GAMDIAS is quickly becoming a choice brand for gaming hardware. Reviewing in conjunction with the Hermes P1 RGB Mechanical Keyboard, the Zeus P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse is a great companion. Continuing with the Greek gods, Zeus is the “Father of Gods and men”, the god of lighting and thunder. The Zeus P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse is fast and lightweight, making that impact of lightning and thunder. GAMDIAS continues to impress.

Unwrapping the Zeus P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse is swathed in black and gold colors. When first gripping the mouse, I immediately noticed how long it was. The second thing I noticed was the rubber grips on the side. It’s ergonomic, with some slight curvature that benefits right-handers, but maintains and otherwise straight profile from the top-down when looking at it. Couple that sleek look to when it is powered on, and there are dual RGB lines that make this light up in incredible ways.

This is a wired mouse, with a braided USB 2.0 cable. The mouse itself uses an optical sensor. The mouse sensitivity goes from 1600DPI to a whopping 12000DPI, and does so on-the-fly. There’s eight buttons on this mouse. The Zeus P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse uses Huano switches. This can be a make it or break it for those looking to purchase as Omron switches are preferred on mice for repetitive clicks. I will say that in my use, I did not find this to be an issue.

The Zeus P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse has a 1000Hz polling rate. It is rated for 20 million clicks, but that’s not something I’m able to reasonably test here. soft and hard surfaces, no calibration tool. But perhaps there isn’t one because it isn’t needed. I had no issues with PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, Escape from Tarkov, or LawBreakers in doing what I wanted, whether it be landing headshots or just needing to look quickly across the soft surface I’m using.

HERA software is a bit unimpressive overall, and the mouse’s capabilities are all there. But HERA is good for more finite changes, like modifying scroll speeds, double-click, polling rate, etc. What I find odd, is that the RGB doesn’t sync with a keyboard like the Hermes P1 RGB Mechanical Keyboard, nor is there an option for that. Not the end of the world, but just a slight disappointment to have these devices look the same when in-use.

GAMDIAS’ inexpensive offerings are worth a look and your time. This mouse didn’t disappoint as it does everything I want it to. The lightweight mouse was a bit surprising, but perhaps more so with its length that is more than any other mouse I’ve used. But in time, it was very comfortable to hold and didn’t hurt my hand to use in long play sessions. Zeus P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse is a straightforward gaming mouse that is a great alternative other hardware manufacturers.
