    We tested five wired and wireless mice with the Phantom Flex 4K camera at 1000 FPS to see if wireless mice were faster than wired!

      I hate wireless mice and keyboards. But I’m also not a gamer lol I do audio and video production as well as photo editing. Maybe I should try a game out sometime

            This video was great. I thought wireless is always worse as with wire. Thank you.

                        To be honest with you, I wanna get a wireless mouse because the grand cable management, especially since my keyboard has a usb port, meaning i have more room to do whatever on my desk.

                          Wireless Controller is better than a wireless mouse as one you use for gaming and the other is a rodent

                                You still need a wired mouse if you don't want to risk an external interference, unless you have the bluetooth dongle right in front of your mouse. I mean, even in the video they placed it near the mouse in order to avoid any "unfair" interference.

                                    I ran an old logitech mouse, shits from 2006. Got a cheap mouse this year for 20 bucks, the difference was huge! I should get a fancier mouse, test it out. I have a 240hz screen btw, so I did notice it.

                                      It's a shame you guys didn't do the classic and ever popular wired 10 dollar microsoft mouse. Still, I really liked this video as it showed me something new.

                                                  I wonder how much more the latency would be on the gaming mice if using BT. Supposedly the bt reporting rate is around 7.5-11ms, so around the same ball park as the mx anywhere2?
