This so much. I had no issues with peeling on that mouse. I wouldn't mind the side grips if they didn't get slippery for me. After glossy sides and the sides like the BE, I still find the rubber side grips to be the worst among them all. Hell, the XM-300 by GB has side grips that are vastly superior.

I think the "hairline crack" in the picture I posted on page 235 is normal. The new one I exchanged it for has it to. Looks like part of the mould...

Ignore the dust. This is my 2 year old Chroma. Used for 8+ hours every single day. No chips or cracks. If your replacement looks like this (well, this but cleaner) then you're great. If not, return it and buy from somewhere else as your local store clearly has a bad batch.

My mouse is good. I'm keeping it. Your picture made my OCD kick in though. I want to dust it off with a duster and use a lens wipe to clean the surface, LOL. wink.gif

You and me both. I actually use a datavac and an alcohol drenched microfiber cloth on it daily, including just before that photo. Unfortunately my area is just so dusty that in the time it took to unlock my phone and open the camera app, that much dust had resettled. I suppose the camera flash didn't help, but ultimately I live in a asthma experimental research center and I am the unwitting sucker who signed up as the test subject.

The DataVac is the best $50 I've ever spent. Shouldn't you avoid using isopropyl alcohol on mice, since it can strip the coating?

Generally it's safe for soft-touch and rubber, unsafe for bare paint. Unsure about glossy surface and bare plastic.
post #2368 of 2478
it attacks some rubber coatings like some earlier razer / logitech products were using
post #2369 of 2478
Could be. But funnily enough when I've been cleaning the Sensei RAW shell with isopropyl alcohol the bare plastic has melted noticeably, while the soft-touch coated surface has been left unharmed. At first I was, like, 'where does all this black residue come from?'. That was a shame.

CORRECT.

Never use isopropyl on any plastic coating because of the risks involved. Remember there are thousands of recipes using a variety of ABS coatings so some will dissolve with certain chemicals when used.

Safest way to clean anything is soap and water, basically a hand cleanser type of liquid. It has to be gentle and be able to remove dried, dead skin particles off any plastic coating.
