In particular, the Optical hosts an ergonomic design for comfortable long-term use, three sensitivity options, and a low lift-off distance that makes it optimal for low sensitivity games because it allows the user to reset the mouse to the center without lifting it high. More importantly, the mouse provides enhanced tracking with 6.5fps and counts per inch up to 1.600.
