Logitech MX700 Cord­-less Optical Mouse

The MX700 comes with a rapid-charge base station in which you dock the mouse when you’re not using it. Logitech says a 10-minute charge keeps the mouse going all day, and six to seven hours of recharging gets you 10 days of service. But that’s optimistic — in my experience, a night’s charge netted five days of run time. The base station eliminates the need to replace standard batteries every three months.

The MX700’s true strength lies in its performance. The fast RF wireless control worked well at up to 9m from the base station (no line-of-sight positioning required). Besides the regular two left/right buttons and a scroll wheel on top, Logitech provides three sets of user-customisable buttons. Two buttons offer a unique system for continuous scrolling; two thumb-control buttons let you move forward or back through Web pages; and the Quick Switch Program Selector lets you cycle through active programs and documents.

All these functions make on-screen navigation quick and easy. The optical engine tracks at 4.7 megapixels per second — about three times as fast as most optical mice — affording smooth and precise cursor control, which can be particularly useful for graphics creation and game play. In all, a top-of-the-line wireless optical mouse offering great performance and features — but, unfortunately, it’s for right-handed users only.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
