A for-real mouse might be nice...

Been using Trackman Marble Trackballs for ages and getting tired of
Logitech's chinchy microswitches wearing out. This last one, if it
all, looks like a "breaker upper" while trying to find the plastic
pressure connects. I could swap the left and right microswitches
embedded into the the left/right clickers (they're optional,
"assignable" switches via Logitech's software (when doing very
important things, such as "switch active window to last used window.")

I'll even go back to a regular mouse (yes, sir - build a custom pad, I
will) provided such a mouse has endowed, extra assignable switches and
software for ambidextrous use. I've trained myself, being
right-handed, to be a left-handed mouse user. Really messes up
people's minds who try to sit down and use my keyboard.

Tough, though -- doesn't even ever, ever break switches (gamer grade?)
-- and software to control it like a dream. Sounds like something
that actually might cost -m o n e y-, although paying $25 for another
Trackman replacement kinda stinks the same way (in a pipe dream over a
bowl of wacky tobaccy).

Yeah, I really love using Logitech's stuff. I'm not impressed one bit
with their durability.

They're good about warranties, though, if you have your receipt.

Couldn't be more obvious -- but, no, I didn't know it's 5 years, which
qualifies me, (sure feels like a couple, hardly three years use), and,
no - of course, I wouldn't have to thought to keep a sales slip that
long. (Might be a New Egg ordered item still on their customer
records).

Go through the channels and set it up and pay maybe $10 - or more, I'd
certainly imagine, on shipping for a refurbished warrantee-supplied
replacement.

There's simply no beating thousands (to hundreds) of positive reviews
for a Logitech product, though, (compared to most anything else);- I
can nevertheless change camp, at least spend some time looking for a
better mouse trap among hardcore/gamer reviews.

Never much considered either way any impressions - just the
microswitch only starting to malfunction kind of is leaving a bad
taste in my mouth when looking at a $25 same new item.

My last Logitech was a BestBuy special sale, $10 wireless. Not a
Trackman, for sure, but rugged as hell, more "general" but nifty
features, (a functional touchpad between left/right buttons), that
from the underside works will virtually run on any surface including
glass. I bought it for girl-proof, though it outlasted her crap and
by far.

'You are a program,' she once told me. Now, there's a compliment.

Problem is it's so powerful that all computers in one room will run
off whatever single T400 is broadcasting (Unifying dongle) to another
T400 equipped computer.
