Question Wireless Mouse 4 Desktop?

Hi just wondering which wireless mouse would work best with a desktop PC? With the receiver in the back of the PC will the mouse work smoothly?

Simply don't know which one to go for, if going wireless?

Appreciate any help

Default Re: Wireless Mouse 4 Desktop?

it should be fine, I don't know the distance but some plug into usb port and have a 'dongle' thingy which you put near the mouse

personally I stick to wireless as I don't like having to put batteries in them but have used a few difference wireless ones and not had issues with range (though generally it's been only a couple of feet)

Question Re: Wireless Mouse 4 Desktop?

Hi what do you think of http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-Per...3973379&sr=8-1

Is Darkfield Laser Tracking as good as 'bluetrack' or better because it performs on glass too?


Thx

Your link isn't working. Was it this one?

Logitech make good mice, whether one that tracks on glass is better I couldn't say (do you need it to track on glass?).

I'm currently using a wireless trackball (this one - that's actually the older version, the newer one has the ball under your thumb and a smaller dongle, and is cheaper) mostly for use with my TV (which is connected to my computer as a second display) and it works great for general stuff. Not so good for games though (FPSes in particular) so I still have my trusty MX518 plugged in for occasional fragging duty.
