Hi all :cya:

My mouse is kinda screwed. That's not an elaborate euphemism by the way. Although the thought of Margaret Thatcher 'stroking her mouse.' *shiver*

[SIZE="1"]Must wash brain.[/SIZE]

Anyway. I need a new one. Had a Death Adder, it only lasted about a year, now the left mouse button sends multiple clicks when you click it. Rather annoying when you try to close an office document and close your media player and web-browser at the same time. Local shops only seem to stock wireless mice, which are useless to me. Don't want something small on account of having relatively large mits.

I'm undecided on trackballs but it needs a scroll wheel of some description or I'll go nuts trying to grab the scroll bars.

Any recommendations?

That's a shame about your DeathAdder. Mine from 2007 still works...fantastic mouse overall.

How much dosh are you allotting for this purchase? Do you plan on using it for gaming?

Yeah, it's a nice mouse apart from that. Seems to be a fairly common issue. They've got a firmware update out that significantly decreases it and you can, supposedly, pop the mouse open and clean the clicky bit which - again supposedly - makes it even less likely. I'd imagine they've just got a fairly wide range of quality.

Not looking to spend much more than £50, maybe stretch to £65. I get a reasonable amount of gaming in - mostly mass effect, assassins creed, dragon age; that sorta thing. Can't remember the last time I played an FPS but there aren't many out these days anyway.

I'd like to jump in here and say that I'm looking for the same thing, because the exact same thing is now happening with my MX Revolution. =p

Was looking at the Performance MX, as it's very similar, just wondering what other good options are out there. Money isn't really an issue, and I'd like something with plenty of buttons, but nothing like the Naga(?), as that's just... pffft...
