Default Which mouse to catch???

Hello,

Well here is the story. I seem to go through alot of input peripherals, and although it seems as though I have an obsession for them, or some form or illness, they always screw up on me ...

I purchased a Labtec Wirelss Optical Desktop solution a while back, and experienced that I couldn't use the keyboard for gaming...because it couldn't send mutliple signals at once. So keys would keep getting jammed! However, the mouse was excellent. I had to hook up my wired keyboard to get somewhere. So I decided enough is enough having to switch back and forth from wired to wireless, and journeyed to the PC store to buy a Microsoft Standard Wireless Optical Desktop Solution.

I'm now typing on the Microsoft Wireless Multimedia Keyboard, part of a £49 bundle. But instead, I'm having to use a wired Logitech PS/2 mouse alongside. Reason? Because the Microsoft Optical Mouse is extremely unresponsive, slow and drags behind. I trusted Microsoft this instance, but I see that I need a change in attitude.

Now for the bulk of the post :P. I'd like to purchase a wireless optical mouse, at least 800DPI and that is perfectly relliable for high precision co-ordination like gaming. Now now, I know that the real hardcore gamer wouldn't dare touch a wireless mouse, but I don't like wires :freak: :drool:!

My solid target, is below the £20 mark, and maybe, even perhaps up to £28. So relatively cheap but relliable. Please any mice professionals out there!? Where is a good deal, and is this a reachable target?

I am thinking of getting the logitech mx1000, it has dropped 20$USD recently. I am sure you can find a place in england to find mice, so I am not going to give newegg links. The mx700 is a little cheaper, and still good quality. I like the cordless version. I would also suggest the mx500. Basicaly logitec makes the best mice.

I heard the MX1000 takes some getting used to, but once you get used to it, its the best mouse you've ever had.

The mx1000 is out of the price range he listed, but if he wants the best it is. Those i know who have it, have nothing bad to say about it. I am thinking of getting it since it has dropped in price.

That's like 30 pounds, and that is the best mouse ever, none of this logitech or microsoft crap (which are still good)

And, great thread title

I have found the logitech line fit your hand much more comfortably than anything else. I have tried many out, and the feel of the logitec line is just better than anything else.

i stay away from cordless for gaming (which i do a lot of). my mom has a cordless, it is horribly imprecise, even when i turn up the precision.
