My first "Gaming mouse" Was some old HP mouse that had the same internals as the WMO.... I have actually searched for it to try and find one for nostalgia sake but can't find it. It was grey with dark blue buttons. Sort of like a WMO shape if you made the front more rounded. Either way, used to dominate with that mouse in UT2k4 and BF2</div>
</div>
I do not think there was anything else manufactured with MLT04 apart from 4 known mice.

That's why it's such a mystery to me. I am almost certain that it had the same internals as the WMO because I took it apart back in the day and it looked the same.

It was ALL manufactured in China hence anything goes there.<br><br>
Wouldn't be surprised at all that THEY had installed the MLT04 sensor into a variety of HP, Dell, IBM or even Acer input devices over the years, when the MLT04 was first aired by MS.<br><br>
Remember the MLT04 was a plain office mouse sensor, before they realized what it actually was and what it delivered to the gaming community <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> .

It was popular among some people, but it was insignificant to microsoft and they did not marketed it to gaming community.<br><br>
And I can see no reason for other vendors to use MLT04 over some other cheap alternatives, especially when 400cpi became uncomfortable for work in high resolutions.

Next time I am at my parents house I will go through some boxes and see if I can find it. I just remember taking a WMO apart at some point and then took that one apart because I was curious and it looked like they had the same or very similar internals. I didn't know anything about PCBs back then though so I may not have known what I was looking at. I remember buying a Logitech G5 gaming mouse at some point and ended up switching back to the HP mouse because I did way better with it. Could have just been because it was light and was a good shape.

I used each of the following mice for several years:<br><ul class="bbcode_list"><li>Intellimouse Optical</li>
<li>MX Revolution (the very first one ever released)</li>
<li>DeathAdder 3.5g</li>
<li>G9x</li>
</ul><br>
Nowadays I would not be able to use either of the Logitech mice due to their weight. I still have a brand new unopened G9x that I've thought about selling, but can't seem to bring myself to doing it. It was a replacement mailed from Logitech but I was impatient and had bought a new one in-store while waiting for it to come in, so it's just been sitting in the back of a closet for years.</div>
</div>
<br>
The G9x value is only going to go higher and higher as supply dwindles down. I'd probably never sell a new and sealed G9x. I still have in my possession a sealed in box Logitech Wingman gaming mouse. <img alt="redface.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/redface.gif">

You forgot that during all of that, the supply of suckers willing to pay exorbitant prices will also dwindle down to nothing.

NEVER happen on Flebay......ever <img alt="lachen.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/lachen.gif"> .<br><br>
You will always get some who believe the hype posted on sites such as here.<br><br>
Nothing wrong with that, just like old IBMs, Acers, Dells and Apple keyboards that have risen in price, simply due to postings by nerds promoting them.
