I remember buying a Razer when I was young. It was a bad idea.
Still using my Black Widows mechanical keyboard. Louder than my damn pc fans at 100%. You get 1 decibel per $ spent.

Every time i see a new fancy expensive mouse, i wonder what the point is...
My fairly decent logitech laser mouse, is failing, the left button is dying, so i replaced it with a inexpensive logitech backup, smaller, harder, lighter, infra red wireless mouse, and it handles borderlands 2 quite good, so much i delayed my plan to buy a logitech 705 comfort (i think that's the model), a very good not to expensive mouse...

So many whistles and bells on this one...
Do games really benefit from all tat??

Not in the slightest. My first mouse was a Sharkoon fireglider, preferred it to my original Deathadder which i bought when it was released and sent it back. Logitech G500 was pretty awesome and still is for its ridiculously low price. I just get high dpi mice and knock them all down ingame. adjustable weights are meh, different profiles for use in game like sniping, i have never and will never use, changing of colours is obsolete because you never even look at your own mouse when you're cowering behind cover with you G3KA6 ready to leap out from a frag grenade, or spamming the hell out of you rmb in hack and slashers. Razer will remain for the silly people with too much money to throw at peripherals, and for epeen purposes only.

It all depends on what you are used to.

I'm still using a Logitech MX518 with original sensor (since I was able to fix it).
I have never used the dpi buttons in a shooter or needed to use the software which came with the mouse.

I have tried a Gigabyte M6900 and found it not to my liking despite being newer.

I have to agree with RCoon about Razer having an image which boasts coolness and must have.
I currently own two Razer products.
A Razer ONZA gamepad and a Goliathus Speed mat.

The mouse mat is of good quality and has actually been a benefit for me in shooters with precision.

The Gamepad on the other hand feeling like an unfinished product.
The ABXY rattle under heavy vibration, the hyper response bumpers flex before the button gets pressed down.
The D-Pad is supposed to be an improvement over the XBOX which it is but still nothing compared to the Playstation controller D-Pad which it was supposed to be more like.

Not in the slightest.
well it's not about the game, it's about the individual.

First off I hate razer - i have bought 2 mice from them and both were disasters. they are cheaply made with a flashy design to sell as quickly as possible. bad lifespan in my experience.
but i also hate using regular mice. My mouse of choice right now is the logitech G700. it has 13 buttons, and i use every one of them. both when gaming and when working. having macros, auto profiles, customizable buttons etc is a must for me when purchasing a mouse.
I can understand a more purist approach - but the first thing that comes to mind is a question - how much time do you spend using that mouse? unless you mouse for 8 or more hours a day we're really talking about different things. I use mine professionally and then also use it to game, so maybe that has something to do with it.

anyway - razer = bad, innovative mice = good. that about sums it up ;)

I used to have a 3.5G Deathadder. Was a decent mouse, but the side buttons started being inconsistent and I never really liked the scroll wheel. A bit surprised they're only updating the DPI settings.

Whatever, my G500 is better anyway. :)

So you bought a cherry blue switch keyboard instead of brown and are surprised about the noise? I'm just trying to understand your complaint.

Funny you write that because my Logitech G9 also failed just after 4 years of use. It was a fantastic mouse, but the left button became unresponsive. I got a really good deal on a G9x so I picked it up (the G9 really was a very comfortable mouse and I really liked it) but honestly, none of the features that make this mouse expensive is something I use. I mean sure it's a good mouse, but the bells and whistles are just there to fill the specs list on the packaging. I think it's more mind over matter.

I bought a Deathadder Black Edition a few months back and I really like it. I am a casual PC gamer so it's really nice and I got it on sale for I think it was $45 at MicroCenter. I was looking at the G500, but I felt that since I could get the Deathadder in 20 minutes and paid less for it I should go for it. So far it's still working like a charm. I really like how the mouse feels in my hand and it has the non slip surface which is nice too.

I don't know about all the high resolution stuff getting put into gaming mouses novadays. Tbh anything over 2000DPI is a waste for normal gaming usage. Even at that resolution ingame sense is almost ridiculously low usually.

+1 to this. too awesome for the low price.
The G9x is a superior mouse to the razer imo, better sensor, dpi matters little nowadays when we have a standard.

I agree, for gaming. In normal desktop usage though, I now hate low dpi. The CM mouse I use is like 8200 and I love it. I went back to my Mamba, which is like 5600 I think, and it feels so much slower.

But as for gaming, I can't use anything over like 3400 max, usually using around 1800

The g9x and G500 use Avago ADNS-9500 sensors. the 9500 has acceleration issues.
went from a G500 to a DA3.5 and would not go back, optical is much better for gaming and have the sensor centered works better.

Razer Deathadder

so they want to make a new verison of it ? but charge +30$ Then Currently Sold Previous model in lot of shop ? the Black Edition's with the higher DPI

but there something essential they should have done while doing so add 2 tiny button for DPI Switch Like On Mamba or Imperator but maybe at different place instead of forcing to sacrefice a 5 button mice for those function

I love to be able to put Crouch's & Double Click on the Mouse's so I can shoot faster those Gun that are Affect by Shoot as fast you're hand can click like in borderland 2 and some FPS

Hold Crouch's Double click few hit : make 4 click worth 8 click :pimp:

how would you rate the Razer Mamba Legacy's Sensor ? to The incoming 6,400 DPI Sensor but i think it the same as Imperator 2.0 & Naga 2.0 & Mamba 2.0 & HEX

Razer makes a habit of releasing "updates" for older products, like the Mamba 2012 edition.

The sensor they use has acceleration issues inherent to the, in my opinion, sensor itself; besides, other products that use the ADNS-9500 have similar issues.

Why Razer insists on using a braided cable is beyond me, but the macro functionality they offer with their mice is alright.
