Wireless mouses

Post by Jonesy » Wed 16 Jan, 2013 6:53 am

Well my work mouse of 4 years has just died and I'm after something similar to what I currently have.

I've currently got a Microsoft laser 6000 v2.0 which is very comfy and has all the extra buttons that I can program. Went looking for a replacement yesterday and everything is design for a 3 year olds hand.

Do you guys have a good gaming mouse or something similar you would recommend?

I use an M570 wireless Logitech trackball most of the time and a Microsoft Sidewinder mouse for gaming.

My mouse is older than the one in the link. And since you asked about wireless mice here's the wireless version: X8 Sidewinder

I think the new Sindewinders come with weights so you can set how heavy you want them to be. Good for FPSes.

Jonesy, I buy nothing but Razer mice these days.

I have a DeathAdder Black Edition now.

I can't remember which one of these Mice are wireless, but I have NEVER been a fan of wireless peripherals on my main machine.

For work I find wireless the best because I'm not restricted by the cable if we are having a meeting at my desk.

I'll have a look at those tonight.

I love wirless except I tend to use wired for gaming.

Wireless poll rates are lower.

What is a pool rate, and why should I care about it?
