    A friend of mine was telling me about an optical mouse and when Home Depot brought them in, made by General Electric, I picked one up for $5.95. Anybody else use them? Whaddya think?

    My Logitech is 5 years old and works as good today as the first day. Rattler is right though some times they have issues with certain surfaces.

    Wireless? Hmmm.... Anyways, aside from the fact that it isn't connected to the back of my outdated tower, what advantage would it have over the thing that I just bought?

    basically what you just mentioned - it's not connected to anything, so allows greater freedom of movement and mouse placement. Also nice if you have the urge to use your mouse from the other side of the room [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    They eat batteries. My mother in law has one. Personally I do not see the point.

    As for an optical mouse I have a Logitech which I've had for several years. I got tired of cleaning the cat hair out of the mouse ball all the time.
