    Default Recommend me a mouse

    I want to get a fairly decent mouse. I'm not after a really fancy one with lots of buttons, I'd prefer one that's just got a left click, right click and mouse wheel without having 10 other buttons. I'd also prefer that it's cordless, AND not super expensive (under say $50) any ideas would be appreciated.

    I would highly recommend M720 Triathlon mouse. If you shop around you can find one for around $50 or less. I have one for a year already with heavy daily use still on the first set of batteries. Manual says batteries should last up to 3 years .

    I use a cheapie that I got from one of those "dollar shops", cost me about 10 bucks and I use it several hours a day. Have had it for quite a few years now and has never missed a beat. Takes 1 AA battery that lasts for at least a couple of months. (Current one has been going for nearly 3 months as I've been on the road for 2 of them and did not change it before I left.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Logitech M185/M325 -- they take a AA battery, have a good low-power mode when not being used, I get about 1 year out of a decent alkaline cell

    i use the logitech M585 combo because you can use it on a second-third computer with extra usb
    at the same time just with a button click the same as the M720 Triathlon mentioned above.

    I use the Anker Vertical Ergonomic, one wired and one wireless. Personally I love it, and would never go back. However, some do find it hard to adapt and even hate them.

    Am using a Logitech ? with all buttons and switches, starting to play up but have become so used to all the switches etc i could not go back to a simple mouse
    What amazes me is the cost of these items $75 +/_
    There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Madness"

    Ha ha.

    Yes, everybody uses a mouse and has found their favourites but my experience with Logitech has not been amongst them in the past.
    In the past I always said that Microsoft make a good mouse, the only product from them that I do favour.
    However both Microsoft and Logitech make their stuff in China.

    I currently have a bunch of mice(mouses) from Rapoo that perform very well. Some had their original battery last over a year and they get heavy use.
    I like that they have an on/off switch and have minimalist design.
    And yes they are also made in China.

    EDit: I should add why the on/of switch is important for me. I have computers that wake up from standby with mouse movement, so accidental mouse movement after sleep can be quite annoying but not if the switch is off.

    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.
