    i have a razer mamba tournament edition and it is a lazer sensor, and i have to say it is by far the most annoying thing i have ever deal with, i used to have a g502 which is an optimal sensor and i had no issues with it ever. but maybe thats just logitech vs razer there

      IHU2005IN you can put the same sensor into a wireless mouse as into a wired mouse. The issue with wireless mice is the amount of time it takes for the computer to get the information from the mouse, wired mouse have an advantage in this department but companies like Logitech are starting to make some amazing wireless technology which basically puts them on the same level as wired mice. The next issue to tackle is the battery life and battery weight. Logitech has already made an amazing sensor “The Hero Sensor” that takes up way less power so eventually wireless will become better since no wires which means no cable drag and better mobility.

      Im pretty sure that it depends on aspect ratio. Even if you are at 1080p, or 4k, as long as your aspect ratio is 16:9 you'll be fine. Not too sure though.

      You're REALLY missing out on smoother movement, and better accuracy. You're also destroying your mouse feet. If you aren't gaming, then it's not as big of a deal... of course you're going to go through a LOT of mice because your killing the lifespan of your mouse feet. If you are gaming however, you're really giving yourself quite the handicap by not using a proper mousing surface.

    i think optical mice have a lot longer lift off distance while the laser mice's sensor stops working the moment u lift it off the pad. i lift my mouse a lot and thats why i always buy laser mice.

    i had an optical mouse, sold it with my older computer and recently got a laser mouse. Let me say that i absolutely hate this laser mouse, small movements it wont pick up and its annoying as hell. the older optical mouse i had was perfect. I wrote a bad review on the amazon page and they sent me another one, lmao i dont want this garbage. Grabbing a optical mouse soon. (Btw the laser mouse has a higher dpi then the opticla one i had)

      I had a laser gaming mouse. The Asus Rog gx950.
      It was a nice mouse when I had it. I played fortnite with it so I I let it go a few months ago. I dont know. I had a good experience. But I have an optical mouse now. :)

      +sajjad Same as Logitech G500 only that range is 200 - 5700 and 5 profiles +/- buttons. Lower than 600 I never use it anywhere and max 3000 normally is set on desktop 1500-2500. Is more then ok! 10K i don't know how many people use it with windows normal 5/10 maybe with 1/10 ☺ . I set own profile for every game and I like G500.
      For playing I have from 600 - 1100 average 800
