All of this is --precisely-- the reason I switched to an optical mouse, and I have never regretted it. I have absolutely no problems with it, unlike some of the others. In particular, when I move the mouse, the cursor reacts immediately, whether the motion is fast or slow. Haven't tried it on games, but I don't think it would be a problem there.

It's a Logitech USB mouse with a PS/2 adapter. No @#$%$#^% way am I going to hang a 9600 baud device off a multi- megabit USB port!! :-)
