Mice infestation: 37 gaming mice review

37 gaming mice of 15 brands tested


Razer: Diamondback and Mamba

The fairly small Razer Diamondback has a long history. In the previous decade a predecessor of this model was the first gaming mouse with an optical sensor. In the model that you purchase today we find a 16,000 dpi sensor of the same type. With its 90 gram it is fairly light. In the edge of the mouse we find rgb-lighting that you can control using the software. 

At the MSRP of 94 dollars, the Diamondback is a mouse with excellent performance, a low lift-off distance, high speeds and no acceleration.

The second and last Razer model in this test is the Mamba, a mouse that has also been through several iterations. The wireless nature was unique for a gaming mouse once upon a time. Right now, as we have seen, there is a lot more competition in this category. As with the ASUS mouse, Razer includes a charging station with the Mamba, which is taller and wider than the Diamondback, but exclusively usable for right handed people.

This mouse without tail impresses with the lift-off distance of only 1 millimeter and that speeds are good in most cases, although unfortunately we do register negative acceleration.

Also worth mentioning is that the Razer-mice, in contrast with nearly every other option in the more expensive segment, do not have on-board memory for storing profiles. You have to register and install the Razer-software in order to use multiple profiles. The advantage is that you can log in on every pc and directly access your profiles, but not everyone can appreciate the mandatory registration.
