The Genre is Not the Limit

The thing that always defined the Mamba series was just how extremely versatile it was for the line of products that was never really the middle-of-the-road kind but actually managed to excel in the majority of aspects that make a gaming mouse what it is. With that in mind, it is time to meet Razer Mamba Tournament Edition, the latest iteration of the Mamba series that adheres to the same philosophy of delivering exceptional versatility and performance for the widest variety of gamers possible.

In order to ensure the latter, there are a few things that the manufacturers had to do right to avoid falling short of customers' expectations. The first thing is the number of independently programmable buttons. Where the DeathAdder line features no more than 7, a number that will be perfect for FPS and MOBAs but will not satisfy the fans of hardcore role-playing games, and the Naga series usually incorporates up to 20 of them, which is something that the fans of the MMORPG will surely appreciate but the aficionados of action games and shooters might find distracting, this Razer Chroma mouse solves that issue by featuring nine programmable buttons. Suffice it to say, this is a number that will be more than suitable both for the FPS enthusiasts and the MMORPG crowd.

Aside from this sort of versatility that stems from the number of programmable buttons, the people behind this model also had to make sure that it will be able to fit the majority of gamers' hands. And, without beating too much around the bush, they have been able to do just that, implementing a form that is designed for natural hand position. Thanks to this incredibly important solution, this ergonomic gaming mouse will be able to reduce stress on your fingers that will surely build up after hours of intense gaming sessions, not to mention eliminating all of the unnecessary finger drag points. Other than that, there really isn't that much to say about this product that you wouldn't expect out of a high-end Razer mouse, like an exceptionally accurate sensor, plenty of customisation options with Razer Synapse, and the iconic RGB lighting.

To put it differently, the Razer RZ01-01370100-R3, also known as the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition, will easily prove to be the best Razer mouse for people that don't just play a single genre over and over and prefer to experience all kinds of beautiful and exciting virtual worlds with their own unique demands.

Still Got It

A lot of companies have claimed in the past that their mouse is the fastest, most accurate mouse on the market. But very few could back up their claims with the same amount of honesty and confidence as Razer can with their newest iteration of the DeathAdder line. The Deathadder Elite is packing the most advanced optical sensor in the market, and that translates to literally unprecedented accuracy in a mouse. When it comes to DPI, there are already a few gaming mice out there that feature a whopping 16000 DPI optical sensor, but Razer has also boosted the IPS to 450, and the mouse also can handle a 50G acceleration. If all these terms seem confusing to you, what it essentially boils down to is that the Deathadder Elite has a resolution accuracy of a 99.4 percent which makes it the most accurate mouse on the gaming peripheral scene.

There have been very few structural changes over the years when it comes to the DeathAdder model since they have long reached the point where meddling with it would only produce negative results and this model is no exception. Perfectly designed to fit under your palm, the ergonomic shape of the Razer DeathAdder Elite provides gamers with some of the most comfortable gaming experience ever, especially during the most intense moments when the stakes are the highest. Together with two rubber side grips, you’ll always have complete control of your gameplay.

Of course, the new DeathAdder is no slouch when it comes to durability and functionality either. The gaming optimized mechanical switches are said to be able to withstand up to 50 million clicks. There are 7 independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons that you will be able to control through the usual Razer Synapse software. The Razer Chroma customisable lighting allows you to choose from the full spectrum of 16.8 million colours and custom effects to personalize your Razer DeathAdder Elite. In conclusion, if you take your gaming experience seriously and want only the most accurate, functional and reliable weapons in your arsenal, the Razer DeathAdder Elite is the kind of mouse you simply cannot afford to miss.

Dominate Your MMORPG Enemies

There aren't a whole lot of gamers out there that would require an introduction to the Naga series and that is especially the case for those individuals that have spent thousands of hours on World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, TERA, or any other MMORPG out there. And when it comes to the aforementioned genre, this line has virtually become synonymous with the latter, and there's no particular secret as to how they have been able to accomplish such a feat.

On the contrary, the reason behind this success is fairly simple - in addition to the company's already renowned quality in every other aspect, this Razer Naga mouse continues the tradition of this series by incorporating a whopping number of 19 fully programmable buttons. As you would imagine, this sort of feature will give you virtually instantaneous access to more than a dozen of macro options, essentially offering you the sort of advantage over your online opponents that will make them want to grab a mouse like that for themselves after you repeatedly defeat their character. Furthermore, all of these buttons give off a clear tactile feel, so despite the overwhelming number, there's little to no chance you're going to experience the unpleasant feeling of a misclick. And if you think that's all the mouse has to offer in terms of ensuring a truly comfortable gaming experience, you might want to think twice since the model also comes equipped with zero-acoustic ultraslick mouse feet, which is a welcome and impressive feature if you take into account the product's weight and the number of buttons it has to drag.

The laser sensor is nothing to scoff at either, offering an already synonymous with their products 16000 DPI that will ensure exceptional accuracy and a 50-gram acceleration that anyone who plays with a low sensitivity setting will be able to appreciate. All in all, there really isn't that much to say about this programmable gaming mouse other than you should already own one of these if you're a fan of the MMORPG genre and would like to receive a competitive edge over your online opponents. And if you don't care for the latter genre but prefer to have an array of macros under your hand, there's really no reason not to give this iteration of Naga series a whirl.

Gaming Isn't Always Expensive

The majority of people associate Razer with outlandish gaming peripherals that deliver in terms of quality, durability, and design but require you to spend a pretty penny in order to experience all of the benefits of their products. And, for better or worse, this is a reputation that is well-deserved, but that doesn't mean the company simply does not care about those customers that cannot afford to pay an extra price for a piece of gaming equipment. And if you want a good example of that, just look no further than the Razer Abyssus V2.

What we have here is a really affordable Razer gaming mouse that, nonetheless, is capable of offering quite a variety of features and impressive characteristics to its customers. One of them, of course, is the ambidextrous design of this product. Combine that with a pair of in-mould rubber side grips and what you're left with is a mouse that will perfectly fit the hand of just about any left- or right-handed user out there. Now, there are no buttons on the side, but all of the essential ones support virtually endless customisation options with Razer synapse, and that ought to be enough for most gamers that do not particularly care for an array of macros. And even though this ergonomic mouse does not incorporate the RGB lighting system, it does feature a 3-colour lighting on the logo, the wheel, and around the sensor.

Speaking of the wheel, the manufacturers made sure to implement a gaming-grade tactile scroll, which is great both for working and for genres like RTS and FPS. Finally, the model decided to take a page out of the more expensive Razer gaming mice's book and incorporate the on-the-fly adjustment sensitivity feature, which is a really great option for those who can't figure out the most optimal sens for themselves.

All things considered, this Razer ambidextrous mouse will easily prove to be a perfect fit for those people that would like to take their game to the next level with the sort of precision and comfort that only a gaming mouse could offer but aren't willing to pay a pretty penny for it.

Make a Statement

Some people may feel somewhat ashamed to admit it, especially given that the cornerstone of gaming as a hobby, pastime activity, or even a way of life has always been the performance that stands above everything else, but any gaming peripheral has also always been about the looks just as much as it's about the former. And there's nothing particularly wrong about that. While gaming may be an incredibly demanding activity, it is also about expression and assertion just as much as it is about skill and performance. And when you talk about expression, you know that Razer always has you covered, this time introducing the Razer DeathAdder Chroma Call of Duty Black Ops III Ergonomic Gaming Mouse.

As the name suggests, the most prominent feature of this peripheral is the paint job. To be a bit more specific, a paint job that features a Call of Duty Black Ops III logo around the lower half of the mouse and an intimidating skeleton sprayed all over the upper half. As you would imagine, this sort of look will more than come to the liking of fans of one of the best selling FPS franchises of all time. But if you do not particularly care about Call of Duty or even shooters in general, you will still be able to appreciate the sort of attention to details the manufacturers have put into their work and the way it'll make your mouse stand out from the unremarkable crowd.

Setting the paint job aside, what we have here is your typical Razer DeathAdder Chroma, a mouse that has become iconic in the world of action games and MOBAs. With it, you get your standard 5 independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons, two of them conveniently placed around your thumb. You also get a tested and reliable optical sensor with 10000 DPI, 200 IPS, and 50 g acceleration. The countless customisation options with Razer Synapse, the on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment, a zero-acoustic ultraslick mouse foot, and the RGB lighting, you know the drill.

To sum this whole thing up, the Razer DeathAdder Chroma Call of Duty Black Ops III Ergonomic Gaming Mouse is something you should get if you truly care about the looks and would like your mouse to make a statement for you every time someone lays their eyes on it. You should definitely get it if you're a fan of the eponymous franchise. Other than that, you might want to consider acquiring it if you like the DeathAdder series and your old model finally decided to meet its maker.

What Is a Razer Mouse?

Though some of the biggest and most loyal customers of the company may be able to disagree but any Razer gaming mouse isn't all that different from a regular gaming mouse. And the difference between the latter and a non-gaming one that people buy for their offices usually lies in a few key characteristics. A gaming mouse usually features a set of additional programmable buttons that most people won't be able to find any use for but any gamer will surely appreciate the additional possibilities it opens up in his favourite titles. The sensor also usually features a much higher number of Dots Per Inch, meaning that your Razer model, as well as your average high-end gaming peripheral, will prove to be much more responsive compared to a regular device. Finally, what sets the Razer computer mouse apart from other gaming mice out there is the exceptional design that makes any other gaming model pale in comparison and certain extra features like the ability to access Razer Synapse, a cloud-based software that will allow you to customize your mouse according to your needs and preferences.

Now, if you've already got yourself a Razer mouse, it is time to complete the set by purchasing a keyboard from the same company or a gaming headset so that you'll always be able to hear your opponents trying to sneak up on you.
