Gaming Mouse - What is Dpi

By: Bryan Missey

For newbie pc gamers and veterans alike there is a multitude of gaming mice available. Many young gaming enthusiasts don't know the slightest thing about choosing the proper gaming mouse - and a proper gaming mouse just isn't the best bargain most times. A gaming mouse needs to exhibit features that coincide with the type of games a gamer plans to play.
One needs to think about dpi, balance, and above all else blinding speed. Dpi (dots per inch) is a measure of display resolution or printing. In other words, it is the number of individual dots or pixels that can be produced within a linear one-inch space.

Dpi is very important for a gaming mouse manufacturer. Obviously a 2000dpi gaming mouse can read more dots on its optical surface than one with 800dpi resolution. Most gaming mice can be adjusted from 400-2000dpi depending on the purpose. But most importantly, the more dots a gaming mouse can read, the more accurate the gaming experience.
Balance matters tremendously with a gaming mouse. This is achieved by adding and adjusting weight. If a gaming mouse is too light, it can feel cheap, but more importantly, it will not glide as smooth as one with a properly adjusted weight. Once this is achieved, you have balance. Balance equals better dpi sensitivity, which when used together makes it easier to attain a fantastic speed.
Nobody wants a slow gaming mouse that leaves trails on the screen. Good speed depends on proper weight balance and dpi adjustment.
When deciding on which gaming mouse is right for you, one must take into account dpi, weight adjustment capability, and how they will affect speed. Above all else, to make a good decision on which gaming mouse to purchase, one must start with his or her gaming situation and follow the proper path.
