Logitech have finally copped some serious competition with a press release from UK mob "KeySonic" just recently which supports the release of their highly-refined 1600dpi laser mouse technology, currently implemented into three seperate models. At a said £15.00 price tag, i'd be surprised if these things dont start selling like hot cakes!
First we had the ball-based mouse, and then the optical mouse. The high-end computer peripheral manufacturer KeySonic now introduce their 1600dpi Laser Mouse; their most accurate and receptive yet. Dependable, ergonomical and glides like a dream. The level of accuracy is perfect for gaming, internet surfing and professional applications such as editing and graphic design.
The highly responsive Laser Mouse comes in three models, with 30 times more sensitivity to surface detail than standard LED optical mice and 50% more receptive than the laser mice currently on the market. Taking a total of 6700 frames per second, it converts this information into digital format which enables the mouse's precise location, speed and direction of travel to be calculated. A leap in mouse technology.

Deal of the Day details:
Offer: The Logitech MX1000 Laser Mouse is what I currently use. It's the best mouse I have ever owned. The battery lasts forever, it's rechargeable, and it's got a dock! The buttons aren't too soft or mushy like that other brand, and it not too heavy and not too light. It's pretty much the perfect mouse!
Mikhailtech take a look at Mitsumi's $15 ECM-S6102 black optical mouse. It's completely stripped down (i.e. totally hollow) but pretty good except for one major annoyance.
The first thing that jumped out at me was that sorry excuse for a wheel. Turns out this is one of those three-button mice, where the "wheel" is a button you hold up to scroll up, down to scroll down, and depress to activate/deactivate the Windows scroll feature. To me, this is the worst "feature" of the mouse. While it isn't widely used in games (although sniper zooming, inventory scrolling and up/down looking come to mind), it is a valuable thing to have. And of course it really got to me where I spend most of my computer time: Mikhailtech. I for one like to have the ability to scroll fast or scroll slow, without having to press any buttons or hold down that dinky stub and wait for it to accelerate to a slightly faster than crawling pace.More information at Mikhailtech
