    Hey,

    I've been reading about bluetooth mouses since to use with my future macbook pro for casual use and some gaming (COD4).

    Does anyone know which mouse is better between the bluetooth mighy mouse, Logitech V470, Kensington Si670m, Razer Pro|Click Mobile Notebook Mouse (black). Thanks.:)

    Well personally I love the mighty mouse, but honestly the wired one is a lot more solid than the wireless one.

    The only mouse that I would ever buy to replace my wireless mighty mouse would be the Logitech MX Revolution.

    Is there a big difference between the wireless and wired mighty mouse for gaming. Is there a noticeable lag?

    Not really, unless you play FPS, which is what CoD4 is. Get the wired one. I have heard a lot of reports of how bluetooth lags in FPS games. Wired is much faster than bluetooth. USB 2.0 reaches 400mb/sec and bluetooth, even though I don't know its speed, is much slower.

    Only buy the wireless (bluetooth) mighty mouse for better tracking engine, and no cables for convenience. the wired mighty mouse uses optical (red light), but is much faster. the wireless mighty mouse uses laser, but is a little slower. kind of a tradeof.

    Well I don't really game, but there is very little lag on the mighty mouse, I dont notice it at all.

    What I meant was that the wired one has a tendency not to crap out as much.
    I have 2 wired ones and they have bother worked flawlessly.

    I have one wireless one and the scroll ball gets dirty and stops working a lot less frequently than the wired one... Maybe mine is just a fluke, dont get me wrong I would never use a wired MM for my MBP setup, and would prefer a wireless one, but the build quality on the wired one is better in my experience.

    I'm using the wired MM with my MBP and I have to say this is a far better mouse than I first thought. Very solid. The only bad thing is the wire which sometimes gets in the way.

    MM. The worst mouse I've ever laid my hands on. MX Revolution. I was surprised the Apple mouse communicated so poorly with my Apple computer. I mean they had insider advantage!
