OCZ Eclipse Gaming Mouse Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award


OCZ presents the follow up to the previously tested Behemoth, a mouse geared towards big-handed users, with a smaller-sized companion, the Eclipse. Don’t let the size fool you, however; the peripheral has everything a gaming-grade mouse requires: adjustable weight, function buttons, individual profiles, and high precision. With up to 2,400 dpi of resolution, it’s behind the Behemoth itself (3,200 dpi) and the also tested Mamba from Razer (5,600 dpi), but that didn’t detract from the experience, as we will see later on in this test.

Made for right-handed users, the wedge-shaped Eclipse has grooves for the pinkie and thumb, two traditional lateral buttons and a scroll wheel that lights up to indicate the current user profile. Below the scroll wheel there’s the dpi switching button and four blue LEDs to show the current dpi setting. The rubberized body is very comfortable and can be used of hours without being tiring. Different from the competition, the Eclipse weight system isn’t located below the mouse, which houses the laser cannon and the profile button, but instead on the upper body itself. You just have to pop the lid, pull the little latch and release the set of four weights, totally 18 grams (0.64 oz). They make the total weight go up to 137 grams (4.8 oz).
