The Best Mouse I’ve ever used

Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth

This is the second mouse of this type that I’ve bought. It’s one I always stress over knowing that I’ll have to purchase again once the oils in my hand do too much damage, or the scroll wheel rubber inevitably breaks from overuse. This particular one has an issue with the scroll wheel in which scrolling left moves less than scrolling right. A small issue, but one that was noticeable after I purchased it to replace my first one.

Like others of it’s ilk, the battery cover has taken enough of a beating to no longer stay on the bottom, causing it’s main usage to be as such — without.

Yet, with all of these faults, this continues to be the best mouse that I’ve ever laid my hands on. Many will claim that trackball mice are the gods’ gift to men, but this.. this is my first love as far as mice are concerned.

I’ve been unable to locate a mouse to replace it in the future. Hopefully one that Amazon vendors don’t try to sell for up to $100 per mouse. Here are the features it has that I like:

Ouch — how am I going to explain this when I return it?

So why am I spilling all these beans? Two reasons:

  1. To spread the gospel of the Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer for Bluetooth (affiliate link)
  2. To ask for recommendations of new mice that fit my above requirements. I’m hoping that the knowledge of the collective will know of other mice like this

Thank you for reading — and if you do know of a Mouse like this, or better than this — please let me know!
