Computer Mouses

Yay my first blog is gonna be about computer mouses :P

Now every day we use mouses for our computers right? (OBVIOUSLY). Nowadays many mouses are offered for many uses such as for the office, for gaming etc. They come in wired or wireless and with extra buttons for increasing the mouse sensitivity to going back a page or forward a page on a website. Also another factor is the ergonomics involved in the mouse, whether it’s comfortable or not, if it sits nicely on your hand or feels like you’re holding something really irregular.

There are some basic ones, like the one made by Microsoft that is all black. These basic mouses are great for offices because they are cheap, affordable and they work that cost around $10.

 Now then on the other side there are those hardcore gaming mouses that can range from $50-$150. Razer is a company that sells many gaming keyboards and mouses, I found one of their highest priced mouse at $129.99 with the specs such as 6400dpi 4G dual sensor system.  I find gaming mouses do have some sort of impact towards your gaming experience but I don’t find it necessary to buy a gaming mouse for $130. I mean if you have the money laying around go for it but if you don’t a mouse around $50 could serve you well in your gaming journey.

The mouse I am using right now is Logitech MX518. I bought it 3 years ago when my friend recommended me a mouse because I was using a cheap Microsoft mouse :S. It was pretty cheap as well as I got it for $37. It has a nice ergonomic design and has an adjustable sensitivity button. I could easily see a improvement in my gaming after a few days of using a gaming mouse because it was so much smoother, oh and the game I was playing was Counter-Strike (Oh the memories)

Anyway If you game I DEFINITELY recommend you to get a gaming mouse if you don’t.
And what mouse are you using right now?

  2. Oh nice you have my old mouse! That MX518 is actually pretty good, but eventually my dog chewed the cord one day(ugh) and I picked up a Razer Lachesis which is pretty nice. I agree though, gaming mouses are great, and I recommend them even if you don't game, I find them more comfortable.

  3. I'm not actually using a gaming mouse, and I don't think I ever have - I've never even bothered to get something without a cord.

    Getting one certainly seems like a good idea, what with the unreliability rate on this mouse getting me screwed over more often then not.

  4. I'm using the old version of the Razer Lachesis, the one with only 4k DPI, but I have loved it ever since I got it. And yes, good ol' Counter Strike Source:D This mouse took my skills so much higher than the piece of shit Microsoft wireless thing I had...

  8. I worked at a computer storage for a few years. They would buy old pc's and sell tell to foreign countries. They didn't sole the mouses, so they ended up in the garbage. Really more than 50 a day. So now and then there even were bluetooth ones, and I'd take them home. I had a nice collection but I gave a lot away for free!

  14. Microsoft mice used to be awesome, but they are becoming crappier and crappier with each product line. Logitech mice are still the best.
