GAMEDIAS is new to us, and I don't even recall previous writers working on their products, but they are here now with their latest mouse offering from their lineup. As we look at their site to get a feel for what they are all about, we find two important things. First off is the naming, which breaks down to the GAM referencing gaming and the DIAS being Latin for god; by referring to your company as the gaming gods of the industry, this sets the bar pretty high.
The second part I found as a fundamental must for anyone offering peripherals: they should be built for gamers by gamers, and GAMDIAs does exactly that. Right out of the gate, expectations may be elevated, but we will still look at this mouse through objective eyes and try not to let the god-like naming or all of the mythological naming associated with them play with our minds too much.
The only issue we have up front is that we have not had the pleasure or even the displeasure of seeing anything previous to this new mouse, so we have little to go from as to if improvements are being made over time or if the Esport Edition really offers anything over the original release of the mouse carrying the same name.
We do, however, have many mice that have arrived at our lab previous to this as the "standard" to compare this product to. As we have always said, if a product is great and truly worthy of praise, it will rise to the top of the crowd all on its own anyways, with or without any previous history.
Today, GAMDIAS has sent over the ZEUS Esport Edition mouse for us to test. While being based off another very similar design carrying the ZEUS name, this time things are not that much different at first glance. Obviously, the coloration of the outside has changed, but they kept all the lighting effects, customizability, and comfort that were associated with the original.
We even still received a laser-based mouse that has some pretty top-end software to go along with it. That and plenty of onboard memory make the GAMDIAS ZEUS Esport Edition a real contender on paper, but we are soon to find out how it does in the real-world, not just in images and specifications found on the Internet.
