Well I got the Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer yesterday for Christmas and I must say it is really good. It's optical, so no mouse ball (meaning no need to clean the mouse). The wheel ball works more fluidly than my old Intellimouse and there are "Back" and "Forward" buttons by the thumb that allow for quick and easy Internet navigation. I highly recommend it. Plus the Intellimouse Explorer looks so cool, with its silver design and red lights.

I have the Logitech cordless, optical, scrolling, 'thumb-ball' mouse. It's awesome!!! It takes a little while to get used to using your thumb instead of moving the mouse, but the bonus is you don't even have to have the mouse sitting on anything to use it. Sometimes I kick back and just rest it on my knee to use it. It's a little high, but well worth it!!!!!!!!

I too have the intellimouse explorer by Microsoft and it is cool. It delivers on the fact that its suppost to be comfortable to hold. Also, I like the two buttons on the left side, which I use for copy and paste.

For 50-60, it might seem high, but for an awesome product that you'll always use if you're browsing the net, its worth it.

Well, you could try eBay, but who knows what shipping will be.

Why do you live in Japan?

Does anyone have the IntelliMouse Optical? It looks similar to the Explorer but has extra buttons on each side instead of both on one side like the Explorer. I too am looking to upgrade, but I am not sure which of these 2 to go for. Any suggestions?

Didn't like the Microsoft optical because it's not symmetrical so it can only be used comfortably in one hand and I like to use it in either hand so I got the Logitech optical.
Was going to get cordless but after reading that it's not made for gaming because of slower response time I didn't.

Well, some eBay sellers will ship overseas; the problem is when international bidders can't pay using the conventional payment services that U.S. bidders can.

If you are willing to pay shipping and have a quick way of paying, then they'll ship to you. You just have to make sure you can pay quickly and that they know you're an international bidder; otherwise, they'll get extremely pissed since they know you might have a tough time paying.

I know this because I got ****ed over by some ***hole who couldn't pay me.
