List of cheaply made (and useless mice) - Page 4  

post #31 of 38
Sorry but this thread is a flawed. Adding mice that are $39.99 cheap to begin with as fail?

Not looking at internals of each mouse to determine true inexpensive quality is nothing more than an opinion thread based on perception.

I'd feel more ripped off paying $79.99 for a mouse with sub par scroll wheel like zowie than a mouse I paid 39.99 and got exactly what I paid for.

I suggest newer members reading to take this thread with grain of salt.

Price shouldn't necessarily be tied to value/quality, so I'd argue that having a lower build quality seen in the grand scheme of the mouse market is inexcusable, especially in an environment like these forums. The slogan of the site is "The pursuit of performance." Price is only tied to what people are willing to pay for the product, not the product itself. I haven't done much reading in this thread, so I'm assuming there's at least some degree of needless disappointment in a few products, though.

Taking the mouse apart isn't always necessary to see problems, though. If anything, it would probably just reveal more build quality issues. If something other than sensor performance etc. is actually having an effect on gameplay (in this scenario simple build quality), it should (usually) be noticeable from regular use.

What about most Razer's and their forced software, and half their mice using crap sensors with Z-axis bug? tongue.gif

I'm surprised how people find the EC2-A scrollwheel to be cheap. I think its actually quite premium looking and feeling. I mean the FK2 scrollwheel seems to be just a piece of solid plastic, the G303 is some sort of rubber but it also looks rather cheaply made when it comes to shape.

It's actually the lenses, not the sensors. They do it on purpose.

(excluding PTE)

I thought the "Philips twin eye sensor' literally used two different sensors and combine their final data or something.. But I guess it could be the lens in front of it. You reckon it could be removed then? lol

I literally said excluding PTE.

PTE is not the only thing razer uses.

It's actually quite a good build compared to some others plus I heard from some Mouse Geek here on OCN, that they use ALPs scrollers instead of the cheapo TTC garbage.
