Found 7th Jan 2010Made hot 15th Jan 2010
Popped into Tesco Home as I needed a mouse, found that they had loads on offer and better than half price however opted for a silver "Tesco Just What I Need" mouse @ £2.00 Model H16MS-03.

Works fine and a bargain in my eyes.

+1 good deal

Cold! How did this get to a Hot deal?

You can get a WIRELESS keyboard and WIRELESS optical mouse set from various places for under £15. (1xUSB port)

Who today wants a mouse with a wire trailing about and occupying a (second) USB port that can be put to better uses????

Very seldom I vote cold but this IMHO is old technology

i think your missing the point, its not about practicality , its £2 for a cheap mouse! that could easily be kept as a spare/ throwaway or maybe people that dont enjoy putting new batteries in every 2 weeks? for £2 you can do what ya want with it lol. voted HOT.

not many people can be bothering in recharging batteries in mouse every time.
By the way, many professional gamers, choose WIRED, high-res mouses.. as wireless would dry out batteries in few days.
anyway, nobody cares

£2 is excellent value for a mouse. Myself I have a Razer Copperhead but as a back-up or non-gaming mouse I'm sure this is excellent value.

Hot.

P.S My mouse is wired, and I would NOT have a wireless mouse in office/Rambo Room.

Hot from me, Just got one for myself and it does everything I want it to do at a great price.

Its a better design than many other more expensive models .

If checking instore , look for the strips hanging from shelves with products stuck to them. That is where these usualy are. You probably won't find them where the other mice are in the computing section.
In my local store they were with the mobile phones.

You don't sound very humble.

And you're completely wrong. Wireless technology isn't a replacement for wired. Wireless mice are heavier, high maintenance, less efficient, less secure and, I'd imagine, considerably less green than wired mouse. If you want to accept all those tradeoffs because the advantages matter enough for your mouse use then fine, but saying that wired mice are bad just makes you look silly.

Gamers don't like wireless mice primarily because of the responsiveness, although the weight and batteries are certainly additional factors that many dislike.

I've never understood the logic of a wireless keyboard and/or mouse for a standard desktop PC sitting on a desk with a monitor nearby - after all, how far away from the PC are you going to be that a wired keyboard and mouse won't reach? The *only* place that the wireless version makes sense is as input for a media centre PC hooked to your TV that you put in your lounge and want to surf/game/e-mail whilst on the sofa.

Wireless keyboard/mice have batteries that regularly need recharging, the mice are generally heavier because of the batteries and they're also significantly more expensive than wired equivalents. For my desktop PC, it's wired all the way!

Heavier is sometimes good, some "gaming" edition mice come with weights that you add to get the perfect feel, sensitivity vs friction etc for your gamestyle (Logitech G5 etc). Light mice do not automatically mean it's better, it's like cars, you need some weight to put that power down..

Less efficient, less secure? That makes no sense in regards to a mouse.

Less green? Possibly, although a decent mouse lasts easily 6 months+ continued use on 2 rechargeable AAA batteries, a few hours charge and it's ready for multiple more months. I have no idea where you get the impression of a daily battery change unless it's bluetooth which has now been phased out. (The MX900 BT mouse did run out of juice daily but had a charger cradle packaged. The MX/VX Nano & Revolutions last well over 6 months with no new batteries or charge at about 5-10 use every single day & high-tech ones like the MX Air last 3-4 months).

Responsiveness is a non-issue these days for wireless mice, it's very comparable to minute millisecond differences that regardless what you hear or think, do not make any real non-negligible difference in gaming. Most monitors are not capable of refresh rates fast enough to make any of these marketing claims of "fast mice" any useful. (Nor is your eyes-brain-response system by the way).

rkl - Also read above.

I'm just explaining another viewpoint. By no means does it qualify that wired mice are useless or to be phased out.

Even further, there's no excuse to trash this deal merely about personal opinions.

It's a working mouse, for peanuts. That's a good deal for many uses and indifferent people. :thumbsup:

So when's your next professional gaming tournament? I'm sure lots of people at HUKD would come along to cheer you.

Razer Mamba
Sidewinder X8

Read reviews.

FYI, I've been to many LAN tournaments in my day and bought into all the hyped and overpriced gadgets/components that mean squat. Fata!ity NIC "Gamers" card is £30 more expensive than the exact same Creative 10/100/1000 NIC product with the difference of no red gaming sticker on top. Why? Because it's "gaming edition".

"Gaming edition" memory cards are exactly the same as normal ones albeit some have differing colours for up to 50% premium. Any speed read/write differences? Nope.

I was once sucked into all this marketing BS. I would advise not to follow, including when it comes to scaring you about "millisecond lag" in mice. Load of crock.

i prefer wireless mouse as the i hate it when the cable just gets in the way...my keyboard is wireless although its useless and when it fails (not long as ive already thrown it against a wall - surprisingly works better now!) i will get a wired one
i play games so wireless mouse isnt ideal but its a trade off

not as good as wired but the mx revolution is good for a wireless mouse for games

Good price. Ideal for spare.
