Testing the DM1 Pro:
When it comes down to testing of any mouse, we always like doing this by using real world situations. Today we will be using the DM1 Pro Gaming Mouse in several different methods: Surfing the Web, Checking Emails, and Photo Editing, plus writing this Review. But like most of you who already know, the DM1 Pro Mouse was designed to do something else really well, and that’s gaming, so we will be doing some very extensive gaming for about a week to give you our very best opinion on how the DM1 Pro performs in that arena.
Comfort and Ergonomics:
The DM1 Pro Gaming mouse is very comfortable to use, especially if you’re a user with fingertip or claw grip, who requires the comfort and ability to rest your palm at the back, while still being able to make contact with all the buttons available. The small curved indentations on the left and right sides of the DM1 Pro make it comfortable for your fingers plus better maneuverability during use.
Some users who are used to gimmicks like weighted or a heavier mouse may find this a bit on the light side at just 89 grams, but after several days of usage we became acclimated to the DM1 Pro’s lighter weight. The movements across our gaming pad were very accurate, fast, and fluid. If we had to nitpick about anything at all, and this is really petty, and really nothing to do with performance, it would be the breathing LED lighting. I wish there was a way to stop it and have it run solid. All button clicks come easy with a definite click response that you will feel or even hear when pressed.
Overall, Dream Machines DM1 Pro like others we have tested we believe are designed toward right handed individuals who prefer the fingertip or claw grip, others I know will equally enjoy the comfort it brings while using this mouse as well. During long gaming sessions, we did not experience any real discomfort, only normal fatigue was present, and that was primarily after several hours of gaming.
