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.
