Maybe one of their mouse mats? (I don't know if they are any better than their other products, just trying to help here)

Already got a Steelseries XXL and a Razer Overwatch Goliathus as my backup.

I know this is just giving them more money with the same service issues, but I've always wanted to try an orbweaver, personally.

I was leaning that direction, I'm just loathe to reinstall synapse. But I'm really just whining at this point, so whatever.

Some of their products aren't bad, maybe you can find one of those and sell it to someone else.

I updated LGS and now it asks me to update my G102 every time I boot my PC and I can't access the DPI levels. Is there a way of turning this off? I don't want to update mouse firmwares.

Hi guys, my Razer DA for lefties scrollwheel broke after about a year. I decided to 'repair' it myself but while trying to I also damaged some wires connected to both main buttons..

Now I've decided to never get a Razer again I am thinking of getting the Steelseries Sensei 310 or a Zowie ZA. I am mostly a lefthanded palm user and I don't care much about fancy lights and stuff, I do prefer some thumb buttons.

It's hard getting a good lefthanded (unambiguous is fine if it has thumb buttons on the right side, gently caress you Steelseries with your 'unambiguous Rival600) mouse for some serious first person shooting (i am beyond bad but I like decent gear). Anyone using these mice or does anyone can advice me on a third alternative? (The G900 is crazy expensive over here)

Thanks in advance!

My dad has asked for a wireless mouse as a gift and I was wondering which would be the best one to go for. I've been looking at either the Logitech MX Master 2S or Logitech M720 Triathlon, but reading through the thread it seems like Logitech doesn't have the greatest reputation.

It would be for office style use and preferably wouldn't be covered in lights or an overwhelming number of buttons. High expected lifetime would be a big plus.

Edit: I'm in the UK in case that makes a difference.

Don't you realize that being nice just makes you get hurt?


Logitech mice have a good reputation, and forums poster Goo is reminding people to take actual hardware issues to customer support so they get corrected within warranty like a good friend. Also you gotta keep in mind most people who post issues are doing so out of Ďhey what can I do?í You more rarely hear the people coming back after multiple years of use just checking in to say it still works.

Iíve only owned Logitech mice lately. If you want a bulky wireless, Iíd throw the 602 in for consideration. Cheaper than the MX 2S, missing the side scroll whee but has six thumb buttons. I bound two to scroll left & right. So far that has kept me from buying a MX 2S for now. I dunno a good portable wireless, but donít cross Logitech out they are very reliable.

I agree with 162. I currently have 7 Logitech mice in my possession across various computers and set-ups. Some are .... old to say the least. They just work.

I like my Orbweaver, it's a step up from their previous model (Tartarus I think?). I'm not much of a gamer but I've used it with Diablo 3 and Witcher 3, I use it for a lot of other software, anything that requires lots of hotkeys.

I was looking to get a new mouse, and I was wondering what the real difference is between the Razer Deathadder and the Mamba. I was planning on sticking with Razer since I'm comfortable using Synapse- wasn't a fan of it originally, but now that I'm using it across several setups, I'm not too bothered by it. I had some Logitech mice years and years ago and wasn't too impressed, but I was also looking at the Logitech G pro gaming mouse. What's the software like for binding keys to the mouse buttons?

Anecdotally, I have two G502s, one for each work and home, and they are nearing 4 years old without issue besides the cables just now becoming a little frayed up.

Less anecdotally, when I used to do more hardware testing, Logitech mice were consistently among the most well built and durable mice we would run through. Cheap mice are cheap. Razer and Steelseries ended up on the same platform of 'eh / 10'. Zowie seemed to end up maybe a notch above Steelseries, but we never really had enough on the floor to get good numbers. Logitech ended up ruling them all by a long shot, generally with cable failure being cited as the primary issue after 4 - 6 years as opposed to mechanical failure in the mice themselves claiming their useful life.

Traditionally, Logitech's support is also quite good, although there are some reports in this here thread that that is slipping.

I haven't tried the M720 but I got the MX Master to see if I liked it for general use and found a lot of things I found weird about it. I was considering one as a gift to my father but when he tried mine he didn't like all the buttons and the oddly placed gesture function button. The side to side scrollbar is also a little odd. I think I posted more about it earlier in the thread. Anyway, I'd look at the Performance MX or maybe give the M720 a shot. The MX Master seems like it's the kind of mouse that if you get used to the features it has then you better buy 5 more because one day they'll stop making it and you won't be able to find them again short of ebay scalpers.

Absolutely. I've been loyal to Logitech for like 15 years except for this period a couple years ago where it seemed like they were going the heavy wireless hybrid route without focusing on great sensors or things that gamers actually want. They are very customer focused and also care a lot about product design.

I was born ready. I'm Ron Fucking Swanson.

All I want from Logitech is to take the G700s, update the internals and release it at a reasonable price. I have never had a mouse feel more perfect to me, but after 5 or so years, the sensor is performing like poo poo and it won't hold a charge for poo poo. I could replace it with another new G700s but that would be north of $200 for what is a very out of date mouse technologically.

I just wish more mice were made for people like me. I want a nice ergonomic shape that fits my monster hands, 4+ thumb buttons, nice tracking but I will never be good enough again at games to notice the difference between a mouse with 2000 dpi and 20k dpi.

Also heavy, I like heavy.

I just ordered myself a G602, it looks like the closest thing to what I had on the market, I hope it works out for me.

I just don't understand why all the best mice on the market have exactly 2 thumb buttons, no more.

I donít understand why the G602 is completely unavailable in my part of the world.

Cool, thank you for all the responses! Clearly I had got the wrong end of the stick. The M720 looks very promising.

I've had a microsoft intellimouse since 2003 that won't loving die. I'd really like to get a G502 once this thing finally dies, someday. Same with my keyboard, some $20 microsoft shitter from 2003 that still works just fine so I can't be bothered to replace it with a nice mechanical one.

Hey Goo, I have a question if you happen to see this. Does Logitech sell de-serialized refurbished products? I ask because I bought a G502 Core "Manufacturer refurbished" listing off a well-rated ebay merchant, and I looked online to make sure Logitech does sell refurbed products. However, the mouse they shipped me is not what I would describe as refurbished but used (and abused), and it has the serial tag cut. I'm pretty sure I should report the seller to ebay but I just want to make sure that I'm not loving over someone legitimate. I put in a support ticket but it seems like it won't get answered before my options expire on ebay so I figured I'd ask you.

Alright, who let Rube Goldberg in here?


I have a g700s that has a dead spot on the scroll wheel and the right button switch is failing. Does anyone know of a mouse with a similar shape and preferably 4 buttons on the side? I guess I could live with 2 though. I was excited to see a g703, but it looks like a g403, but wireless, which is disappointing.

If you feel like voiding your warranty to stem the tide for just a little bit longer (assuming it hasn't already expired) giving the mouse wheel a clean can bring it back to life. Fuzz builds up in the ratchet mechanism, and can cause a dead spot.

The right microswitch, though, that's a solder job, and usually the harbinger of Disconnect, Reconnectitis.
