Logitech G400 - input lag? - Page 2

post #11 of 22
It must be Logitech's "Gaming Software".

I noticed some weird input lag while playing BF3 with my Zowie AM. I only used the software because of my G35 headset.

Uninstalled it and it's a lot better now.

G400 feels delayed for me, even thought I changed the horrible mouse feet, it still doesnt feel as responsive as mx518, and I didnt use mouse drivers. Not horrible lag, feels like lag from interpolated dpi, but I used it at 800dpi. 1800 are laggy. Both mice I used in mx518 body, so its not because g400 is slippery.

Tracking feels very smooth, but not in a good way.

I'm sensitive to input lag. Although the G400 is no longer my main mouse, my individual sample did not have any perceivable input lag. Play mostly quake live/low sens on 120hz monitor (lightboost 2d) and League of legends

it's on par with my zowie AM, DA 3.5, abyssus, h100S etc, I just didn't like the shape.

That doesn't sound right. The G400 doesn't do what Zowie does with their 450 step. Logitech decided to have two "native" settings, then cut them in half for the other steps. This should be fine. Seems like a good idea to me.

The "lag" this guy is referring to might just be the custom lens on the g400 to lower LOD that distorts the input a bit?

Maybe multi colored mouse pad on your neighbour's desk causes this "lag"?

I knew it was too good to be true. I've searched everywhere for a new mx 518 v1, couldn't find one. Then I searched for a new mx 510. Couldn't find one. A new mx 500? Couldn't find one of those either. (Never buy a classic mouse used, I've learned my lesson). So of course, I had to get the newer g400. I like for there to be no faults with my hardware, being a serious player. No software or anything on my end, and now I find this out, well dang.

The G400 doesn't have any input lag. Using a Deathadder with a 900 step where it halves counts from 1800 native is higher input lag than G400. Some mouse surfaces will give you a feel of negative or positive acceleration, so that might be what you're feeling, using a bad surface/settings for your combination of stuff.

Remember that heavy mice are perceived in a similar way to lag. Or better laggy mice feel as if they where "heavier" in a way.

I was confronting the g400v2 with a g1(800dpi), which is 27g lighter and to me feels better in terms of responsiveness. Opened up "the big one", removed the black plastic the makes the sides and held the clicks on with tape (just for testing).

At 65 grams the g400 feels better than the g1.

EDIT: a second test with a g400 sensor in the g1 shell actually feels a bit slower than the g1 sensor. accurate tests will require time, and maybe another g1 shell. I've got to say though that the g400 feels much more accurate, angle snapping on the g1 is damn heavy!

EDIT2: tested again, nope g400 is just fine. Just heavy and bad foot design. Angle snapping may feel faster because it's forcing your movement in a straight line.
lower polling rates make the cursor appear more jumpy, this can be confused with more responsive.

Atleast the G400s has a lot of input lag, even on its native 800dpi step.
