Mice: Laser vs Optical


Junior Member
Sorry to make a new thread dedicated to this but could use the advice. Mice. Obviously it needs to be comfortable etc, but hardware wise; do I go laser or optical? Do I take onto consideration the DPI/CPI? Gaming mouse or non-gaming?


Staff member
Go into pcworld or similar and try the mouse on for size, unless you're gaming you won't notice any real difference in performance.

And what was wrong with the other mouse thread?


Junior Member
Oh nothing, I just figured it'd be easier ask more about specifics of the hardware in a new thread instead of keeping it all in the other one. Yeah went there the other day, tried a few for size, looked online for lower prices, then see reviews putting me off due to performance.
