Zalman FPSGun FG1000

 

We've tested some crazy mice over the years, from ergonomic wonders designed to prevent RSI to dedicated gaming mice shaped like an actual handgun, but the new Zalman FPSGun is one of the oddest-looking designs we've ever tested. We approve of its...

Increased horizontal accuracy seemed to help in shooters. Multiple profiles and mousewheel placed in unique location by thumb

Too small for most people to use. Gain horizontal control at the expense of vertical movement. Poor documentation

Unfortunately, the mouse is much too small to comfortably hold if you have normal-size hands. Because you hold the FPSGun with your hand in a vertical position, the blade of your hand rests on the mousing surface. In order to keep your fingers on the...

Zalman FPSGun FG1000 Mouse Review

 

Our test of the gun shaped gaming mouse FPSGun FG1000 from Zalman.

Good button set up ; Trigger shooting enhances gaming experience ; Intuitive wrist movement

Getting used to it takes time ; Non-versatile: not suitable to other PC applications ; Lacks precision even after adjustments ; Requires large table space to play ; Looks like a basketball sneaker and not a gun

Zalman FG1000 FPS Gun

 

Odd looking, but it works a treat

Totally different ; Accurate lateral movement

Limited configurations ; A little too short

At the moment it might be a little pricey to encourage you to pick up on a whim, but give it a go in a shooter and you might just change your mind

A gaming mouse revision that's not just a gimmick? Crazy talk…

Zalman's first foray into peripherals is a gaming mouse with a difference. Gripping the rear pillar like a joystick, your index finger rests on what would be the left button in a conventional mouse. Plug it in and, in achingly teenage fashion, the...

Zalman FPSGUN FG-1000 Gun Style Gaming Mouse

 

A new way of fragging.

Zalman is famous enough for its quality PC cooling and liquid cooling devices as well as fans, modding accessories, PC enclosures, gaming headphones, and even 3D monitors. But today we are going to review a "ballon d'essai" of quite a different domain....

ZALMAN FG1000

 

I'm intrigued by the idea of a pistol-grip mouse for ergonomic reasons. This device fails to deliver.

The scroll wheel is nicely coloured based on device DPI, and all normal mouse buttons are available. Also, the device was on sale for a ridiculously low price

The device is not worth what I paid for it. My somewhat small hands seem to be too big for the device. I could describe numerous ways in which the device fails to fit my hand. I tend to grab for this thing when I need a break from my mouse, but it only...

Very Disappointed

 

If you are planning to use this more than an hour or so a week, then STAY away. This mouse has ecrotizing fasciitis!!!! Not worth the money to return it, I will just chalk this one up to lessoned learned.

It glows and still scrolls

Within the first week the top trigger finger clicker started to stick pretty bad. After about 5 days of constant use it finally stop sticking constantly. Then not two weeks later the right side rubber piece falls off and then a couple days later the...

Like this mouse very much

 

I use this mouse not only for gaming, but for general use, as I have nearly crippling carpal tunnel. Using this mouse has removed a lot of my pain in just a couple weeks of using it.

Great for carpal tunnel sufferers. The vertical grip allows you to hold it in a natural "handshake" manner instead of twisting your forearm as with a regular mouse. This has done a lot to reduce my pain ; Innovative style- it takes a little getting...

Not as flexible as my Logitech MX510 perhaps ; Not made for large hands

ZALMAN FG1000

 

I really wish I could be using this mouse more, but it's just too unreasonable. If they had a larger one, I'd probably buy it.

Mouse works fine. Cool concept

Mouse is so small, I can't effectively use it. I have fairly large hands, but not huge and my hand is taller than the mouse grip by more than a 1/2 inch. This makes the trigger and scroll wheel difficult to use properly. I have to tilt my hand not have...
