  1. hi, i've been gaming for 2 years with wax paper as a mouse pad [ LOL ]

    the other day, my mouse got caught on the wax paper, went for a hard stroke on my mouse, and the whole wax paper tore off

    so basically, im tired of using this dumb wax paper as a mouse pad and im trying to get a good mouse pad and mouse if there is a nice deal on one

    a mouse pad that i'm looking for is a plastic surface like a razer exactmat but i find it too pricey

    if you guys have any recommendations on sites and such, please let me know

    your friendly noob, nosebleedXD​

    Quick on your hands not with your wrist!

    Forget the wax paper and the free mouse pads! Why bother to use those when you can use the Logitech Marble Mouse.

    Very easy to use and it's USB 2.0 optical mouse no bright red LED, to deal with, but it easy to use, might take a while to get use to as your just use your finger to turn the track ball well for the arrow on the screen. It has 4 custom buttons you can program with SetPoint. Cost of this is only $19 bucks. Every system in my mouse uses it. Why bother to move the entire mouse around your table and hurt your wrist? Note this is also for either lefty or righty person.

    It's not free but it's reasonable.....

    Walmart stocks decent generic mouse pads for $2.99. They don't curl, separate, and wear like iron, Well, at least for non-gamer me. Not free, but for immediate infantile gratification, they'll do the trick.

    Circuit City sometimes has really good buys on mice when M$ changes a model or like that, but you need to be patient, and read the ads.

    I always toy with the idea of trying a track ball mouse, I thought it might be good for image editing. Maybe? Anybody?

    I use both a trackball and a mouse depending on what I'm doing. I find that the trackball comes up short when I want very precise adjustments. I don't do much image editing, but when I do, I switch over to a mouse. I stick with a trackball for everyday, large-cursor-movements.

    Bass Ackwards.....

    This is the reverse of what my intuition was telling me. So, this is good insight, thanks much!

    I totally agree with this, and I work with both frequently. I have a very good optical mouse (Logitech G7) and a very good track ball (Kensington Expert Optical).

    Despite using a trackball regularly for years, I still can't use it for precise mousework, at least not as easily and comfortably as I can with a mouse... and gaming is still (mostly) out of the question with it. lol.
