Logitech G400 - Quick Impressions - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Well, 4 m/s is my malfunction speed. If I would go above it, I would throw my mouse away. :-) My max perfect control speed is much lower than that, around 2.6 - 2.7 m/s. :-)

EDIT:

I did some testing again, and I found something interesting. I never tried using the G400 with anything else, than 800 dpi, so I did it now, and this is what I got:

maxspeed800.png


maxspeed1800.png


maxspeed3600.png


I feel, I have to go and test this ingame later... :-)


EDIT No. 2


Did some math, and even with a 12 bit data path, the max speed at 1800 dpi and 1000 Hz should be 28.9 m/s and 1.79 with an 8 bit data path, so I guess this is not the issue here...
Ofc, max speed as in max speed limited by the data path.

Interesting. Though more and more ppl mentioned one shouldn't trust Enotus too much.

Well, since I'm sticking at 400DPI everything's settled. Heck, even 2,33m/s seems kinda high to achieve.

Ok, I did some further testing, and this time including my Abyssus.

Enotus result for the Abyssus:

1800 DPI:

3600 DPI, instead of 3500 because Enotus don't like unorthodox DPI steps, but this is still fine for testing purposes.

I also tried all DPI setting in game and the results:

G400: I do get negative acceleration with the 1800 and 3600 DPI settings, but 400 and 800 is perfect. I couldn't hit malfunction speed.

Abyssus: I might hit max perfect control speed with 3500 DPI, but I can't say it for sure. I had to try so hard, that I might accidentally tilted or lifted the mouse a little bit and the amount of negative acceleration wasn't that consistent that I can safely say, that I hit it.
However, a few times I hit malfunction speed, where after turning like 30 degrees, it stopped turning, jumped a little bit backwards and than down.


I have to add, that these problems are quite theoretical, since you have to move the mouse at insane speed to notice them.

Conclusion:

If you like to use 3600DPI and 0.1 ingame sens while moving your mouse at speeds that destroys your mousepad (and nearly a calculator, when I couldn't stop at the end of my mousepad) then get the Abyssus instead of the G400. smile.gif

Use Outerspace's logger http://www.overclock.net/mice/854100-ocn-mouse-reference-thread-7.html#post11973853. Enotus displays only maximum speed, often there are random peaks on the graph.

I haven't bothered to reinstall drivers, but it seems that Derp has also experienced the driver educed performance flaw I talked about on post #26

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.

tl;dr don't install drivers if you want the mouse to perform optimally.
