Default Optical Mice!!

Is it just me, or do all optical mice suck??? Every one I've used act like fleas on crack! What is the deal? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Hah, no... Optical mice are better than ball mice, that's for sure. I got a wireless rechargable mouse with a wireless slim keyboard from Compaq and I'm very impressed by the mouse's performance! Works pretty well, I have to say.

No optical mice > Trackball. If you have a cordless Optical that is a different story for a gamer thou. I just spent $150 CDN on the Logitech G7 mouse. It is by far the best mouse on the market period. Trackball or optical alike. There is no better. This happens to be Cordless Optical. Check it out you wont regret the choice. But if you like to have a cord. The Logitech G5 may be more to your liking, It has the same features as the G7 but isnt cordless.

Trackballs are just plain weird. I tried using one in UT2004 one time... It was a disaster...

The G5 for me. That's what I want. I have the mx510 right now. But the G5 is a beast of a mouse. Opticals are good... just depends on the maker. My optical mouse, by logitech, is really nice. But the G5 is better... laser... more here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...ONTENTID=10715
