I have the earlier batch of G400 with prediction, and as far as i can tell the side buttons are definitely not omrons as they do not sound and feel as crisp as the main buttons...

Actually the Omrons they use are made in China too... That makes no sence for me because the first thing i do when i get my new mouse it to test it and the second is to change the microswitches biggrin.gif
But anyways, Logitech should NEVER do something like this... The mouse already contains a lot of profits and they might just earn one more dollar or a few cents by changing the switches to a Chinese brand, BUT they will lose buyers who trusts and buys Logitech for its quality.

i don't wanna flame anybody, but "feeling" doesn't say anything about the switch.
there are tons of different shells and switches which all cause a different feeling.
there are even differences in one batch of the same mouse.
i am currently using a steelseries kana with OMRON switches instead of the TTC defaults.
you think they feel like Intelli,Logitech or any other mouse? Nope.
the shell, position of the button (side or main), material of shell.
all of these factors cause the feeling of a click.

Okay then.

The G400 side buttons sound and feel nothing like mx518 buttons. While the main buttons (left and right) do.

Stated it earlier, but a very early run of the G400 was equipped with D2FC for every button.

Sentinel, Sentinel Zero-G, Sentinel II (Higher cost/msrp mice) don't even have Omron switches for main buttons.
Edit: Carter is a nice guy, but I don't think he carefully checks or has an awareness of his own products before speaking out hand. I suppose I understand the reason behind that aswell.

Exactly right... good thing the top daughter board is plug and play from the mx518, you just swap it out.. pin compatible and everything.

the MIDDLE click is tricky... very thin traces, hard to desolder without a solder sucker... Because it's very easy to burn through them..

Also, when you put IN the "new" switch, make sure you do it fast, or you risk melting the housing.

It's not just the D2FC they changed, they are also using different switches for the DPI switch, application switch buttons.

I think EVERYTHING used to be OMRON, because they make those little flat round button switches too, according to their JP website.

But I think the ONLY omron switches left in the newest iteration is the Left and Right click... mad.gifmad.gif Sad day indeed.

DPI buttons were never snap action.
