Closer Look:

The Hades Gaming H3 Paris has an interesting feel.  While it is physically quite a large mouse, it feels narrow in your hand, but not as narrow as the NZXT Avatar mouse.  Although it has a fairly straight-ahead look, it is definitely a right-handed mouse only as evidenced by the mouse buttons for your thumb and the gentle curve of the main body.  While it is quite narrow, and slightly shorter in length that my tried and true Logitec G5, it has a bit of a hump to the back that actually hits my palm in an odd sort of way.

After prolonged intense use, I find that this mouse actually makes my hand go a bit numb, but I'm sure that I'm the 1 out of 1,000,000 that this would affect this way.  About 10 years ago now, I broke my hand in a horse breaking accident and my hand never healed correctly.  A bone in my hand snapped in half and the two pieces weren't lined up properly when the bone healed.  This actually has cause the bone pieces to overlap slightly and gives me a bit of a knot on both the palm and back of my hand.

There are a pair of thumb buttons on the left side of the mouse that require a little extra push at first, but once this mouse was broke in, they clicked quite easily - although not too easily.  I loathe mice that click too easily on the side buttons as it can cause a lot of issues when typing a post in Wordpress as bumping the "back" button causes you to exit out of your post editor and lose any chances that haven't been saved.  As you can see in the pictures above, the mouse wheel has a nice glow that can actually be turned off in the software as we'll see on the next page.  Just behind the mouse wheel on the top is a DPI switch selector that can be assigned to other functions if you desire.  Lastly the bottom is smooth, uneventful and houses the 1,600dpi optical sensor.

There is no driver has to be installed. By the green Paris H3 utility, you can define all the button functions by yourself. Yes, you are design your own gaming weapon.
