Hp Wireless Rechargeable Optical 5 Button Mouse

Recommended Posts

eh i think wireless is still in stages. I never really liked it. 2 pairs of both wireless keyboards and mouses have failed on me

Bummer. I've been thinking about getting a wireless mouse soon. I'm tired of fighting with the darn cord all the time.

@Sniper. It looks nice. Makes me want one even more. :unsure:

looks pretty nice, what do you do with the extra two buttons? how long is the battery life?

The extra buttons are programable. The batteries recharge when you put it in the dock for the night. Uses 2 AA Nickel Metal Hydride and should last about 3 weeks without charging.

Got it for $35 US at WalMart.

It uses NiMHs? I figured most use Lithium ion by now. They don't wear out as fast. But a three week charge is excellent!

But like Ma TriX 0978, I'm really not a big fan of wireless keyboards/mice. I hate having to keep up with charging a dozen different devices with batteries.

And then you have to worry about them developing memory if you charge them too much, and it just gets to be a huge pain. Not to mention, the battery usually triples or quadruples the weight of the unit. I'll stick with my wired mouse/keyboard any day.

As a gamer, it's a rule of thumb to avoid wireless because there are far too many issues. Though, if you're not good with FPS, etc; then you have something you can blame it on. :unsure:

Haven't had a chance to try it on a game yet. If it works allright I'll let you know.

I wholeheartedly agree. It was very annoying to have my mouse and my keyboard on the same channel -- I couldn't move and shoot at the same time! That and the annoying fact that if I tried moving, jumping, spinning the mouse and shooting at the same time, my wireless connection would lag!

Back to wires.
