Cheap wired Mice

0

Wired mice are normally connected via the USB interface. Compared to similarly equipped wireless mice, these tend to be cheaper and you don’t have to deal with the hassle of recharging or battery replacement, since they are powered directly from the computer. The downside is their limited reach, as the power cord keeps you tied to the computer.

How to choose a wired mouse?

Wired gaming mouse

Gaming mice are more durable compared to office mice and tend to have a more striking and attractive design. They also have a rubberised surface to provide a good grip. Many feature adjustable colour backlighting. All these extras mean that gaming mice tend to be more expensive compared to office models with comparable hardware parameters.

Wired office mouse

Ideal for everyday use in home and office. Their design tends to be more muted and less extravagant than in gaming mice. Office mice are designed for ergonomic comfort, which is crucial for people who work for hours every day without a break. Compared to similarly equipped gaming models, office mice are usually cheaper.

Other types of wired office mice

  • Vertical - provide a more natural grip to the wrist. Help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Trackball - mice that let you control the cursor (the little arrow on the screen) by a trackball instead of the sensor on the bottom of the mouse.
  • Tablets - replace the mouse for graphics. Operated using the stylus motion across the touchpad.

What else should I know before buying a wired mouse

Orientation - when choosing a mouse, focus on its shape. Although most mice are made for right-handed people, there are also symmetrical mice and special mice for lefties.

Sensors

  • Optical - generally cheaper. They cope better with rough and reflective surfaces.
  • Laser - more accurate than optical sensors, but don't cope well with reflective surfaces. Laser sensors can be found on more expensive models.

Buy a mouse pad to significantly improve the detection accuracy of your mouse.

DPI

Higher DPI boosts mouse sensitivity, so small mouse movements translate to large movements of your cursor on the screen. Most modern mice have DPI values of 1000 and higher, which is more than enough for a normal user. If you play games or work with specific applications such as CAD, choose a mouse with DPI 2000 and higher. 

Scroll wheel

Some scroll wheels can be tilted to the side, allowing the wheel to move the picture both vertically and horizontally. The popular Hyperscroll feature lets you quickly scroll through very long documents. Some mice don’t have a scroll wheel at all and feature a small touch pad instead.
