Play any RTS recently? Low Sensitivity player? Large Mousepad? No need to reposition the mouse?

Now I urge you, do you still have a regular mouse lying around? Perform the same "test" with that mouse. :3

Bought a Copperhead 5 years ago as my first mouse and I won't use anything else as long as they still sell them. I will say their mouse designs got worst over time. I probably won't buy any of their current models.

I reposition all the time. I play SCII, I run with 1800 dpi with CoD4 and around 4800 with SCII. I don't think its been that big of an issue for me personally? O:
Either way, it doesn't affect me very much. Can't say much for others though

Krait, Mamba, Abyssus, Salmosa Mini.

I got them for cheap, so I don't really care about their flaws.

Imagine the situation. You somehow manage to get your mouse to get stuck on your keyboard with the cursor just at the middle of the screen, and you need to select a unit before it dies, but it's so far away, and you know you'll never make it without lifting and repositioning your mouse.

Your eye's trained on the cursor as you lift the mouse, what happens next? The cursor drops out of screen, (you have 4800DPI), you fail to select the unit, and he suffers a fate of getting gangbanged by zerglings.

Hmm. Sure, old school, but. It's an issue which Razer touts as a feature as written in their e-mail response.

"Any mouse will cause the cursor to move when you lift it off the mouse pad. The Mamba does it in a more predictable fashion, always down and to the right. With higher DPI setting you will notice the affect more, but of course the higher the setting the less likely you are to lift the mouse. You should be able to lessen the affect you are seeing by using a lower DPI setting."

And I have shown that a Storm Sentinel and has been reported the same with the Cyborg RAT series, which all the same Sensor equipped has it. Should CM be paying Razer rights for this feature? It seems they're likely to make money from patenting this cursor dropoff.

Using a Mamba here and I have so many complaints i wont even start here.

Anyone lived through the firmware issues when the Mamba came out at firts? Your mouse stops working on you for 20 seconds out of nowhere... And it lasted for about a month untill they finally manage to get a new firmware out. Mind you, the first solid firmware for mamba i was happy about came about 4 months after i bought the mouse, which is unacceptable.

There is no return policy here in slovakia, I payed pretty insane money for it, and I must say I will never buy another Razer product again.

LOVE my Orochi for my laptop. And the MS/Razer Habu/Reclusa are simply awesome. I'll always use Razer. I've used Logitech for many years as well, and none of there stuff has ever lasted me more than 1 year. Their G7 lasted me all of 3 months... After 5 replacements I called it quits. However I love their speakers, the Z-2300's are freakin sweet.
