Doesn't surprise me that the scroll button might be flaking out. They cut corners on the scroll button(cheap tactile switch) and the power cable(soldered on) for the button pcb.

Amazing shape imo. Same with the buttons.

Useless stuff that no one cares about trivia time! The DPI buttons(ttc low profile) on the X10 are used for the main m1/m2 buttons on the Saitek RAT 1 and the Dexin/Gamdias Zeus. The Zeus's msrp was $129.99 when it was released. \o/

The only two issues that I have had with this mouse is the side button paint wearing off and this scroll wheel button issue. The scroll wheel itself works fine but Mouse3 is unreliable. It's a shame because I really like this mouse.

I bought a Logitech G5 back in 2007. After 8 months the scroll wheel button stopped responding. A month later the right mouse button started to get the double click issue. My old Logitech G15 came with a cosmetic defect. After 2-3 years of usage the keyboard was well worn, the keys felt very mushy, and the space bar had developed stress fractures where my thumb had pressed on it. Then there is the Driving Force GT I have. That thing has a massive dead zone in the middle and has some massive plastic flex to it. That's just to name a few Logitech products that I have owned.

I have tried to give Logitech a second chance way too many times now. There comes the point where you just have to say no. I'm at that point. I'm done with them.

the scroll wheel shaft is made of a really crappy plastic, so i reemplaced the shaft with a piece of a metal Hey key and the rotary enconder with a High Quality one (ALPS Japan). After 1.5yr both click start having the classic "double click" problem, so borrow new switches from a dead G502.

I would be down to do something like that if I had proper soldering skills. My only experience with soldering is replacing the LED indicators on my case. I wouldn't feel comfortable replacing an entire switch on a PCB.

Just got a chroma, been using the g303 and the difference in tracking is surprisingly noticable.. Wait and get the g pro. 3366 sensor is supreme.. Also, the mouse feet literally 0.1mm thick or something, mouse belly would slightly touch my mousepad. : E very strange

Dont take my word for it but there is probably coming an updated ergonmic "g pro" from logitech soon aswell..

Buying a rubber dome and then expecting it to not get mushy thinking.gif
Suit yourself, Logitech's gaming line now is pretty high quality.

If it helps. I've been using a Corsair M 65 mouse for two years now. No problems at all.
I had a Logitech G 710 keyboard that worked for eight months before the plastic receptacles under several keys started to shatter. It was replaced with a Black Widow Ultimate that has been in use for fifteen months now without any problems.

Are there any better choices? I've also looked at Corsair but they don't look like they would be comfortable for a palm grip user. I won't even consider Logitech after getting burnt by them way too many times in the past.

I've owned a total of three DA Chromas in the past. The first of which lasted quite a while; a little over a year, in fact. However, by then, the mouse had developed a terrible double-clicking problem. Sometimes, even pushing the M1 button is certain places would click but somehow not register on-screen; so yeah, that had to be replaced.

My second DA Chroma came in with an M1 button that took significantly more force to actuate than the M2. Returned it within the first few days.

THIRD mouse arrived, and I threw it in the trash right away. I personally hated the huge distance the buttons had to travel to actuate the switches in the mouse, even since the first Chroma I got, but it seemed to get worse and worse each time I RMAd. Was done with Razer at that point

Got a Logitech G502 soon after, and have no complaints, save the fact that it's a very heavy mouse and wears down cloth mousepads pretty quickly.

xD I meant in a manner of speaking. What I actually did was dissect it that evening to find out what the hell was wrong with it, sorta broke it in the process, THEN threw it away. Still only used it for less than a day, but at that point, the 2-year warranty on the one I first ordered was almost up and I couldn't be bothered.

Your avatar makes that the perfect comment LOL.

Fair enough. My sister has been using the same setup for a bit over a year now. No problems with keyboard or mouse so far.

The Deathadder is still to this day the best mouse i've had. I never had an issue with my 3.5 G, i still have it too. I'm thinking of just saying bump it & sticking to the adder. So much about it i love.

Most comfy for me is the Ec1, but the DA is the best combination of comfort & performance for me thus far.
