If you look past the dual-sensor hype, there’s definitely nothing wrong with the MouseMan Dual Optical, and you may well prefer it to the Explorer 3. Getting into the Dual Optical is refreshingly easy. He was too busy going blind to care about my bagels. It’s a bit slimmer than the old Explorer – which doesn’t feel as chunky as it looks, but which is still a large mouse. The Dual Optical’s five tiny feet wouldn’t be adequate to cover a screw, anyway. Which of these three would I use? Which is more than can be said for the other two mouses in this comparison.

It won’t ever replace my freeway car smacker 2 x 4 I use to fend off SUVs and rice rockets on thebut the fact that it isn’t already busted from all the slightly sticky sweets, constant drops, and sweaty palms I subject it to is really saying something. If you’ve got a version 1 or 2 Explorer and don’t have skipping problems then there’s no reason to upgrade, but you may find yourself wanting to anyway. The dual optical sensors can be made to benefit you in other ways.

The only way to tell for sure is by using both mouses. Cracking the cases If you haven’t taken the top off, you haven’t reviewed a mouse. But no right-hander is likely to be particularly annoyed by either.

Its scroll wheel’s got a subtler, less positive feel to it as well; which you prefer is a matter of taste. Now when you pick up your mouse and stare into the lasers like an idiot you can get blinded twice over!

But in my case, this was actually turned into something of use If you prefer a quiet mouse, you’ll like the MouseMan Dual Optical; its microswitches are much quieter than the Microsoft ones.

He was too busy going blind to care about my bagels. As the foggy air clears I hear you ask, “But then how is this particular optical mouse any better than the others?

All of those mouses that’re designed for fictional hands really bother me.

But, for what it’s worth, I can’t make the new Explorer skip at all, no matter how hard I try. They won’t drag, they won’t stutter, and they will forever point in any direction ordered. But the interesting part is much less complex.

Ordinary personal computer mouses were, overwhelmingly, optlcal, with a rubberised ball and little rollers that collected crud. So you have to completely de-foot the mouse to get it apart, and then fiddle with a little flat-head screwdriver or similar prodder in order to get the clips to release.
