The Logitech G300 packs an awful lot of features into a package which will retail for under $40.

2500 dpi multi-surface optical sensor
Nine programmable controls, three onboard profiles stored in onboard memory
Sculpted ambidextrous shape (no thumb button)
1,000 reports per second communication rate
User-configurable seven-color lighting scheme to make it easy to see which profile you’re using
Easy-to-use software (compatible with G-Series keyboards and headsets)
Durable build - buttons rated for up to 10 million clicks
Source

Now that's snappy!

Does it do anything else besides 2500 dpi?

I dont know a single FPS gamer that plays with anything over 1600... (most are between 400-800)

I realize you can just do the math quick and adjust ingame for the same overall sensitivity, but some games are wack, some people are particular.

If this includes like 400/800/1600/2500 or something like that, then I say GJ logitech. the price point is great also, $39.99.

2500dpi is the max setting. Like mine said 5600dpi. That doesn't mean I'm stuck playing at that. So of course you can set it lower.

Sculpted ambidextrous shape
That kills it for me, ambidextrous shapes are never comfortable. Not that I'd use this mouse over my DeathAdder, but still.

Logitech's website makes no mention of lower steppings :\\ It would be nice to know exactly what they are.

There would exist some lower steppings by default, which would also be user configurable. You can install the logitech software and update the mouse with whatever steppings you desire.

This looks really good. If it says it will retail for under $40, we can expect to see it going around for 30 in a few days or months.
Given the features, I'd say thats a great price.
