Logitech apologizes for not making the G400 compatible with Cee-Lo Green hands.

Often you will undershoot your target in FPS games combine that with the fact how unwieldy and slow it is to move this mouse your gameplay becomes extremely poor if you are used to using more normal sensors. This is even more noticeable in RTS games where you can't be fast with the G400 because of the reasons I mentioned.

I just cannot see how I can recommend this mouse to anyone.
So basically, it's so good that it's terrible.

This one time, I, after I upgraded from integrated graphics, my game stopped looking like a power point presentation, and I died because it was no longer in slow motion. Lesson: Intel HD2000 is the best GPU ever.

Also, you came from a WMO 1.1; that doesn't have acceleration. You're not very good at trolling.

Fair enough you dont like the shape of the mouse (I dont either, i use a IME 3.0), but that has nothing to say about how good or bad the mouse is for someone who actually likes the shape.
Anyone who searches your nick on google, and sees this, is not going to take any advice you give, ever.

...I hope

Thread Starter 
Just saying that Logitech G400/500 mice feel like big unwieldy bricks... they have way too much weight to them and combine that with the fact they are so huge you can't be fast and accurate. TBH the only Logitech mice I have ever liked were in the old days the G1, LMO (Logitech Mini Optical) and a few others but now for some reason Logitech has decided to make mice with all sorts of strange grooves on the sides and cramp style mice. The result is very uncomfortable heavy mice that are rubbish for RTS gaming.

I much prefer the shape of the Razer Deathadder to any new Logitech mice (except the G100s not released in UK yet) it also feels much lighter and easier to move around... there are problems with LOD and jitter but apparently there is a tape fix and firmware update so all in all a better mouse.

Does it have to be 800 dpi, since there are dpi steps and 810 is one of those steps of 90? And what mouse has A9080? Taipan 4G?

Diamondback, Spawn, Sauv... mice like that. I think the Rat 3 uses it too? Pretty much every other mouse went downhill the moment they tried to market high DPI mice and people bought into that crap.

My Spawn sucked ass, esp at 800 dpi. But are the A3080/90 the same as A9080? I don't get all the numbering system.
post #90 of 112
Spawn works better than fine at 800 DPI fw61.
