Technika Wired Optical Mouse
Advantages: fast, cheap, reliable, dependable, good all round, responsive, stylish, ergonomic, plug and play.
Disadvantages: wired, but who cares?
This is a really good mouse all round. It is popular if a little bit ubiquitous. It has a stylish, very ergonomic design and that fact that it is black means that it doesn't show any dirt whatsoever, so unless it starts to malfunction, which I've never found to occur yet, it very rarely needs cleaning.
It matches most desktop set ups, keyboards and the like, and is extremely responsive and economical. Its battery life is very impressive and is ideal for gamers. Its wired USB interface and optical mode is extremely popular and compatible with pretty much anything you'd care to plug it into. It's plug and play too so there isn't any need to install the software or input drivers or anything silly like that.
This is a very standard, very straight forward optical, practical mouse that is well worth the money and extremely robust ,as well as lasting for a long time and rarely running out of batteries. It takes Double A batteries like most mice and they never fall out or rattle around, owing to the mouse's very well tested and strong, tough design.
The wire that it is attached to is made of a good quality plastic compound meaning that it is highly unlikely to fray or damage and it doesn't bunch up and get in the way of the mouse itself. I've had problems of that kind with mice before and thankfully this one has no such trouble, or any trouble for that matter.
I am unable to fault this item in any way, and unless you're some kind of visual artist who requires intensely high amounts of dexterity, you can't really do any better than this simple, functional interface item. I couldn't recommend the Technika Wired Optical Mouse more strongly, because we all know that a wireless capacity isn't really necessary.
Summary: A good practical mouse.
