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.
The Mamba is a wireless gaming-grade mouse that reaches 5,600 dpi of resolution, featuring 1 ms latency and a 1,000 Hz polling rate. The resolution threshold is overkill, but those latter numbers are the real deal: they ensure the gaming crowd that there’s nothing to fear from a wireless mouse in terms of real time response end performance. No communications delays between the peripheral and the PC that will cost somebody’s virtual life in a gaming match. It is just as reliable and precise as a gaming-grade wired mouse. Let’s take a lot about the Mamba before going go the fun stuff.
