Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing




We have not seen much from Gamdias as far as mice go, but the original Zeus eSports edition mouse was quite the show stopper. Not only did it come in high-end packaging that gave the buyer a feel of elegance and that they had purchased something high-end, but more importantly, the mouse itself was on point as well. It featured an aggressive design, a full feature set, plenty of buttons, a superior feel in hand. While we did run across a few small issues personally with it, we still feel that it was a solid product in our introduction to what Gamdias was capable of in mouse development.



Almost three years have passed since that review, and we have seen things improve in that time. While this latest entry to be tested sports a similar name to the original design, but that's about it when it comes to comparing these two mice side by side. This time around, there are fewer buttons at your beck and call, the shape has changed, and even the components inside of the mice are completely different. Most notably, where the Zeus eSports mouse is a laser sensor based product, this latest entry uses an optical sensor to do the tracking.


The newest mouse from Gamdias to hit the labs is the Zeus P1 RGB optical gaming mouse, and we feel it is something that many more users will find to their liking. Things have drastically changed from our introduction to Gamdias mice, for the better, and Gamdias has renewed our faith in them to make a great product. Simplicity is key in this design, yet at the same time, we do find a lot of the features that most users, especially gamers, will appreciate. Without giving it all away before we get deeper into the review, we kindly suggest that you take the time to read on, as Gamdias has turned over a new leaf and delivered a mouse which not only looks good but is on point when it comes to usage and performance as well.




In the specifications chart, we see that it is somewhat limited in the information provided. First is a notation to the advanced gaming optical sensor in charge of tracking, and we then move right into the measurements. Here we find that the Zeus P1 RGB is 127.26mm in length, 72.45mm in width, 40.85mm tall at its highest point, and all told without the cable, only 125 grams in weight. Gamdias includes eight keys in this design, counting the pair of main buttons, the pair of side buttons, the scroll wheel click, and a trio of smaller buttons found behind the scroll wheel. The resolution of the sensor comes next where we find the lowest of the range is 1600 DPI, with a maximum of 12,000 DPI, and is offered with six steps in total within this range. The polling rate is set to 1000Hz, there are 20 million clicks to the lifespan of the main switches, there is a 1.8-meter cable attached to the Zeus P1 RGB, and lastly, we see that it is customizable via the Gamdias HERA software.


Things that Gamdias does not mention are things like the use of Huano switches to back the main and side buttons in this design, blue cased white switch Huanos under the mains, and black cases red switch Huanos under all of the secondary buttons. While they do address that the sensor is an optical version, there is no mention of the use of the PMW3336 which is housed inside. There is also no mention of the fact that this Zeus P1 RGB comes equipped with a pair of Holtek 8-bit MCUs either.


At this time, availability is quite high, and the Zeus P1 RGB is listed at most of the major locations anyone would tend to lean to for their peripheral purchases. What is even better at this time, is that the pricing of this mouse will not scare you away either. While Fry's electronics does seem to be still charging the MSRP for this mouse with a listed pricing of $69.99, we see that Amazon and Newegg are both quite a bit more affordable with their listings. At both locations, one can acquire this Zeus P1 RGB for just $49.99, with free shipping offered to Prime and Premier members. From what we have seen thus far, and accounting the pricing into the overall bang for the buck, Gamdias and their Zeus P1 RGB delivers all around.
