Can't deal with Logitech anymore, they keep breaking. So anything but Logitech
I like a 5 or 7 button mouse with cord, no wireless.
What does everyone use and like?
What Logitech do you use,I use MX-518 and it work awsome.
Sorry to hear about bad experiences with Logitech. I use the Performance MX series and am very happy with it. It is pretty big but comfortable for all-day use. It is wireless, but the battery life is very good!
I'm in love with my Logitech G3....
I wanted a symmetrical mouse without a side switching scroll wheel and with laser high-res optics. The G3 has it. I am using mine for 4 years now without problems. I have got one spare but they are not for sale anymore. So when these are broken I'm in trouble...
I like it so much, I already have a spare as well. High enough resolution that I can cover left to right on both monitors in about 2" of movement.
Good morning 1-9GVX4H,
A dead one,
Sorry couldn't help it,
I've used a Logitech VX Revolution Laser Mouse for the last four years and have been very happy with it's battery life, fit and performance.
As a matter of fact, I like it better than the newer MX 500 and 700 sereies.
One thing: I seriously suggest treating the purchase of a mouse like that of a musical instrument. I wouldn't by anything without first knowing how it feels. Things you want to be sure are comfortable: the weight, button action, button placement, nuetral hand position and tracking response (how it moves under your hand).
Not using it as a foot peddle are you?
MX-518 for the past 5 years, no issues so far......but the space ball was a joke and trashed.
I've been through two MX 500 in the last 6 months, the middle button goes out, before that it was two corded logitechs, forget the model, the cord went out on one and the lazer on the other. Also had a 3 way set of logitech speakers go out, lost the bass channel. 10 years ago I bought two mouseman+ and they are still working fine. So I know Logitech can build good stuff, just not anything I've had lately.
just bought an A4-Tech gaming mouse, it's really smooth and super adjustable but I'm going to have to get used to the thumb button.
"What Is a Good Mouse?..... a dead one"
Yes John I have 4 Logitech mice, they are all dead thanks to "planned obsolescence"
Looks like Hewlett Packard is having the same problem, they are going downhill fast thanks to similar policies.
A good mouse in order would have to be Mickey, Minnie but the best would have to be DangerMouse (uk users should know him).
Hvae a great Xmas and New Year
Thanks for all the help over the past year
So no one is using a Microsoft or Kensington mouse?
I am using a Microsoft mouse. it is cheap and simple, but I have been very pleased with it. I bought it in a rush as my previos mouse bust, and planned to get a better one later, but 8 months later i am still using it. It is wireless, but the battery lasts for ages, and it comes with a charging cradle.
I use a cheap Kensington, works ok for me,
Logitech all the way. Great selection, product and comfort. When I have broken one they replace it no questions asked and don't even ask for you to send the broken one back so it truly is a free replacement.
Cordless is also the way to go since you don't have tangles or recoil.
Also, check out this thread.
I'd Say Just try any of the Gaming mosue from Logitech,Razer,Steel Series,Roccat (Pro Stuff). In Gaming we have lots of choices.
Does any one use "Razer Naga" for CAD.Ive used it for gaming (not as good as it looks) .
@Robert if Tangling wires are a problem .take a look at Bugees offered by Razer (Bit of an overkill for CAD but can make your Desktop look L33t)
I completely agree with John Burrill "I seriously suggest treating the purchase of a mouse like that of a musical instrument"
Logitech with 2 button and scroll - the best choice for work. cheap and reliably. the others quickly take off at a hard work
Update. I'm now using a Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer 3.0
This is the same mouse that has been produced for over 10 years. It has an updated laser though.
You can get them new on Ebay for $30. My first one has lasted 3 years now.
It's as large as a Mouseman + and far more reliable than any Logitech mouse I've used recently. I went through 4 Logitechs in 3 years. Either the cords would break or they would just quit.
Plus none of the current Logitechs are as large as the Mouseman +, if you have large hands it helps ergonomics to have a larger mouse.
Best Mouse Ever!
None of your fancy pants 20 button mice here.
Logitech Performance MX - I have 1 at work and 1 at home. It is comfortable and has buttons that easy to customize.
+1 for Performance MX. If you prefer wired, the Func M3 is good for those with larger hands.
This is my favorite mouse!
The only good mouse is the dead mouse. Period.
You beat me to it
Just for the record, I work for Woodstream Corp. One of our divisions is Victor. Check us out on the web - we're good at solving that problem.
Logitech M-BA47. I wish it had a laser, but if I keep it clean, it's fantastic. In terms of ergonomics, it's the best there is because they put the thumb button down low, where my thumb naturally rests. I'd buy a newer model if they didn't have the thumb button in an awkward position, where I have to reach for it. My 15-year-old Logitech mouse was getting a little sloppy and I found a slightly-used one on E-Bay. Now I'm happily mousing again.
I loathe Microsoft mice because they require the installation of some pretty awful software. I've also found that they tend to break a lot. Of course, I haven't bought one in years because Logitech makes a superior product.
By the way, if you're breaking Logitech mice that often, they should be under warranty. You should send them in for repair.
+1 more for Performance MX. Holds two AA batteries and makes them last a year.
