Default My mouse died, I know my Perfect mouse is out there - MX700???

UPDATE: I think I will go for the MX700. I didn't know a cordless mouse could be suitible for games, but from what I've read this one apparently can cut the mustard.

Does anybody have an MX700 and how does it run in games and stuff like 3dsmax and photoshop?


I have a first generation Microsoft Explorer mouse, those big grey lumps of mass with a laser.

It it usb, and keeps 'disconnecting' for a few seconds before it makes that dun-DUN usb noise to say it's back from it's walk-a-bout.

So I know my perfect mouse it out there waiting for me to buy it, and I'm asking you all to help me find it! what is the best mouse?

EDIT: Good point dallasstar; well I think it should be a cord mouse, used for a bit of gaming, mostly FPS like battlefield, UT2003 and Half-Life 2 when Christmas 2010 comes, so it has to last a long time too! I guss I'm thinking Microsoft or Logitec, regular style, not one of those 'limited desk space' track balls, I can't decide between some of those new MS blue mice or those Logitec ones, also I've heard about a new mouse in development by MS called 'tilt mouse' where the scroll wheel tilts, but I need a mouse now, so stoof that idea.

Thank you all for the info you've given me, I didn't know what models were what for logitec

well, would you mind specifying what you would consider an "ideal mouse"? different people have different tastes. some like trackballs, others mice. most like optical. some people prefer to "feel" their clicking via logitech ifeel; many people think that's a stupid concept and just get regular mice etc. be specific. there's no single "best mouse"

All I can say is that I love my logitech MX500, it fits my hand perfectly, and I have big hands.

The Logitech Mx500 or the Mx700 mouse are really nice.
Both are the same except the 700 is cordless and have the rechargeable batteries.

Did you even try the Mx700 mouse ?
I have both ( 700 and the 500 ) and i find them equal in speed and reliabiality.

if you are looking for a mouse for gaming, there is nothing better out there at the moment than the Razor Boomslang2000, I have it for over 2 years now and would not use anything else, have tried the MX500 and it did not even compare, the speed and response of the boomsland is second to none, www.razerzone.com , check it out.

The boomslang is still around?!?! Hows about that. As for the boomslang being better than the MX500 in speed and response I call bullshat . Define "speed"....... does it mean how fast your mouse goes across the screen? because thats handled by the sensitivity settings in windows. Does it mean how fast you can move it without it screwing up? because I can move my MX500 way faster than I would ever need to and it tracks perfectly. Response (besides being entirely dependant on the interface to which your mouse is attached) is a moot point as I'm sure nobody could ever notice any lag between their hand movement and the mouse movement. The only place where the boomslang could hope to win is in precision with its fancy 2000 d.p.i.

Cordless is the way to go. Your hand won't hurt after using them, I use mine (logitech cordless mouseman optical) for hours on end and it's never given me any sort of problem.
