Biolink Umatch Biometric Mouse Review - PCSTATS
Austin powers had one, and so did the six million dollar man - a biometric mouse... able to leap tall buildings with a single mighty squeek!

The first feature anyone looking at the Umatch mouse will notice is the clear window on its' side. The window is where the thumb sits during normal operation and where the sensors are housed. Measuring about 17x25mm in size, the clear sensor window scans your finger during the authentication process.

The mouse itself is silver in colour, with a base that feels slightly rubberized. It is a bit larger then most mice at about 40mm tall, but fits quite comfortably in the palm. The unit we were sent to test out was the two button version, but a wheel version is also available. No mice are currently available in the optical flavour however.

The Umatch mouse connects to the host computer via a PS2 and serial port connector. For the mouse to operate, both of these must be connected. Putting all the security gear aside for a second, this is a simple ball mouse. The two large buttons click well, and are fairly fast. I wouldn't call it a gamers mouse, but it certainly does well as an everyday mouse.

Onto the installation procedure, and believe it or not, this mouse need a serial number!
