Dream Machines DM1 Pro Gaming Mouse




The shape of the DM1 Pro is identical to the S model, where we find a nearly flat slope at the front, a high center, and a gentle curve towards the back, along the top edge. The left side of the mouse offers an additional pair of buttons, placed well for easy use, and are found along the body line. The lower section is concave, and aids in allowing your thumb to grab the mouse for lifting.





The heel of the mouse expands from side to side, with one smooth surface, and higher up on the mouse we see the DM logo. Also, all surfaces of this mouse give it a matte finish due to the rubberized coating used on all of the top sections.




The right side of the DM1 Pro is a mirror image of the left side, except that with this being a right-hand mouse, there are no buttons to be found. The lower section is concave still and fits the pinky finger well so one can easily lift from both sides of the DM1 Pro.




Along the front edge, we see the main buttons follow the curve shape of the mouse, and are rounded at their edges. These are separated by a center section, and on the front edge, we see the USB cable emanating from the center as well.




On top of the DM1 Pro, we find the rubberized, clear scroll wheel. Behind it, we see a shield-shaped button, and this one is used to cycle through the five DPI settings, and will change the LED backlighting with each step.




Under the DM1 Pro, we find three feet supporting the mouse so that it will glide effortlessly on any surface. One wider foot is found at the front, just above the product sticker and centralized eye of the sensor. The back of the mouse is fitted with a pair of feet, one to either side, and there is also a quality control sticker present to say this DM1 Pro has been tested and passed.




The cabling coming out of the mouse is rubberized, but it then has a red and black braided sleeve ran over it for a bit of added style. This 1.8-meter cable has a Ferrite choke inline and terminates with a standard USB 2.0 connection, which has been gold-plated as well.
