Mouse Recommendations

Anonymous

Hey all. looking for some recommendations on a new mouse.
iv had 3 high end Logitech ones back to back and they dont really last, so its time to change brands. so looking for recommendations for anything but logitech.

wireless with long life rechargeable would be ideal.
ones that take new batteries each time im not interested in.

Cheers
Gene

I really like my VicTsing PC140A. I didn't buy it myself and I don't think I ever would, but it pleasently surprised me when I started using it. Maybe give it a shot.

By lasting you mean battery life?

I have had wired logitech mice for as long as I remember and they all last for years and years before anything breaks. The last one I replaced because the little 'feet' started to peel off after 10 years of daily use.

hey, lasting as in my thumb wears a hole through surface of the mouse. has happened on every logitech iv owned.

Guess I have gentle thumbs

Currently have a M500 at work, I can see some discolouration where my thumb rests and the logo is starting to wear off, but it still works fine and is comfortable to use and at €30-€35 can't really complain about value for money there.

Got a gaming model at home that is probably discontinued by now, but again no problems.

Wow. I am kind of curious to how that looks. The worst I have had is the left click started to play up, but that was after 5 years of heavy usage. In regards to the thumb, I have only had the texture wear off as that is rubberised over a hard plastic.

How do you hold your mouse? Claw? Have you thought of looking into getting a mouse designed specifically for your hold style?

I use a wired mouse because wireless can sometimes drop signal and muck it all up lol.
Also my Corsair has a few programmable buttons. The main one I use is to switch the last two modes, so I can move from pointer to line (eg) with a thumb click.

I Have been using the Logitech G602 gaming mouse with 8 programable buttons for the past year and a half and it was just 39.99$
- as of late sometimes I have to press on the wheel really hard in order to pan so I might be looking into something else. It’s a great mouse, batteries last for ever, really comfortable and I have two sets of programable profiles that can be swapped with a keyboard shortcut. I have one profile for modeling that includes things like f2, f3, f6, reserve, poly line, escape enter and option, and another for layout that has things like moving to the next or previous layout, drag, distribute , etc...

I love that it has two main buttons next to your left click button and 6 on the side so you can divide up by priority.

Progaming buttons is really easy and you can even set up automatic app detection, so If you use other shortcut based programs besides archicad It automatically changes when you have an active window open.

- 9/10 I would buy it again if it turns out the wheel is messed up, 39.99 for one year and a half is totally worth it in my opinion, It also could be that I was running a couple of instances of archicad and my computer has a slow response and has nothing to do with the mouse.

I’m looking into this one: Corsair Gaming SCIMITAR PRO RGB Gaming Mouse with 10 programable buttons, If I end up getting it Ill edit this post with my findings. But if it turns out the programable features aren’t as good as the Logitec, I’m rebuying the same one.

Sometimes on WIN10 at work my middle button 'bugs' out. Feels like hardware failure, but a system reboot fixes it everytime. I think SetPoint (or what's the name) from Logitech is somehow causing this.

Might be worth an investigation before you get rid of an otherwise functional mouse

One thing I find annoying with Logitech's non-gaming mice is the limitations in customisation with SetPoint. I swapped out a MX Master S2 for another G502 when I found the lack of options... Wish you could use LGS for their non-gaming mice...

late reply better than no reply

I hold it normally as far as i know?

Been looking at mice on and off for ages now and finally just bought another the same as i like them so much over anything else i have used/seen. (3rd or 4th one now, all have worn through in the same spot over about 3-4 year period.
Note the pad is about 5mm thick that its worth through and its even wearing through the concealed button below, as well as the hard plastic below the thumb scroll wheel (which i dont use)

Wow. Would not have expected that from a palm grip. Guess it would be due to the gesture button not really having any structure beneath it so there is unforeseen pressure on the curved section when you press straight down on the curve rather than pressing the outer edge. Though you say every Logitech you have owned, which other than the MX Master series, still surprises me. I have used their G500 and G502 series for many year of heavy use with no issue.

Have you tried the newer MX Master 3? Slight redesign which removed the flappy gesture button surface and a shift of MB4 and MB5 to be more ergonomic.

Thing is i dont use any of the buttons or scroll etc where the thumb is. so my thumb is pretty much stationary the whole time. Iv only had this issue on this model as iv only use the same one each time. (i like its size and shape etc..)
I didnt know about the s3,. i just looked it up and probably should have got that. too late now.
