Question Solved: What is DPI?
Could someone explain to me what DPI is? I'm looking into the Logitech G400 mouse and I have no clue what that means.

DPI = Dots Per Inch

How it relates to mice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_(...g)#Mouse_speed

Your link also references it:

Basically the higher the value the more sensitive or precise the movement is, or at least should be.

You'd have to look up the model on the internet.
