New Wireles Mouse (for Vista)

  skidzy 18:08 29 Jul 2007

Hello again everyone.

Ok,quick one this i hope.

My Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 is causing a few issues with its right click.Now this has served me fine and owes me nothing.

Im in the market for a new wireless mouse thats is good on batteries as is the 5000.
Im looking for any recommendations with a budget of around £25.00 No gaming intended.

Im a believer in Microsoft mice but am open to a change.

What would you recommend ?

As usual,all advice and replies greatly appreciated.

click here I have been using this mouse for about 6 months, the batteries lasted 5 months. No problems and I like the feel.

Saves continually putting new batteries in. :-)

Thankyou for the suggestion,however with past experience with usb cradle charging mice i think il give that a miss.Thankyou for the suggestion,it is appreciated.

I use the Logitech V400 Dual Laser Cordless Mouse. It has a USB Micro-Receiver. Five buttons and Tilt/Scroll/Zoom Wheel.

Although it is for Notebooks, I use it full-time on my desktop pc. It is excellent IMHO.

In place of the orange stripe, mine is two-tone Grey.

Sorry for the late reply Techno,just finished building a pc and now installing the windows so i am back and forth.

Cheers Techno,thats something else to consider,looks like the Logitech has improved since my last encounter and thats best forgotten :-)

I too am using a Logitech Laser mouse as part of the LX701 kit with wireless keyboard as well , it's excellent and I've only changed the batteries once since late January !
