I was very much opposed to wireless until I tried the one I use. After signalling low battery with red light it still holds for 2 weeks.

i should note that that wireless quote john mentioned was from about 6 years ago when wireless mice were all terrible; it's possible they've improved since. i last tried a wireless mouse about 6 years ago and it kept losing connection about once an hour or so, which is pretty bad when playing mp games like starcraft; i just threw it away after about a few weeks of trying to live with it

I'm pretty satisfied but the blue light is annoying. One day I'll dismantle the whole thing and cut those damn LED's out. Otherwise a fine mouse.

I use that. My first one started registering double clicks when I'd single click so they replaced it. I'm not a fan of the blue lights either; I have to throw a shirt on top of it when I go to sleep. It's still the best mouse I've owned, though.

I like the concept of Apple's Magic Mouse but I think I'd die with no proper middle click or side buttons. I use one for activating OS X's mission control feature and another for minimizing windows.

there's a program you can download that lets you add middle mouse to the magic mouse; you put down two fingers on the mouse and then click to use it; not as great as an actual middle mouse button but it's usable

I bought a wireless mouse a couple of years ago after needing a new one and not being able to find a single wired mouse in the entire store. It worked pretty well, but would occasionally seem to get confused and update the cursor position very sporadically for a few seconds until it recovered. I just don't see the appeal of a wireless mouse, really... Way more things to go wrong, batteries to replace, and nothing to stop it from smashing to the floor if it slips off my desk.

Is a gaming mouse really worth the expense, or is it just a gimmick to get money from you? I don't know why an ordinary, 5 dollars discount mouse can't work for most things.

Well same goes for cars, houses, food, clothing and the rest.

Endless choices that are *mostly* cosmetic.

Well, yeah, but the difference between a great meal and an instant microwave meal might be larger than the difference between a gaming mouse and a cheap one.

A gaming mouse has more buttons. Do you think you will need more buttons? If so, a mouse with more buttons may be the right choice.

Yeah, some people like more buttons. Also, m Logitech gaming mouse is the most ergonomic mouse I have used. I think that if you have equipment you are going to use a lot in each day, picking the cheapest option isn't always the best way to go. That's why I'm usually rather picky with my keyboard/mouse.

It's worth it. I bought a gaming mouse mostly because I was getting into pixel art and I wanted to have a precise mouse that worked reliably.

I have the Razer mouse + mat. My previous setup was a wireless Logitech with some worn out mat. It's just better in ways I can't describe. Gentleman

A five dollar mouse will work, but you're going to get worse accuracy, response time, durability and build quality. I think 70 bucks or whatever they cost is worth dropping for a good, comfortable mouse that will last for years.

More expensive mouse will generally have better ergonomics (smaller chance of RSI etc.), higher resolution (800 DPI vs 800-3500DPI for example), higher quality materials and therefore better grip, more durability...
