DOOM & PUBG
Gaming with the Model O in hand is much like our experience with the Cooler Master counterpart. It is light in hand, easy to swing around on the desktop, and after a while, it makes us wonder why we ever preferred heavier mice! In something like DOOM, we prefer not to lift the mouse, but rather swing around at a moments notice to slay some form of hellspawn. For us, the sweet spot was at 5000 DPI to keep some accuracy and still be able to spin 360-degrees with a few inches of movement. At first, we attempted to run PUBG with 3200 DPI, figuring it would be a "normal" range for us, but sadly our headshots got sloppy, and we were losing the scoped battles. So down we went to 1600 DPI, and while we are lifting the mouse more often, the accuracy pays off big, and to be honest, without this mouse six-kill matches were unheard of. We tended to die long before that by losing the scope on scope long-range game. Not anymore, we are finding more top-five finishes overall, and out K/D ratio has gone up, and we are slinging through missions right and left now!
Windows and Productivity
On a 4K screen, we do have to raise the DPI to 3200 DPI or more to not have to lift the mouse to swing from one side to the other, but at the desktop level, accuracy comes into play much less. Clicking around on icons, ticking in chat boxes, all of that sort of stuff works as intended, and for the time saving minded users, Macros can also help you with shortcuts and things of that nature. Where accuracy comes into play for us is in PhotoShop, editing images to remove dust and small scratches. In this aspect, still at 3200 DPI or more, we didn't run into issues until we got near 7000 DPI, and that is when we saw overshooting of intended targets. While 16,000 DPI seems to be a huge marketing point for mice right now, even with the 12,000 DPI we are offered here, we would prefer a slower, finer tracking sensor, than bragging rights, and by percentage, we get to use more of the scale with the PMW3360. As long as this mouse fits your hand, we strongly urge you to try this out, and for those with smaller hands, you may want to look into the Model O-, as we are seriously impressed with its functionality and capabilities.
