Mouse DPI Switching

Specs: na, na
I was looking at mice recently and found several that offered selectable DPIs. Some even have buttons on the mouse to change the DPI setting on the fly. Why would you need to change the DPI? wouldn't a higher DPI always be better?

DPI = Sensitivity = Speed

Hopping around, shooting at everything w/ high sensitivity = Good!

Hiding in the shadows, sniper rifle in hand w/ low sensitivity = Good!

Basically, it's an acknowledgement that one speed does not fit all, and it’s generally easier to set up than aliases and bindings, assuming your FPS of choice even supports such actions.

where i work some people have theirs in different settings, sometimes I might be showing them how to do something and you move their mouse slightly and the arrow moves right accross the screen (too far)and then it's hard to get the arrow where you want as it keeps going past what you want to click on, I suppose they get used to it. You set it to what is comfortable for you

snake oil! i say snake oil!

pfff why on earth would you want a higher sensitivity in a game using a button on the side of the mouse. yep higher sensitivy may help. but for a long time games have aloud you to increase the sensitiviy in the options.

i think its a fad for the kids with too much cash. buy this and youll be amazing at counter strike. no youll just get fatter form sitting in the chair and moving your arm less (less excersize). also this mouse will now more acuratly help you over shoot the target cos you was poop at it in the first place.

all text needs typos. There there for the reader to find,to distract them from the total lack of content.
google it! wasnt the answer to the question i asked so dont be dense and give me that repl

Higher sensitivity isn't the issue; it's the ability to change sensitivity on the fly. And they don't have to learn CS' console commands bind and alias.
