    I didn't get it, are these mice 3200 DPI or 2000 DPI? There must be a mistake.

    It's two models, one is 2000dpi and one is 3200dpi...
    So the (presumably) expensive macro model has a less impressive sensor than the gaming model... doesn't make a lot of sense really...

    And I thought laser mice have larger DPI than optical ones...Wasn't that the purpose behind introducing laser engines?

    Now that I'm used to my modded Raven Mouse, I would still like some more buttons!

    All of the following can be programmed to macros or any commands with X Mouse Button Control

    1 LMB
    2 RMB
    3 Middle MB
    4 Tilt Wheel L button
    5 Tilt Wheel R button
    6 wheel up
    7 wheel dn
    8 forward (side button 1)
    9 back (side button 2)

    And the non programmable:

    10 pg up
    11 pg dn
    12 flip3d wheel up
    13 flip3d wheel dn
    14 DPI button
