    The original MS Optical (X802382) was the best mouse ever:

    Sadly had to move on after 20 or so years, but I've been enjoying the Steelseries Sensei [RAW]:

    I like the cloth cord and rubberised shell (less hand salsa). It would be perfect if they got rid of all the side buttons and silly lights.

    2x MX Master 1
    1x MX Master 3

    They work exceptionally well on any surface.
    One of the MX Masters double clicks instead of single clicks sometimes and will be replaced (right now it's sitting with my workstation 10,000 miles away so no point changing it yet).

    The scrollwheels are all choppy and often continue scrolling after stopped, so yeah, they're all working as good as new.

    I tried to clean mine out, and it went from too many lmb clicks when I clicked once, to now not registering every lmb click. I had a quick look, but couldn’t find an obvious way to open them up - the button did pry upwards enough to attempt some form of maintenance however.

    i don't mind it (great basic office mouse, incredibly reliable) but like the back button and shape of the intellimouse.

    I've used many different mice over the years, Microsoft, Logitech, A4tech, and many other brands, with various technologies.
    These days (past 10 years or so!) I use the Apple magic mouse - the main reasons I can't move past it is the scroll - having no physical scroll wheel means much better control, a physical scroll wheel just can't compete, and I do a lot of scrolling each day, so until I can find a mouse that does as well or better, that's it. For gaming, I have an original Microsoft Sidewinder gaming mouse from 2007 (old!), but I don't game much these days...

    really? i tend to switch between scroll and button press drag (or flick in my case) and the MM is a little slow to do things like this. To be fair a LOT of mice have bad scroll wheels.

    Personal preference of course, but no way I could do no scroll wheel.

    What is button press drag? Maybe I can learn something new :)

    It did take me a while, but now that I'm used to it, I just find the mouse wheel frustrating

    Ah right - yeah that can be faster than using the physical wheel.

    what a thread revival.

    Switching between Corsair M65 RGB (not my favourite) a newly purchased Logitech G304 (way better) and about to swap the Corsair out for a Nixeus I got off here because it's a cool shape!

    I miiiiiight also do my work on an MX Master 2S,have an anywhere 2S sitting around because I used to take it into the office and a Razer DeathAdder Essential on the way from Prime Day ($30 delivered, what was I meant to do, not buy it)?





    I think I have a Abyssus Elite sitting on a shelf somewhere too. Weighs as much as air.

    heh, just saw my first post back in 2011 I had an MS Habu. which i really liked moved onto a Razer Mamba 2012 Elite. I like that it's wired or wireless depending on how you feel.

    2007 reprazent.

    Had to replace the cable and resolder the wheel sensors but still going ok.

    I've looked, but all the new ones are kinda fugly or insanely expensive. 200 for a mouse? Wtf!

    Tbf it's the same with keyboards. N key roll-over costs a fortune now but shitty $2 ps2 keyboards used to do it fine.

    I think you are only saying that as its most peoples upgrade from physical mouse ball mice *shudder* I still have one here and its not nearly as nice as almost all current non-cheap ass mice.

    That said, it still works and works well. Ive been through a bunch of mice and cant find anything better than the ms sidewinder i had that has a sticky wheel and i cant use it (known issue with these mice). I atm use a corsair rgb mouse (glaive and ironclaw depending on the pc)

    Even my shitty $5 Dell mice at work have a scroll wheel. One thing they don't have though which I miss is back/forward buttons.
