Even though there are several models featuring extra good reliability with 20M life cycle I prefer the D2F.

What good is a 20M switch if I dont like the click feeling or find the sound annoying?

20M??!! What microswitch?!

Exist any mouse without obsolescence (without double click issue)?

I'm using a Logitech G5 (5 years) and work perfectly! but the new logitech g500 has the double click issue frown.gif.

Somebody knows about any mouse with microswitches >10M or ~20M life cycle???

Thx!! and sorry for my english.

Steelseries Sensei MLG uses Omron D2FC-F-7N(20M) as main switches. I saw a pair on ebay for about $15, you could buy them and replace your bad switches.

I have been using a G500 for about 3 years (10M) . The first year was flawless, then I had to open the mouse to check the double click problem in my left button, I just opened and putted back the little piece of metal, it was kinda difficult to do it the first time.

Then, in anotther six months, I had to open again the mouse, this time because some problem with the rigth button, it begun to release the load until become very annoying.

These first two times it seemed that it was just some weird static problem. This time the little piece of plastic needed to be re established.

Its a good mouse, but its kinda annoying having to give it maintenance. And its supposed it is using the best omrong microswitch (the 10 million clicks).

I wonder if there is a better microswitch that can handle heavy load or I just have to stick giving these maintenance ?

Pretty much maintaining a mouse is what you have to do. If you are lazy just buy a new one. There are people that will buy in bulk for that reason.

Changing the microswitch is a kind of maintenance that is mostly equal to buy a new one, but way long cheaper.

Unfortunatly I haven't found other places where people talk about what is the best microswitch, I open this account just to join me in the search of the best microswitch.

Its obvious that if I got the "best" microswitch (Omron D2FC-F-7N(10M)) and that with my gaming style it wont hold up to 2 years, I have to give it maintenance one way or another. The problem is that the shell of my microswitch probably wont endure two more fixes.

One of the problem is that I can not get OMRON microswitches in my country, I have to import them... and thats part of the reason I want a better microswitch for me (one that withstand a heavy load).

Omrons are so much better that other switches are not worthy of consideration. The 7n's are mostly the same. The 01f's are different and arguably better. The japanese-made/sorted/whatever 01F's have less actuation force and feel better to me for RTS. I cannot go back to 7n's because of it. 7n's require more actuating force but also snap back a little quicker it seems (at least to me).

Most people are happy with 7n's. I have wimpy fingers and go for the softest tactile click which is the 01F's.

The main cost is the S&H. The switches themselves individually are pretty cheap. If you're going to replace switches, buy a bunch extra just in case. I have a ton of 01F's sitting around. I put them in my Death Adder Black Edition and Zowie Evo EC2. I would've put them in my CM Storm Spawn but the switches seemed to be soldered on. Wear and tear doesn't only happen with the switch. The shell of the mouse may get warped or the contact between the buttons and the switches may become damaged.

5-10 million clicks is a lot of clicks. You shouldn't have to change switches, if at all, more than once every two years.

Cherry DG2 are fun.

Believe they're a tad pricey compared to other more logical submini's. Rating, is quite low as well (1m)

Wait, what mouse doesn't have switches soldered in?
