Logitech Revamps MX518 Gaming Mouse, Results In G400
If you look closely, you'll see that the overall design of the G400 is very similar to that of the MX518, and that's intentional. Logitech went out of their way to maintain the parts that people loved, while improving where necessary. They cranked up the 1800DPI sensor to a higher-resolution 3600DPI sensor, and of course, DPI adjustments can be made on the fly (to 400, 800, 1800, and now 3600 DPI) with no software required. The company also boosted the report rate from 125 to 1000 reports per second, which is said to be as fast as USB can communicate. The USB cable itself has been made thinner and 25% lighter, and the optional button programming software now enables users to tweak the functions further.
It'll retail for $49.99 and should ship in the U.S. on June 19; the rest of the world will see it in mid-July. Impulse buy, perhaps?
