Great mouse, destructive software 12/12/2013
Beautiful mouse. Excellent design and nice button layout. Works great out of the box.
The HERA software that is required for creating profiles and changing DPI settings is loaded with bugs and bricks the mouse. After using the software to adjust color and DPI the mouse no longer worked correctly. After applying the changes to the mouse, the DPI buttons either made it so that it only scrolls vertically very fast and horizontally very slow. Pressing the different DPI buttons on the mouse only invert the behavior making the mouse effectively useless.
The HERA software erased the default profiles on the mouse and it seems there is no way to restore the mouse to factory default.
Also, since the first time opening the HERA sofware, every time I open the HERA software it tells me "The USB serial number is incorrect." This message only applies to this mouse as I also have the HERMES keyboard and it has no problems. It does this everytime the program is loaded or the mouse is unplugged and plugged back in (regardless of USB port the mouse is plugged into).
I had very high hopes for this mouse but the software ruined the experience and caused me to open an RMA with newegg since GAMDIAS doesn't seem to respond to support emails and doesn't have any useful information regarding fixes for these issues.
Just goes to show how awesome hardware can ruined by awful software.
For those who are thinking of purchasing this mouse make sure to NEVER EVER download and use the HERA software and stick with the default profiles.
The default DPI profiles are nice, the 4 side buttons include back, forward browsing buttons and volume up and down. You can also customize the led colors for the scroll wheel. All this without needing the HERA software.
