Dream Machines DM3 Mini Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse Review

DOOM & PUBG

 

Typically we would play games with a range of DPI usage in the 3000 to 5000 range, depending on the mouse we were using. However, with the DM3 Mini, we find the 1600 DPI setting to be the sweet spot for shooters.

 

Even at this setting, we still found the mouse to deliver a solid mix of accuracy as well as quickness to navigate our 4K screen. Using this setting minimized the amount of lifting in game, but you do have the option for the default 1.8mm of LOD which allows the cursor very little time to wander when lifted.

 

You can opt for a 2.4mm setting by holding the scroll wheel down and using the left mouse button for 1.8mm or the right mouse button for 2.4mm. When it comes to gaming with the DM3 Mini, while small in our hand, it took no time at all to get accustomed to it, and return to making headshots, or swinging around wildly to deliver shots to enemies attacking from all directions.

 

Windows and Productivity

 

 

Using the DM3 Mini for productivity is a "sticky" situation. While gaming tends to have us looking all over the place all of the time, the sensor feels very smooth, as long as it is kept in motion. When it comes to highlighting text in a document or trying to copy and paste a link from a browser, we noticed the cursor was twitchy. It is almost as if the sensor has a delay.

 

Finite movements are hard to accomplish from a resting state, and when it came to editing images, we did long to use another mouse as the jittery reaction of the DM3 Mini left much to be desired when it comes to using it for day to day tasks. Adjusting the DPI lower just caused us to lift the mouse all of the time, and raising it made the cursor jump wildly more than it does with the midrange settings. Sorry to say this, but this is an instance where a gaming mouse is great for gaming, but when it comes to anything else you may do with the PC, you are going to want to swap mice.
