The mouse itself is rather interesting looking, and in fact my first thoughts were of a certain dark lord…
Still, with that in mind, the main shell body is made up of a glossy black plastic, and each of the extra buttons are coloured a pastel like red. The scroll wheel is silver with a black rubber coating, and the main left and right clickers are built into the frame of the mouse.
Along the left hand side there’s a rubber grip for the thumb, with a slight indentation making this mouse a right hander only. Below this, is the DPI switching… switch, which can be flicked forward or back to lower or raise the DPI. Above it, you have the forward and back buttons which are mainly used while navigating your web browser.
At the rear is a scribbled "O" logo, with a possible cubed "3" after it, though I can’t be sure if that’s just a squiggle.
Running down the centre of the mouse you have the scroll wheel – which can be jigged left or right for 2 extra buttons – and situated behind this are two buttons: "lift", and "mode." The former allows for a tracking of what distance the sensor is from the mouse mat material, and the latter handles macro profile switching.
Flipping the mouse over we get a good look at the interesting looking base. Uncharacteristically the laser sensor is off centre, it’ll be interesting to see how this affects usage.
Running around the edge of the mouse’s underside are the feet, but instead of being made with the usual teflon like other gaming manufacturers have used, the Ozone Smog utilises ceramic. There’s also a button which opens the side of the mouse to unclip the finger grip, and adjust the weights – see next page.
The cable isn’t the usual plastic either, Ozone have opted to use a knitted fabric instead which does seem a little more professional in some senses. The USB connector is also gold leafed which improves the durability of the connector over the normal nickel plating; makes it look a little better too.
