@davcon, sounds like you had a similar kind of problems with your Lycosa as I did with mine, rma'd my one back after a week for a refund.
Unfortunately my issues slowly developed over time.
They didn't appear until about a month after i bought it
Got sick and tired of un and replugging the usb,which as you probably know would correct it until it happened again.
Would've been sweet to get a full refund,instead the tards replaced my regular Lycosa with a glossy Mirror Edition ughh!
I'll stay away from Razer products,had to also rma the Razer mouse too.
Like you, i have MS and Logitech products 10+ years old.
