Hello,

Sorry if I posted in the wrong this is my first time using this site. My Razer Imperator 2012 is driving me absolutely mental. It will not work on a mousepad? I have tried Steel Series (other half has the first Imperator and it works great on the mousepad) I try the mousepad with my mouse and boom...nothing cursor instantly becomes unresponsive won't budge at all. I have updated all the drivers/firmware, uninstalled everything and installed over again and I now have a silver Razer Scarab mousepad (read somewhere to try a mousepad that's not black) and same story, cursor instantly won't move

I have emailed Razer and they take so long to respond, so any ideas?

I have a diamondback and two imperators, I use them all on different machines. Never had a problem with the Imperators, the diamondback will sometimes not boot with the system for some reason. I will have to unplug the usb cord and plug it back in once in the OS. Give that a shot, why not.

My imps work well no matter what they're on. A wooden desk, a black mousepad, my lap, pretty much anything besides glass. It sounds like you just got a bad one, is this a new purchase? Can it be returned?

No luck! And no it is not a new purchase, it's about a year old. At this point I am just assuming the mouse is defective and I will have to brave Razer customer service (read some horrible stories about it!). Thanks for the reply.

My imperator stopped working with my soft ulti-mat mousepad once.. but it worked fine with my razer vespula hardpad. It was weird.
Razer surface calibration is sometimes causing some problems indeed, so i don't use it anymore.

These imperators have some weird problems indeed. Friend of mine updated firmware and it bricked the mouse instantly

Oh my god. It works! I was ready to buy a new mouse and contact Razer and everything when all I had to do was turn off calibration. I sat here for a good 2 hours clicking everything Razer I could find, unplugging and uninstalling everything lol, thanks I would have gone out and bought a new mouse tomorrow :S

Pretty sure it's a Phillips Twin-Eye, which honestly, aside from some glaring 'problem's, I never found it to be unpleasant to use. I liked it up until I randomly decided to replace it with a Sensei (I had a Mamba. The original one)

After using the flawed Razer Taipan with the avago, I've grown to love my Mamba. OG and 2012. Very low LOD, tracking is pretty good, and that dynamic DPI scaling isn't all that bad when I play @ 5200 DPI.

The Sensei has the Avago sensor. It took me a while to get use to, to be honest, but it's quite nice. it's actually still not as comfortable to me as the Mamba. If there's one thing Razer does right, it's the damn ergonomics of their devices. Second to none in my opinion. I didn't actually mind the Phillips Twin-Eye, either, to the distaste of many on the forum. I never found myself lifting my mouse often, even though i only ran it at 2000 dpi. I guess it's just the habits of some compared to the habits of others in the end.
