Razer Mamba Gaming Mouse Review

9.5 Overall Score
Usability: 9/10
Performance: 10/10
Gamability: 10/10

The mouse buttons were on the right side of the mouse

The mouse is for left handed people.

The Razer Mamba is an expensive addition to any gamer’s peripheral collection. But is the price justified? If we look at the mouse by itself, we would have to say no. However, with the quality of material, sans the teflon mouse pads, and choice of hardware used we begin to think that maybe the price is ok. And, if we take into account that the Mamba can be wired or wireless(without loss of response time or signal loss) we can further justify the high price. The packaging used for the Mamba is impressive and definitely adds to the overall cost. The charging dock that is included can be used as a mouse stand even when not using the wireless functionality of the Mamba.

In our testing of the battery life, we found that we had to recharge the battery more than was listed on Razer’s website. Of course we did not go through a 14 hour nonstop gaming session, but we found that 72 hours of normal gaming with no recharge was a stretch. Our testing yeilded around 48-60 hours of casual to hardcore gaming over a three day period. But, in all honesty, being a competitive gamer, you would want the reliability and stability of a wired mouse. It’s a great thing that the Mamba can be used either wired or wireless. As of this writing and since its release date, the Razer Mamba retails for $129.99 on Newegg.
