hey, just got an LX 8 logitech laser mouse, and it's fucking terrible when it comes to playing warcraft/starcraft....
is there a good mouse that's also the same price range($40)? Should I shell out for a logitech gaming mouse? Or just go another brand entirely?

Cordless is never the way to go when gaming...

For me, the Logitech Mx 310 has been amazing. Simply 3 top buttons, and two side buttons (one on each side) makes it really simple, but reliable. It's also quite cheap for a mouse. (~$25.00 USD)

Also, the two side buttons work well as "forward" or "backward" in a browser, or in a music player.

I've had it for ~3 years, and everything works exactly the same as when I first bought it. The only difference is that it now has some of the paint worn off.

NEVER had a problem once with it.

Here's my actual mouse, if you want to see the paint. :p

Also, I have yet to figure out what the middle button does (the one below the scroll button). It doesn't do anything, and can't be used in programmable keys/buttons, like the two side buttons can.

I had an amazing wireless mouse that had 2 side buttons, sad thing is that it was $8.
Cheapy and the left clicker broke. Wireless isn't so bad, I've had a wireless mouse for 5+ years and it still works great.

I used to use the EXACT same mouse. I tried to get a picture, but my webcam is black. I probably broke it when I took my computer to my grandma's for thanksgiving and back. It was a cheap cam anyway lol.

I stopped using it when the connection broke at the front, it would short out and play device disconnected & reconnect sound. Eventually it died. I put it back together with some duct tape and home-made solder (twisting the wires together :) ). My cousin uses it cause his ball mouse died...

Meanwhile, my MX3200 mouse and keyboard are doing excellent. Second year using them, both wireless. There is absolutely no delay, when you say "cordless is not the way to go" you are wrong. You need to use a good wireless mouse before you say that. Plus, there are no wires to get a bad connection like the old one and they don't snag on the side of your desk or things sitting on your desk. Once you go wireless you'll never go back... unless you have to.


If you want an affordable, efficient mouse/keyboard you should get this one. It comes with standard logitech software to remap keys, the only con is the touch-zoom on the left of the keyboard. It makes the text larger on websites -- you can't turn it off though... I never use it, so it's just annoying.


Also, I have yet to figure out what the middle button does (the one below the scroll button). It doesn't do anything, and can't be used in programmable keys/buttons, like the two side buttons can.
It's document flip, it's like alt+tab but retarded.

I've been using a wireless keyboard for about 1-2 years, and I hate it. The only reason I'm using it, is because it has play/pause, stop, and skip track buttons. Other than that, it's unreliable in games, and a pain when I have to move the 'router', or the keyboard.

My mouse on the other hand was cheap, and ALWAYS responds perfectly.

I think it all depends on the price for the mouse/keyboard. My keyboard was a good $30 and it sucks. (Plus it has the EVIL F-Lock button, which makes my F1 - F12 and printscreen buttons not work).

Also, my mouse's cord never get s tangled or anything like that. I don't know why you'd have that problem.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
