Do you like any of the two-button mice out there? What are their pros and cons? I use a 7500.

The XLR8 two-button, scrolling, USB mouse is great!

So I have heard. But how complex and costly is it to make it work with a 7500?

Is the "¬Ötwo-button, scrolling, USB mouse" you mention the one on XLR8's web site? That one, called the "Point & Scroll" mouse, requires a USB hub and OS 8.6.

the Point & Scroll Mouse does not require a hub. For your 7500 the best bet would be the Performance Package. This includes the Point & Scroll Mouse AND our Dual Port USB PCI card. Pop that in and you not only have the best non-optical mouse you can get, but are also ready to dig into the world of USB toys. I honestly never use my serial ports anymore. I've become a USB nut.

The Gurus stock all our stuff. Feel free to drop me a line or post here with any questions.

I wholeheartedly concur. I've been using my XLR8 Point and Scroll with a DualPort card for two years now, and it has rocked flawlessly. I feel like a tailless lizard without it, and using my brother's G3 was so annoying I bought him one for Christmas last year. He swore an oath of fealty to both me and Darin, so you get the picture.

i'll second that emotion. been using the point and scroll critter for over 6 months and it's worked flawlessly. no conflicts yet either.

I have an XLR8 Point and Scroll mice on our 7300 (hooked through the DualPort USB PCI card) and it's pretty nice. Also have a MacAlly clone of that one hooked up to our G4. I'm using a Kensington Orbit on my PB - the Orbit is pretty slick. I don't use any of the MouseWorks software though - does pretty funky things to my machine.
