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. Like other Razer products, the Mamba's packaging is simply over-the-top. The mouse is displayed in a clear plastic container, much like a glass case used to showcase expensive jewelry.
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’? Que inside loll’ing.
Conclusion: Razer delivers on the performance and it is pleasing to feel the response time wirelessly with absolutely no lag. Being on the cutting edge, however, does come at a price of a $130. As far as the quality of the Razer Mamba, the mouse feels weighty and solid and is easily gripped with it’s smooth rubberized coating.
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: The Razer Mamba, named after the deadly Black Mamba snake, is an expensive gaming mouse. Being the top dog from Razer carries a hefty price tag, $129.99 at most online and instore shops. Although expensive, the Mamba is top quality where material and construction are concerned. Very little information can be found on who actually makes the laser sensor used in the Mamba. We do know that it is referred to as the 5600DPI Razer Precision™ 3.5G Laser sensor.
Pros: The mouse buttons were on the right side of the mouse
Conclusion: The new version of the Razer Mamba mouse has the software and hardware to satisfy the needs of any FPS enthusiast.
Pros: Nine customizable buttons and functions. Supports up to five profiles, which can load automatically when programs launch. Works with Windows and Mac computers. Can be used with or without wire. Batteries are rechargeable. Attractive design.
Cons: May lose tracking if you switch mousing surfaces. Long software load times. Designed only for right-handed users.
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. For the Mamba, Razer tweaked the kick-ass shape of the now-classic DeathAdder design—perfect for palm-grip mousers—to sneak in a pair of sensitivity adjustment buttons.
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. The mouse appears to float as it stands on a plastic pedestal. The base features three cleverly hidden cardbox shelves that store the USB cable, battery and the charging unit.
