We tested five wired and wireless mice with the Phantom Flex 4K camera at 1000 FPS to see if wireless mice were faster than wired!

  1. Didn't you review some jank display that could have the resolution lowered enough and you could get like 960 fps or something?

  2. 9:32
    Me with my $2000(CA) desktop setup and just have a non gaming mouse…
    Meh, this mouse is has good as other mouses. Microsoft Comfort Optical Mouse 3000

  3. I’m pretty happy with my g502 cable mouse and my g710 cable keyboard never runs out of battery in a game

  4. I've been using an MX Anywhere for the last couple years. I love that little mouse. I just replaced it with a Razer Basilisk last week for the extra buttons. We'll see if it improves my gaming.

  5. Does it matter that the impact of the hammer is slightly lifting one end of the mouse? Doesn't this increase the margin of error?

  6. I don't know about actual initial responsiveness (in which case, if that's what you based your assertion on) but there is in fact a difference between 500 and 1000 mhz polling rate. Just by feel alone while playing an fps is enough to notice the difference while aiming but you can actually see the difference with your own eyes, particularly when it comes to tracking a target. You can test this either while in game or even better in an aim training program. At 500mhz, the cursor is a bit more "floaty" and less exacting than compared to 1000mhz… which a lot of gamers prefer for shooters as it's perceived to be a bit more forgiving and smoother.

  7. To be fair the corsair mouse and finalmouse looked like the hammer was scraping along the foil before moving the mouse. I'd say they are exactly on par with logitech.

  8. Should have used rubber hammer to avoid variables from sudden mouse impact, the exact same drop angle and should test both full charged and not fully charged results.
