Actually I have a wireless Logitech mouse that uses an internal battery with a docking station.
It works great. It works on almost any surface. I've used on my white table (which optical doesn't work on; so I don't need
a mousepad anymore), works on head, works on my wood wall, the top side of a CD, clothes, my arm... pretty much any surface except for glass. (reflective surfaces like glass, or a tv, window etc..)
I've had my mouse since June of 05 and has been working flawlessly ever since.
The wireless ability works great for when I stream DVDs from my computer to the TV in the living room. The distance is about 15 feet through my wall. Lags slightly if I don't use the mouse at about the same elevation of the docking station.
I bought the MX3100 desktop suite online. At the time I paid $125 for it. But I am glad I did though! It was well worth the money.http://reviews.cnet.com/Logitech_Cordless_...7-31287803.html
