Only real good laser sensor is the Avago 9500, which is in the XAI and Sensei. Don't know what other mice it's in. I'm pretty sure laser mice can only track good on hard pads though.

I'm not an expert mouse user, but I've been using my G5 on the qck heavy without any problems. I always thought that laser mice were able to track on more surfaces than optical could.

However, if you are looking for "flawless" sensor, I think the only ones out there are optical/IR.

Just for the heck of it i tried my al-cheapo logitech optical desktop mice that came with the keyboard combo and it was also just as good - the size was smaller and i remembered it was quite easy to track the enemy soldiers jumping around. So what gives ? all the talk about these powerful gaming mice.....and the humble normal mice does just as good a job.....biggrin.gif

Optical can track pretty decent on any surface. Laser mice have terrible tracking on most mousepads. G5 has a horrible sensor though, don't know how you manage to use that.

Personally it is mainly the size of the mouse I find they are more imprecise short and low as Zowie mico logitech g7 and the more I find the precise movement!

I compared my accuracy and efficiency of my game in Crysis Wars with my first Logitech RX250 optical which costs only 10 dollars a laser mouse against the Razor Imperator

In the end the RX250 is 100 times more accurate in full by frag I find the sensor against the Imperator much better faster especially to 500Hz and 1000 Hz!

Basically the most important in a mouse is its size and shape and special shape of the Logitech RX250 same as the mx 300 and all the other kickass Razer Imperator mouse accuracy and efficiency level of play in my humble opinion of a harcoregamer.

Laser/optical does matter, because there current exist 0 good laser sensors and a few good optical ones. Aside from the fact laser mice (due to a smaller aperture) are more susceptible to dust and debris, the sensors are all crap.

To the guy suggesting it doesn't matter because his MX300 is awesome - really, that's because your MX300 is awesome. Possibly the best sensor ever made (I believe it has no prediction and a ridiculous failure speed).

MX300 has prediction actually. You need to bump up the polling rate though to really "unlock" its full potential.
