    Default Which mouse do you use?

    Which mouse do you use for your computer or laptop? Wireless or wired?

    I use a wired mouse for my desktop computer and don't use a mouse for my laptop.

    I did purchase a wireless mouse, but it didn't live up to its expectations. I had to change the battery every 2 days or so, so I thought its pointless in having to keep changing the batteries. It was a Microsoft branded mouse, and I was surprised with the problems it gave, when purchasing the mouse I thought ok its a Microsoft mouse would be pretty good, but instead it turned out to be a disappointment. So I thought just stick with the wired mouse...

    I use Logitech VX Nano for my laptop. At home, I have the Logitech MX Revolution mouse.

    Both mice I use are wireless. The VX Nano uses two AAA cells. I use Duracell Alkaline and the batteries last 6-7 months. The MX Revolution mouse has rechargeable batteries and is charged on the cradle. Its battaries don't last as long. When it was new, the batteries used to last some 8-10 days; today, five years later, the batteries last a day or two.

    I use a iBall FreeGo wireless mouse. So far the bateries have lasted a long time, say about 3 weeks, so its good as long as it lasts.

    Sometimes a good branded mouse doesnt always live up to its expectations. I aways find it good to actually see reviews of products or see a product in hand before purchasing it.

    I used Dell Bluetooth Mouse (Rs. 1400) for 3 years until a few months back. Two AA sized Duracell batteries in it used to last for couple of months or so on a 10-12 hours of usage everyday. I had dropped it several times and now it's damaged beyond repair. Since then I've trained my fingers to work on the laptop. I guess I'll never go back to using a mouse unless I start playing PC games or use a desktop again.

    Once you have used a laptop its a bit weird using a mouse again, every one has their own comfort level! My sis in law used a mouse with her laptop, I ask her why she says she finds it more comfortable.

    When using a laptop its less hassle not using a mouse, instead using the touchpad mouse is better.

    I am using a gaming mouse and I have set one profile for daily use. So now I have one-button one-hand. Cut, Copy, Paste, Backspace and Enter. Life is good.

    Usually gaming mouse have extra keys which can be configured to emulate certain key presses which perform some function in game or change mouse properties like dpi settings. Gaming mice have high and adjustable dpi and polling rate. I find them more comfortable to use because of the design(depends on product). Ability to keep multiple key settings is also good.

    I still use my wired mouse which I got with my desktop, I thought of getting a wireless mouse, but because my current one is working fine I didnt think there was a point in getting a new one.

    All you need is the three buttons to work - well mostly two. No need for a fancy mouse.

    Thats a point as long as the product works and performs what its supposed to. Im quite suprised that its working because its been used quite a lot with the desktop then a laptop, then packed in storage and now after unpacking it seems as good as new.

    You use a wired mouse with a laptop, I bet that looks weird.

    I am using a wireless Logitech mouse, have had it for 4 months now, so far so good. After using a wireless mouse it is difficult going back to a wired mouse.

    Logitech M235 and the left click button some times clicks twice or even thrice. The problem goes away when I blow air inside to make the terminals moist as the build up of static electricity is the culprit and Logitech has not resolved this problem even in newer models. It is a good mouse otherwise.

    I use a logitech G5 gaming mouse. Also have a Logitech Wireless Touchpad.
    The G5 has awesome accuracy and customization, and the touchpad, well, its just awesome!

    I haven't used a proper mouse in a while as I use the mouse control on my laptop!! I am so used to it now that I think using an actual mouse would feel weird.

    I am going to buy a new mouse soon as my logitech is playing up too much. It double clicks every time I click once and then I have to keep the buttons pressed to discharge the static electricity build up then it works fine for a while but then starts doing the same thing again.

    This was the same case with me but using an actual mouse is much better and comfortable, you should actually try it out. I tried it and now I find the laptop mouse so uncomfortable to use, if you dont have a desk then it is understandable that the laptop mouse would be used.

    Microsoft mouses are simply a waste of money, they are typically like a toy mouse. I am currently using a Logitech mouse which has been working fine for the past 2 years.

    I wouldn't say it has something to do with brand but the model instead. The same brand has some really good mouse.
