Thumbs up My Favorite Mouse

No, not Mickey. It's this thing:

Meet the Logitech Performance MX







Look at these glide-pads:


They make for ultra-smooth mouse-movement. Far, far better than my last Microsoft mouse with four tiny slide-pads. And because it's dark-field tech, it will work on more surfaces than a laser-mouse (including glass!), and doesn't have any annoying lights on it.

It actually has four thumb buttons. If you look at the bottom of the thumb-cut out, the "wing", there's a fourth button on the very bottom against the table-top there that you can also customize, which is surprisingly easy to press, and unique in the world of mice.

In my opinion, two thumb buttons is minimum. Three is gravy, and four is awesome. I know some of you will come back and advocate a mouse with nine or more buttons, but I think that's a bit overkill :P

Now, the crazy thing is that I had this mouse two years ago, but had to return it when I ran into a weird install error. Now that I have a new computer, I knew I'd eventually go back to this mouse.

I was looking up prices on it recently since my current mouse had been annoying me somewhat (thus giving me excuse to replace it :P), and I found it for about $70 on Amazon! Compare that to its regular SRP of $99.

Man, this mouse is so smooth and beautiful. I really, really recommend it. I've never used a more comfortable mouse. And I'm so touchy about mice that I won't buy one unless I can feel how it fits my hand in a store first.

So, if you're looking for a new mouse, consider this one.

I love my Sidewinder X8. I've mentioned it before.
It's also no longer in production and getting difficult to find, glad i picked one up for cheap.

That was my 2nd choice, and what I had been using before I got this mouse.

I do like the X8:


But I give it 90% compared to the Performance MX's 97%. It's now in a box as a backup :P

I'm a fan of the claw grip style of mouse, whenever my X8 dies on me (I give it a few more years) i have no idea what kind of mouse will be available. Hopefully a refined version of the Cyborg R.A.T.
