Alcor - wobbly buttons

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've purchased an Alcor three days ago and I've been satisfied with it except for one thing which is it's main buttons. They kind of just wobble to the sides a bit which didn't happen with my old Gigabyte MX8000. It just feels like something wasn't screwed in properly or some part isn't in place it should be in. I've been wondering if it's a legit reason to go to the store i bought my unit in and request a replacement, or maybe it's how it was supposed to be? I'd appreciate a quick response. Thank you.

 

Edit: This wobble isn't a standard wobble. It's very noticeable and it has a very annoying "click" when you move it to the sides. It shows more in the right click than it does in the left.

Hi,

 

I also have an Alcor with the same spacing between the housing and scroll button. I never experienced it as a problem, it's not a defect or anything. It also makes a click when I move it, but it doesn't affect my experience when scrolling or pressing the scroll button. I think it was supposed to be (I have 2 Alcors).

 

B/rgds, Pim

Yeah, is it just my unit or is the right click different from the left click? Has a different sound and a different feel when it clicks back from the button press.

The L & R button both use the same Omron switch, so there shouldn't be much of a difference. If you don't trust the unit, you might want to return it, since you bought it 3 days ago.
