It's certainly not the end of the world; but it takes more time to remove them and then fill them in with some sort of resin or whatever that doesn't feel like crap. I just don't see why so many companies can feel comfortable releasing the same exact mouse, but not produce a few units without sidebuttons.
I can also assume that messing with the mouse in that way voids the warranty, so there's that as well. Not everyone always has the cash to drop on replacing broken tech, and if there's anything I've learned here it's that mice are unreliable as hell. Really not fond of voiding the warranty and having the mouse become faulty a month later.
As a related aside; is it possible to remove the sidebutton pcb that exists in most top shells and still have the mouse function properly? I'd assume you could do it on a mouse like the FK1 since it only looks to control buttons, but I believe the DPI toggle is connected to that same pcb on similar mice. Would the mouse still save the dpi setting last used or do I actually need that top pcb for the mouse to function?
Best example I could find in a hurry, but the piece on the right is what I mean; I really have no knowledge on this since I've never taken apart a mouse that has a dpi switcher on top. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!Edited by ralloff - 7/17/16 at 12:58pm
