    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?

                                                I know you said within the Martian of error but I thought I'd point out that with the Corsair that the hammer hit the foil that wasnt in contact with the mouse first with I think could add about a millisecond look at the Corsair test closesly

                                                    I loved the school science project feel of this video. Brought back memories. And the data is very interesting. Looks like the best wireless mice can now actually match wired mice in responsiveness!

                                                            I also noticed it's the only video I can select 1440p on, so I downgraded to 1080p and it was still choppy. Anyone else?
