What is the reason for requiring a wireless mouse? Is it out of necessity or novelty? The reason I ask is if this is your first foray into gaming with a wireless mouse, prepare to be frustrated. I'm not sure how far wireless technology has come, but I believe the last wireless mouse I attempted to game on was an MX700 back in the day. I believe my progression went MX700->MX510->MX518. The later two of course being wired mice. All I remember is the horrible inconsistency in battery life whenever I tried doing any serious gaming with it. The tracking was OK if I remember right... it was capable of gaming (although I wasn't competing yet I don't believe so this was more casual.. I switched to a MX510-518 because I started getting into serious competitive gaming. The biggest issue I had was the battery life as I said. It would never last the full time that logitech claimed it was on a full charge, and in those days the MX700 was a premium wireless mouse. That mouse is the reason I swore off ALL wireless peripherals except headphones.
If the technology has improved immensely since that time period, then I can't say much. However, everyone who has used a wireless mouse has experienced the one time they forgot to plug it in it's dock overnight, only to log on the next day ready to do some gaming, to find that there mouse is dead.. and if you were like me and didn't have a wired mouse back-up ... you were pretty much screwed. No matter how nice the novelty of wireless is... I never want to be at the mercy of a battery as far as when I can and can't play a game. But like I said, if you absolutely need a wireless mouse, just never forget to plug it back in it's dock when your done... and I'm a firm believer that no wireless mouse will perform as well as a wired mouse...even with how far sensor technology has come. I could be wrong but that's just my personal belief.
Edit: I forgot to mention, I DO currently use a Logitech M325 for my laptop surfing. That mouse actually performs perfectly for desktop use. But I would never dare play a game on it, other than maybe Minecraft
Also it appears wireless battery technology has massively improved since the days of my MX700 with it's 6 foot distance capability, and it's maybe 6-8 hours of battery life when in constant use. Rofl... so you can pretty much forget everything I said other than the fact that a wired mouse will always outperform a wireless one. Edited by KFieLd - 10/24/15 at 3:46pm
