What's the Best DPI for Razer Deathadder Elite Gaming Mouse?


New member
Hey, I have a question the mouse experts here. I just got the Razer DeathAdder Elite and I'm trying to figure out what's the best DPI for the mouse. It does up to 16,000 DPI maximum, but that's way too fast for me even after 5,000 DPI. What does everybody else use?

Not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean the best DPI as in the one with the least amount of acceleration/smoothing/jitter/etc.? Or just the best as in preference? If that's the case, the best DPI would probably be different for everyone. The 16,000 is the maximum, but as you've found out, probably very few people go beyond even 5,000 DPI. 

Personally, I like to use my mouse between 1600DPI to 2800DPI normally. Maybe as low as 800DPI or 6400DPI for certain games. Low DPI for sniping and higher DPI for spinning turrets on tanks come to mind. Good choice in gaming mouse BTW. The DA Elite is one of my favorites.
