Looking for some couch setup advice.
« on: 07:42 PM - 02/16/17 »
I know we spoke of this before but it's now 2017 and someone might have a better setup that others beside myself might like to try. I just recently moved my game-room from my basement to an upstairs room. I am looking for a good device that would allow me to use my mouse on the couch. I play with the G502 and Sony Nav (wired). What is the longest cable anyone has successfully used with a Sony Nav wired, the G502 cable is already long enough. I will be sitting about 6-10 feet away from the TV.

Thank You in advance.

USB maximum segment length is 15ft. I seen people on here talking about setups that traverse even bigger distances. Hopefully one can comment with advise.

6-10 feet should be no issue unless your devices are very power hungry

if you want to make sure everything runs smoothly you can go for a cable with external power supply, that way you can pretty much cover any distance in your house that you want to :)



alternatively theres the new logitech g403 wireless which right now is the best wireless mouse you can get
flawless sensor, no latency over wireless and a fairly light weigt for a wireless mouse
together with eg a logitech wireless keyboard you could go fully wireless
(plus a wireless headset eg)
