The Razer Diamondback is an infrared mouse that is sure to enhance your gaming skills. Its grip-friendly appearance is one of the best things about this mouse. Whether you’re comfortable with your hands flat around the surface or just gripping it in a claw fashion, the mouse isn’t really that picky when it come to the user’s grip. It still lets you feel like you’re in command without the discomforts of feeling odd when using a different grip fashion.
The 1800 dpi precision sensor is awesome for high resolution gameplay, with an easily adjustable sensitivity option that lets you take control further. The mouse has 7 programmable buttons that are separated by profiles. Since the Razer mouse saves these settings on its onboard (or should I say onmouse) memory, you can switch profiles in order to suit your preferred gameplay. In my opinion, the infrared sensor is more practical than the laser ones due to its oversensitive sensor that makes your mouse jerk around over slight movements such as bass rumbling. The mouse also provides the user with 55% less movement on the player’s side in order for the mouse to issue your desired command/movement. It means that you’re most likely going to be at ease when executing certain jerks for the mouse to move.
The Razer Diamondback lets you scroll around the screen in a smooth fashion. Gliding across the screen as a body-like extension does feel satisfying. All the buttons including the mouse wheel are all nicely positioned on the mouse. The mousewheel is also much bigger than the average mouse, making it easier to find (trigger) on certain occasions.
This mouse is currently being used in WCG (World Cyber Games) for maximum efficiency when it comes to playing RTS (real time strategy), FPS (first person shooters) and even on MMO tournaments in other events. Play like a pro! Own like a pro! Get one, and gain that unfair advantage. If they mutter around about the match not being a fair fight, then sucks for them cause they dont have it.
