optical&wireless mouse refresh rates

I need a new mouse, what do you say about Dexxa or Typhoon optical wireless. I`ve heard that logitech mice aren`t suitable for Quake like games, because of the low frequencies. But that is exactly for what I need a new mouse.

So, are these new optical&wireless mice any good for fragging?

I didn't know any of the wireless mice were good for that sort of thing, as generally, they're a one way transmission, so you can't change the update rate from the mouse itself. You might be able to change the update rate from the receiver to the PC, but not between the receiver and the mouse itself.

Trying to find out the update rate from the mouse to the receiver is hard work. Manufacturers don't seem to want to give that information out.

I'm a bit dissapointed with my optical/wireless mouse becuase when I put it through my KVM the wheel goes funny and it seems to be more jerky.
