Logitech G400 - Quick Impressions - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Skylit you prob know me from ESR
The missed few points here with G400 which I am facing too.
1) Rubber coating is too soft its not as gripy as mx518 my fingers sweat and slips on it.
2) Drivers have big issues atm. Mouse jitters and reduce its prediction when you test with other DPI settings. ( I know stock DPI are same as Mx518 but people like to change their DPI)
Thats all I want you to test it.

@Skylit
Thank you for the affirmation. I suspected a flaw with my G400 but wanted to make sure. Good to know everything's fine with mine. Well, as expected by Logitech I guess.

my g400's left click is ever so slightly stiffer. my main gripe is that left side grip is too velvety slippery causing me to hold onto the mouse tighter and causing my thumb to ache after a few hours of gaming. old 518's side rubber grips were grippier. also there seems to be 4 speed setting 2 high and 2 low and non in the middle which I prefer. old 518's middle speed sensitivity setting was dead on. new g400 is either too fast or two slow. kind of disappointed really

also the prediction in the 518/g400 is hardly even noticed.

1)Yeah. The Mx518 had a gripper shell, but I'm actually okay with the new one.

2) And yes, the drivers are bugged. It jitters, but it isn't as bad as some mice. (Logitech as a fix ready for next months setpoint)

Actually on a another note, I think this mouse shares the same performance hindering issues like the 518 v2. I didn't test it thoroughly, but my mouse felt "lagged" and my wall to wall test seemed to hit negative acceleration a little early. I'll test it again, but my G400 currently lacks mouse feet cus I was silly and opened it up.

For now, I say driverless is the best option for this mouse.

Any progress?
Hard to believe you reach the max perfect control speed on it.

I tested my G400 with the Enotus tool and it measured around 4 m/s and I haven't noticed negative acceleration at that speed (ingame, it landed on the same spot, without any effect of the movement speed). Previously I tested the Enotus software by recording my mouse movement with a high speed camera on a known distance, and it seemed accurate.

I agree on the grip, it is a bit slippery. For me it seems, that it is more slippery when you have dry hands, and works better if you are sweating a bit. I modded mine with some electrical tape on the sides and on the back half of the mouse. Now, it feels much nicer. :-)

Ya hope they solve driver problems soon. Soft grip is annoyning on both side.
I hit malfunction speed very easy. I couldn't do that in Mx518. It does when I really try also it doesn't happen when I am in game.
Are you going to do a review of G300 soon?
Cheers buddy!
