Now down to £49.99. I delayed getting mine, because my friend has the same one and I have been using it to see if I like it - results! I like it a lot! So I'm now getting on at the reduced price of £49.99. Bargain!

Can you charge the mouse?

oooh nice!

Yes - and it comes with a docking station which is really handy. I've been looking for a wireless set for a while and I've decided to go for this one. I'm collecting it at the local store, and I get 3% back from quidco too.

I'm a happy bunny!

I'm gonna do exactly the same...cheers!!!

I've been buying like mad recently and I love it!

Spend spend spend! I just can't help myself!

Oh sugar! I've made a silly mistake! I've just taken this out of the box and realised that what I thought was the docking station was just the transmitter! Sorry boxblu!

I'll amend the above post. Apologies for my wee mistake!

No problem emma. You say it doesn't come with a dock so does that mean the mouse needs new batteries each time or are they rechargable?

Cheers

It comes with a couple of normal duracell/energizer batteries to use to start with. But I have my own rechargeable batteries to pop into it. I have plenty of AA rechargeable batteries, and I always have spares for when one set runs out. I used it all last night - I really like the laser mouse, it's a pleasure to use. When you use the PC as much as I do, it's nice to have good equipment.

One drawback my friend mentioned - the mouse wheel is smooth rolling - it doesn't have that little click you can feel under your finger when it's going up and down. He said this might be a problem for gamers - when you are scrolling through weapons in a game, you can't feel the definite click when you change weapons. I haven't tried it out in any games yet though. But I'm really happy with it so far.

I never thought I'd be spending £50 on a keyboard and mouse - but when you have spent £800 on the base unit of your computer, good peripherals are a "must".

Doh! and Double Doh! I'm a sucker for technology and bought myself a brand new Logitech Bluetooth and Media wireless and optical mouse, and now you put this up!! :x

Don't worry, Logitech are excellent as well. Although I must say my laser mouse is excellent.

The keyboard has transparent keys, so I'm thinking of popping them all out, and putting in a backlights under the keys!!! Class!

I actually have this mouse at the mo you see & i really love it.

I did however think i might use the wireless keyboard and give the other mouse to my gf. Although like you emma, i like things to look good so having a nice matching silver keyboard and mouse to go with my wee baby (see below) appealed to me. Although i may just keep the keyboard coz i like having a dock for my mouse. How are you gonna put lights under the keys? I wanna do that too a nice blue one to match my machine.

You can pop the keys out one by one (carefully I might add), them you get a bendy light, like a wire, that can go under the keys. Or you can get LEDs that go in - I've seen these in Maplin, I'm not certain what they are called... but I'm going to try it out!

Good idea. We should post the results

Will do! Might not be for a few weeks though - when I get the chance to do it.
