    Discussion concerning the Microsoft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer Review.

  • #2
    I didnt spring the extra cash to get an Explorer Wireless. Got a Optical Explorer USB and MAN does it glide.

    Haven't had any problems at all. Response is great.

    I will make a comment on the picing though. I purchased my Explorer USB for US$29.00 OEM when I purchased my GF3 card. I'd say its well worth it to pick up an OEM version if you can manage it.

      I've been looking at getting one of these for quite a while, but the only thing holding me back is the slight lag that you get while playing FPS.... I'm bad enough as it is, and if my mouse is going to make me worse, then I don't want one...

        typing with one hand LOL.. dog sitting on lap ATM

        in any case, i play CS constantly. the performance of the mouse ( USB Explorer) is unparalleled to any ball mouse I've used. no cursor-lag i was used to with the trackball mouse.

        man that only took me 5 minutes to type with one finger...

          I have the one for both hands and there really is no lag unless you pick up the mouse for faster turns but its probably half a sec or 1...its not major at all...atleast it doesnt clog up and get stuck running from an AWP shot...lol

            I've had a Wireless Explorer for about 2mos and I haven't noticed any lag during games. Unfortunately the battery life stinks. I've had to switch to rechargeables to keep the battery cost down. Normal alkalines last about a month for me.

              I'm using the corded intellimouse explorer since it was released and man it's really the best mouse I used to play FPS games...

              Recently I had the opportunity to play a few days with a wireless... mmm... my advice would be to avoid this one... there's a delay between the moment you move and the action. Not only in FPS, when working with my usual apps, I had to change it back to my old explorer because of that delay... For a such price you can't accept any inconveniance...

              my 2 cents,
