I have gorilla hands (fits me well) and really like optical technology. I wont go for wireless.
Any suggestion for a replacement?
My brother recently got this one
He loves it! Apparently from the reviews I've read it is a "wireless mouse for people who hate wireless mice" so you may want to consider it.
Enjoy picking out a new mouse, its not something you do very often heh :)
Thanks Visit_Thailand, I will get my hands on them for a feel.
Mind you, as Celerityfm pointed out, I've had my eye on the Logitech MX700 [logitech.com]. Even though I don't like cordless mice, it has the two thumb buttons, which I find quite handy.
The logitech mouse actually have 7 buttons. You cant see the 'normal' buttons because they are 'hidden' under flexible plastic, but they are still there. It was my main worry.
The 'previous' and 'next' buttons are a dream come true. They work with any browser I tried and will save me a lot of mousing around on WebmasterWorld's active list.
Why didn't I pick the MX700?
The MX700 is a wireless optical rechargeable mouse. It is true I didn't know about rechargeable mouses before this thread. I worried about having to manually change the batteries right in the middle of a work session. Of course, a rechargeable mouse solves the problem, right? Right. But what about if the mouse rechargeable batteries go dead in the middle of the day? Can I afford waiting 30 minutes before I can use the mouse again? Obviously not.
Also, there is that rechargeable battery 'memory' thing. I believe we all know it is preferable to recharge a battery at the end of cycle. Recharging a half full rechargeable or recharging it to half of it's potential capacity will limit it's autonomy and longevity. For it to be a viable option, you have to use it moderatly and recharge it regularly. I just pictured myself in the scenario of having to wait before I could use the mouse again once. It was a defenite NOGO.
I believe wireless optical rechargeable mouse are a viable option for the moderate and disciplined mouse users. Are the average WebmasterWorld members moderate and disciplined mouse users? Obviously not. :)
Thanks to all for your input. With the MX500, I rediscover the new joys in mousing around with the excitement of first using it in 1984.

Quebec is not in the eligible "State or province" list. Maybe the keyboard is in English only?
Anyways, like I sayd to EliteWeb in sticky, (thanks again for the heads up) I wont fuss about it since the keyboard is black. Who on earth is using black keyboards? ;)
