Ive never damaged the cable on any of my 4 Logitech mice. Ive actually been using and still use to this date a Logitech G5 that I bought when it was brand new. Not one single hiccup. I dont know how rough you are on the cord, but it must be far past too much.

The newer mice have crappy cables. The G400's cable isn't very flexible and is really thin, unlike the cable on the MX518 and previous mice.

Hmm good to know, I will have to test this out myself. (I generally have good luck with Logitech Products so it will probably be the exact opposite of what you said)

I don't abuse my G400, but I would not want to have the cable somewhere that would cause it to be bent or crushed a lot.

cable is safe no matter what if you fix it onto your table somewhat. I put my cable under the upper right edge of my keyboard with enough length to move the mouse freely. that way you reduce strain and the chances of the cable breaking in less than 2 years are nullified.

Well, I wouldn't like to throw it into my backpack and carry it around, like I do with my MX518.

I'm just holding the cable in place under my surge protector.

Hello, another prospective buyer looking for a mouse. I would appreciate any input!
1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip when surfing etc. Fingertip grip when gaming and most of the time.


2. What's your sensitivity?
2000 DPI, 6/11 in Windows, Acceleration OFF, 2.0 in CS 1.6.


3. What's your maximum budget?
Not an issue.

4. Do you want additional buttons?
At least 2 extra programmable buttons.

5. What games do you play?
FPS 95% of the time. CS 1.6, GO, COD, Battlefield any new FPS or 3rd person shooter. 5% RPG

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes. I need the most accurate movement. No prediction, acceleration or anything similar.

7. Other relevant information:
I have a RAT9 mouse which I have come to hate for the following reasons: ****ty tracking(especially if the surface isn't "perfect"), cursor goes crazy when lifting, mouse lift/movement when I rest my palm at the back of the mouse, didn't like the shape after all(too flat), too heavy. I did like the sniping button but because of positioning barely used it. I had a Logitech MX Revolution before the RAT and I realized that I liked the shape of the logitech way more than that of the RAT. So I need a mouse that has excellent and accurate tracking and is really ergonomic (I also work with my PC and need it to be comfortable). I would prefer to buy a wireless mouse but I am open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

1. What's your grip style?
Palm grip/claw. I do have fairly large hands (8 1/2in from bottom to top ) so my pinky drags along my mouse mat which is extremely annoying.


2. What's your sensitivity?
600 DPI, 6/11 in Windows, Acceleration OFF, 1200 dpi when gaming


3. What's your maximum budget?
100$

4. Do you want additional buttons?
don't care for butttons

5. What games do you play?
FPS most of the time.

6. Do you mind about prediction?
Yes. I need the most accurate movement. No prediction, acceleration or anything similar.

7. Other relevant information:
I currently have the m65 and it is too small for my hand. My pinky tends to drag along the mouse mat. Also the sniper button was an awful idea, sounded better at the time, all it does is get in the way.

IMO, it's probably easier to play FPS if you're doing a palm or claw grip, but for a fingertip grip, I'd suggest a Zowie AM/FK, CM storm spawn or a Roccat Savu.

I'd recommend a G400 or Deathadder.
