OCZ Dominatrix Gaming Mouse Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Configuration and Playing with the Dominatrix

Fortunately configuring the Dominatrix is a simple operation so we went right to the fun part of testing it: actually playing endless hours of FPS games. We just installed the command editor software that came in a CD and begun assigning functions to the side buttons. You can also record macros – programming a sequence of keys to respond to a single button stroke. As we’ve said, the user can save up to three different profiles, identifiable by three colors that light the M button. As usual, we programmed the buttons to serve our gaming style: one for ducking under fire, the other for opening a communication channel between teammates (instead of hitting the “V” key and taking our fingers away from the WASD cluster).

At the default resolution of 1,600 dpi, the Dominatrix proved itself to be one of the most precise and comfortable mice we’ve tested so far. It responded quickly to our on-the-fly aim adjustments: we left a trail of dead virtual bodies in our wake. The rubber grip felt secure and sweat-free after hours of intense gaming. The big body wasn’t an issue because the Dominatrix felt light and agile despite its size – and we could always adjust the center of gravity. However if you’d like a smaller and more portable mouse, and table space is an issue with you, you may not like the Dominatrix. The device follows the black/blue/light themes en vogue on the market and it’s a nice fit for the OCZ Elixir gaming keyboard (tested here) or the Tarantula keyboard from Razer.

Costing a lot less than the Logitech G9 (which also reaches 3,200 dpi, has onboard memory and weigh adjustment), the Dominatrix is a killer alternative getting the best for your money’s worth. It follows the current design trend and excelled at its primary function: being a perfect gaming-grade mouse.
