    I like the current Sabre I'm using, DPI isn't too important but it seems to still be the one big thing in marketing.
    (And then there's the whole optical vs. laser thing too, think I'm using the laser version of the Sabre myself but I don't really think there's any major differences, at least for most mouse models.)

    Your mouse pointer would be all over the screen with just small movements at a DPI value of 10.000 so it seems kinda pointless to me, after all you're after accuracy / precision and not just speed though nothing prevents you from lowering the DPI of course, that control panel of theirs is pretty good so far plus saving a profile directly to the rom or whatever on the mouse means you don't even need the software running.

    I was thinking the same thing. Are games even playable at 10,000 DPI? I have mine set anywhere between 1,000 and 1,500 depending on the game. Any higher and the pointer goes everywhere.

    Regardless, this is one of the greatest mouses of all time. New Corsair logo. Excellent software to do anything you want. 4 lighting zones. Easy to save profiles. Did have a few problems with some buggy drivers but I don't need to reinstall anything.

    Furthermore, the whole mouse is made out of that nice rubber material. THE WHOLE MOUSE. I cannot tell you how many decently expensive mouses in the last ten years had shiny plastic somewhere on the mouse.

    This thing is near perfect. I had to get my Raptor M45 fixed so I have a brand new one of those too, but those still have some material that kind of rubs down on the sides. Not a bad mouse either. Had a little nicer wheel I think but buttons were in awful position.

    Going to be hard to improve on this thing tbqh for the price.

    10000DPI LOL. I use 800/600 on my desktop with leather pad. This mouse definitely felt different to the M45 at first. I had to tune it for my preference. Still not sure it is perfect but it works fine and I don't comp games with mouses or play FPS's with them.

    Well it depends of your resolution and muscular memory (is that the right name xD ?), I used for years (from like 7 to 17 yo) low DPI mice (800 DPI you know the regular ones you can buy for 1-2 bucks at least in México).

    An recently like 3 years I´ve been using a 3200 DPI mouse and yes at first time you say like WTF!!! where the hell my cursor went XD, but you just increase the DPI progresively until de point is extremely natural to work at everday´s stuff with "high" DPI´s. (i really loved the chage in CAD and in general everything i work in the PC) makes your hand move a lot less is more like a little rotation of the wrist rather than move the whole hand/arm around the table XD.

    ATM my roccat kova + broke and im goin back to a 800 dpi mouse I had reserved while my new one arrives.... damn son is ****ing impossible I would say to play at that very low DPI my hand HURTS!!! I have more fatigue playing 2-3 hours dota/warface with that mouse than I used to feel when i play like 12-18 hours in a free day with a 3.2K DPI mouse.

    I guess at the end of the day is jsut about preferences and if you are used to that DPI.

    High DPI & turn it down ingame is one possibility.
    Have set myself M65 to 2000 and the thumb "sniper" button to 800. This is my all time favorite mouse.

    I've somewhat upgraded to 800, anything far beyond that seems a tad overkill imo.

    To many people play to high of a sensitivity due to this DPI craze.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbBmCNvK5hU&feature=youtu.be

    800dpi 3% ingame, like half a meter or something to turn a full 360°.

    I'm getting to old these days for Quake or CS, but it's enjoyable to see I can still pound people in some games.

    DPI has nothing to do with precision, it's just a way to increase your sensitivity through hardware rather than software (the latter causes precision loss). The gain in precision actually comes from lowering your ingame sens.

    EDIT:

    Well less then half a meter apperently

    Sensitivity 1: GstInput.MouseSensitivity 0.0045
    360° rotation: 41.9982 cm

    I like my 800 dpi setting. I got 1500 for some games that have slower setting for vehicles so I just boost my mouse dpi suddenly turret goes woosh.

    But 10000 is like excessive. It ain't possible (to most) to be precise with dpi setting over 3000 :D Just spray and pray!

    I actually use 8200 dpi for every task on my 40 inch 4k monitor. Before that with triple monitor the 8200 dpi made life a little bit more easy for me. So I'm used to it now.

    Not exactly groundbreaking news since my mouse has 16000 dpi. That said, it is INSANELY fast and I don't use anywhere near 16000...

    I have a pair of the MMO version of these that Corsair makes and I love them. If I need a new mouse with fewer buttons someday this might be at the top of my list.

    *I do everything at 5600-6000 DPI, anything less feels like I'm back on Windows 95 with a trackball. :p
