D has the same build quality and specs as the Model O but with an ergonomic asymmetrical shape rather than the symmetrical ambidex style. The ergonomic shape makes it perfect for a palm grip style. It’s available in two sizes; the Model D and the Model D minus. The Minus is the lighter option weighing just 61 grams, making it 7 grams lighter than the original.
In case you missed the specs on the Model O, the Model D is equipped with a flawless Pixart sensor, an ultra-flex cable, and 100% PTFE mouse feet. All of the settings can be adjusted via the mouse itself making the software entirely optional. Like all Glorious mice, the Model D has two colours and materials to choose from; black, white, glossy, and matte.
9. Cooler Master MM710
53g • Pixart 3389 sensor • 117x63x38mm • Ultraweave cable
Weighing just 53 grams, the MM710 is one of the lightest white gaming mice on the market. There are four designs to choose from including matte black, matte white, glossy black, and glossy white. There’s also an RGB edition available called the MM711 which has an exclusive green design dubbed “Wilderness”.
While the honeycomb shell is a big influence on the low weight, a lot of people worry about the potential downsides, like dirt or water damage. Thankfully, the PCBA has been sprayed with a dust and water-resistant coating, preventing any hole-related malfunctions. Honeycomb mice have been around for a while now and while the design is strange, I think it’s safe to say there are no major flaws.
The MM710 is equipped with a top-tier Pixart sensor, 100% PTFE mouse skates, and Cooler Master’s new Ultraweave cable. It’s a relatively small mouse with an ambidextrous shape making it great for both claw and fingertip grip.
10. Cooler Master MM720
49g • Pixart 3389 sensor • 105x77x37mm • Ultraweave cable
The MM720 from Cooler Master is the lightest white mouse on this list. At just 49 grams it’s one of the lightest gaming mice on the market.
The MM720 has a unique shape compared to the other mice on this list. It has a short yet wide ergonomic design with a ledge to rest your ring finger on. Cooler Master confirmed that the shape was designed with a claw grip style in mind, if you don’t use a claw grip I would recommend checking out the MM710 instead. If you’re unsure what grip style you use, check out my grip style post here!
Under the hood the mouse has everything you would hope for; a top-tier Pixart sensor, optical switches, and 2-zone RGB lighting.
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 PCBA has been sprayed with dust and water-resistant coating, preventing any honeycomb-related malfunctions.
The new ultraweave cable combined with the 95% PTFE mouse skates gives the mouse an almost wireless feel, the days of stiff plastic cables are truly behind us. Lastly, there are four designs to choose from including; matte black, matte white, glossy black, and glossy white.
11. G-Wolves Hati HTM
50 – 61g • Pixart 3360 sensor • 127x63x38mm • Paracord cable
G-Wolves have managed to emulate the Finalmouse style but without the limited availability and at half the cost. The Hati HTM has a very similar shape to the Logitech G PRO, a mouse that has been a fan favourite ever since its release. The mouse is available in two sizes; the standard edition, and the HTM S.
Thanks to the small size and the honeycomb shell, the Hati HTM S weighs an impressive 50g. The regular HTM is 11mm longer and 3mm wider than the HTM S, while this may sound minimal, it ends up adding 11g to the weight making it 61 grams, which of course is still an ultra-light mouse.
Aside from the shape and size, the G-Wolves Hati is equipped with a flawless Pixart sensor, PTFE mouse skates, and a detachable paracord flex cable. There are currently 5 unique design options on Amazon US, including a white colour scheme.
An extra cool thing about this mouse is the generous amount of accessories it comes with. Along with the mouse, you’ll receive some anti-slip grip tape, a tin collectors box, a cleaning brush, and a spare set of mouse skates!
12. 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 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”.
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. If you prefer a larger ergonomic shape then I would recommend checking out the Xtrfy M4 instead.
13. Corsair M65
97g • PMW 3391 sensor • 116x77x39mm • Braided cable
The M65 is a relatively large gaming mouse from Corsair available in both black and white. Despite it already being quite heavy at 97 grams, the mouse comes with additional weights allowing you to increase it up to 116 grams. I guess some people do prefer heavy mice.
There are 3 side buttons on the mouse with one of them being the “sniper” button. Pressing the sniper button will instantly reduce your sensitivity to help you hit precise shots. If you’re not interested in the sniper feature then you can simply rebind it to something else.
As you would expect from Corsair, the M65 has a top-tier sensor and a reliable build quality. If you’re looking for a white gaming mouse on the larger side then this may be the one for you.
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.
