HP Z8000 Bluetooth Mouse review

When you can’t handle wires anymore and when you think wireless is cheesy, turn to Bluetooth accessories. This review is about a Bluetooth mouse, and I have to say, it’s one of the best.

COMPATIBILITY

OS: Windows 8, 8.1

Batteries: 2 AA

Note: Requires a computer with Bluetooth connectivity or a computer with a Bluetooth dongle attached.

REVIEW

This CES Innovation Award-wining mouse is perfect for on the go laptop use, as you can just switch it on and use it(the first time you use it you must pair it with your PC). There is a metal ring around the mouse composed of Zinc and Aluminum, just for a luxurious feel. It does not have a scroll wheel, it instead uses 4-way touch scrolling(swiping your finger on the mouse buttons), like the Apple Magic mouse. It uses special low power-consuming connection, so the battery can last many months, if not a full year without switching up the juice. The only downside to this mouse I’ve found is that you can’t middle-click, which is a problem for me, because I’m a serious multitasker and now I can’t open links in new tabs with 1 click anymore.

THE VERDICT

The Hewlett-Packard(HP) Z8000 Bluetooth mouse is innovation at it’s finest, with fine touch scrolling and precise 2-button control. A great buy for Apple fans, since it’s a great mouse for a lot less than the Magic Mouse.
