My Logitech G-Pro got hit last month, started double-clicking - luckily the G102 / G203 models were on sale for $15 at my local best buy, a good holdover until I can dig out my soldering iron out of the basementmaketecheasier said:High-end gaming mice have been malfunctioning at a much higher rate than normal lately. Browse through any gaming or hardware forum, and you are bound to encounter at least a few posts reporting premature issues with gaming mice.
The problems mentioned in these user accounts are invariably the same and are comprised of either dead or double-clicking switches. The overwhelming majority of defective micro-switches also seem to be manufactured by Omron. What makes matters worse is that Omron is generally the preferred micro-switch supplier for nearly all high-end gaming mice companies.
A Clear Case of Poor Quality Control
While one could argue that these forum reports could be a vocal minority amplifying acceptable margins of hardware failure rates, I have personally encountered the same Quality Assurance (QA) problem with two new mice this year alone.
Then there’s the fact that gaming-mouse-maker Zowie had to recall nearly its entire gaming mouse range on account of many users reporting premature double-clicking with the Omron switches. The company has since relied on Chinese micro-switch maker Huano to replace the problematic Omron parts.
Zowie isn’t the only manufacturer that has dropped Omron. Cooler Master’s brand new MM710 ultralight mouse also comes with Huano switches. Even Razer has launched its flagship wireless mouse equipped with in-house optical switches instead. Meanwhile, the Reddit and official support pages of brands that still use Omron switches, notably Logitech, are inundated with users reports of the same double-clicking problems.
For most products the reason you see many complaints is that the people that have an issue are usual vocal about it, very few buy something and go out of their way to say that it's working great. As a % it's likely the failure rate is no greater than any other product. There are not that many products where the issue is due to engineering or poor parts being used if you stick with the well known brands.I'm considering purchasing this mouse, but I've seen many complaints about double click problems. I wouldn't like to spend 100 bucks on a mouse that will die within a year or two.
I bought this mouse just about 14 months ago. It seems to be a pretty nice mouse BUT I started getting the intermittent left-mouse double-click about a year ago. It seems to only happen with this mouse on on this computer. I cannot recreate the issue with a different mouse. I cannot recreate the issue with this mouse on a different computer. Due to a SSD issue, I had to instal a new SSD and Windows OS. Even this did not solve or alter my issue. I'm totally stumped. I paid far too much money to get rid of the mouse. Everything in my system is pretty common/average gaming enthusiast hardware and software, nothing special or obscure. All drivers are up to date and I keep programs to an almost bare minimum.I'm considering purchasing this mouse, but I've seen many complaints about double click problems.
