From what ive read about them they are faster and more accurate than the opticals.

I have one. I can't honestly say they're more responsive, or if they are it's not all that noticeable, though when I first got it, it was really fast, I guess I've just adjusted to it. The thing I like the most is it tracks on virtually any surface, from wood to cloth, so there's no need to buy those expensive mousepads for good tracking.

Heh, Computers... sozo.gif

from what i have heared...laser is dominant to optical...but not by much...again i repeat that a laser mouse will have no problem going over cloth wood, or...uh....styrofoam......

and it has a lithium ion battery for longer battery life...should charge in 4 to 5 hours and last a week or two?...charging is a snap because the reveiver is also the charger..

Try the Razer Diamondback, havent any of you heard bout these guys, specialized "lazer" mice for gaming purposes. The diamondback is their newest model, it is the best mouse ive seen. www.razerzone.com One thing, they are a bit pricey but well!!! worth it, my friend has one, and uses if for Day of Defeat, and C.S. its rocks, the diamondback has 2x the viewing as regular mice, it can see a lot.
