I recently bought the diNovo kit because I have been impressed by Logitech's products in the past, such as the Z5500 Surround Sound system. I believe most people buying the diNovo kit would expect a level of quality with the name and price and are likely to already own high end systems.
I was initially disappointed when first setting up the diNovo combo. The receiver appeared to support a number of USB controlled keyboard and mouse devices but Windows XP pro SP2 and setpoint failed to recognise the Bluetooth element of the device. Following some research, a call to Logitech support and one week later I had a replacement receiver direct from Logitech. The new receiver worked perfectly, recognising all diNovo peripherals, happy days.
With my issues behind me, I diligently updated the setpoint software and was keen to test out the MX1000 with battlefield 2. My disappointment returned, the mouse suffered severe lag and would sometimes stop responding all together. Much more research and reading of disappointed reviews followed, had I come so far to now contemplate replacing the MX1000. It seemed to me as it has others, increased CPU activity equals decreased mouse pointer responsiveness. However, at times it was unusable even just using IE.
Thankfully these reviews put me onto inference and I tried putting the USB Receiver into one of the ports at the front of the tower. The problem must have been down to the graphics card or something in the computer cos other than the LCD monitor there's nothing else near. With the receiver moved I can now sit on the other side of the fence with all the other users who have been praising the accuracy and responsiveness of the MX1000.
P.S. I hear a USB extension cable could also help, I intend to try this too, as it should help prove the point and means that I don't have to keep the receiver in the front of the PC.
