I currently have some cheap thing I found at my local Kmart, it works but it's extremely light and I'm afraid my house fan is going to blow it off the desk. This comes from a company I've heard of and it looks like a great deal, too good to be true or would it be worth a buy? Otherwise, any suggestions for something in a similar price range ($35 or so, it doesn't have to be wonderful but I'd prefer it to work...)? I just need a replacement for a couple months until I can afford something good. Thanks in advance.

edit: This is what I'm replacing, the only reason I'm doing so is because the current one I have is broken quite severely (been dropped a few times, lol). If the above isn't worth the money I'll probably get another one of these since I did like it and use it for several years.

It depends on what you're using it for. As a general use mouse, I wouldn't recommend it since it only has 3 buttons (no side buttons). I've been looking at this mouse myself just to use for Starcraft. From what I've read, it's a pretty small mouse so it might not be for you if you have big hands.

I would recommend the Logitech g500 because it has a lot of features. It regularly goes on sale for about $40 so look out for it.

rking12345678: I have the Lachesis from Razer, but if the Abyssus and/or the Salmosa would have been available back when I last needed a mouse, I'd have gotten one of those instead. Go for it.

edit: the Salmosa is even cheaper since that appears to be a concern. But neither of those is a mouse which needs replacement by 'something better', IMO, unless you want features like wireless.

lightness is just a preference, all mice are light. the manufactureres themselves will put weights into them to create heft, been that way for a decade now.
you can do this yourself if you want.
my g9 gives me the option of adding/removing weights, which i like, since i like it heavy.

anythings probably better than the ms wireless low end. low end doesn't get you high polling rate or anything. the tracking on a razor is probably way better.

like my g9
your wireless would be lucky to approach 125hz.
as for wires

on the back edge of your desk, wedge it in or whatever and keep some slack on your desk and it is all good. cost...50cent
