  • It almost never has phantom scrolls. (hello Zowie 24 step)
  • It doesn't wobble like mechanical encoders do due to the way its constructed (both ends are fixed, unlike mech encoders where 1 end is free to press the button and the other is fixed in the encoder)
  • Scroll up doesn't rattle more than scroll down, like it does on most mechanical encoders
  • Its an optical encoder - which means almost unlimited lifespan. Mech encoders usually go bad within the first 2 years of use
  • Its almost impossible to spin the wheel by accident when pressing middle click
  • Middle click is harder to press than other buttons, so it wont be misclicked when scrolling down harder than usual.

Agree, it's a good scroll wheel, still loud as hell.

i think it's too loud as well.
logitech's optical encoder feels a bit too artificial for me. like if you scroll slowly, the point where the scroll actuates isnt consistent. and with the g303 if you scroll slowly enough you don't get a scroll at all

There is probably a timeout on that.
So whats your pick? Zowie is actually a lot louder than g303 g402 g602 g100s scroll wheels

My FK1 scroll wheel was very quiet but flimsy.

Well I only have a EC2 16 step wheel to compare it to atm and its hellishly loud. 24 step wheel is quieter. Whell it was still loud based on my memory

yea for sure it's a timeout. but it's a little bit too aggressive imo.
my favorite wheel is the one on my evga torq x5. it's some kailh mechanical encoder though so durability obviously wouldn't be the greatest. but it's tactile, quiet, and not loose at all.
i've never tried a roccat mouse but i've heard their wheels are great.

but it's possible for an optical encoder to feel consistent. the timeout thing is only necessary because logitech does the quadrature decoding inside the 3pin thing that detects the light, and it's easy for it to get out of sync.

the optical encoders in microsoft's mlt04 mice have almost perfectly consistent actuation points with a tiny bit of hysteresis. so imo a smoother, quieter g303 wheel + microsoft's optical encoder configuration would be perfect.

It's not because of the LEDs tough, also my deathadder didn't do this and had LEDs

The G303 has "stronger" LEDs
