Poor mechanical design of cable causes connectivity issues

Summary: Before reducing the thickness of their cables (for cost savings?) in this new model, Logitech should have tested this device more thoroughly for mechanical wear and longevity.
Pros: Nice ergonomic feel, smooth movement. I never really use the speed adjustment buttons, but they are there.
Cons: The cable on this mouse is too thin. I had an older version of the mouse and its cable is about twice in diameter adding more mechanical strength to it. This mouse cable failed on me once already within a few months of ownership and returned it for a free replacement from Logitech. Now another 2 ...
Summary: Reading the other reviews, I see my own story echoed countless times. The mouse was the best I had used (like the 5 star reviews) for about a year. Then it started intermittently cutting out. I put up with it for another year (2 year mark last week) and now it blinks in and out every few seconds...
Cons: Started randomly double-clicking after a year, which according to Google is a common problem with this mouse. Contacted Logitech about RMA under their 3 year warranty, but Logitech was unresponsive.
Summary: Apparently lots of other people have had the disconnection issue, If you don't keep your mouse straight during normal use you'll risk it happening to you as well. Logitech at least sent me a new copy and has a decently long warranty.
Pros: Lightweight, works well on a variety of surfaces, on the fly dpi change.
Cons: Repeatedly disconnected after 9 months of use due to loosening cord where it enters the mouse.
Worthless to a non-gamer. One extra star for the warranty.

Summary: Yes, I KNOW that it's designed for gamers. I thought I was being smart-- get a gaming mouse, it should last longer than a standard mouse. This one lasted 14 months of web surfing and word processing. Not good at all. And the input seemed less consistent than my old $10 Kensington mouse.
Summary: Sad, Logitech used to make the best mice, bar none. Time to look for a new mouse and keyboard maker who hasn't cut one corner to many.
Pros: Worked great for about 6 months.
Cons: After 6 months tracking erratically, left mouse button not registering click. Tried on several computers to verify it wasn't a bad USB port. Its the mouse. My guess is Logitech has outsourced their components to the lowest bidder, and we know which Asian country that most likely is.
Summary: Like the MX518 platform, this is a superbly ergonomic mouse. But with a thin USB cord and no strain relief, it's a ticking time bomb. You need not look further than the Logitech G400S to see where Logitech is covering up its tracks, the newer version has a tiny bit of strain relief where the USB...
