New Logitech MX518 Optical Mouse

Ok so I was all excited to hear that Logitech was finally bringing out a new version of the MX518 mouse.....which means I can finally replace my ancient MX518 that keeps working fine so still my preferred mouse BUT bits of the plastic etc are worn away...... so looks like hell.

Ok the new one arrived today and still getting used to it, considering I just disconnected my old mx518 mouse (eg. at least 10 years+ old, couldn't find receipt its that old) this new mouse has some big shoes to fill........and so far im not impressed.

3 issues ive identified so far.

1/ the cable is much thinner than the old one.......which means it no longer stays fitted into the chase space beneath my G11 keyboard. Not sure if this is a new standard size and they've been like that for years......but basically couldn't discretely hide the wiring like I could with the old one.

2/ you cant actually plug it into the G11 keyboard like you could the old one.....basically it says hub overpowered - I assume some time in the last decade they changed the power specs and this isn't solvable......basically means couldn't discretely hide the wiring like I could with the old one........

3/ and this is my biggest problem-though probably easiest one to fix. Ive always used the assignable thumb keys as scroll up and scroll down........for some reason scroll up and scroll down is not available on the assign feature......like seriously?? who thought that was ok? They got next music track, or next tab.....but not scroll up and down so the only way to scroll is using the wheel??

Ugh.


Update on the scroll issue - see in the comments section below
