Pros: Feels very ergonomic and it looks nice as well.
Cons: Looks are deceiving, after going through another Razer I was hoping the last was a fluke but the dreaded clicker failure happened. Apparently the RMB and LMB clickers from Razer are bade out of a cheap copper design that will often wear out and result in single clicks which register as doubles and at times a signal failure all together. Given that this mouse failed me after just one year of use I will not be coming back. No need for Razer customer service to respond t...
Summary: Over the last two years I have owned FOUR Razer Imperator mice. In each case the mouse worked great until the one time I reached for it and a received a huge static shock. We're talking BIG spark between finger and mouse. I have no complaints with Razer regarding the support they provided but imagine the disappointment and frustration of trying this same model four times only to have the same problem with each one.
Summary: Well, I looked into lots of mouses before purchasing this (which was a year ago) The mouse is nearly perfect. People complain about the sides being slippery when covered in sweat. I didnt see that. In fact, I almost had no complaints about this mouse, until it just stoped working for no reason. I took good care of it. Never abused it. And it just stops working. Unplugging/plugging it back in solved it a few times at first.
Summary: I was warned upon reading the Amazon reviews, yet thought using this mouse on my PC would be fine as I'm running on a PC built last year with high-end components and Windows 7 64-bit. However, the mouse locked up during operation anyway. At first this occurred constantly, though a BIOS update and change to the Razer Imperator Configurator settings (turning off some auto detect tracking option) improved things so that it only occurred every few minutes (ARRRGGGHHH).
Summary: If I'm buying a gaming mouse, the number 1 thing I need above all else is accurate input. The scroll wheel sometimes registers an up scroll when I'm trying to scroll downwards, which means this mouse is basically useless for gaming now (in theory I should learn to switch weapons with the number buttons, but I'd rather not have my mouse breaking be the reason for it).
Pros: Great pictures on the web site and on the box. Very slick marketing.
Cons: Bought because I believed the hype that it was solid and durable. Died after a year of service for a retiree who used it to write email and surf the web. No better than a cheap mouse. Not worth the price. What is remarkable is the incompetence of the sorry, trifling and shiftless customer service folks. These people make the department of motor vehicles seem first rate.
Summary: I was pleasantly pleased once I received my razer imperator 2012 in February 2012. I liked the ergonomics, it tracked well and I was pleased with the on the fly DPS changes. I had some issues with bumpy tracking but dealt with it. My pleasance was then replaced with pain, when my top button quit working. Also the tracking got worse. It was similar to an old track ball mouse that was dirty. I called razer and they said they would have someone contact me via email.
Summary: Nice mouse... For windows. My Issue is that Razer advertises this mouse to be compatible with Mac OS X when it isn't. After contacting the company, they admit it isn't fully compatible with Mac but refuse to refund the purchase price of the mouse or replace it with their only Mac compatible Wired Mouse, the NAGA. Very dissapointed with this company, going to get a logitech mouse.
Pros: Comfortable Design
Cons: Falsely advertised, Incompatibility with Mac
Summary: This mouse feels great, responsive, accurate - amazing for FPS's but after a couple of weeks everytime my PC boots up I have to tap the mouse on the desk to wake it up! I've had this mouse for just about a year now with the same problem and now it is starting to cut out in the middle of gaming! It'll literally stop... then I'll tap it and it'll work for a bit and then stop. If they make a more reliable mouse like this...
Summary: I bought this mouse a long while ago and have since taken it back. There are reviews all over forums and the internet in general that highlight the same problem with this mouse. After adapting to the shape of the mouse, I did rather like it - the sensitivity of the mouse was brilliant and I made good use of the DPI-adapting [definitely didn't need the 6k DPI, but used stages of 800 to 2400], however after a couple of months, the mouse decided to turn off during games.
