trackballs and I do not play well together. I am hoping someone here has a good recommendation for a new/different mouse than the one I'm currently using, which is a three button standard from Dell. Any non-trackball mouse recommendations?
I agree with John on the MX mouse, but go with the Performance MX mouse. It has a smaller bluetooth tongle, charges via usb, and can be used while being charged. I have the MX5500 keyboard and mouse combo and love the mouse and keyboard. I have also used the laptop version of the MX- the VX Revolution - and it is great as well. The G9x is also a great mouse but designed more for gaming. It does have a few extra bells and whistles but to me they does not matter that much.
Personally I use a Logitech Invisible Optic cordless mouse. Works great and I think is reasonably priced.
Is yours the LX7?
Not actually sure to be honest. It is a couple years old so I am not sure what the equivalent one is right now but all it has is a forward and back shortcut button right next to the mouse ball. Nothing fancy.
Do a search for "best mouse". There are several threads.
The logitech G9x is pretty darn nice
another vote for the Logitech mice. The M705 ($50) or the MX ($99) are nice. Go, wireless!!
Think about a 3D connexion mouse too! I was a long time critic thinking it was just a gadget, until I actually gave one a shot. You'll never go back after those....of course that's in addition to a mouse.
Logitech MX is VERY nice. Also, I echo John's feelings regarding the 3D Controller. 1 to 2 weeks of getting used to it and you will not want to be without it!
After looking at the combo you mention, I think we have a winner. Thanks for all the wonderful suggestions guys. Much appreciated.
Randy keep in mind that the MX5500 combo does not come with the Peformance MX mouse but the MX that comes with it is still nice. Keep the Dell mouse as a backup for when the mouse in the combo goes dead you will have to put it on its charging cradle.
Hmm, which one is it, if you know?
Randy it is a mouse that they designed specifically for that combo. I believe that the combo was out first and then the Performance MX was released at a later date just not quite sure. I do know that you will be satisfied by either mouse. So, it just comes down to the question if you need a keyboard or not as well.
I recently purchased a Cyborg R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse for my home PC but ended up taking it to work for CAD. I love this thing, its very adjustable (thumb angle/position, wrist length, pinky rest, weight), very comfortable and great for people like me with big mitts. It is probably one of the largest mice out there but I really like it. There are less expensive models and a wireless model as well.
