GAMDIAS ZEUS P1 RGB Optical Gaming Mouse Review

The key assignment tab in the HERA software is what you would expect it to be, where you go to remap the mouse. In profile one, to the right, you cannot change any of the functionality, but by selecting any of the other four profiles, you can change anything but the left click, that function is always left click.


There are 18 groupings of defaults to be used in command changes, everything from disabling them to keyboard keys, Macros, media controls, and Skype functionality; it's all there ready to be used.





Macro management is some of the most robust we have seen from any mouse manufacturer. The left side of the window is all about the creation of folders to contain the Macros, naming them, renaming them, duplicating, deleting, and even linking to programs, and once one is made it will appear in the window. On the right is where the commands will appear in the larger window, and once done, you have a multitude of options to control and edit what you just recorded.




In the tab marked mouse control, this is where you can adjust the basic functions of the mouse. The cursor speed, vertical scroll speed, and the double click speed can all be adjusted on the left side. On the right, you can pick a preset DPI level, or by clicking and dragging you can change it in 200 DPI increments to a custom level. This is also where you can adjust the polling rate.




Moving on to LED color selection in the mouse luminance tab we get two options, singular color or lighting effects for the LED zones. In the single color tab, you can use the RGB sliders or direct enter the color code, and you can also choose to use one of the 34 preset options below.


There is also the option to adjust brightness, which carries over to both tabs of color selection. Under lighting effects, HERA offers the ability to choose circular wave, breathing, neon, responsive fade in, and a parallel wave mode, but in this tab, you can also adjust the speed of the mode displayed as well.




With the Zeus P1 RGB, you can also assign sound and timers to each key press. This means you can pick from pre-selected wave files which play short melodies with each click. This is also where you will address any sounds programmed from the following tab as well. Below that, you can address timers, but once again you need to go two tabs down the list and set them up first, then apply them to a button in this tab.




In the sound file edit tab, this is where you can address what sounds you would like the buttons to make. There is a sound recorder so that you can use a mic to record anything you say or something you found on the internet, name it, rename it, and save it into the list to be used in the previous tab.




The same thing goes for timers as well. In the timer setting tab, you can create the timer by name, set how long it is to run with days, hours, minutes, and seconds, create reminders, and even choose where the message will display on the screen once the timer has run out.




The last of the tabs is for updating and support of the Zeus P1 RGB. Along with a huge logo at the top, the lower section displays the model of the device you are using, shows which firmware version is currently on it, and has a one-click check for update option. Below that there are similar offers for HERA, where we see the current version in use and a place to check if it is up to date. If you do happen to run into an issue with the device, at the bottom, click on online support, and it delivers you to the Gamdias home page.
