Logitech MX300: Old Gem or Inferior G100S garbage?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
TL;DR:
I got lucky and found an MX300 in great shape and want to sell it. Is it worth much money? Or is it obsolete because G100S?

A while back I was just starting to get interested in mice and modding them. I've been frequenting all the local thrift stores for years for electronics but my knowledge of mice was limited. I picked up a logitech mouse that was gray and black because it looked cool, was in great shape, and only $2. Turns out it's a genuine MX300. Switches still have a lot of life and the shell is in perfect shape except for one small (1mm) scratch

I'm looking to sell the thing on ebay but don't really know what to price it at. Basically, is there any demand for this mouse at all? Or should I just hang onto it (I really like the shape! I just have so many other mice). From the googling I've done, older forum posts (2012) have people willing to pay a LOT of money. Newer posts seem to say it's pretty much inferior to the G100s which can be had for under $20. How does the AM010 compare to the A2020?

I can post pictures when I get home from work if anyone is interested.

Nobody wants to buy it anymore. You are like 3 years too late. The g100s is not even comparable in performance or sensor feeling or even shape. But the most mx300 lovers already got their spare samples by now. This mouse is very durable and perfect. The developers are aware of that. Pretty much the reason why it doesnt have driver support and why we never will see a mouse like that again.

It's only drawback imo was the prediction, other then that, at 400 dpi, it's a better mouse then alot of others today.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!
I'll just hang onto it then, especially since I like the shape. Still a great find for a mere $2 rolleyes.gif

I've seen them sell on eBay recently (few months ago) for over 100, but they were brand new in box.
