Is there any point to spending more than $10 on a mouse? Should I just pilfer one from work?

Is there any point to spending more than $10 on a mouse? Should I just pilfer one from work? It seems like anything with two buttons, a clickable scroll wheel and an optical sensor should suffice.

      They're old HP/eMachines mice at work that are sitting at the bottom of a filing cabinet, I doubt the manager even knows that the mice are there, they were probably there since before he even got hired.

    Can you even buy a right-handed mouse for $10?

    You spend over $10 if you want high polling for smooth pointer movement and it to last longer than 1 year

        I can never tell if those type of people are poor and never tried a good mouse or are just moronic.
        Same for people that justify using over a decade old tn monitor daily.

          Black person i have owned atleast dozen expensive mice. 90% of the big name brands are shit nowadays. Logitech used to have pretty good quality mice like 15 years ago

            They use switches that are rated for higher voltage than their mice logic. They are quite easy to replace tho.

            The difference in sensors and skates is massive compared to cheap mice, especially compared to oem like hp/ lenovo

            By a massive difference i mean that
            that cheap crap is basically unusable

            Difference in sensors mean nothing in practice tho. Its all marketing crap to sell more mice for bigger cost.
            I did play cs 1.6 just as fine with mx518 and microsoft intellimouse back in early 2000s as i do with modern sensors.

            Minus the terrible angle snapping on mx518 sensor ofc. But other than that, "modern" sensors make no difference

            that says much about your skill level; none of it good. where aiming outcomes are quantified in aim trainer leaderboards, very light mice with very high polling and dpi show measurable advantages. it is common for a top 30% player to quickly become top 5% overnight if they switch from some brick MMO mouse to an ultralight one.

            Lmao. Why the frick would you use anything over 800dpi. Dpi is the biggest marketing crap ever, only morons fall for it

            2k and 144hz

            I dont see any reason to go over 800dpi. Ive been using this since about 2002 and never saw reason to go over. I have tried 1600, but dis not like it

            using the mouse's highest dpi setting and the lowest possible in-program sensitivity multiplier is the easiest and most straightforward way to optimize for subpixel accuracy. that this can have a measurable effect on a good player's aim is something that the aim trainer community has already known for about 7 years.

            A lot of cheap modern mice are waaay worse than those.
            They have a very strong acceleration that often feels random and you can't disable. They loose sensing even if you don't move very fast, if you use them below 1000dpi you can loose sensing while using a web browser and they struggle with sensing on different surfaces.

            They are uncomfortable, annoying to use and slow you down.

            seriously just get a dell, alienware, ibuypower etc mouse. they are good enough. Don't get the one from HP though. For some reason HP decided that even on their high end machines, they used the same peripherals as their low end walmart trash.

            Still better than any other mouse I've bought, bought an HP kb/mouse set and while the kb is "good enough" the mouse is excellent, could be more ergonomic, but then the price jumps from 5 to 50 so no thanks. It's also better than the $25 gayming mouse I bought, had to change the switches from my old broken mouse because they were double clicking in the first couple months, also didn't work with a hub, had to use a native port. All in all the cheaper mice are better in the low to mid range but they get beat in the upper echelons thereafter (>$75)

    Yeah, for a better censor that can keep up if you play fast paced games. Otherwise, no, not really.

    Weird. Also maybe you are using your mouse wrong, or it's an Apple product that actively tries to make the user to use it wrong so they can charge you for another.
