    Why do wireless mice have glitchy movement?

    Why do wireless mice, or at least the 2 microsoft mice i have used.. why are they glitchy? like if you use this mouse then a wired mouse you will notice its not smooth at moving the pointer around and you can noticably see it do little jumps... is there anyway to fix this :S or is this normal for micrassoft? It isnt a hug deal but i notice small things like this, would like to fix it but again i only paid like $15 for this mouse lol, retails for like 45 so im not complaining too much, thanks!
    I sell in CAD$ unless specified otherwise.

    Where did you get it from? If you bought it from ebay or something like that they may have sold it to you like that. My Microsoft (Micrassoft as you call it) works fine. I havent had to replace the batteries yet and its been about a year. Maybe just bad luck?

    I wouldnt be suprised

    my macissoft mouse works great, I havent had to replace the batterys in about 3 months. The pointer glides as good as a wired mouse

    and from now on, I'm calling microsoft macissoft.

    Logitech MX1000 doesn't do that. At least the revision 2.

    The mouse that came with my MX duo works perfectly. The only time I have problems is when I try to use it on an irregular surface and then I don't expect it to work perfectly.

    The skippyness is the surface it's on, white, porous, or colored will all do that.

    Optical mice belong on smooth black surfaces.
