If it's true, wasted money.

It's BS.

To be exact, it's not just the G100s.

The Omron switches that people love so much have a relatively low spring preload compared to other switches, the reason for their soft clicks.

To achieving this kind of low preload without having entirely defective switches require very good QA, which is why Logitech sources from Omron for their high quality.

And because of their consistency, Logitech is able to set the lowest debounce latency among all brands in their mice.

The problem arises when fatigue/creep over time is considered. The preload effectively provides breathing room for when the leaf switch loses some of its shape over time.

With a lower preload the switch becomes much more sensitive to this effect. It becomes too loose and will not have sufficient tension to hold the contact points together firmly

On top of that, Logitech sets the debounce time so low as to leave no room for the change in behavior.

You can fix this problem by increasing the spring preload slightly. The click will be somewhat harder but more responsive, and it won't double click or lose its tactility entirely over time.

uh... 2/4 of my g100s's had left click issues. one developed in less in a month. but it's fixable if you open up the mouse and scratch the contacts a bit with a small screwdriver.

My G100s stopped registering left clicks reliably. Had to press really hard at the end. I still had my warrenty, so Logitech send me a new one without a big fuss. Is there a way to fix the G100s with the left click problem?

Um... Does anyone know if the bulk packaging ones have warranty?!?

By increasing the spring preload. Or change them to Kailh switches.

You just need the S/N on the mouse label (not on the box)

I really hope they don't let the G100s shape die. I like my G303 but there is still something about that simple shape and lightweight-ed-ness.

The shape is a far cry from simple, its a spaceship. The mouse is also a bit heavy for its size aka dense.

I was talkin' about the G100s.

Really hate all the so-called latest G303, G402 and G502 models because they all represent an extreme case of ultra poor ergonomics.

Most still love their G100s simply because that shape is comfortable to hold for hours, unlike the "Spaceships" thrown out there by Logitech which continue to harm a lot of people.
