Explain it all please (MOUSE DPI)


I got the hang of what dpi means but i pictured something with a simple bar that goes up and down whilst choosing what the dpi to be... Not this alien looking thing.

I want some expert to explain me what all of this means --

Why all the DPI/1/2/3/4/5 when i thought it was going to be a single thing ?

What's *LINK XY* ?

Any additional information would be nice.

P.S. ALRIGHT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO UPLOAD PICTURES ON THIS SITE! > http://imgur.com/a/BxOZT

  1. Basically it's sensitivity.
    The higher the number the slower it moves.

    The 1-5 numbers are purely arbitrarily assigned. Maybe 1 is slow and 5 is fast. Maybe other way around. Just choose a number that you like and forget about it.
  2. The fact is that they are all ticked > http://imgur.com/a/BxOZT Take a look at the picture. The link is save, i believe you know what imgur is.
  3. You can probably untick profiles to disable them.
    Does the mouse have a physical DPI switch button? If so, any unticked profiles won't be selectable with that button.

    Link XY, this links the X and Y axis movements for the mouse when changing the DPI, if you unselect this you can change both the X and Y axis movements of the mouse independently.

    This hurts my brain... Maybe i'm stupid who knows.

    The mouse is called > Redragon M903 Origin 4,000 DPI Gaming Mouse. But i think i got the basics, so if i disable one out of the 5 will i lose any advantages ? Or should i leave them all ticked (on) ?

    ^ Yep.

    Ok, a bit clearer with photos now.

    -Maybe you only want two profiles and don't want to have to click through #3, 4 and 5 to get back to #1.

    -Link XY is having the same DPI for horizontal and vertical. For some odd reason people might like different rates for both.

    This is a great example of a lot of PC products/software that just overly complicate things, or maybe you just need to buy products that better suit your needs.
