Hi, i have been using a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 for a little over a year now, and the rubber grips along the sides have recently begun to make my hands feel sticky after awhile. Why is this? I have tried cleaning it using a couple different methods, but the problem keeps coming back over time.

I was wondering if someone could recommend a good mouse that does not have the same rubbery-like qualities? I am looking for something that is wireless, and is somewhat ergonomic to the left-handed user.

Thanks :P

Hi, In your case I suggest going to a local store where you can try out the mouses feel. Mice and keyboards are one area where it is important put hands on it. Or you could do what I do and use the touchpad. Even my Wireless Keyboard/mouse combo is a laptop type keyboard with a touchpad.

Just for the heck of it, Have you tried complaining to Microsoft about the mouse? Maybe they had a bad batch.
Microsoft might make you happy with a different model. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

Bad batches of things happen. I know Toshiba and HP both extended the warranty on some laptops for a year. And on the Random password being set Toshiba extended it longer.
The HP was video problems, The Toshiba L/Ts were for the DC in jack pushing in and the bios password problems. Both of those are now expired of course.

Good Luck
Roger

Hi, I may not have been clear. It is just a laptop size keyboard with a laptop touchpad mounted below it. I use it for regular things when I'm sitting in the recliner. The computer is hooked up to the HDTV as its monitor. For normal Internet browsing and things that is more than good enough. I also have a Logitech Wireless Mouse that I grab for use where a Mouse works better.

I keep a old record album next to the recliner and when I need the mouse I use the record as a mouse surface.

I like the small keyboard as I can hold it in one hand and use the other to type or use the touchpad for most things.

This one is the size and shape of what I use http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823191008
Since I don't recall what one I use at home & I'm away I can't be more specific.

This one is a bit fancier. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823653004

Using the record album as a mouse pad is very devious!! :woot:

Ah, I see now. Yeah, the laptop I am using already has a keyboard/touchpad like those two, but that second keyboard (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16823653004) is quite amazing! It's too bad they are not shipped like that in the first place!!

Thanks for sharing your ideas, I do appreciate them.
