Default clean your old expensive mouse...

in may 2002 or something... i bought a mx500 for 65cdn...

sometime i experienced some problem with double left click ... it forced me to click harder...

today, i decided to clean it... i disassembled and shocked how dirty inside of the mouse is...

i cleaned everything... then reassembled and it felt like new... strange experience... i dont like that way... very smooth and i can not feel anything...

somehow i regret to clean it... because i just like how i can felt it... not smooth scroll, click click, etc

i still have new mx500 in my closet... because before i thought it had a problem so got free replacement... they told me to throw the mouse away... (but i was like what? how i supposed to use my computer without mouse).. later i realized something do with scroll (obiviously dust)... so i kept both... both for 65cdn... ;p

anyway... you should clean your mouse very often... especially your sweat... >_>;
