My trusty old Logitech MX700 has finally bitten the dust, so I needed a new cordless mouse to replace it. After a little searching, I came across this and the cheapest I can see is £14.99 @ PC World, which is a web exclusive.

Collected at store today, and happy with it so thought I'd post it up on here.

The LX8 Cordless Laser Mouse delivers smoother cursor control on virtually any surface. Its contoured shape with soft rubber grip gives you total comfort and control.

Cant comment, havent even heard of that one to be honest. Had a quick Google and it looks to be a gaming mouse, Im sure the more hardcore gamers will have an opinion as I havent booted a game on my PC in about 3 years since getting a 360.

I got a wireless Optical Mouse and Keyboard at Wilkos for £14.99 the pair with (single) USB adapter. Had this kit for over a month now and seems brilliiant. Wife who trained as touch typist on real typewriters says keyboard has proper layout and feel.

looks very similar to my mx600 laser mouse, if it's a good as that it'll be a great little mouse. couldnt find any dpi info on logitech website or amazon.

Good deal, voted HOT

It's just a Cordless mouse not a gaming one.

Not bad for the money although not great either. I can't get the setpoint installed in Vista and from what I've read I probably wouldn't want it on my system anyway. The side buttons are too easy to hit and have kinda forced me to adjust the way I handle the mouse, which I'm not entirely happy about..

i uninstalled setpoint, but im sure you can disable button assignment

Errr isnt there £5 del. on top of that though? Its £20 then not 15. Good mouse but misleadin info which makes it not so good. COOOLD!

Got this mouse for my laptop and to be honest, it's nothing special, just a wireless 5 button mouse which doesn't burn through batteries quickly. My only real criticism would be that the side buttons are too easily clicked.

EDIT: Also the USB receiver is about the size of a USB flash drive

And it doesn't change colour like my Belkin corded one, does.

It sounds ok but i wouldnt get one as I would stick with a gaming mouse for a few pennies more.

Only really a problem if using on a laptop though or you have no USB's on the back of your PC!

It would cost me nigh on a fiver to get to PCWorld so I'll have to hope this is still on when I finally drag my Rolf away from our house and PAST THE PUB!!!! :whistling:

EDIT: I meant to quote the USB flash drive bit. It is the day after saturday so please be lenient!?!

Can the button on the side of the mouse be programmed to do different things?

Why not pricematch at Currys where its currently £19.99....you'll get another 50p off there with the 110% price promise. Also, where I live, Currys are right next door to PC World...which makes it even easier!

I haven't found a way to do so using the default software, or if there is a way it isn't the same as my other logitech mouse. The left button is programmed to be back by default, and there's another on the right side which is forward

It would be nice to have a refresh button on the mouse, still a good deal anyway.

Good mouse, but only if you have somewhere to put the oversized and breakable receiver.

Cordless mice are fine, but I wouldn't get one if you are serious about gaming. Last thing you want when someone is shooting at you is a mouse that interrupts when you move it.

Did you bother to look at the item, or is this a generic response for any cordless mouse? The Logitech mice come with a USB memory stick sized receiver, hardly "oversized" or "breakable".
