    Razer, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, is proud to announce the Razer Abyssus Mirror Special Edition gaming mouse. Combining a sleek and simple design with a high performance 3.5G 3500 dpi infrared sensor, the Razer Abyssus Mirror Special Edition features a special edition black chrome mirror finish while maintaining all of the key features of the original Razer Abyssus.

    "The black chrome mirror finish of the Razer Abyssus Mirror Special Edition adds a certain stylistic sensibility to the desktop,” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer USA. “The Razer Abyssus Mirror is designed for gamers that prefer a slick glossy aesthetic finish. It also serves as the ideal complement to other reflective peripherals, such as the Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition keyboard.”

    no extra buttons on the side, No on-the-fly DPI switching. & the front of the mouse looks a little like a Roccat mouse

    this is a 'gaming' mouse but probably more suited to MMO-RPGs & stratagy games like supreme commander n such.

    I class this as a 'not quite gaming' mouse. side buttons come in handy for going back n forth through webpages or windows itself & Ive had side buttons on my mice for too long to go backwards

    to quote myself

    I am wrong about on the fly DPI switching but WTF they put the switch UNDERNEATH the mouse???? so you NEED to physically lift the mouse up & flick a switch/push a button to switch DPI. not what i would call on the fly & IMHO thats even worse then a mouse that has no onthefly switching at all. you need 2 hands to operate this mouse to its full potential. not just one.

    I have an Abyssus and like it, it is a very comfortable feeling mouse..... I don't like buttons on the side because I am prone to accidentally hitting them, a recent habit I developed and the reason I chose that mouse.

    More like melee and grenade buttons for me, but that was the first thing i thought of too. No on top DPI buttons and no side buttons.....FAIL.

    These mirror ed razers are grippy when dry.. and a bit uncomfortable and slippery when things begin to sweat.

    Side buttons own in web browsing. I use them for forward/back buttons while I do my stuff with the other hand :p

    After using the Lycosa for a day or two, that keyboard was dirty and smudgy as could be. These ‘Mirror’ products are a nightmare for someone with OCD!

    I would have to agree.

    I love Razer, but "mirror edition" is a lousy excuse for a new product. I'd like to see some "new" stuff.

    The Deathadder was the first Great Razer product (IMO) then the Naga came out. I don’t really want anything else to blow my mind from Razer! I already have 2 mice and a keyboard don’t need anything else!

    The best mouse from Razer is still the Mamba, and will remain. I have one and i am veeeery happy expensive but is worth all the money.

    DeathAdder, Mamba, and those similar ergo.. they have the best fit and feel. Ima guessing why the stopped the rubberized finish because of the layer rubbing off overtime (my lycosa's fps buttons). Imo, the rubberized finish is more superb.

    If your OCD like me, then you have no problem cleaning your keyboard to make it all shiny again.
