    Logitech uses now very shitty "custom" omron switches for buttons, designed to fail quicjlt (planned obsolesence) it's not the "chinese omrons you can buy in retail, that should last at least few years of abuse)

    And if you got liogitech hardware with misbehaving switches, you can:
    1) clean it (usually works for weeks)
    2) replace omron switch. Even Japanese Omrons aren't pricey and should last forever. But beware of extensive heat while soldering them!

    The Naga Trinity i won years ago still works fine, if you regularly remove the dust like you should do for all hardware

    I don't know about recent build quality, but I have Abyssus Essential and Lancehead from 2018 and true, in Abyssus I had to replace Omron switches - but still works, not like my previous Roccat Kone+ and Lancehead still works fine (also was much more expensive).

    There is a long list of supported keybords and mice. And the most popular Linux distributions are supported.
    https://openrazer.github.io/
    Possibly the driver is already part of that distributions, so that no installation is needed.
    Stay away from razer mice... they are utter garbage. I have owned several and they have all died with a year or less. They use garbage switches in their primary buttons. The record was a Razer Naga that died via left click switch failure within 8 months of new purchase. That was the last one, I gave up on them at that point and went back to logitech. Corsair is also proving to be reasonable from a quality perspective (havent tried messing with its settings in Linux).

    Piper is awesome gui for configuring Logitech devices, I have found it to be better then the Logitech windows software!

    All of that said, I have a Razer keyboard with the cherry switches... so far it has survived quite well and in general I am pleased with it... its the longest lasting Razer product I have ever owned.

    That usually happens after residing for a long time in open-source land.

    Months ago I bought a Logitech mouse (because my Razer one got a faulty scroll wheel).
    libratbag and g203-led worked wonderfully out of the box.
    On the other hand, even after installing the official drivers on Windows, it failed to recognize my mouse despite repeated attempts to get it to work.

    Likewise, with Razer devices I've always used OpenRazer and it just worked (some missing features though but otherwise it seems to work).
    On the other hand, having to register an account to use Synapse is terrible.
