"infinity scroll" mice.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Heya,
I'm looking at getting a mouse with the so called "infinity scroll" that some Logitech mice have. The cheapest i've found that they are offering is the Logitech M500.
What i'm wondering is if there's any other company that offers the same function? It doesn't need to be toggleable with a button as they are on the Logitechs.
Sensor doesn't matter and neither does shape. I'm just getting it for D3. I was thinking there might be some kind of cheap chinese knock off with the same function for like 15 bucks or so.
While the M500 is cheap, it's not as cheap in my country to justify the cost honestly. I've been scouring Ebay and the cheapest i've found is about €25, which is probably the route i'm going to go but before i bite the bullet i wanted to make sure there isn't anything cheaper. Again, sensor and shape does not matter.
Thanks!

Nope, it's a Logitech proprietary feature.

I figured. I was thinking perhaps there were some kind of mouse with such a bad scroll wheel it had the same quality as the infinity scroll.
I recall way back when that some mice (which ones i do not remember) started exhibiting "infinity scroll"-like qualities after heavy use.
But yea, looks like i'm going with the m500 then. Thanks!

you can hack the mouse and remove the "tac-tac" mechanism
but
1- it's irreversible (or "it will take a lot of more time compared to a button press")
2- feasible only with optical encoder

Hm okay, i'll have to open up one i have. I actually got a E-Blue a couple of months ago because the shape was similar to the old Razer diamondback/Pro 1.6.
I was going to use the shell and mod in a 3360 in it but there were some issues.

Honestly, how can i tell if it has a optical encoder? I've seen this being thrown around but it's one of those things about mice i've never looked into much (the scroll wheel that is).
You got any tips for doing this btw?
And if the mouse does not have a optical encoder, what's used instead?
Really want to learn this stuff!

no luck

however you can soften the tac-tac flattening (or at least trying) the metal plate with thin tweezers
