laser mouse problems

I am having trouble with poor response with my new 2400dpi laser gaming
mouse. I tried a wireless Microsoft which did not seem to respond well which
I put down to the wireless connection. I bought a cyber snipa 2400dpi which
again did not work well on my desk which has a laminate surface. I then
bought a optical mat and all was ok for 2 weeks until today when I am
getting poor tracking again. When I move the mouse sometimes the pointer
does not move or lags behind and moves in jerks

Has anyone else experienced problems with these new laser mice and any
suggestions as to how to remedy?

I have a Logitech MX 1000 laser cordless mouse. I recall having some
trouble with it, but nothing consistent or recently. Maybe its
drivers, maybe it's the mousing surface, or maybe it's your
operating system's support of USB. You might want to gently clean
the optics, to make sure there's nothing obstructing the laser.

My MX 1000 works fine, but I'm not thrilled. It's big and heavy
relative to most mice. Currently I'm using a glass cutting board for
a mousepad. The (lithium-ion?) batteries do not hold a charge nearly
long enough, but that's what the charging base can be used for.
Precision and response wise, it's just fine. I use it for gaming,
the automatic power saving is no problem for me. That's for what
it's worth, they probably have changed the cordless laser mouse
design a lot by now.

Good luck and have fun.

joanne - you need to be aware that laser mice are VERY picky about the
surface that they are used on. If you have a mouse pad which says it is
specifically made for a laser mouse, IT MIGHT BE INCOMPATIBLE. The symptom
you list seems to suggest that your mouse doesn't like the surface you are
using it on. This may be counter-intuitive, but I've found that often the
cheapie optical mouse mats work best. Think five bucks or less.

Bottom line, try a different mouse mat. -Dave

Laser mouse should be matched in two categories.
One is partnered with your ISP/ find out who gives your
area the best electronics package. This may not be local.
NBC, ABC, even cinema companies may have the exact
structure link that keeps your home updated. People often
forget that the electronic field of a home is valuable. This
is a unity package that defends communities from terrors.
The signal itself is based on protection from invaders and
so is the recipe for the proper equipment for wear and
tear. That is your local production that is right and works
with the water condition that is really in action. Get the
local good product.
