Best wireless mouse?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I play games from the comfort of my couch, feet up, games on the TV. Thing is, good wireless peripherals are hard to come by. As of right now, I have a Logitech Wireless Wave combo (Pictures and what not)

I'm beginning to get back into my gaming ways and was wondering what would be the best wireless mouse? I have been tempted to buy the Mamba because it's almost a perfect mouse, but I have read some pretty bad reviews.

I'll be posting in the keyboard section as well

Gets a lot of hate here but I think the Razor Mamba, it can use wireless and wired, it will be replacing by X8 when that brakes.

G700 > X8 > Mamba > Kova > Rat 9 > everything.

Those are the only 5 worth looking into IMO. I had issues with my Mamba so I returned it and got a G700. It's been solid for the past 10 months for me. I wouldn't recommend any of these mice for FPS though. It's not because they're wireless though, but because their sensors are not as good as other mice available.

I use a similar set-up on my HTPC, except my Wave keyboard is the older 2.4 GHz "Pro" version, and the included mouse is the MX1100. It also used the gumstick-sized USB receiver, not the new short Unifying receiver. It's not too bad, but the mouse will go to sleep and there is a delay before it starts working again after you move it. Gaming with a mouse from the couch is a mixed bag for me, it's comfortable enough, but as a medium-sense mouse user, I can't play the same way, as I do on my desktop. One tip I can give you, is NOT to use a metal mousepad with a wireless mouse, especially when you are sitting 8-10 feet away from the receiver. A metal mousepad will adversely affect the wireless range and you may get signal drop-outs. I solved that problem by getting a glass Steelseries mousepad. I would probably go for the G700, if I were to get a new wireless gaming mouse today, and I would highly recommend getting an SS glass mousepad to go with it, for a stable smooth surface. The Mamba uses the Philips Twin-Eye sensor, which has a number of tracking issues, reported all over these forums and elsewhere. The G700's A9500 sensor isn't perfect either, but it's generally better than the PTE sensor.

Razer Mamba. I don't know what bad reviews you have read and what they said, but I've owned a Mamba for over a year now.

Best mouse, let alone wireless mouse, I've ever owned. I've even considered buying the newer version of it
