Hi all,

I am after a MX Master mouse, and new keyboard.  I prefer a tenkeyless model, something with MX Brown or Red switches, or ultimate preference would a Topre board, like a Realforce.

I am based in Auckland.

The MX Master is a very nice mouse, I use one at work. They aren't to expensive to buy.

I had an MX master, the left clicked died after about 18 months... not happy for a $150 mouse.

Did you try the warranty?

I have an MX Master.


First one the scroll wheel failed altogether in 6 months. Replaced under warranty.


Second one the scroll wheel is now no longer switchable to free spinning - it does click only. So far have not been bothered to try arguing with wherever I bought it from (PB Tech I think) about replacing the replacement.


IME Logitech have some good ideas but pretty poor build, materials and so on.

The wheels often stuff up on mice. The rubber tends to swell so it is too large for the sides. Some logitech mouse I have purchased had to be returned under warranty, although most either had a 3 or 5 year warranty on them. So ended up with a good amount of use out of them. The mouse I am using now ironically is a reasonably cheap dell laser one, but has a logitech circuit board in it. But it doesn't have the same wheel problem, as more room around in case it swells.
