Zalman have been a long standing brand that is known by PC enthusiasts for their cooling products and have moved into various other areas, and while they have undergone some hardship as company, they are still with us today. The ZM-M600R mouse comes as part of a new line of products from Zalman and while doesn't aim to set the world on fire, it does look like a safe, yet solid addition to the market.
The outside design looks relatively neutral, and has no side buttons. This is something which will likely be the deciding factor for people choosing this mouse as some may prefer to have no side buttons, others can't live without them. The shape is said to be designed for the comfort of all grip types (Palm, Claw, Finger tip) and has been given finishing touches of an auto changing RGB LED lighting for the logo, while the mouse wheel LED is used as a DPI indicator.
Moving inside, the AVAGO 3090 optical sensor is widely renowned for being one of the better optical sensors on the market, throw in some OMRON switches rated for 20 million clicks and a 32bit processing unit for precise tracking, all of which is then mounted on a high quality PCB to provide low latency for a quick reaction time, you begin to realise that this little mouse is packing some serious hardware for a wallet friendly price.
