Default Mouse wars; Corded vs. Wireless

My mouse died recently, so I went over to Best Buy, and I could not find a quality mouse with a cord. So I got a Logitech wireless. I had hoped they worked out the bugs on these things, but they haven't. The precision was horrible. It either jumped around like crazy, or moved like an old man. I just could not find that sweet spot in the settings. It made my wrist hurt, and generally frustrated me for two days. And I won't even get into how crummy it was in games. So I returned it, and found one of the few high quality corded mouse left on the market. This one

As gamers, you all know how important the mouse is. I am not happy to see corded mouse going away. Perhaps I will buy 300 of them so I never run out.

I had a G500. I did not like it because it was heavy.

the only thing i hate about wireless mouses is that a lot of them in the market dont have a rechargable battery bulit in them which really sucks. i dont like to keep on using random batteries as a result.


and Apples mouses suck in terms of handling IMO,

I use an Apple Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad. Both very nice in their way, but not suitable for FPS games, so I also have a Logitech MX 1000 attached. That was (and in my case still is) a great mouse. Too bad they stopped making it.

If you're into PC gaming, definitely get a wired mouse.

I have an A4 Tech X-750BF http://www.a4tech.com/product.asp?cid=&scid=&id=335

I hate wires, on anything and playing my PS2 or any of the last gen consoles is a pain in the a.. after having wireless controllers for so long. But with a mouse, as long as it is a laset and not a ball one, I'm fine.
