I just got a new logitech elite and mx500 mouse from overstock.com for $48. I really like the keyboard. The mouse is nice too but it doesn't work with my mousepad :confused: I guess i need to get a new one :confused:

I was using a standard kboard and a 5 year old MS intelli mouse. Good riddance. :clap:

Same here. Lovin' it! The best part is that most of the mouse buttons work without MouseWare. Excellent!

Cheers,

The mx500 is optical correct? If so, make sure that your mousepad is not reflective. I haven't used a mousepad since my last "ball mouse". Opticals work just fine on most any desktop, couch, etc.

Yea opticals don't work well on some light color mouse pads but generally work fine on most desktops and dark surfaces. Pretty much any surface that can reflect light efficiently is fine.

Just not too reflective i.e. mirrors, tin foil, etc. :p

I'm going to pick up one the MX700 wireless keyboard combo myself. Sounds good for $75.

Really? I've never had any problems with mine. Maybe it's because mine is a dark faux mahogony...I bet oak or birdseye maple really freaks 'em out though. :p
