After slightly >2 years, the rubber coated buttons of my Razer Diamondback non-3G Plasma Blue LE desktop mouse finally degraded beyond repair. Multiple attempts to “rescue”/clean/disinfect the surfaces did not make it better, but in fact, made the rubber more “sticky”. I suspect it’s the isophyrol alcohol that is reacting adversely with the rubber material. So in other ways, the acids from the oil secreted from my fingers accelerated the wearing-out of the rubber-coated buttons & turned the rubber scroll wheel yellow; & the chemicals from the wet tissues nailed the stake in its heart. Nonetheless, the mouse has served me pretty well (& comfortably) over two years but alas, it’s time for a replacement.
