I tend to place my cell phone near my stereo and I can hear when my phone sends out any signals. Never once have the lag problem and cell phone interference with my sound system coincided. I have no wireless devices other than my cell phone and this mouse.
The lag problem has reduced to a fraction since I placed the receiver nearer my mouse (from a distance of 20 inches/50cm to less than 10 inches/25cm).
However I do agree that it is a good idea to keep mouses (and other hardware) clean and sober.

I tried everything your Tech Support advised me but it just doesn't work. Yes, even if I glue the receiver to my hand which operates the MX Revolution, it will still freeze! Not to mention that having to put wires to a CORDLESS mouse is nonsensical on its own. I am getting tired of this, I would like to have the mouse replaced with a corded mouse, hell I'll even take a new MX518 (even though its a downgrade in many ways) for this piece of junk.
You should've fixed this issue a long time ago, so if you replace the mouse you replace it with a working one. But clearly you prefer to act innocent and claim its "interference/surface/software" problem. No, its not. It's a hardware design flaw. I'm starting to believe the mouse is actually interfering with itself! Its interfering is inherent.

I have the same exact problem with the MX Air, but only when using it on the desk, it seemed to work OK in the air, even at longer distances than 1-2 feet (duh).
I think it's probably the technology in the mini receiver from that generation. Those two receivers from both mice even interfere with each other. I can move both cursors with both mice in two computers at the same time, click buttons, etc. No way to pair an individual mouse with an individual receiver, like we could do with the receivers with "connect" buttons, is bad (I can't say "s u c k s"?).
The more important question is... Has ANYONE who has exchanged their MX Revolution had their problem fixed? I'd like to know if the replacements CAN be good (there are quite a few for whom the exchanges were just as bad).

The reason i say that is because if some1 who interested to buy this wonderful mouse read every1's complain and crap "this mouse is horrible etc.." mb he change his mind.
1st of all this mouse is not for games the company have say it and every1 who have review this mouse say it too.
2nd I use the mouse for more than 8 hours now and it didn't freeze for 1'' or more like many say here the mouse works perfect.
3th and last i want to say the one and only negative thing in this mouse in my opinion.. the weight of it it's really heavy! the battery i suppose is the fault for that but it's hard for some1 that have used to sth more light.. to have a heavy mouse is hard to target sth in a game but i suppose i cant complain about this this mouse is not for games i play some games mostly MMO/RTS and for now i can say i have a prob but it's still early i must get used to it some more..
I have WINDOWS VISTA PREMIUM x64 in my PC
I have always cellphone near my mouse on top of my desk
I have put the receiver in one of the front USB ports of my tower, the tower is on top of my desk right from my monitor the receiver and the mouse have about 40-50 cm distance from each other.
I have try to use the mouse in my bed while watch random stuffs in my LCD (one of the reason i buy always wireless mouse) i try it for 1 hour+ from 2,5m-3m distance no freeze/lag at all nothing ZERO.
I don't have idea why u say about this lag prob i never seen anything like this until now.. i use the mouse for some hours but it works perfect i just need to get used to this weight cause its really hard to target sth with accuracy.

in 6 months of regular use, please post your results in this thread. when it starts skipping, eat what you say.
The mouse new, is great. the feel is good, the button clicks are precise, the customization is nice, the weight is wonderful... but it shouldnt die in 5 months
