First Looks


The OCZ Dominatrix gaming mouse arrives in a standard blister pack, along with a thorough user's manual, a drivers CD, and a container full of weights, which we will see later on this page. At the end of the six foot cord, there is a gold-plated USB connector.


OCZ chose an ergonomic, right-hand-based design for the overall shape of the Dominatrix. On the sides, where the thumb, fourth, and pinky fingers rest, there is a soft dimpled rubber pad. The rubber has a nice grip to it without feeling sticky. On top of the mouse is a smoother, harder rubber surface, similar to the feel of a Razer mouse, which is softer than plastic and won't get slippery or slimy if you have sweaty hands. The other parts of the mouse are plastic.

On top of the mouse, we find the tilt-scroll wheel, the DPI cycling button (closer to wheel), and a profile switching button (farther from wheel). The tilt-scroll wheel has four colors (off, green, blue, and red) which correspond to different DPI levels, and the profile button has three colors (red, green, and blue) which correspond to the three possible profiles. The left side of the mouse has two customizable thumb buttons, defaulting to forward and back browsing functions.


On the bottom, there are four large silicon feet, which glide very nicely on most surfaces. We can also see the laser sensor and the weight compartment. Seven total weights are included with the mouse, packaged separately in their own plastic container, which add up to 40g. There is foam padding holding the weights in place, both in the mouse and in the container, to keep the metal from jingling or moving during gameplay.

Now that we've had a look at the mouse, let's install the software and do some testing.
