TF2 Mouse sensitivity

Don't know how to get out of spawn? HLSS plays sounds really slowly? Or you need a dispenser? Come here!

Just curious, what do folks keep their mouse sensitivity at in game? I'm looking at the relativley safe idea of playing Sniper, and wondering what a good setting is.

I keep mine at the halfway point, then again I have a 4000 dpi mouse. >.>

So how do I figure out what my mouse's dpi is?

DPI settings only really come into effect with a gaming mouse, like logitec G5 mouse or a Razor or something. normal mice don't have this setting. (I did notice that the default setting on my mouse was 800DPI, which felt like my old normal mouse.)

Now, Fernin, wtf mouse do you have that has 4000 DPI, the highest I've seen is 2000. O_o

My mouse settings are as, 1200 dpi, ingame sens at 4 with zoom_sensitivity_ratio .75 (Reduces the ingame sens to 3 when zoomed in for sniping, making hitting heads easier) My mouse maxes out at 1800 DPI but I have a hard enough time keeping the mouse still at 1200dpi that any higher would probably not work for me.

Mine goes up and down depending on class, actually, and my current mood. I keep it rather low in-game however, as my mouse is the MOST hypersensitive thing on the planet, and so much as nudging it will wheel me 'round a full 180 if I don't.

So for say Sniper, would a higher sensitivity be wiser, or lower?

Razer's Lachesis gaming mouse. One of the better gaming mice I've used...Actually, it's probably the best.

So long as the Razer syndrome that causes their mice to have lower ratings on newegg doesn't show up. :P

How long have you had it? I have a logitec MX518, their lowest gaming mouse, below the G5. but I've only had it for a couple of months so far.
