    I want a blue led optical mouse.
    I have the MS optical mouse and was wondering if anyone has hand on expereince or can guide me to a tutorial.

    Will the blue LED work and be bright enough??

    I can also add (from experience) that this doesn't work very well on the Intellimouse Explorer.

    It'll work ok on the optical lens, however the LED at the back which gives the very cool red glow is obscured totally by the red plastic.

    I've seen said Logitech mouse at a lan before. It looked really good, and all in all I was pretty impressed with it. If i didnt have my Explorer already, I'd go for it definatly :)

    My m8s got the logitech one whereas I went for the M$ one. IMHO despite not being blue :( the intellimouse is better. The logitech has this really gay rumble back thing going on that makes it vibrate as you go over buttons, links or whatever which sounds Ok but is actually really annoying, he may have just have it set up to do that for everything though. Plus the build quality isnt as nice either, the M$ feels like it would survive a 100ft drop whereas I couldn't say the same of his logi! Its also worth bearing in mind that in both cases the amount of light you actually see is very little although I still want mine to be blue!!!:D
