To properly test the OCZ Behemoth Double-Laser Gaming Mouse, I will be testing it on four different aspects; speed, comfort, precision, and customization. To test the speed of the mouse, I will rate how fast the cursor is able to move across the screen. To test the comfort of the mouse, I will rate how comfortable it is to handle. The precision of the mouse will be rated by in-game sniping ability rated by the amount of head-shots. For the last rating, I will be rating how well you are able to customize the mouse to fit your needs.
- Processor: Intel i7 920
- Motherboard: MSI Eclipse SLI
- Memory: Mushkin HP3 12800 7-7-7-20
- Video Card: Nvidia Geforce GTX 260
- Power Supply: Mushkin 800w Modular Power Supply
- Hard Drive: Seagate 1TB SATA
- Optical Drive: Lite-on DVD-RW
- Case: Thermaltake Armor Extreme
- OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
- Mousepad: OCZ Behemoth Regulator Mousepad
- Mouse: OCZ Behemoth Double-Laser Gaming Mouse
- Mouse: Razer Diamondback 3G Gaming Mouse
- Mouse: Microsoft Intelimouse
First up is the speed test, which will be rated on a scale from 1-10. I will be moving the mouse from the top left corner of the screen to the lower right corner. A 10 rating would represent lightning fast, while a 1 would be equal to a snail moving across your screen.
The comfort test is going to be rated by how comfortable and natural the feel of the mouse is to the hand, using a 1-10 point scale, where a 10 represents your hand is in heaven, while a 1 is equal to extreme discomfort.
In the precision test, I will be gaming using Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and using the Barrett .50cal. I will rate the accuracy on a 1-10 scale, where 1 would represent no head-shots and a 10 would mean all head-shots.
Lastly, we have customization. To grade each mouse on this test, I will see exacly how well you are able to change the buttons of the mouse, as well as how easily it is to adjust the DPI resolution levels on the fly while you are in a game. A 10 would mean you can easily change your DPI settings in the game and have full control over changing the buttons using the software. The Microsoft Intelimouse recieved a 0 score in this benchmark due to the fact that there is no abilty to customize the mouse outside of the standard customizations Windows allows (double-click speed, pointer speed, wheel speed, etc.).
The reason the OCZ Behemoth Double-Laser Gaming mouse was rated an 8 in the comfort test is the fact that it is a little large for my hand and I am used to a more relaxed and spread out hand position like the Razer Diamondback 3G was able to provide, whereas the OCZ mouse had a more tense and bunched up feel to it. The customization of the OCZ mouse was better than the Razer mouse, as it has way more options for what the buttons are able to do, as well as has the ability to create a script for a button. I do prefer the way that the Razer mouse is able to change the DPI settings by holding one of the side buttons and using the scroll wheel to change the resolution setting, while you only have four in-game options with the OCZ mouse.
