Aren't the G400s internals supposed to be same as regular G400?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've read around that the G400s internals are the same as the regular G400 internals, but...

I couldn't help but stumble upon this: http://forums.logitech.com/t5/G-series-Gaming-Mice/G400-vs-G400s-sensor/td-p/1016483

"The G400s sensor is different from a G400 in a way that additional implementation of technology has been added on its optical sensor for improved performance."

Is there any truth in the above statement, or is it some kind of gimmick? Unless an increase of 400 dpi from 3.6k to 4k counts as "improved performance". If any difference I noticed with the G400s vs regular G400 was a bug: http://www.overclock.net/t/1391234/g400s-sensor-problem

However, that test was only done with one unit (my unit), so I don't know if it's applicable to other units.

Some further insight on this would be greatly appreciated. thumb.gif

I have a g400s myself, and I've taken it apart before. I can say that apart from switches with longer lifespans, there are no changes or differences between the g400 and g400s in terms of internals. The "additional implementation of technology" is just an updated sensor SROM and nothing much else. As for the problem that you raised, I can't say for sure that my mouse doesn't exhibit it, because I can't get precise enough to make sure that my mouse is moving in the same direction from right to left and left to right. Sometimes it'll just be skewed a little as I swipe my mouse across slightly diagonally, but what I can say is having used the mouse for over a month the tracking doesn't feel wrong in any way. I think if it's a margin of error of 0.5/26 which is less than 2% the problem can be forgived. Just my two cents:)

giving switches longer lifespans is complete bull**** ^^
i owned an mx518 and the switches (the old 7n with "regular" lifespan, new ones are 10million or 20million) are still perfectly usable, theyve only gotten better as the travel distance of they button was greaty decreased.

other material such as coating, cables etc will break much faster.
