10 dollar USB Optical PC Mouse Good Enough for Regular Users?

Cheap USB Optical Computer Mouses are worth the price. My Optical mouse only cost me 10 dollars and it is made by Nspire a generic mouse brand.

I have been using my mouse for many years.  It is also an 800 DPI mouse, so I can move my hand less, but the mouse pointer move farther with less movement from my hand.

My cheap USB mouse is just as accurate as other  entry-level USB Optical mouse I have used made by Microsoft and Logitech. Although, you can get a entry level Logitech and Microsoft mouse online for about  10 dollars as well.

A Cheap USB Mouse with a retractable USB cord is great for carrying around with your laptop if you hate using the laptops touch pad.

If you mainly use your mouse for Word Processing, spread sheets, the internet, and playing slow games like Bejeweled, mine sweeper, solitaire, etc, a cheaper USB optical mouse should be good enough for your needs.

Most generic USB mice work out of the box. All you have to do is unplug your old mouse, and plug in your new USB mouse in any USB port. You do not have to install mouse driver software, or configure your computer so your new mouse will work on your computer in many cases.

Before you buy your mouse, I recommend you read a few user reviews for the mouse by users on Amazon or other shopping review websites before you make your purchase, or try it out at a store before you make your purchase. On the internet, you can usually get good deals on Entry level optical mouse made by Microsoft, Logitech, and Belkin which are all very big companies which dominate the computer mouse industry if you don't want to take chances buying a mouse from an unknown company.

If you are a serious gamer or graphic designer on a budget, I recommend the Logitech MX 518 or better depending on how much you are willing to spend on a computer mouse.
