What are the advantages and disadvantages between an optical mouse and a ball mouse?
Optical the Better Mouse The laser of the optical mouse may bounce off certain colors and shapes on a mouse pad.
- There are no disadvantages to a optical mouse. The optical mouse just works better and smoother than the ball mouse, and you never have to worry about the ball getting dirty or hanging. I would suggest getting an optical mouse and throwing the ball mouse away.

It is very cheap you dont need to keep buying batteries
The mechanical mouse depends on moving parts to move the pointer on the computer and a clean smooth surface. Over time they get worn and/or dirty impacting functionality of th…e mouse. The optical mouse is much more flexible. There are no moving parts. You can even put the mouse on your leg, table, carpet, paper without a mouse pad to use it. It uses the texture to detect motion. It will not work on a clear glass table unless there's something under it with some kind of print or texture.
Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the Mechanical mouse Optical mouse andWireless mouse for the mouse?
I would like to describe remaining advantages and disadvantages briefly. . Mechanical Mouse: . Disadvantages . performance and tracking ability depend on the surface the mo…use moves . need mouse pad or any special surface . the cursor movement looks not smoother to the end user . When you use mechanical mouse, you need to clean the dirt or debris that comes inside the mouse so that the ball and rollers are able to move freely when the mouse moves . Mechanical mouse are heavy generally. . Advantage . Low cost . Optical Mouse: . Disadvantages . Much expensive than Mechanical mouse . Mouse code is required. Physically should be connected to the computer . Advantages . Optical mice usually function trouble-free for years . Early optical mice required a special mouse pad, but today's devices can be rolled over traditional pads like a mechanical mouse as well as over almost any surface other than glass or mirror . precision of optical mice is also much greater than mechanical mice . There are no moving parts to break or otherwise cause problems . Weightless . Wireless Mouse . Disadvantage . Much expensive . battery required for some designs . Advantage . Cordless mice are more and more popular because they can be used without physically being connected to the computer, which gives a sensation of freedom. . free up desk space and elimination of mouse cord . not need special surface
Advantages: - Less moving parts = less likely to break - Easier to maintain, does not require cleaning - Higher sensitivity - Works on a wider variety of surface…s Disadvantages: - May have problems on glossy surfaces such as glass - Higher sensitivity - Many optical mouses have lights in them, which some people find annoying.
A mechanical mouse (or "ball mouse") tracks the users input by sensing the movements of a ball which rolls on the desktop surface. This is done using a pair of small whe…els at a 90 degree angle from each other which contact the mouse and are moved by the mouses movements. These movements are translated electrical signals by servos and then transmitted to the computer. An optical mouse tracks the users input by taking optical data from the desktop surface. This may consist of an optical sensor similar to the ones used in digital cameras, or may use laser diodes to detect tiny physical features of the desktop surface. Optical mouses generally have less moving parts than mechanical mouses in addition they have much higher sensitivity and are useable on almost any surface. This makes optical mouses much more popular than mechanicals, as a result the use of mechanical mouses is on the decline.
As opposed to having a proprietary bus mouse (only found in very old computer systems), a serial mouse allows you to use a standardized interface and protocol, meaning you can… easily replace the mouse if it breaks. The disadvantages of a serial mouse are: It occupies the serial port, barring it from use for other devices, such as a modem. If you only have one serial port and no internal modem, you cannot use a dial-up modem and the mouse at the same time.They are not always detected automatically or correctly by the operating system.They can't be used with many newer computers without purchasing an adapter, as newer computers often lack a serial port.They were introduced at a time when few optical (laser) mice were available. As such, you are usually limited to only ball mice, which some people do not like.They often have lower / fixed acceleration speeds, meaning it takes them longer to move across the screen or they require a larger movement of the mouse.
A mouse gives you more control that just a mouse pad. The major disadvantage associated with the use of the mouse, especially the wired type, is that it is not as …intuitive to use as other input devices like touchscreens. Mice however provide a great method of working the GUI and are relatively inexpensive.
Advantages: - Works on glossy surfaces such as glass Disadvantages: - May not work on overly soft or non-uniform surfaces - Requires frequent cleaning
Advantages: - No cord Disadvantages: - Requires batteries - Limited range / possible signal interference
Mouse: What is it? A mouse is the most common pointing device that you will come across. It enables you to control the movement and position of the on-screen cursor by m…oving it around on the desk. Advantages: You can select objects on the screen, hold the left mouse button down and drag them to where you want them. You can also access menus by pointing to them with the cursor and clicking the mouse button to select the option you want. Disadvantages: They need a flat surface to be used and they also cannot be easily used with a laptop. Hope This Helped!!
Advantages: Can be installed without any installation software. Disadvantages: They need a flat surface to be used, or else they won't function.
The mouse is the most efficient input device to use with a graphical user interface. However, working too long with a mouse can cause repetitive strain injuries.
the cursor lags more than with optical mouses
advantage it can move to man intuitive . we can rotate in x y& z direction and our convenient
A flea can feed off a mouse so that is good for the flea and bad for the mouse. A flea can also lay eggs and use the mouse to reproduce.
