The Roccat Kone Pro Air is one of our favorite gaming mice, not only because it has outlandish, semi-transparent LED buttons, but because of its deeply satisfying click action. If you’re the kind of person to get an emotional high from clicky mechanical keyboards, then this mouse will pair well with your sensory palate.
Highly customizable mice can be powerful tools for gaming (or for work) and while the Razer Basilisk Ultimate has cycled off our list of best gaming mice, it remains a solid option. It has 11 programmable buttons, a comfortable ergonomic design, and a highly sensitive optical sensor.

The Elgato Stream Deck is one of the most popular tools for this, with 15 programmable LCD-illuminated buttons that can be customized to launch certain apps, run scripts, or integrate directly with the apps you’re using. It’s rare that the Stream Deck drops to a price this low, so it’s a great time to grab one.
