Last year, I brought a wireless optical mouse.
This mouse was fine, until it slowly began to die causing me nothjing but grief in computer games. And when accuracy on the mouse was rated at 10% by one of my games, I knew it was over for the mouse.

After buying a Logitech MX518, the mouse was finally removed from service. Now, if it were any other mouse, i would have left it alone, however, I felt that this mouse had caused me so much annoyance, there was only one way to end its life.

Smash it.

Call it childish, pathetic, whatever, all I know it was great stress relief.

Now Ill share with you the pictures showing you what will happen if you buy a shoddy A4tech mouse.





We then decided to 'put it back together, with tape'

On the 8th of August, we are having a bonfire and bbq. The mouse will enjoy a very hot death.

I hope you enjoyed my tale of 'technology under the hammer'.

Kev.

Sadly that was beyond my price range. Still, the MX518 is an excelent mouse. Now i have 100% accuracy on BF2.
