Default My G5 died! :'(

I'm disappointed, it didn't even last me a year!

It has been screwing up lately, for the past month or two. It would randomly screw up and I'd have to turn off Setpoint and then turn it back on and it would be fixed for maybe 10 minutes before it did it again. Occasionally it would completely turn off and I'd have to unplug it and plug it back in.

Well, it has completely died now. No lights whatsoever (even the little LED near the weights compartment) and Windows says there is an unrecognized USB device plugged in.

So, I've ordered a new one. I have to play games with a ball mouse for a week. o.O

It's not even quite a year old yet, maybe 9 or 10 months. Did I just get a lemon? Anyone else had this happen?

It didn't convince me to get a different mouse though, I LOVE this mouse.

that baby comes with a 3 year limited warranty. Look into getting it replaced. If you already got a new one you could sell the replacement. worth a try.

Dude, you r kidding right? You know very well any g5 working or non-working cost a pretty penny. I don't think you just took it to the trash and left it there.

It cost me $46... It's not a real bank-breaker.

@Apokalipse: Nah, not gonna spend the extra money just for one extra button.

I found the two-button version to be cheaper.

Well Newegg doesn't have it (unless I missed it) and it's like 20$ more expensive in town than the regular G5.

Eww, symmetrical mouse....


I've been using my MX518 for a long time (I think almost 2 years now), and so far the only thing that was showing age is the Logitech logo which is placed where your palm would be, it's almost rubbed out from so much use!
