Razer Imperator Offers Comfort, Customization For All Right-Handers

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.”

High DPI isn´t bad, I like when I can turn game senstivity to really low, and boost mouse sensitvity to really high.

I play with 3200 DPi and when I had Lachesis, I used 4000 DPi (or whatever it has). It was fine, well except all those issues I had.. and sold it before those new good FW camed up.

I think that 5k+ is still pretty much usable.. tough, it will depend also on resolution used.

About left handed, not sure how you, but I know few ppl and all learned to use right hand.. friend doesn´t have problem with that and hes quite skilled in FPS..

Ofc it would be much better, if there were at least one gaming mouse designed purely for left handed, I think it could actually sell pretty well..
Joysticks i can when i used to play mech warrior with joystick mouse keyboard lol.

Kinda been spoiled with the Diamondback as it has buttons on both side and use 3 of the 4 of them so just right handed mouse would not have a enough buttons on it nor in the right place's.

Been gaming since the ZX81 and with a mouse 89 so kinda stuck on me and anyways got sick of schools trying to make me use my right hand more against my will but thats another story :P.
