Side grips and navigation switches
If not for the thumb grip, the design of the mouse feels ambidextrous. The mouse is lightweight, though it feels most of its weight is towards the right side. For me, it’s a bit difficult to get used to it or not to notice this weight offset. The mouse’s grip is comfortable for claw and palm grip. Both side grips have dotted texture rubber grip shaped to easily rest your thumb and pinky. This is a necessity for a mouse when lifting it from the surface frequently.
Palm Rest and Main keys
The other part you’ll notice is the LED strips running from one side to the other- one above the side navigation buttons and one towards the base. As you’d expect with a name as “Zeus P1 RGB”, you’ll have plenty of RGB effects to play around with.
Scroll Wheel, DPI switches and Base
The side and the DPI feel nicer to click on and doesn’t feel like a cheap plastic actuation. The left and the right click switch feels a bit stiff for three weeks. Scrolling at X-Axis and Y-Axis does not have any friction on a typical cloth-base mousepad.
The left side has navigation switches, while the top has the scroll wheel with click and DPI switches. There’s a gap between the DPI and scroll wheel with a rubber grip. The finish of the DPI switches is as you’d expect from a gloss plastic. What I like is the none of its ‘click’ feel cheap at all. The quality of the dpi switch and scroll wheel scroll wheel click is soft and the same as the side navigation switches. The left and right click feel very stiff until a good three weeks of use.
The Gamdias Zeus P1 RGB uses a 12,000 DPI optical sensor. There are three mouse feet.
The Zeus P1 RGB has few RGB effects- parallel wave, breathing, neon, circular wave and responsive fade-in. You can also set its brightness and speed setting. You can also set the logo brightness setting and lowest setting switches it off. Additionally, you can set custom patterns or select a single colour option.
Gamdias has a software called Hera and it has multiple settings. Some are appreciated while others are good for some users.
The utility’s macro engine is very detailed where it allows you to set every macro setting, delays, mouse coordinates and other usual macro settings such as create, rename, duplicate, delete and locate the macro setting file in Windows explorer.
Mouse control allows the user to set its acceleration.
Mouse Luminance is self-explanatory. As said previously, the Hera utility allows full customization for its LED effects as well. The transition of colour effects is visible till the maximum speed setting of three. Anything above that makes it look seamless.
This might not be a feature useful for an FPS gamer, but I see that assigning a sound or on-screen timer would be useful for MOBA/MMORPG/RTS gamers.
The support tab provides all the information and allows you to install and update the mouse’s firmware.
The Gamdias P1 RGB tracking is very smooth between 1600 DPI to 6200 DPI.
8200 DPI and 12000 DPI isn’t as bad, either.
