    Default 1000 dpi vs. 800 dpi

    So what's the difference between 800 dpi and 1000 dpi?

    The difference is 200 dpi.

    Aside from the math...what does it really do? Like does 200 dpi really make that much of a difference? Also, any suggestions on good wireless mice?

    You gave ABSOLUTELY NO context on what you are talking about. Are you talking about mice? The extra 200 dpi will mean you need to move the mouse slightly less (25% less) to affect the same on-screen change. Chances are good that you wouldn't notice the difference.

    Most gaming mice these days support 800 dpi and 1600 dpi.

    The higher the better. If your a gamer this is important. I use a laser mouse from logitech (G5) and can't stand using anything less. Mine is 2000DPI I believe. I had an MX700 before that-it was still optical but had 800-1600DPI I believe.

    personally, i use a nyko airflow mouse. it has a fan inside that keeps just a thin coat of air between you and the rubber. it was like $6 a long time ago and still works like a charm. i game hardcore. forget BF2 team oriented assist roles nonsense. try FEAR, Counter Strike, UT2004.

    dont worry about dpi. seriously. if you are interested in gaming, just buy a mouse from newegg.com with good reviews. shoot for under $20 unless there is some specific thing you need. do keep in mind that an annoying mouse is unacceptable, because you will use it alot.

    if you're really worried and want some high class mice, you might want some pointers... (excuse my pun)

    Hey, i dont get any of this about the dpi on mice..

    I have used all kinds of mice, an di find all of them to be just about the same. I don't see the bbenefits of having an optical mouse over the traditional "ball" mouse, besides not needing to open the mouse up to clean off the lint every few months.

    My point, is just this:

    It will NOT be noticable AT ALL, unless you have some extraordinary senses, as i don't think my senses are that dull.

    1000 dpi = 1000 dots per inch and 800 dpi = 800 dots per inch.

    Like someone stated earlier, pointer travel will be less with higher dpi's, which in turn will be like having a more sensitive mouse.

    I think most people WILL find a huge difference between optical and the mechancial ball mice, I know I could be blind and just feel the difference when the mouse glides across a surface. between optical and laser its less, but I can use it on more kinds of surfaces with laser. honestly, I have the g5 and g7 and I can't imagine using 2000 dpi, I can just breath and the pointer will move across the whole screen, I always tone it down to about 1100, but its also a matter of preference. I do not believe that you can't tell the difference ball and optical/laser, but then again, its a personal preference.
