    Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, today announced the Razer Imperator, a right-handed ergonomic mouse for palm and fingertip gamers. The Razer Imperator is designed with gaming-grade ergonomics in mind – contours and grooves specifically crafted to enhance aggressive mousing movements made by gamers.

    “Ergonomics and control were the key objectives with this mouse” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer. “Your grip stays locked and planted no matter how often you lift and swipe your mouse while playing. One of the typical complaints of gamers is the difficulty in reaching the side or thumb buttons on a mouse. We have pioneered adjustable side buttons that slide and lock into your ideal thumb position. You just can’t get a more custom tailored fit than the Razer Imperator.”

    Looks like a nice mouse, but at that price I would really be expecting the ability to change the lighting color.

    I don’t see a point in buying this mouse even if it is ergonomic let alone paying $80 for it.

    I’m a huge supporter of Razer but goodness...they could have just developed a left handed mouse or made a left handed version of an existing mouse.

    It looks very similar to Logitech, even that mouse-wheel is same (except blue plastic where is stainless steel on Logitech). Similarity is bit.. big? That thing doesn´t look like Razer..

    Btw. Imperator? What happened to animal names?

    Looks good shame it's not for left handed people too which means it's a total fail for me.
  10. InTeL-iNsIdE Guest

    Meh your the minority, who cares :rockout::laugh:

    Still too expensive, most I would spend on a mouse is about $40 tops, and it would have to be good for me to spend that much, tho I am not a die hard online gamer

    It's too darn tall. Oh well, this may appeal to Logitech users.

    Still named after a snake:

    Check it's scientific name.


    This new mouse looks like a "refined" version of the DeathAdder . . . I don't see too much of a point to upgrade from the DA, aside from the higher polling rates.

    they both seem like cheaper versions of the Sentinel from CoolerMaster. And even though it sorta useless once your gamer image is dropped on it, where are the OLED screens on these...they want the same price, why no OLED?

    Gamer tag images, like I said though it is useless but still more tech for the buck;)

    I will turn it around, why not have an OLED screen?
