Any Free/Infinite Scroll Wheel Mice Besides G502?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have one that's broken and need a new mouse, but hate the form factor. However, after using the scroll wheel for so long, I can't do without the free scroll but can't seem to find other options that have it even in Logitech's lineup. I'd love to get a GPro/305, but there aren't options with the scroll wheel I'm looking for.

 

If anyone can provide any other options with this feature or confirm that there aren't any, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

there are a few mice with the infinite scroll wheel those beeing:

- MX master series

- MX anywhere

- M720

*though the mice above are productivity/office mice.

- G604

- G903/G900 

 

though dont get the G900, that thing is filled with problems.

Apparently it's also a 903 and 502 problem, and while it has gotten a lot of publicity, I've looked at quite a few reviews that have owned the product for that period of time and haven't had the issue and also seen plenty of threads with reliable fixes for the issue and also evidence that the warranty works just fine for the product. Given that I have a spare mouse as well, that wouldn't be an issue for me either. I'll look some more, if worse comes to worse, I may stick with what I've got or go with a 604, but no product is perfect. Even my 502 has a broken middle click after a few years, but you can just rebind the tilt to middle click and it functions almost the same.

 

Also found there's apparently a pretty simple lubricant fix for the switch click issue, though it remains to be seen whether I personally could get it to work if I were to get that issue in that situation.

afaik, the new ones are less likely to experience this issue.

 

forgot to mention that iirc the G900 doesnt last as long as the new one.

@Oswin Hard to say what you mean by new, as I see threads discussing fixes for this problem as recent as a year ago. Do you just mean 502 and 903? I've never had the problem on 502, and can't seem to find any differentiation for models of a "newer" 903, but I may just not know what to look for. At any rate, given the prices and the 2 year warranty and the time frame of the problem, I may just take my chances on the 900 given how much cheaper I can get the product versus a 903.

yes i did mean the G903 and G502, the G903 had two versions one with a 3366 and one with a HERO sensor.

 

cant really know if your mouse doubleclicks or not, though just a reminder, it wont happen with every unit.

Nearly every model starts to double clock 6-12 months after purchase. 

Had this problem with mine. 

 

I was able to replace the switches in it. Cost me about $4. I replace them with switches that have a more actuation force, now it's my favorite mouse I have ever owned. (Don't tell my 13 year old MX518...) I still love you bby. You are just old.

Where'd you get those? That's probably what I'll do if it happens and warranty is a hassle.

I got these from Digikey It's not the easiest thing in the world and takes some soldering, but totally worth it.
