    Optical Mice

    Anyone recommend good, preferably cheap optical mice?

    We bought a lot of these: http://cpc.farnell.com/jsp/search/pr...sp?sku=SB02621 but they have started to be returned to me due to the cursor not moving, not responding to clicks etc.

    I'm on the look out for good optical mice for the computer labs but nothing too fancy. The pupils here look after keyboards and mice exceptionally well so I'm not too concerned about them going walkies.

    we bought a load of MS intellipoint basic from Aria. They seem quite good and robust (we suffer from bored kids smashing mice)

    I don't know, but if you find some could you tell me. We have a lot of those cheap ones too, and they randomly break.

    Those Sweex mice are awful. The wires are like those strawberry laces from shops.

    We usually buy Logitech http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...id=953686-1600

    or Genius Netscroll 110 mice http://www.cclonline.com/product-inf...id=31010867100

    Here are my recommendations....

    X-Pro Mice

    Could probably do a deal for you on a quantity order

    Re: Optical Mice

    I found this 3 pack of MS Optical mice from Dabs.com :

    http://www.dabs.com/ProductView.aspx?Quicklinx=3MQ7

    I plan to replace the mice in a few computer suites so we'll probably buy quite a few of these 3pks.

    I particularly like MS mice - so hopefully these will be ok

    Those Microsoft Mice are cheaper in singles from CCL.
