Pros: - Two fingered scrolling feature is FANTASTIC. Using LMB plus scrollbar usually results in scrolling too fast. Using arrow keys or the scrollbar arrows usually results in scrolling too slow. Using two fingers on the touchpad to scroll is much more accurate and is probably the closest thing to having a built in scrollwheel on the keyboard. It's by far my favorite feature on the keyboard.
- Despite being refurbished, the build quality is good (more on that below).
- Range and battery life are great. No complaints. A range extender is included, but I don't use it.
- I prefer the way the keys are setup on this one compared to old K400 model. I don't have the first gen model to compare, but reading reviews led me to getting this one.
- Priced right.
Cons: - Cheap finish (more on that below).
- No Caps lock light.
- Batteries not included.
Other Thoughts: I'm glad Newegg offers the refurbished/recertified option because I would not pay MSRP for this keyboard brand new, despite the high rating I give it. While I think the build quality is solid, the finish is pretty cheap. What I mean is that it's not going to break on you while using it, but it feels like they used the lowest end materials possible.
As for typing and using the touchpad, it's perfectly acceptable for HTPC use. Because the keyboard itself is slightly more cramped than normal, I wouldn't want to use it for writing term papers or any large amounts of office work. But for social media, general browsing, and streaming video content from your couch, it's perfect.
To sum up, I've had absolutely no problems with this so far, and I don't expect I will. Unless you're super picky with warranties and break things all the time, get this one. The refurbished/recertified Logitech K400 Plus is priced right and a great buy!
Pros: + Very accurate sensor. I don't have any problems with jitter.
+ Left and right click are perfect for me, with just the right amount of force to press.
+ Side buttons are also clicky and easy to reach.
+ I like the sniper button. Works as intended, or it makes a good push to talk button, or remap it to anything else. My thumb rests on it so I have no problem reaching it, and it doesn't affect my grip.
+ Capable of extremely fast movements across your mouse pad if you play those sorts of games. (I don't but I put it here anyway)
+ My whole setup is black and blue so I personally really like the black color and blue LEDs.
+ Can use 1, 2, 3, or all 4 CPI steps, and they can be changed in increments of 80 from 240 to 4000.
+ Software is simple and easy to use.
Cons: - My ring finger sits under the lip on the right side, so it's kind of an odd pressure point. I'd much rather rest it naturally, but it's not uncomfortable.
- With the way I grip it, there's nowhere for my pinkie finger to go. I basically press it up against my ring finger and it just hangs there. If you claw it more than I do, then you may be able to use both fingers to grip the side. Both this and the first con are pretty minor, and are more of a result of me changing from a much smaller mouse to a much larger mouse.
- The scroll button is a hard press.
- I'd rather have the CPI buttons in the center behind the scroll wheel. I don't use them often, but still...
Other Thoughts: I got the G402 to replace my old CM Storm Spawn. Obviously, they are completely different mice, and I took a few days to get used to a larger mouse. I honestly wasn't sure if I liked it or not until I spent a few days gaming with it and I realized how much more I enjoyed using it. As I get older I was wanting a mouse that filled my hand better to reduce cramping, which this mouse does very well. I have a sort of palm/claw mixed grip, and my hand is about 180-190mm from finger tip to the base of my palm, for reference. Overall, this is a great gaming mouse that is accurate and pretty comfortable, which were the two most important factors I had.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XTRAC PADS Carbonic Professional Gaming Mouse Pad
Pros: + Super smooth and fast surface
+ No problems with tracking accuracy
+ Perfect size for someone who doesn't need a mouse pad that takes up half their desk to play games
+ Pad does not shift around on my wood desk at all
+ Laser cut edges to prevent fraying
Cons: - I was going to make a joke about needing to update the mouse pad's firmware, but then I figured some people might think I was serious. So just pretend there's a joke here. Really, I don't have any cons.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a really cheap, awful, and old cloth mouse pad that I used for years because I decided to go for something gaming oriented. I can't tell you how well this compares to other gaming mouse pads (probably pretty well), but if you're using something you can buy in any store, I'm sure this is a decent upgrade. Some may say the pad is a little too small, but I don't play CSGO. I have no need for a massive mouse pad for use with a mouse at tiny CPI levels.
The pricing on this pad is pretty competitive. I found most gaming mouse pads were either in this price range or MUCH more expensive. The quality seems to be top notch and I don't feel like I had to spend an arm and a leg on something labeled for specifically for gaming.
