I have just under 1100 LOH and it does the trick just fine for me at 60kdps

Some classes should switch at 50k sheet dps.
Most classes should switch at 70-80k sheet dps
A few builds shouldnt switch at all.

They are situational too as LS is still effective when SW is up, and in the initial contact with Reflect Damage LOH helps.
I'm still keep 800 LOH when I now have 3-6% LS on weapons.
As for end-game weapon and as far as damage is concerned for DW, EF gives the highest damage.
However, you can only choose 2 out of the 3 stats dex, CD and LS, plus a socket.

so you would get 2k life per second from your lifesteal. so in this case if you got less than 1,67 attacks per second on average, then LS would be better already.
go punch azmo and time your kills to determine your effective dps.

I personally run an Off-Tank setup with a crit chance, high block rate, shield for Higher MP runs and my paper DPS sits around the same as you. I used to use just a lifesteal weapon and kept my overawe active. But I recently switched to Life on Hit instead and currently have 1700 with 1.9 atk speed, and the difference is noticeable. it allowed me to move up 1 MP level, it makes me more versatile against certain rare packs because my regen is far more consistent and not reliant on whether I landed a crit or whether I activated overawe, or if there is enough mobs around to Lifesteal enough off my sweeping wind procs.
Ultimately what I noticed is when I run my glass canon build that sits around 155k dps, a Lifesteal weapon did better for me, but when you sit under 100k paper dps, it seems having high enough atk speed with 1500+ life on hit helps more. All depends where you are at in that regard in my opinion.

For monks, I've found that if your build allows you to stay in place while attacking, LoH work is great, but the more AoE you have and the more you need to move, the better life steal is.
You should post your build as that is going to be the largest factor in determining whether or not LS is ideal for you.

I duel an echoing fury with 937 LoH and a sword with 2.8 Life Steal. It is a great combo and I advocate for yielding a high LoH and a Life Steal if you have mediocre dps < 150k. I have 2.33 AS, 50CC, and 480 CD and 800 AR, along with 500 or so L/S and 6k armor.
I can tank just about anything in MP 10 as long as i keep attacking I dont die (well unless arcane is sent then different story). However, RR, molten and desecrator dont really kill me like i would expect at such a high mp. Things take forever to kill, but it's fun to just survive.
The echo was kind of expensive though. and the life steal was given to me for cheap.
