Reason for Sale
Double clickikng/not using
Please note: Both mice have the infamous double click issue. I've replaced the left switch on the G304 once but I guess the replacement Omrons I bought from Amazon were of the same family because it has started having issues again. Pricing has been kept low keeping this issue in mind. Also the reason that I am throwing in the new sealed skates/feet for free.
EDIT: Some comments here indicate that the double click issue can be fixed sans soldering. So I guess that's less troublesome for whoever buys. Not increasing the asking price regardless.


Once again I bring you from the treasure trove of impulsive purchases I later end up regretting; a selection of mice, headphones and earbuds. They were acquired over the years and some have seen a bit of mileage while others are practically brand new. Brief descriptions and pricing as follows. Have put official website links where I could find them, else they are basically the first link I found when Googling. :D

Logitech G304: A great mouse. Perfect for me actually if it weren't for the double click thing. Bought in May, 2020. Wireless and since I am a very casual gamer, perfect for my use where I wanted a wire-free desktop. Only works with the Lightspeed dongle, so you will need a free USB port. I am not sure if an existing Lightspeed dongle will work with this mouse as well, i.e. in the case you have a Lightspeed keyboard already. Logitech quality is top notch in terms of feel and lag. The latter of which is absolutely negligible as far as I am concerned. Only reason I am selling it is the double click issue. As mentioned, I tried replacing the left switch with limited success. I strongly suggest that you replace both main switches if not all of them. Don't want to get into that hassle myself hence selling it off. All accessories included. I believe this goes for around 2.5K brand new usually. So expected price: Rs. 1,000/- shipped. Rs. 800/- if you arrange shipping/pick it up yourself. No warranty. Will give three days testing warranty except for the double click thing since I have clearly mentioned that. If you purchase this, you do so knowing it has the double click issue and will need soldering of new switches. Battery not included. Comes with free new sealed skates/feet.

EDIT: So I have received a message asking for a pic of the G304 PCB since I changed the switch. I understand the concern and I did try to open up the mouse to take those pics. But honestly, opening it up is a huge pain for me and my fat fingers. But more importantly, it also involves pulling some wires out and I really don't want to damage anything while trying to sell this. So I get it and I apologise to those that would like to see those pics but it's not gonna happen.
However, like I said, there is a 3 day testing warranty for anything other than the double clicking. You are welcome to buy and open up the mouse to check the PCB yourself. Please record the process so that if there is any damage (pre-existing or otherwise) both parties can be clear about it.
Also, while trying to open it up, I found that one of the skate "borders" (?) had been damaged while I had changed the switch. Adding pics of the damage. No issues with moving the mouse or mouse feel or anything. Reduced price also a bit for that.


Logitech G603: Another great wireless mouse. Bought in May, 2018. Can connect with both Bluetooth and the Lightspeed dongle. Works great but is just a bit too large for my comfort. That and the double click issue is why it was replaced with the G304. It was RMAed once due to the double click thing. But the new unit also developed the same problem within a few months. Again, strongly suggest replacing the two main switches at least with switches of your choice for peace of mind and ease of use. I believe it is out of warranty now. All accessories included. Bought for about 4.5K. Expected price: Rs. 2,700/- shipped. Rs. 2,500/- if you arrange shipping/pick it up yourself. No warranty. Will give three days testing warranty except for the double click thing since I have clearly mentioned that. If you purchase this, you do so knowing it has the double click issue and will need soldering of new switches. Batteries not included. Also comes with free new sealed skates/feet.


Plantronics BackBreat Pro 2: Bought in May, 2018 when I was looking for good ANC headphones but couldn't afford Bose/Sony level stuff. Still can't afford those but don't have much use for the Plantronics now. ANC is decent though of course not industry leading. Used in planes a couple of times and it managed to reduce the background noise to an acceptable degree, though it did not eliminate the noise completely. Have replaced the earcups a few times. That's why the headband is still brown/tan while the cups are grey. Don't think the headband is user replaceable, hence it is still the original one and you can see the wear on it. All accessories included. Bought for about 10K. Expected price: Rs. 6,200/- shipped. Rs. 6,000/- if you arrange shipping/pick it up yourself. Don't have a box large enough to ship this so it might take a day or two extra to ship, while I acquire one.


Samsung Galaxy Buds Live: Bought from Croma in September of this year. These were an absolute impulsive purchase. I find the IEM type earphones uncomfortable and prefer the 'on-ear' (?) regular type ones. The Samsungs looked like a good compromise between the sound isolation IEMs offer, and the comfort of the regular type earphones. Happened to see an ad for them on Insta and bought them. However, the shape does not sit properly in my ears. While the sound is great, I feel like they are loose and will fall, especially if I suddenly jerk my head or something. But I believe I have weirdly shaped ears, so they might be perfect for you. They come with two pairs of rubber/silicone ear tips; one (small) pre-attached and an extra (larger) pair in the accessories box. The app unlocks extra functionality, namely the ANC and customising the gestures to a limited extent. Practically brand new as can be seen in the pics. Have thoroughly sanitised the buds and all tips. All accessories included. Bought for about 4.8K. Not sure how much warranty Samsung gives on these but since they are barely even 2 months old, I expect they have at least a few months of warranty left. Expected price: Rs. 3,500/- shipped. Rs. 3,200/- if you arrange shipping/pick it up yourself. Comes with a free silicone skin I purchased separately on Amazon.

Available invoices have been uploaded. Shipping will be arranged via Delhivery. As always, thank you for stopping by and reading. While I feel the pricing is fair, all things considered, please do let me know of any pricing issues with relevant links in the thread.

On a side note, if anyone can recommend a wireless mouse similar in size and shape to the G304 but with optical switches (don't want any more double click hassles), please do let me know. Currently using the Deathadder V2 Pro and while it is otherwise ok, the shape feels just a bit too large for me.

Thanks again for reading. Happy buying!

The switches can be repaired without replacing them. My 5 years old g502 still rocking without any switch replacement.
Temporary solution is to dunk them in Isoproyl alcohol and that seems to last few weeks until it's needed again. Those Chinese omron switches logitech uses are prone to this issue and they don't need to fix that because people still buy regardless. People know logitech mice even worth 10K and above have the issue but still buy them so why would they care to fix it.
 
Received full amount for the G304 from @Ani_99 . Will be sending the package tomorrow.


EDIT: Package sent via India Post as requested by buyer. Have updated them with tracking no. on TE PM and on WhatsApp as well.

Bump. Is there any issue with pricing? Please lemme know. Or no one wants the stuff?

Merged post: G304 received by buyer. Unable to add feedback right now due to network issues, will try again after a while.

So even the g pro x and the g pro x superlight can develop these issues?

Any good gaming mouse using mechanical switches will. When a switch is pressed, the voltage from the switch will go from 0 to full voltage. But this is not a clean step. There will be a lot of glitches before it stabilises. Non gaming mouses wait much longer than gaming mice for the signal to stabilize. And this introduces lag between you clicking and the mode sending the signal to the PC. Gaming use very aggressive filters which don't wait too long to reduce latency but makes it more susceptible to noise. As mechanical switches age and wear out the signal becomes more erratic and you start getting multiple clicks
