    I recently had to buy a cheap Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combo from Tesco (keyboard stopped worked at 2 in the morning and needed something quick and Tesco was the only option at that time of day). The keyboard works fine for my needs, but the mouse is garbage, so is it possible to get a Logitech gaming mouse (something like the G7) and use it with my current receiver, or will i have to use the one supplied with the G7?

    Hi

    I'm not sure about your exact combination - I know that a large chunk of the Logitech stuff is compatible with each others receivers though. We use Logitech cordless combo's with one of our customers and regularly end up mixing and matching mice, keyboards and receivers from different ranges without encountering a problem.

    It's quite likely that the G7 mouse uses a higher reporting rate than their low end stuff so it would probably be advisable to use the correct receiver with it anyway.

    If the worse comes to the worse, it will be fine to have both receivers connected.

    Thanks for the reply, i suppose the best thing to do, would be to try it, especially if the two reveivers can be used side by side.
