For example, if my mouse was to go out (its been acting up the past few days) I would probably buy a cheap $15-20 one from Walmart even though I really want one of those gaming mice. Its all about a balance between what you can realistically spend & what you want or need.
    Okay, that is right. But 20$ for a mouse isn't cheap really.

    Walmart.com should have a nice selection of various mouse controllers to choose from, maybe even something wireless for around $20. No reason you should have to pay more than $10 for corded.

    For U.S., $20 is about average for any kind of decent quality mouse. I pay easy $12 for new corded mouse from Walmart.com or Amazon and usually it doesn't last for more than a month before the cord breaks or some other dumb thing happens to it.

    A wireless mouse is around $20, just over and probably a much better investment for me, though not super cheap as you mentioned, cause my wires do break a lot and get heavy usage. So that's probably the way i'll go next time.

    What? No way! That is actually awesome. Here the cheap electronics are crap. They're manufactured to fall apart in short time so the consumer has to buy more. It's just that way. I'm not saying WE are the ones manufacturing these electronics, just we are importing and buying them.

    It's especially expensive for anyone who uses their electronics constantly, like me. I run through mouse and keyboards and earphones constantly. I wanna buy quality next time and see if that takes me further. I'm always hearing that Skull Candy is good for earphones. Will probably go for wireless mouse next time too. That should cut down on mouse wear. Can't figure out how to make my keyboard last longer though. Till now, i've just figured they are cheap enough to replace. But if i'm replacing electronics monthly (at least one item), that's not so cheap.

    Well, I bought my genius Ergo 555 mouse for 25€ but that mouse is cool for me. And what is most important it is old almost 2 years.

    I actually priced computer mice the other week, since mine started acting up, and the cheapest, corded mouse was $14.97 at both Walmart & Walmart.com. I'm not sure if it's the part of the country I'm in (Texas panhandle) or what, but that's what it'll cost me to get mine replaced. I don't even want to try going wireless because my kids would run off with the mouse, they'd probably think it was something for them to play with.
