My G602 wireless mouse has worked great since I've had it with my laptop, with one problem: I can scroll with my mouse but not click with it. This is an issue in some games like R6 Siege and Apex Legends which use clicking with the scroll wheel. What should I do to fix this?

First I'd make sure that it's actually bound in the profile. If that's not it, you've probably got a dead switch, but I would find it unlikely to have failed since that switch gets relatively so few clicks. Before concluding it's hosed, I'd be in there trying to blow it out with compressed air.

This is the best mouse pad I've ever owned.

Deathadder V2 Mini is out in Asia and possibly Oceania. Less than 60g; no holes. Tempted by it, although I'm happy with my Kone Pure Ultra so probably won't buyt it given the high price in dollarydoos. Deathadder itself was always a bit big.

Re mousepad chat, I've been pretty happy with the Coolermaster MP510. I was happy with the Roccat Sense Vital, but it lost its coating very quickly (a few months) and now I can't hit poo poo when I switch off to it while my MP510 is drying after a clean. From reading the Mousepad review subreddit, MP510 is one of the go-to middle of the road recommendations (maybe slightly on the faster side). Seems durable. I like the kind of rubbery feel to it, rather than a normal cloth feeling.

Hey Mionix get off your butt and reintroduce a decent NAOS. Also really fighting the urge to throw down $30 on a DM 2 Comfy Supreme if you're gonna announce something soon.

Has anyone tried this mouse out? I still have my Intellimouse 1.1 from ~18 years ago that are now suffering from typically double-clicking when I intend to single-click. I don't know how to fix the double-clicking problem, as it is probably a mechanical problem(?) I had bought 2 or 3 of them for like <30$ total back around 2000/2001; I think that I got my money's worth for sure.

So, I would like to get something similar: large mouse, side buttons, hopefully long life. I am not sure what to get; the Pro Intellimouse seems reasonable. Any other suggestions? I would prefer to try the mouse out in person before buying (especially with regards to size/grip), but it is looking like I will just have to buy it and find out.
I'm taking my own advice and just ordered one. I have larger hands and while the Rival 310 is comfortable enough, it's not the perfect size. Hopefully the Intellimouse Pro is exactly what I'm looking for. Will give a trip report in a couple weeks or whenever I pick it up.

Also taking your advice! While 32" would be perfect straight on for my main, the 36" width is long enough where I can angle it to include my work laptop's mouse too (which has terrible tracking problems on the bare desk forcing me to unplug/replug constantly). Thanks!

I hope you like it! I've never had a 5mm thick mousepad and it's so loving comfortable. I wish they made a 48 x 24 pad because I want to cover my entire desk in one.

coming from that one, the new one from gamer's nexus is superior. The weave is much tighter and smoother. Not as thick if that matters but less rubber smell

What are people's thoughts on ergonomic mouse pads? I bought a cheapo one a while ago and the memory foam seems dead already so I was looking at getting a new one. I'm willing to spend a little more this time since it did feel better than using no mousepad like I was before but I'm not what to get. Any suggestions?

Money's not a huge deal but I'm from Australia and not everything ships there.

Don't rest your wrist on your mouse pad. For most people ergonomic mousepads are a trap, encouraging bad hand positioning. You should raise/lower your desk/chair so that it's comfortable to bend just your elbow and not your wrist while holding your mouse. Pictures and explanation: Canada's OSHA

If your doctor has recommended you use one, ask them.

edit: oh yeah, actually wrist rests help with shoulder/neck pain if that's your concern, but if your wrists hurt it's probably because you're putting pressure on them

I just popped my mouse open to clean it (highly recommended, that poo poo was gross after 10+ years) but the scroll wheel is still binding. Is there anywhere that sells replacement wheels for an old MX518? Failing that, is there a kind of grease I can use to try to get scrolling to be consistent again?

if its all gunked up I would think you need a solvent to clean it out first. They actually make electronic safe stuff for cleaning mice and keyboards. Its fairly weak but you can really pour it on to flush out the crap

If you can find somewhere that sells it, I'm a big fan of the Allsop Wrist Assist instead of the traditional type of wrist rest.

Everyone calls them wrist rests but better usage involves resting the edge of your palm on it and not any part of your wrist.

The only wrist rest you need is a dumbbell. Don't do poo poo that gives you even worse RSI, just get swole and hoverhand all day like a true nerd.

The mouse wheel smoothed out after some use, I just cleaned it with a pick and a paper towel. When you say electronic safe solvent, do you mean IPA? I could use some for cleaning my keyboard.

IPA will probably work, I would use a heatgun or let it sit outside for a bit to make sure that small % of water doesnt stick around.
