Default OCZ Unveils Dominatrix Laser Gaming Mouse

OCZ Technology has just introduced the new Dominatrix laser gaming mouse:

“OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra high performance and high reliability memory and components, today unveiled the latest addition to its peripherals with the Dominatrix, a top-of-the-line laser mouse for PC gamers. The OCZ Dominatrix mouse is built with the hardcore player in mind with a solid design, maximum functionality, and programmable customization unique to each user. The Dominatrix offers a competitive edge with quality ergonomics and advanced features to excel even when immersed in the most challenging gaming environments.

“We continue to rapidly diversify our product range at OCZ in order to offer an end-to-end line of high performance gaming solutions to our customers,” said Ryan Edwards, Director of Product Management. “The new Dominatrix mouse is no exception, offering world-class performance and specifications guaranteed to provide the discerning gamer and enthusiast with an unparalleled tactile control experience.”
Gaming in extremely large resolutions and fast paced battles requires a specialized mouse that is built for comfort and speed, and Dominatrix users can fine-tune the weight and balance of their mouse up to 40 grams for ultimate control. With multiple dpi settings of 2000/1600/800/400, independently adjust both “X & Y” axes for a combined maximum of 3200 dpi for lightning fast responsiveness and fluid gameplay. High speed USB 2.0 delivers a poll rate up to 500Hz and bi-directional connection for breakneck acceleration and control in any first-person shooter.

The Dominatrix features two programmable buttons with three different modes each for game settings and internet navigation to make the mouse your own secret weapon. The included software allows gamers to record, read, and edit unlimited scripts of complex keyboard and mouse commands, while the built-in memory allows you to save your mouse settings onboard, useful when switching computers. Featuring a special 4-way scrolling wheel-tilt button, the Dominatrix allows you to move either side to side or up and down without ever moving the mouse.

The Dominatrix sports a large, ergonomic, and stylish design with a comfortable, no-slip rubber grip. Whether you plug and play or decide to program the software with your unique specifications, the Dominatrix is ready to go right out of the box. Each OCZ Dominatrix mouse is backed by a 3-year warranty and unbeatable technical support so you can always be on top of your game.”

Not too shabby, but I think I'd still stick with my Razer Lachesis :)

You like the Lachesis? I'm looking at one, I like lots of buttons on my gaming mouse, don't know why most have so few. I've been using an mx1000 for years now. It is very heavy though, actually strains my wrist over time.

But there are a lot of people saying the ergonimics on the Lachesis are bad. I have fairly large hands.

Hmm, I'm actually a small handed person, so something like my previous MX518 was like holding a bowling ball with a scroll wheel. It's difficult for me to guess since the thing is so bloody ergonomic I can't really imagine someone not having it comfortably work for them. Altogether though the mouse is quite nice, button layout is great for both LH or RH, and the backlighting on the wheel/logo is subtle, not the slap you in the face turn it off kind of brightness.

I'm on my way to future shop with price match in hand for the lachesis or the g9. I'll palm both and make a decision, thanks for your input.

Rolling along nicely with my G5 ver. 2 here a nice upgrade from my mx518 and the price was right at 29.99. Any word from OCZ on how much this might cost or can we expect it to be in the same as many other mouse in its class.

I forgot to point this out earlier, but the Dominatrix is effectively just a rebadged Cyber Snipa Stinger
