Too small for long fingers and cheaply made

 

Ok mouse for

The mouse is just a tid too small if you have long fingers. It feels fine for a while, but after 2 hours of gaming my fingers start cramping up. I had this product for probably 4 years now, but have used it exclusively for gaming with my gaming rig....

Drivers and more

 

I'm on a WinXP machine, other versions may be different. I used the "HID-compliant mouse" standard mouse driver (chosen by default). Next, I downloaded and installed "X-Mouse Button Control". Okay, I was getting frustrated, but after trying several...

Once I've figured out how it worked, well, it works. Ownership 2 hours. Smaller, mostly comfortable. I don't feel like my hand is wrestling with a big bar of soap. It worked right out of the box (in basic, non-configurable default mode). I don't know...

(Solutions in "Other thoughts".) No driver, no instructions, no info (not even online). I couldn't set the buttons, so, scroll-wheel-button did nothing for me (I use it for dbl-click). Rapid fire _seemed_ to do nothing. After about 2 minutes,...

tough long lasting mouse

 

I like this mouse so much I decided to get a spare so that if and when this one dies, I have a new one just like it. I am afraid they may quit making it. Planned obsolescence.

This mouse has been in use on a daily basis since 11/12. That is 2 years without a hitch. It has been knocked off my desk and banged around a bit and it still keeps going.

Every now and then I must push the wrong button. Not being much of a techie-- I just unplug it and plug it back in to re-set it.

Don't Buy this Junk

 

There is absolutely not one Pro remark which can be said about this mouse.

This is a no egg item, however the review site made me give it one to post the review. I have had it less than 3 hours of use today, it started out working, little by little it has lost use of just about every function. I can't even right click and...

This mouse was a big disappointment

 

As others have said, the mouse is cheaply made, but then it gets worse. There was no manual or software in the package or at the manufacturer's site. As far as I can tell the 7 buttons are not programmable which pretty much makes them useless for...

Price

Cheaply made No manual or software 7 buttons are not programmable No "Auto-fire" as advertised Button placement is also poor

you get what you pay for

 

It is very cheap, so I didn't expect it to last very long. It is comfortable to use, but I have pretty small hands for an adult (about 6" from palm to fingertip). The scroll wheel started acting funny after about 4 months.

Affordable. DPI button is nice if you care about that sort of thing.

You get what you pay for. After about 7 months of daily use, the wheel likes to randomly stop working, sometimes the wheel doesn't scroll (it spins and nothing happens), and the left button has started to stick for long periods of time. Autofire button...

First Zalman Product--Impressed!

 

For $17 you can't really complain, the features make up for something such as weight which is still decent.

This mouse does the trick. DPI button w/ red LED indicator Back and forward buttons Scroll wheel feels unique Auto-fire button if that's your thing Great for entry level gamer or someone on a budget
