This should not be regarded as a cheap mouse, although it would not be fair to recognise the modest price of the product.

It is not a cordless mouse but that should not be considered a substantial drawback except on a few occasions.

My main concern is that I find the mouse slightly heavy and uncomfortable to use. I appreciate that such points are matters of taste, but children have found the mouse to be a little larger than they would normally expect. I would go along with that. Also, I have grown used to and quite like the 'rubberised' surface given to parts of such devices and I miss that in the present case.

Further, the mouse wheel, particularly when it first arrived, was very stiff and was close to causing blisters on my fingers being as the wheel has serrated edges and use was very much like having to wind on the time/date of the traditional sprung watch by a few days.

The fact that the wheel has now eased is not necessarily comforting as it may indicate that the wheel might become too loose over a period of time.

Design of a mouse is particularly important, given the nature of the use to which it is put. As will be seen, my own view on such matters was negative.

On the technical aspects, I would not wish to criticise any aspect of the mouse which appears to give accurate results without any of the negative aspects of some of the visually slick but otherwise cheap but far from cheerful offerings.

For me, a good mouse but an uncomfortable one.

I’m not sure there is a lot can be said about a mouse. And for the price I think it would be nit-picking to find fault with it. It works, but it doesn’t suit me very well. I have large hands and the profile of this mouse is a little narrow for my comfort. I would guess that for small hands it would be perfect.

The buttons are large enough to rest my fingers along and the scroll wheel looks better engineered than the one on my Genius mouse. It also rotates smoothly.

My only other problem is that it is a USB mouse. A mouse really has to plug in at the back of a desktop to keep the wire out of the way of everything. There are never enough USB ports at the back and to have to sacrifice one for a mouse – when there is a dedicated PS/2 mouse port – is just pointless.

For a laptop it would be perfect and I think this one is going to live in my laptop bag from now on.

It seems well-made and works absolutely fine, I’d just avoid it if you have large hands.

Zalmann ZM M100 wired optical mouse
Whilst the trend is to wireless “ mice” these days , competent wired units are still available. Here are my comments from using the above unit on Windows XP and 7 laptops.( I have no Windows 8 or 8.1 unit to test it on).
The unit comes with some 3-4ft of cable and installed OK ( ignore the Windows update of the driver if on Windows 7 as this takes an age and the onboard driver works OK). As suggested in the marketing blurb it is comfortable in the hand ( either) but as far as I can see it has only the standard right click / left click action but there is the option on Windows 7 to switch button action .The central scroll button works as usual.
Summary – similar to original Microsoft type wired mouse at a reasonable price..
If you want a wired mouse – then this is perfectly OK – cannot comment yet on longevity ( there are no batteries to run down anyway – my last one lasted some 5 years plus!) – rate initially as 5 star

For just over £5 it is worth the money. £5 is usually what I like to pay for a mouse. It has a longer cable than my old one, which is a lot more handy. Although I am left-handed, I have become used to using the mouse with my right hand, but just for a test I switched over to the other hand and found it just as comfortable. It is quite light, weight wise but easy enough to control. It's a matter of you get what you pay for. You could pay more for something more snazzy, like a Belkin mouse, but it wouldn't be any more reliable. Cheap, cheerful, comfortable. Oh, and I only have Windows 7, and it installed no problem.

So, this isn't going to set anyone's world on fire but neither should it disappoint as it provides good performance for the low price. Simple design and small in size it fits comfortably into the hand. The buttons are responsive and the central mouse wheel feels sturdy and provides a decent response. General response is good and the weight is not too light which suits me better as I like a bit of weight in my mouse, but this I suspect will cause some people to find it too heavy. The optics seems to work well and certainly for general usage it is a good performer.

On the down side the only obvious bit of low quality is the cable. It feels cheap and is of the moulded plastic variety. I would worry about the strength of it should it catch on anything. It also isn't particularly long. Long enough for general desktop use but if you keep your PC box at a distance from where you work you may struggle.

I do a fair bit of gaming and obviously this probably isn't going to be on any list if you are picking a mouse for serious use. I did give it a whirl around BF4, Arkham Origins and TF2. It did fine but it was noticeably not on a par with my normal gaming mice in terms of accuracy and response. However seeing as the gaming mice cost over 10x what this mouse does that is not a problem. It would definitely do a job if you only did a bit of gaming every now and then.

In summary a decent cheap option to replace a workstation mouse or worth having around as a backup if needed. The price certainly makes it a good value option.
