Hello Everyone,

 

over the years i had a couple of Corsair mice, keyboards and other components and I'm pretty happy with them. But one thing bothers me about the mice. These I had since 2016:

  • M65 RGB - Broken wheel (2016/5)
  • M65 PRO RGB - Broken wheel (2016/8)
  • Scimitar Pro RGB - Broken wheel / Still in use (2018/9)
  • Ironclaw RGB - Broken wheel (2019/2)
  • Glaive RGB Pro - No problems so far (2019/11)
  • Dark Core RGB SE - Broken wheel (2020/6)
  • Dark Core RGB SE - In use (2020/8)

Everytime one wheel failed, either only scrolling or just middle click, I took it apart and saw that the wheel and axle are made out of translucent plastic.

The axle for the wheel is like 1,5mm.

The axle broke either left or right side of the wheel, one side meaning scrolling- and the otherside middle click not working.

 

I'm happy with my corsair products, but this bothers me. Everytime I bought a new mouse i hoped they replaced the axle with a metal one...But nope.

atm. I'm using my 2nd Dark Core SE, which I'm also starting to feel the wheel scratching/touching somewhere and sometimes the middle click doesn't work.

 

I also googled. Other people are also having the same issues accross different models... I highly doubt Corsair are trying to fix this, since it is an issue for me since 2016...

 

Kind Regards,

Caklyn

Yup, theres a 5 page thread on the IronClaw alone. I'm now due to get my 4th RMA of it. They clearly don't care.
