Looking into these items. Anyone make the switch and regret it? I have heard some complaints in regards to response time and the scroll ball with the wireless mouse.

If anyone is running with these items let me know how you're making out.

- Thanks

Our school uses wireless mice and it seems to be fine with scrolling and response time. I use them everyday and haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary.

Are they the Apple versions (Apple wireless Mighty Mouse)?

using/used wireless ms keyboards and mouse(s - I know) on windows is fine in my opinion. Once its set up its like any other mouse I've used. I'm actually going back to a wifi keyboard eventually due to cables always getting tangled up with the gfx tablet.

My experience is that they go through batteries pretty quickly. I went back to wired.

I love my wireless Mighty Mouse. I like that it's heftier because of the battery weight, too. It seems to give it a more tactile feel.

I use the wired keyboard though. I dislike the smaller arrow keys and omitted number pad on the wireless version.

I use the Apple BT KB and MM and I don't have any issues. I went with the BT KB because it can be placed without the usb wire in my way since my Wacom takes up a good amount of space. I also tend to turn off my stuff when I'm done so the batteries last in the KB, never changed yet but I've gone through 4-6 batteries in the MM in about 10-12 months :cool:
I have the (guess you might say) older KB with the white/tall keys but it's nice since I just go by feel to use my hot keys when working with my tablet at the same time.

I have no complaints with my Wireless Mighty Mouse. If you don't want the scroll ball to stuff up, I recommend to scroll it against a lint free material (such as a pair of jeans), for about 30 seconds. It says that in the manual.

The future is wireless, so why not make a head start? :D
