    Well, my MS Intellimouse Explorer finally died :( .

    So I'm looking for a similar mouse to replace it. The New Intellimouse Explorer has the horrible smooth scroll wheel which I don't consider practical for games, so it'll have to be something else. I want something wired, and most importaly I want something big. I like a mouse I can fit my whole hand on, like the Explorer. Any suggestions?

    I looked at the MX 1000 but it looks a little bit expensive, plus I don't like having to change batteries (since it's wireless). Anything a little cheaper than this but of a similar physical size?

    Oh, and it needs to be availabel in the UK. Even an old style Explorer (version 2 or 3 - with the stopping scroll wheel) would be fine if anywhere still sells those?

    Here is the mouse I had, I think it is version 2:

    This thread mentions some good quality mouses to be had, although they're a tad pricey - they are meant to be very good mice.

    I, personally have one of these - which is what you used to have? I found them perfectly good for games.

    That's the smaller version, The Intellimouse rather than the Intellimouse Explorer. It's okay but smaller, and I prefer something more chunky :) .

    Anyway thanks for the link I'll have a look through that thread.

    Look at the Logitech MX500 & 510. I like it fairly well.

    After considering the thread and few other articles, the MX510 looks perfect. Thanks :) .
