Yesterday I recieved my Razer mouse bungee and Abyssus mouse. I figured I'd write a small review about my findings. Here's the products:
The Razer Mouse Bungee
I've wanted one of these for a long time. It is supposed to eliminate all mouse drag, but I was quite disappointed with it. My main finding was this:
It does NOT eliminate mouse drag, it rather distributes it across your mouse movement.
When you move the mouse towards yourself, you will feel the drag of the bungee bending down. When you move the mouse away from yourself, you will feel the drag of the cord pressing up against the end of the bungee.
The good part about this is that you can exactly control the mouse drag by positioning the mouse bungee in a specific way. I have my bungee set up in a way that I do not feel any drag when clicking the minimap (needs to be very precise) and have some downward drag in the top right corner.
Normal mousing without a bungee usually causes drag in an unexpected way, which is why the mouse bungee is useful. I can imagine this tool being especially useful when playing at some place other than your own home, where you cannot setup your trusted method of taping it to a specific spot on your table or whatever.
A plus about this product is that it sticks to the table like glue. It will never move around no matter what you do with your mouse. So that's something you won't have to worry about.
All in all, I am disappointed that it does not completely eliminates mouse drag as advertised, but it is still a useful tool.
+ Provides control over mouse drag
+ Grips to the table perfectly
+ Great design
- Does not completely eliminate mouse drag
The Razer Abyssus mouse
I've only used this mouse for one day now, so I can't really comment on it too much. First impression is positive though.
The first thing I noticed was how LIGHT it was. Compared to my last mouse, the Razer Deathadder, it just moves so easily across my mouse mat.
The mouse buttons are also great. They require little force to press and they sound great.
I'm not yet used to the shape of the mouse. It is quite small, which is great, but since I'm used to a much larger mouse I now need to figure out where exactly to place my fingers to control the mouse optimally. Especially my ring finger feels like it has no place to rest. This is something I will need to get used to.
A minus about this mouse is that it gets dirty easily. Every bit of sweat / grease is visible on the rubber grip, and the glossy black sides attract finger prints like mad.
One more point, the blue LED logo remains lit when I turn off my computer, which is really annoying. I emailed Razer tech support on how to fix this, I'll hopefully hear from them soon.
Those are just first impressions. I am happy with it so far and I think it will serve me well.
+ Light weight
+ Mouse buttons easy to click
- Gets dirty
- LED light that won't turn off
That's it for the review. I'm looking forward to getting used to my gear gaming gear, I think the mouse and bungee will serve me well.
Bonus points if you can recognise my mouse mat
