with their Zone Touch T-400 mouse
I'm writing this from the perspective of a frustrated PC gamer, so that's why I picked that category.
So anyway, Logitech has graced us with a cute mouse with a touch pad instead of a mouse wheel.
Seems to work fine, right up until you try to select a particular tool in Minecraft. The limitations of this device and the poor configurability are very clear there, as you frantically attempt to scroll to your sword and take out that creeper who's just spotted you. Time to run like a little girl.
I did contact Logitech customer support and although they were very nice, their response boiled down to 'lol buy a real gaming mouse.'
Yeah. Been there, done that already. I have a museum full of mice with scroll wheels that have stopped working properly, resulting in the same 'RUN, RUN, RUUUUN' scenario as detailed above.
What I want to know is, how long do hardware companies keep expecting us to buy their overpriced rubbish that stops working properly? I thought the idea behind the T-400 was pretty sound, you eliminate moving parts and increase the lifetime of the product. Turns out it's just another gimmick, folks. Features, but no support.
Now okay, the above you can say is hyperbole. Fine. But the middle mouse button (click the touch zone) of the T-400 will not work in older games - fact. Apparently the guys at Logitech failed to pick up on that glaring flaw during testing. Draw your own conclusions.
I'll be going back to the store where I bought this poor, misunderstood mouse and getting something more traditional. Right now.
