A mouse is very personal. And the fact is, I don’t like how most of the modern ones feel. This particular one, the Logitech G500, is about a decade old now (2009 release I believe). I don’t do much gaming, but I find gaming input devices very good for productivity and image editing. And us auties do NOT like change, so every time this mouse acts up, I repair it.
This one has taken quite a beating. Sometime around ~2014 or so the left click switch started acting up. So I dutifully found replacement Omron switches on eBay for a few bucks and soldered a new one in. It work perfectly until 2018, when the cable fray has gone too far and caused it to be glitchy. So once again, I went to eBay to find a new cord for less than 10 bucks.
The damage reached the wire itself and caused glitching
Brand new cord from eBay
Unfortunately, cord replacement requires pretty substantial disassembly
I carefully laid all the parts out as I removed them. Thankfully, the cord uses a connector and isn’t soldered.
Reassembled and it looks like new! (kinda lol). It sure does work like new. Another 10 years would make me happy!
