It’s now 2017, and Gamdias has made its presence known in the gaming market. With their love of customization and RGB lighting, you (design your gaming environment) make it the way that best suits you. Their ZEUS P1 RGB mouse represents it well with 16.8 million colors of RGB lighting and 12,000 DPI at your disposal. I’ve spent this month of June with this mouse, customizing and learning every detail of it. So without further delay, let’s take a closer look in this Gamdias ZEUS P1 RGB gaming mouse review.
• The mouse has a much smoother feel, more appealing to casual user
• Much higher DPI — 12,000 compared to 8,200
• RGB color scheme
• Textured rubber grips on the side
• Only five extra buttons
• No ridges for thumb and pinky finger
• No weight system
• Couple of HERA settings are missing
Gamdias Zeus P1 RGB Gaming Mouse Review
When compared to the ZEUS eSport Laser mouse, the P1 RGB has a much simpler design. The latter has five extra customizable buttons instead of the eight on the ZEUS eSport. The streaming lighting on the P1 RGB is hard to creatively put into words. There are 13 small segments that have their own illumination. The Gamdias logo’s color is not customizable, and will always glow red.
Unlike the ZEUS eSport, the P1 RGB has textured rubber grips where your thumb and pinky rest, giving you more grip to the mouse. The mouse fits in my hand comfortably and doesn’t displace any discomfort. Resolution can go up to 12,000 DPI delivering insane accuracy. It comes with HERA software support that configures the lighting, macros, buttons, timer, DPI, and sounds.
The P1 RGB is missing a couple of settings from the eSport mouse such as “Straight Path Correction,” the ability to change X-axis and Y-axis DPI independently, and the “Lift Off Setting.” The P1 RGB isn’t the eSports model, and it isn’t trying to be. The P1 RGB does not have a customizable weight which did not bother me, as the weight for the mouse felt right. This could be an issue for others though. The P1 RGB tracks optically (using LEDs) rather than a laser. In the past, laser mice have been able to hit higher DPI’s. It’s obviously not a problem for the P1 RGB as it’s capable of 12,000 DPI. The eSports mouse can only achieve 8,000 DPI.

I ran the ZEUS P1 RGB mouse at 2000 DPI for most of the testing but did try several different resolution settings. The 12,000 DPI setting was insanely accurate especially if you’re flicking the mouse around to make quick shots like in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO).

As a big fan of the ZEUS eSports laser mouse for its grip, for me, the ZEUS P1 RGB comes in a close second. It can’t beat the thumb and pinky ridges of the eSports mouse. It was an easy transition switching from the eSports mouse after falling for the P1’s lighting scheme.
Both are great mice! The P1 RGB can compete in the eSports sector in terms of DPI/accuracy, but the grip comes short of the mark.
The P1 RGB works great. It fits my hand perfectly, is quite responsive, and its optical LED is highly accurate as it lights up alongside the HERMES 7-Color mechanical keyboard. If you’re just getting into gaming and unsure of what mouse to get, or you’ve finally decided to ditch your old standard mouse, this ZEUS P1 RGB is a solid winner.
The list price of the ZEUS P1 RGB mouse is $79.99. Fortunately, you can get it on Amazon for $49.99. In the US, each gaming mouse comes with a 1-year warranty from date of purchase.
