OP  3/18/13 10:08:57 PM#1

Hey guys! Soooooooo as the titel says I need a wireless mouse!

 

I currently have a Logitech Performance MX wireless mouse. It is actually a greta mouse for about 4-6 months. After 4-6 months the left mouse button wigs out! It will double click when trying to single click and when trying to hold down the left mouse button and drag it will just do stupid stuff.

I am a graphic designer/web designer during the day and a gamer at night! So I have to ge tme a new mouse because this left button is driving my crazy!

The worst part is this is my second Performance MX bought in 8 months. Logitech customer support is horrible. I just want to part with this company.

 

So, I am lookign for a good wireless mouse. I game and work on my laptop. I take my laptop and mouse to work and on the road when I travel with work. This is why I want wireless.

I am currently lookign at the Razer Orochi. I hear all this great stuff about Razer mice. The other 2 wireless mice razer produce have this stupid docking charging station so that is a no go for me. 

Anyone else have any experience with other wireless mice? Any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate and suggestions and advice guys! I appreciate it! THANKS!!!!

 

Love you!

Unfortunately, I don't have a recommendation for a wireless mouse, but I can highly recommend Razer. I just bought a Razer Naga, and though I wish it was just a little bigger; it has been a terrific enhancement to gaming and my development environment.

Check out the cyborg RAT 9 .I use the seven and it blows razer away. Unbeleivably adjustable too. Can be made higher wider longer and so on . You really should check it out.

Is there some reason why you want a wireless mouse as opposed to a wired one?  The wire is what makes it work reliably, and wireless technology is intrinsically unreliable.

You said that the reason is because you take your laptop and mouse to work and on the road.  That's a reason to want a laptop as opposed to a desktop.  It's not a reason to want a wireless mouse as opposed to a wired one.  Wired mice are highly portable, too.  If the cord is too long for your taste, you can use a twist tie to keep it mostly tied up and effectively much shorter.

graphic designer and gamer, then you want a wired mouse period heh sorry.

Wireless is just unreliable and problematic, with a wireless you will just end up getting pains if you use it many hours a day for precise work such as graphic design and gaming.

That said, you need one that fits your hand, and finding a shop where you can touch quality mice is not an easy task.

 

I loved my Roccat Kone, it is big but fits my hand well and the quality was recognizably better than anything else I have tried.

I now use a Logitech G500 which is really too small and flattens out too much on the right side for my taste, but for some it will fit.. one thing to note is the scrollwheel is very loose and has no brakes (it will keep spinning for a long time).

That Razer with the metal (forgot its name) look also felt good, although I have only tried it at a friends place.

If you use your mouse many hours a day, quality really matters.

G500 has "brakes". There's a button right by the scroll wheel that will activate the "brakes".

For me, logitech provides the best and the highest quality for wireless mouse. And the top wirelessmouse that i can recommend is Logitech M305 Wireless Mouse. Very light and handy. I hope it helps.

If it's only 4-6 months old why not just warrenty it ? Call logitech and give them the code on the bottom of your mouse and they'll send you a new one.

I would never recomend a wireless mouse because they all seem to be POS but then so are wired mice I guess.

Logitech Anywhere mouse is very good, very precise on every surface.

The new Steelseries WoW mouse should be good if you need extra buttons.

I did that and got a replacement mouse. They sent a replacement and 3-4 months later I was getting the left click issue again. When I called back to get it replaced the customer service guy told me the warranty does not cover a "replacement" mouse. Really pissed me off.

I like wireless because I often use my laptop on the plane and while on a long train ride. So the cord just seems to be a hassle. I never tried a ziptie though haha....maybe I should try that.

I just like having a wireless mouse I guess. I am really leaning toward the Razer Orochi because it has both wired and wireless capabilities! Only thing I may not liek is it seems a little small. When I am designing I palm my mouse but when gaming I am a claw type guy. Hmmmmmmm.

Oh yea and I have a question for SLASHEN. Is the RAT 9 wireless? and if so how is the battery life? 

You guys are making me want to look into wired now haha. I appreciate all the responses!

do it wired is better in all aspects, wireless honestly has very little benifit to it and much hassle, plus they tend to break.

personly i recommend the G600, but its not for everyone as the third button under the ring finger causes some dicomfert, but it has the largest range of buttons on a MMO mouse i have seen yet and unlik the razer naga its easy to tell which button is which by fill alone.

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to

If you're looking into wired mices, take a look at the Mionix 8200 (or the 5000). Best mouse I've ever used (not the Razer crap). If you're looking for Wireless.. can't help! Sorry!

I have a microsoft sidewinder 2000 gaming mouse (wired) as i am also not a fan of wireless keyboards/mice.

I would NOT get another one of these mice as i have had problems with it and am on the 3rd one (all having the same problem start up) as in move the mouse left and right and it would move diagnally, mnove it up and down and it would hardly move at at all, and trying to slowly move the mouse would actually freak it out. Also the mouse buttons tend to double (or sometimes treble) click with 1 press and the scroll wheel is slack.

The thing i did like is the DPI adjustment and weight adjustment, it is also a fairly big mouse, not a small thing (those feel really weird to me now) after using this one with its size.

I may look into other gaming mice but i do have a price limit set and £60+ is not it, not for a mouse anyways.

i suggest the cyber rat then as it has alot of the good of that mouse and none of the crap, if thats the style you like.

i also have used one of those and to be frank hated the damn thing.

Every Microsoft mouse I had died on me.  Either the laser went out or the circuitry went bad.

 

I use a Logitech G510.  I find it comfortable for gaming.  The scroll wheel seems to be fine after a year of use.  I like being able to program the side buttons as well.  On top of that, it came with a Wave keyboard which I also find to be comfortable for typing papers for school.  Both the keyboard and mouse use the same wireless receiver.  Look for Logitech's "Unifying" receiver compatible peripherals if you want something similar.

 

I couldn't even begin to guess what kind of mouse is best for 3d modeling or CAD work.  I might suggest a trackball mouse for the precision.

 

Edit:  A lot of people are saying wireless is unreliable.  I don't believe them.  I have not had problems with interference or the mouse just acting up.  In addition, the battery life on the M510 I'm using is amazing.  After a year on the two AA batteries that came with the mouse, it shows 25% battery left.  I'll wait for the batteries to die, but I have a spare set on hand for that moment.

I'm currently using a razer naga and have no complaints about it.  It's wired though...as any gaming mouse should be.  Wired mice are much more reliable, generally can do more (higher dpi and what nots).  The Razer Naga I have is highly customizable and rugged, which is why I'll probably never buy another mouse other than Razer.  I've had my mouse fall out of my truck onto concrete and it didn't even scratch it (literally).  I had a logitech MX510 before this one, and it fell out of my truck and busted at the seams.  I don't really like wireless, but Razer has come out with the Razer Naga Epic.  It's just like the other naga's but with wireless option.

There are a number of problems to which wireless mice are prone but wired mice are simply immune, from interference with the signal to batteries dying to losing one of the 2-3 components that you need to make the mouse work to delaying a response due to entering a power-saving mode at an inopportune time.  While all of the problems are fixable in controlled laboratory conditions, that doesn't necessarily describe the real world.  In controlled laboratory conditions, your "up to 50 Mbps" or whatever it is Internet connection really could go at the rated speed all day, every day.

As I see it, a mouse that works right 99% of the time isn't at all similar to one that works right 100% of the time.  Even 99.9% isn't all that close to 100% of the time.  The latter is pretty easy to do with even a cheap wired laser mouse.  With wireless, not so much.

It's really just a question of how much worse a wireless mouse is than a wired one.  And then wireless adds to the price tag on top of that.

I personally use a wired mouse that I bought for about $15 or so nearly four years ago.  In that time, it has only acted up once, even though I used it very heavily.  That one time, I opened it up to see if I could find a problem, couldn't, closed it, and then it mysteriously started working again.  I've used it enough that most of the paint has worn off, but it still works perfectly.

The Razer Naga Epic is a great mouse, I had my original Naga for over a year and decided I wanted wireless so I was given the Epic as a gift. You can use it wired or wirelessly, and the extra buttons on the mouse help with a number of things from gaming to creating shortcuts in other programs.
