I use the microsoft explorer 3.0 optical mouse...100 times better for gaming...it samples at some ridiculous rate of thousands per second and never skips a beat...

it's either 2000 or 3000 unless that's a newer mouse than the one I read about :) games need about 5000 scans/sec to allow for those quick maneuvers I think (according to what info I've seen anyway :p)

I HAVE THE LOGITECH DUAL SENSOR MOUSE AND IT IS MEASURED THE SAME AS A SCANNER AS IN DPI.
THE LOGITECH MODEL THAT BEAT MICROSOFTS MOUSE OF THE YEAR COMES WITH A 300DPI SCAN,WHICH IS SAID TO BE OKAY FOR MOST GAMES BUT NOT FOR UNREAL OR QUAKE BECAUSE THE RESPONSE IS NOT FAST ENOUGH.
NOT SO IN MY CASE AS I HAVE THE MODEL ABOVE THIS WITH THE WORLD FIRST 600DPI SCAN,BUT THE DOWNSIDE IS IT ONLY COMES IN A KIT WITH THE LOGITECH CORDLESS KEYBOARD.

Just to let you know, any cordless mice wont really benefit from this as they will only refresh at the same frequency as the cordless transmission signal. This is certainly true for the Logitech Cordless Desktop, I am not sure if any of this has been changed in more recent models.

I've also got an MS explorer intellimouse, blows the old ball mouse out the water.

As for the refresh, its fine, JediKnight2 no proplems moving or manouvering, same with Max Payne, Quake, and many others. I hink some one is having a piss take, optical and USB are better than PS/2 and thats FACT.

USB is alot faster than 12kbps. It's somewhere over 1Mbps anyway.

reply to Zedric

Zedric usb1.1 which is the old usb we mostly have built into our motherboards only tranfers at 12KBPS where as the new usb 2.0 tranfers at 480KBPS and Firewire also known as( E1329 OR SOMETHING) CAN MAANGE 400kbps.
Remember these firgure will be different if printed in BITS rather than BYTES.
Im sure if you go to any website concerning US

USB 1.1=12 Mbps=1.5 MB/s

This means that USB 1.1's speed is 12 Mbps or Mega-bits per second, one megabit is equal to one eighth of a mega-byte. Therefore, 12 Mega-bits per second is equal to 1.5 Mega-bytes per second.

I got a Razer Boomslang 2000 and i can say, this is the best mouse for online gaming. It is so sensible that you can do fast moves and still have a fine movement. I love this mouse, but it has some manufactured problems.

http://razer.tigga.org

This is the best site for information about the Boomslang. Everyone who wants to buy a Boomslang should read the forums how to fix the errors, that the mouse often has when you buy it.

Actually, PS/2 is faster than USB, as for where to get a Boomslang in the UK, I don't know, just look online.
