Logitech G400s 910-003589 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Love: It's what makes a G400 a G400 05/07/2014

This review is from: Logitech G400s 910-003589 Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 4000 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Great sensor
Great form factor for fat hands
Useful drivers
Easy to configure/use

Cons: Cord tends to die if you're violent with the mouse
Mouse buttons lose click-i-ness after about 600-700 hours of hardcore Counter-Strike + Quake
Fat mouse, and therefore is heavier than basically everything else

Other Thoughts: I love the G400s. After my beloved G400 lost its connectivity (R.I.P), I went out to buy another mouse. I heard from a tech website that the G400 was beginning to be phased out by Logitech. Saddened, I began a quest to find a new perfect mouse. I had tried the Razer Deathadder 2013 as a replacement, but it just felt wrong for my grip. I tried out a Zowie F K, but my fat hands didn't fit on it properly. I had almost lost hope. Suddenly, a light shone through my monitor. Newegg revealed that the G400 had been replaced by the G400s. I purchased one in a heartbeat. I've been using it ever since.

In my cons section, I noted the issue of the connectivity of the cable. This has been a problem for some people, but is easily avoided if one simply follows these steps:
1 - Don't launch it across the room in a fit of violent rage
2 - Pull slack up from behind your desk and tape the cable such that the connection of the cable to the mouse itself never experiences any tension or pull
3 - Avoid pulling BACK on the mouse as much as possible (read: don't flick downward ingame if you haven't gotten enough slack)

I've made sure to follow these rules and my G400s has been in good health for the past 3 seasons.

TL;DR: get one. Now.

Plantronics GameCom 780 Stereo Corded Headset Recreational Comfortable Design
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Good for Entry Level 05/07/2014

This review is from: Plantronics GameCom 780 Stereo Corded Headset Recreational Comfortable Design

Pros: Provides okay 7.1 emulation
VERY sturdy build quality (I slam my headset on my desk sometimes)
Built-in Mute and Volume

Cons: Decent at best sound
Awful microphone
Wire coils way too often after consistent use
Ear pads difficult to clean, torn easily
Not very comfortable
Not true 7.1

Other Thoughts: The Gamecom 780's were my first real headset for playing videogames. I'd used them consistently for about 2 years or so. After that time, I picked up both an ATH-AD700 and a JVC HARX700 w/ ModMics. The AD700 and HARX700 both blew the Gamecom headset out of the water.

The Gamecom 780 is designed for entry level gaming, and that only. Music and high level competitive play are not optimal under the 780. For the price, it's probably better to get a good quality set of headphones and get a clip on mic or a ModMic.
