    16000 dpi, ok I'm sold, I'm getting one - my 12000dpi is just too slow! You know I'm not being serious, I'm really happy with my Logitech G303, the best mouse I've owned, made a difference to my gaming, very accurate sensor & low latency quick clicking. I'm thinking all these bigger numbers are getting a bit senseless (talking dpi, ips, G rating) - for instance the G303 has 12000 dpi, >40G, and >300ips - and I'm pretty sure that no gamer needs more than that already, they'd never push the acceleration & ips beyond those limits already, so bigger numbers than that are senseless in my opinion. Durability, ergonomics for specific types of grip, and perhaps creating even more accurate sensors could be a way forward though - although there are a few sensors on the market that are already considered perfect & flawless in tracking with zero acceleration, the PMW 3366 in the G303 for example (did I tell you I like that mouse!).

    "Hyperesponse buttons" sound like something that will cause a truckload of accidental button clicks. You know, hypersensitive buttons.

    Meanwhile, CS pros are still playing on 400 dpi. That being said, I am all about the DeathAdder and will also be replacing it with more DeathAdders as they break, lol. The dpi is such nonsense imo though.

    I'll stick to my Roccat Kova thank you. Last time i bought a mouse from Razer, the right click was already broken, then when i pressed the left click that one broke too. And that was straight out of the box brand new XD

    I see they still refused to use tilt/wheel 4way...

    A gaming mouse is not gaming mouse if it dont have 4 way tilt wheel as far as i concerned and there alot gaming mouse that dont have this.

    Noone knows yet for sure.

    But 16K is in line what the 3360 can do (if pushed further).

    Tbh, considering my past experiences with Razer I'd rather get the Logitech G403:

    Atm I'm deciding whether to use the G Pro or Nixeus Revel.

    I will never ever get over this:

    What's the grip/materials like over your G303 Robbo?

    Was gonna buy one the other day but couldn't take it out of the box for a demo - my Death Adder Chroma is slippery on its rubber textured side 'grips' for my fingers at certain times - makes it hard to game - does your G303 slip at all?

    The sides where you grip is very smooth plastic.

    Any Logitech tech mouse from this range will pretty much give you the same performance as the G303: G900, G403, G Pro.

    G Pro is a slightly grainy plastic.

    Slightly grainy hard plastic sides on the portion that you hold, the very rear of the mouse on the sides is smooth where the lighting is, but you generally don't hold that portion. I use a fingertip grip with 19.5cm long hands, and I find I can grip & move the mouse well, including lifting it up without problems. Mouse buttons are smoother hard plastic than the sides, but a small amount of texture, not as grainy as sides. It's a very light mouse, yet feels solidly built. The buttons are fantastic, very quick to press, can do lots of clicks in short space of time, responsive, but not so light that accidentally pressed. I don't have issues with the G303 slipping in my hand - has never happened - the sides are also slightly angled (narrower at the bottom), which makes it easier to grip & lift the mouse without slipping. Best mouse I've used, previous mice: Logitech G9x, Corsair M45. (I'm a high sensitivity gamer: 12cm per 360).
