Don't you believe it, !!!!! Any kind of gloss on the suface will affect it.
Try using a sheet of matt paper as a mouse mat.

Have you a wired mouse to try?
i agree it does matter what surface you use even with laser i use mouse mats got quite a few different surfaces i use for different things for normal surfing i use a belkin pad with a bit of grip for playing games i use a trust mat for laser thats like skating on ice so i switch the dpi settings down on the mouse.

all our wrists are different so experimenting is the best way till you get what you feel is nice my circle of movement is approx i inch does your mouse have a dpi button on it?

Ok guys, miraculously a new mouse pad seems to have solved the problem. No more sluggishness in the past 12 hours. I'm amazed. I never thought it could have been the mouse pad because it was so intermittent. I.e. it would work fine for so long then bing, sluggishness always prevailed, hence I associated it with some polling issue.. like CPU or USB or memory overload of some sort. Going to switch back to the suspect mouse pad and see if problem comes back. Stay tuned..

Good to hear the mouse is tracking better. I've also found that a regular washing of the pad can also help as tons of grease and dirt are picked up over time into the pad.

Nope. Not fixed. New battery. New mousepad. No dice. I guess I will now try another mouse. Stay tuned.

Ok. Bought a wired mouse. Problem DEFINITELY solved. Completely different mousing experience. Moves 100,000 smoother, faster, accurate, etc. Thumbs down to Logitech wireless mice. Wasted a lot of time trying to figure that out. Thanks to everyone for help

Nor mine. I have several Logitech MX 600 mice that I've been using for years on a laminate desktop surface (no pad).

Here is a list of all the new mice on logitech. Click your mouse and go get the driver if listed.


You can also go to below link and use auto detect or select your model manually if it is an older mouse.
