He compares the click registration delay for various mice, using the Logitech G300 as a reference (that's why faster mice have negative values).


I'd like to see more mice tested like this and I'd also like to know what makes some mice slower than others. Hopefully manufacturers will start paying more attention to this.



And this is from an older test by sousu, which includes some other mice:

(more info here: http://sousuch.web.fc2.com/DIY/mouse_latency/index.html)



----
At the bottom of this page you can find another click latency test, done using a different method (bumping two mice together -- see the Addendum for details).







----
Addendum:

Anyone who wants to directly compare two mice in a simple way, can use "Mouse Shooting Speed Test" (or "Mouse Click Response Speed Testing Software"), downloadable from here.

Using it is pretty straight forward: bump LMB against RMB of the other mouse.
Note that the left mouse button of either mouse is A and the right mouse button of either mouse is B. So when you switch the mice bumping by L/R buttons, the winner will change from A to B or vice versa (assuming one mouse is always faster than the other with both buttons).

For a more accurate test you should bump the mice at high speed. But use some common sense if you don't want to break something. wink.gif
Also the accuracy of the test might depend on your specific system (USB ports, software, ...).

hmm interesting,. i wonder how the original mx518 fits in. i would assume it should be close to the g400 on that chart?

Anyone can do this test and compare a set of mice to a chosen reference mouse using Mouse Shooting Speed Test. Just run the program and follow the on-screen instructions. More information can be found in this review.

Why the ADNS-3090 sensor based mice do so bad on this test? What does this test even calculate?

This test has a timer, comparing the delay between left click and right click. The idea is that you bump the left click of one mouse into the right click of the other, but this guy wired both mice to the same switch.

and what is causing the said delay difference between the mice? Has it got anything to do with sensor or other inner hardware?

This is an amazingly bad way to test response time because the resistance of the button/shell won't be the same for both mice (it would still be BS regardless), one mouse button HAS to go down first (the one with least resistance) and that's not relevant.

Complacency to mediocrity will be the downfall of us all.

That's why the guy who made this article wired both mice to the same switch.

looks like logitech G-series FTW. I wonder how my mouse, the G700 fits in since it's not listed.

This article was linked in conjunction with the mouse bumping test thread =/
