Out of the Blue

Some recent flaky behavior from my mouse has gotten worse, as the left button has gone from occasionally releasing in spite of being held down to frequently double-clicking on a single click. This Logitech G500 isn't that old, I dug around and see that I got it barely a year ago to replace another Logitech mouse which also started demonstrating flaky left-click behavior. I guess I have discovered their point of weakness, at least for someone who uses the mouse button a million times a day, though the amount of rodent abuse I tend to commit has me wondering whether or not I'm entitled to be disappointed at having to replace this so soon (my previous mouse lasted a few years). I love the action and ergonomics of this one, so I'll probably go for another and hope it survives better. I recall once having mouse drivers that recorded a history how far the mouse has been moved. It would be interesting to see the results if they still did that.

Yup my Razer Copperhead had the exact same problem after less than a year of heavy use. My Logi G5 has been rock steady for like five years.

I heard that Logis after the G5 had build quality issues...

Ya, I've had the same issue with two of my Razer mice. A third is still going strong, but my Logitech has had no problems.

I'm a lefty, so my mice options are a bit limited.
