Meant to post this earlier but the forum kept having spasms...

In fairness my MX700 lasted 4 years. I only replaced it because I wanted the DiNovo set I have now, not because it broke. But of course, as with everything some people have problems some people don't - you got a bad one, I didn't. Not having a moan at you there Shint, just saying that it's not just experiences with the brand (one product bad, another product good), two people with the exact same product can still have two completely different experiences.

Although I did have one problem which was the same as you - the 'back' of the mouse where I held it with my (usually sweaty) palm was pretty much bare plastic by then, not silver, so that is one problem with the MX700 we both shared lol. Not an important one when you think about it really, but someone at Logitech did need a slap for not clicking onto the idea that "wrong type of paint/dye/whatever + years use and sweat = no paint".

Don't have that problem with my MX1000 though, that's still the color should be. :)

Only thing that annoys me about my Logitech keyboard/mouse is that I've been having problems playing F.E.A.R. (as in getting something like 3fps no matter the detail settings), and after some digging it turns out the combination of SetPoint, Vista and nVidia drivers screws the game up. SetPoint causes the actual problem but it's something to do with the mix of all 3 (i.e. XP, nVidia and SetPoint works fine as does Vista, ATi and SetPoint, or Vista and nVidia alone, but not the 3 combined). Would take the software off but my set doesn't really work too well without the software.

@BS Try the newest SetPoint software, they dont have it on their website but see if you can find an ISO of the G9s software CD, its a far cry improvement from the older version of SetPoint. But yeah, most logi products don't work to their full extent without SetPoint - so you may aswell buy an IBM keyboard and mouse

$50-60 for a mouse pad? WTF are you smoking? People that buy crap like that should be shot. Theres nothing a $60 pad can do that a $15 everglide cloth pad can't do.

Just googled, the eXact Mat X was 45$ USD RRP when released, its now around $30. Eh who cares lol, I ONLY got it for the wrist rest, which is just pure wicked (No stores had just wrist rests) I'm strongly opposed to Mice pads tbh, just take up room and the like, but you can't use the wrist rest without the pad thus I use the pad.

OfficeMax and Best Buy have plenty of standalone wrist guards, without an actual mouse pad attached.

Sgt. D. Pilla;4954528Unless its Acer...you get nowhere being nice to Acer :P Scream, Swear and talk to their managers, THEN you get service lolShin

Off topic, but brings me to remember a few days ago when my friend needed drivers from Acer's site, it only gave an average of 50kb/s. I just tried it again, and it averaged at 140kb/s. I usually cap at 700kb/s. Not a big issue, but when it's a 150 mb, file and your friend is in a hurry, that's the time Acer needs to get higher bandwidth.

On topic: $50 for a mousepad? I have nice, solid cloth mousepad that works great, when it's clean that is. I have no idea how much it cost though.

An update to this, they replied this time and told me what I already knew - hardware problem. The mouse needs to be replaced. So they acted like "We'll get on the replacement if you're under warranty". lol, I know I'm not. So what now? I emailed them asking what to do since I'm not under warranty. Also, the calling is not possible with them. Logitech's support number is a 646 number which is definitely not toll free. Their Canadian number is an 800 number but not the American one. lol, I dunno if I called their Canadian division if it would do me any good though. Looks like they're basically gonna tell me tough luck and do nothing. I'll still wait on a response but I'm pretty sure that's what it'll be. I'll just need to fork over some money and buy a new mouse.

If your mouse is under 3yrs old its under warranty. THIS is why people need to keep the packaging from hardware/peripherals. BTW, if you have a cell-phone calling a 646 # shouldn't be a problem since you'd be calling NYC. Also, you might want to check Target out if you'd be interested in getting another mx518. They had them for $30 a few days ago and I was seriously tempted to buy a backup mouse.

I do have the packaging, I still have the box for it. It's the receipt I don't have. I bought it at CompUSA and when they went out of business I pitched the file with all their receipts. What good does it do me to keep receipts to a company that doesn't exist anymore? I'd be afraid to call their tech number if it might be a pay line. I know some companies still do that. Sony used to make their support line a pay one. Talk about a way to keep people from calling...

I know the G9 might look uncomfortable, but give it a try. It comes with two interchangeable grips, and there is a third available. It's a very comfortable mouse for palm-style and claw-style grips.
