Conclusion: We aren’t impressed by the Razer Abyssus. Thumb buttons are the default forwards and backwards buttons when browsing the Internet, and they’re useful for melee attacks and various other in-game controls; as such, they were sorely missed. Worse still are the Abyssus’ gimmicky extras.
Summary: The Razer Abyssus is an interesting attempt at making a budget gaming mouse with an ambidextrous design. Sensor wise the mouse is very well equipped and the 3500 DPI infrared sensor performs flawlessly on most of the gaming surfaces around except for the ancient SteelSeries QcK according to some...
Pros: Great for small hands, Great tracking for the price, Well built, Ambidextrous, Flawless tracking on decent mouse pads
Cons: Small, Only three buttons, Not the most comfortable design, Not really all that cheap
Summary: While MMO gamers and some RTS players that utilise macros for quick unit builds may find the Abyssus a step backwards in Razer’s lineup of gaming peripherals, I found the sleek design and feature list quite refreshing.
Excerpt: With most mice in the gaming sector having very funny designs and far too many buttons, does this no-nonsense mouse still stand a chance in the gaming market? Packaging & Contents The packaging that this mouse arrived in is very nice as far as packaging goes.
Conclusion: We found the Abyssus to be a deadly accurate gaming Mouse and the 3 button design kept us focused on what we were doing in game without having to think about what each of 9 buttons does. Movements were swift, key clicks were fast and required minimal effort.
Conclusion: This is an interesting mouse to have reviewed, because MMO and macro heavy gamers may consider it a step backwards. Me though, I like the pandering to claw grip gamers, and the sleek grass roots design. It’s a mouse that does what it’s supposed to do, and does it well.
Pros: Highly sensitive, Very accurate, Looks great, Streamlined design
Cons: Some may not like the extra cost, Perfect for small hands, not so great for meat fists
Razer Abyssus Review: Alights onto the Scene with Blazing Glory
29 April 2010
Summary: The only downside to the Abyssus mouse was that the buttons were located on the under belly of the mouse which we found a bit inaccessible while needing to quickly change the preferences during gameplay. Other than that, the simple plug-and-play device didn’t have any hassles along for the ride.
