Logitech G500 or the G400 - Page 2

post #11 of 27
I personally have the G500 and I really like it. I like the ability to change the weights on the mouse. The button on the thumb are well placed and have good feedback when pressed. The hyperscroll wheel is a nice feature when going through long webpages or documents. My only complaint is that the click noise is loud. Im not sure if its just my mouse or all of them so keep that in mind. I would recommend the G500 over the G400 but it comes down to personal preference.

Performance wise:
The G400's optical sensor is able to track consistently at a high rate of speed on most surfaces. Highest on cloth. The G500s laser sensor is able to achieve a higher maximum count and max IPS, but not consistently on soft fabric or dirty surfaces.

Why is this?
-Laser imaging is extremely sensitive.

In terms of consistency, a clean hard surface will keep it's high performance stable. Any dust, hair or dirt in between the sensor lens potentially gimps the sensors incredible tracking rates.

-As much as I don't want to claim that a sensor is "accurate", the G400 is technically superior when it comes to high speed point to point movement due to the 9500's small accel flaw.

That at least is the technical side of the matter.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

-If you want my true opinions, I would indeed take the revised 518, but that's not to say that thousands of people aren't happy with the G500.

-If you use your wrist to pivot a mouse, I doubt everything from the acceleration to max tracking rates will even be a concern to you.

-I'm not trying to scare people away, but I will do my best to inform that there are potential flaws whether they effect you or not.

-If you like the G500 then go for it. there's nothing worse than trying to imagine what could have been biggrin.gif

QCK+ is a excellent choice for a cheap pad. I don't know how much they go for though over there.

They all are the same cloth material. Its just the size and thickness that varies between all the QCK pads.

G400 suits me better and optical > laser.

I own a G500 as I got it in 2009, but if I was to buy a mouse today the G400 would be my choice.

I got the G500 and really like it.

My G500 came with some deep scratch on the bottom.

Not sure if it mattters or not but one thing to note with the G500 is where the sensor is located. Its at the tip of the mouse under the wheel. It bugged me for about a month as most mouse's have the sensor closer to the "palm" part of the mouse.
That aside I love the G500! great mouse once you get used to the sensor position.
