The Dream Machines DM1 Pro is certainly a decent mouse.
It is comfy to use, with a versatile shape which suits different styles of grip. I prefer a claw-style grip but a palm grip is comfortable, too.
The rubberised matte finish is also appreciated – it may not look hugely classy but it certainly helps after a long gaming session when your hands get a little greasy.
As such, using it on a day-to-day basis is a rewarding experience – tracking is smooth and accurate, and you have the peace-of-mind knowing should one of the mouse feet fall off, there are spares included in the box.
The only letdown is the lack of control over lighting and DPI stages. Dream Machines have removed any software from the equation, as they see it as something that could get in the way of your experience. I disagree – with no software, users are stuck with the 5 pre-determined DPI stages, while the backlight settings cannot be changed. In 2016, where customisable, RGB lighting has basically taken over peripherals, this is certainly disappointing.
Still, the mouse is good quality and fairly priced at £39.99. It just lacks that extra software control to fine-tune the user experience.

KitGuru says: If software was included with the Dream Machines DM1 Pro, it would be a very capable mouse indeed. As it is, it falls just short of our highest award.
