self explanitory. I've never had a wireless mouse before but I'm willing to try it if it's better than the MX-510. I will be using the mouse for everything including gaming. Let me know what's up. Thanks.

I used a wireless mouse before. didn't like it cause when the batteries die, there is no warning. You'll be playing a game and there will be a not so noticeable lag. then it will get worse. and worse, until the cursor is jumping around the screen and you think the puter is locking up. I got killed in to many games and went back to good, optical corded mice.

Just my 2 cents.

I love my MX-1000. It has battery indicator lights so you know how much you have left, and it'll go 1-2 weeks on one charge (depending on how much I game) and charges in about 6 hours. Very precise, no lag or delays, a wonderful investment if you ask me.

Here's my 2 pennys... go ahead and use a wireless mouse but for God's sake do not go with a wireless keyboard. Problem with those is that they get GREAT range. And when living in an apartment/duplex/really close houses your neighbors time to time get to see what your typing... like "hot blonde porn" into google and credit card information... funny story acctually about the "hot blonde porn"...

nah, i'm cool. i just got a plain black logitech keyboard for $15 at the computer show. I'm not into all those extra buttons & crap. i just want a dope mouse for gaming.

OK the mx1000 is $67 on newegg and the mx510 is $35... might be leaning for the 510.

The MX-1000 is the best mouse EVER. I cannot find a surface it dosent track on. Hell I once put it on the back of my hand and there was a slight jiggle from my heartbeat! In my opinion it is completely worth it.

Heh, yeah, like the day I got mine I wasn't feeling very well and wanted to stay in bed, but wanted to listen to music, and the thing actually tracked on my bedding and I was able to choose the mp3s I wanted to listen to.. Now that's cool

I hate to be the voice of dissent in this thread, but I HAD an MX-1000. I had to return it because I had grown so accustomed to my Intellimouse Explorer3. First the mouse buttons 1 and 2 are surrounded by a solid strip of plastic, so if you are used to pressing close to the edge of the mouse button you will not be able to press there on this mouse. Second, the scroll wheel's side-to-side buttons are not programmable. Third, the mouse is friggin' huge. I had a hard time using it on the slide out Keyboard/mouse tray on my desk. The mouse 1 and 2 buttons were the deal breaker for me.

However, if you can live with those gripes, it is an excellent mouse. The tracking is amazing and so was the battery life. The extra buttons were nice and most could be programmed to anything you wanted. The ergonomics of the mouse were excellent and extremely comfortable. The range is great, I could even use it from a seperate room! Maybe I am being a little pickey, but I expect utter perfection from a mouse that cost double the price of my Intellimouse.....I suggest you visit Circuit City or Best Buy and at least hold the mouse before you make that purchase. You'll see what I mean.

i have an mx510 and ive used my friend's mx1000 before, and i notice on mear-full battery a small lag but otherwise i liked it a lot. as for the mx-510, i have seen nothin wrong with it, never had any problems with it, the mouseware it comes with is optional but teriffic, but overall they're both great mice

I've ordered myself a Razer Viper 1000dpi mouse today. Hopefully it will be a nice gamer. I got fed up of changing the batteries in my explorer

Yes xms, exactly what I was going to tell him to order. Get the Razer Viper or the Razer Diamondback (which I have heard awesome reviews on from fellow gamers).

You can check out the website at razerzone.com

But you save some money if you just order it from Newegg.

I have got both MX-1000 and 2 MX-510's, the 510's are amazing. They beat the 100 easily, the 1000 is a bit too fast (When i play an FPS, i cant even control it at the lowest sensetivity.) and its also not TOTALLY flat (well mines isnt) i can kind lean it to the right and left. Since the day i got the 1000, i used it once ... and once only. Havnt touched it since, believe me, IMO dont get the 1000 and go for the 510, MUCH BETTER.
