Intellimouse 1.1 optical, WMO and G3, are there any with updated switches?

preferably as original to shape as possible, or just with new good switches?

that you could order somehow?

The mlt04 mice all used japanese omron and were quite bulletproof. hongsund made an io1.1 reproduction but used chinese omrons and a mismatched ec10 wheel encoder.

this may be an alternative

they do not sell at moments, and quite expensive

its just that they are rated at 1m clicks

many other mice, does feel of a higher quality, i have 2-3 at home, and the quality is quite low compared to newer ones

as if you buy 1 new, the clicks are far less good?

You're not the first to complain about build quality, and the older microsoft mice mostly used pbt shells which have become rare due to cost cutting. It's better to move on and adapt to new shapes. zowie has quite a large lineup of small and large mice now.

I have quite a few ime 3.0 and wmo. From X06 to X08 to X80, None of them came with Japanese Omron switches.

Besides, WMO uses smaller square-shape micro switches that have only 2 terminals. But it can be easily replaced with normal omron switches without any difficulty.
Replacing the switches on WMO can noticeably reduce click latency.

Manage to run your games at 300+fps before you talk about mouse precision.
If you are still struggling to reach 100fps or if you are using some IPS/VA monitor, don' buy mice anymore. Save money and upgrade your whole rig.
If you don't know how to upgrade, just throw away your Ryzen 1st and 2nd gen, get latest Intel i7 i9 with "K", get 4000+MHz memory.

The pcb I made worked well and was a success, all the software bugs are ironed out at this stage. I found that the side buttons were difficult to align, either they wouldn't click or were bottomed out. The shell had issues due to the conversion.

The scroll wheel would rub in the upper shell, so i filed around it. middle click was very stiff. the first pcb i did had the sensor soldered low in the pcb, this caused the pcb to rise up. i avoided the issue in the second pcb by pushing the sensor pins up from underneath before soldering.

I was happy with it, but give it to a reviewer and he'd send it back. I never sold any of them, though I did gift an earlier one with the jkicklighter pcb away to dellor because i couldn't bear to rip it apart again. I used to watch his twitch streams occasionally. He broke it in a short time and i assume trashed it. It's against forum policy to sell items without paying a vendor fee.

In short, don't bother unless you want to spend a lot of time tinkering with it. the wmo mod would be a lot easier though, lacking side buttons. I've ordered a hongsund mamba clone (€6!) which is supposed to be the bees knees for larger hands like mine. I may make a pcb to fit it, if it don't die from coronavirus (I have asthma)

Yes, had collected a few over the years and they did indeed contain authentic 100% made Japanese omron switches, that were far superior to anything made today.
