      I’ve had mine for three years and it still works perfectly. Stop smashing the mouse with your fat American ogre hands, you stupid fuck.

        Replace the switches it costs like $2 and won’t happen again because you can put ones that are actually properly rated for micro current loads. Garbage logitech engineering.

        It has nothing to do with how you click. It’s an engineering design flaw with incredibly high premature failure rate.

          yeah, it would be pretty easy to salvage this thing with switch swap but it’s pretty frustrating when they go for omron 20Ms when they could just bump up the price for a little bit and go with kailh or ttc switches

            they found switches that fail right after the warranty ends, causing most people to go buy another product. clearly it’s intentional.

          Is there a mod for the mouse wheel, middle click is hard to do without side scroll being triggered, otherwise the mouse is woke af.
          The original didn’t have that problem (but the middle click was absurdly hard on that one)

            The G502 uses a proprietary mechanism for its infinite scroll thing, utilizing an optical sensor. So modding it isn’t like other mice. They do sell entire replacements of the scroll mechanism for like $10-15 on ali (when you see how complex it is you’ll understand why) but m3 issues are most likely related to the microswitch itself.
            iirc the g502 uses one of those like 2ish mm tall 6x6mm switches for the middle click. Those switches just kinda suck and fail sometimes. I’ve had luck with some g502’s before taking them apart and just rapidly cycling or hard pressing the switch from inside. Otherwise you gotta grab a switch off ali and solder it in probably. They’re like $1.

          yea I mean I’ve taken excellent care of this mouse and I never have hardware problems in general. now I have to set right click to left click to get through the day since I don’t have a backup mouse right now.

          You don’t even need to replace the switch. Disassemble it, polish the parts the make contact so they’re free of oxidation, optionally give the spring a slight bend so it’s a little stiffer, wa wal. Got my doubleclicking g500s back in working order and I didn’t have to solder anything or order parts.

          The tl;dw of the video is that with the new and "improved" switches, the moving contacts are mechanically stiffer thus more chatter and bounce compared to the old switches with deforming contacts matched with low polling rate and longer debounce time which results to not registering the unintended double clicks. Also, old mice with cheap switches are rated at higher electrical loads and in no need of gayming software shit

                More like what’s he’s discussing in the beginning and how to relates to what he says later. The switches in an old ass logitech and a new one are for the most part the exact same. What causes double click is accelerated wear because of improper voltage that causes oxidation and therefore debounce issues because the polling rates of modern mice is incredibly high and logic voltage low. Basically they need to use the proper switch for high polling rate mice and drive the switch current up. The stiffness has nothing to do with it. The contact deform just the same with old switches. If you look at any used old ass logitech you will see worn to fuck contacts and stiff springs but they will work regardless.

      That’s why I use a cheap 4 dollar logitech mouse.
      I double clicks after 6 months, but given the cheap price I can just replace it twice a year and still would cost me less than an expensive meme mouse.

      4 dollars every 6 months, that’s 40 dollars for the 5 years I’ve been doing this
      Your expensive mouse will last 5 years, but that’s 100+ dollars.

      Find me a mouse that will match the value of 40 dollars : 5 years.

      Protic: you can’t.

        You’re also using a shitty mouse for 5 years compared to someone using a good mouse for 5 years. Some people care about performance and experience. Also, complaining about £100 over 5 years, what kind of poorscrotegery is this?

          Obviously he’s not gaming if he’s using a mouse like that, but I can’t even use mice with cheap sensors like that on the desktop casually with modern high refresh rate monitors. When LCD’s sucked it didn’t bug me. Kek logitech won’t even disclose what sensor is in the mouse he posted and you can get chink mice with pixart 3325’s for like $20 all day long. Totally livable sensor if you don’t have a super sensitive mousepad.

        I bought a G604, it gave me double click after one year.

        Logitech sent me a G502 wireless as replacement.

        Replaced the switches, now I have two good mouse for the price of a single one.

                        I have a theory that the older ones with the pixart sensor were a lot closer to being within spec than the newer hero sensor models.

                        Modern mice run like 1 volt or below. The model of Omron in these mice are rated for 5 volt minimum. There’s a combination of things going on which causes the problem:
                        – Insufficient wetting current makes them stop self-cleaning. They’re supposed to knock off corrosion as they operate.
                        – Cheap silver plating is not as mechanically durable as gold plating. Also the switches do not use very much of it only a thin strip.
                        – Cheap design leads to the switch surfaces marring themselves up, blowing the coating off, and eventually getting direct metal to metal contact. This can be avoided with a riveted design and applying coating to a larger area. Omron makes a switch like this, rated for this purpose in their other factory. A few of them actually. They’re rather nice and it’s not Omron’s fault people are using their switches wrong.
                        – On older mice running proprietary chips etc none of that shit matters because there’s enough wetting current that your switch can look disgusting under a microscope and work just fine. This gave the switches a reputation for reliability in mice like the MX518.
                        – On newer mice they’re often under like 1 volt and this doesn’t happen. Wireless exists and nobody is making purpose built chips for a mouse. Sensors for all mice wired or not are designed around power consumption, mice use generic chips, etc. There’s reasons that are all generally ascribed to improvements in mice. It’s not planned obsolescence like some say.
                        – Much like 1990’s Hondas or something, people ascribe the reputation from the old mice to the new ones not understanding the engineering, which is a big factor why it’s not entirely logitech’s fault either that their customers want the switches.
                        – But they’re the wrong switches shouldn’t be used in modern mice and there are many better appropriate choices off the shelf that simply plug and play into existing hardware. Also opticals, but they have a ways to improve.

                        None of that’s theory, the theory part is

                        limit cont.

                        , the theory part is that the older g502’s were a lot closer to the operating spec for chinese Omrons and like the older mice, don’t give a shit how mangled the contacts get. It probably won’t be within spec but it’ll be a lot closer.
                        Which would explain why there’s always people saying they’ve had G502 a very long time with no issues when so many people do. And give the mouse’s fanboys an option to at least know that if they can find an old one deadstock it will be a G502 you can use worry free without being into modding.

                        Alright, so I connected COM to COM and V to NO. I get a voltage of -3.27 (negative 3.27) when I don’t press the switch and it jumps to 0 voltage when I connect the switch.
                        COM to COM and V to NC I get 0.0v when I don’t click and -0.2v when I click the switch.

                        Confirmed for all 5 switches on the mainboard, the 3 blue switches on the daughter-board are a different type of 4 PIN switch of which I don’t know the pin-out.

                        Can post pictures but that’ll take a hot minute because I need someone to take the picture for me while I hold the pins down.

                        Yep that confirms it, the pixart sensor G502’s are unaffected. It’s not within rated spec but it’s at least in the same galaxy.

                        Modern mice use 3.3v logic, which isn’t great for switch conductivity. Older ones used 5v logic, and usually at much higher current.
                        Most of the switches that cheap-ass manufacturers like Logitech use are rated for, at an absolute minimum, 100mA @ 5V. There are more suitable switches rated for 1mA @ 5V, but nobody uses those because they cost half a cent more or whatever, and the only physical difference is some gold plating that’ll probably wear through after a few tens of thousands of activations and leave you with an effectively 100mA switch anyway.
                        A Logitech G502 runs that 100mA @ 5V minimum rated switch at…under 0.1mA @ 3.3v nominal, in actual fact slightly lower voltage because of voltage drop. Yes, over 1000 times less amperage than rated, and at insufficient voltage to boot.

                        Also, manufacturers are too freaking lazy/stupid to connect up both the Normally Open and Normally Closed contacts

                        COM NO NC

                        , so the mouse only detects a click when NO is closed. Once you start getting shitty contact, the NO signal gets rough and starts losing connection when physically closed, leading to double click/click and drag issues. What they should be doing is hooking up both contacts, and registering a click in the microcontroller as soon as NO is detected, then holding that click no matter what until NC is received. I’ve seen people scratch off the traces on the PCB and hook up a little daughter board between the switch and the microcontroller to simulate this and it works great.

                        There’s a couple reason for both of these stupid decisions; the first is that they both increase power draw, which is totally irrelevant for a wired mouse, but not great for wireless battery life. The second is, of course, planned obsolescence, because if both of these techniques were used, even the cheapest, shittiest switches manufacturers could buy would last 15 years.

                        cont’d
                        I was dumb enough to buy a G502 a couple years ago, both primary switches started failing within 6 months. Got a replacement under warranty, that one also failed after about 6 months. Ended up buying a pack of Honeywell ZX10C30A01 switches from ebay for like 10 bucks, because I like the unique design (https://youtu.be/NhhRTUrz0R8?t=730), and soldering the new switches into both mice. So far the replacements have outlived the originals by a few months and are still working fine.

                        Oh, by the way I worked out that humidity significantly affects a failing Omron switch, so just blowing gently into the mouse through some opening like the scroll wheel will raise the humidity inside the switch enough that a failing switch will usually work correctly for about 5 minutes. I bet all these "works for me" mogoloids just have sweaty hands.

                        lol oops

                        I haven’t seen any proof of newer G502s running at 1v or whatever as claimed, but both of my wired G502s with the Hero sensor are still 3.3v and both of them still failed.
                        As far as I can tell, Logitech has been attempting to address the issue of failing Chinese Omron D2FC-F-K switches by replacing them with increasingly longer lifespan rated versions of the same switch, iirc they went from just "D2FC-F-K" to "D2FC-F-K (10M)" to "D2FC-F-K (20M)" to now "D2FC-F-K (50M)", and with each iteration the problem just gets worse. Physically I think the difference is that the rivet that goes in the leaf spring that actually makes contact is a little harder in each successive variant. Clearly this strategy has not been working, and indeed seems counterproductive as the newer switches prove progressively more problematic.

                        Currently disassembling it.
                        So explain me your suspicion again, you’re saying the new ARM equiped mice are running undervolted and that is harming the switches somehow?
                        Did I get that right?

                        Dissambled it, ground goes to COM, but where do I put the other pin? I guess when I click it, it does to NO and to NC when I don’t click it.

                      I have a theory that the older ones with the pixart sensor were a lot closer to being within spec than the newer hero sensor models.

                  You’re basically just slightly increasing the window before it fails again. And half the time it doesn’t work at all. What model of mouse is it? If it’s some 15 year old model like a MX518 that trick will work because they used to run purpose built chips and higher voltage. Modern mice are on arm usually now and way lower voltage/current so just cleaning the contacts won’t fix shit. The switch was out of spec and inappropriate for the application when it was made. The proper switch from Omron’s japanese factory costs the exact same as the wrong one they used.

Logitech is quality out of the box but has poor engineering leading to incredibly high failure rates usually right outside the warranty period.

        The D2F-01 is slightly taller.

      I’ve had excellent luck with my G502, but I just recently bought their G600 MMO mouse for FFXIV and what a piece of shit.

      Their website advertises that it uses the Ghub software. It is not compatible with Ghub because the mouse is freaking old and out of date. I tried three times to open Ghub with the mouse plugged in, and each time it crashed my computer. So I had to find and install their older Logitech Gaming Software. Why? Because despite advertising "on the fly DPI switching," you can only change the DPI with software, and the default DPI is something like 400.

      But if I leave the software running outside of XIV, it causes strange issues where the right click and middle click don’t function properly. And it caused a DirectX crash in XIV because somehow my audio device was changed from my speakers TO THE freaking MOUSE.

          You know, I’ve had plenty of mice throughout my adventures, but I’ve only had cheap ones fail. Double click, right click not working, or scroll wheel failure. No name brand mice. Mice over $100 have N E V E R failed. I’d say maybe even ones over $50, but I don’t know. Magic Mouse has been the most durable. Not sure how much credit you want to give to a mouse that has the entire top as a single clickable button though. Kinda hard to fail, huh?

      What should I expect? I’m a bit concerned about the battery. How often will I need to buy batteries and will it still be lightweight with an eneloop battery?

      Never owned a wireless mouse, are you supposed to switch them off when not using them? And when they are rated for 450 hours, does that mean 450 hours worth of clicks and moving. Or as in I will need to change batteries every 18 days (450/24hrs>

        Wireless mice go to sleep after about a minute. No need to worry about turning them off. Most modern wireless mice have good battery life if you don’t turn on RGB. You can expect about at least a month of heavy use before you get the low battery blip. Depending on the mice you can stretch that to 3 months.

      I have an OG 502 I bought in 2014; I’ve used it for thousands of hours without fault, I love this thing.

      Was thinking about upgrading to the lightspeed now that a charger dock is out for that, but this thread has made me hesitant that it might not be as well built as the original.

        it’s much better built overall and the wireless/battery is amazing, you just need to swap out the switches when they break.

          Neat, amazed that Logitech couldn’t put out their own dock for it though and the aftermarket had to do it for them.

            it’ll probably be the next "must buy" minor upgrade to the model at a $50 premium in a year or two

              Nah they want people to use their wireless charging matts, which are garbage.

      I’ve only had this problem with my Deathadder 2013, G052 is still fine for the moment. Blowing humid air underneath doesn’t seem to help M1/M2 not holding down at times. I just don’t want to tear out these slick stickers underneath the mouse.

        walmart is the best for this, just don’t try it with a 3rd party reseller because they will check the serials

          should I order them now, in advance or something? I can solder well but my experience taking apart things like mice or controllers is that usually I fuck them up permanently

      I have really big hands and use a standing setup so I need my mouse to be wireless. The current mouse I have is just too small for my hand and it causes my hand to be in a lot of pain from it. What are your thoughts on vertical mice? I’ve heard they are much better for your hand. My main concern is that it would be hard to play video games with one. If not a vertical mouse, any recommendations for a good ergonomic mouse meant for people with large hands?

        I have large hands and I’ve never found a mouse that actually fits my hand so just gave up and switched to light mouses
