Logitech G400S Review

2

Manufactuer: Logitech
Model: G400s
RRP: £50

Today’s review focuses on the mid-range product offering of Logitech’s ‘G’ range of mice – the G400S – which is a newer revision of the now end-of-line G400. Logitech revamped their whole mouse line-up earlier this year, and as it’s approaching Christmas, could the G400S be an ideal present for someone you know? Let’s find out!

A little bit about Logitech:

Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. We started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. We became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and have reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users.

With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech’s leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control.

From the specs we can see that the G400s hits all the right notes with a ~4000DPi and a 1000Hz polling rate. Logitech’s new series of mice also have what they call ‘Delta Zero’ technology which is an LED illuminted sensor to maintain a more dependable level of feedback to the sensor rather than traditional lighting method. Add to this the 20 million click capable buttons backed by legendary Logitech after sales service and the G400s is seriously appealing – so let’s take a closer look!
