Razer Mamba Gaming Mouse Review

If you were to give me a wireless mouse right now and tell me to use it in one of my gaming sessions, I would respectfully decline (all the while thinking you're a noob.) Its a typical mindset of serious gamers that wireless is equal to weak performance in terms of response times and the ever looming battery is dead problem. This week we have the Razer Mamba to take it for a spin in the Back2Gaming test lab. Razer bills the Mamba as a gaming grade wireless mouse capable of delivering 1ms response both on and off the cord. Razer claims years of research went into this rodent and we'll see today what its really capable of. PACKAGING Words cannot describe what can simply be summarized as the boldest and most praise inducing packaging that is the Mamba’s acrylic glass casing. Resembling Ikea’s Detolf line, the acrylic glass case...

Fresh off our Logitech G510 review, we got a double combo for you guys right here. Today we'll be serving up the Marauder gaming keyboard and Spectre gaming mouse, which just like the Banshee (see review), are designed exclusively for Starcraft II play. So let's get the vespene gas pumping and see what these two devices are made of and as usual, let's make this showy! Just a few weeks ago, Razer sent us the Banshee gaming headset (part of their Starcraft II line of gaming peripherals) for review. I gave high praises for the Banshee due to its great performance with price and its sheer size weighing it down in my ratings. I've also mentioned that I'd be doing a Starcraft II experience review when I get the chance to play around with the three (Marauder, Spectre, Banshee) and looks like we got our wish. Getting right down to...
