Hi,

I have a 52" Sharp LCD in my bedroom. I sit about 10 feet away (lay down is more appropriate). The PC is in my office downstairs (cables run through the floor). I am using a BT microsoft mouse & KB. I can sit on the bed & use the KB, but the mouse is a problem.

Is anyone else playing games in bed (PC)? How are you doing it?

Thanks,
Rich

I would really like to know how well those gyration mice work. I've only found one review and it was very good. I am assuming they ar elike a Wii controller...

I will let you know when I get it from Tigerdirect. Hopefully it works well for web browsing & light gaming

I use my mouse on my couch which I would imagine is similar. I use a Steelpad QCK+ which is an oversized soft cloth mouse pad. It works perfect on the couch because it conforms to the curve of the couch, and the cloth surface prevents the mouse from sliding around when I don't want it to.
