Good mouse suggestion
show user profile  GloriaJean
This is a pretty inane question but...I have a Logitech M705 mouse. It's been pretty good except with MAX. I know it doesn't sound like a MAX problem but the mouse just doesn't react well when clicking on an icon. Tried different settings in MAX and control panel/mouse.

You folks are a pretty astute bunch. What mouse would y'all suggest as a replacement?

I used the have the R.A.T cyborg one, crazy mouse, aluminum frame, replaceable everything blah blah blah... amazing engineering but honstly it was far too complicated for my use and didn't feel very good

I used it for years and it got old... since than I got the corsair katar, nice simple design and good price, I liked it soo much I bought an extra one to use at work

Thank you for the feedback, much appreciated. I will checkout the Corsair right away.

Uh oh, I need a wireless mouse (I think). Seems like all the premium mice are corded models. What's a girl to? Guess I'm going to consider a corded mouse.

I got the Roccat Kova about a month ago.
Its very good- it is ambidextrous which is very important for me as a lefty, and it has a ton of customizable buttons which is very useful in windows amd in max in particular (i define a few of them as shift, cntrl, alt volume up and down, etc)

Mouse shape is the first thing to pay attention to. Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0 fits my thin hand with long fingers best but in your case it might be something different. Take a look at Logitech G403 prodigy mice. There's a wireless option for additional (already a bit steep) price.

Edit: Also I wouldn't recommend buying a mouse with complex ergonomic shapes. Like the ones with grooves for your ring and little fingers. It might fees comfortable from the start but after hours of use you might not want to hold your fingers in the same exact spots on the mouse.

I've been buying logitech's high end mice my entire life. I have always liked their size and ergonomics, but the last one i bought was quite a dissapointment:

I had to return it to the shop after only one year. Scrollwheel sensors are broken, and the left click button sporadically misses a click. Also a dragging and dropping motion is usually interrupted. I have returned it, and gotten a new one. The new one doesnt have these problems, but the battery only lasts a few days.

My old MX 1000, which is more than 10 years old, is still working flawlessly ... I'm not sure if my next mouse will be a logitech mouse.
