This review is about the Logitech G400. However, I’ll start talking about a different mouse. Back in mid-2011, I reviewed the Razer Deathadder. This was my main mouse for around 18 months, until it started suffering from the dreaded double click of doom – the left mouse button started treating most clicks as a double click. The mouse was deemed irreparable by Razer and my money was returned. Being in the market for a new mouse, I decided to go for something new.
After some time browsing on-line reviews, forum posts, blog posts and other miscellaneous tidbits of information, I decided to go for what Logitech calls “the new MX518”: the G400. Its predecessor is one of the most trusted gaming mice in the market, being sturdy and efficient. The G400 is supposed to retain those characteristics and improve on them. I’ve ordered it on Amazon for €30. This makes it considerably cheaper than the Deathadder, which can be good news for gamers on a budget… if the G400 lives up to its expectations.
