Higher dpi doesn't mean more accuracy. 9800 is laggier vs. 3090, was the reason for me to pick the KPO over the KP. Besides your conception of laser mice is wrong. They're also optical mice. Only illumination differs. VCSEL might be more accurate than IR/Optical LED, however, there are differences that make the one or the other more appealing to certain people.

I'm not sure if a laser is slightly "better" purely from a technical standpoint. Might be, I remember a couple of knowledgeable members suggesting that. But talking about theoretical numbers is a waste of time. Fact is, at the current state of things the best optical sensors are better than best laser sensors since all lasers have perceivable tracking flaws of some degree.
And nobody decent plays at 4000 dpi. At least generally.

Also forget the dpi numbers. Any modern gaming mouse has enough dpi for 99,9 % of people, dpi is merely the speed your cursor moves at. High dpi doesn't make mice better, actually it can do the opposite, which is the case with DA2013 (plausible input lag).
Thanks for your collaboration. I would like to go deeper in matter of DPI and jitter/input lag/tracking issues.
Input lag/tracking issues~: I've read that this kind of issues is caused by the 1000mhz setting, in fact many korean proplayers prefer to play on lower frequencies like 500mhz, because some CPU can't hold it and also because there is some lag anyway. Well, now I don't think that korean players has CPU problems, so I think it is a problem of all mice.
If the lag is really caused by the frequency and not by the DPI, then you could try to just lower the DPI (most recent mice permit this, if I'm not wrong). You can just set up 500mhz, like many korean gamers on RTS gernes.
DPI~: I just wanted to make you a question, do you disable checkbox "enhance pointer precision" and do you put the lowest pointer speed, while you are using a gaming mouse? (like partially described at this link: http://cyborggaming.com/blog/post/2010/06/04/So-what-is-Mouse-Acceleration.aspx
As far as I know the reason why a player does this is in order to limit the software acceleration that the S.O. often gives, capitalising on the full true DPI given by the mouse. So if you actually lower the pointer speed given by windows and use the DPI you could effectively need all those DPI. I DIDN'T buy many mice, that's why I'm asking to you if what I'm assuming is correct or no.
