Small, Claw, Wireless...?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking for a small mouse that would work well for a claw grip. It must be wireless. A "gaming" mouse is NOT a requirement.

I feel a bit overwhelmed right now, lots of choices out there. If I could get a few suggestions, I would love to get one picked out by Monday.

I've taken a liking to my Logitech M705 wireless mouse, for use with my work laptop, when I am on the go. It was very important to me to have the thumb buttons for the forward/backward function while browsing, something a lot of these mobile mice don't have. It also has side-scrolling and a switchable detented/free-rolling scroll wheel, two features which I didn't really care about, but don't mind either. It uses the newer stubby Unifying 2.4 GHz USB receiver, so you can leave it plugged in. It does use a laser sensor, which is located off-center, but it works fine for me, on a QCK mouse pad, hotel room desk or whatever reasonably smooth surface. Battery life is supposedly a whopping 3 years; I've only had the mouse a few months, and it's still on the original batteries, so I'll take Logitech's word on it for now. One thing I've definitely noticed vs. all other previous wireless mice that I've used, the M705 has an extremely short "wake-up" delay, when you first move the mouse after a long pause, and there is very little perceptible pointer lag while mousing. I haven't used a modern wireless gaming mouse (for gaming, I prefer my CM Storm Spawn!), like the Logitech G700 or the Razer Mamba, so I can't say if the M705 is on-par in the wake-up delay and lag department, nonetheless, I am quite pleased with its performance, precision and build quality. All in all, it's a very solid little mouse.

Thanks for both responses. I am very interested in that logitech m705 because I already use a unifying keyboard. One less USB plug!

While I do not have bluetooth, whats one more USB plug? Wait...
