Default How long does your gaming mouse live?

I bought MX1000 about 1.5 year ago, the left mouse button is now failing on me, click and drag is a becoming a very frustrating action to perform with this mouse

previous MX700 is doing "okay" but mouse feet have completely been worn out.

Haven't really broken a mouse yet, my MX700 got replaced because I broke my keyboard and bought a set. But the paint of the mouse was completely gonne and the batterys where allmost at the end of there life.

Both problems can be fixed with some handywork.

Yup, it's a bad contact in the button itself.
You can fix it by opening the mouse, opening the button and cleaning it/bending the internals a bit so it jumps back properly again. Or soldering a new button on it.
