THE QUICK EASY

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS - TEXT BY NANDAGOPAL RA­JAN & PIC­TURES BY RAJWANT RAWAT

Gam­ing is all about pre­ci­sion and this is ex­actly what the Log­itech G400 op­ti­cal mouse touts as its best fea­ture. The mouse is easy to grip and com­fort­able to hold for long hours with the thumb groove on the left adding to feel. The poly­te­traflu­o­roethy­lene feel re­duces fric­tion and makes mouse move­ments very smooth.

This mouse is not pep­pered with but­tons like some high-end gam­ing op­tions. In­stead, there is a back and for­ward but­ton just above the thumb which can be very handy while brows­ing, but takes some get­ting used to. For us, the best fea­ture is un­doubt­edly the three but­tons flank­ing the roller. They let you in­crease and re­duce dpi so that the mouse move­ments slow down or speed up as needed. The third but­ton shifts back to the de­fault dpi in one click. The roller has a bit of la­tency so that you don’t speed away from tar­get dur­ing games. In fact, you can feel the roller move. We would have loved the left and right click to have been smoother, but then that is just a thought. Oth­er­wise, this is a good gam­ing mouse that can also be used as a high-end mouse by reg­u­lar users.
