Which mouse/trackball lasted the shortest amount of time on your desk (and why)?

<< < (2/2)

I used to main the HK Gaming Mira S. I love how small and comfortable it feels but the mouse lasted from July 2020 to April 2022. I'm still not exactly sure what happened but around August 2021, ever since I plugged in my second mouse (which was the G-Wolves HSK), the mouse randomly started disconnecting. I thought maybe it didn't like USB 3.0 so I switched to USB 2.0 and it was fixed.. well, temporary fix. The more I used it, the more issues I ran into. The cursor sometimes teleport, spun out in-game and disconnects more often. There was one time I was browsing and the cursor teleported to the right corner of my screen and hit the exit button. Nice.

My guess was maybe it had something to do with these two mice specifically? Before I had a bunch of mice tested with my Mira S and never had any issues until the HSK was plugged in. Or maybe it's just the cable and pcb that straight up sucked. I don't know, I stopped thinking too much about it and went back to my Deathadder mini.

Elecom Huge. Wanted to like it as I had previously used a CST, but the Elecom had substandard bearings. I got rid of the Elecom before new ceramic bearings arrived (Covid shipping delays).

I've never really bought a mouse that I didn't like. The only reason I'd swap my mouse is if a new mouse comes out that I like more.

This was the only mouse I managed to wear out. Played a lot of mouse-games like Warcraft 1&2 in the mid 90's and the left switch died within a year or two. I got it swapped from the central button but afterwards it didn't last very long. I grinded pads due to extensive use and gave up at finding replacement.
