Zalman ZM-M600R Optical Gaming Mouse Review

Inside the ZM-M600R




Popping this mouse open to look at the guts, we first found the left button switch. This is an Omron D2FC-F7N with the 20M notification that indicates a twenty million click lifespan.





For what this mouse is capable of, using a 32-bit MCU is overkill in our opinion. This does not stop Zalman from offering this mouse with the Nuvoton NUC120LC1DN ARM processor, though.




Right smack in the middle of the PCB, we find that there is indeed an Avago A3090 optical sensor used in the ZM-M600R. While limited to 4000 DPI as its maximum, this sensor will easily track any sudden movements, and can drop down when needed for accuracy or in-game sniping.




As we make it to the right side of the mouse, we find the match to the other Omron switch we found, this time under the right click button. The click of the scroll wheel is handled with a more generic pad style switch.




Once powered, we find the lighting under the logo in the heel does cycle through many colors, at this time, it happened to be white. As the ZM-M600R is shipped, it comes set to 600 DPI, and at this time, the scroll wheel is lit with yellow but does not show well in this image. As you step up in DPI levels, the light changes to blue, then red, and finally, pink in its 4000 DPI position.
