Budget gaming mice can be tricky, not only because there are so many, but it can also be hard to find which one offers the best performance. To stand out from the crowd, budget models usually feature a number of unique features, outlandish designs and more to try and attract buyers; the Speedlink Z-DW which I am reviewing today is no exception. The mouse features not one, but two scroll wheels, as well as a range of extra buttons that should appeal to a wide range of gamers; is this a worthless gimmick, or could Speedlink be onto a cool and practical idea?
Being a budget friendly model, I’m not expecting earth shattering performance from this mouse; it would be unfair to do so. What I am looking for is decent build quality, a good range of practical features, reasonable performance and all round value for money. There are countless gaming mice available on the market for a similar price, so I’m eager to find out how the Speedlink Prime Z-DW compares.
As you can see, we’ve got a 3200 DPI optical sensor, right hand ergonomics, eight programmable buttons, two scroll wheels, internal memory for profiles and macros, colour customisation and more. At least on the features side of things, this mouse does sound fairly exciting and competitive.
As a side note, I’ll be testing this mouse out on the new Speedlink Invictus Core Gaming Mousepad. I don’t normally review gaming surfaces as I find them to be very subjective, but Speedlink were kind enough to ship it along side the mouse and it would be a shame to waste it.
You won't be able to dismiss this by usual means (escape or click button), but you can close it programatically based on user choices or actions.
