Razer Diamondback Gaming Mouse

When it first came out, the Razer Diamondback was the mouse with the fastest dpi around at 1600. Today, its still pretty fast, but not quite as top-end as some newer mice on the market. You can opt for the Plasma model, the Chameleon, or you can get the Salamander model which has a pretty sweet looking glow effect (shown in photo). I believe both the Chameleon and Plasma models have been discontinued, though, and as such are rather difficult to find.

The mouse itself has 7 buttons. The 2 main buttons are quite large, taking up almost half of the entire length of the mouse, and they’re made of rubber (ya know, if your fingers sweat a lot or…something). The rest of the buttons are great too, and I had no problem reaching any of them during my gami…uh, testing with the mouse. For the review, cus I was testing it, NOT slacking off and playing games all week with it…yea. Oddly, though, I seem to be in the minority in this. Others have reported that they have some difficulty holding the mouse without accidentally clicking one of the side buttons, but I have yet to experience this problem.
