    OK I'm looking for a new mouse to replace my MS Intellimouse Explorer Optical.

    I am thinking of the Intellimouse Explorer Optical Wireless, but is there a better one?

    Are there any issues with the signal from wireless devices and possible interference?

    Criteria:

    1st MUST BE OPTICAL
    2nd NICE ERGONOMIC SHAPE
    3rd WHEEL & MORE THAN 2 BUTTONS.


    TIA

    The only niggle I have with wireless mice is that they eat too many batteries :) I've never had signal problems with them though, and the same PC with the wireless mouse also has a wireless keyboard.

    I use the IBM Optical Navigator. It has an awsome conture in it's case design and feels just right in the hand although it is not cordless but does contain a wheel. Looks kinda sexy too!:p

    I use a Logitech Optical. Very nice. I didn't go with wireless. Don't want the hassle of batteries.
