    Recommend me a....

    ...Mouse. Or a bunch of them. Needs to be cheap, be wired, be USB, be optical, be durable, and full sized (not some compact nub. We are buying in bulk (they are for the lab). We liked the Microsoft basic optical mouse v 2.0, but can't find then cheap anywhere.

    We always get RX250 Mouse

    They seem very hard wearing and normally cost around £5 each in bulk.

    +1 at what @FN-GM said. Just bought a load of them for our school as, for some reason, I've had about 8 Fujitsu mice just suddenly stop working over the last few weeks. Bizarre!

    Edit: By the way, look for Microsoft Optical Mouse 200 for business as they seem to be the same thing, just cheaper.

    Logitech b110, if you wait, you can often get them on a bogof! making them about £3.00 each.

    @MordyT are you based across the pond then? Be worth checking if Novatech ship abroad or whether you can source the Logitech locally.

    Across unfortunately. But the mouse models that people find that last is what I needed most, so that. The b110 looks like a great option.
