Question

Posted

Finally i decided to replace my fully (sort of) working Razer Mamba 2012. God i don't know how i was able to endure Synapse for so long. I just bought a Logitech g602 and so far i'm happy with it. Technically it's not as good as the Mamba or g700 but unlike the Mamba the software actually works and unlike the g700 it's actually wireless (seriously having to plug the mouse in an usb port every ******* day makes the g700 a wired mouse). I still prefer the shape of the Mamba by a long shot but at the very least the g602 is a nice wireless mouse with a good battery life unlike the g700. The Mamba doesn't have a good battery life but at the very least it comes with a charging dock so you don't have to plug the mouse in every day.

 

I don't know what the guys at Razer are thinking. They are making awesome hardware. The Mamba is one of the best mouse i've ever used. Shape is awesome. Weight is good. The charging dock is nice. It is a ********* good looking mouse. But god the software is crap. It's awful. It will eventually bring this nice little company down. I'll personally never ever buy any Razer product again not even a mouse pad even if they are making good mouse pad.

 

Anyway i'm finally enjoyer a lag free mouse. And software not crashing every 2 or 3 days.

 

So please answer the pool what should i do with my Mamba 2012?

Don't think so. The feets alone would make it worse anyway for me it would.

I thought so too until I bought a Logitech G600 white. It's pretty much perfect. I replaced all my other mice with G600's. Logitech software is rock solid too.

The hammer is the only option. I swore off razer products a long time ago. Cheaply made overrated garbage for the most part.

 

I have heard a few good things about their custom made mechanical switches for their keyboards but that's about it.

Yea I'm of a same mind. I do like Microsoft's mice.. but I picked up a G602 a couple of weeks back and dayum, I love this mouse, probably the best I've ever owned. The switches are supposed to last a hell of a long time too, something that almost always craps out on mice for me,even the super expensive ones. Spent a lot less on it than some of the other mice I've had in the past too, about half of what I paid for my last mouse. (RAT 7.)

As far as the old mouse goes.. if it's still in good shape I'd probably see if I can get a taker on eBay or CraigsList or something.. those mice aren't cheap. I'd usually just say "meh toss it or save for an emergency", but they're well over $100, I'd try for a resale.

I'll probably keep it around for emergency. I don't like to sell half working products. Doing a simple search on Google for Mamba and lags gives a lot of results.

 

The frustrating part of it is the problem is not hardware related. When i un-install Synapse and use the mouse as a plug and play generic mouse i don't get any lags at all. It's working perfectly. But then i'm stuck with a plug and play mouse working at very high dpi without any way to reduce it when not playing games. I also can't turn the light off or make the mouse turn itself off after 5 min instead of 15 (the default value) as a plug and play mouse so the battery don't last as long.

 

Anyway it's not like i'm in need of money but i liked the shape of the Mamba so much it's a shame the drivers are not working properly.

 

Actually i think i paid 90$ for the Mamba in a boxing day sale.

 

My only problem with the g602 so far is 2500dpi is not a lot. After using the Mamba for a while 2500dpi feels slow i'll need to up the sensitivity in my games a little bit i'm used to play at 3200+dpi.

I hear that -- I'll toss out "Careful with Cyborg mice.. the switches are cheap crap" as well. That's why my RAT 7 is in the junk pile, had to write a stupid mouse "de-bouncer" till I replaced it, apparently a common problem with those and one of the reasons I specifically picked the G602. Pretty bad for a $100 mouse.

I just leave it on, usually runs in power saver mode, just replaced the batteries a few days ago, lasted at least month before the warning light started flashing.  I *think* it automatically goes into a standby node after a while too, not at my desk anymore to check.

I bought the Intellimouse Explorer 3 like 4 years ago and I still to do this day love that mouse (use it at work). I wish I had actually bought more, because they are expensive now. Better yet, I wish they made a new version! I use a Deathadder 2013 (thank you Steam sales) at home, which I replaced my old Deathadder 3.5g which is also 4 years old. I tend to keep old tech, or donate it to friends/family.

Do what happens to all old abandoned PC equipment; put it in that box in the closet.

Must be nice to own a mouse by a company who knows what they are doing.  Given you said "sort of" I would suggest the mouse isn't as described, and throw it away, or give it to your mum or something.

I'm not giving it to you. I'm giving her hand to you. You have to marry her and give her half your belonging and money.

Excellent choice on the G602.  I love that mouse.  The battery life is insanely good.

 

Take that Razer junk and blast it to the moon.   (Y)

I have a G602, bought it few months ago and apart from middle mouse button (wheel) the mouse is fantastic. Middle mouse button it seems in early released mouses has a responsiveness problem that is hardware in nature, and I'm preparing to sent mine to be replaced as it is still in warranty. MMB sometimes works sometimes does not, sometimes light click is all it is needed and sometimes only a ton of pressure will work. Just keep an eye for that, otherwise it is close to perfect.

I would give it a better home than warwagon, treat her with respect, take her out to dinner once a week too...I might even give her a bath once a month.  marriage, no I have a wife...a mouse is no comparison to a wife.  While the mouse may have a tiff, it doesn't bitch at you, it doesn't cook or clean for you, it doesn't tell you what you did wrong, hell it doesn't even offer any sort of adult communication...it does how ever sit there until you are ready to abuse it...err use it.

I love my 602 as well; great mouse, great battery life. I get plenty of life out of the batteries, more so than I really anticipated. I have this box of 16 AAs that I feel like will take a couple years to go through, if I don't end up using them for something else.

 

As for the Razer, take the hammer to it. I'm with Trag3dy on the swearing off of Razer products. I'm tired of being let down by an "edgy" company that can't even get their shipments right. :sleep2:
