Configuring the Eclipse
Hardware Secrets Golden AwardJust like the Behemoth, the executable software runs from a mini CD and doesn’t require installation. The configurations are stored on the mouse’s internal memory, so you switch computers and keep the choices you made. The user can tell which profile is on at a certain time by checking the light on the scroll wheel (unlit, red, green or yellow lights).

The configuration software is the same as the Behemoth’s, which we found very confusing and unfriendly when we tested that particular model. It has some cool features like the “Keepshot,” an auto-fire setting that you can use to shoot in fast, medium or slow bursts, but the interface is a hard nut to crack. The user can configure up to six different functions and store three different profiles. If you want to create more profiles, you can save them in your computer and transfer/switch up to three to the Eclipse. We plunged through the unwieldy interface and configured the mouse to our liking, assigning simple commands like copy+paste for word processing usage and record macros to help playing complex games like RPGs and strategy titles. We created a work-related profile (you can’t earn a living just playing videogames) and two dedicated to our most played games, TeamFortress2 and World of Warcraft. You can set four sensitivity stages raging from 200 to 2,400 dpi as you please. For the test, we tried a combination of 600, 1,200, 1,800 and 2,400 dpi; as usual, the lower value worked best at the moments requiring great precision, and the upper values were used in high-octane action.
