    MS Mice

    They come with a "lifetime warranty" - anyone know how to take advantage of this ?

    There is a number to ring, i just don't know what it is, anyone got to to hand ?

    Thanks

    IIRC "lifetime" isn't actually your lifetime, but the lifetime of that particular product range, so you couldn't replace an old intellimouse with one of the new intellimouse v3's (I think..)

    I prefer the old ones anyway due to the much bigger side buttons, all i want is a working mouse again.

    Even if they say that, ill blag as much as i can to get it replaced.

    wots wrong cable broke again? happned 3 times a week on my old intellimouse (free with pc ages ago).
    ms mouses use crappy easy to break cables, which are the weakest part, (marketing stratagy - mouse breaks, 90% of ppl will just buy a new one!).... get urself a cheap £3 mouse and swap the cables over, itll be better, or atleast cheaper

    OR you could get a decent mouse...





    this one for example:
    http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/product.p...36c9c4573684d8
    and its not expensive either, as it comes with a decent enuf mousemat (technicly its a turd mousemat, but the combination of this mouse and mat is better than a decent optical and the best mat...)
    (this mouse does need some mods though to make it good for gaming - mouseskatez and replacement ball from the cheapest mouse u can find (as long as the ball is the white and smooth type, not the black bumpy type, oh and rempber to turn windows mouse accel off again, as the soft turns it back on i thin (the soft is good, u should install it)

    Nar, its not the cable. This did break 2 times in the past, but i manged to "acquire" new offical MS ones so i dont need to worry about that

    Ive had this mouse about 3, maybe 4 years now - Its the first button on the mouse. There is a bit inside which pressed down a push to make switch underneath it, but its been pressed that many times, there is an actual groove in the plastic that presses it, causing it to press twice in some cases, and not at all at others

    Thanks da_ging - ill try to give them a ring later

    I had my cordless intellimouse explorer pack in - went on the the MS website and filled in the return form, just had to post it back to them and they sent me a new one. Didn't take long either.
