    It charged from flat to full in under 2 hours...And do you use your mouse all night all day? No, didn't think so... stick it on the charger and hey presto!

    thats the thing though, it can cope with acceleration upto 40Gs!

    IE, I've just been trying, and I CANT make it skip or jump etc or go wrong, unlike my WIRED Wheelmouse...

    Also, it doesn't go into standby mode for quite a long time...and it has NO...yes I said NO and no I'm not lying...wakeup time!

    IE its great at sniping in games ;)

    Its accuracy so far has been top notch as well....I've just checked out mouserate, and I'm getting 123 Average hz....the max of the USB port I have it plugged into.

    IE this is a cordless mouse that behaves like a cordless one, but has the advantage of being cordless.

    Its quite simply stunning

    If i was to ask whether you'd recommend getting the mx700 would i deserve a slap?

    Boomslang = v.nice
    MS Intellimouse explorer = v.nice + handy
    mx700 = slightly pricey + _____________?

    I've read a review or two on it. It does communicate at the max rate of the USB port, which means it is just as responsive as any corded mouse. I might actually get that, should my current mouse die. Plus, I like the buttonless design of the top, it's slick.

    Granted its slightly heavier than a normal mouse, but then in some ways this makes it feel like better quality.

    From what i've read, this is the mouse to have :) Hopefully im gonna get it soon to replace my optical wireless logitech, which kinda seems pants compared to my wired intellimouse.

    mx700 = Slightly pricey + wireless + V nice...
    it will beat the Intellimouse Explorer (wired). It would probably beat a boomslang too, but I've never actually used one properly...so I'm not REALLY in a position to comment.

    I tried to make it loose contact with the desk again (that thing, where if you move it up and down real fast the cursor stops moving), and I cant

    I'd need to be moving it @ faster than 1 metre a sec doing that. I'd like to see any of you try :D

    that kind of defeats the point of it being cordless. Corded mice/mouses also tend to be cheaper than the wireless versions which tends to put me off.
