Scroll Wheel Infuriating
on 8 August 2018
OK mouse for the price, but nowhere near the 5* rating it has!
The biggest problem is the scroll wheel is intolerable (details below), but the whole mouse feels light weight and hence a little cheap, and even though I got the version "for large hands" (and my hands aren't that big) it still feels a little too small.
The scroll wheel:
At first it was a minor annoyance, but now it has become intolerable to use. At certain points during the rotation of the scroll wheel it will actually scroll the screen/document in the opposite way to the way you are scrolling! I'm assuming there is some manufacturing defect internally, but I am unable to open the mouse body to inspect it without destroying it. I presume the scroll wheel is like a cog with one or more teeth missing or broken etc. due to cheap manufacturing processes that allow them to sell it so cheaply. Look at previous reviews (I.e. ones less than 5*) for other reports of the same issue. Wish I'd paid more attention to them! Good life lesson, always check the reviews < 5* to get a more accurate idea of the product's bad points!
I'm a software developer, which means scrolling through long pages of text all day long, so this previously minor annoyance now renders it absolutely infuriating to use. Going to have to invest in a better quality mouse. Buy cheap, buy twice!
