    Logitech G600 Review

    Apologies for not posting sooner, My profile switching still does not work, and the line from Logitech (after many emails and fob offs, and then me losing my temper) is that they are aware that under certain combinations of Windows Configuration and running background tasks, the profile switching does not work. My experience with the g500, which went back because of exactly the same problem, tells me that logitech probably are not going to fix this. The g500 is not a new mouse by any means. I can get around the problem by using the profile option 'lock profile while game is running', and i actually love the mouse, its lovely in every way. So I wont be sending this one back. My issue is with Logitech and their unwillingness to publish known problems, i assume for the impact that might have on sales. I would have respected them for that. Because they didnt, I spent 10+ hours trying to get something to work that was never going to no matter what i did. And in the future no doubt thousands of other logitech customers will go through the exact same stress and frustration. Thats how much they care about their customers They did offer me a 50% discount on my next purchase from their store, which I guess works out as around a 10% discount on amazon prices, but I no longer want to own further Logitech products, for fear of other promised functionality not 'functioning'. I know all companies are the same, thats capitalism, but unless people tell them when they treat us badly then nothing will ever change in the world ever ... and im voting with my feet The bug is no longer the issue, its their attitude to their customers ... the mouse is great, as is 80% of the sw I did write a long review a while ago, but lost it before publishing to the dreaded browser forward/back keys ... and unfortunately the whole experience has left me too drained to write any more about it ... but it is great having said that, just so u know, u cant do everything in the onboard profile that u can in the sw profiles, no macros, or i guess anything that takes up more that 1 byte of memory per key ... thats a joke but the amoun of memory in the mouse MUST be absolutely miniscule ... its the only reason i can see for reduced profile functionality Sorry to drone on Have fun!

    Logitech G600 Review

    Got the mouse Friday, impressions of the hardware are very very good. However, the software, whilst very powerful, and leaps and bounds ahead of anything ive used before still has its problems. In fact, ive not played anything much, because automated profile switching still does not work for me, and ive been trying to get it to work rather than do anything else .... D'oh! springs to mind. The only way I can get my d3 profile to auto switch is to set 'Lock the profile whilst the game is running' in the profiles properties. Fingers crossed this will not cause me too many problems if I alt-tab to desktop. Will write properly when ive managed to game with the mouse hehe Cant find a way to copy a profile to the onboard memory either

    Logitech G600 Review

    Wanted to say a big thankyou for all the detailed and invaluable information here guys. I was trying to decide between a Naga and a g600, and having read all you have to say I have ordered a g600 direct from Logitech for £70 (UK). Your info made my decision alot easier The Naga (not the 2012 ver) was £50 on amazon, but was concerned about reviews on amazon.co.uk saying the build quality is not good and them dying within a year ... the 20m click rating of the g600 won it for me, along with the palm v claw, and the easier to find buttons. Im really enjoying D3, and wanting as many mouse buttons as poss bought a Logitech g500 3 weeks ago, which is now going back. Lots of profile activation problems on Win 7 x64, uncomfortable button placings, and a loose feeling wheel. I was wondering if you guys are on Win 7 x64, as people have said profile activation works great on x32, but not on x64 for the g500, and im wondering if im going to have similar problems on the g600. Interesting comment on the tilt, which im assuming is harder to activate than you are used to ... that will actually be a bonus for me as in d3 im using wheel click for healing potion, wheel left for map and wheel right for inventory ... needless to say alot of the time im about to die I end up on my map screen rather than applying a health boost hehe. But this will no doubt now be irrelevant as i probably wont need to assign the wheel tilts to anything with the g600's abundance of buttons I am hoping that the g600's wheel is sturdy ... im not a fan of Logitechs flimsy and noisy wheels, but i guess alot of that has to do with the free spin and tilt mechanisms, so i can live with it if it is I also use 'hold down to force standing still' while firing in d3, can you tell me if the g600 can be programmed to immitate holding down the key? when I finish with d3, ill prob be heading back to sw tor so im really hoping im going to get valuefrom the g600 and that it will last some years ... oh and i went for white :) I have quite big hands, Ill let you know if I wheelie my mouse Thanks again guys ... you really helped me out :)
