Anyone actually gaming at 16000 DPI? Coz at such DPI, you just mildly nudge a mouse and the cursor will move for 5 kilometers... I used to be running at around 3500-4000 DPI and it was just to sensitive. Went back to more comfy 1600 DPI and it's perfect.

Yeah, sometimes i feel it's for marketing since many people think that more dpi will serve them better

It's shaped like pretty much every Razer mouse clone. I have an A4Tech Bloody V3 that might as well be the same mouse and it doesn't need crazy DPI options, sure the sensor is probably not that good, but the shape of the mouse is most important if you plan to use one for long periods.

A word about the Omron switches.
My Razer Deathadder had Omron switches that failed about 2 years after purchase, right after warranty expired. I had issues with double click's.
They where supposed to be 30-Million-Click Omron switches...I don't play that much. :)
I took it apart de-soldered the switches (Omron China) and soldered some new Omron Japan made ones. No issues so far.
On the failed switches the copper(?) parts had oxidation marks. I live in Hungary, not a humid climate country.
So back to this article, it highlights that the Omron switches are Japan made.:rockout:

That high, no, but I've had to increase the DPI to play some games comfortably on my 4K screen, as otherwise it takes too long to move the mouse across the screen.

Yeah I think is the reason we are seeing such high dpi's now. More and more people are using 4k TO game, with Xbox X able to run them and PC's able to run alot of games at 4K and 4K gaming monitors becoming better specced, higher refresh, lower latency etc.

You can increase to max DPI and then reduce the sensitivity, common!
Sensitivity =/= DPI
