    OK guys just wanted to let you know that I just purchased the RAZER Mamba I have heard alot about this mouse, it is supposed to be the fastest on the market. Has anyone here had a chance to use this mouse and if so please tell me it is really worth the $$. I remember my Lachesis and it was a POS when it first came out, to big.. and the cursor problem. I do know that there are firmware updates allready out for the Mamba. Feedback on this is a must. Thanks :toast:

    flippin expensive. Never heard about the mamba until now. Lachesis still owns. Let us know how it works out. Dont forget, as with the lachesis also, to take off the silver lining that says "5600 dpi"

    yea, i have heard the same. people are also saying that razer will send you a teflon ring to go where the silver ring is ... why didnt they just use the teflon in the first place.. confusing..

    Actually, its pretty much the same as the deathadder bt wireless. The lachesis is a bigger mouse, I personally never liked the feel of the lachesis

    I'd die to get my hands on one of those. I'd change my grip from claw to palm just for that mouse.

    This mouse Razer mamba is fantastic probably my next mouse.

    Logitech G series gaming mouse are not soo good for me bad design no ergonomics. :shadedshu

    But i use the MX REvolution for heavy gaming, and i love the fact that you can use the left scroll as zooming +/- with sniper is fast.

    ok guys, I've been using this mouse for the last week and it is an amazing piece of work. Best damn mouse i have ever used/seen! 5600dpi is amazingly fast, when I play CSS my sensitivity in game is .2550 lol not even 1 ! Either way, I would highly recommend this mouse to anyone. great product!:toast:

    Hard to convince me that a wireless mouse is faster than a wired mouse.

    I use a Razer Death Adder. My gaming skills have greatly increased since getting a good mouse.

    Go read all the reviews on this mouse. I didn't believe it until I got this one:rolleyes:

    Just a little FYI, this is the ONLY mouse with 5600 dpi, so if there is no other mouse(wired/wireless) with this kind of speed. Then yes this mouse is the fastest mouse on the market-wired or wireless. I too have a Death Adder and the G5~ those 2 mice have nothing on this one.

    And for those of you wanting to know what this moues looks like/feels like.. its like using the Death Adder but wireless. Its actually a tad shorter in length.

    EDIT: In reference to the "jitter" with the cursor, all you have to do to fix this is by NOT taking off the silver ring~ but download and install the latest firmware/and driver. You have to update the firmware on the mouse in wired mode first. Then plug the base back in~now here is the thing.. when you do that. You have to turn off the Mamba and use a different mouse to move the cursor to the update button in the firmware software updater, make sure its highlighted and un-plug all mice from the system. Then use your keyboard to hit enter to complete the firmware update on the base. If you fail to do so, your base will not update and you will not have a wireless mouse.

    I wouldn't mind a mouse like that if it had a metal casing. Also does it come with a charger yes ? Also how far is its range from the wireless dongle thing.

    If it wasn't wireless, I'd buy. Wireless is crap in my opinion.
