IMG Reviews Microsoft's IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0
1:09 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review by Jason Sims of Microsoft's IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0. Here's a snippet from the review:

Microsoft's new line of optical mice features the latest revision of their IntelliEye technology, which has been significantly improved since its debut. Instead of 1500 snapshots per second, the optical sensor now takes 6000. Along with this comes greater precision, and more importantly, a much higher maximum tracking speed. As an owner of two original IntelliMouse Explorers, and a gamer, the first thing I did after I plugged in this new mouse was try out the most violent mouse movements I could muster. It never skipped a beat. It would seem they've got that problem licked.

Another bonus of the higher resolution tracking is that the mouse now works flawlessly on my desk. The original IntelliMouse Explorer had some trouble with the grains in the wood on my desk. I don't know exactly what caused it, but once in awhile the mouse cursor would sort of "stutter" a bit, which caused me no end of frustration when doing any kind of work that requires precision, such as illustration or editing graphics. This problem is gone too.

Be sure to check out the rest of our review.
