Hopefully our resident pro @Frag Maniac will drop by to commentDo most hardcore gamers still prefer wired mice?
Others may not know batteries aren't needed in USB-chargeable mice, like my Logitech MX Master.Quite often wireless are heavier due to the batteries
I don't see how that's possible since some kind of battery would have to be in it to even hold the charge in the first place. Seems like you're really just talking about a battery that's more efficient, high tech, and shaped differently than the AAs they used to use. It's possible as well these batteries are not removeable or replaceable.Others may not know batteries aren't needed in USB-chargeable mice, like my Logitech MX Master.
My bad, you're right of course. I was thinking of removable batteries and the hassles with them. I like a heavy mouse, so the extra weight isn't a factor for me, so I forget it's theresome kind of battery would have to be in it
I think you mean "competitive" gamers. Pretty much everyone here is "hardcore", but few of us play competitive games, many of which are actually casual.Do most hardcore gamers still prefer wired mice? A few years ago most didn’t like wireless because of lag an stuff.
Uh, no he didn't@Brian Boru said a heavy one is the best while gaming
Very true, in fact it ties into what sensitivity you use as well, because those whom are used to and can handle high sensitivity are less likely to pick up the mouse to brush it across the pad more than once due to not having to drag it as far with higher sensitivity. It also ties into what kind of games you play, because some games have a broad range of sensitivity from iron sights, to scoped weapons, to turrets.Uh, no he didn't
Mouse is a totally personal choice, heavy wireless is best for me, light wired for someone else, etc.
This article is pretty comprehensive. They are both as good as each other these days.Do most hardcore gamers still prefer wired mice? A few years ago most didn’t like wireless because of lag an stuff.
Would give a new meaning to 'hover'maglev mouse mat idea
Yes those inductive mouse mats do look like a good solution. There are also carbon fibre mouse mats.Would give a new meaning to 'hover'
Has anyone tried those inductive mouse mats, that charge it in situ? Any good?
Agreed.Wired is always better even if the latter is good too
I experience mouse lag everytime I put in a USB data drive. Mouse lags incredibly much when I transfer files to a usb thumb drive or transfer files between a usb external drive and my computer. I don't understand why. This mouse is a 2.4Ghz wireless office mouse.A few years ago most didn’t like wireless because of lag an stuff.

It could be wireless signal corruption since it doesn't happen with wired mouse.Welcome to the forum
♣ Power overload—2 drives in action draw most of your available power, leaving little for all other peripherals. Disconnect any other unneeded USB peripherals, especially heavy power draws like external drives.
♦ Wireless signal corruption—does it happen with wired mouse also? Move mouse dongle physically away from drive ports, especially the external drive port.
♥ USB overload—too much going on at once for your USB systems to handle it all, like the power problem.
♣ Move affected components physically away from each other
♦ Reduce simultaneous power draw, plug devices into separate wall sockets
♥ Get a powered USB hub—eg I've used this one for 6-7 years.
If you're still in trouble, start a new thread in Peripherals forum and the community experts will dive in—it's an overload or conflict
