Ever heard: "Learn product before you post review?"
Apparently not, I suggest jumping off cliff as apology.
Its not 6000 CPi (or DPi as you want). Its interpolated 5040 CPi. Cause, guess what? Yes, it has Avago 9500 which has those 5040 CPi as max. Means its interpolated.. means it sux.
Unfortunately every CPi setting is interpolated from unknown reasons, which means it sux double.
It can be hardly called "accurate" as it tends to jump a bit sometimes. Not mentioning that interpolation really isnt gamers friend.
SW is junk. I guess you never saw proper mouse SW.. I suggest buying Logitech G9x or ROCCAT Kone, or if I take only SW in consideration, look at SteelSeries Xai. Those are excelent examples how mouse SW should look.
Gigabyte Ghosts M8000X SW is execelent example how it shouldnt look. But at least its somewhat usable.
Btw. you think that cycling via 5 profiles by ONE! button is clever? I dont, its stupid.
Not being able to shutdown all of ligths is another stupidity (at least that logo can be switched off).
Mouse body is bit thin, but its just feature, not fault.
Overall, this mouse can be hardly taken as "pro-gaming" its more recreational-and-not-much-important gaming. And there are much better mices on market than this. I personaly didnt found anything worth buying on this mouse.
Wish you made your mouse reviews as good as your PSU reviews.
