Inside the 600M
To get a look inside of the 600M, there are six major sections that need to be carefully taken apart first. There is an upper and lower section to both sides of the mouse, there is an LED directional component, and the base with multiple layers of PCB installed into it.
Along with the three LEDs surrounding it, we find this Omron D2FC-F-7N switch under the left click button, which is rated for up to five-million clicks' worth of use before failure can occur.
The top layer in the PCB stack offers another pair of surface mount LEDs, and also offers a pair of black pad switches. These pad switches are used to register the side page forward and page back buttons, and if you look closely near the bottom, you can see the white switch for the sniper button.
Carefully disconnecting the ribbon cable and removing a couple of screws allows us to pull off the top layer of PCB to expose the sensor. We see that this is definitely the Avago ADNS 9800, as it is printed right there to see.
The 32-bit ARM Cortex M0 MCU of choice is the NXP LPC11U14F, as seen here. This chip not only controls all of the communications, but it also allows onboard storage for settings, Macros, and profiles so you can program the mouse and take it anywhere, all ready to go.
All of the connections from the various components are made along the right edge, and we see that the USB cable is plugged in, rather than being soldered in place. Under the spine, we see another pair of black pad switches, this time for the pair of DPI buttons on top of the 600M.
As we spin around to the front, we find a matching Omron switch with a five-million click lifespan, and yet another black pad switch for the scroll wheel's click function.
While carefully reassembling the components of the 600M, we did have to struggle a bit, but we persevered. Once it was all back together and fully functional, we plugged in the 600M to see that the side of the mouse has a nice accent of LED strip, and we can also see the red LEDs of the DPI level indicators.
After spinning the 600M for a rear view of it when powered, we can see that the six LEDs we found inside definitely make this left click button appear to float on a glowing band of color. If the stock orange is not your thing, don't worry, you still have 16.799 million other colors to choose from.
