Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: I need a new mouse, tell me what to buy

  1. #1

    I need a new mouse, tell me what to buy

    My mouse broke, and i need a new one. The braking part was an accident.

    I have about 90$ to spend, and i don't want any fancy stuff with lots of lights or midreading-functions.

    It will be for design purposes, so should I get a wireless and/or optical? Any recommendations?

    I use an Intellimouse Exporer Optical. It's not wireless, but I've been using some variety of the Intellimouse for as long as I know, and they've never given me problems.

    Hm... I couldn't find any Norwegian eshops with this product. It seems to have scored pretty well in tests tho...

    Do you know if a mouse with a wire performs better than a wireless?

    The battery life is just awesome and it only uses 1 AA battery.

    I have a wireless combo at home MS as well and the battery life is exceptional as well so I highly recommend this.

    I've used one of these for about 3.5 years. It's very simple. I don't like to have 80 buttons on my mouse...two + scrollwheel is plenty for me. I don't like cordless mice because you have to replace batteries plus I'm usually sitting directly in front of my comupter anyway. The best part is the price. I you break it/spill something on it, you can just go out and buy a new one!

    Thanks!

    Ok, so the "Microsoft Wireless Notebook Optic Mouse" is very cheap (in Norway). It looks good, and the reviews are good. But I kid of want a mouse that is 'intended' for graphic design. Maybe one from razer, a mouse for gamer ought to do the job.

    Thanks all, and let me know if anybody comes over a mouse for graphic designers

    No these are cheap! We used to sell these with computers at the place I work at in the summer. I think we payed like $4/mouse! Surprisingly, they actually weren't that bad. By the way, it is an optical mouse.

    Logitech Optical Wirless! 10 Feet Reception! USB!

    I really thought ball mouses and cord mouses went down with 56 k modems!
