I think the Logitech MX700 is a great mouse. Very responsive and works with PC and Mac both.

Larry, Make sure you are not too close to the receiver. If you read the instructions they probably recommend a minimun distance. I use a Microsoft and sometimes I get the same problem. I have cats and they siill find the cord even though it is hidden. Move it a little further away and then try it. It might have been moved for some reason.

Jerry(always have cat problems, too bad they are not edible)

As half the people said... I would definitely go with the Logitech MX Duo. They work perfect, with no lag. I have the Logitech cordless MouseMan Optical mouse on a different computer and it uses batteries like no other. The MX Duo lets you charge the mouse when you're not using it. It's an amazing deal and works perfect!

Larry, check your batteries. They could be real low and light is not blinking. I had a battery problem due to leaving the mouse off the recharging station while I away on vacation. The batteries were so low that the recharger station wouldn't charge them. I had to recharge them in my MaHa battery charger that I use for my digital camera. Normal AAs will work for a few weeks.

thanks everyone...

I think the problem was "moving" the base.
as it no longer has issues

Note: I did not move it much... only like 8 inches... pretty weird stuff

Larry glad ya got it working smoothly. Question: How the heck did you get the both the k-board and mousey for such a low price? Is it the MX700 AND the mouse you bought? Do you have a linky by chance? I've been 'jonsing' for the MX700 for several months... i was given the keyboard last year as a gift but don't have the base for it.

I have never had battery issues with my Logitech MX Duo. I use the computer for hours at a time and have never had the batteries go dead, of course I do put the mouse back on the charging station overnight. The key board has been going strong for 8 months on its' original batteries. I tried regular AA batteries in the mouse once, and they lasted for over a month with daily use. So no battery issues here...
