Optical mouse

After a little hassle with my balled mouse i have decided to change it, i was wandering if anyone knew a good place to buy a decent mouse- internet or shops. Tried and tested ones if possible.

Probably a good idea to try out a few at say, PC World, to make sure they're comfortable in the hand as they vary in size, number of buttons etc and then check online for best prices, eg Dabs, Ebuyer etc (do a search on Google).

I just got a MS Intellimouse Optical from e-bay for £15, it's OEM so you have to download the software from MS but it's far better than the ball versions.

MS Intellimouse Optical bought from PC World abou 2 years ago. Never had any problems & set up a doddle.

Don't miss the ball & having to clean t regularly!

Argo's are doing Logitech MX500 for £29.79 at the moment,as far as i know they are really good,unless you are left handed as they are moulded for right handers, i think i might invest in one myself

Just purchased MS Wireless keyboard and mouse from Evesham,this is OEM so you have to download software from Microsoft but I think this is excellent value at £34.08 incl;P&P
