    Aren't they mostly all optical these days though (=laser) although there's some different implementations usually named either laser or optical but far as I've understood it both are laser pointers.

    Different sensors and extras (Amount of buttons, bios/firmware for setting up custom macros and lighting.) vary a bit though as does the overall build quality and support software though it seems the weight things have started to disappear a bit. :D


    EDIT: Probably not the best but. ->

    These days they use optical sensors again especially for e-sports to eliminate hardware acceleration which gives the user a 1:1 tracking experience.
