Need new mouse - suggestions wanted

Postby KnightRid » Mon Nov 20, 2017 4:48 am

Ok, so my Devastator mouse wheel started squeaking again - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=46236&p=225480 - and I am not going to bother with an RMA. I am looking for thoughts on a good mouse that is not $20,000 lol I do not do a lot of gaming on the computer any more (ps4/ps3 for that) and just want something that will work smoothly and comfortably.

Thinking around $30-$50. Any ideas? I might buy the keyboard to match also but just depends on the price.

This is my daily driver. MK520 combo
https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... -_-Product
I have pretty big hands and yes my hand does cover the mouse but it's comfortable for me!
My only complaint would be the mouse is a little on the light side.
I've had 4 or 5 different combo's over the years and this is my favorite!
3 computers in the house and 2 have this setup!

Cheap too! I hate the separate 2.4ghz fob though. I lose the internet if we run our microwave (yea, buy a new one it was I say too but the wife says "there is nothing wrong with it")

Might give it a shot....have to think about that 2.4ghz fob a bit though.....

Thanx! Any others with personal experience with a certain brand/model? I know I used to love my microsoft bluetooth keyboard and mouse but they all died :axe:

I'm not sure I get the issue with the Nano USB dongle(fob)?
I get that it uses up a USB port and that it is Wireless and some people dont care for any wireless lag(at all!)
But if you're not gaming its really pretty responsive!
Another tidbit of info, I have 2 systems in the same area(less than 6' apart) and I have 0 issues with interference!

Just my $.02 :)

I have a Panasonic Inverter microwave and it interferes with 2.4ghz signals, that is the problem. It cuts off my wireless interent if I use it and everything. Tried different channels on the router and nothing fixes it.

So I don't have a problem with the fob or the wireless, just the signal interference I get from my microwave would make it unusable if we are nuking anything :)

The best gaming mouse I've ever used and great for everything else! Get it and you will not be disappointed. I did extensive research before getting it and did compare it to many other good ones.

I was actually looking at the g402 and g502 on best buy cause they were on sale for $20 and $30 respectively but now they are out of stock cause I waited.

Might snag that one and be done with it.
