Hyperscrolling is a feature in some mouses that allows users to scroll wheel freely without any clicks. This feature can be used to get an advantage while especially FPS games, by binding with other keys. Not only for gaming, but hyperscroll mouses can also be very useful for programmers and online readers as you can use them to scroll at a fast speed without having to scroll your mouse wheel hundreds of times. In this article, I have compiled a list of best mouses with hyperscroll feature you can find on the market today.

Aesthetically the white 2S looked much better on my white desk, in fact it was a perfect match. The light grey version of the 3, leaves me wishing that they released a white version with silver accents instead. But considering the button placement of the 2S, I’d rather deal with the undesirable color of the 3, than stress my thumb to use the forward and back buttons on the 2S.
The 3 has significantly better placement for my larger than average hands. On the 2S it required pulling my thumb so far back, that it initially felt like my thumb was going to dislocate (maybe if I used the joint of my thumb to press it, it would’ve been easier, but the buttons being stacked on top of each other on the 2S made it a bit difficult to target the button with the joint of my large fingers; using the tip my thumb was easier). On the 3 that isn’t a problem. However, the 3 causes the horizontal scroll wheel to be so high, that it also causes my thumb to be in an awkward / uncomfortable position when trying to scroll horizontally. Fortunately, I don’t require scrolling horizontally that often, and after awhile maybe I’ll learn better hand placement. Probably would’ve been better to put those buttons almost directly where the thumb rests (only slightly above), instead of completely above the thumb (therefore the horizontal scroll wheel could’ve been lower). It’s usable, just know it might cause some initial discomfort for large hands / long fingers.
The vertical scroll wheel is great. Feels much better than the scroll wheel on the 2S, but it may take some fiddling with the Logitech Options program to get it to automatically switch to free scrolling based on your desired speed. The default setting switches it too easily, and the jump from ratcheted scrolling to free scrolling speed is significant. You might find yourself wanting to just scroll a few lines faster, and then suddenly you’re all the way at the bottom of a webpage.

3. Logitech G502 Hero
The Logitech g502 was always a quality mouse and tons of people love the thing just based on the design and overall quality of the mouse; That being said, there are a few things to consider if you’re thinking about getting this one in particular.
Pros of Logitech G502 Hero
- Comfortable shape for most right handed people, but should be more comfortable for people with medium to large size hands.
- Good build quality which easily places it in the same category as other ‘premium’ around this price point or even a bit higher.
- Scroll wheel: this is one of my personal favorite features of the mouse. Allows infinite scroll to get through annoying EULA pages quicker and also quickly raise or lower volume on YouTube or other video streaming sites, but without sacrificing the much needed precision of the standard mouse wheel steps.
- Sensor: The Logitech Hero sensor has been tested numerous times and found to be roughly on par with the PMW3360 series sensors (including the 3366 on the original g502) while being advantageous for usage in wireless mice due to the lessened draw of power which allows for a longer battery life.
Cons of Logitech G502 Hero
- Weight: This thing is one of the heaviest mice I’ve used for an extended period of time. I don’t know exactly how much this weighs, but it feels pretty similar to the original, which I believe weighed in a little over 130 grams. Most gaming mice target a weight of 100g or LIGHTER, since lowering the weight of the mouse will make extended use easier and will allow for a greater degree of control.
- Not a truly “safe” shape, this may or may not matter to you, but I felt that it’s worth mentioning. Obviously this is a mouse for right handed people, and it may not necessarily be a great fit for you if your hands are very small.
