Announcement   Announcement : Laser upgrade for Amiga mice.
   posted by Rob on 4-Feb-2017 0:39:20 (1156 reads)
Amiga Store EU are advertising a replacement PCB for Amiga mice that upgrades them to laser mice.

Link

There will be boards for both the tank style mouse and the later A1200 mouse. It's a drop in replacement for the standard PCB with no soldering required. It also has a lens cover that goes in place of the original plate used for retaining the ball.

The sensor used is the same found in high end devices and offers a resolution of 8500dpi.

Availability is expected on the 22nd of March.

No price is currently mentioned.

LOL. But where's the scroll wheel?

A mouse PCB without wires soldered on board seems rare to me.

I have my original tank mouse, always meant to fix it, but the plug on the end broke.

Can this be ordered yet? Can't see a way to order in OWB. Where's the cart adding button?

Now it seems to work, but meh.. too expensive for me. I got interested, because I have handful of badly working original mice and would be really nice to fix/modernize them, but 40e per mouse is just too much :(
