    So if I were sponsored by razer i would have to use their products, start sucking , hurt my reputation, stop using razer and then break the contract with them? [​IMG]


    (not bashing razer here, i just could never get use to my diamondback)

    N'ah, I'm not a fan of the diamond back. The deathadder on the other hand is the only mouse out there to rival my G7.

    Diamondbacks are awesome! I'd love to get my hands on a death adder though, they look pretty spiffy.

    Could not agree more. The Death Adder is a fantastic mouse, but the G7 is just as good I have more trouble deciding which mouse to use than which game to play.

    agreed

    the Death Adder is incredibly smooth and very confortable. It sure beats the habu, which is also nice for the hand and good looking, but with a much inferior sensor

    I love my Death Adder. I want to go to people's houses and plug it into their PCs, within 3 minutes of using it they'll want one. It's lightyears ahead of other gaming mice IMHO.

    Thinking of selling my 'new' Copperhead. PM me if you're interested.

    Not that I want to ruin your sell but the Copperhead was terrible ;)

    Razer's mistake , hehe



    I have to say one thing though ; modern mice are WAY too expensive. It's getting ridiculous !

    It depends on whether your a finger or palm gamer.

    I have to say I'm a little bit confused ! But I have only heard bad things about this mouse, from a lot of people online as well as from a friend of mine who had one. Plus, the Habu, which is basically the same mouse because it has the same mechanic, has a LOT of problems with both the sensor AND the drivers


    However I cannot say if the mouse is good or not once all those problems are fixed and when you get use to the laser sensor

    Therefore, I take back what i said :)


    yes this is also a very big factor. I could never EVER get use to my Diamondback (after 8 months of intensive use) but i will never say this is a bad mouse. The sensor is amazingly precise and fast, but the shape of the mouse made me hold it the wrong way ,which made my overall accuracy to be much lower than usual.

    Now that I am back with a MX518 , I can finally play normally :)
    However I have to say that razer mice are much more solid than logitech's ...... I broke 3 MX510 and one MX518 but my Diamondback still works perfectly on my laptop

    For starters; yes you need drivers and firmware, but then again what doesn't? It's part and parcel of current tech life. The mouse does require a bit more juice and it's recommended to use an externally power USB hub. But it is an excellent mouse. From what I've seen (and more importantly used) Razer products are the dogs balls.

    It's fine i don't mind if I have to update the firmware and the drivers.

    However, for any casual gamer who happen to know nothing about computers, it's not right to have them search the web to find why their damn new 80$ mouse cannot be detected by the drivers even though they followed the instructions perfectly

    This to me, is a good reason to call a product a 'bad one'

    But then again, this was mostly with the Habu, I am not sure the CH has that many problems

    The Copperhead and Deathadder install easily and work extremely well 'out of the box'. Drivers are easy to find on the website and install, firmware is extremely easy to install. The Habu isn't the besy of the Razer products, I think it was the Microsoft involvement that lead them in the wrong direction.

    didn't microsoft only make the design ? The drivers are all razer.. at least that's what they look like.

    I did hear rumours that the Habu wasn't taken as seriously as other some of the other mice (but you know, internet grapevine).
