Optical Computer Mice

Mouse technology simplifies navigation of websites and documents, letting those who work at computers be more efficient. Optical mice use upgrades in technology to make navigation even easier.

Optical Technology Makes Mice More Efficient

Optical technology replaces the mouse ball and track, which was the first type of technology used in mice. The optical sensor detects when the mouse is being moved and uses digital signal processing to move the cursor on the screen accordingly. This technology extends the life of a home or office mouse since the optical sensor does not gather dust or residue during use.

Stay Comfortable with Contoured Design Features

Most manufacturers create products that accommodate casual computer users and people who use computers for hours per day. Optical mouse options utilize design features to maximize comfort. The sides are contoured to fit the typical hand position and are covered with rubber to create a comfortable grip. Ambidextrous mice have contouring features that accommodate left and right hands. This feature is beneficial in an office setting since both left-handed and right-handed people may use the same computer.

Enjoy Convenient Scrolling with a Three-Button Design

In terms of functionality, computer mice include features that reduce the amount of time customers spend scrolling. Most models have a vertical scroll wheel in the center of the mouse. These wheels are sensitive to scroll speed so that users can scroll through a long document with one movement. The three-button design implemented on many optical mice makes it easy to carry out more functions without the keyboard. The left button functions as a standard button, while the right button opens up specialized menu options. The middle scroll wheel works as a third wheel when pressed. Many programs, particularly those used in business settings, are designed to function with three-button mice.

Wired and Wireless Mice Use Optical Technology

Both wired and wireless optical devices are available. Wired mice often have plug-and-play functionality, which permits users to begin working with the mouse as soon as it is plugged in. Users do not have to install additional software or drivers to use the device. Wired options also have no latency, which means that there is no delay between mouse movement and on-screen cursor movement.

Wireless options give customers the freedom to work in a variety of locations. A wireless optical mouse reduces cord clutter and minimizes the risk of tangling. It is a suitable option for those with very large computer monitors or multiple monitors since wireless mice users can navigate the entire work area without thinking about cord length. Wireless mice are typically powered by AA or AAA batteries. Assuming typical daily usage patterns, most mouse models can run on one AA or AAA battery for up to 1 year. Some models are rechargeable. You can recharge the mouse by connecting it to a computer or wall charger with a micro USB cable.

Mice that use optical technology function smoothly on a variety of surfaces. Wired and wireless options accommodate a range of customer needs. With Staples, it’s easy to compare products and find a mouse with the features that matter to you.
