Help with mouse settings?

I've been trying to not play osu! for 4 years but I guess I'm too addicted to stop playing this shit.

Decided to play osu! again after having got a 2nd hand Logitech G502 from my friend. The problem is that I'm confused about the dpi thingies. I know some who use low dpi like 400-800 and some who use 2000 or more. What are the advantages and drawbacks of high or low dpi settings? Anyone can recommend on what setting I should use? I'm currently using 2400 dpi, no enhance pointer precision or whatever it is called, windows setting is 6/11, game resolution is 1920x1080 and osu! sensitivity is fixed at 1.0x as I'm using Windows 8.1. I'm fine with changing settings because I just started playing again after a long time. Btw, I'm using my notebook (paper) as a mousepad, should I buy a proper one? Is a mousepad worth the money?

1st of, yes you need a mousepad, I can't imagine how to play osu on just paper. Dpi thing goes for speed-accuracy. More dpi > more speed > less accuracy. So if you can hadle high dpi then try it. Also there is a "mouse drift" where your mouse drift away from your pad. High sencitivity and large mousepad can help with that.

Lower DPI is recommended since you just have to move physically faster instead of physically more accurately (which is more difficult). 400-800 DPI are good choices. Since you use Win8.1, you should use letter box mode or full screen to get less input lag. I don't use a proper mousepad but I do advise it and I should probably get one soon.

@Chelsea: when I need a new mousepad, I rip 1 page off my notebook, tape it to the desk and tah dah XD maybe I should afford one

@FieryLight: is 400dpi too low for fullscreen 1080? I tried 400dpi and had to move my whole arm instead of keeping my wrist still and moving just my hand

400dpi is probably way too low for 1080p , around 1k should be enough for similar result as lower resolution with 400dpi, i'm using 1024x768 and 400 dpi, probably could play 1440x1050 but that would cause too much mouse drifting which i already experience on 1024x768... D:
And yes, you need a mousepad, i would suggest thicker ones, i tried one relatively thin and understood that under higher pressure it just bends? and makes weird cursor movement...

I'd keep the ingame sensitivity at 1x. Mouse Players like Wilchq use 800 DPI, which for me personally is too slow. I use 1000 DPI and I am comfortable with that, especially on 1080p Fullscreen. There are good mouse players with high DPI too, like Doomsday for example, he uses 1500 DPI. So as you see, as long as you get used to it, every DPI is fine. A Mousepad is recommended, but not that you can't play without one ;). Take the DPI that you feel comfortable with.

Your settings are fine. Just find your own preferred dpi.
Update your mouse drivers/software, to make sure you're playing at 1000hz polling rate.
Also, a lower dpi means that you really have to buy a big-ass mouse pad.
Also, I hope you don't use the additional weights, because G502 is the heaviest mouse I have ever held even without those.

2nd hand mouse so nope, no additional weights. And I think an A4 sheet is big enough XD Maybe I'll consider a SS QcK+

Make sure that pointer precision is unchecked... when I found out I wasted a week on this game playing with pointer precision on I just switched to tablet
