Razer Imperator

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Just bought the 2012 edition of this, brand new from eBay for £35.

Is it good?

I'm a righty, play a lot of FPS games etc...

Atm there is a HUGE debate right now that razor is lying to its customers and is putting in a DRM into its driver software. But for price lets say the pound is worth what $1.70 so 35x $1.70= $59.50 for a razor 2012. retail price is $64.99. So you saved 2 or 3 pounds. Plus whatever you had to pay for shipping. You got it for retail price.

Edit: upper area posted wrong links and price.


OCN take on the razor issue.

Unfortunately i had to take my imperator back to pc world today because of 4 months of complete frustration! When starting up my pc had to take the mouse out of the usb port and move it to another to get it to work, intermitent stuttering, lights sometimes flashed on and off! Shame really because i liked the look and feel of the mouse!
Hope you have better luck! thumb.gif

I used to have an Imperator (not the 2012 model). It was incredibly comfortable, probably the most comfortable mouse I've ever used. Unfortunately the build quality turned out to be less than stellar, which seems to be a common complaint about Razer products. I replaced it with a Corsair M60 and never looked back.

OCN take on the razor issue. I'll add the second link here as soon as I find it.

£35 is about $55 according to Google. So I saved $10, that's great biggrin.gif
Peripherals are pricier over here than in the US.

Sorry to sound like an idiot but could you explain DRM in a little more depth.
I know what it is, but how would that affect me and the use of my new toy?

Many thanks smile.gif
