Demeter E2 Optical Gaming Mouse


The left side of the Demeter E2 is textured, offers a thumb rest, has two buttons near the top, and has two thick wedges cut from it to allow for LED illumination. We can also see that the side of the left main button is matte, while the side is somewhat shiny and textured, and the heel is made of shiny plastic.


At the back of the mouse, the Demeter E2 comes to a softly rounded point and is ambidextrous in shape. Along with the Zeus logo on the shiny plastic, we can see stripes on either side which are also LED illuminated.


The right side of the Demeter E2 is identical to what we saw on the left, lacking only one thing. While the shape is ambidextrous, and left-hand users could use this mouse, sadly there are not buttons found here to complete the idea that this kit was made to include everyone.


Even while looking at the mouse from the front, we can see that the concave curves are even at the top of the mouse, and both buttons end at the same length and with the same angle. We also see that the cable comes out of the middle of the frames lower section.


On the top of the Demeter E2, we see that a soft-touch rubberized coating has been applied to the bulk of the top surface. The center section of the top has many close lines around the DPI selector button and the backlit scroll wheel, but it is just for added aesthetics.


There is less mouse cable than there is keyboard cable, but they both have a sleeved exterior and both end in a stylized connector. They are also both USB 2.0 without gold plating, and we again find a Ferrite choke on the cable.


The eye of the sensor is shifted slightly left of center but is evenly spaced front to back. The product sticker assumes much of the bottom space, and we see that it also passed quality control. To keep the mouse flowing freely on the desk, Gamdias uses Teflon feet, one at each corner, so that it is smooth and stable.


We also wanted to include the NYX E1 mouse pad in the mix, so we placed the mouse on it for some perspective. We can see that the mouse pad is small, but hey it was free, right. As for the Demeter E2, once plugged in, the LEDs will pulse red, purple, blue and pink in a breathing mode, and each color has a DPI setting associated with it so that when selected, you know what the DPI is.
