A new mouse


I purchased my third bluetooth mouse in a year today.  The first was a Level-One BLM-3000.    Quickly abandoned on grounds that it wasn't comfortable, had poor battery life and frequently lost receptivity - leaving me wondering whether it was time to change the batteries again, or just something wrong with the connection.  The second was a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000.  A good mouse, but recently the middle button wore out - apparently from over-use (mainly from opening browser tabs).  It still works, but only when pressed hard and long.  Today I replaced this with a Logitech V470.  It's a good looking two-tone grey and white, and is comfortable. One nice feature is that it takes regular AA batteries, rather than lower capacity AAAs.  I just hope this mouse stays with me longer than did the other two - Bluetooth mice or not cheap.
