First i had to replace my Logitech G603 mouse after just a few weeks because of scroll issues (I didn't know existed until i started getting problems). And now just when i got my money back, my keyboard started after a few weeks, 1 rgb light on 1 key has problems with the blue color, and again reading afterwards it seems to be another common thing.
Not as problematic as with the mouse, i can just select another color and hoping it will stay to that 1 key, but in the end the more extra's you just get on your stuff, the more chance something will break.

I bought my G502 RGB on sale for 40€ a couple of years ago. It feels like it will last forever, lol.

Same here, I got mine a little after the RGB version came out and has been working nearly perfectly since then. The only issue I have with it is sometimes clicking the scroll wheel does horizontal scroll instead and that only started recently, that's really only noticeable if I'm in a site that has horizontal content which is very rare or when trying to close a tab with scroll click (it ends up switching tabs instead)

Same, I bought mine for $35 two years ago and it's still going strong.

My older non-RGB G502 (3+ years) was passed down to a family member who's happily using it. My even older MX 518 is used by another family member.

I've had one Logitech mouse die on me after several years, an MX51x model, and Logitech sent me the current replacement for free.

Think faulty manufacturing and bad luck getting such a keyboard.

Ouch, thought mine was already expensive, which one do you have?

Quite the same. I won't go blindly for the cheapest-cheapest just because it's the cheapest, but for sure I don't buy expensive mouses and keyboards.
I got my mouse for about 11$, with two buttons on the side, (kinda useless to me) blue leds, and I love its design. Got it about 4 years ago and it works very fine.
My previous keyboard, a simple one without leds and extra buttons, also 10-12$, worked well for years, until I spilled my cup of coffee on it and killed it. The new one, 15$, simple one with just a few extra buttons for the sound, start/pause and stuff (that I don't use actually), does its job.

I'm not a pro-gamer, I don't do multiplayer shooters that requires a perfect precision, so I'm fine with what I have. But to each his own, obviously. If a very expensive mouse can live 10 years, why not. If it dies after two years or even less, ouch, I would be so pissed. Though if a cheap mouse works bad since the beginning and dies after two weeks, that's not a good deal either. For now, I'm lucky with my cheap things so I'll stick with them.
Sorry for your bad experience with your thingies, Lugum.

I play CS GO competitive, TF2, KF2, Overwatch without any problems with a cheap mouse and KB. Dont know if there is much difference in owning a more expensive one. At least i have RGB light now on my KB+M.

Its not the Equipment you have, what makes you a good player, its yourself.

There can be People have Keyboards, Mouse what costs thousands of Dollars and they will still suck.

I dont know why all or most buy so expensive stuff, i am ok with my 5 Dollar Keyboard and Mouse.

Only what i would pay little more, if would have the Money, is the PC itself. But else, the People buy expensive stuff and if damage, burnt Money, cause not easy to repair in any store maybe.

And if have cheaper, its easier to repair, if can or just buy new. So nothing wasted in End at all. And have more left for the PC maybe. ;-)

I tend to agree that the more extras something has the higher chance of something going wrong. So I use the stuff that has the basic features. I have the G105 keyboard and the G300 mouse. Its good if you don't need the extra options.

Define expensive, though (expensive is subjective to everyone). :P

In the first place you should avoid RGB stuff if you want something that'll last for long in pristine condition, meaning both the keyboard's functionality and aesthetics will last longer. RGB lighting in keyboards tend to be prone to failure rather quickly, from what I've seen. I bought a used Logitech G710+ for $40, which is basically just a mechanical keyboard with white lighting (great since I'm working in a poorly lit environment and I like to be able to see my keys) and 6 programmable macro keys. This thing is being used way too much and still has mostly no problems, aside from me breaking a key cap and being too cheap to get replacements.

Having paid about 129 (149 Original price) for the keyboard and another 129 for a mouse, that was expensive.
I also have a cheaper 30 euro Logitech mouse/keyboard set, i always used those cheap sets without much problems, except the occasional drink spills, but i thought i got so much invested already so why not try one of these gaming mice or keyboards.

I did investigate before buying, and i learned that reviews can be so glowing, positive but most of these review sites just test them for a couple of days maybe, they hardly will see the problems that come after it with stuff like this.

If only this keyboard would still show it's white as you would with normal keyboards, but if the rgb wil completely die on a key, the key will become pitch dark black and if you got a few in a row like that, that would suck.
It's also bad you can't just replace keys with bad rgb, that would have been better.

I'm still using stuff from back when they made them to last and were simple rather than producing the cheapest way possible will a bunch of gimmicks that fail.
Microsoft WMO mouse and HP 5107 keyboard. Good enough to dominate in the most competitive FPS games and it just works. I don't need any of that new fancy stuff :)

The main reason I still use this keyboard is because I game with the arrow keys and I need no gap above them because I bind controls to to 3 or 6 keys just above the arrows. I have a hard time finding keyboards with this layout and I wanted to make sure I would be able to keep gaming with the arrow keys if anything happened to my keyboard, so I found the same model on Ebay and bought 2 new ones. I think they were around $6 each.

They go well with my CRT monitor :)

Logitech G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse

Logitech G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pro tip when buying anything ever: don't get anything that is expensive and has gaming it the name because it is most likely a ripoff.

I have 2 +150€ keyboards myself and to me they have been both worth every single cent I paid for them, hell one of them is probably one of my favourite purchases ever.

Which are?

The keyboards? Or the reasons it is most likely a rip off?

Keyboards:

  • K70 RGB - I spilled tea pretty badly on it 2x and took it apart 2x and while the RGB is a bit fucked now the fucker refuses to die and still works fine to type on. And yea this one has the gaming marketing behind it (tho I got the very first edition of it with the tramp stamp logo and the marketing back then was basically all on RGB and not much on gaming) but it is a quality keyboard and even if I probably way overpaid for it, I don't care, I got good use out of it.
  • VA88M Sakura Edition - it is small and compact so it is easy to travel with it and it is so pretty it makes me happy every time I look at it. Plus it is a pleasure to type on and great to annoy people with it because it has blue switches in it and very loud.

Reasons with it is a rip off?
Because most of the time you are literally paying a premium for the "gaming" branding because of what RainBoom said below. And therefore you are probably better off buying a non gaming version at the same price point as it will probably be of better quality.

Still dead led/RGB could have been an issue without the spills too.

I have the Logitech G910 keyboard and 3 switches are already broken, can't even replace them without opening the whole thing and resoldering it. And you can't even get the replacement switches outside of the Chinese webstores.

On the other hand my G502 mouse is still solid and very comfortable.

I have a razer keyboaard and mouse, +120e each, aand Im so desapointed with them.
Keyboard keys ASD works horrible, a lot of times don't work, it seems the mechanical key must be changed.
Mouse left click can't be hold, and when you keep presing it does a lot of clicks, I read that is a comon prob with static charge.

I've been using cheap $10 keyboards for years, no complaints.

Cheap mice however have been hit or miss for me. I just bought a new mouse about 2 weeks ago since my old ones scroll wheel started going bad, and the new ones laser creates a high pitches buzzing noise when ever I move it, super annoying (but most people probably wont be able to hear it at all).

My son brought me a refurbished Corsair K70 RGB two years ago this chrimbo (75 quid instead of 150 at the time), never had any problems with it since. I also brought a refurbished Corsair M65 PRO RGB (half normal price) last year after my trusty old Mionix Naos 5000 died on me :( Even though they were refurbished, they came looking brand spanking new, so I'd recommend them if wanting to get something decent and save a few pennies. I've also had a refurbished Corsair H100i V2 watercooler.

The only problem I've had over the years was when my HS50 (I think it was that model) headset broke. They replaced it with their latest headset at the time the Vengeance 1500 and they are still going strong some 6 years later. I also have a Special Edition White Graphite Series™ 600T Mid-Tower Case and Corsair Vengence memory. I don't think you can go wrong at all with Corsair.

I am using an 80-dollar Tesoro Gram MX One at home, gave my old 90-dollar Ozone Strike Pro to the parents (I don't like the different-coloured WASD keys), and use a custom-built Glorious GMMK that cost around 105 bucks at work. I doubt I could use a cheap rubber-dome keyboard ever again.

As for mice, I have two Logitech MX Master 2S ones (work and home), and the folks got a Mionix Naos 7000, with a Naos QG sitting in my flat as an emergency replacement. I would say that they are not as much better as my old Gigabyte M6800 was (which is 10 bucks compared to the 60 dollars of the Logitech and 50 of the Mionix), but good enough to make me want to use this MX Master series if these die on me after the warranty period.

I was going to get the Mionix Naos 8200 or the 7000 after my 5000 died (had it 8 years), loved how it felt with it being ergonmic. When I went to buy a 8200 or 7000 they were end of line and the price shot through the roof when I could find one. I didn't like the colour of the QG and with my level (age) climbing up I didn't fancy worrying over the heart beat sensor every five minutes lol

The QG was sadly the only one available from the Naos line (I don't like Aviator). The sensor is easy to disable, luckily.

That's unfortunate, looks like you've had a lot of bad luck with your purchases lately. After about two years of use I've got no complains about my G603 whatsoever.

Yeah, though there are people that try for replacements like 7 times and still get a bad piece again and again, then i rather get something else.
But there aren't any safe choices these days (unless you get something non RGB), like i got a Logitech G pro mouse now, but as with all mice they can produce doubleclicks, and with keyboards if i would ever RMA it and get a replacement, well Corsair keyboards also apparently suffer from dead leds.

Hope your G603 keeps on working, it's a good mouse, better battery too then the G Pro.

In my office workplace I use:
Keyboard Mitsumi Classic - works smth about 10+ years.
Mouse Logitech B100 - 5 years or something.
These are one of the cheapest peripherals, but one of the most reliable. Unfortunately, it has no extras, only the basic functions.

G502 Proteus Core 80€ served for at least 5-8 years so far and more to come. Scroll had rubber coming off, but cleaned it up and voila.
QPAD MK-50 60€ kicking for 5-8 years and no sings of having wear. Cleaned up pair of times so far by taking buttons off. Cherry Reds. Good feeling for cheap price and doesn't have nonsense RGB etc leds.

how serious were the problems with the G603? How did they change it - under the guarantee of the store or under the Logitech international guarantee?
I have the same mouse and the scroll fails a bit when scrolling fast, but this does not always occur, it started after a year of use. Nothing serious, but unpleasant. For example, at this moment in time there are no problems even with fast scrolling.
However, this was expected - now all manufacturers are sculpting short-lived optical encoders instead of mechanical ones.
And so - the mouse completely suits me - the lack of wires, long operating time, convenient shape, excellent sensor, removable battery. And the fucking optical wheel encoder = (

When browsing, the pages would automatically go slightly up or down, not on every page, it was sporadic.
And not as bad as with some YouTube clips i saw but still annoying, or what you might say unpleasant but enough for me atleast to sent it back even though the mouse itself was good.

I don't care much for the scroll wheel and if i could have turned it off and solved it that way, i'd be fine with it.
Logitech will help you only if the store won't help, but i was able to ship it for free to the store (Alternate) and asked a refund and went for a Logitech G Pro (which has a risk of double clicks).

For some it was solved with updating the firmware, so it can either be their software or hardware.

One of my more expensive Logitech keyboards lasts since 2008. Use it every day, never had any problems.
And you are lucky if problems with new hardware appear so quickly, as least you won't have any problem to get a replacement. The real concern is stuff breaking after 6 months.

I am not really feeling lucky, if you stick to RMA, who knows it doesn't take 7 times? And if decide to ask my money back and go for something else, Corsairs has dead leds too, Ducky, is there anything that won't give dead leds and should i just get something without?
