FPSGun Mouse....Interesting!!!

Mattheu T., Newegg
23 March 2013
  • Summary: I can't say when I've last seen or heard of a computer mouse device like this. It's unique and innovative design alone warrants a second look at this little piece of hardware. Well, that said and being a hardware geek, I just had to buy this and try it out....at least it was on sale when I ordered it from Newegg.
  • Pros: Unique and innovative design. Easy to install and set up support software. Comfortable in use and requires little learning curve.
  • Cons: Bigger hands may have issues with this device. More dpi control would be desirable...but what the hey!...can't expect any peripheral to be absolutely perfect all the time. Lack of downloadable drivers and / or software / driver updates.

Too Small

Michael L., Newegg
6 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this as a novelty item when it was heavily discounted, but it is far to small for my banana hands. Would be great for kids, or anyone that has very small hands, and may function quite well once one gets used to it, but it is far to small for me.
  • Pros: - Seems to have good tracking
  • Cons: - Too small!

What is this? A mouse for ANTS?

Scott G., Newegg
31 October 2012
  • Summary: Only buy if you routinely get made fun of for your tiny, womanly hands. Or if a Walther PPK feels WAY too big for you.
  • Pros: Vertical, semi-ergonomic, many buttons.
  • Cons: They must have used midgets or children when designing this mouse. The "gun grip" part is only like 4 inches tall, wrapping all four of my fingers around is impossible, wrapping 3 around while putting my pinky below is better, but still extremely cramped and awkward.

for small hands warriors

Dmitriy O., Newegg
9 October 2012
  • Summary: As I said, it could be a great device for such a gamer as I am, but the handle is too small for me. If the handle itself was bigger, like a real handgun handle, it would make an awesomist gamer's piece.
  • Pros: Peculiar, interesting looking, has high potential (unfortunately, not fulfilled)
  • Cons: too small even for my hands, and I am a relatively small guy.

Good price, enough quality

Luis M., Newegg
13 September 2011
  • Summary: In extreme cases of gaming the cable can be a little annoying, a wireless and a adjustable weight version can be a good improvement
  • Pros: Its a good mouse, the multiple levels of resolution is useful in games even in the desktop. The ergonomic shape is not only for the games, also is comfortable in the daily use. The movement is soft. The clicks feels good.
  • Cons: The quality: The soft plastic covers of the sides are peeling off after sixth months of constant use, I had to glue them back with a better glue.

FPS mouse with issues

Ruth R., Newegg
29 March 2011
  • Summary: I would only purchase this again if they
  • Pros: 1) Helps with wrist pains. I have experience lots of wrist pains with normal mice, and this helps quite a bit. It sits at a comfortable angle that is easy to use (after getting use to it).
  • Cons: 1) The cord is irritating. The cord on the side catches on everything. I taped it to the top front of the mouse, and I'm having less issues with it. My opinion is, if you spend a lot on a mouse, you really don't want to have issues with its cord.

Great idea for a mouse!

4238340002418024, Newegg
19 February 2011
  • Summary: ZALMAN had a great idea when they released this mouse. Got it when it was on sale for 20 bucks, and was not disappointed in any way with it's performance. On the software side, though, I really wish they would come out with a compatible version. While you can't change any of the sensitivities or buttons, at least it works and the dpi switch is responsive. This mouse feels so awesome when playing Left 4 Dead 2 and Counter Strike: Source.
  • Pros: DPI switch, programmable buttons, comfortable fit to right hand.
  • Cons: Software does not work with Win7 or Vista.

Best ergonomic gaming mouse, not best gaming mouse

Raymon D., Newegg
11 December 2010
  • Summary: * Not a laser mouse - optical - be advised.
  • Pros: * Ergonomically excellent. If normal mice hurt your wrists, this mouse will definitely help. I bought it not for gaming but simply so my wrist wasn't rotated all the time. In this respect, it's superb. My wrist never hurts anymore.
  • Cons: * Rubber grip pieces (one on each side) will likely both come off eventually. They actually distort over time. I had to trim both and glue them back on.
