Slight problem with my g502 hero?

So i've had it for about a year and a half now and i noticed recently that when i only hold the buttons down 50% of the way they flicker between on and off. why? and also i cant remember if this is how it was brand new when i bought it because i do remember it felt weird at first but i got used to it. i dont mind using more force to hold down a button but should i be worried that something is broken? i only noticed this recently when i was thinking about something while dragging around a window and noticed it kinda stuttered then did a mouse test online and i saw that when i held the buttons down at 50% they flickered on and off. however the thing shouldnt be broken it feels and works like it brand new. And if it is broken please tell me some alternatives anyone. i do love the design and feel of this thing tho and i do need a few programmable buttons atleast the side buttons and the sniper button.

NOTE: i did some slight digging and found out logitech has quite a few problems with their switches. please tell me if its worth going for another logitech mouse or literally anything else? i can probably live without a sniper button but i need atleast 2 side buttons and 2 dpi setting buttons.

If its only a 1 1/2 years old, Logitech mouse warranty is usually 2 years so go and file an RMA. They should just send a new mouse out to you.

So? At least it still has a warranty. They have warranties for this reason for defects in materials/workmanship. Go and get an RMA and just keep it as a spare or sell it on the side for some money to put to another mouse.

You can always disable the button in Logitech G HUB for the time being. I've done that with my old G502 until it died. 

 

I've had a Corsair M65 Pro and that was a great mouse. The only issue was the mouse wheel broke as the axle Corsair used was plastic, so one side of the axle was sheared next to the wheel. I used a roofing nail cut down to size to fix that problem and still works. Albeit, its back in its box as I wanted to keep my rig the same brand (Logitech keyboard and mouse).

I have 2x G502's and a G903.

One G502 being over 2 years old, and no issues so far.

 

Razer is no better (if not, even worse) IMO...

The cable braid on my DeathAdder like disintegrated, and the left click is fudged...

Compare that to my ~10 year old Logitech G9x...

Mates i found a solution and a cheap one even! the ASUS ROG Strix Impact II it has hot swappable switches for gods sake. thats something every mouse should however it is only compatible with a few omron switches but atleast i dont have to solder shit to fix it.

I've personally seen so many people (including myself) have many problems with razer's stuff (my friend had 2 mice and a headset (all from razer) fail within a 2 year period), I had two razer keyboards have repeating key issues within the 18 month period, I just can't recommend them because of their terrible reliability.

Almost every gaming peripheral brand you can think of (Logitech, Razer, Corsair, Glorious, etc. etc.) use the same Omron switches in their mice so they are all potentially susceptible to these problems. I had a Corsair mouse last year that started doing it in about 3 months. I've heard people complain that the specific model switch Logitech likes to use is uniquely prone to this issue but I haven't seen any evidence for that. 

 

If you want to avoid dealing with this problem, or just minimize the frustration when it odes occur, then you could get a mouse with optical switches (like some of the Razer Basilisk and Viper line, or the Roccat Burst Pro), or get one of Asus's mice where the switches can simply be swapped out of their sockets without soldering.

Yeah ik, only few brands use their own switches like steelseries for example however i rather just grab a cheap asus gladious 2 or impact strix 2 and be able to swap the switches out whenever they break. And apparently most logitech g mice use their shit ass chinese omron switches.

SteelSeries switches are manufactured by Omron. So are the "Titan click" ones Roccat uses. It's a virtual monopoly. Zowie I think used Huano switches on some of their early mice and everybody complained they didn't feel good so now they're back on the Omron BS too.
