303 uses an optical encoder, the problem like you mentioned is the way they mounted the 303 wheel to the top shell, it is pretty completely integrated. The G400 also uses an optical scroll-wheel. but mounted on the bottom PCB rather then the top shell.

My point. G502 looks better in that regard, although sensor and main PCB are separate I think.

Some guy named "h8m3" on esreality did the g303 (i think) in the G100s. Has the top mounted scroll wheel as well and the stock PCB otherwise looks kind of like G400.

TL;DR is that the architecture between the G303 and the G400 (and maybe MX518) is very different. Top shell has a board with 6 pins for all the buttons (except for the DPI up) and the scroll wheel is actually mounted to the board, unlike the G303 (anyone know how G303 wheel works/connects to the board as it's part of the top shell and I don't see any cable) So throw your dreams of a 3366 in a G400 shell for the foreseeable future.

I also own a FK1 and the design with how the side buttons connect seems a bit more promising. Couldn't find many dissasmbly pictures of it other then the one's in Ino's review. I will take mine apart if needed but don't want to trash the feet (put the 2nd pair on tongue.gif)


Is it not possible to just pure tranplant the PCB? As in, no need to connect anything other than ensure the PCB is firmly in place (as long as is it is powered and connected to the USB connection).

I thought so as well. But think about sensor position, making sure the buttons line up for the micro switches. How to deal with the scroll wheel on the board instead of on the top shell, etc.

Oh God... I seriously tried to give this mouse a good try. I've had it for a few months now, used it on and off, not sure whether I gave it a fair chance...

And now I'm pretty sure I'm over the shape. Whenever I need to make fine and precise movements with the mouse, let's say moving the mouse cursor to exactly the correct letter when renaming a file, it's a complete pain in the ass to move it there, because of its irregular shape. My fingers can't control the mouse when it has these ridiculous angles, and it takes all these micro back-and-forth movements just to rename a fking file.

My hand needs to CONTROL the freaking mouse - how in the hell did Logitech expect people to control a diamond-shaped mouse?

It's seriously ludicrous. Call me overly dramatic, I don't care. I'm seriously just throwing this in the bin, and using the Avior I have in my drawer.

Maybe sell it to people who want the PCB? wink.gifrolleyes.gifredface.gif

Anyone found a place to buy a good flexible replacement cable that I could just put in the 303 without having to mess with any of the wires and whatnot? Would be a plus if it also had a stress relief thing on it that also fit where the 303's goes.

Exact same situation as you :/

I would advise this is a mouse for 18+ cm palms. Shorter palms and you can't grab anything properly on it.
