Greetings all,

I voted 'other'. I have used both ms and logitech 'tailed' mice over the years, currently there's a dirty ms mouse on the desk <g>. Old beasties with ps/2 adapters on the other end of the tail <bg>. However, I have an old gateway keyboard (the one with the function key down the side and across the top *and* the asterick down by the space bar where it belongs <g>). I wouldn't give it up for the world, and may order another for a spare lest gw decides to stop selling them. Compared to the other manufacturer's keyboards this one is by far the best for all day typing, whether code or notes, or whatever. fwiw.

Be well,

Tim

Well I voted for Logitech. I recently picked up the Cordless/Optical Keyboard and Mouse combination. Man is it sweet. My only quam about it is that I have to get used to the placement of the second and third mouse button, because I am used to using crappy 2 and 3 button mice

i'll have to go with other because the best damn mouse i've ever had was one made by some bobo's company called micro innovations. its not wireless, it still has a ball, but boy howdy is it comfortable. it has all three buttons in the perfect spot, and it even has two wheels. if i could buy another one i would. its the kind of mouse you buy at office max for three dollars. but its wonderful. sadly they dont make it anymore, if i knew they were gonna stop makin em i would have bought ten more to last the rest of my life...

Hardware is about the only that Microsoft knows how to make right. I've only seen 1 dead microsoft mouse in my life. And I've lost count of the logitech. (please note that I have a Logitech cordless Freedom Pro at home. lol But my trusty MS Optical mouse is still plugged in.)

Ok, I want to change half of my vote. I still love the Logitech i-touch keyboards for their usability and price too. I might have to agree that the MS optical mouse is superior after buying one. It does not jump around like my Logitech and it just feels better in your hand.

Other thing about MS Mice is that the scroll always works and that you don't need an extra driver for it to be compatible with games.

Logitech has more selection, but if you are talking about cordless, then MS is better because the mouse puts off a stronger signal and makes it go a little faster. Personally, I hate cordless and I would go with MS for their optical mouse.
Hold that thought.

you know that jumping around problem. i read somewhere a looooong time ago abut how it wasnt partly the mouses fault but the frequency or hertz or whatever it runs at.. if you get ps2rate program it will allow you to get a higher err i forgot the tech term and the mouse will look much faster and stop all that jumping around like as if you had a crappy old computer..

unless its a different problem altogether. just thought id just let yer know


anyways was it the ms that came up with the idea of optical mouses???

cos i think it was the ms that i first saw that had this.
I love it when you touch me there
