This might be a weird question, but what computer mice do you recommend? How segmented is this market really?

Wired is preferred, really. Normal orientation (aka: not vertical, which my current one is). I'm not a gamer.

@Greg Logitech, both corded and Bluetooth./

M100 - corded and cheap
M557 / 535 / 537 Bluetooth mouse.

@Greg Only issue with Logitech mice is the switches give out after about 2-3 years so you'll get some ghost clicks or no clicks. That said I haven't found anything else that works nearly as well.

@craigmaloney @Greg I also usually go with the Logitechs, though I tend to go cordless with the USB dongle that goes with the keyboards also. Seem adequate :)


@brion @craigmaloney @Greg when i finally got sick of charging the batteries on fancy wireless mice, i went back to these:

i don't even know if you can still buy 'em, but i have a stockpile dating to my days as the person who fixes your printer and fishes a new mouse out of the pile in the supply closet...

@brennen @Greg @craigmaloney @brion I have a stockpile of no-scrollwheel 3-button USB mice, not because I fished them out of a pile, but because I'm a UNIX-obsessive who actively set out to buy a lifetime supply.
