Re: mouse mat

I saw a baby safety seat for sale on eBay for over £1000. I liked the seat, so I emailed asking what the real price was as it was obviously a typo.
Apparently, if they have recurring stock but have run out, they simply amend the price to something that no-one will pay. When news stock arrives they amend it back to the real price. Much easier than relating, and cheaper too they said.

Re: mouse mat

I suppose I should use a mat but, I don't. I just use that small area on the lap top to the right along side the touch-pad <that I don't use at all> a consequence of this is that those sticky labels for the processor and Windows Vista (as it was when I bought it) are completely worn down to the metallic backing.
Frankly if you use an optical mouse I wouldn't bother replacing the mat, most of them work well on most surfaces including the arms of my armchair that I use with a fair regularity.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: mouse mat

I can say yes
In the sense that all the business clients (locally & surrounding areas that I deal with) still use them
There are the minimum of Domestic clients that still use them (the ones that still use a PC though
Personally I ain't used one for quite a while  Wink

Yes, it helps me locate the mouse on a crowded desk Roll eyes
Anyone use multi-screen systems? any tricks on getting the mouse-pointer from RH side of far right screen to LH side of far left screen.
A wrap-around mouse app would be good  Cheesy

Re: mouse mat

using a mionix sargas 400 mat with my G500s I find hitting the dpi button and swiping it is almost instantly moved from screen to screen, unfortunately sometimes it will get stuck between screens if I inadvertently swipe diagonally ........once across to the screen I require clicking dpi down button a time or two provides the ability to keep it where I want it Smiley
before getting such a nice mouse though I had to lift n swipe n lift n swipe a few times to swap screens in the way you describe, which is probably why I bought a second G500s once I decided I liked it (so when this one fails I wont have to revert to using the 3 button mouse again whilst finding another decent DPI switching one I like the feel of)
as for mouse mats, I found not using one the optical sensor got gummed up to fast and it would randomly hit a dirt spot and not respond as it should (shooting off in random directions) when used on a desktop, the lappy one I tend to use on whatever cloth surface is closest and comfortable Smiley
as you say torpc its all down to where and what your using, I was using hobby craft felt sheeting for a few years before I got a freebie large mat with a mobile mouse and having it means I keep a mouse space in the mountain of junk that builds up on the desk  Wink
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: mouse mat

People only really needed mouses mats when they had balls.

Edit: sorry - corrected the typo.

Re: mouse mat

I have a cheap Chinese 'gaming' mouse, that cost less than £5. It works on all surfaces, but I tend to use a lacquered placemat, and it never lets me down.
I use a laptop now, with the placemat on the arm of the sofa.

Re: mouse mat

I use an aidata mouse mat with a wrist support. Seems to work. Without the wrist support often  my whole arm was in the air which caused tension. With the wrist support my arm is firmly on the desk and no arm or wrist problems Smiley

Re: mouse mat

I use a Logitech Nano VX laser exactly the same as this one:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001JLCMZK/ref=asc_df_B001JLCMZK20661382?smid=A2Q5J9SPLH7AQ&tag=kelkoo094...
I will say right away I didn't pay anything like the silly £169 quoted in the ad, I paid something around £35 from Staples, who no longer stock it, I have wondered a couple of times if they made a pricing error.
I have to say though its without doubt the best mouse I've ever had and I've tried many of them over the years.
But, it is exactly the same as the one shown in the ad.
