Razer Mamba 16,000 DPI Gaming Mouse Review

Introduction


Razer, one of the biggest and most recognisable gaming brands on the market, are back once again with their latest version of the popular Mamba mouse. The Mamba comes equipped with a range of extreme features that are said to put it far above the competition, making it ideal for competitive gaming, but also just as versatile for day-to-day at home use and work.

“Boasting the world’s most precise 16,000 DPI gaming mouse sensor, the Razer Mamba provides you with unsurpassable accuracy, so you’ll have an even greater edge over your competition. With its ability to track 1 DPI increments and a lift-off cut-off distance as precise as 0.1 mm, the Razer Mamba helps you to react instantly while you skillfully maneuver your way to victory.”

The 16,000 DPI sensor is going to provide some interesting benefits for gaming, as you’ll be able to swap DPI and quickly navigate even the largest RTS/MOBA maps with extreme precision. Being able to tune in your own DPI settings in 1DPI increments is also pretty special, as it frees you from the constraints of some mice, which only allow you to pick various levels, such as 200/400/800/1600/etc. Not content with a fully customizable sensor, the mouse buttons can also be tuned using an included tool, allowing you to pick from a lighter response, or a more distinctive click, and everything in-between.

Still not enough features? How about extensive RGB lighting customisation, or the choice to switch between wireless and wired modes with a 1ms response time? Plus the cable means you can use it in wireless mode, but continue using it while it is changing, so there’s no excuse to stop playing.

The packaging is nice and simple, with a great image of the Mamba on the front, as well as a few specs on the side detailing the adjustable switches and the charging system.

Around the back, an image showing off the charging dock, which also comes with RGB lighting effects.

The box opens out to reveal a quote from Razer, as well as a steel tin presentation box.

The box is the perfect safe house for the Mamba, helping you protect your investment when ever you need to store the mouse between uses.

In the box, you’ll find the usual documentation, the charging dock, a black braided cable and, of course, the Mamba mouse.
