If there's one thing I can say from my performances in competitive multiplayer games since 2007; I've always done my best when I've secured that pixel perfect dpi.
Mind elaborating? Pixel accuracy is a new term for me lol.

some interesting stuff here, guys!

kind of confirms it that i'm pretty rare at the high dpi I do game at. I couldn't immagine dragging my mouse 25cm+ to do a 360 lol. I game on 1440p @ 4800 dpi on the regular, and literally less than a couple inches does one for me, and somehow I can have pretty good accuracy. I'll admit sometimes this mouse will jitter a couple pixels, but I can't stand low sensitivity on mice anymore since my old G9x lol.

Why low such low DPI? Well if you do precise aiming you'll see (especially at 1080p) that a higher DPI has much more jitter than low DPI and higher sensitivity.
BTW when comparing DPI the resolution used matters, 1000dpi is much faster on a 1080p screen than a 1440p screen because there are less pixels to travel across.
This is why I miss my old tactx mouse and I might buy one off ebay somehow lol. I wonder if we could add a list of these types of mice that never artifically do anything to the cursor to help out purists like my self who want no jitters?

only mouse I know of off the top of my head are OEM dell mice, and my old TactX I miss very dearly but Iv'e never done much research on it! willing to edit my main post and add this as a function to help out fellow OCN members

Keep up the awesome informative posts, this is actually pretty interesting

Usually in the ~1600 dpi ballpark, as that's whats comfortable for me on a 1440p desktop.

There is a point where movement becomes bigger than a single pixel you see on the screen.

Think of it like this: if a head in the distance is the size of 2 pixels, and with too low DPI you move 4 pixels at a time, you're going to miss it.

I'm using 1800 dpi at 1440p

Apparently my mouse is less accurate above 1800.

Hmmm, I'll try that. Thanks.

I ended up with a g.skill mouse because I got it on sale during black friday, this thread has reminded me how much I want a G502 to compare. =(
Nothing is ever good enough lol

Depends on the resolution.

On 1080p i run around 600 DPI, at 4k DSR around 1200. both with a 80% reduced sniper button. So down to around 120 at 1080p and 240 at 4k.

If the game has good sensetivity options ill run DPI much higher and reduce the ingame sensetivity.
