My problem is that my computer mice always fail the same way - by malfunctioning main buttons!
I do buy expensive optical cordless mice from Logitech since decades now.
But it's always the same:
First the left mouse button "breaks" (1), then I try to shift most actions to the right one (2), then both of them get unusable. Finally I have to buy another expensive branded product.
(1) By "breaking" I mean defective, loose or even chattering contacts which sometimes fire without my intention to hit the button, reforming single clicks into double or multiple clicks, losing contact while I try to draw something across the screen. ... I think you'll get the picture.
(2) Despite tools or settings to switch the functionality between both main buttons there's mostly the possibility to use context menus or even to use both buttons interchangeably, e.g. if you're working on Android emulators.]
A malfunctioning mouse button like explained can be at least bothersome in some games where you die a lot more often due to these issues - but outside games it can be really dangerous, clicking on arbitrary buttons, choosing options you wouldn’t want to touch, double-clicking things you only want to select, dropping files or other objects to wrong places (Recycle Bin?)!
I really do not want to look at my branded computer mouse as some kind of consumable. I also hit the buttons of my keyboard very often (even if this distributes to much more of them), but I can still use my first keyboards, decades later!
What I’ve done (despite repurchasing):
I’ve already researched the matter of chattering mouse buttons but only found instructions to open the case and try to clean the micro-switches. But with my current Logitech laser mouse I cannot do this. Maybe the sliding points hide the screws. I cannot remove them, because this would destroy the material and I do not know where to get replacement sliding points.
So, to summarize my overall question:
Is there a big manufacturer which produces better quality mice with a higher life expectancy of the buttons than Logitech products?
(I’m not interested in small producers with only local availability.)
