    Mouse Double Click..

    Today I called Logitech to replace a M510 wireless mouse under warranty for the left button double clicking when single clicking.
    I purchased this mouse 8/5/2011...

    I have bought mice over the years from Microsoft, Logitech and other well know brands and have never had one last more then a year before the left button starts acting up....

    Is this only me or do others have similar problems with mice not lasting for long ???

    I know the left button gets the most use but to minimize it I use the scroll wheel for double clicking and one of the left side buttons for back spacing in my browser...

    Is this stuff just all the same junk no matter what price you pay for it?

    My first mouse was some obscure make from Outer Mongolia or somewhere - the left button did wear out and I got myself a Microsoft wheel mouse. I've used it ever since and it's showing no sign of trouble yet. I can't remember how long ago I bought it, but a wheel mouse was a bit of an innovation at the time and I didn't think I'd even use the wheel!

    Well, I have a couple of mice from the early 90's and I think they still work...

    I guess the quality leaves a lot to be desired today..
    They charge 30 or 40 bucks for a mouse that probably cost them about 2.00 to make so I guess they don't care if they replace them on warranty.
    Most people will just get a new one and not go for a warranty replacement..

    A sad comment on the times we live in, but true, alas. Built-in redundancy.

    Fortunately Logitech does have a nice warrantee on their mouse. I also recently had to replace a mouse with an identical problem.

    Logitech G10 gaming mouse still working well for the last 5 years.The Microsoft mouses usually hold up well to punishment too.

    I did a search on the Logitech support forum and 'Left Button failure' seems to be a common problem.

    Yes Clint, I have heard of mice lasting a long time like your but I am not part of that group.

    You are using your finger to trigger the left button? Not a sledge hammer?
