GAMDIAS Ares Essential Gaming Combo Keyboard & Mouse Review

Hera Software for the Ourea




With the same software running, you can swap over to the Ourea image at the bottom to get these options. At the top is a basic mode that only offers four of the tabs, but selecting advance gives you all nine tabs to play with. Key assignment is pretty straightforward. Select a key on the mouse image, and with the lines at the bottom, once clicked, they open drop-down menus to choose what sort of functionality you wish to set. This can be done for each key across six profiles.





The Macro management is the same as we found with the Ares. The only change made here is instead of adding mouse button support; the table has been turned to now allow keyboard commands to be used on the mouse.




Mouse control offers the ability to change the cursor speed, the vertical scroll speed, and the double click speed on the left. To the right you can set the DPI level, and change the polling rate.




Mouse luminescence is where you can go to address the LED lighting. At the top, you can adjust the brightness or put it into pulse mode, but at the bottom, the color options, and RGB scale are only for the scroll wheel light. The Zeus logo is always yellow.




Sounds and timers are the same as we saw with the Ares too. Select a button, set a sound to it, and at the bottom, you can add a timer if you wish.




Sound file edit offers the same thing as the Ares as well. You are allowed to use up to five-second clips or self-recorded messages to use in the previous tabs controls.




The timer window is the same too. Again, you can set this up for anything you want. Pizza cooking, dog walking, appointment reminders, anything is fair game to set a timer for.




Muscle memory is a way to keep track of the mouse activity. While this is more for sport than anything else, you can also use it to compare with others using Gamdias mice to see where you stand against the rest of the world in mouse usage.




This update and support window shows the software and firmware version currently used with the Ourea. Here you can again use this window to check for updates to either the firmware or the software separately, and also offers the same ability to go to the Gamdias support page with just one click.
