Wireless Laser Mouse

Everybody talks much more about differences between Intel and AMD, between MAC and PC, but almost no one talks about differences among mice. Mice are incredibly important for user comfort. Optical or not, cordless or not – you’ll work faster and with less stress with a better mouse. Currently, there is a further feature to watch out – if it’s a wireless laser mouse or not.

The wireless laser mice have not a simple laser built-in, but a HD (High Definition) laser. That means a higher dpi (dots per inch). Most people have heard about dpi in the context of monitors and pictures. However, dpi is important for everything relating to images. And believe it or not, an optical mouse is just processing pictures. It takes pictures of the ground below it, be it a mouse pad or a simple table. More precise pictures mean a less sloppy mouse, easy of making small movements and overall better user experience.

Just think of it as a sharper razor. The sharper the razor, the better is the cut. Currently, wireless laser mice have a resolution of 1,000 dpi. That’s amazing if you need to work in tight spaces and can only move a couple of inches. It’s also the ideal resolution if you are working upon an irregular surface like a table at a restaurant. This mouse was developed with mobile users in mind.

Another important technical specification that makes your life easier is its amazing number of frames per second. Again, in the case of frames per second, we automatically think about pictures. Since, as said above, optical mice process pictures of the surface below them, the rate of frames per second makes perfectly sense. The rate of the wireless laser mount is currently 6,000 frames per second. It allows you to make even the slightness retouching of a picture.

Normally, you should choose a model with AA alkaline batteries, that can last for several months.

The claim that these mouses can work on every surface is not exaggerated. There are a couple of exceptions to this. It cannot work upon a mirror or upon high-gloss paper. However, who wants to work upon these surfaces?

The wireless mouse communicates with the processor by using Bluetooth technology. How far away you can be ranges from a couple of feet to clear across the room but most people will use it only within a few feet of the actual computer. While the first wireless mouse was developed in the early 80s, they were no way as precise as the current wireless laser mice that you can purchase today.

A wireless laser mouse has another advantage that you don’t often think of when purchasing but it’s far easier to maintain and keep clean than the old trackball mice. With the old technology, dust and debris got inside the device and gummed up the works. You had to remove the ball and clean it and inside the mouse. Wireless laser mice have no openings for dust to enter so a simple wipe with a damp cloth on occasion is all that is needed.
