Easy, they have lights.

Let's define a "Gaming Mouse" first, as it is just a nice-sounding marketing term:

- It has extra buttons
- It might have some lights
- It might have a customizable shape
At this point, if it has these three things there's a good chance it is relatively heavy (150g or more).
- A decent sensor (only roughly 20% of gaming mice actually possess this quality)
- It looks good.

There are so many options on the mice market that you can pick and choose from a long list of features which ones you want. There's no set of criteria for a gaming mouse, it's just a marketing term. Thus, "gaming mice" aren't inherently superior. So just find a mouse that works for you.

More buttons, often more ergonomic, and higher DPI also means more accuracy.
If you lower sensitivity with a high DPI mouse then it is far more accurate.

Lol someone actually thinks that laser mice are better than optical.

I guess all those Pro Counterstrike players got it wrong eh?

If a laser mouse has higher dpi that means...
You would have to travel / move your mouse at more dpi than regular mouse , which takes more time to get there. In theory because of higher dpi you would have to move your mouse more precisely to the same spot.

Plain and simple it's because Laser Mice are better than Optical Mice.


My G400s disagrees with that.


Facts are facts.

7. Optical vs Laser Mouse: User Experience - Optical mouse has definitely proved itself as a much improved version over the mechanical mouse. However, it cannot take down the supremacy that laser mouse has established in terms of user experience. As the screen for the computer sizes up to 17inches and even larger sizes, it is desired that the mouse gives a good DPI. Here, Laser mice are always preferred than the simple optical ones. Also, laser mice are popular among gamers for their high precision and added hardware feature of extra buttons.

Lol, my monitor's 27" 1080p and I only need to move my optical mouse 2 inches to go from the left side of the screen to the right. And that's on medium sensitivity

That poorly-written article contains no facts, my good sir.

Oh god the Optical vs Laser debate again...

Only ever used a couple optical mice, but all told the difference between a decent optical and a decent laser mouse wasn't a huge deal, IMO. Just as well off picking the mouse that is more comfortable or feels better in practice. >_>
