I'm using a Razer Deathadder. It's a gaming mouse, as I do tend to play a lot of games on my PC (On Windows ): ). I used to purchase Logitech mice, though I had an issue with one of their products and didn't like the way the problem was treated (it wasn't), so I ditched them.

A Logitech optical mouse. classic 3 button mouse.
It seems that it's starting to die since it jerks when I move it sometimes

From the bottom of the mouse:
Optical 3D Mouse
Model: SWOP-35
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules

I think it's made by A4Tech, bought it from the post office.

Logitech MX-1000.

i just bought the MX-1100, (basically the same) and it seems a bit too heavy for my taste. but that wasn't the biggest problem, it was the height of it. my desk is kind of low, therefore making my hand/wrist go upward too much. it's amazing how a half inch can make all the difference. it is a good mouse, and ergonomic, but not right for me. i need a low profile mouse.

i'm thinking of staying with a wired mouse, as it seems more responsive. regardless of make.

i notice every little change of touch, feel, speed, etc. i'm not a big gamer, but it seems there is a difference between wired and wireless.

IntelliMouse Explorer.

It's big, it is the most comfortable mouse I have ever used; it has done many BIG years of work without fail (the occasional spray of silicon under the two main buttons when they start to stick is the only maintenance).

I will buy another of the same as it is perfect for me.

As far a the MS question is concerned? I'll support them in this instance as they have (for once) made a superior product.

Actually, not for once, I also use one of their keyboards, because it is old stock; it is (from experience) also a good keyboard.

Perhaps MS should go into hardware manufacture, they seem to be better at it. :P

I checked Microsoft, but it's not really a fair choice. I have a laptop and, when I need to use the cursor (mostly for websites), the touchpad is my first choice. But when I do any music/video/picture editing (which isn't too often), I use the mouse.
Also, a lot of people seem to apologize for using Microsoft products, but the one I use (a small, wireless, USB, laser mouse) works great.

I have a wireless keyboard/mouse combo made by Microsoft. Works great for me. Except it has a few issues when I boot into Ubuntu (i'm not really surprised).

I hate touchpads, especially the one on this laptop. I think it's dying anyway. I have a tiny blue mouse that I use for it, but I forget who makes it. It was cheap. But it works!

I used a Belkin wireless keyboard & mouse combo in the past; I quickly learned that the batteries of the mouse went flat far too fast, though the keyboard batteries (2 x aaa's) lasted for at least a year.

Logically I dumped the mouse quick smart & went back to my trusty intellimouse explorer.

The poll should have been multiple choice, I use both Microsoft and Logitech on a regular basis. I prefer Microsoft, I'm currently using a Microsoft Arc wireless, which I really like. The only problem with the Arc is that it eats batteries, I get about a month on a pair of aaa batteries.

I also have a Logitech EX110 wireless mouse/keyboard combo that work well for my HTPC, but they feel cheap.

or so the lsusb claims it to be.
i only have two logitech usb mouses and this one i use the most. its having two buttons and is the size of many of the notebook mouses and its nice and not advanced.

i have many a old ps2 mouse of different brand and i use them for the other computers i have.

i just like them so much but cannot afford to buy new mouses for older computers that cost me less to fix and get up and running than a new logitech cordless usb mouse cost.

ive been using this for 3 or 4 years. a friend of mine introduced me to it when i used to play WoW all the time. its so much better than using the touch pad on my laptop. im not a big gamer anymore so i use it for normal everyday computing. but if im feeling a bit artsy i will pull out this bad boy (http://www.wacom.com/bambootablet/bamboofun.php). the tablet is nice and comes with a mouse if i dont want to use the pen, just for fun i will use it every once and a while.

There are 4 of the things on my desk at the moment.
One wireless Labtec along with 2 wireless IT Works/Mikomi(same mouse different branding) models.Then i have a little BCL wired mouse i`m actually using just now.
It fits my hand a bit better which helps the Carpals Tunnel just that little bit more.

I generally have 2 around regardless so i can teach my youngest how to control the thing while we sit at my PC together.2 mice & dual monitors makes that so much easier......plus i can browse the forums while she`s playing 4 in a row(that & Cooliris are her current favourites).:D
She can use the touchpads on her sisters laptops a bit easier than a mouse so she will have her own before the weekends out....mabey after the Rugby.

In such a saturated market does this poll not indicate that Logitech could expand it's market share by writing configuration software for Linux users?

This would basically guarantee their presence on most Linux desktops.

Logitech are just as likely to have made a mouse or two for MS in their long history.

So many of these companies just get something made in one of the China's & have their label put on it.

I use the Logitech "Marble Mouse" trackball as well. (I have to wonder why they named a trackball "Mouse" but whatever...) I found I preferred trackballs a long time ago. I don't have to have much desktop space, no lifting-and-sliding to get across a large screen (I have always run ridiculous screen resolutions when possible) - for that matter, who needs desk space, I can prop it on my leg or the arm of a chair - and very precise pointer control with my fingertips. (Thumb ball mice don't do it - my thumb is much less precise than my fingertips.)

Although I do have a few Logitech optical mice available. They shipped one with every single laptop we ordered at my last company, and most people had their own mouse they preferred. So I collected a small fleet of the unused mice, and brought a few home. They pack into a laptop bag much better than the trackball does, and are cheap enough (free) that I don't care too much if they get damaged.

On my computer at home (Dell laptop) I use a Logitech MX518. I love this mouse. It is extremely comfortable, and has held up well over the years. Before the MX518, I used a Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000, which lasted a good 4 years or so before the scroll wheel began to have problems.

Sadly though, I cannot use my MX518 for extended periods of time. Over the years, I've started having pains in my arm after using a regular mouse. At work I use a Logitech TrackMan, which is an excellent trackball. It's extremely comfortable, and I can use it for long periods at a time without my hand going numb or my arm hurting.

Sometimes I do work from home though, and I'll pull out my spare TrackMan and use it for when I'll be sitting in front of the computer for a while.

The Logitech LX5 optical mouse. I've had it for about two years and it does everything I want. I don't think I'll ever buy a new mouse until this one becomes unusable due to age (and so far, it's showing very little wear and tear).

And while I might have paid something like thirty dollars at a RadioShack when I bought this, you can find these mice online for ten dollars or less if you look for them.

I have 3 Microsoft mice (mouses?) that I've had for ages. I use one of them on my desktop computer, and another with my EeePC when I'm at home (as well as a full-size keyboard and external monitor). But when I'm out and about, I use the EeePC's built-in touchpad. A pretty good touchpad actually.

The poll fails due to its inability to cope with the fact that I use a mouse and a touchpad.

Even though my 3 meeces still work okay, I'm toying with the idea of getting a wireless mouse. I want to get a wireless keyboard too; maybe a wireless keyboard with built-in trackball thingie that I can use with the EeePC - I like to sit on the sofa and use the machine, and at the moment I have to prop a tray on the arm of the sofa to use the mouse on. What do you all think of that (the wireless keyboard with trackball)? A good idea? Or should I persist with the tray?

I had the G7 going for a long time. The mouse wheel then got very bad and in need of lube. From usage. So I had started to lube it. But it was just getting worse and worse. So I moved to a G5. Which is very nice.

I have had 3 different Logitech mice to break this year, so I gave up on Logitech and went Microsoft. Logitech use to mean quality, but I can not say that today.

I cant tell much about mine. the acutal Logitech model number is worn away on the bottom (along with most of the feet...seriously, the hard plastic that surrounds the slippery inserts is gone even!). It is a cordless optical mouse. S/N LZ051600341 ...that's about all I know... it works, but if I had a "gaming rig" this mouse would not be a part of it :)

Oh yeah. I used to have one of those natural keyboards back when I ran a pentium 2. It WAS quite good. I had a hard time adjusting to a flat keyboard again when I started using them again, and now I have a hard time using a natural keyboard.

However, the natural is definitely better for type speed and comfort once you get used to it. I really recommend them.

Great thing because you don't have to move your hand at all while using mouse,
only your thumb for moving cursor. And you don't need much space with it.

I really like track-balls, and have tried 3 or 4 different ones, the one I like best is the Kensington Expert.

The only problem is no Linux drivers so I can't use all the buttons, but I can deal with that because it is the easiest for these 68 year old arthritic hands to use, I only have to move my finger tips and not my whole arm and wrist.

I think it's Track Point or something like that.

Do you have the alternate tip for that (that where top is sunken) that's is better for
my opinion (finger won't slip so easily)

btw. One time IBM had it also on the normal mouse instead of wheel :P
it was hilarious to use and one IBM software went grazy if you used it when the program was running. Thankfully that's not problem with think pad's mouse.

I hate my Razer Lachesis, it was too uncomfortable and it made my hand sweat like a fat man in summer. Right now its pulling duty on my HTPC, it sad that such an expensive mouse is only being use to move files.

I use Logitech MX518 that the Razer was supposed to replace for the last 3-4 years, Its starting to look uglier than when it was new. I think I'll be buying a G500 or G9x sometime after X-mas.

I agree. The Lachesis is my least favourite Razer mouse. I still somehow prefer the Diamondback, though the Copperhead is pretty nifty as well. I looked long and hard at the Naga. I really like its design and how it "feels" under your hand, but the side buttons were an overkill for what I use my mice for currently. It's marketed as a "MMOG mouse" anyway. Still, it's sexy.

Worst thing i've tried was logitech DiNovo keyboard where stating to type numbers from number pad you had to hit 1 or to keys to wake the connection before you can enter any numbers with it) That's what you can expect from wireless where they have tuned for better battery life.
