Looking for a brand besides Logitech that has smooth/hyper scrolling...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Think I may try a different brand besides Logitech because their mice don't last very long for me. I hate to leave behind the great software and customization but this will be the 3rd mouse to die in four years.
Anyone know of a mouse brand/model that good quality, has a lot of buttons and the hyper scroll tech that Logitech mice have?

I am willing to try any brand but 9+ customizable button and hyper scroll is a must.


Thanks.

Hyper scroll is exclusive to Logitech.

Furthermore Logitech has the best after sales support out there. Get your mouse replaced as its still under warranty.

No mouse maker has better QC and product longevity than Logitech. They are like the things that will be used in post-apocalyptic situations.
You're doing it wrong or something.

What's wrong with it anyway? Miss clicks, sensor not responding,scroll wheel not working,dead altogether,...?

Some people take it rough on a mouse. Palm style/low sensitivity fpser's basically bash the mouse on the table in long swiping motions. Some might like to tap off shots in games. Hell, raging on the things. If you're the type that punishes your mouse then it isn't likely any mouse is going to last you that long.

Mine tend to last years. I've had one mouse die on me. Even then it wasn't the mouse. It was the wireless adapter that broke on an early wireless model.

Looks like I will stick with Logitech because I can not live without the scroll tech. I do think their quality over the years has worsened and I have to get replacement more frequently. Only mouse that stood up my abuse was the MX revolution and i sold that years ago.

Microsoft had a scroll wheel on the sidewinder mice that would roll pretty freely iirc.
I wouldn't recommend one of those mice though but they do exist.

I guess I am doing it wrong O.o

I have never had a logi mouse last out its warranty.. where as other much cheaper mice I have have been going for years :S
Though I have other products from them that have lasted forever just not the mice :S

I thought it was due to buying the wrong models and then had my run around with the 502.
I have been super hesitant about getting another, but the new mouse I just got to replace my dropped sensei is super uncomfortable(c 250m) so I may give them another try perhaps.

I have never in my whole time using logitech mice had one break on me. I've only had two mice break: a corsair m45 scroll wheel and a PoS laser sidewinder mouse. Although I broke the sidewinder by smashing it into my desk too many times
