Optical mice are nothing new, hell, even wireless mice are pretty much standard. The problem is the technology used to operate the wireless optical device and the power that the device needs to operate. If either of these technologies didn't depend on the other, then wireless would be more prevalent than it is. Alas, it is dependant, so we are forced to look to alternative ways to power and drive these devices. The <a href="http://www.logitech.com">Logitech</a> MX 700 is a great example of the best in wireless optical technology, with no problems with power sources. Let's find out if this mouse is worth the cost.


Remember when wireless mice had to be line of sight? No more! Even the cheapest of the wireless mice are RF (Radio Frequency). Most of the cheap mice have a very limited range, due to the power that it takes to power the RF antenna. Creating an Electromagnetic wave is pretty power consuming, you need to vary the current in the antenna to get the wave. New technologies are coming down the pike to make the current less and less, but nevertheless, the principle is still the same.

The box is pretty much the standard white and green Logitech box. There is really no mistaking a box from Logitech. Good branding.



The parts that come in the box; The Mouse, the base station, 2 1700 mAh NiMH batteries, Manual and CD, and the AC adapter. I'll go into them more in depth.

The charger also happens to be the wireless receiver. This is good because you only need one device on your desk, and you always leave it near the mouse and just drop it on the charger. The charger is silver and black, the only button is the connect button. The unit is shaped nice and curvy.
