HEY!!! I was looking at the logitech lx700 keyboard and mouse combo and was wondering if anyone out there that owned one could let me know how nice it is...ie its response time in playing games etc...
I know you posted this a long time ago, but I have the combo, and let me tell you its the best mouse keyboard I have ever used!!! I stress to get ths The mouse is nice and heavy with 7 buttons. Very ergonomic. Id go to ICTcompany.com They sell refurbished for 39 bucks free shipping (i think its free shipping)....but if you like new you probally know where to go. It has a nice rechargable stand also. GREAT GREAT!!!

In no way whatsoever. No lag no nothing just nice smooth sailing. best feeling mouse I've ever used (like I said) Id keep buying this model if it were to keep crapping out (but it hasn't...You know what I mean though Im sure) You check out ICT? I got mine there. My GF bought hers new for 100 bucks....lol...I got mine that looked brand new for 39!! HAHA.
I've been playing STAR WARS: GALAXIES for about a month now with the wireless Keyboard, and mouse....and nothing wrong at all. handles great.
My GF's has the same one...She has the actual receiver (charge stand) in behind the monitor almost completely hidden, and both components work just fine.

Thanks... Yeah... I'm in toronto, Canada... and I've found a refurbished set for about $50 Canadian. I think I might go for it... thanks for the help... I don't know where ICT is or if its canadian .. but I'll check it out anyways...
One more thing... I just read a review on newegg.com... out of 60 or 70 reviews this keyboard and mouse combo got a 5 out of 5...great... but the first review I read said "don't buy for gaming".. the guy goes on to say that the mouse tends to lag on games like battlefield 2 and stuff but that the keyboard is fine... I've go to finish reading the rest of the reviews... but let me know what you think...thanks
I actually played BF2 Demo, and really didn't notice anything wrong. Well theres always going to one unsatisfied customer. Seems that more reviews liked it than not. I know of 4 people that have what I have, and they love it! Anything better would probally be the MX1000, and thats Lazer plus I think it's more heavier/bigger. I still think it's the best just because it doesn't look like a cheap mouse/fits the hand perfect (you can just feel the quality in the way it moves). Plus before I bought this one I gave away my other MX700 to my friend that was used for over a year. (My bro gave it to me cause he bought the MX1000) So I used it for about a half year plus the year or so my bro was using it. If you don't slam it down, and obviously keep good care of it I'm sure that thing would last for more than 5 years!!! lol. The guy who was having lag could have had a Bad mouse, or his receiver was not well positioned, but Like I said my GF has it almost hidden, and it works great!! She also plays Star Wars: Galaxies online with me. I actually tested the distance that it has, and it reaches to about ten feet.(From Mouse to receiver). I liked the part where I just plugged it in, and all the button configurations were already set by Microsoft....even on the Keyboard. Nice Nice. My GF was so jealous of this mouse (Geezuz Girl it's just a damn mouse and keyboard) she dragged me to the store to get one with her!...lol...Check out all the games I own In Software/games...I list all the games that I've played, and so far nothing has been wrong with this mouse......
Thanks for all the input... You've really helped make the decision easier... I couldn't locate ICT through google... what's their website??? Yeah I'll definetely go with either the lx700 or the mx1000 though I'm on a tight buget it'll probably be the lx 700...
I beleive it's under Input devices Part LC300....37 dollars with shipping which I think its 2 bucks or free...let me know what happens....(how much it cost you if you go for it)(I got this place from PriceGrabber.com BTW)
Thanks for the URL... but unfortunately it's located in the us... and I live in Canada... I could, but I've found a refurbished set for the same price they have listed except in Canadian dollars... so it's cheaper... but thanks alot!!!
I think that the price has gone up... it's now $55 but it's still better than &100. Listen, when you get it tell me what you think of it as I'm planning on purchasing one myself. I'm mainly concerned with the lag when playing some more advanced games such as half life 2 , doom3 and the like. Tell me what you think. I found it at:
