Lastly, I'm assuming that the charging dock on the Mamba acts as the USB receiver for the wireless option?


Yep the dock is receiver for the wireless option.

As for battery i had mine for little over a year and the battery still lasts as when i bought it so not really sure whats the life span on it is im sure a couple years or so, My mx1000 which i got in 2003 the battery still works but its really weak.


For battery replacement yep seems like they do have replacements for it so thats good [ame="http://www.amazon.com/900Mah-Lithium-Battery-Mamba-Wireless/dp/B002MPOU5C"]Amazon.com: 900Mah Lithium Battery For RAZER Mamba Gaming Wireless Mouse Part: FT703437PP, RZ03-00120100-0000 , Model : RC03-001201: Electronics[/ame]

But wish it used the same battery type the g700 has sense the battery's are way cheaper and easy too find lol

Yep the g700 is a nice and flexible mouse:) Oh and Logitech has the best scroll wheel on there mice which the g700 has the hyper scroll wheel which is nice. And there setpoint software is better too me much easlyer more customizable it seems.

Thanks a lot for your finding this out. Made this a lot easier. I've looked at quite a bit of reviews on YouTube but they're a hit or miss on being informative. Mostly miss. OCN is a great place to find out from people who actually know and love their computers.

On the battery link I noticed this "No memory effect. Can be charged or discharged as needed without loss of capacity. "

When charging the Maba I'd imagine it's imperative to leave the first charge on until full potential before first use. How long is the first charge take before it's reached full capacity? Secondly, once cahrged to full capacity, does it matter after that if you don't? It wouldn't reset itself or lessen it's full potential right?

Lastly, Does it have to be turned off to charge?

I own a Mamba. My mouse feet are wearing down quite a bit after a year and a half and I will be ordering replacements soon. My only gripe has been the squeeking noise the mouse wheel makes on some Mambas. I fixed it by remove the top cover and applying a little silicon grease to the plastic contacts, it was a rather simple solution.

All in all, its a fine mouse. I really enjoy the on-the-fly dpi adjustment and the tracking seems best around 1500-3000 dpi for me. I paid full price a few years ago, so I suppose my only advice if you chose the Mamba would be that you purchase it around $90 or less new.

All rechargables will have a lifespan, Im not sure exactly how much but maybe in a span if 2-3yrs the battery will start to degrade you can purchase a replacement battery for $19.99 I believe.

Yes the dock is also the receiver.

Id also like to add if your the type of person that would want the least force required to click the Mamba requires about 50% less force to click compared to the G700 and the G9 requires far lesser force compared to the Mamba.

IMO the mamba is the way to go. ive had mine for about a week and so far its great. coming from a logitech mx revolution i needed something wireless and rechargeable with decent ergonomics and battery life. so far the mamba hasnt yielded a hand cramp yet. i have no issues with battery life at all. ive never used a mouse with dpi buttons...i gotta say they are awesome for fps games. i actually prefer to lower the res when playing so im not all over the place, and sink it right down to almost nothing when sniping. there is a real shortage of decent rechargeable mice. i tried the rat9 and my hand couldnt take the crappy ergonomics. My vote is definitely for the Mamba.

Well, I made my choice and came home with a Razer Mamba tonight. Charging at the moment on the dock. Going to give it 5 hrs for my first charge.

Thanks for all those who helped me with questions. This was my first major gaming mice purchase. A lot of first for me on this rig.

I got to admit I almost went Logitech G700 it's a really good mouse. The only reason I didn't was to complete the set up I started with my Razer keyboard. I also gave the Razer Imperator a hard look for $70 less was very tempting but the wireless solution won it over for me. Albeit at quite a steep price, in the long run will be worth it.

I'm going to down load the software drivers from Razer and install it later tonight after it's fully charged. I read when I first set up I should do it on the wire before going wireless.

The Razer Anansi keyboard and Razer Mamba make a nice combo on my desktop.

Thanks for everyone's input. OCN has a great bunch of people who know their stuff.

Generally, I've found any configuration using the Razer utility while it is wireless is a rather slow process (around 30 secs while applying settings). It is mandatory that you have the mouse in wired mode for firmware updates.

Personally, I don't have the Razer utility load on startup. All of the settings get saved into the Synapse memory on the mouse anyway. I only load the utility to setup my custom dpi(s), polling rate, and lighting options.

Anyhow, have fun!
