Details

The GAMDIAS Zeus M3 is a $25 USD budget gaming mouse which comes with 7 different buttons, a 125 Hz polling rate and up to 7200 DPI (dots per inch), with 5 different intervals below that. The mouse also packs in 13 different RGB lighting effects. The mouse connects to your PC via USB-A and it has a cord length of 6’.  Included in the box with the mouse is GAMDIAS’ NYM E1 mouse pad. This mouse pad is not made of the best quality, it is thin, but it comes with the mouse for free, so getting a mouse pad at all is always a bonus! 

Design

I like the design of this mouse. It fits both big and small hands well and it is comfortable to use for long periods of time. The mouse, coming in at 120g is on the heavy side of most mice. It is ambidextrous to some degree, it does have two side buttons on left side of the mouse, which means that if you use a mouse with your left hand, you wouldn’t really be able to use them. The feel of the mouse is more directed towards a right-handed user, but if you really wanted to, you could use this mouse with your left hand. 

There are seven different buttons on this mouse. Other than the three-standard left, right, and scroll wheel buttons, there are two side buttons and two buttons above the scroll wheel which control the DPI intervals and the RGB mode. There is lots of RGB on this mouse, but it is not too overpowering. There are also some grippy tape on both sides of the mouse, which allows you to grip your mouse better. 

 I also am impressed with the cord on this mouse, it has a 6’ cord which unlike other GAMDIAS’ products I have review is braded which is nice especially since this is a budget mouse.  

Performance

This mouse comes equipped with GAMDIAS’ Advanced Gaming Optical Sensor, it can read up to 7200 DPI, which is not great compared to other mice, some of which can get up to 20,000 DPI, but this is a budget mouse, and the DPI is about average for its price. The different intervals of DPI that you can switch between are 1200 / 1600 / 2400 / 3200 / 4800 / 7200. The polling rate of this mouse, (or the number of times a mouse updates its position per second) is 125Hz, which is low for a gaming mouse, but like I’ve said, this is a budget mouse.  

Most of the buttons of this mouse are decent, they are not sticky or mushy and they give a nice click. Except for the side buttons which I do find are a little soft, and they have a very slight activation delay. The mouse also starts to slightly heat up, or start getting warmer around the palm of your hand the longer you use it, which causes your hand to start sweating, especially if you’re gaming. We see different types of mice starting to have coolers or fans inside, to prevent sweating, and because this mouse warms up slightly, it doesn’t help the situation of a sweaty hand.  

Conclusion

Overall, this is a solid mouse, especially if you’re on a budget! It comes with GAMDIAS’ Advanced Gaming Optical Sensor which allows it to read up to 7200 DPI at a polling rate of 125Hz. There 7 different buttons on this mouse, and there is also some pretty nice RGB. The only slight complaint that I have is that the mouse tends to warm up and get hot around your palm, which causes sweating.
