About to order the Logitech G400 - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Thread Starter 
I got the G400, not sure about it. The way I hold a mouse is kind of in between palm grip and claw grip, I have my thumb positioned like in a claw grip (tip touching the left side), my fingers on the left and right mouse button are raised a bit but not a lot and I don't rest my palm on the mouse. On the G400 though that means pretty much no part of my hand is touching/supported by the mouse apart from my thumb and finger tips.

It's just like this guys:

I was considering taking it back and maybe getting the G9x which looks like it might fit better with how I hold it, anybody here tried the G9x? There's no point replacing it with a G500 as the shape is pretty much the same.

I don't want a Razer, seems like they're too expensive for the poor build quality and other issues they have.

The G400 is considered to be the successor to the much dated MX518. I've got both mices in my office and they are both solid performers. The G400 has got an improved sensor, higher DPI, and it runs at a 1000hz polling rate out of the box. Only problem with the G400 is that if you install the included software, it will cause tons of jitter. A simple Google search reveals that tons of other people are having this problem as well and that Logitech is aware of this and are working on a fix. Other than this little miniscule, the G400 is an excellent mouse.

Yeah I know this, and I already bought the G400, but if you see my post further up you'll see the shape of it isn't great for me and I'm thinking about maybe taking it back and getting a G9x.

Drivers also lower the max perfect control rate as discovered when I was testing this mouse. Ironically, the same thing happens with Mx518 v2.

I've never installed any of Logitech's drivers for this matter. I was just pointing out to the OP that the software included with the G400 causes major jitter. I myself use the the HIDUSBF 500hz patch + MarkC's 1:1 acceleration fix. The two combined together in my opinion is a whole lot better than Logitech's said drivers.

The jitter isn't "major", but it is a problem as is. I was just adding to the various problems you get from installing drivers smile.gif

It's the same exact shape as the g400, but modified. I'm assuming the OP is a claw or Finger tip grip and in which case the G9x will suit him better.
