We decided to test lower settings outside of the suggested perimeters and came up with a stable lock at 500/1000/2000/3500. These settings will both satisfy the "core" gamer (500dpi) as well as the casual gamer (1000 or 2000). Again, producing a stable working sensor at any DPI level is not as easy as just turning the dial and hoping for the best.
Per your suggestions, I see you're an avid enthusiast of "claw" grip mice. I think you will like what we're working on for our next model
I'm glad to hear that there isn't a performance hit on higher dpi's and I think those (.5-1-2-3.5) are the perfect settings.
I actually use a palm grip. I used a Xai for a couple weeks and it was a very comfortable mouse to palm, the sensor was just awful. It's not actually that small, about as big as an mx518. Maybe that's a shape that would be a good middle ground for palm/claw grips? Or atleast it's a simple shape that you know will work. Just look at how many quake pro's still use the wmo and 1.1.
I like the approach you guys seem to be taking and really hope you get it right.
