    I have heard a lot of people complain about this mouse being pap, and when i saw the review on the first page I knew u would slate it :D it seems to be pretty poor when compared to the rest of Microsofts mouse range! The Explorer and the Intellimouse Opticals are really good, but a thumbs down for the cordless!

    Good review though, even if it was kind of negative, and that program to measure mouse refresh rate looked pretty useful for testing out mice. Just out of interest, is the Logitech optical cordless have as much variation in its scanning rate?

    :cool:

    No as stated in the review, the MS Explorer is the only mouse to date I have tested to exhibit this behaviour. :(

    Assuming your Dad dosen't do photo editing.. get the Logitech it is better and cheaper. For precision work a corded mouse is better.

    POS - Bahaha! I must of miss that in the review.

    I've always had a tendency to favour the Logitech Optical Mice since I feel that they offer the best performance and are the best in their field. Could the sporadic behavior be contributed to the wireless receiver and mouse itself. How much of a distance gap did you leave between both devices?

    less than 18". but I tested over it's full range with no difference. It may well be a supply regulation problem in the reciever hardware.
