Zalman FPSGun FG1000 Mouse Review

The FPSGun FG1000

Zalman intended for the FG1000 to look like a gun but instead it looks like a basketball sneaker. The gadget has the body of a buttonless mouse with a gun attachment protruding from it. The main trigger functions as left click, and the secondary one is right click. Near the thumb two arrow buttons do back/forward Internet navigation. An illuminated scroll wheel indicates the current DPI setting (violet: 100, 600 DPI; blue: 800, 1,000, 1,200 DPI; red: 1,400, 1,600, 2,000 DPI). The DPI switch is located on the mouse nose itself to avoid accidental pressing during gameplay.

The FG1000 is a plug-and-play device but it’s recommended to run the installation CD. The FPSGun Software allows the user to reprogram the five buttons and also manually adjust X/Y axis sensitivity and maximum DPI range. The mouse has a gold-plated USB connector.
