If you find (or have found) a mouse that you really, really, really, really like, then... - Page 2

If only I found one that I -really- liked... =/

I agree. Wish I had stocked up on original the original MX518

I think I need to do this with my Logitech G500. Luckily the G5 to G500 was the same "feel", but a step up. I once tried a Mionix Naos and just couldn't get used to the shape... despite it being the same "palm" style grip. #

Had to sell it for a G500 in the end tongue.gif

I totally agree with OP, buy at least 100.

This way, when you reach 80 years old, you'll still have your lovely mouse and won't need to learn how to use your eyeballs for input.

However, since then I have moved on to the Zowie FK. While the WMO is still a great mouse, I for the first time, found a more modern mouse that had a shape that instantly felt right for me, even if it is quite different from the wmo in its dimensions. While I do not prefer it to the wmo (after spending a lot of time with it, it is almost on par in terms of comfort for me) I do think it is the better mouse moving forward. Unlike the WMO I never hit the max perfect tracking speed, and as we start moving on to gaming on larger resolutions, there will come a time when its 400dpi might not cut it anymore.

I now still have a couple of brand new WMO in a drawer somewhere. But it was not a waste of money. They are still a great all-purpose mouse that I can use wherever, and they were not that expensive anyway.

Generally, I would only consider stocking up when you find out it is discontinued, or when you soon expect it will be soon.

 

For me, the Intellimouse Optical is about the combination of comfort and design. I have yet to find a wired mouse that has one button on the left and one button on the right for Back and Forward. My fingers never have to move. I just press and the button presses. For me, the design of this mouse is pure genius. I hope that I am never forced to upgrade (although I am expecting it some day).

@ two cables

I read your sig and the one about then again.

People say then again because they are repeating the thought they had in their head and have a different outcome. At least that's why I say it even though I am not repeating something or someone else. Make sense?

Heh I was thinking about it and just had to respond tongue.gif

On topic. I use cheapo mouses and need to get a real one.

Oh. Well, I've come to just say "but then".

 

Anyway, yeah you do. A good mouse can make a huge difference, especially if you use your computer for more than like 15-30 minutes per day.

most comfortable mouse chassis ever designed IMO was the MX revolution



unfortunately, it's not a gaming grade mouse and there are some nit pick issues i have with it so i never stocked up on it.

really wished they updated the mouse with gaming grade components and maybe adding a few more buttons like the G700 while retaining the MX revolution chassis.

I feel like if someone could put a 3310 on a WMO then give it side buttons and make it just a bit bigger, even maybe Xai/Sensei sized while remaining under 90 g, that would be the absolute perfect mouse for me at least. That shape is tried and true for a reason, and somehow it is very comfortable to use for extended periods despite not being as ergonomic as the MX Rev.
