Hades Gaming H1 Optical Gaming Mouse & Mat

Test Setup

Test Setup

hades gaming mouse in use

To give you an idea of what the mouse is like I have set up the Hades Gaming H1 Optical gaming mouse on my main PC and used it for about two weeks.


Intel Xeon 3070 @ 3.6GHz
Abit IP35 Pro
2gb Cellshock DDR800 @ DDR1100 5-5-5-15
MSI 8800 GTX
2 x Hitachi Deskstar 7K160
Tagan 1100w PSU
Custom Lian Li PC71b
Custom Watercooling
Dell 2405 FPW Monitor
Saitek Eclipse II Keyboard

I used a variety of mousemats to test:

Hades gaming Mouse Pad
Icemat V1
Free hard mousemat
Office-style cloth mousemat

For a comparison I am using the Logitech G5 mouse, the Microsoft Intellimouse Optical and the Evoluent Vertical Mouse 3 (Rev 2)
The Hades Gaming Mouse is first and foremost a gaming mouse so I have used it for gaming

* Adobe Photoshop detailed photo-editing

* Macromedia Fireworks banner making

* Microsoft Office work (general including Outlook, Excel, Access, Word and Powerpoint)

* General web browsing/article writing

* Gaming: FPS - Unreal Tournament 3 beta, Crysis, Bioshock & F.E.A.R.

* Gaming: RTS - Command and Conquer 3

This should cover a good range of situations that you would use the mouse in.

Nice review kemp, personally im not too sure on the looks, looks abit plasticy to me tbh.... Seems a solid performer mind, the mouse matt also looks pretty good.Quote

I don't think it's any more plasticky than my Logitech G5, apart from perhaps the two issues I brought upQuote

Great review as usual Kemp. The Hades performed really well, especially against a very seasoned vet like the G5. I also love the fact that the mouse is so configurable.Quote
