Gamdias Gaming Best Products Reviewed

GAMDIAS is a company that makes a range of high quality, innovative gaming keyboards, mice, headsets, cases, fans, and gaming chairs. They’re all about marrying sleek aesthetics with performance-focused specs while keeping the price tag as low as possible.

You may have heard about their Hermes P3 keyboard, which comes with 16.8 million colours used for back-lighting and low profile key switching. They’re also responsible for the ergonomic and beautifully-designed Zeus P1 RGB optical mouse which is capable of up to 12000 DPI for increased accuracy in competitive FPS games.

You definitely don’t need to be an expert gamer to appreciate how well-made these accessories are.

On top of that, they’re quite budget-friendly as well, meaning you can get yourself a pretty sweet gaming rig without burning a hole through your wallet. To get a sense of their pricing, the Hermes P3 keyboard is around $117 and the Zeus P1 mouse is around $45.

Just this May GAMDIAS unveiled a couple of new impressive offerings. This includes the TALOS M1 LITE PC case which features trapezoidal front tempered glass which will improve airflow while offering complete protection to the components inside. It comes pre-installed with three 120mm ARGB fans which can be synchronized with an RGB motherboard. In addition, they also released the second generation AEOLUS case fans, which is capable of 55 lighting settings and 4 fan speeds.

If they’re anything like the superb first generation M-1 fans then we’re very excited to give them a spin!

In this article, we’re going to be reviewing some of GAMDIAS best gaming accessories. This includes our favourite picks from their range of chairs, keyboards, mice, and cases.

Chairs

GAMDIAS offers up some pretty sweet ergonomic chairs that are sure to keep you comfortable through hours of intense gaming. They’re also quite easy on the eyes.

GAMDIAS Achilles M1

GAMDIAS Multi-Color RGB Gaming Chair High Back Adjusting Headrest and Lumbar, Black/White (Achilles...
  • Customizable RGB Back Light Up to 10 lighting effect options
  • High Resilience Foam Filling, Ensures that the chair doesn't get deform
  • Advanced Leather Style Vinyl which is soft, breathable and resistant to sweating

Review

The Achilles M1 comes with a whole host of great specs geared towards maximum comfort. First of all, it’s got great head support and lumbar support cushions so that you don’t suffer repetitive stress injuries after extended gaming sessions. The soft, breathable leather style vinyl feels great on the back and head. Plus it’s sweat-resistant as well!

Secondly, this chair comes with a lot of adjustability. For instance, the 3D armrest can be adjusted in six different directions and the backrest can be inclined up to an angle of 150 degrees, which is ideal for when you’re watching movies.

In addition, the Class-4 gas lift gives you about a foot in elevation, meaning you’ll be able to adjust your height to match just about any gaming desk configuration. However, this chair is generally tall and if you’re shorter than 5’7”, then be prepared to have your feet dangle off of the floor.

Are you a bit on the heavy side? That’s not a problem at all. Thanks to a very sturdy steel and aluminum alloy base, the Achilles M1 can support around 200 kg! The casters work great too. They stay in place but at the same time, aren’t a hassle to move around, whether it’s on tile, wood or carpet.

Last but not least, we absolutely have to talk about the integrated RGB lighting on the back, in the shape of GAMDIAS’ sleek-looking logo. And the lights are totally customizable too, using GAMDIAS’ own HERA software.

All you need to do is plug the included USB cable into your computer and select the colour palette that you like. Once you’ve done that, you can simply connect it to power bank to keep it powered up. You don’t have to keep the power bank dangling either. There’s a neat flap located on the side which allows you to tuck it in.

Features

  • Leather style vinyl
  • Class 4 gas lift
  • 3D adjustable Armrests
  • Multi-functional tilt
  • 150 degrees tilt lock
  • Max weight capacity is around 200kg
  • Head support cushions
  • Lumbar support cushions
  • RGB streaming lighting on the back.

 

GAMDIAS Achilles P1

Sale
GAMDIAS Multi-Color RGB Gaming Chair High Back with Footrest Adjusting Headrest and Lumbar Support,...
  • Customizable RGB Back Light , Up to 10 lighting effect options
  • High Resilience Foam Filling, Ensures that the chair doesn't get deform
  • Advanced Leather Style Vinyl which is soft, breathable and resistant to sweating

Review

The P1 is pretty identical to the M1 save for a couple of key differences. First of all, the 4D armrests are even more adjustable than the 3D ones you’ll find on the M1. This means 3 inches for height adjustment, 2 inches of forward and back movement, 1-inch side-to-side movement and 15-degree swiveling.

In addition, there’s also footrest included, which takes care of the foot dangling problem if you’re a short person. It’s sturdily constructed and the padding is very comfortable. However, it’s quite short and will only reach most peoples’ calves.

Other than that, the Achilles P1 offers up the same features as the M1. This includes head and lumbar support, customizable RGB lighting and leather style vinyl upholstery.

Price

The P1 is priced around $400, making it more expensive than the M1. However, we believe that the footrest and 4D makes a world of difference in terms of comfort.

Features

  • Leather style vinyl
  • Class 4 gas lift
  • 4D adjustable Armrests
  • Adjustable Footrest
  • Multi-functional tilt
  • 150 degrees tilt lock
  • Max weight capacity is around 200kg
  • Head support cushions
  • Lumbar support cushions
  • RGB streaming lighting on the back
  • Max weight capacity is around 200kg
  • Head support cushions
  • Lumbar support cushions
  • RGB streaming lighting on the back.

 

GAMDIAS Achilles E1

Sale
GAMDIAS Multi-Color RGB Gaming Chair High Back Headrest and Lumbar, Black/Black (Achilles E1...
  • Customizable RGB Back Light Up to 10 lighting effect options
  • High Resilience Foam Filling, Ensures that the chair doesn't get deform
  • Advanced Leather Style Vinyl which is soft, breathable and resistant to sweating

Review

The Achilles E1 is the cheapest chair on this list, but don’t take that to mean sub-par build quality. The E1 is just as sturdily built as the M1 and P1 and even share most of the same features, including the flashy RGB lighting.  The only differences are that it has 2D armrests, which aren’t as adjustable as 3D or 4D ones and the fact that the backrest has a more conventional tilt instead of a multi-functional one. But for the casual gamer, these shortcomings shouldn’t pose much of a problem.

Still, with the high resilience foam filling that’s found on all Achilles chairs and the integrated ergonomic support, the E1 can hold its own against any other gaming chair in its price range.

Price

The GAMDIAS Achilles E1 costs around $270 brand new.

Features

  • Leather style vinyl
  • Class 4 gas lift
  • 2D adjustable Armrests
  • Conventional tilt
  • 150 degrees tilt lock
  • Max weight capacity is around 200kg
  • Head support cushions
  • Lumbar support cushions
  • RGB streaming lighting on the back.

 

Keyboards

GAMDIAS keyboards are undeniably powerful and they’ve got a lot of style to boot.

Hermes P1

Sale
GAMDIAS RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with 32bit Micro-Processor, 2 Macro Keys (HERMES P1)
  • Gambia's Certified Mechanical Switches- Built around GAMDIAS certified mechanical switches with the crisp, tactile feel responsiveness and consistency. Deliver a unique unfair gaming advantage
  • Play Macro via Fn+G1/G2- On the lift FN function key can easily perform your recorded macro by g1/g2 combination
  • Anti-ghosting with N-key Rollover- Supports n-keys work simultaneously no matter how fast your play, all your key presses register

Review

One of the first things you’ll notice is that the front plate of the Hermes P1 is made of aircraft-grade brushed aluminum instead of plastic. Not only is this better aesthetically (and mostly smudge-free), it gives the keyboard a good amount of sturdiness as well.

Just like the original Hermes RGB, the P1 comes with a rest for your wrists. However, this time it’s detachable for those who want it out of the way. Removing it shaves off about 0.26 kilograms off the total weight as well.

Another new addition is the GAMDIAS certified Mechanical key switches which are essentially blue TTC switches. They’re extremely responsive, tactile and give off a ‘clicky’ noise when you use them, which some gamers prefer with their keys.  The switches come with a keycap puller, which allows you to lift them up for easier cleaning and maintenance.

The N-keys Rollover (NKRO) support is something we absolutely adore about the Hermes P1. This basically means that you can type extremely fast and the keyboard won’t miss a single character, even if you don’t press very hard. However, this might be a bit of a problem when you’re gaming because you can accidentally press the wrong button.

Thanks to the onboard 72KB memory and RM Cortex M3 Microprocessor, the Hermes P1 comes with four gaming presets to choose from: Counter-Strike, Dota 2, League of Legends and World of Tanks. There’s also enough space to store up to six of your own player profiles.

You can program these macros using the HERA software and execute them with ease, using the two included macro keys. If you prefer, you can also set macros on-the-fly using the function and F9 keys.

The customizable RGB backlighting is back, and it’s something we particularly love about GAMDIAS keyboards. There are 16.8 million colours and about twelve lighting effects to choose from using GAMDIAS’ own HERA software.

However, there are three significant downsides to the Hermes P1 that we’d like to point out. Firstly, there isn’t a single audio or USB port. Secondly, the removable wrist rest comes off a bit too easily and you can accidentally remove it if you make any intense movements. Lastly, most of the lighting effects are available in one colour only.

Price

The Hermes P1 costs around $100 brand new.

Features

  • 8 million colours in RGB backlighting
  • Four gaming presets
  • Twelve lighting effects
  • GAMDIAS certified mechanical switches with keycap puller
  • Windows Key lock feature
  • N-key Rollover for anti-ghosting
  • Aircraft-grade brushed aluminum front plate
  • Detachable wrist rest.

 

Hermes Lite GKC1002

GAMDIAS Hermes Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Combo (Red Switch) with 256K Built-in Memory Macro...
  • GAMDIAS MECHANICAL Red Switch with 50 MILLION Click Life-Cycle
  • Anti-Ghosting W/ 21-Key Rollover
  • Built-in Memory FOR Macro Recording Keys

The first thing you’ll notice when you plug in the GKC1002 is the cool red LED backlighting. The keyboard comes with five lighting modes, which include four different phases of brightness and a ‘breathing mode’, which dims and brightens the lights every few seconds. You can actually control the pace of the breathing mode using the GAMDIAS’ Hera software.

While the GKC1002 does not come with the popular Cherry MX switches that you get with some of the more expensive GAMDIAS keyboards, the red TTC switches included do a fine job. They’re just as responsive, consistent and give a nice tactile feel.  Plus with the included keycap puller it’s easy to get rid of any dirt and grime that gets stuck underneath.

Just like with the Hermes P1, the GKC1002 comes with two macro keys which you can program with the HERA software or on-the-fly. However, the GKC1002 does come with more built-in memory (256KB).You can also swap the windows and function keys using the software so you’ll never accidentally tab out of a game ever again.

You also get NKRO support for anti-ghosting, just like with the Hermes P1. You don’t, however, get those 16.8 million backlighting colours.

Price

The GKC1002 is priced around $70, which we think is an absolute steal.

Cases

GAMDIAS are newcomers in the PC tower niche but they’re already holding their own against more established brands.

 

GAMDIAS Talos M1

Sale
GAMDIAS RGB Gaming Mid-Tower Case Left Tempered Glass Two LED Strip Switchable IO Port with Two RGB...
  • Mid Tower; ATX, Micro-ATX
  • Two LED strip with rainbow color streaming lighting effects; 2 Built-in 120mm double ring RGB fans
  • Trapezoidal front tempered glass panel, with one tinted swing door design

Features

  • Two LED strips with rainbow color streaming lighting effects
  • Two built-in 120mm double ring RGB fans
  • Tempered glass panels on the front and one side
  • Vertical Graphics card holder
  • Swap-able front I/O plate
  • Compatible with ATX, Mini-ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards.

Review

The Talos M1 was GAMDIAS’ first jab at a gaming PC tower. It’s a standard ATX case, so it is able to house ATX, Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards.  Both the front and one side of the panel are made of slightly-tinted tempered glass, which gives you a full view of all the components while protecting them. It also doesn’t seem to restrict air flow because there’s plenty of gap separation. The side panel has a magnetic hinge and furthermore, it is easily removable when you need to do repairs, maintenance or replacements. The Talos M1 comes with two built-in double-ring RGB fans in the front which we think is quite adequate for extended gaming sessions.

The I/O plate located at the bottom is actually swappable and sports a power switch, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, headphone jack, mic audio jack, reset button, and the fan and LED light controls. That’s pretty much everything you’ll need regardless of whether you’re a casual or hardcore gamer.  With the Talos M1 you have plenty of lighting colours and three modes to choose from: ‘Cycle’, ‘Colour shift’ and ‘Breathe Shift’.

There are a few things we didn’t like about the Talso M1. While you can do vertical GPU mounting, there’s no riser card which would have helped with it. At the bottom, there’s a small snap-in dust filter which doesn’t have any kind of magnetism that allows it to stay on firmly. This is quite a shame because they do have a magnetic filter for the top of the tower. Also, there are no dust filters for the front panel, which makes regular cleaning a necessity.

Price

The Talos M1 costs around $87 brand new.

 

GAMDIAS Talos P1

Sale
GAMDIAS RGB Gaming Mid-Tower Case Left Tempered Glass Two LED Strip Switchable IO Port with Two RGB...
  • Mid Tower; ATX, Micro-ATX
  • Two LED strip with rainbow color streaming lighting effects; 2 Built-in 120mm double ring RGB fans
  • Trapezoidal front tempered glass panel, with one tinted swing door design

Features

  • Two LED strips with rainbow color streaming lighting effects
  • Three built-in 120mm double ring RGB fans
  • Revision 3 Fans that are compatible with GAMDIAS’ Aeolus Box II
  • Tempered glass panels on the front, sides and top
  • Vertical Graphics card holder
  • Swap-able front I/O plate
  • Compatible with ATX, Mini-ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards
  • Rubber grommets for easier cable management.

Review

The P1 is the more luxurious version of the M1. It’s got tempered glass on the top, front, left and right. Both the left and right sides are hinged, which makes cleaning and cable management a breeze. The cables are located on the right side so if you’re not good at managing clean layouts, you won’t need to feel embarrassed since the tempered glass on that side is heavily tinted.

Unlike the M1, the P1 comes with three built-in 120 millimeter RGB fans in the front, which makes the latter significantly better at cooling than the former. The fans themselves are the ‘Revision 3’ models which are generally better performing than those you’d find in the Talos M1. The fans are eight pin and compatible with GAMDIAS’ Aelous Box II, which allows you to add in more fans on the top, sides, and back if you wish. The advantage here is that you can control these with a remote rather than using the controls on the front panel.

Another great addition in the P1 is the rubber grommets, which are perfectly placed for clean cable management.

There are a few similarities between the P1 and the older M1. The I/O is exactly the same and you get the exact colours and lighting modes as well. In addition, the dust filter located on the bottom is exactly like the one you’ll find in the M1. Removing it is easy but it’s hard to snap it back into place.

Price

The Talos P1 is slightly more expensive than the M1 at around $132.

 

GAMDIAS Talos E1

GAMDIAS GD-TALOS E1 No Power Supply Mini-ITX Tower (Black)
  • Sync with motherboard
  • Trapezoidal Tempered glass panel
  • Left Tempered glass panels with swing door design

Features

  • Two built-in 120mm double ring RGB fans
  • Tempered glass panels on the front and left side
  • System-wide RGB synchronization
  • Vertical Graphics card holder

Review

The Talos E1 is their most compact PC tower and it is only large enough to house Mini-ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Like the Talos M1, it comes with two built-in 120 mm RGB fans, which offer 15 different lighting effects to choose from.

The front and left panels are made of tempered glass but only the latter is hinged. It can also be bolted into place with thumb screws. The dust panels on the top and bottom are quite similar to what you’ll find in the M1 and P1. The I/O is located on the top (above the GAMDIAS logo) and isn’t swappable. The number of ports isn’t exactly the same either. There’s only one USB 3.0 instead of two but this should be fine if you’re a casual gamer.

The Talos E1 is great if you’re a gamer on a budget and you don’t have to house a full-sized ATX motherboard. It’s a stripped down version of the M1 and P1. It doesn’t have any LED lighting strips but on the upside, it supports system-wide RGB synchronization as long as you have a compatible motherboard.

Price

The Talos E1 is the cheapest of all three cases at around $79.

Hades M1

Sale
GAMDIAS Optical Gaming Wired/Wireless Mouse Double Level RGB, Hera Software Supported, 7...
  • Double level multi-color Breathing lighting
  • Wired/ wireless mouse
  • Adjustable side panels

Features

  • Wireless
  • Adjustable multi-color lighting
  • Compatible with GAMDIAS’ Hera Software
  • Adjustable side panels
  • Weight tuning system
  • 10, 800 DPI Optical sensor
  • 7 programmable keys
  • 10 million click lifespan.

Review

The Hades M1 is a wireless rechargeable mouse that runs on a Lithium-ion battery. You also have the option to charge it by plugging into a port on the back.

The Hades M1 is weight adjustable, which you don’t get with most gaming mouses. The tuning system is quite easy to use and you’ll be able to dial in your ideal weight in no time. In addition, the M1 comes with two interchangeable magnetic side panels or ‘wings’ which allow you to change the grip style to your preference.

With the Hades M1, you get 7 programmable keys which are a breeze to setup using GAMDIAS’ Hera software. You can program macros, player profiles, keyboard key, media controls, and even windows functions. The keys themselves are supposed to have a lifespan of 10 million clicks, which should be enough for at least a couple of years of hardcore gaming. As a minor downside, the switches on the top are a bit stiff and takes a hard press to actuate.

Something we absolutely love about the M1 is the optical sensor. It’s capable of 10,800 DPI which is more sensitivity than anyone actually needs. However, it works great on all sensitivity levels and FPS gamers should be particularly happy with it.

Last but not least, the M1 comes with RGB backlighting like all of GAMDIAS’s products. You get several lighting settings to play around with and they’re easily switchable using the HERA software.

Price

The Hades M1 costs around $79 brand new.

It’s easy to see why GAMDIAS is starting to become popular among gamers. They offer high-quality gaming accessories that are also pleasing to look at and quite affordable. With some of the most ergonomic chairs in the mid-level price range and performance-focused keyboards, mice and PC towers, we wouldn’t be surprised if gamers choose to build their entire rig around GAMDIAS products.

In addition to the accessories we reviewed above, GAMDIAS also offers a range of great gaming headphones (like the GHS3600 and GHS3300), RGB case fans and even power supplies for PCS, such as the ASTRAPE P1-750G, which is 80 PLUS Gold Certified for efficiency.
