2300 CPI max? That's ok up to 1920x1080. After that you will either have to scroll like mad on the pad or use Windows sensitivity settings, which will lead to distortion- both ways ain't ok. But up to full HD it's alright I guess.

I use 450dpi on my 1920*1080 display. However in games if you have an FOV around 90º 450 is the bare minimum (an increment in the mouse movement is roughly = 1 pixel). 1150dpi is more than enough for to have precise movements at 1920*1080P.

Zowie mice do what they are supposed to: track you movements flawlessly.

I'm using 800 DPI for 1920x1080 and I'm a wrist-anchored fingertip gripper (so I require more sensitivity than most). No one at 1920x1080 needs their DPI in quadruple digits.

Most fps pro players use 400 or 800 and very few 1600. I personally use 1600 and the maximum I ever tried out was 2400 on a Razer laser mouse. That really seems to be the maximum limit if your intention is to actually shoot other people, I found out that the setting was horrible for long range shooting and I actually ended up adapting my style and using more close ranged weapons like shotguns to destroy people at close quarter combat. That's the only benefit that high sensitivity like this can bring in fps, in a room or other part of the level where the distances are very small, you have a big advantage as your turn rate is much faster than the other players at 400 or 800. That's why I settled on 1600 as it also allows me to also have some precision at longer ranges. Cause yeah this is what this mouse is about and not the damn Windows desktop.

As for the mouse itself I cannot say much other that I'm using this exact sensor right now in my CM Storm Recon with a normal lens at 1600DPI and it's the best sensor I ever used. I dunno about the custom lens and the weird DPI steps this mouse has but I assume it will do pretty good.
