Time for a new mouse

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 
Well, my current mouse is on its way out. Right mouse button warn out, sometimes wont right click, sometimes right clicks a ton of times in one click. Oh well, it was old anyway.

I'm looking for a new mouse. I'd prefer a wireless one, but I will go wired if I HAVE to. Why wireless? Well, I really REALLY hate wires behind my monitor and such, and I've never noticed a difference with my game playing between wired and wireless mice. So don't be all "wireless sux lulz lulz ftFFFFFFFFF*.

My budget is... well... $20. Local stores don't carry anything for that price wireless, and the wired ones that cost $20 or less are for laptops only (aka, too short of wire and too small of mouse). Kind of frustrating.

Any suggestions?

With a budget $20 its gonna be hard to find a good mouse... Right now I'm using the Microsoft Mobile Mouse 3000 and it costed me $30 a long while ago when I first bought it. Great wireless response time, I don't notice any delay. Ambidextrous. Pretty comfortable, obviously not the greatest comfort, but it doesn't cause me any pain. It's fairly small though, obviously with the word "Mobile" in the title its meant for laptops but I use it on a desktop anyways, does its job. Until my Valor gets here of course :3

Well, I'm not looking for an awesome mouse. The most "competitive" gaming I do is Starcraft, and even then I'm not good with ANY mouse. It simply has to work and have a decent range. I don't want to get one only to find out that it can't read my mouse from the other side of the computer (although I have a spare USB port in the front from a card reader I installed that I don't use, so that may not be terribly important except at LAN parties, which are rare). Doesn't need to have a bunch of buttons either, although some programmable buttons would be cool, but then we're entering above $20 territory, aren't we?

I was kind of hoping for suggestions on mice or something, newegg links or something. I'm looking my self, but I honestly don't know what's good or not.

I mean, take this one for example. I saw it in Staples, but, of course, it was at least double that price.

Ok, is ANYONE going to pay attention to the fact that I only have up to $20 to spend on this? And also that I'd prefer a wireless mouse over a wired one? Unless that wired one is awesome or something (I'm looking at you, programmable buttons), but not going over budget?
