Default Re: Optical Mouse

anything but reflective surface. I have it on my oak desk. Any desk should work. Just don't put it on a mirror, glass, or a high gloss surface.

Yeah, make sure the surface isn't different toned because it'll track one, then when you hit the other color, it'll skip.

I use something called a Wowpad and it works wonders. It's big, designed for optical mouses, and my mouse will just glide across the surface with ease. Works very well for gaming, too.
