Zalman Announces New Gaming Mice

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 12 comments

Three new additions for Zalman's peripheral's line.

Zalman is a company we associate with coolers, fans, cases and PSUs. However, the company has been dabbling in the peripherals business for a while now, and the company this week announced a handful of new gaming mice and mousepads to add to its line of PC accessories.

First up is the ZM-GM1 gaming mouse featuring an Avago 9500 LaserStream optical sensor and a 6,000 dpi resolution. The ZM-GM1 features seven buttons in total, including buttons specifically for switching up the resolution. The mouse itself is for right-handed users and features blue LED lighting and a black and grey color scheme. It weighs 85g, has a 1.8m cable, and measures in at 125mm x 84mm x 38mm.


Zalman also introduced the ZM-M400 and the ZM-M250, both of which feature a maximum dpi of 1,600. The ZM-M400 has four buttons, while the ZM-250 features six. The ZM-M400 weighs in at 129g and is the heaviest of all three. It measures 112mm x 82mm by 40mm. The ZM-M250 is the lightest of all three mice introduces today, weighing in at 81g. It measures 119mm x 64mm x 34mm.


All three mice will be released on February 1 in Japan, along with a pair of mouse mats that Zalman also revealed today. No word on pricing or availability for North America, but we'll keep you posted.

    Neat, but the ZM-GM1 styling is a bit much. Having the word "GAMING" scrawled across the back is about as cool as having decal on the back of your car that says, "RACING."

    Razer lost my business when they changed to their Synapse driver, is a registration + login really a great idea for a mouse driver when many peeps just want to plug in the mouse and use it... geez!

    another bunch of overpriced mice with too many buttons ...
    After spending over $1000 on mice over the last decade, i've given up on the nonsense.

    I'm happy with my $5 HP laser mouse now :) 
    2 buttons, 1 wheel, dpi not so high I need to click a button 5 times everytime I want to use it.
