Today we are looking a new mouse from a little-known company over here in North America.  We've got the latest mouse from Hades Gaming on the bench today and look at the latest optical mouse to come out of this company.  While this company is not that well known over here, they still seem to make pretty solid products and are worth a look - especially if you can score one of these cheap on eBay.  In this review we'll be covering this "Counter Strike" inspired mouse and see if it's as impressive as it looks.  According to press material and promotional images, this is a pretty impressive mouse.  Keep on reading as we find out.

Back Of The Box


Hades has put together a nice mouse, a sleek package and a very decent overall presentation with the Paris H3.  The back of the box includes all the details (I'm assuming) about this mouse and some familiar logos.  CounterStrike and Valve are represented in English but pretty much everything else is not.  Before we get farther into this review and the Paris H3, let's quickly take a moment and find out about Hades Gaming.


About Hades Gaming:

Is high resolution the main feature of gaming mouse? Before 2005, the answer is yes. However, after 2005, the answer is "follow standards". What is standard? Who did the standard? Why that is standard?

The Bundle:

The Hades Gaming Paris H3 bundle isn't much of a bundle, which is typical of mice.  In the box, we find the mouse with a fairly stout cord as well as a manual (not English) that also houses a driver/software CD.  The H3 mouse requires software in order to program buttons and sensitivity but doesn't require installation of the software.  The software is ran from the CD and once setting are changed they are saved to the mouse.  This enables you to specify custom macros, button functions and sensitivity and then be able to transport it quickly and easily to any tournament machine you are playing on.  I was also surprised to see that Hades Gaming has included the full-patched version of CounterStrike on the CD.  Unfortunately, this is not in English either so installation may not go as smoothly as you'd hope.
