Quote:I know what you mean, I think. A few days ago I bought my first laser mouse after having used only mechanical (Logitech Pilot), and optical mice (MS Basic Optical Mouse 1.0, WMO 3.0, and Logitech MX300): Razer Taipan. First thing I noticed was the different behavior of the cursor on the desktop. It felt somehow "smoother", but at the same time "unconnected". With ball and optical mice I experience a more direct feel, while laser feels somehow "unconnected" in some way. It's smooth no doubt about that and very precise, but the way the cursor moves around it's like there's yet another layer between me and its moving around. Hard to express.
more smooth and almost feel artificial
But maybe it's all just imagination because something is different, (i.e. the mouse) and humans - being the creatures of habit they are - think a whole lot has changed, while in fact it's the same Then again, when using my Abyssus or Logitech M-UV69 at work, I'm back with that "old" feeling.
