How to check real dpi?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is there any software to check such thing?

I need it because when I'm calculating 400-> 1800 dpi, it is still different. 1800 dpi seems to be slower.

There is Enotus mouse-test for example, and outerpace's IPS logger. There are topics about this on the forum. Just search for "mouse testing" and they should pop up.

Enotus is accurate, just put a ruler on top of your mouse and move it 10 cm. I always guide by the point where the cable goes into the mouse. It will give you a result that is +/- 5 of your exact dpi. You'll see how much a bit of movement influences the dpi value so it is easy enough to guess the margin of error.

Is Enotus supposed to be used only with optical mice? Because with my laser mouse I get "n/a" for all fields except resolution.

Works fine on my Sensei.

The only thing to keep in mind is that it snaps to specfic CPIs for some reason, like 200, 400, 600, etc. but before you release the mouse button you are measuring in 1 CPI increments.

When testing maximum perfect control speed, just make sure you don't click any of the buttons on the mouse while you are violently flicking and swiping it across your pad and the numbers come out pretty damn accurate.
