I just got the email about this from their website. Probably about 40 minutes before ya'll put it up. It sounded and looked retarded so I didnt bother reading it.

I'm not suprised most have never heard of it, it came out in 2001-2002 I believe, I still have one and the tin it came in. Pitty its been beaten to hell and really doesn't work anymore. I don't remember the exact DPI but it was by far the most dpi available at the time for a ball mouse and had extremely nice movement and a very light click. Actually a very nice device for the time. The two versions were I think $75 and $100 dollars.
I think the software that came with it was very straight forward and well done.

"Razer was founded in 1998 by a team of engineers and marketeers in order to develop and market a high end computer gaming mouse, called the Boomslang. It was claimed as the world's first 1000dpi[1] mouse (as opposed to 200 or 400dpi offerings) and purported to give greater accuracy (and potentially, higher scores) to gamers who used it."

1999 came Boomslang 2000 that was 2000dpi. So they were many years ahead of their time. Some reviews are still found via google :)

Thanks OnBoard, Guess it was 2000 not 01-02, I have one of the 1000 DPIs, not the 2000 DPI.

Oi, I still don't see that point of paying so much money for a peripheral that will only last for a few years. $20 is about the limit for me.

It'll be interesting to see if they're going to update the electronics in it to an optical sensor, or go full-bore retro with it & keep it as a ball mouse.
