Dream Machines DM1 FPS Gaming Mouse

While the rendering on the outside of the box gave us a good idea of what to expect, the Noir version does pit a spin on it visually. The top cover is white, but the side panels and the bottom are black with this version. The pair of buttons are also black and sit near the top of the concave side panel, and are easily accessible.

The heel of the mouse has a hard line that wraps around the back, above where the black and white plastic meet. There is also the Dream Machines logo on the heel, but unlike in other DM1 mice, this time it is painted on, and no backlit.

The right side of the DM1 FPS is an identical match when to comes to the coloration of areas, as well as the concave shape the left side offers. The only thing missing from this ambidextrous design are the extra buttons or a way to insert them, for left-handed gamers.

The view of the front shows that the main white buttons rest well above the lower portion of the black frame, and we also see that the frame extends between the main buttons as well. As to the cable, it comes out of the middle of this blunt-nosed design.

In the black area between the main buttons is where you initially run into the scroll wheel. The center is made of clear plastic to enhance the backlighting found there, and has a thick, highly textured, rubber outer ring to ensure precise scrolling. Behind the scroll wheel is a shield-shaped button, which by default, is set to change the DPI levels.

The cable is over six foot long, and the entire length of it is covered in a soft, cottony, black, shoelace cover, which is very flexible and lightweight. We also notice that near the connection is an in-line ferrite choke, and under the protecting cover is indeed a gold-plated USB 2.0 connector.

The mouse glides upon three feet. A wider single foot at the front, and a pair of skinnier feet at the back ensure stability as well as effortless movement. There is a product sticker with the name and serial number on it, which is notched to go around the centralized eye of the optical sensor. There is also a quality control sticker which also provides the month and year the product was made.
