Microsoft Comfort 4500
« on: 09:14 AM - 07/28/14 »
I have the Microsoft Comfort Mouse 4500 (just layin' around in the house) and I was wondering if it will be compatible with XIM4? I did a google search and checked the hardware compatibility thread and it's not mentioned there. However, it's confirmed to not work with XIM3/EDGE. So I expect it not to work but I'm asking just to be sure.

My next question is are Logitech G400s and G500s any good and for which one should I go (as the prices are identical)?

g400s is the better of the two because of the better sensor

your microsoft mouse is fine as long as it as more DPI than 1600-1800, thats the minimum you would want to use with a XIM for good mouse experience

Microsoft says 1000 dpi, so G400 it is then. Thanks

I did some research and some people love the MX518 and hate the G400; and vice versa. Which one would you recommend and which one works better with XIM?

mx518 is not as good as the g400 because its sensor is not as good, it has inbuilt acceleration and therefore isnt as precise as the g400
overall the g400 is the better product from the specs, personal oppinions do of course vary :)

Thanks. Last question (I hope ;D ;D): I'm actually finding it difficult to find a G400 and keep finding G400s which is actually cheaper. Is there a significant difference, which one is better. I read that the G400s are

Sorry for being so annoying but I have a laptop so I don't really need a mouse for anything but the XIM4 and I just want to make sure that I'm getting the best hardware possible.  :-[


edit: And where the G502 stacks against them? From I've read I won't be able to map all 11 mouse buttons but this is not really an issue for me.

the g400s is the newer model, its basically a g400 with slightly better specs, so id go for it ofc
the print on it looks a bit ugly though haha

the g502 is also a great mouse, it has a flawless sensor too just like the g400/g400s
the mouse is new and gets a lot of love in the forum so far, it soon should also get full compatibility for all the buttons (if they dont work already with the latest firmware) :)

You're absolutely golden, mate. I really do appreciate your time :)

So it's G400s/G502 depending on which I can get a better offer. Thank you so much.

you will like both, g400(s) is great for middle/small hands, the g502 suits all hands and is the better pick for larger hands imo
