After reviewing the Anker 8000DPI Gaming mouse - I was intrigued how the 2000DPI one compared.

Here is my review for the 8K DPI one: http://www.overclock.net/products/anker-high-precision-laser-gaming-mouse-with-8000-dpi-9-programmable-buttons-weight-tuning-cartridge-omron-micro-switches/reviews/5629

I found that the 2K DPI mouse was extremely precise, I had no problems browsing, gaming and even using the mouse as a multimedia mouse. It does everything right, apart from a few things, which I feel I should mention:
-Software customisability: I found that the customisability is lacking here. Anker for some reason thought to limit the customisability of the mouse to the end user, whereas with the 8K DPI mouse I could customise everything. By this I mean the colour switching as an easy example to use.
In the 8K DPI mouse I could choose any sort of colour, with ease. However with the 2K DPI one, I cannot customise the colour for a certain DPI. Thus the ONLY way to customise the colour of your mouse, in relation tot he DPI that YOU WANT, you have to first go through the DPI cycle, find the colour you want, then change the DPI rate based on the colour selected. I just find this tiresome, whereas normally I could just change the colour separately, and the DPI would be set separately too.

-Assigning keys: I don't know why Anker created a gaming mouse, but made it hard to assign keys to it. For me a gaming mouse has the ability of setting keys such as "G" or "F" assigned to the buttons of the mouse. This is done to allow the gamer, in this example me playing BF3, to knife or throw a grenade without having to move my fingers off WASD. With the 8K DPI version, I was able to assign a key - it even had a certain tab for you to do it. Now with the 2K DPI mouse, it isn't as easy to do - I have to go and set a macro and whatnot to be able to assign a key to it. I find this again, a bit annoying.

-There is no profile switch button located on the mouse - on the 8K DPI version, I simply press a button, located at the bottom of the mouse and I straight away change profile. In the 2K DPI version, I'm unable to do so.

Apart from the three points mentioned above, I can't find any faults with the mouse. It performs well, feels great and is very good looking. I just feel Anker made this version without the extra little bits and could have refined it a little. Thus why I can't give it any more than a 4/5 stars as the 8K DPI addresses all these issues, and isn't that much more expensive than the 2K DPI version.
