Visual inspection

The DM2 Comfy features an ergonomic oriented design with wide side panels and a smooth body style. The LED illumination integrated into the DM2 Comfy is located on the scroll wheel and at the back within the Dream Machines logo. In terms of functionality and performance, the  mouse has a weight of 94 g and uses the PixArt 3310 optical sensor alongside Omron switches.

 

The main buttons, the left-right clicks use Omron D2FC-F-7N switches just like the DM1 Pro S model. These switches are rated for up to 20 million clicks and are well-known for their excellent tactile feedback.

 

The scroll wheel uses a TTC switch that has a lifespan of 3 million-clicks, in addition, the LED illumination is integrated in the scroll wheel, especially to the translucid sides. The middle of the scroll wheel is rubberised and provides a good grip.

 

Above the scroll wheel in the center of the mouse there are the DPI switches, the two buttons have a glossy texture in contrast with the matte body of the DM2, these switches cycle through the five pre-installed DPI profiles. Each profile is identified by its own color in the LED illumination, these are the following: Red – 400, Blue – 800, Green – 1600, Purple – 3200, Orange – 5000.

 

On the left side of the mouse we find two buttons, these have the “forward – back” functions.

 

The back sidefeatures the  Dream Machines logo, it is  illuminated in tandem with the scroll wheel and provides visual feedback for which DPI profile is selected.

 

The mouse uses a 1.8 m red & black braided cable with a gold plated USB connector that is protected by a rubber cap when not in use.

 

On the inferior side of the mouse we find mounted the three Teflon feet and the optical Pixart PMW 3310 sensor capable of 5000 DP and featuring a LOD of just 1.8 mm.

 

Testing

Jus like the rest of the Dream Machines lineup, the DM2 Comfy mouse does not require a driver to function properly, the DPI profiles are stored onboard and are predefined. The mouse has six settings for DPI and lights, each color represents a DPI value, also the two side buttons can´t be reassigned to different functions. The outer surface of the mouse is matte and rubberized, it is not fingerprind or stain resistand, and after a few hours of usage some spots started to appear. However if the mouse is cleaned regularly there shouldn´t be any problems.

 

 

Gaming and daily use

The overall shape of the DM2 Comfy is aimed at right hand users, the right side is shaped for better finger placement while the top part of the body is slightly angled downwards to provide a better fit for Palm-Grip type of playstyles.

 

The performance of the mouse in games is excellent, the main clicks use the Omron D2FC-F-7N switches while all the tracking is done by the PixArt PMW 3310 DH optical sensor, thus the whole package offers a good gaming experience due to their performance. The optical sensor provides good tracking and LOD distance, especaily in the case of fast paced games such as Battlefield 1 or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The Omron swtiches provide good tactile feedback and the scroll wheel has a smooth rotation while also having distinct steps.

The mouse was tested both in normal use & gaming.

Normal day to day use consist of Internet browsing and a few photo & video editing software.
The games used for testing are the following:

– Battlefield 1 (multiplayer)
– Grand Theft Auto V
– Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
– Prey
– The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

 

Final thoughts

The Dream Machines DM2 Comfy is designed for optimal ergonomy during long gaming sessions, the shape of the mouse is flat and wide to allow for a better grip of the hand, in addition, this shape is oriented for palm-grip type of usage thanks to the wide side plates of the mouse.

The gaming performance of the mouse is great thanks to the PixArt PMW 3310 DH optical sensor and the Omron D2FC-F-7N switches used in the main clicks. The sensor is accurate and the switches provide a good tactile feedback, in addition, the lack of any software ensures that the mouse is ready for use in any occasion. Just like other Dream Machines mices, the DM2 Comfy offers a pure gaming experience all the features being either performance or ergonomy oriented.

In conclusion, the Dream Machines DM2 Comfy is a ergonomy oriented variant of the Dream Machines DM1, offering similar options and performance packaged in a comfort aimed case and outer surface. One drawback of the DM2 are the underside feet that provide a good glide on most surfaces, however at least in the case of this review, the edges of the feet started separating from the mouse body and scrating the mouse pad.
