The weather is cooler, the leaves are turning and, after delaying summer, Prime Day 2020 deals have finally arrived to usher in the start of the fall sales season. The big annual Prime blowout for Prime members on Amazon is the best time of the year before Black Friday to shop for everything from essential household items to electronics. There are some particularly good Prime Day gaming deals available right now. If you're a Prime member looking to upgrade your PC gaming and save some cash, read on because we've picked the five best deals on Prime Day gaming mice here.
– $ 20, was $ 50
If you're looking for a simple, precise gaming mouse with no gimmicks, it's hard to get much better (or much cheaper) than the Razer DeathAdder Essential. It may lack the bells and whistles of some of its more expensive brethren, but the DeathAdder has it where it counts with mechanical switches, five programmable buttons, a contoured rubber handle, and a 6,400 DPI optical sensor. One of our favorite workhorse gaming mice, the DeathAdder can be yours for a very tempting $ 20 after a $ 30 discount on Prime Day.
– $ 25, was $ 35
Another great cheap gaming mouse is the Predator Cestus 310 from Acer, a brand no stranger to PC gaming. Like the DeathAdder, the Predator Cestus has durable mechanical switches that are rated for up to 10 million clicks, while six buttons provide enough macro input for most games. You also have four programmable DPI settings – 800, 1,600, 2,600, and 4,200 – so you can adjust the mouse sensitivity in a snap. The Predator Cestus 310 gaming mouse can be yours for $ 25 on Prime Day. However, if you want higher sensitivity or more buttons for MOBAs or MMOs, our next pick may have what you need.
– $ 28 was $ 80
Logitech has long been a big name in the PC accessories world, and the G502 SE Hero gaming mouse doesn't disappoint. With 11 programmable buttons, built-in memory that lets you set up up to five different macro profiles, five removable 3.6 gram weights, and programmable RGB lighting, the Logitech G502 SE Hero is one of the most customizable mice you can buy . The optical sensor also offers a DPI of up to 16,000 (of course also adjustable), which covers a very wide range of sensitivity for every type of game. At $ 28 after a $ 52 discount on Prime Day, you won't find a gaming mouse with more features for this price.
– $ 55, was $ 70

The Razer DeathAdder is so good that it deserves two points in our roundup, and the DeathAdder v2 offers some nice improvements over the standard Essential model. It has the same palm-filling design as its siblings, but the DeathAdder v2 has three more programmable buttons (for a total of eight) as well as a customizable optical sensor with 20,000 DPI and five built-in memory profiles for your macro settings. The DeathAdder v2 also features Razer's Chroma RGB lighting which you can sync with other Razer accessories to create a custom desktop environment. For Prime Day, the DeathAdder v2 is reduced to $ 55 for Prime members ($ 15 savings).
– $ 100 was $ 150
It should come as no great surprise to see Razer's name three times on this list given the breadth of its PC gaming lineup, and the Basilisk Ultimate HyperSpeed is the cream of Razer's gaming mouse crop. This aptly named Basilisk Ultimate is the upgraded wireless version of the excellent Basilisk mouse we tested several years ago, and it's even more impressive now. In addition to the excellent ergonomics, the Basilisk Ultimate mouse offers an optical HyperSpeed sensor with low latency that is adjustable up to 20,000 DPI, 11 programmable buttons and adjustable Chroma RGB lighting. A very nice $ 50 discount is your chance to snag that great Prime Day gaming mouse deal for a Benjamin.
