I just bought this mouse from a German company called bit-electronix for a really good price over here in the UK. They auction stated it was new but open boxed. The auction also mentioned it was a 'revocation' item, wherever that means in Germany.

So it arrived yesterday (3 days from de to uk not bad) and from what I can tell the lens is good and not loose at all. The item does look new (which is nice) and was in original box.

I am loving the mouse tbh it feels really great in the hand but I have a little issue. It seems the LMB floats above the switch by a mm. Once you get clicking it disappears but if you leave the mouse for a minute and click you feel the gap. I remember my old MX518 did that but I kept it and just got used to it. But nowadays I like things to be perfect (OCD) but shipping back to Germany could be a hassle and If I got it replaced it could be the same or have lens rattle. My Lua doesn't have this problem.

Would you keep it or send it back?

I'd keep it and replace the switches with something that has a taller plunger. Too expensive to ship back, I'd imagine. 01F's and Huanos have a slightly taller one, I think. I replaced the Omrons in my KPM for Huano Pinks and I needed to sand a bit off of the shell that made contact with the switch because the plunger was too tall.

Hi.

Its not too bad tbh I think I will keep it and just use it as is and later down the line I might replace the switch. I don't like opening something that is brand new. I have a 30 day return policy if need be.

How easy is it to replace switches?

I'll put it this way. I'd never touched a soldering iron until I wanted to start swapping switches. The down side to this is you need to fork out some money for the iron, solder, some good desoldering braid and having a desoldering pump is handy. I spent a lot of time researching the best methods and once I found thunda's guide here, Swapping microswitches for "dummies", I was golden. This specific image here is easily the best method I've come across: http://i.imgur.com/Suq9L.jpg What this showed me was how to keep the solder on all 3 pins molten while taking out the switch. Previously I'd been doing each of them individually.

Getting some practice first is a must, really. Have any cheap office mice you'd be willing to sacrifice?

Edit: These are the things you'll maybe need to sand down slightly


And here are the switches

Hi.

Thanks for your advice but its overkill for me to buy all that soldiering gear. I saw a video on youtube of a guy who just flicked off the top of the switch and bent the metal in the switch, but i think this was just to fix double clicking issues though.

I've got a 30 day return warranty so I will see how I go with the Kone and if its an issue I can send it back.

Cheers.

Glue something thin onto the plunger.

Did you try the usual troubleshooting e.g. Trying another usb port, plugging in another mouse, deleting driver, restoring to defaults.

Yes, plugged in an old mouse. Works correctly. Replugged to another USB, uninstall driver, cleaned the lense.....Still the same.
I feel this is it. Will try Zowie FK1 or Rival 300

I had a problem EXACTLY like you're desribing not long ago. When I would swipe right or left in-game I would end up facing the ground or looking up to the sky. Then when I went into paint and drew circles there was an INSANE amount of jagginess going on and looked like it was operating at 30 or 60Hz instead of 1000. I reinstalled the software, factory defaulted it about 3 times, set all my settings and then surface tuned it again and everything was fine. I have a feeling it was a fault to do with the surface tuning feature.
