A computer mouse is a peripheral device, without which it is hardly possible to work comfortably on a laptop, computer or even a tablet. This is a very convenient tool for managing the device, which, if necessary, can even replace the keyboard. Many people do not perceive this device as something special, so they get the first mouse they come across and start using it. This approach is fundamentally wrong, since a high-quality device will help you complete any job much faster.
The most advanced devices today are laser mice. Their main distinguishing quality in comparison with optical products is the complete absence of backlighting and more active energy consumption. Wireless devices of this type hold the signal quite well, have a beam resolution up to 12,000 dpi, so the cursor will move much more accurately over the display surface.
It is worth noting that a laser mouse cannot always correctly recognize glossy, polished or glass surfaces, so it is unlikely that you can do without a rug. The resolution of the laser mouse can be adjusted. For example, if there is no need for high precision movement of the manipulator, then you can lower this parameter – this will prevent the cursor from jerking.
Our ranking of the best laser mice in 2020 contains the most popular models among users. We tried to include in the review devices with the best price-quality ratio, so that each of our readers can choose the most suitable product for themselves. When choosing models, we also relied on user reviews so that low-quality products did not inadvertently get into the article.
