Ok so... For years now, I've have a Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse.

It was awesome. It had a feature that I absolutely love.

A Dual Mode wheel.

Meaning I could click a switch on the mouse to change the wheel from a clicking scroll, to a smooth scroll.

I've had it for nearly 8 years and its worked pretty good. At one point the left click button started acting up, which became most noticeable a couple years back while playing Skyrim as an Archer and holding the mouse button down to shoot an arrow,the button would misfire and shoot the arrow too soon. I managed to fix it on my own with a little internal mouse surgery. A little springy clip needed to be adjusted and good as new.

Well now the right button and one of the side buttons is acting up so I decided it was time to replace it.

First we tried the Logitech G600.

But its mouse wheel was just horribly slow and after a few days of using it, the mouse itself just didnt feel as comfortable in my hand as I hoped it would.

So I did a little researching and saw that the Razer Naga HEX Wraith is advertised as having a Dual Mode wheel!

Awesome! Looked it up on Microcenter's website and they too advertise it as a Dual Mode wheel. Went to the nearest store this afternoon, decided it felt more comfortable in my hand cause they let you hold it through its plastic packaging shell... so I exchanged the G600 for a Naga Hex.

Now I'm home and have to all hooked up and...

-and its NOT a dual-mode wheel!

Its a TILT CLICK wheel with no smooth scrolling!

Razer even has it listed on their own website as NOT being a Tilt Click but it IS a Tilt Click; and there is nothing in the provided manual about it being a Dual Mode wheel.

Razer has several other versions of the Naga mouse, and they're all advertised specifically as a TILT CLICK, except this Naga Hex Wraith which is specifically listed as a DUAL MODE wheel.

Its clearly not, and its obviously a Tilt Click.

So seriously... W.T.F. Razer!

Yes, I'm complaining about it here because I can't necessarily complain on Razer's forums without registering on their website, and I don't feel like doing that because now I'm not even sure if I want to keep this Mouse either.
