Is the Microsoft Wireless Explorer a good buy or can someone recommended one
I use a Logitech 700 MXcordles optical mouse, which I find is fast, precise and mmmmmm fits soooo lovely in the hand.
i use mx700 too,very acurate and handy with the recharge docking holder,you can get the mouse and wireless keyboard for around 90 squids
I'll third that, the MX700 is a great bit of kit. I seem to remember browsing a game forum a while back elsewhere and someone was asking the same question and stacks of guys recommended this one. A few of them were Counter strike pro's, so I thought if it's good enough for them it's good enough for me
I use it for counter strike(not a pro though ) and Day of defeat(great game) and it really is the dogs danglies
thanx 4 the help, I've ordered one from Amazon
I'm also in the market for a wireless optical mouse and was looking at either the MS 'bluetooth' mouse or MX700. My question is, I heard the 'higher-end' opt/wls mice run at the same frequencies as wireless networks and can conflict with users (like myself) who have a WAN. Does anyone have one of these mice and a 54g network to confirm whether or not this is true???
mx-700 for me too - the best mouse I've ever owned
another vote for it here
no problems if you get the most up to date drivers
Fast, acurate and no cable to worry about
just a note:
The MX700 is a good mouse and capable for most games unlike many wireless mice.
Its got a faster data tranfere rate then normal wireless ( i think double the rate ) so its far more responsive.
a wireless intel explorer ..... for genral desktop work
a logitec mx700 ..... for genral use and some gameing
a logitec dual optical corded ...... for competetion CS matches
basically, you should be absoultely fine using an MX700 cordless for gaming..... unless you are planning to play at the top levels, which my require you to be more careful of your selections for response times where fractions of a second mean a match win or loss.
I have also found that using a ps2 mouse ( or a ps2 adapter on a usb mouse plug ) gives me a more stable and responsive setup for those critical moments, rather than rely on a usb connection that sometimes is not quite as reponsive as needed or once in a blue moon needs reconnecting ........ which if happened during a match does not make for happy comments over the mic
Yes, good advice, I always convert my usb mice to ps2
A good question and good answers. How about a sticky?
Just one final question before I order one - Ive read a few of the reviews on amazon and some say this mouse behaves differently in some games - making the middle scroll wheel usless - anyone care to comment ?
I have no problems with mine - but I've not loaded any drivers for it. Windows XP detects it and I leave it at that. I've had problems with Logitech mouse drivers in the past so have decided not to use them.
I have a trust 350sx cradle charging wireless mouse, its pretty good, although every now and then it pauses for a split second which pisses me off.
anyone know how good the new M$ BT mouse is ?
IIRC I had an issue with the button config in a game recently (can't remember which one ). Got it sorted though.
Another for the Logitech Cordless MX from me.
