@OP

 

Before you buy any mouse especially logitech, check if anyone has previously observed double-clicking issue.

M510 has it. - http://forums.logite...p/591328/page/3

M705 - Not sure but it might have.

I have M905 I got a brand new box packed replacement but after a month it started giving me troubles again.

I tried all the fixes so far except modifying the hardware. It seems logitech has a design flaw maybe.

Check the relevant links, I don't think I would be going for logitech's Mxxx range again.

I must say I do like the M905 and I really wished it didn't have double-click issue. It just makes it unusable.

Well thanks Stark, now what am I suppose to do.

 

The M series are the only ones that have great battery, and are relatively cheap.

If you are looking for good battery,

then Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000 would be good like FrancoisC suggested here, it has 8 months battery life.

or you can go for this Logitech Zone Touch Mouse  it has 18 months battery life and won't have double click issue I think.

As the double-clicking issue is mainly because of the click mechanism which is not here exactly.

Also this one operates like traditional mousebut just has touch surface unlike T620.

I had the M705 for a couple of years and I don't recall having any clicking or tracking issues with it, however what I really hated and made me switch to another mouse was that dust and hair would get in the wheel way too often and prevented it from working properly. I never had the same issue on my older Microsoft mouses that didn't leave so many wide gaps around the wheel.

 

Also now that I think about it the batteries I tried with that mouse (Eneloops and IKEA batteries) didn't make very good contact, or maybe contacts oxidized over time, but sometimes the mouse disconnected/reconnected during use because of that.

!? I don't see what other wheels I could be referring to. The scroll wheel, of course.

Does Logitech make the M705 anymore?

 

Seems like a great device, is there a newer alternative?
