Need Mouse recommendations!!!

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
So I bought the mk550 combo with the wireless mouse and keyboard and to put lightly, the mouse sucks. I'm guessing it has something to do with it trouble reading the mouse actions wirelessly, but after a few weeks I can't take it anymore!

So I've read through some threads here and found to my liking the deathadder and seen many positive reviews for the intellimouse as well.

I can stretch my budget to $50, but would really like to spend the least amount as possible to get a nice wired mouse. In other words, something that I am not going to want to upgrade. It will be used for gaming, I'm only playing diablo right now which isn't too mouse demanding, but still annoying with this crappy mouse.

As far as the mouse's form factor I've only had experience with standard formed mouse so I'm open for whatever is a good deal TBH.

So some guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Do I....

1. Wait for a deal on a deathadder/intellimouse whenever that will be and put through the suffering of a mouse that hardly works?

2. Is there a good deal going on for anything that I can grab up now that will suffice?

3. Wait for one to come up on the "for sale" section of this site?

Thanks for the help everybody!

That's been the one i've had my eye on. It looks really cool and there are a ton of reviews here at OCN on it. Are there any cheaper alternatives?

What I'm reading is that the shape and comfortability is the most important thing to you, while the requirements as far as tracking and precision goes are quite low. Durability and budget are other things you seem to be after.

Some mice, while offering great performance, seem to have a higher failure rate then others. I'm not gonna name and brands or models cos I dont wanna get flamed.

Taking into account what you said I'm gonna go ahead and advice on the Logitech MX518 for the following reasons:
-inexpensive
-wired
-provides all the performance you need
-tracks well on cloth as well as hard surfaces
-many people will attest to its durability
-many people find its shape comfortable to use

The best test, regarding comfortability, is trying it out for yourself though. Just because many people like the shape of a mouse, doesnt mean you will. Given the description of your situation, it might not be necessary to go for these new expensive laser mice (which often are not even better then the MX518).

Not sure about alternative, but this mouse will work in dirt. I have it for the past 3 ears and it works great!

Try ebay or even here..

I've loved my G500. Logitech is great with warranty and customer service and I've liked their drivers the most from the mice I've tried.
