Default What annoys me? Mice!

Apropo budget and reliable .... let's talk about annoying mice!



No! PC Gaming Mice!

Nerdy special gaming equipment like those ... things.



- $ 44

- My 1st thought when I opened the package: "Shit, the Borg are missing spare parts now!"



"I hope they didn't already start searching for them!"

- My 1st thought when I began testing this alleged 'Supa-Dupa-Mouse' with its 30000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 dpi (and this was just the lowest setting!):

"Ok, it blinks. Blue, red. Red, blue, Blue-red. First Blue-red, then Red-blue. I shouldn't be at all surprised if there opens a little hatch now and a very small alien left its spaceship and waddles across my desk."



- My last thoughts regarding this specific Gaming Mouse - after further testing (respectively after I tried to continue my test): "Time flies! It seems to me that I bought this mouse just some hours ago in a hardware store. But then it couldn't be already faulty."



The mouse suddenly stopped working.

Maybe the little alien inside died from whiplash injuries because of too hard clicking?

- I brought it back to the seller - got another one.

Those aliens in their small blue-red/red-blue blinking spaceships are geriatric!



They die shortly after landing!

- I brought the mouse back to the seller agaaain - got another one. Different manufacturer, similar model. This time: Blue-green, Green-Blue.

Ok, this Gaming Mouse died after 7 days of use! Yes, it survived 1 week! 168 hours!



Obviously it was a long-term solution! It payed off to invest more.

- $ 48



And the moral of this story: I opened my desk, plugged my ancient Logitech M90 Mouse (about $ 10) in and it still works - indestructable, trustworthy. Since many years.



You can even dissasemble it for cleaning. Unlike 'Borg Blinking Mouse'!

Hey there, manufacturers of overpriced cheesy PC Gaming hardware?

Hey, PC Gaming Mice Manufacturers?
Last year I bought a "gaming mouse" at the Dolleramma for $1.50.



It works great and is as fast as I can keep up with!

LMFAO...........

Really I do feel your frustration but ........... giggle......

I've used a corded Logitech (optical) mouse for years. I also have a corded keyboard with no lights at all, and corded speakers, and a pathetically small 23" flatscreen LCD monitor. I run Win 7, and like it.

Call me a Luddite.

I still have a working laptop with XP SP3, and two working desktops that run Win 98 and, believe it or not, Win 95. They run, but you can't do jack shit with them, except maybe write Cobol in Notepad...

TM I don't believe that I implied you or any one else is a dummy. If you think that I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

I think my oldest one is about 15 years. I also have several old TV series I got from IOffer that are rips and they still play fine. Maybe I am just lucky
I have gone through 3-4 players over the years with out a problem. Currently I am using two Blu ray players and have no problem with either one.

To be honest: at my age I don't need stuff like 'Force Feedback' Joysticks anymore .... I tremble myself - even with my 'joy stick'!



Good luck with your mouse (and the little alien inside). I'll stay with 'classical'' equipment like a plain Logitech mouse. It has 'only' 1000 dpi, but at least it works flawlessly.

It is true that quality can vary, back around 10 years ago I worked for a company that contracted out their old back-up data to another firm, who took all the paperwork going back for years, scanned it, and wrote it on to discs (and then shredded the paperwork).

A little while later this caused a major problem, when it turned out that the company had used cheap labels for the discs - as soon as one was placed in an optical drive, the motion affected the label, so that all the data was corrupted, and the disc almost felt like it was melting if you took it out and held it.

Also, exposure to magnets can affect discs.

It's the same with book binding, although you'd think humanity might have perfected it by now, I have still bought a book new and it's fallen apart before I've finished reading it, and I am VERY careful with books.
