“The Legend Reborn” is probably the best way to describe Logitech’s MX518. This is a remake of a very old and beloved mouse. No matter what type of game you played, the good old MX518 would never fail you, and now you can buy a new version with all the goodies you would expect, and for an outrageous price!
This mouse comes with Hero 16k Sensor: the best technology to date, as well as onboard memory, meaning that after you create and save profiles with your preferred settings in Logitech’s Gaming Software, such as buttons functions, macros, etc., if you plug in this mouse to any other computer, those profiles will go with it, without the need of additional software. With 8 programmable buttons and a comfortable design, your right (or left) hand will be ready to deal some damage!

Razer DeathAdder Elite
Weight: 105g | Cable length: 7 feet | Resolution: 16000 DPI
Optical sensor | USB report rate: 1000 Hz Ultrapolling
Used by professionals and not bank-braking expensive!
This mouse is the peak of quality when it comes to serious gaming. You won’t be able to find a professional gamer that doesn’t know of this mouse. The Razer DeathAdder Elite is shaped in an ergonomic way, has textured rubber side grips, and is equipped with gaming-optimized mechanical mouse switches developed by Razer (one of the most prestigious companies in the gaming industry). These new mouse switches can withstand about 50 million clicks!
This mouse has won many awards and is one of the favourites between professional gamers, that’s why it’s considered one of the best gaming mice under 60$ out there. If you don’t want to mess up your dark red gaming setup, don’t worry, because with Razer Chroma’s software, you can give your mouse many different lighting effects in 16.8 million customizable colours. Are you looking for a mouse that won’t fail you from a brand with experience in professional gaming? Then the Razer DeathAdder Elite is the mouse for you!
Logitech G Pro Gaming
Weight: 83g | Resolution: 100 – 16000 DPI
USB data format: 16 bits/axis | USB report rate: 1000 Hz (1ms)
Designed for professional gaming, Logitech G Pro Gaming is equipped with the Hero 16k Sensor, Logitech’s most accurate gaming sensor, making it capable of 16000 DPI with no smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range. The simple design of this mouse is inspired by classic Logitech mice G100 and G100s.
The buttons were crafted with Logitech’s mechanical button tensioning system, giving you reliable click performances in all aspects you can imagine! According to Logitech, the left and right buttons can withstand more than 50 million clicks, which is equivalent to gaming 10 hours every day for 5 years! In contrast to other mice in our “best gaming mouse under 60” list, this one doesn’t have a braided cable, but don’t assume it has one of those cheaper plastic-like cables, this mouse comes with a light, smooth and flexible PVC-free high-quality cable, making it a great all-around quality mouse.
Logitech G403 Prodigy RGB Gaming Mouse
Logitech’s G403 is a great combination of comfort, performance and quiet looks. Much like
what we already expect from Logitech, this mouse is built with the best materials, and is the choice of many professional players.
The buttons in this mouse can withstand 20-million clicks and have a mechanical button tensioning system. We should also mention that the cable is braided, which gives it a premium look and feel, while giving more resistance. I really admire the quality of this product,
especially if you consider its price.
My favorite extra of this mouse is its adjustable weight, you can attach and detach 10g from the bottom of the mouse, which comes in handy when you feel tired. You also have access to Logitech’s software. With only 6 buttons, this mouse lacks a little bit in the “extras”. For some MOBA games, like Dota2 or LoL, and for games with a lot of customizable shortcuts, like Fortnite and WoW, the extra buttons that most gaming mice come with nowadays can be very useful. But I would definitely not say that this affects your in-game performance, after all, most professional players prefer mice with not that many buttons, much like G403.

Corsair GLAIVE RGB Gaming Mouse
The Corsair GLAIVE RGB Gaming Mouse is the first on our list with interchangeable thumb grips, letting you personalize the mouse as you see fit for yourself! Much like other Corsair mice, you will have access to their iCLUE Software, letting you assign macros to any button and letting you create dynamic lighting effects.
We consider this mouse one of the best gaming mice under 60$ out there for many reasons, first of all, it has an ergonomic design, which helps a lot for long game sessions. But this is not the best choice for small hands, as it is a quite big mouse. It’s also worth mentioning that this mouse’s sensor works perfectly well in almost all surfaces.
The only negative aspect of the Corsair GLAIVE RGB Gaming Mouse is its not-so-great build quality, most specifically the build quality of its main buttons. So if you choose to buy this mouse, make sure you are careful when moving it from place to place, and don’t smash the buttons with all your strength when you get angry. We have an article where we talk about build quality and all the other characteristics of a mouse, you can check it out here: What Makes It Good? – Mice.
HyperX Pulsefire Surge
If you are looking for an ambidextrous mouse with simple yet very cool design, look no further! The HyperX Pulsefire Surge is just that, and much more! With 100g of weight, it’s not too heavy nor too light, not too big nor too little, I would say it’s a great mouse for everyone. With a great build quality and switches rated for 50 million clicks, after months of use, this mouse will perform and look as well as new. In HyperX’s NGenuity Software, you’re able to customize the functions of the buttons as well as all the colours around the mouse.
This is a great mouse overall for both gaming and daily business.
