Default Mouse responsiveness - 03-08-2009, 08:17 PM

Does anyone here have direct experience comparing Bluetooth and Logitech proprietary wireless mice? I have the standard logitech on my big inspiron and it is very responsive (no delay after sitting idle for a while) and the batteries last a long time. I'm considering a BT mouse for my mini-9, but have concerns about time-lag after idling. Also, how is the battery consumption.

Thanks.

I have a Microsoft BT mouse and various Logitech non-BT wireless mice. There is sometimes a lag with the BT mouse after a long idle time but it is rarely an issue for me. It sure is convenient not to have to use a dongle, but for my Mini I use the Logitech VX Nano and I just leave the receiver in the right side port and forget it.

Thanks. How is the battery life for the BT mouse?

For the MS mouse I have (Wireless Presenter 8000) it's excellent. I can go months on a set of batteries.
