Logitech G400 or G600?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello!
I'm wanting to replace my RAT 3 with a mouse that has a very good sensor. I've heard the G400 sensor is still one of the best even today. I also noticed that the G400 has Consistent response ratio technology which I don't see on the G600. I'm very interested in that feature! thumb.gif

Your thoughts please?
Thank you!

Depends on your preferences really. The G600 is more catered towards MMO and RPG players where more buttons, macros and modifiers are important (with less focus on the sensor; it isn't perfect) while the G400 is more of a FPS-style mouse where the focus is entirely on reliable switches and a good sensor.

Considering that your focus seems to be on the sensor, I'd say the G400. Other mice to consider are:

Razer DeathAdder 3.5G
Zowie Gear AM
SteelSeries Sensei

I am sitting here deciding on the G600 and a replacement Razer Naga. The Naga lasted about a year/year and a half. I am much more familiar with it and I like that it feels flexible in how I hold it. I can toss it around and lift it up very easily. The G600 however is a no go with that. If I play at low DPI its hard to lift the mouse because your not including your ring finger in the 'grip' of the mouse. It also feels heavier than the Naga. Maybe its because of losing that extra finger, I don't know.

I do like the fact that you have so many buttons with the G600 over the Naga and the software LGS is pretty substantial.

Thank you!

FYI, RAT3 has pretty much the same sensor as G400, DA and AM. Their implementation could be different of course, giving different performance.

Do you mean the latest rev of RAT 3?

I would also recommend the G400, mostly due to it's sensor. A few things to keep in mind though is that it appears the G400 maintains its perfect tracking at 800 CPI or below, but not quite perfect above that. Another issue I've seen mentioned in several reviews is that installing the drivers can cause some issues. Therefore I would recommend the G400 if you're comfortable staying at 400 or 800 CPI and without installing drivers. (On the other hand, the DA is a solid choice if you're more comfortable at 1800 CPI)

As for the G600, MMO mice are generally not recommended for several reasons. They all use laser sensors, so some amount of acceleration may be present. The weight of these are typically much higher than other mice and using the thumb pad in the midst of playing may cause your mouse control to be not as accurate if you did not have it. Having said that, I did use the G600 to play Guild Wars 2 for a while and ultimately switched back to the G400 for everything. I did find the "ring finger button" (what they call the G Shift) button extremely useful when used as a key instead of a modifier. If used as a modifier however it has several major issues. The worst being using the G Shift key causes you to release your Left/Right Mouse buttons. A few fixes have been mentioned for this including binding the G Shift key to the normal Shift key, but that is a poor excuse for a fix. The other major complaint, albeit personal is the G600 caused me severe wrist pain after prolonged use. I've never experienced such problems with the G400, or other mice such as the DeathAdder. Keep in mind I use a mix of a palm and fingertip grip.

I hope this helps. smile.gif

Yep. I just realized that the optical sensor was placed on RAT3 only in May this year, so your RAT probably still has the PTE?

Get the G400, G600 has some input lag and the almost all the laser sensors has acceleration issues.

I've ordered the G400 and should be with me on Monday to test out. Thanks for the info. I was only interested in the G600 because of the way it looked.

Yes, my RAT must be PTE then. It uses 3200dpi laser, which is not replaced for 3500dpi optical.

I guess newer tech is not always the best bet then.

Rep to all.
