    Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, today launched the Razer Abyssus gaming mouse. By combining simplicity with a state-of-the-art 3.5G 3500 dpi infrared sensor, the Razer Abyssus stands ready to frag.

    "Less is more," said Robert "Razerguy" Krakoff, president, Razer. “We’ve taken our ambidextrous three-button mouse design and loaded it with our industry-leading technology without the added cost of too many bells and whistles. Our goal with the Razer Abyssus is to give competitive gamers access to gaming grade hardware without breaking the bank."

    I hate locking scroll wheels. My Sidewinder has that too. It annoys the hell out of me.

    If razer say it comes with the fundamentals they really mean it I was surprised this had a scroll wheel. Hell even the mamba or there other mice don't have that many bells and whistles by my books.

    I never understood the love of Razer mice. I always thought Logitech made much better stuff.

    That's not "on the fly" control. I have to stop shooting to change to a higher dpi? sh!tty

    I never understood it either until my Copperhead crapped out and I bought a G9. Needless to say I miss my Copperhead, it had a great comfortable shape and wasn't too heavy. This G9 was designed for a robot hand and is very heavy even without the weights. I'm more or less used to it now, but if I had plenty of disposable income, I'd go back to a Razer mouse.

    $50 for a "no frills" mouse?! This is prettymuch the same thing as the $40 Salmosa isn't it? Less is more? I'm not buying it this time... (no pun intended)

    Oh Sir you are mistaken. Logitech's products are way inferior to Razer, unless you count the latter's Lachesis, in which case I wholeheartedly agree with you. :)

    Watch out man. Mailman has a longer pee stream than anyone here. A match with him and you'll end up with your leg wet. :laugh:

    And why would you say that? Personally I just find my MX Rev more comfortable, the wireless is nice, more things can be hotkeyed to it, Logitech customer service is awesome, the list goes on, plus even as a non-gaming mouse it's dpi is good enough for anything out there imo.

    unless I am going blind or those pics are just too dark I dont see side buttons... I will pass this up by default

    I also dont need 3500dpi to be competetive. just a comfortable mouse with a good polling rate and ofcourse my two side buttons... thanks Logitech

    It seems that all companies doing "pro-gaming" gear have real difficulties with actually designing something thats usable for progamer (or at least gamer).

    I´ve seen plenty of gaming mices and none of them is perfect, one close to perfection is ROCCAT Kone, but just close, not perfect.

    Maybe it would be better if some real gamer designed gaming mouse. :D I´m afraid I won´t live that long to see that happen.

    First thing I noticed was no side buttons!
    back in the day my mouse never had them once I got a mouse with side buttons and started using them makes things more efficient.

    My logitch G9 serves me well. Everything I need/want in a mouse it has. TRUE on the fly dpi settings, custom profile settings, custom button mapping, weight adjustments, and comfortable grip. My only gripe about it is the mouse wheel lock being on the bottom but thats not a real big deal since I dont use it in game. Which might I add they changed with the new g500,

    Instead of side buttons, they put a 3500 dpi engine in it. Good job, NOT!
    But fanboys will buy it anyway.

    If it was $30, I might have had more genuine interest...
