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...

2000DPI but its laser.. the other is a 3200DPI but its optical

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

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
