Our opinion

Well, to be honest, after using both products for couple of months we think that the Trust GXT 161 Disan is worth spending the extra money. It is much more comfortable to use, battery holds charge for about a week and then recharging is easy with the USB cable.
On the other hand, the Z4000 by HP is a good mouse but we would only rate it as fair due to some issues - the mouse itself sits quite low in the palm and at least for us it was quite uncomfortable to use for longer period of time. Also, batteries drained quite fast so it became expensive to maintain by changing them every couple of months.
