Good cheap mouse


Works good I've been using it with my old computer that i don't use for gaming and its perfect

Kind of small and the clicks are louder than a normal mouse

Consumer review by:

Good Standard Mouse


I used it on a flat wooden desktop surface. I tested it with my netbook - how rapidly that mouse pointer moves on a 1024 x 600 resolution. As noted, I've only used it for less than a day.

It's functional at its default 1000 dpi ; The optic eye is steady - it does NOT cause the pointer to jump around the screen ; The mouse wheel is almost whisper quiet, with the exception of scrolling up

The primary mouse buttons make more noise than your average mouse, but that's mainly because they're also bigger


Consumer review by:

Only good for 3 months


Cheap price and decent looking

Cheap plastic feeling. Buttons are good for only 3 months

Consumer review by:

Good for both left and right handers


The first few minutes I used this, the scroll wheel would make an annoying sawing noise when spun too fast, but that later disappeared almost completely, possibly because rough edges wore off, or lubricant spread around.

This is the 2nd best mouse I've tried when it comes to tracking well on all types of surfaces -- dark/light, glossy/ dull, solid color/irregular pattern. It failed only the clear surface test (no optical mouse I've tried works on them) and wasn't quite...

Great Computer!


The mouse feels cheap but I haven't had any problems yet The case is boring but that doesn't matter either

Gtx 660 ; Stays cool and quiet ; Runs any game I throw at it ; No problems at all ; Windows 8 (because there's nothing wrong with it you haters)

Power cord prongs was bent a little but that didn't matter and probably the shippings fault

Newegg pulling bait and switch!!!


Once might be as fluke, this is the 2nd time in a week. They did the same thing with blank Sony DVDs. Is newegg really sinking this low to drag people to their website???? If they want to prove me wrong, they need to have a steady run of free or near...

this is not a review about this mouse. I don't have one as newegg is pulling stunts I would have never thought they would do! I just checked a 4 star rating to not influence the rating already given the product by people who do have one

This is the 2nd item newegg has had a really great price on in an add that was already sold out when I went to buy one. This is one of the oldest games there is in the sleazy sales book. Advertise a great price on something, have no where near as many...

Nice Mouse


It works as a mouse should

I haven't seen any glitches

Amazing cheap mouse


Not sure what the fuss is about being it small. My brother is 5'11" and it fits his hands perfectly. If you're over 6' I guess it's best you get a custom made mouse... oh, and good for you!

Does what it's supposed to. Performs as a cheap affordable mouse. Currently being used at my parent's store about 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Takes the abuse like a champ


Consumer review by:

Great mouse for less thant $15.


It's bigger than a laptop mouse, smaller than a desktop mouse. Maybe that's an issue for some people, but I've been playing every game I own on two separate computers without any issues. Besides, that price! It's totally worth it.

Well-built ; Good DPI ; Wired ; Sturdy

None that I can think of

Gimme the Rebate


I think this is a good deal. I hope the Zalman works out better than my Rosewill, which turned itself off every now and then, requiring me to unplug and plug it in again. That Rosewill is sitting on the shelf at the moment.

After rebate, only 5 smackeroonies ; Being a slight bit smaller than your usual rodent, it is a great mouse for people with average to smaller than average hands ; Although it is ambidextrous, you don't have to be bi to use it. Whichever way you go is...

I got to wait wait wait for my rebate bate bate. After mailing in all this jazz, I actually get 5 - .45 = $4.55
