    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    SteelSeries Kana v2. I mouse left handed at home (and right handed at work!), so I needed a good, solid mouse that could still be mousebidextrous. It's a wonderful, wonderful mouse in that it's solid, quite sensitive on the top setting and doesn't have any useless cruft on it or need special drivers.

    G703 wireless for the fun stuff, and an old Performance MX for work.

    Never going back to wired, too much of a hassle.

    Use two different mice, Logitech MX Ergo & Logitech G305.

    Desoldered the G305 switches to be silent and plan to do the same with the MX Ergo soon™

    Logitech M325. A nice basic wireless mouse. Good battery life and they take a beating; if I drop my mouse on the floor I don't have to worry that it won't work after I pick it up (possibly after reseating the battery).

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Glorious Model O. It's basically a Finalmouse without the ridiculous marketing department and intentionally-designed scarcity. Cheap but works well when it works. Longevity isn't the greatest but it's better than Razer of course.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    I'd like to post a comment I got a Roccat Kone XTD mouse and after a year it became a grubby mess. The reason - the bloomin awful rubber coating(1) on the mouse. I was pretty miffed as surely this is the kind of thing that should have been spotted before choosing the coating. I did ring a support line but was told as it was out of warranty they wouldnt replace it. It was something like seventy quid so I was most agggrieved.
    (1) It feels very silky to touch, almost like fabric in case you want to avoid similar. In my case it broke down into the shiny plastic surface of the mouse but sporadically, so the mouse ended up mottled and (oddly) the rubber coating isnt that easy to remove so I couldn't remove it all.

    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.
    Will second that. Got an MX vertical for my other half a few years ago and she loves it. Pretty much instantly sorted some comfort/posture issues she was having.

    @Smudger, how would you rate the two MX Masters? I know about the different click mechanism in the 3, and the redesign of the horizontal scroll/fwd/back section - but in what other ways is it different/better/worse?

    You've properly stoked my proverbial there, I hate that type of (silicone-based?) soft touch coating with a passion. I've lost count of the number of products of all sorts where it has degraded into a scratched up, patchy, icky mess. And on some really expensive kit too. It's not even a reaction to skin oils/use either - I got a barely used (but very old) Logitech steering wheel out of the cupboard a few years ago to find the soft touch panels had almost literally melted off in the box. MS Intellimouse Explorer scroll wheel outer mouldings used to do it too.

    That said, the coating on my MX Master has, so far at least, lasted very well. Touch, umm, some fake wood.

    They're both good. I absolutely loved the 2 when I got it, and only got the 3 cos I kept forgetting to take my mouse into work on office days, and had some vouchers to use. The 3 is just a tiny bit more ergonomic and a tiny bit better built. If I didn't have the two to compare, I wouldn't know any different. They're both great, but the 3 is just that bit greater.

    An old MS Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1A on my desktop and an Equatech Wireless Mouse from Home Bargains on my laptop (replaced a Rapoo M500 which was rubbish - kept losing connection). Not exactly cutting edge!

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Razer Naga Pro (Rating: Has all the functions I need! so 10/10). Before that was using the Logitech G502, which is what I use for work now. I love the button that free the scroll wheel lock, good for scrolling quickly through emails. I accidently click that on the Naga sometimes, but all that does is change the DPI!

    I had the Corsair M95 years back, and liked it, but the scroll wheel stopped working... then ended up using a basic mouse till the G502.
