You can read some user reviews here: http://www.overclock.net/mice/105423...00-review.html

But overall if you've ever used the MX510/MX518 it has a similar body (slightly different texture), it does have a higher DPI (3600) as opposed to the older one and its a pretty solid mouse for regular use. While some people will nitpick on some features like prediction and acceleration but its very light and wont be a big problem. I personally haven't tried the G400 but I have used the MX518 for a long time and it served me very well. I did however move on to the G9x as I am more of a claw type user but my sights are somewhere else.

If the G400 acts anyway like the MX518 its pretty solid on games, did pretty well on shooters and they did improve on the things the MX518 lacked such as response rate. Very responsive, you can map out the buttons with the gaming software, dpi switch on the fly, durability (10mil clicks guaranteed?), doesnt cost as much so thats always a plus

The only negative feedback I've heard is about the bundled software. Better not to even load it since it introduces jitter once it's installed.

what is jitter?
post #6 of 21
I'm using one right now. Love it. I came from a mx518 that I loved though. Not a bad little gaming mouse for the price, IMO. Comfortable. I like that I can switch dpi (sensitivity) on the fly.

Not that this matter much, but the dark grey matte finish of the g400 is much better than the old marble swirly design of the old mx518.

I got mine OEM, so I didn't even bother installing any software, so I can't speak to that. Works fine with Win7 x64 out of the box, so I'm not sure why you would install any software.

Jitter is the mouse cursor moving on screen even when the mouse isn't moving. Bascially if you were to draw a straight line in mspaint, even if you did it well, the line would be all shakey looking.

Jitter from software is when the mouse sporadically moves or shakes the cursor, if that happens some people prefer not to install the software from logitech and just use the default drivers.

Got mine 2 weeks ago....
Prediction is quite high and weigth is little bit too high for me, but this is a preference thing.
I also don't like mousewheel, bad grip and clicking is too stiff

No jitter problems with software for me...
