Microsoft Intellimouse Optical
I may hate MS for their software and their business practices, but I love their hardware. This mouse is very responsive and doesn't "twitch" like many other optical mice that I've used.
For a mousepad, I use an Xtrac Hammer. The thing is huge, so I rarely have to reposition my mouse. It is also a very comfortable surface.
Logitech Cordless Trackman
I will never go back to a mouse. My hand falls naturally over the Trackman and I can move the cursor anywhere with the slightest flick of a finger. My arm and shoulder are completely relaxed. I never run out of space so there's no need for the move-lift-move maneuver. And I have a scroll wheel right alongside the ball. And the six programmable buttons reduce the number of times I need to go to the keyboard. You mousers don't know what you're missing.
Once you go track, you'll never go back.
Logitech and Dell
I use a Logitech Wireless on my Dell laptop, and I use the Dell mouse from the laptop on my homemade desktop system. Both are optical, and both have wheels, which are absolute musts, in my opinion.
Forget wireless ...
I use a Logitech MX510 wires optical mouse. I am about to upgrade to the MX 518 model that's also wire and has 1600 dpi. As for the pad ... the one that came with my Dell. Ok so it's low tech!
Re poll, I use a Dell optical mouse and like it very much. It works on almost any surface and is very smooth and a pleasure to work with
I use a Logitech T-BB14 Marble Mouse and I love it! No
more carpel tunnel problems, like I had with the regular mouse. Comes with a program CD which covers a wide range of programable options. Fine moves easier to make with the fingers instead of the whole arm.
I have damage in my right shoulder which makes a normal mouse very painful to use. I find a mouse with a trackball is much better because it stays in one place and no gross shoulder movements are needed. The best mouse of this type is no longer available, so my boss bought a microsoft trackball mouse for my use. The rolling scroll button in the microsoft mouse dose not work very well. I'm hoping other designs will be available in the future.
I use a Logitech MX510
It is very fast and great for gaming. It is corded which is a pain but worth the trouble.
I don't use a mouse pad with it.
I use a Logitech Trackman wheel, both at home and work, wouldn't go with out, the old mouse you have to move around suck. Takes a bit of getting use to but once you've done it, you don't want to go back. Normal mouse pad, but going to pick up a couple of gel pads for more comfort.
What mouse do I use
I use a Compaq wireless mouse. It's fine, but there's no way to shut it off, save removing the batteries. I replace batteries about every 2 weeks. What a pain. Why don't they have a switch to shut it off at night? The wireless keyboard shuts off when I turn my computer off each night, but not the mouse. Red light blinks constantly.
Hello my name is mongoose, I use the gyrations ultra G.T. mouse. it works on a mouse pad or you can hold it in your hand and use it in the air. You can be up to 30 ft. from your computer! It really helps out with carpal tunnel syndrome I'm not sure if this is how you pronounce it, but you get the idea. Thanks mongoose
Logitech Marble mouse
I've used several different types of mice and trackballs, but found that I like the 2 button Marble Mouse the best. It fits the hand nicely,you never have to move it all over to move your curser, and the way it fits the hand is very comfortable. You can move the curser by moving the 3 middle fingers side to side, and let the ball roll under them, and click with the thumb and ring fingers. The best Trackball/mouse I've found.
I use a MS wireless optical 2.0 and pad cheapest one I could get
I have LOGITECH Wireless mice on both my Desktop & Laptop. I am happy with them except for short battery life.
MS Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0
I use the Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer 2.0. The range is only about 10 feet, but the battery life on this thing is unbelievable! I have been using the original 2 AA batteries for over 13 months in this mouse, and it is still working! I don't use a pad; it works flawlessly right on the desktop.
I use a Logitech MX 518 and my sweet Jacksonville University pad
I use a Philip Starck optical mouse and no mouse pad,
Logitech Marble Mouse USB
It's not cordless, but it is optical.
I use the same mouse on my Mac and PC at home as well as my PC at work.
What mouse do you use
Logitech trackball. Started with one, never used a mouse. I found it much essier to use. No worry about space on the desk or pad. When I use my wife's or son's mouse, I find it harder to place the curser or pointer where I want it.Can't understand why so many people prefer a mouse.
Gamer Mouse Baby
I use a NYKO Air-Flo USB mouse which has a built in fan to keep you hand from sweating while playing games. It also has a rubber pad on top with vent holes and sure grip rubber grips on the sides for control and comfort. There are vents on the sides as well. It works great for any application and is much more comfortable than a regular mouse.
For a pad, I just use a cloth mat with rubber on the bottom. It works great for me.
hi with the gyration mouse you just hold in your hand, and if you get tired of that you can put it down anywhere you like no mouse pad needed. Haboo52
Best mouse ever!
MS Intellimouse optical
Great infrared mouse - cost about 30 around 3-4 years ago. Bought another last year for other PC - then down to 15. Has 2 extra buttons at side (useful for games and web. I really like it - no mousemat nec on some surfaces.
I use a Microsoft wireless optical mouse and wireless keyboard.
Old Gray Mouse
I use several mice, such as a Logitech "Connect" cordless, which is very responsive, however, it eats batteeries, so I use rechargeables.
I also use a Microsoft "ball-less" mouse, which is also very responsive and comfortable, however, one of my favorites is an old Honeywell strain gauge sensor mouse that works on just about any surface, and, of course, has no moving parts.
As for pads, I tend to like the dark, solid color pads, which seem to have better reflectivity. I do not like pads that slide around on my desktop, however.
I would NOT use a Bluetooth mouse for security reasons.
I had been using Microsoft's Ball Point mouse for the past 15 years or so (I loved it) until it finally fell apart. It's not made any longer so I went with Logitech's Trackman Wheel. No pad required. It's not as good as the Ball Point but it's 100% better than a desktop move around mouse. I'm still getting used to the Trackman; I have trouble with inadvertantly pressing the right button.
No Mice For Me!
I've always hated mice. I use a Cordless Logitech TrackMan Wheel. Even my kids perfer this over mice.
i use ms optical scroll mouse on a plain old rubber type pad
