Best Gaming Mouse Sensors

Laser, Optical, Tripe Photon Emitter, or anything else, understanding gaming mice sensor technology is very difficult and hence more difficult to decide what to choose. Here we have listed some usual foreign concepts in very easy language, to allow you to turn your focus on tailoring your gaming experience fitting your desire.

Types of Mouse Sensors

Optical LED Sensors

Optical sensor offer constant stream to tracking to detect motion relative to surface image. There are precise benefits to all this, because there isn’t any calibration done when you lift up the mouse, keeping consistent feel to movement in the gaming. But, optical sensors are more reliant on the surface because of the LED is used for tracking. We can also say that using an optical LED on your leg or couch possibly isn’t going to offer best tracking Check different mouse related tools at Tecagile for checking the mouse performance.

Laser Sensors

Designed for accuracy, laser gaming sensors can track and precisely report mouse movements on specifically all types of surfaces. Laser sensors allow higher DPI settings that translates into more precise tracking. Basically professional gamers are able to take advantages from such extreme sensitivities, in that usual times they often need to move little to aim the enemy from afar.

Single and Dual Lens

Mouse sensors usually comes with single lens in order to view laser or LED therefore mouse can track movements. Few mice have come out with 2 lenses, that conceptually are more accurate to track movements because of the depth perception, however they can lead to erratic movements when something were to obstruct any lens.

Dual lens allow independent control on X and Y axis for complete control during gaming. For instance you can decrease or increase Y axis sensitivity in order to compensate for recoil and maintain your usual horizontal movement.
