Excerpt: When I upgraded to the , I decided it was time to try a new as well. Just like keyboards, I have accepted the fact that there is no such thing as the perfect mouse. However, at $129, I thought the Razer Mamba might come close, so I gave it a try.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is When I look at the small ’4G’ sticker on the new Mamba’s award-like case, I am instantly reminded of those detergent adverts which claim their product has been “new & improved”. I then comically quiz out loud: if the product is ‘new’, then how is it ‘improved’?
Summary: With great ergonomics, decent weight to battery life ratio, dual wireless/wired abilities and other great features; the all new and improved Mamba is everything the original was and then some.
Pros: Comfortable yet elegant design, Wireless or Wired options, Compact USB transceiver, Great ergonomics, Refined and user friendly software, Wireless mode works just as good as wired, Battery can be charged while still in the mouse (just plug in the USB cable)
Cons: Right hand only model (lefties need not apply), No weight customization, Only one USB cable included, Slow and cumbersome to change from wireless to wired mode, Battery while better than original is still only good for up to 16 hours, Software needs work as it does crash from time to time

Excerpt: There’s really nothing worse than an otherwise wonderful product with one fatal flaw that brings its whole score down. The Razer Mamba is a wonderful wireless gaming mouse, with an absolutely devastating power problem.
Pros: Amazing sensor, great shape, wired option.
Cons: Fiddy USB connector, anemic battery, super-chunky USB cable.
Excerpt: We never comment on a product’s packaging due to the golden rule of never judging a book by its cover. However, the Razer Mamba deserves a justified breach of protocol because of its awe-inspiring package: it comes in a Plexiglas box that seems like a work of art being displayed in a museum.
Conclusion: It would be fair to say that most people that are into to technology are also attracted by the elusive . Ultra slim high resolution displays, watercooled PCs with acrylic windows to show off beautifully modded interiors and iPhones all stir the blood in this way. To this extent the Mamba is awesome.
