OCZ Technology Dominatrix Laser Gaming Mouse
October 28, 2008

The Basics (continued):

Now that we have worked our way around the outside of the mouse, let's consider some of the features that make the OCZ Technology Dominatrix adaptable to different playing styles. As do other gaming mice, the OCZ Technology Dominatrix comes with "customizable weight cartridges". This gives you the ability to adjust the weight of the mouse according to your own preference. Simply twist the plastic cover off of the bottom of the mouse and push the small cylindrical weights into the accommodating foam base. As you can see in the pictures below, I opted to install three of the seven available weights.

Another special feature of the Dominatrix is the 4-way tilt scroll wheel. Most mouse scroll wheels serve two functions - vertical scrolling and as a third mouse button. The OCZ Technology Dominatrix takes us to the next dimension, allowing the scroll wheel to be maneuvered horizontally. I found this feature to be rather uncomfortable because it required me to lift my pointer finger from mouse button 1 to get the necessary leverage to push the wheel side to side. If you often find yourself scrolling horizontally through the desktop this feature will make your life a little easier. Buyers beware: the games I tested did not recognize the side to side motion of the scroll wheel as a usable button, so you cannot, for example, program this button to lean around corners in first person shooters.

The last and arguably most important feature of the OCZ Technology Dominatrix is the ability to record macros. You are not restricted to recording just mouse clicks however - you can record a combination of mouse clicks and keyboard strokes to the computer. Mouse buttons 5 and 6 are then used to activate the recorded sequence.


Installation:

Thanks to the USB 2.0 interface, installing the OCZ Technology Dominatrix laser gaming mouse was a stress free process. Just insert the USB cord into the computer and the mouse comes to life. To get full functionality out of this device you can then install the provided software and "advanced gaming mouse driver." After a reboot of the computer you will now be able to fire up the Dominatrix mouse software. The software will allow you to record macros that can control keyboard and mouse functions all through one simple interface.
