Default I think I hate....

..........Logitech, what is up with that company? 3 days ago my Logitech wireless "marathon" mouse started the famous logitech double click issue. the mouse is not even 8 months old, used on a server, that I barelly use a mouse on, its basically always on. So I plugged in my 8+ year old Microsoft sidewinder backup mouse that still works, does the switches that logitech use in their mouse are really this cheap?

Little background story, I went though 2 G7 rodents, one G9 that also had the same issue. Now on G9x, I wonder how long that last.

Everytime a logitech mouse goes bad, I look back at the MS Sidewinder and wonder how come a 8 year old mouse is still working, while these logitech rodents keep crapping out.

And this sidewinder was my main mouse for 3-4 years, it really got punished in my Diablo/Diablo II playing period.

I've never found any of the stuff they made all that good. I've always used MS mouses and keyboards, but I told myself I would go logitech next time.

Anyway their speakers haven't been that good. the Z680's I had had stupid sub volume with no proper adjustment, then the back light on the display broke, then I had to attach a wooden brace to the control output cable from the sub otherwise it wouldn't work.

Z-5500's have been better, but the back-light on the display still died within a year. It does work sometimes, but more often it doesn't and sometimes it just flickers.

Anyway I used to hate the feel of their keyboards with a passion, and hated the design of everything they made (too round and cheap looking). Their newer stuff looks and feels better so I vowed I would buy it, but it sounds like the reliability is still an issue.

Does anyone make mice that don't look like spaceships riced up like they're in 2fast2furious?

I like the Logitech M950, but even it's almost too over the top. And yes, I do other things on my PC besides game so wireless is a good thing in my eyes.
