The reviews aren't comparative, but they are detailed and include a rating. The best mice earn an Editors' Choice award. Among recent mice, the Microsoft Touch mouse, Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 Small, Logitech Couch Mouse M515, Gigabyte M8000Xtreme Mouse and Logitech Marathon Mouse M705 receive that designation.

Keyboards and Mice
by Editors of OCIA.net

Mouse Reviews, Ratings, and Pricing
by Editors of ComputerShopper.com
Our AssessmentReviews for mice are mixed in with other peripherals, but those that exist are balanced and newer entries include ratings. Avoid the "Top 10 Products" at the bottom of the page, as they are much more dated than the product reviews themselves and include discontinued products. The SwiftPoint laptop-friendly mouse receives an 8.8 out of 10 rating and an Editors' Choice designation. The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000 earns a Computer Shopper Recommended designation in an unrated review.

by Vincent Alzieu
Our AssessmentDigitalVersus.com picks their favorite mice in the entry-level, ambidextrous, overall, mobile and wireless categories, including their testing and full reviews of many other models. The Logitech Corded Mouse M500, SteelSeries Xai, Logitech G500 and Logitech G700 get the nod in the comparative review. Reviews are occasionally brutally honest, and the site is not afraid to call out models that don't work well.
by Editors of Laptop Magazine
Our AssessmentLaptop Magazine occasionally runs a single-mouse review, with an emphasis on travel mice. The reviews aren't comparative but go into some detail and include a star rating. The best products, such as the Microsoft Touch Mouse, earn an Editors' Choice award.

Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and Gaming Keyboard G510 Review
by Shawn Knight
Our AssessmentHad the Logitech G700 been released in time for TechSpot's 12-mouse roundup, Shawn Knight says it would have taken top honors for best gaming mouse. In this review, he details his impressions of both the Logitech G700 and the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510. He likes the feel and button layout of the G700, but remains most dazzled by its "high quality 5700 dpi rating and 1000 MHz polling rate." The only drawback is its price.

Hardware Reviews -- Mice
by Editors of MaximumPC.com
Our AssessmentMaximumPC.com reviews a mouse every month or two with stylish commentary that can sometimes lean towards the superficial. Reviews include hands-on testing, a rating and an easy-to-scan summary of high and low points. The Razer Naga Epic, Microsoft Arc Touch and Razer Lachesis earn scores of 8 out of 10 in more recent reviews.
Mice/Tracker Ball Reviews
by Editors of PCAdvisor.com
Our AssessmentThe U.K. site PC Advisor offers frequent reviews of mice and trackballs (which our neighbors across the pond refer to as tracker balls). Reviews are complete, rated and dated, though some are for models not available in the United States. The SteelSeries Sensei, Razer Imperator 4G 2012, HP WiFi Mobile Mouse, Razer Abyssus, Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX and Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000 earn 4 out of 5 stars in recent reviews. The Razer StarCraft Spectre Gaming Mouse and Microsoft Arc Touch earn 4.5 out of 5 stars.
by Editors of Engadget.com
Our AssessmentIt can be tough to find mouse reviews in the mix here, because they're scattered among other peripherals, but the writeups are thoughtful and complete. While unrated, they typically do a nice job of comparing one model versus another in the text. The Mad Catz Cyborg Rat 9, Whirl Mini Notebook Laser Mouse and SwiftPoint are among the models receiving positive reviews.
by Editors of TechTree.com
Our AssessmentThe mouse reviews at India's TechTree.com are fairly good, but not as comprehensive as others. Some of the reviews don't have a rating. Among recent reviews, the Roccat Kone, Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500, Roccat Pyra Wireless Mouse, CoolerMaster Sentinel and Razer Imperator earn 4 out of 5 stars..
by Contributors to Amazon.com
Our AssessmentWhile individual user reviews aren't always the best indicator of whether a mouse is a winner or not, large numbers of them in aggregate tell a more complete story. That makes Amazon.com one of the best places to gather user opinions as some mice -- especially top sellers -- have accumulated hundreds of reviews. However, scores are too similar to differentiate between the dozens of leaders.
Input Devices: Mouse
by Contributors to Newegg.com
Our AssessmentTechnology retailer Newegg.com allows customers to review and rate products. Many mice have more than 50 reviews, and a few 5-star mice have hundreds of reviews, including the 5-star, 900-plus review Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse.. Listings include some budget mice, such as Microsoft's Wheel Mouse and the Logitech B100 Black 3-Button USB Wired Optical Mouse, which earn an average of 5 out of 5 stars from users but are too inexpensive to grab the attention of professional reviewers.

Hardware and Equipment for the Private Practitioner
by Greg Mulhauser
Our AssessmentGreg Mulhauser is one of the few who have reviewed trackballs in the last few years. A trackball is a mouse alternative that is seen by some as a more ergonomic choice. Mulhauser tests the Logitech Cordless Trackman over a period of several weeks, concluding it is a "great pointing device" that should be on the short list of anyone considering a trackball. He reviews several other trackballs, but most have been discontinued.
2012 Bluetooth Mouse Product Comparisons
by Editors of TopTenReviews.com
Our AssessmentReviews aren't easy to find on TopTenReviews.com, in part because they're scattered among different categories (Computing, Gaming, etc.). Roundups of Bluetooth mice and wireless mice/keyboard packages aren't very helpful for selecting best models, as nearly every unit gets 3.5 or 4 stars, but they do provide plenty of detail about each mouse.
