Wireless mouse?

I want to get a wireless mouse but was wondering (since everyone else has one already) if they work good and are worth having. Does it work as well as a regular one as far as sensitivity or smoothness when you use it?

Just though I would ask before I bought one. They are pretty cheap at least.

Also, any recommendations on brands?

I don't like wireless mouse. If you want mouse with fast and accurate sensor, its going to be electricity eater and you have to switch batteries often. They also weight than mouses with wire (because of batteries)

IMHO they work better than the old roller wired ones.

Sensitivity has not been an issue at all.

In a year of using as average I have had to replace the battery once, and I am on the comp a lot.

As far as a brand, Logitech makes a good cheap and responsive wireless.

Logitech makes a couple different types.
The one I'm using right now has a nano transmitter.
I takes one AA battery and the battery lasts about 6 months.
I use mine everyday, all day......

It depends, I have one on my computer at home and it works fine.
Sensitivity is about as good as a wired mouse. They are heavier than wired mice, but not much.
There is the battery life thing, but with most newer models I wouldn't worry about it.
They should last a good while.
Logitech is a good company to buy one from.

Love mine!, Got a GE wireless keyboard and mouse at Big Lots about a year ago for 10 bucks!

Just make sure any wireless keyboard or mouse you get uses RF, and not "line of sight" infrared to communicate. (I made that mistake the first time)

Get some rechargeable batteries too, they'll last longer.

Change my mouse batteries about every 45 days, keyboard? haven't figured out yet, The alkaline batteries have only been changed once in the year I've had it...

Hope that helps
