Optical Mouse VS Laser Mouse. Most user love optical mice and for good reason. However recently I checked out Logitechs new Laser Mouse and in a word wow! This mouse is a vast improvement and I also noticed that for those that play games, response is better, faster and without the weirdness that at times optical mouse often do. While the mouse uses a USB connection I do recommend using the PS2 adapter as USB mice tend to utilize a high number of CPU cycles. Run your performance monitor to confirm if your USB mouse is using a high number of CPU cycles, and if while moving your mouse around you see cycles as high as 50% or more try using a PS2 adapter. While this new mouse prices at $79.00 Canadian is certainly worth the money.
