The Logitech MX Laser 1000. Released in 2004, the MX Laser was the first ever consumer laser tracking mouse to be released by Logitech.
This is a Logitech MX Laser 1000 6 years later.
Logos and symbols worn off, product stickers peeled off, and clearly in need of some hardcore cleaning. To tell you the truth, I never really noticed how grimy it was until I started scratching away at the side (which you can see in a couple of those pictures). It was covered so thoroughly that it looked like the normal sheen of the plastic. It's to a level where I'm almost ready to give it up as a lost cause and buy a new mouse. Unfortunately, this mouse still works perfectly fine, and I'm not in a position to drop another $70 or so on a new top-of-the-line mouse. Thus, I'll simply be retiring it until I can put it through a heavy cleaning cycle.
So my question is this: how often do you clean your PC peripherals? Do you have any horror stories or pictures?
