3200 has better tracking at it's native resolution BUT a worse lift-of-distance. For most people the 5000 is the preferred choice due to higher dpi (personally i find anything over 2500 or so utterly pointless but w/e) and lower LOD.The acceleration/jitter introduced in the 5000 is so slight that only the most sensitive users are likely to notice unless playing at the lowest possible DPI (WHICH RENDERS HIGH DPI LASER SENSORS WORTHLESS ANYWAY)).
as far as it being optical, I still fail to see what makes you think laser sensors are somehow superior. most serious gamers actually prefer optical mice. lasers have many more issues than optical and seldom have any real benefits other than higher DPI (which as I state earlier, is somewhat of a moot point IMO).
SORRY for the crappy random caps lock. wireless keyboard on this htpc is dying on me. some asshat dropped it and partially shattered it Edited by Zero4549 - 3/18/12 at 5:25pm
