For many years it has been the case that if you were a gamer you would have purchased a specialised gaming mouse, or at least you would own a high-calibre mouse. However now, there are a few alternatives on the market designed specifically to try and change this and today we are going to look at one of those. In fact, we can’t call this a mouse, it is an input device for sure and yes it does control the cursor but it’s not a mouse.

What’s wrong with a mouse? Well, this may sound like a stupid question but in the mice evolution of design, it was created to be used as an input device for all aspects of computing. Unfortunately the mouse wasn’t created specifically for gaming. You could argue that there are many mice out there that have been created just for gaming but lets be frank, they’ve taken a standard mouse design and tweaked it to make it perform better in the gaming category. It’s like taking a Ford Fiesta, improving the engine and aerodynamics by adding a spoiler but then trying to call it an F1 car. To be a true gaming device it has to be built as such from the ground up.

Zalman are a Korean company that develop and produce aftermarket desktop computer products with a primary focus on cooling enhancement and like many companies are trying to expand their range into peripherals.

    Hi,

    Although this article is fairly old, I’d still like to reply on it.
    I’ve been using this mouse since February 2009 and I loved it ever since.

    I’m a freelance webdesigner and spend lots of hours in Photoshop.
    I’m glad I found this mouse, because frankly, this mouse is so nice and accurate to use in PS (also in GiMP).

    Next to that I use it in, yeah, FPS games. However, I also play SimCity 2013 a lot and I also prefer this mouse over a ‘normal’ one.

    The thing is, I never get tired of it. I never get a painful hand or wrist or what not more, it’s just perfect. I wish that more people would give this mouse more time to get used to it. Almost everyone I know and who uses my FPSgun when they’re over here, love it.
