I've had way more wired mice break than wireless. Usually it's the wire that causes me the problems.

If you have a rodent, a cat or a dog that likes to eat the wires around your house just go wireless. It would be the only reason, for me, to get a wireless mouse. But i do not have any rodent problem :D so probably i would recomend any of the mice i have been using the last 3 years: Razer mice from the NAGA range.

But Buyer Beware: curiously or not, on the previous couple of Nagas that died right on my hands i had a left clickbutton problem. The more i used the mouse left click the less reliable the left button would be, until it reached a point where i was hammering and punching the left button for it to work, which is not the way it is supposed to work. The same happened to the middle button/mouse wheel on my previous Nagas. I clicked it once and it never got up again after some months of use. I am a gamer and none of the people i play with had a problem like that with a roccat or a steel series or even a logitech. Razer nagas tend to be a little bit fragile and slightly less durable due to reliability. BAsed on my 3rd Naga mouse experience.

My 3rd naga mouse is surprising me tho. I acquired a Razer Naga EXPERT mmo gaming mouse  which is in everything similar to the previous Nagas i owned, but it comes with 3 types of interchangeable grip panels so the user can feel which one is more confortable.

Said that: it's a wired mouse and i do really start noticing a minimal, micronesimal increasing gap between the pressure applied to the left mouse button and the actual click - something that not happens to the right click button which is used way less times. 

So i fear that in 6 months i will be buying another mouse. If that happens i would probably look for a more robust build mouse like a ROCAT or a steelseries tbh. Nagas are good all around, but if you don't have the hand and the silky smooth touch of any given princess and, adding to that, If you DO have that 10 years Vet. major league marble play index finger spurts now and then, then it is assured that the naga will be blown away from the palm of your hand like sand on a wind storm insome given day.

 

Feather out

I currently have a Razer Mamba, which was their first Wired/Wireless mouse.

When I got it, I had a Best Buy gift card to burn, and thought "What the hell" - to try it out with my HTPC.

I had tried a Razer before, and it didn't last very long at all - 6 months and the scroll wheel went out, warrantied that one and the next one lasted a couple of months before a mouse button went out. So I was skeptical.

This one has lasted about 16 months so far, and now the RMB is starting to get sketchy. It works well enough wireless, but does not have a replaceable battery, so once it's dead, it's dead and you have to plug it in to use it - unlike most travel mice which use AA's or some such and you can just pop a couple fresh ones in. I use it exclusively wired now on my main PC - it fits my hand well (very similar in shape/size the the Logitech G5) - I don't like the rubber on the sides as it tends to get slippery after a while. Given the cost, I wouldn't recommend anyone buy one (I think I paid $30 out of pocket, since i had a $100 gift card to burn), but if you got one cheap it's not utterly horrible. I don't know how it compares to the new mouse, but sounds similar.

I do no use Razer drivers/Synapse/whatever - so it's all under default settings. The Razer driver is very ... intrusive, and I've had some issues with it in the original version; I'm sure it's improved since then, but it seems I always seem to find some compatibility issue somewhere whenever I use manufacturer's drivers for Keyboard/Mice, and end up having to uninstall them.

My favorite mouse of all time so far has been the Logitech G5 - but it is corded and no longer in production. My G5 lasted 3+ years.

I use a logitech G600. It's a monster, but my gorilla hands fit it quite well and i have enough buttons and button combo's to almost play games one handed if the urge so hits. For just about all of my pc games, i only use WASD for movement, and everything else is on the mouse. Has been amazing thus far.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

Sorry for the delayed response. yes the RAT 9 is wireless. It comes with 2 batteries that are charged by usb and super fast to switch. Check the RAT out on the web. It is very expensive but worth every penny in quality and performance.I have owned just about every other gaming mouse on the market and this thing has no rival. You can even adjust the weight. Most of the mouse is metal and hardened plastic with different adjustments on the whole mouse. its an awesome mouse .

That's a bit of an overstatement.  A quality wireless mouse may have slight nuances which make it slightly inferior to a wired mouse of the same model.  It just depends on what you buy.

As I said, my Logitech M510 has not caused me any issues for gaming or regular use that others claim plague wireles mice.  Sleep mode is barely noticeable.  I have had no interference issues or any kind of lack of responsiveness.  The durability is great and the battery life is amazing.  I think people are either buying cheap wireless mice or putting their receivers too far from the mouse.

It depends on what you buy, and what you have nearby that could interfere with the signal, and a bunch of other things.  It's not a question of whether wireless is less reliable than wired; it's only a question of how much less.  Under some circumstances, the answer can be "not very".  But that's hard to predict, as wireless interference can be finicky.

If a wired mouse will work for your needs, then get a wired mouse.  Whether it's a lot better than a wireless mouse would have been or only a little, it's better--and cheaper.

I have had this G700 from Logitech for 3 years and it still works like its brand new. I did replace the feet once so far on it because the Razor Vespula pad (awesome pad even though its a bit pricey) I use seems to eat them up a bit (probably because I push down it when I get all ramped up playing FPS games). I use Sanyo 2400mah batteries in it and when it goes dead I pop in another one off the charger. It also has a wired usb connection but I never use it because I hate wired mice. The software is pretty good for it, you can pretty much do anything with it and the dpi on the fly changes are great for whatever you want, there are 5 different ones you can change to whatever you like in incriments of 50 from 200-5700. I use around 400 for sniping in FPS games all the way up to 3200 in Skyrim.

The usb little transmitter I have plugged into the back of my keyboard which is right below the mouse on a pull out shelf thing and never had a problem with connection. I can walk across my room and the mouse still works.

The only thing that sucks is the scrolling is not smooth on web pages, there used to be a program they had but they just updated the software for the mouse and now it doesnt scroll smooth anymore. There is probably something I can do about it but I'm used to it now so I don't really care. But that is the only complaint I have about it.

I have used a lot of wireless mice that people said were "fine." Those people must not PVP. At all. In 3 different states and in parta of western Europe, the 3 wireless mice I tried were each terribly slow. Maybe if a person's own reaction times are slow, they won't notice. I don't know. But, insofar as my gaming experiences, wireless mice have been light years behind. Anyway, this guy you quoted reminds me of a guy I rand into the other day. He said Windows 8 was a fine gaming OS. Sure, ot *might* work fine for some people, but there is also a chance that it will render your gaming rig useless out of nowhere and have to be replaced. Same with wireless input devices.
