    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Logitech MX Master (the original one). Which replaced a much loved, weighted, tweaked, repainted and endlessly used MS Intellimouse Explorer Wireless.

    Love the Logitech - and the versatility of the extra buttons and Options. Obvious replacement would be either another one, or an MX Master 3 if and when the need comes, but as things stand, this one is still giving good battery life after four years of very heavy use, and hasn't suffered the problem with the wheel that was common enough to have YT videos showing how to fix.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    All my mice are Logitech wireless MX of various types. I cannot remember the model numbers as all will be over 6 or 7 years old. The PC's mouse is a full size Master I think. The laptops is a medium sized and the surface has a tiny mini mouse. Not that I use the mouse with the surface that often.
    I have had to buy a number of the Unifying recivers over the years which is a bit annoying.

    I'm very surprised to see that, of all those who have responded so far, I am the only one using a vertical mouse.

    If you have hand or wrist problems, leading to pain when using a mouse, a vertical is very well worth trying and, there are now many different options, not all expensive.

    Logitech MX518. Quite old now but still usable after removing the sticky rubberised finish with isopropyl alcohol.

    Trackballs are usually cheaper. And left-handed people can use them.

    I use a trackball - a Kensington Expert Mouse. Yes, despite the name, it's a trackball.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Currently using a Logitech G703. It's fine, and normally would get a 6/10 but it supports Logitech's Powerplay mousepad setup, which I've bought. So I'm using the mouse wirelessly and it charges inductively just by moving it across the mousepad, which raises the score to 8/10.

    I wish it had the features and extra buttons of the wired Roccat Kone XTD I bought years ago that I left behind in the UK (which I'd score 8/10) but the freedom of a wireless mouse that never needs charging is such a bonus I can't ignore the benefits of it.

    Same. Still working pretty well specially on Linux.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    The cheapest wireless one I could find that was a brand name. Currently, a Logitech M170,it was around £5 and the battery lasts for ages, it's comfortable and works on pretty much any surface! No complaints here!

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    I'm using the ADX M0620 which can be had for £30 from Currys and is almost identical to the Glorious Model O. I've no idea what sensor it uses, but I'm very happy with it, 12 months so far and going strong.

    Comparison between the two:

    While I do have wrist problems, they're more the twisty kind and the can't-keep-punching-people-in-the-face kind. I can still use a mouse without issue, hence no vertical mouse.
    My mother had one that was like a joystick on a rollerball base for her arthritis, though. Fine for browsing the web, but useless for gaming.

    Original Logitech G502 mice. I've heard current models aren't so good due to poor quality switches that miss clicks or simply break?
