HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 - first impressions 
HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 is a compact mouse and it is also quite shiny. Its top part is entirely decided in black (except for the grey HP logo), while the bottom part is grey.

The shiny flat design is not going to suit every taste. Our guess would be that mostly females will like the HP Z4000 mouse better.

The HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 is super light and it is only the two AAA Ni-MH batteries that give it more stable and weighty feel.

HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 - user experience
The Z4000 is a budget mouse so lets set this clear from the very beginning - we wouldn't recommend it for gaming or any design work, This mouse is meant to be ultra-portable and comfortable on the go as it is lightweight and compact in size and these are its key benefits.

HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 is comfortable to use and it pairs relatively fast. All you need to do is insert the wireless USB dongle into your laptop or PC and click on the blue "Connect" button on the bottom of the mouse itself. Then give it some time to pair.

There are couple of drawbacks that one needs to consider prior buying the HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 and here are some of our negative observations:
  • It drains the AAA batteries really fast - you need to make sure to turn the mouse off every time it is not in use or it will drain the batteries in quick 3-4 months (on the other mouse I am using I change them once a year at most).
  • Not very comfortable for long use, especially if you have big hands - the mouse is pretty flat so your hand may feel a bit tired after longer use.

HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 price
We believe the official retail price of £25.00 is a fair one and for that price it is definitely a good purchase in 2020.

Thanks for checking our HP Wireless Mouse Z4000 review! Here are couple other mice that we have tested previously and that might be a good alternative of the Z4000:
