    Hi Again,
    So I've been looking for a new mouse and in doing so came up with a list of criteria that I'd personally like. Seems only to be a few of them out there but I thought I'd ask what you thought of the choices and see if you can think of any alternatives.

    The Main Criteria.

    Wireless
    Rechargeable

    The Other stuff.

    Able to work on any surface including glass.
    Docking Station for charging that can double as receiver, Or USB cable rechargable.
    Ergonomic (i like being comfortable)

    The Contenders

    GIGABYTE Aivia M8600 http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages/gigabyte_aivia_m8600_wireless_macro_gaming_mouse_review,4.html

    I have an older MX1000 and it's been really good, only recently the battery begun to run out. Imported a new one from Hong Kong and back in business again. Like the way all the buttons are well placed around the mouse and these can be programmed for specific button pushes. Very useful to throw the odd grenade or take cover in BF3!

    There are various Logitech mice where I work as a cleaner ( architects office- rich gits ); by far the MX revolution is the nicest mouse I've ever seen or held, fits like a glove and has a nicely arched back, not 'flat' like a lot of mice..

    *no one around, fondles mice...*

    Shame it's so expensive, but I suppose it depends on what features you like and your budget really ( bigger shame the Verbitim Ergo mouse takes ordinary batts, but a couple rechargable AAA will last forever and can be charged overnight once in a while- think I'll get one of them myself as it's a dople-ganger for the MX revolution, just a couple less buttons that I wouldn't use regardless )...

    Thats cause it is!

    Just a shame that they dont make it any more! Thats why I went for the Performance MX.

    Once you have used the scroll wheel with the resistance off you will wonder how you ever put up with a normal scroll wheel before.

    I have the MSx8 and its a great mouse. It tracks well on any surface that I have tried it on although I am not sure if it works on glass. It fits my hand well and the buttons are well placed. The puck that comes with it has some spare mouse feet/pad thingies. Over all it well worht the money. I got mine form Amazon for a bargin price earlier this year.

    Another +1 to the MX revolution which is better than the performance in my opinion. Though your 'must work on glass' criteria narrows it down a bit. Also it has seperate receiver and charger.

    These ones have 'Darkfield' tracking which works on glass

    You haven't mentioned the Logtiech G700! I have an original MX Revolution at work and a G700 at home. I will be swapping the MX for another G700 when it dies. Such a good mouse for gaming and work!
