Professional gamers have been getting extremely serious when it comes to their gaming hardware and peripherals as of late. With large worldwide tournaments now being broadcasted globally, it takes not just a powerful team to come ahead, but powerful tools. Razer has been one of the largest gaming manufacturers on the planet and is completely aware of the outcry from the community for consistently superior products. Using the most cutting edge technology they have come out with what some consider as the most powerful gaming mouse on the planet, the Mamba Tournament Edition. Coming in at $130, this mouse packs some serious features and design choices that definitely put it at the top of the market today.
PACKAGING & DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS
The box has a book like structure to it opening up to show you the look of the mouse and a few key details on the lid.
As with all Razer products, the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition comes with a well written instruction manual, two shiny Razer stickers, and a letter welcoming you to the “Cult” of Razer. This is a wired mouse so it attaches to the computer with a seven foot long braided fibre cable. This extra length gives the mouse enough distance just in case you need a couple extra feet.
The mouse wheel is lined with a riveted rubber which makes it easy to use while still having a solid feel. All seven clickable buttons, (not including the dpi up and down which are located between the light up logo and the mouse wheel), are extremely responsive and have a quality feel to them. There is lighting all over this mouse including a small strip running the length of the mouse on the left and right sides. The logo and mouse wheel are also illuminated.
The bottom of the mouse is lined with a next to frictionless coating resulting in the best glide we have ever experienced. One of the best features of the mouse is the grip pads on either side of the mouse for your resting fingers. Unfortunately, the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition is right handed only mouse with no left handed capability as of now. 100MB of hard drive space and an active internet connection are needed to experience the full potential of what the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition can do. Systems that this mouse is compatible on include:
*Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10
*Mac OS X (10.8 – 10.10)
