Newer G400 and DPI Q.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I bought the G400 when it first came out so I kinda screwed myself. I want to buy it again to have the angle snapping and prediction removed. I don't know why they just release a firmware update. Anyways I was wondering if the newer models also still has the jagged lines problem? I read that the problem can be resolved by setting it to either 800/1800/3600 DPI but the only one that works is 800 DPI. Anything above that still produces it. So if any owners of the newer model could tell me if this problem also is found in the newer mouse I would appreciate it.

My next question is a long long long debated one ever since I got into PC gaming like 8 years ago. Mouse DPI... dum dum dum....
The last time I read up on it it was like 5 years ago when I was gaming on my Dell Dimension 9100 with a 1024*768 CRT. Now I have a 24" ViewSonic VX2453mh-LED with a resolution of 1920*1080. I have always used a DPI of never more than 2000 and a low in-game sens. Would that be ok or now that I have a high resolution monitor should I have a higher DPI and lower in-game sense or vice versa?

Do you use like an insanely high in-game sens? Or are you accustomed to a very slow but surgical precision speed? I use a not too fast not too slow speed. I have 2000DPI with in game sense in BF3 of 0.0425 and I do a 360 in maybe 6-7 inches

Some minor jitter is visible at 1800 CPI, at 3600 CPI it's more obvious.

G400 @ 1800 CPI 1000Hz
339

G400 @ 3600 CPI 1000Hz
398

I had the same confusion regarding DPI settings like OP. I game at 1920x1080 resolution. I initially tried with 1800DPI but then swithced to 800DPI. Feels very precise now. I suggest you try out both thsoe DPI and adjust in-game sens accodringly. You'll have an idea about which one works for you.

Is that with the newer model or the older ones?

I use 1800 DPI with mine(its a new one) I noticed that polling rate also affects the "steadyness" of the mouse. Wtih DPI @1800 and polling rate at 1000 it was crap. jittery and stuff. Put the polling rate back at 500 and it was great!
