Best wireless mouse 2023: Top wire-free options for gaming and the office

Cables can be a right pain, often getting tangled up and taking up a valuable port on your PC. But there’s no need to settle for a wired peripheral, as we’ve rounded up the very best wireless mouse options that you can buy in 2023.

Our team of experts review numerous mice each year, in all shapes and sizes. These range from super-speedy gaming options suitable for eSports fans, to fully featured alternatives that will boost productivity at the office.

Every wireless mouse that achieves at least a 4-star rating (out of 5) is considered for this best list, so you know you’re getting top quality for your cash. During the testing process, we make sure to evaluate the design, performance, wireless connection and battery life, as well as factoring in the price, before reaching a final verdict.

We use every mouse we test for at least a week. During that time, we’ll check it for ease of use and put it through its paces by playing a variety of different genres, including FPS, strategy and MOBAs.

We also check each mouse’s software to see how easy it is to customise and set up.

Logitech MX Master 3S

Best wireless productivity mouse
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Uprated sensor feels fantastic
  • Comfortable to hold
  • Logi Options+ software is excellent


  • No cosmetic changes to the previous model
  • Expensive

The Logitech MX Master 3S is, in our view, the best wireless mouse for productivity. It features an 8000 DPI sensor, which is double the sensitivity of the older Master 3, and made for an especially snappy experience for day-to-day working during testing.

In addition, the MX Master 3S also comes with the powers of both Bluetooth and Logi Bolt receiver connectivity, which means you have two ways of connecting the mouse up, and there’s also support for up to three devices, with switching being a doddle during testing thanks to the button on the mouse’s underside.

The battery life here remains unchanged with the last generation, but is still certainly brilliant – it should last for a quoted 70 days on a full charge. And one quick minute of charging via the bundled USB-C cable gives you three hours of playtime.

The design here remains practically identical to the older MX master 3, retaining the tall stature and rubberised coating that offers both modern looks and a mouse that’s especially comfortable to hold over long periods of time. The only real difference when it comes to design is that Logitech has bundled Quiet Click buttons with the Master 3S that offer a dampened sound, which is ideal if you’re someone who doesn’t want to annoy any co-workers. 

The MX Master 3S works with Logitech’s rather clever Options+ software, which offers a handy means of remapping buttons and mouse functions, both for general use, as well as with app specific presets, which is clever. With that being said, perhaps the most clever thing here is the return of Logi Flow. Flow is a feature that allows you to drag and drop documents from one operating system to another, as long as the mouse is connected to two different channels, and the devices you’re using are on the same networks. In testing, with a MacBook Pro and Windows 11 PC, it worked without a hitch and offered quite a boost to productivity.

Logitech Lift Vertical Ergonomic Mouse

 Best ergonomic wireless mouse
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Comfortable to hold
  • Ergonomic design
  • No glitches during testing
  • Great button placement
  • Works on a variety of surfaces


  • Slightly small
  • Have to manually turn off

The Logitech Lift is an excellent choice if you’re after a wireless mouse that also spares a thought for the true comfort of long working hours.

As the name suggests, and as the chassis demonstrates, this is more of an ergonomic choice given it offers a much more raised, handshake-style position than a standard mouse. During testing, the Lift proved to be more comfortable than other mice we’ve used in the past and did an excellent job of alleviating any wrist strain we would otherwise usually get towards the end of a working day.

Inside, the Logitech Lift comes with up to 4000 DPI’s worth of sensitivity, which is plenty for general office work, and the sensitivity proved to be more than enough to suit its use case during testing. Much like a lot of Logitech’s other products, the Lift comes with the brand’s Easy Switch function that makes switching between up to three connected devices an absolute doddle. Having this within such easy reach is especially handy if you’re someone who often works with multiple devices at once. 

There are also two means of connecting the Lift to a device, either through Bluetooth or the bundled USB receiver, giving you even more control. Unlike Logitech’s more premium peripherals, there isn’t a rechargeable battery inside the Lift, as it’s powered by a AA battery which Logitech says can allow the mouse to last for up to 24 months. It works with Logi+ Options which provides customisation for changing the DPI and mapping out button inputs, which is especially useful.

Asus ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition

Best wireless gaming mouse
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Zanily powerful
  • Comfortable for smaller hands
  • Functional software and lightning


  • Expensive
  • Software is fiddly to install
  • Chassis may not suit all hand sizes

For those searching specifically for top-tier gaming performance, look no further than the Asus ROG Harpe Ace gaming mouse. This wireless mouse is remarkably powerful, super light and boasts a solid battery life, making it a great option provided you’ve got the budget. 

The ROG Harpe Ace has an understated design akin to the Logitech G Pro X Superlight and the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro. The peripheral is small, narrow and weighs just 54g, making it the least heavy ultra-lightweight mouse our reviewer had encountered.

This also marked the highest DPI sensor on a mouse our tester had ever come across, with the ridiculously high 36,000 DPI allowing every flick of the wrist to be quick and accurate. The Harpe Ace particularly shined when flying around the map in FPS titles, though we wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for the office as the DPI leaves the mouse feeling slightly skittish in slower environments. 

Asus has equipped the Harpe Ace with its own mechanical mouse switches, which we found offered great tactility when gaming. The mouse is compatible with both a speedy USB-A receiver and Bluetooth, meaning you can choose between speed or battery life depending on your priorities. The battery should last up to 90-hours with the receiver or 98-hours using Bluetooth, meaning you should be able to game for a few weeks between charges regardless. 

Asus’ ROG Armoury software lets you remap buttons and configure the lighting zone on the edges of the scroll wheel, though it can take a while to load up. Meanwhile, the Aimlab Settings Organiser offers further functionality but is equally time-consuming to install. 

This small mouse probably won’t be the best fit for those with larger hands and its price definitely makes it an investment. However, if you want a powerful gaming mouse, the Asus ROG Harpe Ace won’t disappoint.

Razer DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed

Best value gaming mouse
rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star rating-star


  • Comfortable form with classic looks
  • 14,000 DPI Focus+ sensor is snappy
  • Decent battery life


  • No RGB will be limiting for some
  • Odd DPI button placement
  • Synapse 3 software feels bloated

In terms of gaming mice, the Razer DeathAdder V2 X Hyperspeed is our favourite wireless option for those who don’t want to spend over the odds.

It might not be the most expensive or flashiest wireless gaming option money can buy, but the DeathAdder V2 X Hyperspeed is functional, which is what allows it to win here. This becomes especially apparent when taking a look at its design. There might not be any RGB, but this more affordable DeathAdder features the same comfortable, classic shape that works well with all grips.

It is quite heavy with a battery inside, weighing at just over 100g, but for us, it wasn’t too much. The only odd thing here is that the button to change the DPI lives on the underside of the mouse, making on-the-fly changes that little bit more difficult.

The sensor packs in a tidy 14,000 DPI’s worth of sensitivity, which is going to be enough for most people. While there are mice out there, including some from Razer themselves such as the Viper V2 Pro, that double the offered sensitivity here, 14000 DPI will be ideal for those gamers wanting to move up the power ladder and who want a capable option to use across a variety of games.

In testing, we found it offered enough sensitivity to feel nice and responsive, complete with accurate tracking. The fact that the DeathAdder V2 X Hyperspeed can connect by both Bluetooth and 2.4GHz HyperSpeed wireless is especially handy, with both offering very little in the way of latency, as well as seamless connectivity. The battery life on offer proved to be decent, too, with it being a marked improvement over other ‘X’ mice in Razer’s back catalogue. It’s quoted to last for 235 hours with HyperSpeed, and a whopping 615 hours with Bluetooth, which means you can go weeks without even thinking about changing the batteries.

There may not be any RGB lighting to speak of, but the DeathAdder V2 X HyperSpeed does come with support for Razer’s extensive Synapse 3 software suite. In testing, we found it to be as functional as usual, with options for reprogramming buttons, changing DPI levels and even calibrating the mouse to a specific mat, which is rather clever.

Which company makes the best wireless mouse?

This is majorly down to personal preference, but for what it’s worth, Logitech has a pair of mice recommended above, and they offer a good range of products.

Which is better: Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz mouse?

This depends on what you’re looking for. Usually, 2.4GHz mice come with less latency and speedier response times than Bluetooth mice, but BT mice are great for convenience when it comes to using them with basically anything. Handily, a lot of the top contenders, like those we’ve featured above, can connect by both means, eliminating the need to choose.

Will a wireless mouse work on any computer?

As long as you’ve either got a spare USB port for a receiver, or your PC has Bluetooth connectivity (if it doesn’t you can buy a dongle to add it), then a wireless mouse should work no problem at all.
