Staples: Logitech Corded M500 Laser Mouse $15.99

Didn't see this posted yet. Doesn't seem too bad a mouse at that price. Wonder if online stock is phantom again.

"Valid online December 24, 2012 - January 4, 2013. Valid in-store starting December 26, 2012 - January 4, 2013"

Edit: Oops, I guess this is a reported boxing week deal. Please move/remove if redundant.

Thanks. I prefer to get my electronic deal info here, I cannot wade through all the crap in the boxing week subforum.

Good price! I think the lowest ever, although I was able to pm one at ME for $14.99 once.

Yeah, thinking of trying to get one locally in-store later. I checked ME and NCIX for stock for PM to post links, but both those were OOS.
I saw it @ FS+Bestbuy though, but not sure how easy it will be to PM during boxing week locally - might be worth a try for some if you don't get this.

I just ordered directly from Staples (as a filler).

Bought this a couple of days ago (on sale a while longer), it's good, a full-size mouse that fits the hand better than those mini versions. I will always use it with the wheel set to free-rolling mode which works well. You download support software from Logitech to customize the mouse setup, and they have versions for various Windows and Apple OS's, which is great (using it with Mac Mini OSX ML).

Only minor issue I have is the mouse pads on the bottom don't slide on a desk surface or pad quite as easily as I'd like, maybe they can be polished up or something to reduce the friction.

I just purchased this mouse at trinity commons, Brampton. They basically repackaged the mouse and sold it to me as brand new. So, make sure you open the box the second you buy it to see if it has been used. Good luck.

You can buy teflon feet or teflon tape to fix that. I've been "taping" my mouse for like a decade now, replacing the tape every couple months or so, which makes it glide a lot better on any surface. (who needs mouse pads?)

Good idea, thanks for that! But where would I buy Teflon Tape, do you mean the white plumbing tape used on pipe threads? There is a related industrial material called PTFE tape that is said to be very slippery. I've used transparent shipping tape (something like scotch tape), on the mouse feet and that helps a bit.
