OCZ Dominatrix Laser Gaming Mouse


As I stated earlier, it's difficult to evaluate a mouse simply because they are very personal devices and what works for some might be the very thing that others hate. The OCZ Dominatrix handled itself well throughout our tests. The shape isn't really something I prefer, yet I can safely say it was comfortable to use, whether it be for elongated browsing sessions, working in documents or even just blowing off heads. The bind-able buttons could, when put to use, be beneficial. But I can see the potential being overlooked by users that simply plug and play the mouse. Possibly the best feature was the ability to customise the on-the-fly DPI levels using the software. This can allow you to configure, for example, a rife and scoped sensitivity that can be cycled through at the click of a button. That is exactly what a user wants.
A quick product search across the interweb shows very few stockists of the Dominatrix at present. The first being listed at play.com at £17.99 but is presented as 'out of stock', and the second located over at Eclipse Computers for £21.09 listed as 'Normally in stock'. If these prices are a good indication of what the OCZ Dominatrix will retail for when it becomes more readily available, then this mouse is a bargain.
The Good
+ Comfy
+ Responsive

The Mediocre

Nice review Ham, how does it feel compared to the equalizer?Quote

It's got a lot more features than the equalizer. I prefer the more standard shape myself, but this should be on the short list for people looking for a cheap, sound mouse.Quote

Always a bad move for a gaming mouse manufacturer not to release 64 bit software with the product

Looks pretty nice for the price thoughQuote

I don't like looks of it, but it does seem pretty good value. Still not going to get me to ditch the G9. I like the little weights thing, that seems quite a good system, but I prefer a small mouse, in black preferably.

Nice review as always though.Quote
