Only experience i have is with the Space Pilot Pro which worked great and felt real good quality to me.... Awesome in 3D development environments but pretty much useless for anything else.

Those could be anything from indeed the real thing (that probably did not pass QC or something) to cheaply made budget copies. No easy way to tell really. The only guarantee to get the real deal, new, with warranty, is to buy from a official sales rep. OEM boxing could be the case if these mice for ...

I always steal those 10mm half hemispherical rubber feet that come under various appliances (keyboards, modems, routers, audio equipment) whenever i see those kind of thing being discarded. You could probably buy those new somewhere, they are awesome! Also, you can check IKEA... over here they have ...

If i were you id number all the pins on the controller (with a little marker right on the pcb) I would then (with the multi-meter set to measure continuity aka 'diode' ) measure to what two controller pins every switch is connected ...

Easy, magic!

Unfortunately what 'standard' will actually come next as the new big thing will depend on marketing and bureaucracy and not whats technically superior..... but it will probably be some form of PoW (power over wireless technology).

Hmyeah, the 'collapsing' key feel (not really being able to press it halfway) would indicate domes.. but then again rubber domes are not really loud in general. However if you hit hard enough any button will make a noise (if you hit it really hard it will only do so once tho).

Unfortunately being heavy nor being expensive are a good indication for it being a mechanical board especially when talking about wireless stuff (every cow is an animal, not every animal is a cow comes to mind).

Well as long as everything works i dont think you could call it a defect (even if its not supposed to happen). If you are really bothered by it you can always just desolder the led that annoys you (or put a sticker over it lol).
