Logitech G400s / G500s / G700s Review by Takasta - Page 2

post #11 of 73
I had no major complaints about my G400v2, until I realized today how much of a different the coating makes... I have 0% control with the G400, and 100% grip/control with the MX518(which is why I added mousegrips to my G400).

A) How close is the G400s surface to the MX518?

B) Is it possible to swap the surfaces of G400/G400s and MX518? Or some way to mod/paint the surface to match it?

you can just buy an used mx518 like me and swap the shells easily. its just one cable that sits a bit tightly, just need to loosen it a bit with a screwdriver or sth and voila you can easily remove it and thus exchange shells.

This review is biased and dishonest.

All g500s units are defective and produce horrendous input lag due to defective sensor firmware. The Avago 9800 sensor used in the g500s is known to have this issue without a firmware upgrade. Avago released a fix which other mice Mfrs. used to provide users with firmware fix. The Avago sensor in the g500s mouse is using the defective firmware. Same with g600 and logitech refused respond to the community outrage and has not provided a fix nor will they.

Search "g500s lag" on youtube and you will see for yourself.

Question about the G400s as it was hard to find anything about this otherwise, but are 400 and 800 dpi preset dpi settings without using software?
post #16 of 73
Without software there are 400, 800, 2000 and 4000 DPI presets.

Has Logitech fixed their gaming software? That **** was straight up unusable for me w/ my g700. It routinely took it 5-10 minutes just to open. Every time I would try to change the dpi, the program would freeze, and I'd have to close it in the task manager and then reopen it and wait another 5-10 mins to try to change something. Changing button assignments also sometimes caused the same problem, but it was repeatable with the dpi settings almost every time. Also, sometimes the mouse would behave as though I was always clicking on blank desktop space, regardless of where my cursor was or what program/window was active. Searching the web for a fix, I found none, but I did find posts dating back to 2011 complaining of exactly the same problems I was experiencing. Complained to logitech, received no response. I gave up and bought a Savu.
