I have had this mouse since I built my PC a few years back. It’s the best. I have a backup for the fateful day that it passes. Minecraft puts a hurting on that left click.

Mines still got a click sharp like a knife! What's your replacement after death of the great?

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, I have another 503 waiting. It’s a great mouse.

G502 is my all time favorite mouse, I even got the wireless edition last year. Have a wired one in storage just in case anything happens to mine and can't get a new wireless right away.

G502 LIGHTSPEED is really the best mouse ever.

Razor Diamondback retired after 17 years of usage. Logitech G502 Proteus Core.. Feels like a nother dimension. Can't help.. Even the sound feels like pure porn. Can you relate to this? Would like to listen to your story :) F for service. high five brother of PCMR :)

Surprised you made it last that long. I went through a Copperhead and a Diamondback in less than 2 years. Then 5 Deathadders over the next decade or so.

That's a lot. What you use now?

I used to have that Razer mouse but after 2 years the rubber parts started to get sticky.

u/Stabileseitenlage Dec 04 '21

Mine too, I've just removed the soft touch rubber coating with alcohol. As you see in the pictures. Was Pretty slippery after but you get used to it.

G502 is kinda like aiming with a brick though.
