which one do you have?? a wireless mouse for your computer or a cord mouse that came with your computer?? I have a mouse with a cord that came with my computer. I seem to like them better than the wireless mouse, cause i'm not always haveing to change the batteries, and the kids can't run off with it. lol

Well at the moment im on a laptop so I'm using one of those silly touchpad things which don't resemble a mouse at all - They're so frustating. I much prefer wireless mouses - Ive nly used one once and they're amazing! lOl Im quite easily impressed by technology I think.

I have and use both but I prefer the corded version. In my opinion and experience the concept of a wireless is misleading as you still have a transceiver attached to the computer so the "wireless" mouse only transmits low frequency radiation a very short distance so in my cost/benefit mind, the extra cost of the bogus "wireless" is not justified. I'll take a $9 corded optical mouse over a $50 false wireless mouse any day!

I use a wireless mouse for my computer although I also have a corded gaming mouse as well. Both are ok with me, as long as they are optical or laser mice and not ball mice. Ball mice is too tedious to use, lousy accuracy and they require cleaning very often. Optical or laser mice are a lot better, whether or not they are wireless or corded...

I like to use cord mouse much more. A friend gave me a wireless mouse and keyboard in the past. At first I was excited to use them. Later I found when I typed fast. It's easy to have typing errors because it is wireless. So I have to change it to cord mouse and keyboard. After that, I will never think of using wireless keyboard and mouse. I love China

i choose wireless one over cord mouse! i am using a coed mouse and find it quite cumbersome to arrange all the wirings behind and when i am playing games its wire get tangled all the time! so i would go for the wireless one. i haven't got one yet but am planning to do so in the near future!

I currently have a Logitech MX Revolution (wireless). I used to have the Logitech G5 (cord). Honestly, I like the MX Revolution a lot better, it's nice to not have a cord and it charges on a dock, I don't need batteries. Only problem is it uses up another USB port. With my external hard drive on one, the mouse on another...I only have one left for a thumb drive or something.

I use the mouse with a cord that came with my computer. I just haven't ever bought another one cause this one works just fine. If I had a wireless one just sitting here then I'm sure my little boy would run off with it. I'd probably find it weeks later buried down in his toy box. LOL

i used cord mouse right now and i am more comfortable using this than wireless mouse. i agree with you it is better to use cord than wireless because in wireless we need to change the batteries every now and then. thanks for the post. happy sunday

I have a mouse with a cord and it drives me nuts. I keep saying we should get an optical mouse, but no one listens to me. One day I'll be at a computer store and will pick one up.

I have two computers in my home. One is using corded keyboard and mouse, while the other is using a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard. If you ask me, I'd much prefer the wireless cousins because I am not hampered by the cord and can move them around quite freely. The only issue is with the batteries, because I am a pretty heavy user of the PC, and my two alkaline batteries each for the mouse and keyboard last me about 4 to 5 weeks at most, so I have to change them every now and then and spend money on batteries.

mouse - Cordless Mouse
I love to use cordless mouse but as what you have said its not advicesable to people who have no patience to change battery when needid. I'm using mouse with cord cuz Its still the best interms of movement response and yes its not easy to get lost.

It took me quite a while to accept a wireless mouse because the earlier ones often used to struggle to keep the connection if you moved them too rapidly. Now that the technology has improved and the link is stable I would not consider returning to a corded mouse. After using a wireless mouse for a fair period of time the wired mouse, which originally seemed so free to manipulate, appears quite restricted.

I honestly like the cord mouse because it doesn't interfere with any wireless devices in your home. hehe. We had one before and it interfere with bluetooth and our wireless phone! So, I prefer to have a cord mouse hehehe.

Actually I do have the wireless mouse but I do prefer to use the wired one due to the high costs associated with the wireless mouse for use of batteries. I suggest you too not to use wireless one.

I am using a corded mouse right now. I do have a cordless one and I like it, but I got sick of having to change the batteries all of the time. The cord on the one I have hooked up right now is getting on my nerves though, so I might switch back soon.
