AZiO Levetron GM533U Gaming Mouse Closer Look:
Before we get to how I really feel about the AZiO GM533U, let us first take a look at the software that is both included by CD and downloadable from the AZiO website for the mouse. I generally dislike the software section of most mice since most designs are rather clunky, but fortunately this time around it is pretty straight forward. Upon installation, the software seems fairly simple to use. A picture of the mouse sits centered on a lightly blue-lit grid. It looks quite a bit like the box design with the addition of some quick start instructions.
The lower left icon just below the mouse, shown as "Panda" here, is the Profile selection button. Clicking on it brings up the window shown to the right in the picture set below. You can store various profiles for whatever games you desire, or for even just different users on the same computer. It is nice if you have a multi-user computer with two or more people who disagree on button placement.
The "Macro Setting" button to the right of the profile button opens up just that – Macro settings. You can save and name many macro settings that involve the button presses of the three macro buttons: M1, M2, M3, or presses of the keys on your keyboard. For fun, I set up a macro to write out "WTFOMG." For some games, this option is more practical than others. You will just have to remember that you have only three buttons to assign these to before you starting assigning to either one of the left or right clicks, or perhaps the scroll wheel. At least you have the semi-customization options.
