Using DirectInput will remove pointer ballistics, which will make your mouse pointer feel extremely sluggish.

That depends on the type of game you're writing. There are cases (such as an FPS camera) where you most definitely do [i]not[/i] want pointer ballistics (most hardcore multiplayer folks [i]loathe[/i] pointer ballistics). If the mouse is sluggish just provide an in-game option to adjust it's speed, but make it a linear adjustment otherwise players may want to lynch you. ;)

But otherwise, using Raw Input will also bypass ballistics and is about a billion times easier to setup and read from.
