Anyone have some experience with this Monoprice mice?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a friend looking for a budget mouse/keyboard. I decided to look at what monoprice has because ive heard their customer service and quality it pretty good.

This is the mouse i was thinking about getting:
http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=114&cp_id=11401&cs_id=1140101&p_id=11155&seq=1&format=2

Looks sleek and has some good reviews, plus its real cheap for a gaming mouse.

I was wondering if anyone has the mouse and can let me know what they think of it. Or if anyone has a different monoprice mouse maybe? The reviews are all positive but i know sometimes that can be misleading.

Thanks in advance.

It's really hard to give a review on this mouse, man. There is no mention of the sensor, and it's not a widely known device manufacturer, so there's not going to be many sources of information. Personally, I'd rather save up my money and buy a quality value mouse from Logitech, SS, or Razer. At least I know it has the performance and relative build quality I expect from a precision device.

No offense to monoprice, but adding aggressive lines and l337 graphics to a mouse doesn't make it a gaming device. It's about the performance. There's no telling if this thing has a 1m/s perfect control speed or a 4m/s perfect control speed. It could skip like mad. Just something to be aware of. I know it's only a bit over $10, but I'd rather save that money and wait a bit to drop $30 on a G400 and KNOW I got a solid product from a company that backs their hardware.

That's fair and i see where your coming from. I can talk to him about saving a little more money for a solid device, but if he wont budge on the prices then i would still like to hear from someone that may already have the mouse.

If your friend wants a cheap gaming mouse take a look at the Microsoft Intellimouse 1.1 or Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical. You can find them easily on ebay and shouldn't cost you more than $15. It doesn't have all the jazzy lights and macros keys that you find on a more expensive gaming mouse, but the sensor reliable and the shape/weight are ideal for gaming. There is a reason that many people still use them after over a decade.
