A couple weeks ago Thomas pointed out to me that Woot was having a sale on RazerÂ mice. I’ve never bought a gaming mouse in my entire life, and there was the Tron Razer Mouse, normally $100-ish, selling for $30. I mentioned it to Chris and he secretly bought it for me! It came last week.
I’ve never seen Tron, either the old one or the new one, but I figured the design was classy enough that it wouldn’t matter. I stand by this – the mouse and packaging are beautiful.
The instant I got this sucker in my paws, it was such a difference. Now I understand why people love Razer’s mice. It is incredibly sensitive – I’ve never had to turn the sensitivity down before. It has 7 buttons that you can map to whatever, but three of them are the usual mouse buttons so you really have 4 to play with. I haven’t found a way to map them to programs, but I’d very much like to. Imagine Skyrim opening at the click of a button! So far I’ve done a bit of gaming with it, mostly Skyrim, and it’s been amazing. It even makes little noises when the computer turns on – cute!
This is a fantastic mouse. I’m not a hardware snob in the least but I can see why people would pay $100 for it. It’s definitely for small hands or for a claw-grip for larger hands. I actually like the petite size though, seeing as my hands are smaller than the average gamer guy’s hands, and it is a beautiful design. Highly recommended!
