Being well shaped and lightweight in its design, it lends well to fast-paced action as we see in DOOM. Aiming is on point with no jittering at higher DPI levels, and without prediction and angle snapping active in this design, the way you move the DM1 Pro S is what you get on screen. Every click is read, weapon switching is on point due to the segmented action of the scroll wheel, and using the DM1 Pro S feels like an extension of your hand, delivering your will into this game.
Most of our time in this game was done using 4800 DPI, and it is enough to get the job done easily. When attempting to use the 12,000 DPI setting, we found that it was just too much to control accurately and found ourselves spraying a lot of wasted ammunition, not hitting anything.
In the more confined maps of Overwatch, we found this game to be a better test for tracking than with DOOM. With people coming from just about every angle, and needing to swing around at a moment's notice, we again found the DM1 Pro S to be up to the task. The lower DPI settings tended to have us lifting the mouse quite often, and the LOD setting is on point if you choose to game at lower DPI.
For our gaming style, we raised the DPI to at least 2400 DPI but again found the 4800 DPI to be our sweet spot. Since players are in closer proximity in this game, 12,000 DPI can be used as you can still hit your targets quickly, but when it came to larger directional shifts, we did tend to overshoot the mark quite a bit.
Windows and Productivity
On the desktop, all of the DPI settings worked well and were jitter free at all levels. We also tested the DM1 Pro S on many surfaces and found that this mouse reacted the same, no matter the texture or material. Again, the fit in the hand and its lighter weight delivers effortless usage with no fatigue at all. Everything works well for surfing the web, but when it came to photo editing, this is another area where the Dream Machines mouse excelled.
There is no wasted time going back over the same areas, or missing something. While 12,000 DPI is again a bit tough to utilize in gaming, it is also tough to use when it comes to finite controls and actions, leaving us with no reasons to quickly move away from this mouse, in any aspect of its usage.
