I tested the Gamdias Demeter DPI and polling rates from 125hz to 1000hz. The Demeter performed to specifications. Using the mouse rate checker program, it was spot on for each and every poll rate. The DPI changes were noticeable by feel alone.
During my testing with the Gamdias Demeter, I noticed how much more fluid the mouse moves when compared to my old wireless mouse. With the higher DPI settings I no longer had to drag and drop the mouse to move the mouse around the screen as efficiently. When I required a more precise touch, I could instantly lower the DPI to accomplish this task. I must say that this mouse feels comfortable even after hours of use during gaming or just general computer usage.
I have not found a particular use yet for the macro system or timers, but they do work well. I noticed a lack of keys to assign when using the macros or timers during testing. Once you assign a macro to a key, you can keep the default function or disable it. I found that during gaming the best key to use would be the middle mouse button or the left side key, since they generally do not have in-game functions. With some time and patience, I’m sure chaining macros through multiple profiles bound with hot keys can make up for the lack of keys to assign macro functions.
All-in-all, I have to say the Demeter has performed solidly without a single glitch or problem during my testing.
