Unfortunately the included driver disc with our sample was snapped in two and therefore rendered useless. Thankfully like most manufacturers these days OCZ provide the latest drivers on their website which were easily located on the drivers page of the Support section. The driver itself has a very small footprint, perhaps down to the fact that the software doesn't install on your system but acts as a standalone driver. In essence all it does is change the settings written to the flash memory of the mouse. This is great news for anyone wanting to take the mouse to LAN parties, over to a friends house or even to work/school should you have the urge, as you don't have to worry about installing drivers every time to get the best out of your mouse.
I purposely launched the driver without the mouse attached to the system to see how the driver would react in this situation and was met with a rather intriguing question; "No Mouse?" I couldn't help but grin, this was possibly the funniest thing I had seen all day (sad, I know.) As funny as it may sound it's actually a fairly good idea. However, a slight rephrasing to something like "No Mouse Detected" would be a more direct approach and deliver the message in a more definitive manner. I can only wonder what other quirks lie hidden in the depths of the Behemoth driver.
With the mouse plugged in to my system this time, I proceeded to launch the Behemoth drivers for a second time. This time round was more successful with a loading message appearing for a few seconds, during which the LEDs on the mouse flashed, indicating the settings being read from the onboard memory.
On the Profile page three customisable profiles are available for use. A number of directional buttons enable settings to be transferred from mouse to PC and vice versa. A small description of what each button does appears when hovered over which is useful if you are new to working with profiles on a mouse. In general the software is rather basic, but it gets the job done which is no cause for complaint.
Moving on to the Configuration tab, the settings are pretty self explanatory. You have the DPI adjustments which you can set ranging from 200-3200DPI and the USB report rate can be turned off completely or set at 125, 250, 500 or 1000 reports per second.
When any changes are being saved to the mouse, a loading screen appears and the mouse becomes non responsive for the duration. Perhaps a notification to let the user know the mouse will stop responding would be helpful to reassure them during the process.
