Dots per inch.

"Dots per inch (DPI, or dpi)[1] is a measure of spatial printing or video or image scanner dot density, in particular the number of individual dots that can be placed in a line within the span of 1 inch (2.54 cm). Similarly, the more newly introduced[2] dots per centimeter (d/cm or dpcm) refers to the number of individuel dots that can be placed within a line of 1 centimeter (≈ 0.393 in)." - Wikipedia

On an unrelated note, I'll never understand what companies keep setting new max caps on DPI... I personally don't know anyone who goes above 3k...

I personally use 800 on some games, and around 1350 for most others.

Marketing (higher number = more sales apparently)

I personally also use 800 dpi and everyone i know doesnt use more than 2000 dpi.

It depends a lot on your resolution, the greater the resolution the more virtual space so you adjust your mouse speed according, on desktop I use 3k DPI and on games I may go down to 2k if 3k feels too fast, but I'm usually on this margin.

I set it to 16,000, just to try and see WHY. I'd barely touch the thing and it flew across the monitor. So dumb lol.

Which is totally understandable, but we've only recently gone into the 16k DPI for mainstream mice. I wonder what will be next, 20k? 24k? Ridiculous.

Obviously there is a point it stops making sense, it's just that there isn't that much quantifiable numbers to expose on an advertise... built quality is harder to advertise than flashing 12k! 16k! DPI

 

The newest optical and laser sensors are awesome for precision at the lower DPI settings, as refined as ever which allows a higher DPI, but that is almost a side effect and manufactures are just trying to profit on those numbers.

 

But there's still use for as high as 4~5 thousand depending the display settings and how much you're used to moving the mice.
