    Such is my experience. I suppose it is possible that I simply had very bad luck with either the models purchased or the particular units received... anyway, for the record, here's how each one of them ended up failing.
    • Intellipoint Explorer: cursor movement randomly slowed down and became uncontrollable via software; the only solution was to unplug and reconnect the mouse. I had it plugged in the frontal USB ports for a while, then got tired of doing this.
    • The fuchsia Razer: its scrollwheel simply cracked and broke loose while I scrolled through an e-book. This was tolerable, but some months later, the left button started working erratically to the point of unusability. I'm fairly sure I gave this one to a friend who said he could disassemble and fix it (and then never heard about it again).
    • Habu: regularly double-clicked when only a single click had been issued. Dragging and dropping was almost impossible.
    • Logitech MX1000: regularly experienced jerky cursor movement, and sometimes it moved on its own.

    You likely remember their old logo where the G was stylized as an actual mouse, and their competitor A4Tech.

    This reminds me, my laptop's mousepad is also totaled, but I haven't been able to find a suitable replacement. It is a piece of cloth on top of a rubber surface, but everything available on the market is either the rubber alone, plastic, or has those wrist rests.

    While I would get an office mouse, I cannot because:
    • they are not big enough. i have big hands
    • I need a minimum of 1200dpi speed. i will never play but have 3 monitors and this is a must.


    Thus, I'm stuck with gaming mice. Sometimes i work 10-12 hours straight on the computer. my mouse has to be very very comfortable.

    I just wanted to say that a few weeks ago, I finally replaced the piece of crap mouse I was using with a Logitech M90. It does everything it's supposed to do, is comfortable to use for for hours on end, and claims a movement resolution of 1000 DPI. The price is also very low... well, I looted them from a company which closed some of its offices But their homepage says 10 euro.

    Yes, that's a good budget mouse. There is the B/M100 and B/M90. AFAIK the 90 models are somewhat smaller than the 100s.
    And the difference between B and M is that B is the line for business, and M multimedia/home use, thus making the M more durable, but also more expensive.
    I did the research on these mice two years ago.

    Both of them are long-lasting. I had one last 6 years before it got double click.

    Very good information, thanks. I only managed to grab two of them, but I'll stockpile more if the opportunity ever presents itself.

    Could you rename this thread to Mouse Discussions or whatever you'd find appropriate? To make it general discussions for computer mice. And make it sticky.

    In 2020 I bought the Logitech M330 Silent Plus. It is a silent wireless mouse. One the few truly silent mice out-there. Perfect for the office, or anywhere that requires silence. The battery lasts about 9 months, give or take, with usage of about 10 hrs a day.
    As far as durability goes, the first one I got lasted about 1 year before experiencing double-click randomly.

    I bought it for work because I click more than anyone else and it sort-of annoyed my colleagues.

    My contacts in the cat mafia wouldn't appreciate that, nya. Anyway, I'm still using the Logitech M90 (two of them actually) on a daily basis. Solid as a rock so far; unfortunately I couldn't manage to loot any spares.

    Glad your wireless experience is positive, because mine has never been: jerky movement, or batteries that last nothing, or sleep mode kicking in too aggressively and leading to input lag. A shame, as a working Bluetooth mouse would free up one of only two USB ports I have available.

    I moved from desktop to laptop a few years back and since then i was kind of forced to use wireless mice. The cable alone was enough to drive you insane, always got tangled, and then when untangled it did not stay straight and the cable broke fairly easily. Since it was packed/unpacked a lot, bent and such. Besides, I chose this particular one because it was silent. I do not know any wired silent mice.

    I solved this by bundling excess cable with a metallic twist tie (the kind used in bread bags). Same with the AC charger. Of course no wires at all is always comfier and that's another thing I liked about that Bluetooth mouse, just switch off and throw the thing in your backpack when you're done.
