which mouse

Evening Lads. Quickie for you if you please. Boss says we are changing all the mice for some reason. He can get loads at right price. I have to see which one is best. I actually use and prefer the basic scroll mouse. I have a choice between wired optical mouse with no ball or Infra red wire free mouse with a ball. As I have never used either is one any better than t'other in terms of durability and error free working.

I prefer wired optical - no batteries to run out and less chance of it falling to the ground and getting trodden on [a sad £40 story there...].

Wait for others to contradict though - its really a matter of preference. And try to get to hold the mouse in your had before buying.
