If you’re looking for a really cheap gaming mouse then you’re going to be really glad that you took a look at this one! 😉
Cheapest Place To Buy: Amazon.com
Warranty: 1 Year
My Rating: 1 out of 10 (DO NOT GET THIS MOUSE.)
The Zelotes is a really cheap 7 button PC gaming mouse that has a max sensitivity setting of 5500 DPI.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: Many people have been using this mouse – even the updated version of it – and it seems to be made of very crap quality. I’ve adjusted the rating above but I will not be updating the rest of the content listed here really because it’d be too time consuming. I really truly did think that this mouse was a cool one and it could be… but…
This mouse has no official driver support, it is made of super crap quality and most people find that the mouse stops working after a few weeks of use. There is no official contact support with Zelotes.
If you need a solution, get a refund from Amazon. Tell them that this product is of complete crap, rate the mouse on Amazon as 1 star and make sure other people realize that this mouse is not worthy of purchase.
If you’re looking for a cheaper mouse that delivers on quality then I’d highly recommend checking out the Redragon M601. It’s an awesome mouse with a low price point.
WHAT IS DPI AND DOES IT REALLY MATTER?
DPI (dots per inch) is a measurement of the sensitivity for a PC mouse.
All in all mouse sensitivity is going to be a personal choice. But more choices of DPI settings in a mouse = easier optimal mouse settings. What I mean by that is the sensitivity that you like best. The one that will help you be more accurate for those head shots and executions. 😉
If you will be using a screen with lower resolution then I recommend that you have your mouse settings set to 1000-1600 DPI. I say this because when your moving your mouse pointer over the pixels on your low-res screen then you don’t really need to be moving a bunch of dots per inch.
If you have a higher resolution (HD) screen then you’re going to want to go with 2400+ DPI. Your mouse will be much smoother and accurate when it is able to move swiftly around a bunch of pixels on your screen.
So yes, DPI settings in a mouse does indeed matter. The Zelotes Optical USB Wired Gaming Mouse has a max setting of 5500 DPI. The adjustable DPI Switch on the top of the mouse is able to switch the DPI sensitivity. When you click the switch it will flash in different colors indicating which setting you just changed it to. The Zelotes can switch between 1000DPI(Red Light) / 1600DPI(Green Light) / 2400DPI(Blue Light) / 5500DPI(White Light).
OTHER GREAT FEATURES OF THIS ZELOTES MOUSE
The Zelotes also has side buttons on it. This is going to be very helpful if you want to be able to set your med-pack button or special skill to your thumb rather than a different key on your keyboard. This is crucial to be optimal on your next quest to save the kingdoms, or for when you step foot on the battlefields of war. 😛
The tracking system for the Zelotes is with an optical LED. It is very responsive as well since it is a USB wired mouse. The build on the mouse feels very premium regardless of its cheap price!
It is ergonomically designed as well meaning it was made to fit all. The wire is going to be tough be to tangled due to its constriction boot shoe lace design!
This mouse is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, ME, 2000 and Mac OS. No matter which platform you may be on, this mouse will work for you!
The Zelotes gaming mouse has a unique color illumination. It is a very cool gradient between many different colors. I’m not really sure how many colors it switches between, but it gives off a really slick feel!
Amazon is awesome and has this mouse listed for less than $15! Comparing this mouse and its price to other similar mice such as the 2000 DPI Weyes 6D Gaming Mouse or the 1600 DPI E-3lue Cobra, the Zelotes wins simply because of the amount of value you get for the little amount of buck. You see, the Zelotes has a max setting of 5500 DPI and it freakin’ CHANGES COLORS AUTOMATICALLY!! (Sorry, I really like having bright colors on my computer accessories 🙂 )
In my opinion the Zelotes would be a great mouse to get if you’re shopping around for a really cheap gaming mouse that will deliver on precision. The design looks and feels like it is of high quality and I think this mouse should actually be priced around $20-25 at the LEAST due to the abundant amount of value you receive with it.
What do you guys think? Does the Zelotes deliver on value for its price? (I know, it doesn’t deliver value at all, and it’s depressing.) 🙁
