    I think my $9 mouse is 800dpi :laugh:, and I feel I have a fantastic reaction time with it, but need to RMA my MX Rev.

    Personal preference. I’d rather have precise shots than shots that are all over the place. I am sure I could train myself to play @ 4,000 but I like being in control of my cursor.

    I think mine is currently around 1500 or so but I have 4 profiles on my mouse and the fastest (or tank rape as I call it) is 5600DPI horizontally and 2000DPI vertically. It's almost unfair... like Eyefinity.

    I've been considering getting a new mouse for exactly this reason - throwing a tank around at 1800dpi isn't much different to 800dpi. Pretty hard task finding an appropriate mouse though. I have fucking big hands, so it needs to be big and heavy, and it needs to have at least as many buttons as my MX518.

    The MS Sidewinder mice a good for huge hands. The mouse I have (Rapoo V3) is absolutely amazing I bought 2 of them and sold one to a friend. He has huge hands where I am closer so med and the mouse works well for both of us.

    WTF? I don't get why people need 4000 dpi and such haha it sounds crazy to me :S

    I use 1000 DPI and it does full 180 turn with 1*1/2 slides on my mouse pad which in my preference is perfect.



    oh and @triptex do you think that mouse will do better than my G5? I think Its time I buy a new mouse.

    Didnt ever use a G5 so I can't be sure. I can say the feet on this mouse are amazing. The material is very similar to the Teflon feet on the Razer Mamba and has shown no wear since I bought it.

    I'll give it a shot when I get home. :toast:

    4000DPI makes a difference when your screen is 5670x1080. For anything other than eyefinity, I drop it down to 1600. 1600 means that I have to lift the mouse twice off the desk, to make a full circle.

    I highly recommend the Lachesis, it has served me well. (I have reasonably large hands. it is NOT heavy though (which I like)

    as far as precision, if I am doing long range sniping I tone it down. however, I had to up the in-game sensitivity (.5 standard to .55) because I was getting a sluggish feeling when I played. I plan on upping it to .6 when I finish Sniper class. as assault I could land head-shots with the AN-94 almost every kill (so long as you didn't pop around a corner making me twitch my cursor out of the screen)


    I used to play on 2700ish but when I moved to a 24inch monitor it wasn't enough. I can do 2.5-3 full turns before lifting my mouse.

    I love my Lachesis when it works. I've been through three of them now. The first one barely worked, there was a short in the sensor. The 2nd one worked great for two weeks and died. The third, is quickly dying as well. The sensors they use in the Lachesis are utter garbage, and I'm done with them.

    wow. I have never had a single issue (14 months or so) other than the LED no longer matches my case (my fault)

    The difference between High and Medium are so hard to tell, I now play on medium because I couldn't tell a difference.

    yeah, my razer (deathadder) died in under 10 months. I keep very good care of my hardware/periphs ... one of the few things i do take care of :)

    no more razer for me, logitech serves me well... if I can find trips mouse in the US i want that one though :)
