Weekend Open Forum: What kind of mouse do you use?



Logitech MX Anywhere. For some reason the finger-hold mouses are the only ones that won't give me a cramp and this is the king of those.

Logitech G9x - best mouse I've ever owned. However, it's getting a little long in the tooth and I just bought a Razer DeathAdder which was recently on sale, so will be checking that out soon.

I wish they still made the G9x. When mine died I couldn't find anything that was as good. The closest I've gotten is the G502 with the CM storm spawn as a 2nd.

Over the years I've had lots-o-mice.

Logitech G5 (Both first and second revision)
Razer Diamondback G3
Razer Lachesis (died less than a year old)
Razer DeathAdder (Left mouse wouldn't "click" anymore)
Razer Naga (Left Mouse Double Clicks every time)

Logitech G602... Yes It's wireless... and it's got a low polling rate... but it's a very nice mouse for my baseball glove sized hands.

I have 4 mice I have in a sort of rotation atm:

Logitech G502 Proteus Core
SteelSeries Sensei Wireless
Logitech G9x (still love this mouse..)
Razer Diamondback 3G

I love both the Sensei Wireless and the G502, but I still find myself going back to the old G9x in some of the my gaming sessions. Just love how it feels and responds in gaming.

This really is a 5minute repair job. Get someone to buy you a new omron micro switch and change it (some soldering is needed)

I am wondering how can people use wired mouse in 2015 but I guess there are people for everything... I use G700S wireless.

Currently I am using Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2000, I have one Razer DeathAdder Dragon Age 2 Collector's edition too which I use for gaming. :)

I was loving my R.A.T.9 until I got a new dog and the dog hairs floating around the house were killing the lasers on it so I switched to the Razer Ourobourous which is just fantastic.

I used wired mice at home and work. At work because that is what we are allocated. At home because of my budget!

I have been using the same mouse at home for almost a decade (purchased it in 2006). The Logitech MX518 has been a wonderful mouse for general use and for gaming. At work its a different story. Basically use whatever mouse is hooked up to the computer that I am either fixing or using.

Razer Proclick v1.6 (2007)
Razer Copperhead (2007)
Logitech M185 at work, a cheap nifty wireless mouse.

I currently am using the Logitech Performance MX. I have always used Logitech. My two gripes about the Performance MX: Battery life (charging every two or three days it seems like) and having to plug in a damn micro USB cable to charge it. The Harmony 700 remote had the same thing, and guess what, the USB port broke from plugging it in and now the remote is useless.

Logitech G500 is used on my desktop, and Performance Mouse MX for my laptop. I don't know what anyone else has experienced in battery life but I make sure to turn off my mouse so it doesn't wake my computer, but the battery lasts 3 months without a charge.

Logitech G700s. My only complaints are the short battery life and the stiff charging cord.

I had an MX1000 and MX1100 before that. Yes, I like Logitech cordless laser mice.

Well, I broke so many M$ wireless mice, cat hair jambs the scroll wheel, and to add insult to injury, the cats knock them on the floor, after which they stop working.

Then too, with multiple machines in the same room, sometimes one wireless device will start another.

So, whatever piece of crap the Microcenter in my area has on sale at any given month, is plenty good enough for me.

One could easily argue which one of us is more special. Me because I use wired mice in 2015, or you because you don't.

I realize you already have that worked out to your satisfaction. But, "clinging to the old ways", could also be identified as, "pragmatism".


A basic Microsoft, Dell or whatever mouse. I don't require anything special.
