Why do some laser mice work better than others?

So I have 1 wireless mouse that works terribly on certain surfaces but awesome on others, and I have a 2nd wireless mouse that works great on the opposite surfaces.

If anyone would like to be awesome and put an Amazon link... show more So I have 1 wireless mouse that works terribly on certain surfaces but awesome on others, and I have a 2nd wireless mouse that works great on the opposite surfaces.

(P.S. If anyone would like to be awesome and put an Amazon link to a good, fairly cheap wireless mouse that works with mouse-pads, that would be great.)
Thanks in advance
