The Razer Mamba 2015 edition is an updated version of the original with new RGB lighting, adjustable actuation force of the main buttons, a new sensor and up to 16,000 dpi.
My previous gaming mouse was the Logitech G602 which is wired, so naturally moving over to a wireless alternative there were some worries of battery drainage, precision and interference. With that said, having used the mouse for two weeks non-stop for work and gaming it was obvious how far wireless mice have come. Simple day-to-day tasks were easy and the Mamba felt smooth to use across the surface and precise. Whatever doubts there were, after using the mouse continually, it was obvious that lagging and jolting mouse cursors are a thing of the past.
Razer have nailed the design, with a sleek black body, contours around the left and right buttons with subtle curves, the Mamba is comfortable to use even over extended sessions. Razer have also given the option for gamers to change the force required to press in the two primary mouse buttons, allowing you to adjust between 45 and 95 grams. Razer recommend using the lower settings for games which require a high number of clicks per second, such as MOBA and RTS whilst the heavier settings are more suited to FPS titles.
Testing out how many clicks I could do in 30 seconds on the highest setting saw 211 clicks, when on the lowest it was 223 clicks. Trying this a couple times I saw normally between a 10 – 20 clicks difference between to two actuation forces. This difference may seem small, but PC gamers will appreciate all the edge that their hardware can give them. It is also worth noting, the feeling was different at the two ends of the spectrum, but at 45 grams it was not too light, and at 95 grams it was not too hard. Both extremes on the spectrum were completely useable and really it comes down to personal taste on which settings you will prefer.
