Mouse acting up(G5) - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I used to have a G5 and never thought of changing (though I never had the issues you have). I then was offered a really good price on a G9x and haven't looked back.
It's not the newest around, but you can get them at very good prices now and, at least for me, seems like a very smooth progression from the G5

The micro switch contacts and/or the board is probably dirty. You could try disassembling it and cleaning it out w/ some rubbing alcohol and some q-tips. Working on the micro switches is doable, but a pain. If a general cleaning doesn't fix it, replace it w/ an MX518. I've had 2. Amazing mice, better than a G5.
i dont smoke, i drink this much coffee that it wouldnt be a suprise if i spilled some at some point, im not really fan of sugary drinks. i do have sweatty hands if that can be a problem aswell. can you give me a bit more information on what to clean exactly?

I favor a heavy mouse actually, also the reason why i got some of those weighths inside. i still think im either gonna go with the mx518 or the g500, the point is the prices are about equal for me here(i can get the g500 close at a store, and i would have to order the mx518 online which adds shipping fee's) apart from the fact that i rather buy something in a store close, im yet concerned about the downsides of the g500. i think that is something im going to have to make up for myself though.

Thank you all again for the helps )
