Mouse Pad With ' Wrist Rest ' - Suggestions

I recently got a g7 and was wondering what type of mouse pad i should get to use with it. I would prefer something with a 'wrist rest' and not something that is going to take up my whole desk. The pad i got now is kinda small and the mouse seems to be jumping around when i use it.

Suggestions On Wireless Or Wired Keyboard / Mouse

I'm still deciding whether or not i would want a wireless setup. I've had a love/hate relationship with them. Anyway, should i go for the clutter with wired keyboard/mouse? What would you suggest?
Or should i go for the wireless components? If i do, i'd like some sort of recharger for them. What would you suggest?

Suggestions For Wireless Keyboard, Mouse For Htpc / Gaming

Okay got my new htpc rig set up on my 62" dlp so i can now do my ht and gaming now. My old keyboard and mouse won't cut it (old logitch and mce kb). I have tried the logitech mx5000 bluetooth mouse and keyboard, and bottom line, lag is impossible. It's like a good 2-3 second delay at random intervals. My next choice i was considiring was the ms desktop elite, but have read similar but lots fewer complaints about lag. I need a mouse that at least has 1 or two side buttons. Distance from htpc to couch is in the 10' to 12' range max. I'm open to suggestions and or experience with the ms elite.

Ratpadz Xt Mouse Pad For Logitech G9 Mouse

I have the g9 mouse which is awesome but my current mouse pad seems to not work sometimes. It acts like a ball mouse does when you don't clean it for a long time. It skips and doesn't seem to track till i mess with it. It is rare when it happens but it does happen. The mouse pad i use is just a cheap cloth one i got from fry's for 3 bucks. I was looking into getting a new mouse pad. Specifically the ratpadz xt because i can send it back if i don't like it or it doesn't work the way i am expecting it to. Does anyone have a g9 mouse and a ratpadz xt pad? How does it work? Do you have something else you prefer over the ratpadz xt? I want to get a pad that doesn't skip.

Backlit Small Keyboard Without Num Pad - Suggestions

I'm looking for a backlit keyboard with no number pad or a separate number pad. I've seen the keyboard/mouse/surface thread and i know the deck combination keyboard/number pad is exactly what i'm looking for. But i want to see if there's anything cheaper. The deck looks like it will last a long time so i probably should bite the bullet, but, any cheaper alternatives?

Ergonomic Mouse And Mouse Pad

I need something for my right wrist, which was shot all to *** last year by a temp job that required massive amounts of 10-key data entry and an obscene amount of clicking and dragging of the mouse. I probably have carpal tunnel in the damn thing right now, or at least i am dangerously close. I bought some sort of beanbag to go under my wrist for $10 last year. It hurt my wrist bad, which was the opposite of what it said it would do. I bought a gel mousepad with a gel resting pad for my wrist for $20 last year. It hurt my wrist bad, which was the opposite of what it said it would do. So, obviously i can't search for myself because i always end up buying crap that only makes things worse.

Is It Bad To Use A Mouse Without A Mouse Pad ?

Is it bad to use a mouse without a mouse pad? I have logitech g5 mouse, and i was using it without a mouse pad but i figured out that my computer table has a smooth surface and more space to work with. The g5 glides well too as it has polytetrafluoroethylene feet as well, so it's smooth. So is it ok without a mouse pad?

Mouse Pad

I'm in love with my new mouse pad. It's from a company called cs hyde

http://www.Cshyde.com/c4web/c4ngen04.htm

The pad i bought is the c4 ngen 04. It's paper thin and has a rubbing backing that prevents it from sliding at all. The surface is made of some kind of teflon-ish material. It's smooth as glass and works great with every mouse i've tried. Maybe the best thing are the prices. My 16" x 16" pad cost just $18 shipped.

Mouse Pad For Logitech G5

I'm ordering a logitech g5 and was wondering if i really need a mouse pad for it? I could care less if the mouse pad gives me that slight edge. Will it work ok on my desk (wood)? The reason i don't want a new mouse pad is because i have a very small area for my mouse and i couldn't fit a mouse pad really without cutting it.

Durable Mouse Pad - Recommendations

My first highend pad was the razer exact mat that had both speed and control surfaces, paired that pad with a g7 and less than years usage the control surface was smoothed out, giving it a very high friction when moving the mouse in the middle area so i decided to use the speed surface and it didnt last any longer than the control surface. Now im currently using a logitech g9 with a razer goliathus (med size ) control edition and the very same thing is happening, the middle area where i move my mouse around the most has smoothed out the weaving this giving so much friction, im looking at the steel series mousepad, are the made of better or just the very same quality? I would want something that will last atleast 3-4years, now im back to a using a yellow paper.

I have checked on the packaging and info that i got with the mat when i ordered it but no indications on how to clean it.

Ergonomic Mouse Device - Suggestions

I'm on the comp alot, and my wrist hurts from all the mousing around. I tried looking into two products so far, and neither are really working for me. The first was a handheld touchpad that i got off of ebay. It's ok, but even after using it out for a while, the speed is just not there with day to day tasks. (Mousing around, right clicking on a link and telling to it to open in a new tab. I do this alot with most of my web surfing). The one i'm currently using is the evoluent vertical mouse. First thing is right out of the box, it has "stuttering" issues. If the mouse is completely motionless, the pointer will sometimes stutter around the screen, as if i'm shaking my hand. This obviously makes for some mis-clicks with things. Also, as great as it sounded, it's just not entirely working out speedwise either. I am no where near as speedy as with a regular mouse of clicking on things and navigating drop down menus to click on options, etc. So, does anyone have anything they use that they like? I was recently thinking about a pen mouse or such. Thinking about it, there wouldn't be any need for useability retraining of my hand, we've all been using/holding pencils/pens for a long time. Looking at the grip though, holding a regular mouse, and then going to holding a pen, there isn't much change in the wrist/hand, so i wonder if that would even give me any benefit? (I also use 3 monitors, so if that makes a difference, i think i saw something about using multiple monitors and not being able to use mouse pen pads?

Does Logitech G5 Will Not Work On Black Colored Mouse Pad ?

Has anyone here heard of the rumors that this mouse will not work on a black colored mousepad? If this is true, logitech really f'ed up and made a big mistake. A friend is looking to buy the g5 and had heard that it will not work on a black surface. There are even claims that logitech has confirmed this and is simply telling people to go out and buy a blue mousepad.

Suggestions On A Wired, Optical, Usb Mouse

Does anyone have any suggestions on a wired, optical, usb mouse which is sturdy and will last a long time? I want to get one as a present for my roommate, but he has a tendency to slam either his keyboard or mouse when he gets owned in call of duty. His current mouse already clicks quite badly and it's also a wireless which means it eats a ton of batteries, which he doesn't like. So it has to be optical and wired and usb (his ps/2 port for mouse seems to not work), and as damage-resistant as possible! Oh yeah, also something not really expensive. Any ideas?

Mouse Pad Bad Surface - Pointer Darts And Jiggles

My mouse is a logitech mx500 connected via usb with unmodified bandwidth. I'd like to know what everyone is using as a surface, because maybe that's why my optical sensor senses darting, miniscule movement when there is none. I've tried everything from the original foam-and-cloth pad to the smooth plastic with grainy background to a polished wood surface to heavy drawing paper with no luck. That's why i figured it was the sensor itself. Does anybody who really knows optical sensors know what the best surface, color- and texture-wise, as well as whether a uniform or vastly differing pattern is best?

Does Gaming Mouse Pad Make Difference In Playing Games?

I was thinking about getting a gaming mouse mat. I didn't know how many of you guys on here use them, and i wonder what you thought of them. I really want the wrist pad: does it make a lot of difference in playing games? I never seem to be that great at headshots. And i see this one has a control side, which would be great for my cad work.
