Hope you don't find this question too sad.

I'm looking for a new PC mouse must be optical.
I wouldn't mind a cordless, but I'm a bit strapped for cash at the mo. So a corded one would fine.

I have just got in to gaming a bit and I have read that cordless are not as good for games, what do you all think?

Can you suggest some good mice (corded/cordless) and the sites to get them from.

The Computerworld website has an optical mouse for £9!!

I use a Vivanco optical (with funky red glowing scroll wheel) and will not be going back to the ball.

Hi Tim,
What is their website?

I use a Logitec optical mouse, it's very good. The reason some gamers find that cordless mice are not so good, is the (slight)lag between the movement of the mouse and the movement on screen, this only really matters when playing games.

Scan (click here) have the Logitech Pilot Mouse Optical at £14.04

Logitech here too..... It's USB optical & has a wheel.

It's a very comfortable mouse for extended periods of use. Oh & it's the same colour as my mouse mat, hehehe.... Well that's important right

I was bought an optical mouse, cordless for my birthday.
Made by A4 tech, from or e-buyer, and costs under £20.
Also, its rechargable, comes with USB charger, or works with a nokia phone charger, so no replacing batteries all the time!
