Harlequin Resolution Settings and Dot Shape with Ryobi 3404 DI

Our file handling usually goes as follows: Customer supplied flattened PDFs of resolutions between 300 and 600 dpi are preflighted and sent to the RIP, which is currently set up to RIP at either 1270 dpi or 2540 dpi. Are there any advantages/disadvantages to ripping at the higher resolution? Or is it a moot point?

Also, it was suggested by RTI that most people running this press use the elliptical P dot shape. When we acquired it new, virtually all the prior calibrations were set to the round dot shape. We primarily produce heavy card stock event postcards with heavy coverage and vivid, colorful graphics. Are there any advantages to either?

My main motivation for asking is we are about to send in press calibrations to RTI and we want to be set up in such a way that best suits our needs. Any help would be much appreciated.
