Gaming Mouse Final Thoughts
The Zeus P1 looks amazing and performs well with its 12000 DPI optical sensor. Usually, a beautiful mouse would need to compromise a few things just so it can look good. With the Zeus P1, it looks great with its double level RGB customizable streaming lighting design and its simple body shape. It is fairly light at around 125g and is suitable for users with medium to large hands. The Hera software may seem a bit limited for some users, but there are a lot of users who would much rather prefer to tune a few settings and get on with gaming. Users looking for an upgrade from an older mouse should really consider the Zeus P1.
Zeus P1 RGB Conclusion
Performance wise, the Zeus P1 does great with its 12000 DPI optical sensor. I noticed no acceleration while gaming and the buttons responded with no noticeable problems. Gamdias did not specify the sensor, but it performs and looks physically identical to the 3360/3366 optical sensor. If I had to guess, I would say this is the 3360 optical sensor. But then again, I cannot confirm this unless I crack the mouse open or something. If you do crack your Zeus P1 open by accident, you are backed up with a one year and two month warranty here in the US.
The double level RGB customizable streaming lighting design makes the Zeus P1 stand out from the crowd. Even the body shape looks nothing like its predecessor. The LED’s look really good in low light conditions, but it would be nice to have the option to customize the rear logo as well. Customization may not be as flexible as the Chroma customizable lighting on the Razer Mamba TE, but the customizable streaming lighting design is a good start for something new.
When it comes to construction, the Zeus P1 is built mainly from a durable plastic material with rubberized side grips. No sensor rattle was present, but the scroll wheel did rattle just a bit while shaking the mouse around. The OMRON switches are rated at 20 million clicks, so this mouse should last you until your next upgrade.
The mouse functions well as a gaming mouse or a desktop ornament. It looks great, feels well built, and performs well without any noticeable delay or acceleration. The Hera software works well and can manage multiple Gamdias gaming peripherals in one application. When terminating the software, it would crash almost every time. But at least it has not crashed in the middle of using the software.
As of January 2017, the Gamdias Zeus P1 RGB gaming mouse currently sells online for $49.99 (Amazon | Newegg). This is a very aggressive price when compared to the Mamba TE and some of the offerings from Logitech. If you are looking for an affordable mouse with some cool looking light streams but still want to increase your kill-death ratio, the Zeus P1 may be the mouse for you.
