g100s horrifying squeakyness problems.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
A few weeks ago, I purchased a g100s to replace a left-handed Death Adder that had stopped working. The first one arrived and both buttons and the scrollwheel squeaked like crazy, to the point I could hear it through closed headphones, so I decided to have it replaced. The second one arrived and both the scrollwheel and the left click (used as a "right click" because left-handed) were squeaking louder than before, and playing games with lots of right clicking was maddening.

So I sent it off to get replaced again, and the unit I currently have has the squeakyness only in the scrollwheel. Before I just return it for another mouse entirely, I was wondering if anyone has cracked it open and knows if anything can be done about it? I love the size, shape, and weight of it, so I'd like to try if there's something that can be done.

Once you will use Deathadder's scrollwheel you will never look back biggrin.gif

No kidding, that one was smooth like butter and the g100s's sounds like a cicada hatchery. It'd be a nice enough mouse if it didn't have this problem, but the variety of squeaking in the different units isn't leaving me with much hope, it really seems like bad quality control.

In the first two, the squeaking happened no matter what, the current unit only squeaks scrolling up. Even the buttons which squeaked varied between the first two that I returned.

I just got one, and my left and right mouse buttons squeak seemingly at random. It's a reaaaallly annoying squeak too, like nails on a chalkboard, but it doesn't do it all the time. Just enough to be really annoying. Thinking of taking it back and getting something else.

I've not been impressed with logitech's on mice since the G600 (returned 4 of them) and I'm not playing this game again with the g100s, back it goes for a refund. Meanwhile my G710+ is like a rock. Whoever is doing design for that keyboard, let them do mice from now on.

Logitech seems to have some variation in their batches - what seems to be really poor QC. I feel lucky with my 100s having played this round of roulette.

If the sensor actually performs well, all you have to do is buy a new set of mouse feet then open the mouse up with a screwdriver and I'm sure the squeek could be fixed with some sandpaper pretty easy.

I picked up a G100s last week, no squeakiness. I did remove the internal weight, much better without it IMO. It's actually a really nice mouse but maybe I just got a lucky roll of the QC dice.

no need to buy new feet, just use a chiseling blade and you can still use the same back glide.

I just used a knife blade and lifted half the foot up, took out the screw, then replaced it all later. Stuck right back on just fine.

I took mine apart and removed the weight and the mouse isn't even usable without the weight in because it won't lay flat on the surface as you move it around. What's weird is it also didn't squeek at all until it took it apart and put it back together and now it squeeks...
