wireless vs wired mice

Recommended Posts

I’ve used Corsair and Logitech wireless mouses for the past 3 years with no issues. As long as they have the high speed wireless connection and a good sensor there isn’t a noticeable diff IMO.

I prefer wired because lower latency. yes there are some good mice with just a tad higher latency than wired but still i prefer wired.

i have been wondering if i should get a really light wired mouse or semi light wireless mouse price cap of 80$ any ideas?

What it comes down to is how annoying do you find the wire and what other annoyances are worth having instead.  Wired mice have advantages.  They’re lighter, faster, never run out of battery, more reliable, cheaper, And are generally a lot easier to find.  TheY have one sometimes big disadvantage though: the wire.

 

wireless mice can reduce or near eliminate a lot of these.

1 weight.  Reduced annoyance.

They’ve gotten a lot lighter.  Still heavier, but they’ve gotten lighter. 


2 speed.  Reduced annoyance.  Effectively eliminated with enough money.

they used to be a lot slower.  Now the expensive ones are barely slower
 

3. Battery life. reduced annoyance.
 An annoying problem.  Got less bad with rechargeable batteries.  Some have Qi wireless chargers so if you have a special mat with a window charger in a corner you can park it on it and recharge the battery.

 

4. More reliable.  No improvement.

rechargable batteries die, wireless signals get inturrupted, bits break.  This hasn’t really gotten better.  You can still find a shit wired mouse with reliability issues in software though

 

5. Cheaper. Reduced annoyance

the problem here is not that wireless mice got cheaper so much as that wired mice got more expensive.

 

6. A lot easier to find.  No improvement

a wired mouse is attached to your computer so it can’t fall allen that far from your desk and you can always follow the cable.  This imho is one of the biggest advantages of wired mice.

 

The wire.  How annoying is it for you? That’s a personal one.  
 

What I buy: $5 wired mice.  As good as a $50 wireless mouse and I like the $45 left over.

 


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Logitech and razer wireless are so nice if you can afford them. Literally same performance as wired, very long lasting battery life and no annoying wire when you are gaming. The G305 is great and quite affordable too.

The G Pro Wireless at 80g (77 without the cover) and the Razer Viper Ultimate at 74g are still lighter than most gaming mice and pretty damn close to most ultralights.

Not barely, as fast, if not a bit faster.

It absolutely has, literally half of CS pros use the G Pro Wireless in LAN tournaments with a ton of wireless interference and I have yet to hear of anyone having issues with it. Same with the Viper Ultimate, although this isn't as widely adopted as the G Pro.

The lighter mice normally have pitiful battery and require things like expensive Qi mouse mats. 
 

They’re can be as fast if you don’t run into interference etc and faster is just ridiculous. For a start they have to go through more circuitry to be broadcast and to be received wirelessly on top of all the usual stuff the wireless mouse has to go through. Light and electricity travel so fast they’re not the limiting factor here either. 
 

I switched back to wired after have horrendous issues with a Corsair Dark Core.

define pitiful battery life? pretty sure the GPW has the same battery as my G502 which is a full 42 grams heavier.

also the G305 is fairly light and still boast a 200hr battery life

My G Pro Wireless literally lasts like a week of use while using it for 10+ hours a day and charges in an hour. I'd say that pretty good IMO.

You can find tests online that prove that they are at least as fast as wired (I think Linus has one as well). I think Logitech, with internal tests, have shown that their wireless implementation is even slightly faster than wired. As for interference, I would say that LANs have quite a lot and I have never heard of any pro having problems with their wireless mice at LANs.

With good optimization and engineering, it's not impossible.

Yes, which is why I specifically mentioned Logitech and Razer. These 2 are the only ones who have gotten it right so far.

Is that with or without lights? 
 

 

It is physically impossible for them to be faster, anything Logitech have put out would be lab made crap that in no way represents the real world. Also I remember seeing the Linus thing and poking holes in it. 
 

Depends on the location, a LAN, unless it’s massive, shouldn’t have more noise than a small household. I had no issue with a wireless mouse until I moved into a flat where there’s wireless signals bouncing all over the place and about 30

different internet hubs.

I’ll watch the video again and pick it apart for you. 
 

Depends I can see dreamhacks organising WiFi communications to minimise interference plus there aren’t multiple boxes with different wavelengths from a myriad of devices pinging everywhere, all the computers should be wired and all the spectators would either be on cellular or a few WiFi boxes that are all operating together as a mesh.

For what it's worth the only time I have ever heard of anyone having any issues with Logitech wireless is when they have their router on their desk right next to the mouse or if they have their receiver completely hidden or too far away from their mouse. As long as you have your receiver close to your mouse and don't have your router, or other devices that can introduce a lot of interference on your desk, you shouldn't have any interference issues. You're free to disagree because of your experience with Corsair wireless, but I'm just saying that Logitech doesn't have the same issues that Corsair does and this can be backed up by a quick google search.

Just want to mention that I've put a AA Energizer Lithium Battery on my G305 on August of last year and the Logitech software still says it's full battery. Okay I always leave it at Endurance Mode but I use it 8h+ a day and it's been a year already.

Personally I don't mind wire, with good quality cable, bungee, I don't think about it. But wireless mice from Logitech and Razer are top notch, better than some wired, anyone following mice tech or play competitive know this.

Re #1
so yes.  

I would also say that a mouse can be too light.  People have actually put weights in light mice to make them heavier. 

 

re: #2 speed

not sure how it is possible physics wise to do that. Might be possible that wired development totally stopped but wireless development kept going.  A wireless literally mouse requires more processing.  In apples to apples a wireless signal is just going to be slower than a wired one.  Might not be apples to apples anymore.

 

re: #4 reliability

same point as @Oswin then.  Reduce/near eliminated in some mice.  Draws same question: are they in budget?

 

re: end note (not 5)

I do game with my now 5 year old $5 mouse.  Thing is still sold but it’s a $20 mouse now.   I actually find it too sensitive, because it tends to jump around making aiming difficult.  I attribute that to my essential tremor issues and not the fault of the mouse.   Not a problem I expect other to have.

So Goes to perception. No perceptible difference.  Same issue as with SATA SSDs for gaming.  Nvme is lots faster than sata it just doesn’t matter in most or almost all situations. Saturate the port and things become equal if the same port is used.

Because wires are a big big problem in most competitive shooters. A great example of how the wire can be crippling and worth removing.  Not the only one.  There is also the whole “I just can’t frocking stand wires!” Thing which could be crippling too.

Not sure how that's relevant since the point you were making is that wireless mice are too heavy.

It actually is possible if the bottleneck is elsewhere, like the USB2.0 connection. And even if it was slower, it is only by 1-2ms which is impossible to notice and can definitely be considered as fast.

You can get a G305 for $50 or even less.

Yes, but I assume that you aren't that serious about gaming. I doubt it is too sensitive, it's probably not accurate enough TBH.
