MY New Mouse

mx-700-mouse.gifI've spent less than a week with it, but I already adore my new mouse. This review sums up my thoughts nicely, so I'll simply allow you to read that. It also reviews the MX-500, my mouse's corded sibling, which is a bit lighter (no batteries) and, of course, corded. I'm glad i didn't pick one up when I was thinking about it last Christmas.

Two issues have popped up. I'm actually on my second MX-700, having exchanged the first one after I noticed that the left button (regular click) wasn't always staying held. It'd mouse up and immediately mouse down (a faulty switch) when selecting text, dragging icons around, etc. Unfortunately, the replacement mouse wobbled a bit. We're talking 1/16" of an inch, maybe? Regardless, a noticeable amount, and when you use a computer as much as I do, a very noticeable amount. I unstuck and readjusted the glide pads on the bottom and all seems well now.

  1. How long does it last per charge? As the cordless mouse/keyboard genre has matured I've been tempted more and more to purchase one but have always been held back by certain shortcomings, which this one seems to have overcome for the most part.

  2. It lasts a week or more of heavy usage. And then it charges in an hour. I just put it in the cradle before I go to bed at night.

  3. What keeps me away from the rechargable is this… What do you do when you're in the middle of an important immediate task and your battery dies?

  4. Do you honestly believe that you can't remember to put your mouse in its cradle for an hour or so at least once a week???

  5. Giles Turnbull says some nice things about PulpFiction in a little ditty calledRSS: The Next Generation: At $25*, this is a good-value application that offers many new features for RSS. Treating feeds like email makes a lot of sense, especially...
