Our review


The DM1 Pro S is available in two finishes, one matt (DM1 Pro S), the other glossy (DM1 Pro S Glossy). We received the two versions, which are also sold at the same price of € 54.99. We do not yet find it with many French retailers yet.



The DM1 Pro S incorporates one of the best optical sensors from the manufacturer Pixart, the PMW3360 which is found in many high-end mice (Mad Catz RAT 8, SteelSeries Rival 500 ...). It supports accelerations up to 50G, speeds of 7 m / s (250 in / s) and climbs up to a maximum sensitivity of 12,000 dpi. As usual, the latter has little importance in the end and is only there to shine on the technical sheet - which the manufacturer easily admits on the technical sheet of his mouse -, since at this level extreme sensitivity, a movement of 2 cm is enough to move the cursor over the width of 3 Ultra HD screens! Remember that most professional players are content with less than 1000 dpi, even a little more for some.

Recent mouse for player requires, the frequency of exchange with the computer is set to 1000 Hz, for a response time of a millisecond.

The stall height of the sensor is calibrated between 1.8 and 2 mm, which allows mouse repositioning without parasitic movement of the cursor.

In practice, there is actually nothing to complain about, the DM1 Pro S follows our slightest movements and supports sudden gestures without firing a shot. We will simply issue a flat on the non-adjustable sensitivity for lack of configuration software for this mouse. If the transition from 400 to 800 dpi still passes, we then immediately increase to 1600 dpi, without an intermediate level, then this then doubles with each change up to the maximum level of 12,000 dpi. A finer setting would have been welcome.



If the DM1 Pro S embeds renowned electronic components and adopts a shape that appeals to the greatest number, it cannot compete in terms of construction with mid and high-end mice (finishes, consistency of clicks). The lack of adjustment software is also regrettable, especially to adjust the sensitivity levels or adjust the backlight. Remains a mouse nevertheless precise and pleasant to handle, well suited to FPS in particular.
