Hi Guys,

My old mouse is shoing some age - so time to upgrade.

As a VERY keen Counterstrike player I was wondering what people were
using.

I need fast response and probably more than the usual 2 buttons for
special actions!

Any advice welcome.

Thx,

Mike

Microsoft Intellimouse Optical (not the Explorer)
Optical is the only way to go these days, and this is the best mouse I
have ever used.
Has the usual mouse1 and mouse2 buttons, with wheel/mouse3, and 2 side
buttons mouse4 and mouse5.
I use mouse4 to select he gren, and mouse5 to select flashbang.

I use a Razer Boomslang 2000 and a 3M Precise Surface mousing pad. Yes, it
is a ball mouse and I have to clean it sometimes, but it is precise almost
beyond belief.

I am using a Logitech MX-500 on a Ratpadz gaming surface.
I can honestly say this mouse has never skipped once on me and is weighted
just perfect to give a sense of movement in your hand.

Make sure you use the PS-2 port on your PC in preference to USB and leave
the wireless stuff alone. As well as lag you will have he added weight of
the batteries to deal with.

Why? Does this perform better? I have been using USB, but have PS2
adapter that never use.

Although PS2 has lower bandwidth it has a typically higher refresh
rate than USB (sort of like a lower ping) plus PS2 is not dependant on
CPU resources like USB. In real life though there is not enough of a
difference to worry about but if you have a PS2 port and a capable
mouse you may as well use the tiny advantage

Actually the USB refreshes at 100HZ and the PS2 at 40HZ though my
logitech mouse driver lets me increase my PS2 sampling rate to 100 or
even (silly) 200HZ. There is a third party app (see download.com) that
also allows you to change the PS2 sampling rate.

The problem with USB is that it was never designed to be a low latency
interface. Unlike PS2 which has a dedicated IRQ line for the interface
USB interrupts result in hardware polling which involves checking every
USB device to see if it has pending data. The result is lag time caused
by the drivers of each USB device as you wait for each of them to
respond vis-a-vis do they or do they not have data to share.

HTH, Styvaen.
