Description: Type: Cordless, Optical
Image Processing: 4.7 megapixels/sec
Resolution: 800 dpi
Acceleration: 10g
Speed: 40 inches/sec

The 4.7 megapixels/sec give the mouse an amazing precision while using it. You can see every single movement of the mouse pointer according to your hand movement. The MX sensore is more than 80% more accurate than any other optical mouse nowdays.
With my experience, it works on literaly, any surface. Even a white desk of mine Smile
You dont have to worry that because it is cordless with IR system of communication, the responce to your movement will be slow. It has a technology called RF, which provides the performance of a corded USB device with in arround 2 meters from the base station.
It has 7 programable buttons. The two thumb buttons let you move forward or backward between pages. Two buttons, in front at at the back of scorlling wheel, let you scroll faster through long documents. There is even a application switch button, which allows you to switch between active programs !!
The batteries that come with the mouse usually charge for about 3 hours for full charge and then last approximatly 3 to 4 days of usage.
I see only 2 minuses in this mouse First is that it might be a bit too heave for some people. I like solid mice. And the second is that after like half a year, the solver paint 'wears' out a bit there were you keep fingers so you might consider painting it again Smile

Pros: Wireless optical, fair battery life, glides well, very accurate mousing
Cons: Poor contact point design can interfere with charging, top buttons are not in ideal locations

Picked this up about a year ago with the matching wireless keyboard for $57 (after $30 rebate). I must say the keyboard is one of the better keyboards for touch typists (has a satisfying "clickiness" reminescent of the old-school IBM keyboards).

The mouse glides easily thanks to the well-positioned pads on the bottom. The "feel" of the mouse is superb, I spend many hours at a time using it without discomfort. There are no right-side buttons, but the thumb buttons on the left are in the perfect location. I use both for forward and back web browser navigation.

Battery life if fair - the included NI-MH AA batteries last about 2-3 weeks without being recharged. A flashing red LED on the mouse itself alerts you when a couple days of battery life remain. Charging the batteries is simply a matter of placing the mouse in its base for several hours. Unfortunately, the mouse does not connect well to the pins that supply power to the mouse, so often I'll return to find that the mouse has stopped charging. Cleaning the contacts does not help, this seems to be a design flaw. That said, a coworker has the same mouse and has not experienced this problem.

My only other complaint is with the small round buttons in front of and behind the scroll wheel. These are not in an easy to reach location, so for gaming are useless. In fact, I have never used them for any application.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with this mouse. The only mouse I would consider upgrading to is the MX1000 which is way out of my price range for a mouse. Nah! If you are looking for a solid wireless mouse you won't be disappointed.
