Currently I have 2 computers that I use. I have one at home and one at my brother’s house I use for network gaming. My network gaming machine has slightly less horsepower than the box I have at home, but it is adequate for my online gaming needs. Anyways, I was using a standard roller-ball mouse and it was driving me crazy. It would continue to get dirty and wouldn’t roll worth beans. I decided to go out and get a laser mouse; similar to the mouse I use at home. I went to Wal-Mart and looked around at the small selection of mice they have their, and debated between needing a cordless mouse or not. After careful deliberation, I decided I’d get the $19.99 (Generic) Micro Innovations Laser Cordless (for us poor folks on a budget). I figured if it was crap and I didn’t like it, I could simply return it and get another one without a hassle. I went home and hooked this new toy up to my computer, and WOW was I surprised. I’m no mouse expert, but this mouse works great. I was really worried about cordless loosing sensitivity, but this mouse is WAY better than the roller-ball mouse I was using. It is even better then the Microsoft Laser I have at home. I’m going to go buy another one of these babies for home. At $20 a pop they seem to be worth every penny. It has 4 buttons and a sleek design. It Also has a handsome little receiver that doesn’t clutter your desk. The only thing that I’m worried about now is the general life-span of the mouse and the battery life of the AA’s it uses. Other than that, this mouse rocks!

Guys,

I'm moving this to the Dog Pound, so that people who are interested in great products can find it, too. I'll leave a link here :)

At least it bang for your buck
i had a deyboard like that, but it was broken, due to hard gaming, and abuse due to losing on online games.
