Ok. Just when you thought the Razer Diamondback was a kick *** gaming mouse, how could it get any better? I mean seriously. Well, razer hasn't stopped designing it's killer high performance mice. And it will soon launch it's new beast. The Copperhead.

2000 DPI.... Can you say sensitive?

I love watching people use my mouse "Razer Diamondback" with sensitivity set to 8.5. LOL - I just sit there and laugh when people try to open up like firefox or something... The cursor flys all over the place and they can never seem to find it. (Due to the fact that they are so used to there mouse which sucks and the cursor moves like a freakin snail, so they use large gestures to move the mouse). But, i've become used to the sensitivity of my mouse and just a tiny little nudge will do the trick... which is awesome in FPS games because you don't need move the mouse too much and it speeds up responce time like 10 fold... Less then 20 degree turns will turn your character 180 degrees around... It's aweome...

But, this new mouse has tons of other new features as well... I'd say it will be like $79.99 something like that.... It better come with leather carrying case and game or something...

The razer diamondback had one major weakness, asthetics. Both the logitech MX-XXX series and Microsoft Intellimice are alot more comfortable.

The diamondback's lead to parts of your hands dragging, as well as the extra buttons are hard to ascess, since the mouse is built for both right and left handed people.

Yeah, I have had several chances to test various Razor mice out, and while they were inovative and neat...I had an instant feeling that they would not last long with me. For one, I've got large hands, so little flat mice are a pain. Second, the side buttons were so close to the pad that my thumb was scratching hand-cheese the whole time.

These specialty companies should recognize that different people come in different sizes. They should have like a Small, Medium, and Large version of their products.

well, i don't have monsterous size hands so it's very comfortable for me. I haven't experienced much, "hand dragging". But, I guess for someone with large hands it would be a serious issue.

ROFLMAO....
Feeling creative today are we shoobie? By the way where have you been have seen you post in awhile...

I think making a mouse in a large size would make a lot of sense. For you sasquatchian TF members.

But if they made a large mouse, wouldn't that have to change the name of it? May-be it would be called a RAT?

??? I've been posting.
I had to take a hiatus from everything for a number of days a bit back on account of my GF, but other than that, I've been here. Why? Are you stalking me?

I'm the biggest guy in the office, but there's this guy working for another company that happens to be in the same building...he used to be a linebacker...it's scary...I didn't know people could have neck-biceps!

ROFL, maybe so. There's already a Ratzpad high-performance mouse pad (which I use). Makes sense to have a "rat" input device for it.
