Incredibly expensive but superbly built and very customisable, the Gamdias Zeus is a terrific gaming mouse

Specifications

Mouse type: Laser, Resolution: 8,200dpi, Buttons: 11, Connection: USB, Warranty: 27 months

Some might look at the Gamdias Zeus mouse and say it's absurdly over-engineered. It has three adjustable grips, nine buttons and an enormous maximum resolution of 8,200 dpi. Admittedly, this is a mouse for the hardest of hardcore gamers, but there's a lot to like about it from the standpoint of a more casual player or even if you're just using normal Desktop applications.

First of all, the mouse's matt, sculpted styling is incredibly distinctive: it looks like a prop pulled straight from a sci-fi B-movie, but in a very good way. The mouse is beautifully smooth and comfortable to hold, and glides along a mousemat or wooden desk with ease.

There are lights aplenty, too, many of which can be customised using Gamdias' complex HERA software. Aside from the expected left and right mouse buttons, there's a button just to the left of the left mouse button for quick access to whatever gaming macro you consider most important. In the middle of the mouse are three buttons: two are set to adjust the mouse's dpi setting, with a light indicating whether you've selected 400, 800, 1,600, 3,200 or 8,200dpi.

Under the mouse are three wheels which allow you to adjust how far the finger grips stick out. The level of adjustment is miniscule, although for a professional gamer this could make all the difference. To most, us included, it's a little ridiculous.

Overall, the Gamdias Zeus is a superb gaming mouse. It's seriously expensive, but its appeal to hardcore gamers is undeniable, and we highly recommend it.
