Bluetooth gaming mice?
« on: May 10, 2008, 11:22:22 AM »
Now that I have a half decent laptop for gaming, I'd love to start eliminating some of the wires and peripherals that need to be plugged in.

Does anyone know if there is a decent bluetooth mouse for gaming? looking for smallest possible lag time and as many buttons as possible.

The Logitec MX1000 Bluetooth is a good choice for gaming although it's a little pricey.  I know Fujitsu has a Bluetooth version and I've got and RF version.  Both work well.

I had a bluetooth mouse once but it wasnt all that great. You could get a wireless mouse that uses a 2.4ghz frequency which is just as good though.

I have a logitech bluetooth mouse that performs great, but only 2 buttons and the scroll wheel is the problem for gaming. The reason i want bluetooth, is i have a macbook pro, so I have bluetooth built in, thus meaning one less dongle to plug in/carry around/store/lose.

I'm using the Logitech MX Revolution right now, and I have to say, the performance of this mouse might make up for the usb dongle I have to keep track of.

I have the Logitech MX1000 BT mouse....it works out but I think it is more of a general purpose mouse that a real gaming mouse.

I've been using the MX1000 also for quite some time now, battery life is good and I've had no problems with it, never seems to lag or anything

I had the MX5000 desktop (or whatever they called it) that had the MX1000 Mouse and fancy bluetooth keyboard, currently I'm just using the mouse though as the keyboard was having some issues with my barely-still-running windows installation
