For our testing, we opted to test the mouse with the preset DPI levels and have a go at gaming. The first four settings do not fit our game style, as we are constantly lifting the mouse, and is whey Dream Machines sets a hard 1.8mm LOD in the DM1 FPS. You have to control the cursor with a tighter grip if you are asking us to lift the mouse frequently.

However, the 4800DPI level was perfect for our usage, and in doom we were flinging around to kill enemies without issue, and shockingly, at suck high DPI range, when you slow down for accuracy, it is like holding a sniper button without all the effort. This also came into play with PUBG. It is the DM1 FPS that has been the vast majority of the reason we have upped our stats over the past couple of weeks.

You have to have the right tool for the job, and for us, the DM1 FPS has given us one of the smoothest, most accurate feelings in a mouse than we have had in a while. A mouse such as this is rare, where we have a product that on paper seems like an average offering, but once in the hand, all preconceived notions fly out the window.

Windows and Productivity

We also found that the same feelings we got in gaming, we felt at the desktop level too. You can easily fling the mouse around on a 4K screen, and when hovering over an icon, the mouse seems to sense that it is time to be more accurate, and does what you need of it. This also rang true when it came down to image doing.

Removing dust and scratches is a lot of our time spent in editing, and while using the DM1 FPS, we were finding less to go back and touch again, and without any angle snapping present, the cursor moved exactly as our hand told it to. The feel also comes into play here, as it would in gaming, as we feel no stress from hours of gameplay of hours at work.
