IMG Reviews Wireless Intellimouse Explorer
11:36 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

In our ongoing quest for the perfect gaming input device, IMG has reviewed Microsoft's latest mouse: the Wireless Intellimouse Explorer. No longer are you bound by that annoying "tail" that always seems to get in the way just as you have an opponent in the crosshairs. But what price do you pay for having a mouse with no cord? Here's an excerpt:

The most obvious new feature is the addition of wireless. Working in tandem with a receiver that plugs into an available USB port, the mouse and receiver can be positioned up to six feet away. And thanks to the two-channel radio frequency (donít use it on airplanes), the receiver can be placed out of sight.

Microsoft has also updated its optical technology. While most optical mice capture between 1,500 and 2,000 frames per second, the WIE snaps frames at an amazing 6,000 per second, delivering smoother and more accurate cursor movement. Microsoft also claims that this enhanced optical technology allows people to use the WIE on more surfaces than ever before. But, be forewarned, you still canít use the mouse on glassy or reflective surfaces.

For more details on this mouse and its features, follow the link below.
