IntroductionRazer is one of the leading companies when it comes to gaming peripherals. Their first performance optical mouse was the Razer Diamondback. Last week Razer's updated version of the Diamondback finally hit the market after much anticipation. The new version of the Diamonback is dubbed the 3G referring to its third generation infrared sensor. It's the same sensor that Razer used in their DeathAdder which I had the pleasure of reviewing a while back. The Diamondback 3G features some minor modifications to the shell, it now has a black back plate instead of the original transparent shell. Besides that everything is the same as when the original was launched about two years ago.
One of the things that sets the Razer Diamondback 3G apart from the rest of its siblings is the fact that it's completely symmetrical which means that you can use it with both hands without it feeling awkward.
