Had a Logitech optical, it went spastic very early on, got a Micosoft optical and it held up better than the Logitech, but now the right button is getting iffy.

I don't want to spend a fortune, but I'd go above entry level for a precise long lived mouse.

I have a cordless rechargeable IR logitech one MX700 came with the keyboard i got....... THIS HAS A 5 YEAR warranty on it and when the keyboard played up at year 3 I emailed them and they sent a complete brand new set ( COMPLETE) out to me.. How old was yours and did you contact them ,all I had to do was send the door off the mouse back and the connector for the base unit and wireless keyboard battery door back to them........ so if its still in warranty give em a shout..it is rare they go wrong.

mind u it was about 65

Are you wanting a chordless optical?

Are they even making them fast enough to be of use Gaming?

I tried them a few years back, and ended back with a chorded one to keep my response speed up.

I had a logitec trackball that lasted almost 10 years..... It just died and I got another Logitech but they dont make the one i had with the removeable ball... it sucks too because that thing lasted so long because it was a breeze to clean. I never saw the point in corless mice or keyboards... they cost more... and .... why.. it is only two wires.. and I figure since I am at my monitor when on my PC anyway... it isnt like Ill be mousing or typing from across the room ...

My logitech is used all the time for gaming... no probs and I use it in C Of D all the time...... never had a prob and love it to death, incidentally I use it for skinning and photo retouching too, so it needs to be accurate and fast..lasts a very long day on a charge too..

Trust me I thought that way too but now I will never go back..... I find that a cordless mouse is rock steady compared to a wired model and the keyboard just rocks.......... batteries in it (None rechargeable) have lasted about 2 years now lol

Logitech MX1000 Laser on a S&S Steel pad - Best system I've come across. It's heavy, durable, with precision optics.

Are you looking to marry this mouse, or just fool around?

I have the Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combo. They are great for my do-it-yourself media entertainment centre. Depends on what you need I guess.

Otherwise, I'd recommend this mouse

I love my Logitech MX510. All those extra programable buttons are just the thing for flight sims.

I love my Logitech G5 Laser gaming mouse (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/mice_pointers/mice/devices/359&cl=us,en).

You can change the dpi from 400-800-2000 dpi.The 2000 is great for web browsing,gaming,while if you want precision,i.e. 400 dpi,that's perfect for photo editing,etc.Plus you can change the weight of the entire mouse,using a built-in removable feature. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I've had this mouse for about 5-6 years as you can see it has two
sensors and will work on anything. At the moment it is used on a blanket
which is protecting an expensive desk- works perfectly all the time every time.
Can't bring myself to part with it for a cordless.

I have this one as well, and have been very happy with it. One overnight charge lasts for several days use. I have never had the battery run out, and I've had it about a year.

I have never compared a wired to a wireless mouse side by side, but I don't see any difference in how the mouse moves. Maybe there is something I don't know...

I like the MX518 which looks a lot like the 1000 but with a mottled grey effect. It`s a real nice Mouse with 2 side buttons that are extremely useful. Highly recommended.

This is wired. I don`t like wireless because the last one I had gave me all kinds of trouble, the biggest being having to recharge the battery all the time.

agreed, ive had the same logitech mx310 for literally 5-6 years now. Mine is a 6 button(very usefull for binding keys to).And its as good as the day i got it.. not a single proble. It runs at 800dpi, and 200 report rate(standard is 60hz i think). Which is all easily controled by the provided software(again not a single problem).

pick a logitech mouse.. and your pretty much set. Its just a matter of choice, in terms of style/colours, number of buttons you need, and whether or not you want to go cordless(i dont).
