Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum announced - Page 192

post #1911 of 2273
The best way to describe my G900 is that it's a Jack of All Trades But Master of None. Meaning, it's okay for FPS, web browsing, RTS, MMO, etc., but if I really needed to play my best competitively in an FPS game, I'll definitely go to my G303 or DeathAdder Chroma (subjective of course). I find those mice to be easier to whip for snap aiming.

^^Best single sentence description I've seen tbh. I think it's very above average to great for FPS gaming personally, but I can see how that would not be the case for most grip and aiming styles.

Just think of the G900 as the G502 that SHOULD have been (if you intend to use it wired). Ignoring the RGB's, it fixes every big flaw the G502 had, and weighs the same as a Deathadder.
Not tilt heavy favoring one side, no strange plastic triangle grooves on the underside (which just exasperates the tilt heavy issue with that part catching on pads), no love/hate sniper button, no rubber grips that eventually wear down and "melt' with extended use (even though this does help grip, it gets unsightly in the future), etc.

duh? the g502 and g900 are different enough products that they can co-exist and huge amount of g502 sold tells us it found its audience at least.
post #1916 of 2273
What does that have to do with the flaws of the G502?
I own both mice. So I think I know what I'm talking about here. You're spamming red herring fallacies. I'm talking about simple facts.

Hey guys ... I recently got the G900 and am loving everything about it.

I would like to know if there is a way to change the auto-sleep timer, so the mouse goes to sleep faster when inactive (to save battery). By default I think it takes ~30 minutes to do so, but I would like to change that if possible.

I have yet to figure this out myself. I personally never thought Logitech had great peripheral software. There isn't even a direct way to handle the mouse's lift off distance (basically, surface calibration is Logitech's idea of LOD control) let alone the amount of time idle before your mouse goes to sleep.

I personally started gaming with my G900 wired. Mainly because I got tired of charging it. My copy (with the LEDs turned off) seems to drain the battery quicker than usual. It could be the software miscalculating whatever power I have left over but after gaming for only an hour or so, a full charge will drop to 60% of battery life left. Maybe it's because of the 1000hz polling rate? Who knows.

A full charge down to 60%, in an hour?

That can't be right. Mine has click issues but it lasts its advertised duration here. You might be having a defect on that side of things. I'm running it at it's rated 1khz as well, even though it polls it between 500 and 1k.

On the other hand, I'm having serious issues contacting Logitech support...

I would hate to RMA this thing. It's one of my favorite mice. But I'm not exaggerating. Even with the LEDs off, after 1+ hour of playing BF4, the battery meter via LGS states 60% left. When I plug it via USB, it jumps back up to almost 85%. I either have a defective unit or the software can't effectively tell me how much battery life my G900 really has. In any case, I just play with a nice flimsy rubber USB cable attached. And yep, contacting Logitech support is hit and miss. If you pipe up a storm on their 'Community' forums, someone will get you customer support immediately
