02-04-2004, 04:04 AM
Hello everyone -
i have a request - please state the mouse you are currently using - and what you think about it - even just a mark out of 10 .
note on comfortabilty etc. and prolonged use.
im using the logitech mx 500 and after polonged use your little finger has nowhere to rest and hand starts to seize up lol.
best mouse ever used is the microsoft optical wheel - or its updated version the ms blue.
its conformatble perfectly shaped and perfect for gaming.
reason i ask is for a bit of research before writing an article

Im using the microsoft default optical mouse (doesn't know it's exact name) and i think it's really comfortable and it is cheap too.

igf i were you i'd buy the logitech mx700.
its definitly worlds best mouse.
wireless, but fast as a cable mouse, very comfortable and ergonomic. 9 buttons. optical sensor, very precise.
its the best choice, no metter whether you wanna play games like ut or quake3, or if you just wanna use it for cg.
i know what im talking of. i use it myself.
only thing you have to attend is that it doesnet work on reflective surface such as glass or plastic.
costs about 50-60$ but its really worth it!

well I'm using a LabTec optical mouse, cost about 25$ canadian, so roughly 18$ US. It's supported me through a good year and half so far and it's work perfectly. :D

Well I bought a packard bell optical cordless mouse thinking it would be good to get rid of the wires but to be honest the battery life on it is crap unless you remember to put it in its dock every night. (As you can guess, I don't...) Which means that half way through doing something, the cursor becomes unresponsive & jittery, followed by it winding a wiggly path down to the bottom right corner of the screen for some reason. That leaves me using my wacom mouse, which works fine but does tend to scratch the wacom's cover & that's the reason I bought another mouse in the first place. Doh....
I think I'll ditch the packard bell & end up getting a micro$oft optical mouse WITH cables.

I'm using a Logitech OEM mouse that I got about...4 years ago, I think. I would always go for a Logitech because they are almost everlasting. I've had very bad experience with Microsoft mice, especially the standard models, because they broke pretty quickly.
Since it is an OEM-mouse it is of course nowhere near a expensive mouse, but it is sturdy, effective and I'm feeling very well with it. 3-Buttons, no wheel.
However, I'll be getting an optical mouse soon, I think. :)
