Gamdias Hades Extension Optical Mouse (GMS7001) Review

The Hades what I call a proper gaming mouse from Gamdias, much to its size that fits the bill as a gamer mouse.

As you can see from the photo above, the mouse is symmetrical (Ambidextrous) in design so it works for both left and right handed people.

You might be asking – what’s the “Extension” about? Notice that 4 black pieces that are around the mouse in the photo above? Those are the extensions.

The extensions clip on to the sides of the mouse via magnets.

Then there’s the medium configuration, this is the configuration that’s default on the mouse.

Lastly there’s the wide configuration of which it spans its “wings” a little further.

Another thing one might like about this mouse is the LED colors on the scroll wheel that’s changeable with a click.

User Experience

The mouse feels great to use, although the rather small mouse feet for the side support does make it scrape the mouse pad a little here and there.

If you’re not picky on such issues then it’ll go unnoticed but for one such as myself who’s picky on movements, this doesn’t cut it. Using the smaller wings would make it a lot better.

It’s good that the wider wings give comfort to those with wide palms to rest their fingers but it comes at a cost.

The Verdict

The Hades comes at RM 149, still a very cost-effective gaming mouse despite the slight flaw during movements, including the horrible USB plug header design. What you get is are 5 user defined dpi settings, Up to 7 programmable keys, 6 sets of LED ambient lighting effects and a 3200dpi optical sensor – that’s good, right?

The strength of the Gamdias product range lies with the HERA software that allows customization.
