Summary: For the price I can't complain too much but mice should defintely last more than just a little over a year. I give it 2 strars as it is average at best. And the mouse failing shortly after a year makes it below average.
Pros: Got this mouse for about $12 bucks after mail in rebate as I recall. Worked great while it worked. Tracked fine and all the buttons were a plus. The thumb rest was nice too.
Cons: Scroll wheel failed a little after a year (has a 1 year warranty). It works but it skips back up when scrolling down. Annoyance that I couldn't put up with. Movement of the mouse was fine however.
Summary: In order to shed some more light on this mouse's gaming performance... I have been using this mouse for gaming for 3 months now and I honestly really like it. It's cheap and has 5 well responsive buttons with a nice scroll wheel. Maybe it is just me but I find it very comfortable to use even for extended usage.
Pros: -cheap, -5 buttons, -well responsive, -no hassles with set up
Cons: None that wouldn't be expected from a cheap mouse
Summary: bought this mouse in deal price with MIR. MIR returned no issues. a little mouse with 5 buttons, little bit too light but weight is ok for daily use. For gaming...very depends... After MIR, price is very low, what do you want me to say...
Pros: It's a medium sized mouse, not light but not heavy either. All five buttons work in Linux, true plug and play. The scroll wheel isn't hard to roll and it has outlasted ANY mouse I have ever owned; both Microsoft and Logitech. It's also an accurate Mouse.
Cons: When I first got it, under the mouse on one side, there was an excess of Plastic that was catching on my Pad. Wasn't even an issue really, filed it down in 20 seconds with a Finger Nail file.
Summary: Good responsive, good buy compare to the MS Basic Optical Mouse OEM for $4.99. Side button allow to go forward, back between webpages. Wire is prefer compare to wireless, no recharge, no extra batteries weight. Would be nice if the wheel/middle button could scroll side to side.
Pros: 5 buttons, Under $10 when on sale
Cons: Middle wheel/button does not side scroll, No usb to ps2 adapter
Summary: This mouse was on "Hot Deals" for $8.99. I was actually surprised to learn Zalman made mice as I have lots of their products, but all from the cooling/fan side of their gear. It does what a mouse should do; It worked straight out of the package with no fuss.(On Windows XP SP3)It is a fantastic mouse for the price and would be just as welcomed at regular price.
Pros: -Accurate and smooth., -Buttons feel & work good, - Scroll Wheel has a rubberized grip.
Cons: -Silent or near silent "clicks" would be a nice touch. (Not that they are overly loud though)
Summary: The mouse works very well. It's nice to have five buttons, all of which are very responsive. The middle button even presses nice, which can be hard to find in mice as it's sometimes too easy to scroll the wheel while trying to middle click. What was best about the mouse? Free after MIR. Hehe. Only con would be the small size and the sharp edges along the bottom edge. The plastic could have been slightly curved on the bottom to side edges.
Pros: Quite responsive, Five buttons, Good middle button (hard to find), Free (after MIR)
