You want this:

Or this:

I have the second one and it works perfectly. If you have the money, why not go for the first.

I am not a fan of logitech, but I think that 500 is a right handed mouse so if you are a lefty like myself beware.

I've had this for a couple months and it works for a while and then it keeps shorting out and pissing me off so i'll just goto bestbuy and get a mx510 i guess.

FUck a 510.. a 500.



is a 510 a Wireless? If you are gaming and use a wireless you are banned from these boards.


MX500 is the Greatest Mouse ever made.

I did own the Logictech cordless Plus (the piece of shit that suck juice out of 2 batteries in about a week) and upgraded to the Logictech MX700 (cordless with the charging base) The MX700 is amazing - I've never had a connection problem ever with that sucker. It's the ONLY cordless I would ever recommend.

I have the second one that newbold posted, the Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical 1.1

You really want that mouse, its soo light over any surface, you dont even need a mat, unless you want one, and the 5 buttons are perfectly placed

when I play ps this is what I have keymapped to my mouse

Medkits on the right side button
Shoot obviously
Zoom
Implant (usually darklight or surge)
map zoom on mousewheel
secondary fire

All those on just a tiny mouse.

Been useing the microsoft intel optical mouse for around 3 years now and love it, had to replace it once.

Corkorle

It still stops responding :X

Could it be a virus?

Edit: 0 Viruses 2 Spyware -- Spyware deleted, i doubt the spyware would be causing it tho, it was IBIS Toolbar (Data miner) and a tracker ...dunno wtf the ibis toolbar is tho :P

You have a Dell, call them and tell them to fix that shit. I'd say it's the mobo or your psu.

been trying to buy a fucking mx510 for 2 days now and it's sold out everywhere. the logitech site itself only lists bestbuy as an online retailer and they are backordered there. the fact that it is like impossible to get right now increases my desire tenfold. bah.

Corkorle

There were a couple of em in the best buy that i went to :P

Ya, I'm in the same spot as Ritual. I've been trying to get one too.

Best Buy was supposedly the early release partner for Logitech, and they're supposed to ship them out to all the retailers sometime this month I think. I'd personally rather have the blue one, but it's not even available at Best Buy yet. Only the red one is.

It happened yesterday again, but then when i left num lock off it didnt stop responding, gonna try to run PS form the start w/o numlock on and see if it works or not.

Corkorle
04-11-2004, 10:02 PM
Turning off num lock seems to solve the problem, could there be a problem with the keyboard?

Corkorle

No problem with the keyboard, maybe i should reformat since Dell isn't helping any.

Well I personally owned/own an Intelemouse Explorer (orriginal one) and I loved the feel of it, it fit my hand nicely, and was more comfortable than really any regular mouse i've ever seen since. It got a broken connection in the cord so I had to replace it.

I picked up a Microsoft Trackball Explorer and this thing fits your hand like a glove and all the buttons are where you'd expect them to be and it's perfect for planetside, especially when flying the planes! Pretty cool how you can just sit back and just rest your hand on the desk. :);)

what you want is the "microsoft wheel mouse optical" around 17 - 20 bucks at bestbuy or walmart... fuck anything more than this mouse as it is prefection incarnate.
