I have been using a Performance mouse for the last several weeks because my Revolution after working it to death doing heavy CAD work for 4.5 years finally died. I am a big fan of Logitech Products and there are at least 6 within arms reach as I type this and more somewhere behind me, but nothing has come close to frustrating me and driving me crazy as this particular mouse. It has frustrated me so much that after paying $114.00 for it 4 weeks ago I order a Revolution from Amazon and had to pay $150.00 for it. After reading other post on this particular mouse it will not be long before the buttons fail as I have read they do.
If anyone knows how to make the buttons less sensitive I would greatly appreciate the information.
Logitech, you guys make great products, but I am sorry to say that this particular one is terrible. People buy mouse's with programable buttons for a reason, some game related but I would guess more are work related. Either way they need to work. This venture has cost me close to $300.00 by the time you include the shipping charges and so on, not to mention the frustration and down time. That is a lot of money for a working mouse. Hopefuly by next Wednesday my Revolution will be here and all will be good.
Thanks in advance...

Did you keep the old Revolution? If so, you can fix it. I have two Revolutions sitting on a table next to me waiting for surgery. Both left-clickers crapped out right after the warranties expired. Replacement microswitches should arrive from China in just a couple weeks (5 pack for $5 shipped), then I break out the soldering gun. If all goes according to plan, the Performance MX then goes in a drawer as backup.

There seemed to be no problem with my old Revolution other than it was getting speratic with the reception I think from the sending unit. I bought a brand new one off of amazon after I made this post that is working like a charm. I paid through the nose for the unit, 150.00 but it was worth every penny, Unfortunately for me I am working 80 hours a week and have been for the last 9 weeks to get a very large oil refinery shut down, it was a bad time for my Revolution to die.
After I got the new Revolution, I thought I would save the Performance for my personal PC, it is just a flat out terrible mouse, doesn't click when you want it to and clicks everything in sight when it feels like it. Really doesn't matter anymore, its 4 weeks old and will not charge, what a waste of 114.00.
Thanks for letting me know that the Revolution can be fixed if need be.
By the way, I drove my Revolution into the ground over the last 4.5 years, I produce more than 1200' of piping, CAD drawings everyday, basically running with a mouse and 3 monitors, never had a lick of trouble with it, would imagine the average person doesn't come close to using their mouse that much in a life time.
Question, what's it going to take Logitecch to build a mouse that can be programmed and take that kind of abuse again without changing the positions of the buttons that were on the Revolution?
Thanks John B
