Just got a G305 wireless mouse, so far I'm extremely satisfied with it. The only odd thing I've noticed, considering how beautifully designed and built it is, is that the USB nano-receiver is kinda hard to pull out from its storage slot because it doesn't have a flange around the top, and there isn't enough room for me to get a good grip on it even with my non-sausage fingers. Just wondering if other people have noticed this or is it just my mouse? If it's normal I'll just stick some tape on it to function as a pull-out tab.

At least it has a slot for it, the Anywhere 2 mouse doesn't.

The sticky tape did the trick. Still, it's a pretty stupid design. The mouse is OK overall but the various design flaws start to show after a while, this is just the first one I noticed.

Wireless USB always create issue.

No, they do not.
Stop buying garbage mice and stop spreading this BS, lag and stability really hasn't been an issue on Logitech (and a few others) for a VERY long time.

Dongle placement is the most common problem people have. Range claims are line of sight, it really should be as close as possible (I recommend less than 2 feet) and certainly not the back of the case or monitor since those are purposely designed to block radio signals.

I am using Logitech but it's not good for regular work.



HP or Dell is far better.

The lowest end Logitech stuff is pretty much always white label Chinese garbage, I don't even need to look that up to know it's most definitely very low end Logitech.
And no Dell is not better or better or worse, everything bottom end is this way, the Dell and HP you are comparing to is not bottom of the barrel. I've seen HP and Dell that are every bit as horrible as that Logitech.

Low end stuff is almost always white label because it's cheap and allows then to use the same parts on multiple keyboards, they just change the shell a bit and screen a different name on them. 10 minutes on Ebay and amazon I bet you could find 4 other keyboards with that exact basic shape and curve across the bottom keys, pretty sure I've used the HP (or Emachines) version of that (and yes, it sucked).

I had this same problem. Haha.

Like the mouse so far, though. Thanks, tp. Although, I find myself accidentally right clicking once in a while... perhaps my last mouse just had a harder click.
My wife I a also push her button . But now she have her button push by a different men. So I buy a keyboard a mechanicale, she a reliable like a Fiat.
