The optical mouse I use for my desktop is going to reach 20 years old early next year.

I know because the scroll was not working anymore. So I dismounted it and looked at the manufacturer sticker. It says "Manufacture date: 2002.01.03".

Some small spring fell off when I dismounted the scroll. Put it back together without them. Didn’t see how they were assembled. Scroll still works. Lost that ratchet sound on scroll. Actually, I prefer it like that.

How old is your mouse?
