This is the set I have:
http://www.microsoft.com/hardw...eand...ls.aspx?pid=016' ">http://www.microsoft.com/hardw...ctdetails.aspx?pid=016
been very happy with it and it can travel through the floor.
(pc is upstairs and I can connect to my tv downstairs and use my mouse and keyboard in the living room. (distance +/- 4.5m with floor between)
long bat life also (going on over 1 year for the keyboard with everyday use; +/- 6 months for the mouse)

euh, I'm not quite sure what you're trying to explain, but I'll try to answer anyways:
the left and right scroll (left and right tilting of the scroll wheel) can't be changed in sensitivity as far as I know, because it uses a switch to "feel" if you move it to the left or right.
so there's no speed difference if you shift it quickly or slowly.
what you do have is a second scroll wheel on the keyboard that has its own back and forward buttons above it.
I guess you could use those buttons to link in games or so.
hope this helps.

Don't much about with IR or RF sets - get Bluetooth!

The unit I bought costs $110:

I think it's well worth it, mostly due to the ability to use the mouse in the air, something very handy from the couch.

If you want a normal mouse and keyboard set, I would also vote for bluetooth.

A buddy of mine has a wireless board and mouse, and he just opens up notepad and it starts typing, one of his neighbors has the same unit, and he can read anything they type. It's quite funny.

Go ahead and laugh, but Walmart has a nice set that I used for a long time, until I got my MX510.

Resolution is good, mouse is fast enough for gaming, not a bad setup and definately not a bad price.
