My left mouse button doesn't register clicks sometimes, and it's screwing me over in duels. I need a new one. However, I am unable to find any mice like my own now.

I use a trackball



I'm looking for this 3 button mouse

however, not this TWO button one

the difference is the ball placement. The bottom picture is very unconfortable.


I'm so used to my top one, it's hard to get used to the new 2 button mice....it sucks.


Does anyone know where to find the logitech mouse on the top? I've been to several stores. I might have to try finding one online somewhere.

www.logitech.com, nothing else will do! :D

the second trackball looks like a mouse with a tumour

I don't know much about Trackballs or where to get them. Try an Optical Mouse! You never have to clean it, never have to roll it, you can have it cordless and guess what! You have a red light below to play with!

And you can even colour it bright pink! :D

You get much more control with a trackball...not to mention more room for your hand with 3 buttons instead of squished together for a mouse wheel as a third button.

Maybe you can go into mechanics and sprite an optical mouse and a trackball to make an Super-cool-optical-ultra-trackball!!!

No store has the trackball of your style? That's gotta suck

The point of optical was for better performance and reaction time. the wireless totally cuts down on that, sure you may not notice the lag with the naked eye, but it's just wrong and very, very bad.

It makes sithy cry.:(

I had a wireless optical mouse too, it made me weep very very much. :(

But then I got a wired optical MX500, and then all was good in the land of Tyriondom!

:p
