Mice and Keyboards

22 posts in this topic

(I'm bored)

What type of computer mouse do you currently use and do you want to upgrade it...if so to what?

I currently have a Logitech Cordless Click! Plus mouse. It's a pretty nice mouse but I've noticed lately that it has to be closer to the wireless receiver in order to work well...probably age. I'm dying to get an MX Revolution though, it's a sexy mouse with awesome feel and precision...plus it'll match the rest of my Desktop...black and silver :3

On a side note, I dislike all of Microsuck's mice products...they feel cheaper than Logitech, both in terms of materials and most noticeably the wheel. It has no precision and feels rubbery and cheap.

As for keyboard, I have a Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard. Best Keyboard on the market IMHO (especially if you're gamer)

Hey those are pretty nice, especially the mouse. It looks very cool with the blue LEDs, and teh keyboard looks slick too, but the it's not as cool as the G15 :AH-HA_wink:

I can also dock my Ipod in the keyboard.

Neat...but what's the point? A USB cable works just as well (unless you mean it features a USB port for docking, which the G15 has 2 of them).

I highly recommend Razer products, they are top notch. I game a lot and their products come in handy.

Here is their website. See for yourself.

They are quite nice, but I'll never trade my keyboard, and I've got my heart set on the MX. What I love about the keyboard is...well a lot. It's the only keyboard I know of that has Macro keys (which is very handy for MMORPGS), as well as the display screen (which I use all of thee time). The backlighting is my favorite feature, because I can type at low light without guessing. Being able to disable the cursed Windows key is another handy plus. Aside from that, the keys have a very nice feel to them. Solid, yet quiet.

Nothin special. With my laptop I have a Logitech V270 Bluetooth mouse that I purchased because I thought my laptop had Bluetooth. I was wrong. I decided the best course of action was to get a Bluetooth dongle. But regardless, the mouse frequently loses connection, and the dongle subsequentially fails. That, and it drains batteries like a hungry hungry hippo.

With the desktop, I have a basic wireless keyboard and mouse combo.

If I had infinite resources, I'd go for one of these. Anyone got $1500 and have nothing better to spend it on?

The keyboard is great. The best laptop keyboard I've ever used.

I have mixed feelings about the mouse. The scroll ball gets dirty very easily and stops working. It's a pain to clean it to get it working again, too.

I just picked the Logitech MX and must say I could never go back to a two button mouse again. It's great for everything from AutoCAD to general web browsing.

If I remember correctly, the Commodore 64 was named for its RAM capacity: 64 KB.

Compare that to the 1,000,000 KB RAM standard in most PCs today.

My last wired mouse was the original Microsoft Optical mouse. The wheel on that was of the same caliber as the wheels on both of my current wireless mice. It wasn't until more recently that they decided to change the feel of the wheel, and I agree with you.

I'm kinda worried about buying a new mouse without first trying it out for that very reason, because I think Logitech has similar wheels on some of their mice.
