IOGEAR's new Laser Travel Mouse (the vanguard product in the company's new Laser 1600 Series) is an excellent tool for mobile professionals, gamers, and desktop users. This new IOGEAR mouse uses VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) as the light source, which provides 30x more tracking power than mice using an optical sensor. VCSEL allows the mouse to work on virtually any surface, even glass, and provides an extremely high resolution of 1600dpi, substantially reducing the amount of injury-producing hand and arm movement. IOGEAR's Laser Travel Mouse is USB ready, Plug-n-Play, and Hot Pluggable. The retractable cable cuts down cable glut around your laptop, and the convenient carrying pouch protects the mouse while on the road. It is also backed by IOGEAR's 3 Year Limited Warranty.
