in which is contained all knowledge and wisdom.

I come before you with a query.

My SO has a dying wireless mouse, and all the wireless ones she can find run at 2.4 GHZ and that will conflict with her network connection and her wireless phone (for sure the phone kills her network, so it's safe to bet that adding more things to that bandwidth isn't a good idea).

My question, how reliable are bluetooth mice? (and keyboards while we're at it).

She's a writer/website/graphics designer so I think the mouse is likely to get a very good workout and accuracy is going to be pretty critical.

Any thoughts or suggestions, please chime in!

HELP!

I use a bluetooth mouse, and like it a lot. (It's a wireless Mighty Mouse.) Battery life is an issue. I think I'm changing batteries once or twice a month. So, if you get one that recharges in a stand, that might be a better bet.

Accuracy has been perfect. (It's a laser mouse.)

I use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard at work. No problems. We have a lot of them and no issues at all. In fact it works tons better than my bluetooth phone, which sucks.
