yes its true it the deathader native setting 1800 and 3500 dpi

There is no need for using 1800+ CPI unless you are using a multi monitor setup. The rest is all marketing, simple.

This is all true but at low sensitivity I'm able to consistently aim faster and with more precision, this is enough reason to use low sens for me.

Subjective subjective subjective topic.

In terms of DA, it will perform well at most settings. Might want to lower polling rate to 125hz if you find a need for 3500 DPI.

Just wondering, but why would you use a polling rate any lower than the mouse's fastest rate?

with higer dpi (450+) in my opinion 1000 hz feels weird like the speeds of the mouse isnt the same even with consistent rates. with 500hz the speed remains the same on slow and fast movements. im not really sure how it works but it feels better to me. its probably why all the pros use 500hz.

I was using 1,000Hz, but it was too sensitive, causing "jitter". Whether that was actual jitter from the mouse itself or my very slight hand movements. Could have even been the mouse pad. Whatever the reason I started using 500Hz.

I feel using a mouse and USB keyboard @ 1,000Hz is too much. On top of that, for me, having a 1,000Hz USB device next to my sound caused noise in the audio signal.

1000 hz is just the your response time between your cpu and your mouse

125 = 8ms
250= 4ms
500 = 2ms
1000= 1ms

1000 hz is okay to use if your cpu is up to date

If you ask more response time is better but it really had to tell the difference between 1ms and 2ms

More data and counts to allocate for. The 3500 Step of the specific sensor/rom is fairly "raw" and subject to what is defined as ripple or commonly referred to as "jitter" when updated every 1000/1000 or 1ms (And even 1000/500 or 2ms). Hard limiting the amount of data passed to a lower timestamp will essentially help smooth out and interpret hand movement quite accurately though response rate is of course lower.

- 1000hz is fine till around 800 or so CPI on most higher end gaming grade CMOS sensors. (ex. DA, G9x)
- The DA's default settings of 1800 and 500hz work fairly good. Not much ripple, though also very fast in terms of response rate.
- Faster response isn't always better (whether that be 500 or 1000hz) Input lag of your monitor could impose in terms of hand and eye coordination. While I wouldn't have imagined using 125hz on my older LCD, I kind of have to on my current 120hz to compensate for lag. -.-

The whole CPU stress is a invalid point if you're playing games in 2012 ^^

Skylit if you dont mind me asking what the input lag of that monitor
