    The mac came with a Magic Mouse 2 but couldn't get on with it so using a cheap Jelly Comb silent bluetooth mouse. Does the job just fine

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Mainly Logitech wireless, but MS Arc mouse on the Surface Pro.

    Ratings?

    Logitech? Very good. Have used mainly Logitech since their first optical mouse mmmmph years ago.

    MS Arc? Not bad at all. I've always quite like MS mice. The Arc, though, is pretty decent but at a hell of a premium price. The on/off mechanism is very clever, but I feel I paid a hefty premium for that, and the styling, at the expense of function. It fiys the sleek 'premium' Surface Pro ethos but, at a price.
    A lesson learned from PeterB about dignity in adversity, so Peter, In Memorium, "Onwards and Upwards".

    I've been using a Logitech G403 (wired) for the last few years, great mouse!

    Standard Logitech - two button mouse with a wheel.

    Its on a USB-cable - so I don't have to fiddle with batteries - and it doesn't get lost.

    An Evoluent vertical mouse (wired). Because my right wrist is knackered, due to cycling accidents many years ago.

    Logitech M570 trackball. I was getting RSI with a standard mouse and this cured it a few years ago. With the limited space I have on my desk (through choice, I'd just clutter a larger desk), it works for me.

    SteelSeries Sensei but since they updated their software to the bloated GG I'd never buy one again, i don't want 250Mb worth of instal, attempts to get me to sign-up to an account, capture software, or a store in a program just to configure a blooming mouse.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    I have 2 mice permanentley connected depending on what im doing.

    Glorious model D, Really good lightweight mouse for online fps and such.

    Razer Basilisk (copy of logitech G502) Okish still quite light for a mouse with 11 buttons, for all offline slower paced games.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    I'm still using a Logitech MX518 (original) on my desktop while my laptop sports my old MX510 when I need to use a mouse on it. I don't care for wireless mice, batteries/recharging? and possible lag (albeit under some very specific circumstances) no thanks.

    And your rating?


    Home - Logitech G700S
    I meant to buy the G700 that PCWorld had on sale, but picked up the wrong box and ended up with this. It's become my absolute favourite mouse so far. I love all the extra buttons, and how I can just go wireless by unplugging the charging cable (which can use any standard micro USB, if you happen to lose it or need an extra one). Lights are minimal and kept to just red indicators for the five profiles, and green for the battery level.
    It has a scroll wheel clutch too, which makes whizzing up and down long websites or scanning through documents a breeze.

    Score - 8/10
    Needs more buttons, and I'm not a massive fan of the thumb indent on the side, as I have wide hands that need filling. I also put some Sugru on the off-side to support the third finger.


    Work - Roccat Kova +
    Another where I picked up the wrong box, again at the same shop. I meant to grab the much taller Kone, but this one is surprisingly comfortable despite being very low profile.
    It programs the mouse directly, so if you only need one setup, you can ditch the config software with the macho voice that announces your profile changes. It does have lights, but they're optional. The rubber coating does get a bit sticky after several years, but we are talking about 8-9 years of 8hrs daily use.

    Score - 6/10
    Ambidextrous, but the off-side buttons (for either hand) are easily triggered, which is annoying.


    Working From Home - Coolermaster Storm Inferno
    They don't make this one any more, which is a shame as it was cheap but still very good. Nice and wide, very hand-filling, several extra buttons, programmable, optional LED lights and patterns. Nice wide scroll wheel.

    Score - 7/10
    More buttons, as always. Software is a bit naff. No RGB as such, but does have multiple colours.

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Corsair M65 pro, works well for my needs, I use the sniper button to decrease DPI which is good for fine adjustments (photo/video editing).

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    Just switched from an old Gigabyte M6980x to an Oversteel Magnox which I found on Amazon for under 30 euros and I must say it's amazing. Overkill 16000 dpi, fully customizable buttons and understated RGB lighting which you can actually turn off. Though a little small for my big hands it is by far the best mouse I ever had and a bargain as well. So if you're on hunt for a budget mouse with great specs I highly recommend it. (Disclaimer: I'm not paid to advertise but I like good stuff that is cheap )

    Re: QOTW: Which mouse do you use?

    MX Master, not sure I'd pick it again though. The scroll wheel 'autoswitch' mechanism is prone to breaking (I didn't like the click so disabled that and just went smooth anyway) and the battery life is shockingly bad (happened shortly after warranty) and now basically lives on the charging cable. Everything else is still working so holding off for as long as possible.

    Probably going back to MS mice because they've all lasted longer than the logitech one did.

    Also have wacom tablets for graphics work and a 3D Connexion device for 3D which is sometimes listed under mice (it's not really a mouse)
