Wired or Wireless Gaming Mouse – Which Is Best?
The choice between a wireless and a wired gaming mouse really depends on your gaming needs. If comfort is what you are looking for, you are best suited with a wireless mouse. In the past, many have criticized wireless gaming mice because they cause lag and take too slow to send in movement data. However, in today’s technology, that scenario has been turned upside down. Wireless gaming mouse are now as fast as the wired gaming mouse thanks to a lot of technological innovations made available.1
Do you NEED a Wireless MMO Mouse?
I’m not so sure an MMO really requires that great of response times. I’ve never felt at a disadvantage using wireless mice while gaming, in a matter of fact, I’d think not having to contend with the wire should give wireless the upper hand.
I’m not sure at what levels of competition the response time of a wireless mouse is going to matter, but I’d have to imagine that it won’t be a factor in wow, assuming the mouse isn’t total crap.
Dead batteries are a fact of life for the wireless gamer, and you can believe that it will hit at the worst of times. I’d suggest keeping double A’s near your desk. Expect to change them at least once every 3 weeks to a month if you’re using it often.
I also wouldn’t listen to the argument that batteries cost money, spending 8 bucks every few months on a 6 pack isn’t going to break the bank, least I’d hope not. If that is the case why are you gaming? Get a job right.
I’ve never owned a rechargeable mouse, the convenience of just swapping out dead batteries shouldn’t be overlooked.
If there were two things about modern computing that I just couldn’t go back and live without, the first would be a wireless mouse, and the 2nd would be laser tracking (Track balls were a pain in the butt to maintain).2
