The Zeus continues with the outlandish design we saw on the Hephaestus headphones and brings it to the palm of your hands instead but where does the Zeus fit in compared to its competitors and is it worth your money?
Starting with the mouse itself I was pleasantly surprised by the Zeus. Once updated and off playing, the Zeus is plain sailing across different games and didn’t come up short in anyway. The configurable physical element should be a boon for many, even though I preferred the smallest size configuration. If there’s anything to be said about the configurable aspect it’s that the wheels felt a bit cheap. By this I mean they’re a bit of a pain to scroll and if you were to use a tool to help rotate them I’m not sure how the grooves would hold up to frequent tweaking.
The Hera software needs polishing up here and there to be considered a proper contender to the G suite form Logitech or SteelSeries’ Engine, but the addition of the Muscle Map, sound editing and macro ability to record mouse movements are all solid inclusions in a confused presentation.The Hera software doesn’t appear to have an install option, either, which again is odd as Gamdias has an installation package for the Hephaestus. Having to locate and fire-up the executable every time you start the OS isn’t ideal for those of us who like our desktops clean.
Lastly, the £70 asking price certainly isn’t without warrant from Gamdias. The package isn’t miles worse value or necessarily better than the competition but it isn’t an offensive price for what is overall, an extremely competent mouse. An inclusion of a fully sized mouse bag would have been better than what’s essentially a pouch for the weights, but otherwise it’s hard to argue against the Zeus being good value for money.
Gamdias have brought a competent mouse to the market with the Zeus and its performance should have everybody covered. The software side of the package needs some slight TLC to be truly great.
