Razer cords become faulty quickly at connection-point to mouse. 2nd model with this issue.

Adrian C. Pearce, Amazon
25 December 2014
  • Summary: This is my 2nd razer mouse. Love the look, feel, and performance. However, this is the 2nd that has the cord connection to the mouse become faulty not long after purchase (the most recent of which, this one, happened after only TWO months of use).

Poor Build Quality

Hamilton k., Newegg
9 September 2014
  • Summary: I really want the mice to be good. They look great, feel good in the hand, and perform solidly in games, but unfortunately they are just cheaply made. They do not stand up to regular usage and customer support has taken over a week to finally contact me and suggested I try a different...
  • Pros: Smooth feel, Sleek Finish, great in game accuracy......when it works.
  • Cons: I have owned 3 of these mice, and they all have failed, 2 for the same reason. The first one I owned the buttons stopped responding. The second 2 have had the cable go out . I opened the second one up, re-soldered the cable and then it worked again for about a month. Now, after a little over a ye...

2012 version doesn't work on hard surfaces

christopher h., Newegg
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I don't think i would buy another Razer product again. They should mention somewhere that it only works on cloth pads. My warranty is out so i can do nothing.
  • Pros: I've had this mouse for two years and it has done me well. I've worn out my Razer Goliathus mouse pad completely out and it is falling apart. I had to order a new mouse pad since then only to find that it does not work on hard surfaces or hard mousepads.
  • Cons: I recently invested 40$ into a new mouse pad that i cannot use. I tried everything to remedy the issue, firmware update 1.16. Synapse 2.0 (which has the surface changing configuration) does not work for 2012. The default Razer drivers do not offer you an option to change the surface distance. It ...

Accidental double clicks, no response

Oc3an, Amazon
21 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought it on november 2012 (BF3 edition). In less than 6 months, the mouse began double clicking when I was only clicking once. I was outside the USA so RMA was not an option. I had to google the problem and found how to fix this and it involved opening the mouse, taking out a very small spring...

Fool me twice...

Andrew S., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • 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 an...

Fragile Design Won't Survive Static Shock

veryhappyguy, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • 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.

Dead in three weeks.

Erik L., Newegg
4 September 2013
  • Summary: Three weeks to the day after I purchased it. The mouse spontaneously died. I came home from work, woke up my computer, and the imperator didn't light up. Long story short DEAD.
  • Pros: Worked
  • Cons: Not for long.

Terrible Mouse & Terrible Company

mcG3ABQ, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: This review is for the previous generation Imperator, so it may not apply specifically, but I still consider it relevant. The mouse is great, until it isn't. Several Razer mice are plagued by the dreaded "double-click issue", check google. (single click registers as a double click, ack!).

Died.

Jon, Amazon
23 June 2013
  • 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.

Destined to Fail

WILLIAM T., Newegg
31 May 2013
  • Pros: Looks neat. Pretty blue lights look fairly slick.
  • Cons: Initially very uncomfortable compared to my 5+ year old Razer Copperhead I was gifted to replace. The buttons had a very springy quality and the coating material overall felt "sticky". After about 8 months or so, it failed miserably. The entire series (and similar models) as well as select models...
