Christmas Gift Guide 2017: Gaming Mice under Php 5K




We dove into the budget gaming mice segment before (check that guide out here) where we found ourselves a treasure trove of choices. Now, it’s time to enter the mainstream domain where we’ll be greeted by familiar gaming brands that offer top-notch quality products. The choices here will be fewer, but a lot beefier in terms of performance, specs, and features.

Of course, we are also nearing the holidays which means sales are about to rain down, and it’s the perfect time to get your “gamer” loved one a new companion. Be sure to keep an eye out for some items on this list as they might get a price cut in the coming days. Let’s get to it then, here’s our 2017 Christmas Gift Guide for Gaming Mice under Php 5K.

Author’s Note: Prices are subject to change without prior notice and may vary depending on the retailer or shop. We focused more on listing readily available products.
