Many gamers avoid wireless mice due to concerns over battery life and latency – we put these concerns to the test when we visited Logitech last year in Switzerland. Razer are another company who believe it is time we change our mindset and give wireless mice some serious consideration.
Today we look at the new Razer Mamba wireless gaming mouse. It features a laser sensor with an insanely high DPI rating of up to 16,000. It has RGB lighting support and wireless or wired connectivity options with a proprietary charging dock.

It is worth mentioning that we previously reviewed the wired version of this mouse, the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition. This mouse scored highly, so the fact that this new model has extra features such as adjustable click force and wireless capabilities is promising.
Razer claim that this is “The most advanced wireless gaming mouse ever,” and you can see why. It has an extensive feature list and very high levels of customisation, letting you control everything from the colour of the lighting, to the lift-off height and the click strength.
While we will of course test the veracity of those statements and the usefulness of these features, the big question will always be: is it worth the money? More importantly, is it worth your money.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xr3fdcpag1I’]
