On Mouse DPI

Ars Technica has some statements from Robert "Razerguy" Krakoff, the President of Razer, who responds to recent comments by Kim Rom, CMO of SteelSeries, who made the claim that DPI does not matter in gaming mice. Razerguy explains why ultra-high DPI settings are useful for some gamers.

I swear by my 6-year-old Logitech MX518...there have been nicer looking and fancier mice out there, but none can beat it in my opinion, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg either. Goes up to 1600dpi (which I almost never use) and DPI is switchable with two buttons on the top and bottom of the mousewheel and configured in the Logi mouse app (but you don't need the app to use the mouse)...really, what more do you need?

complete agreement. i've been using the 518 since it's release and am still satisfied with it. five buttons, three adjustable sensitivity settings at the hardware level (don't need to install any software to do it). mouse technology really hasn't progressed enough for me to want anything else.

all i can comment on razer about is that i use a razer lycosa keyboard (what can i say, i like shit that lights up but is cheap/light enough to sling around) and have been satisfied with the service they provide. the keyboard's backlighting started to dim and the buttons got finnicky, so i contacted razer and (three years after it's warranty expired) they sent me a new one, without demanding i ship the old one back. how often does that happen anymore?
