Best Mid-Range Wireless Mouse Razer Mamba Wireless

Razer Mamba Wireless Gaming Mouse: 16,000 DPI Optical Sensor - Chroma RGB Lighting -...

Before the arrival of the Razer Viper Ultimate, the wireless mouse market was dominated by another Razer mouse, which was quite expensive, namely the Razer Mamba Wireless. Don’t worry, since then, its price has dropped considerably. While its age is showing and it is still at the top of the wireless gaming world, this Razer mouse is not as good as other Razer peripherals.

The wireless gaming mouse has a total of 7 programmable buttons. Of course, there is the left and right click, and the scroll wheel. As well as 2 buttons used for DPI adjustment and 2 thumb buttons on the left side. All buttons are equipped with Razer mechanical mouse switches and are comfortable to press.

The Razer Mamba has an ergonomic design and is not ambidextrous. Rubber grips line both sides and, to be honest, they look like big wires running in and out of the mouse. Other than that, there’s nothing unusual about the design, and the Razer Mamba itself works well with palm grip and claw grip, unfortunately no fingertip grip here.

The mouse feet are also pretty above average and they should glide quite well even if you don’t have a mouse pad. As for the USB cable, yes I said cable, this wireless gaming mouse can also be used as a wired mouse after all. You see, the Razer Mamba does not rely on a docking station to transmit signals, instead it uses a USB receiver with a small dongle that is stored in the belly of the snake. There is also a USB extension cable that will allow you to play while charging if you are tired of the wireless connection and prefer a wired connection. Although the USB cable is a bit stiff and not very flexible, since it is primarily a wireless mouse, I think we can excuse it.

Now, according to Razer, a single mouse switch can handle 50 million clicks. I’m ashamed to say that I couldn’t press each button 50 million times in the week I spent reviewing this mouse, but I’m inclined to believe them, as Razer has rarely disappointed in the past.

Although I don’t see why you would get tired, as the connection is pretty solid and in my testing time, I didn’t encounter any lag or latency issues with the Razer mouse itself. The battery is also very good with 50 hours of battery life, of course with the RGB lighting turned off.

Like most other Razer mice, the Razer Mamba Wireless comes with the Razer Synapse software. You can use it to change the color of the RGB lighting on the scroll wheel and the logo on the palm rest, as well as to create dynamic lighting effects. You can also customize profiles and synchronize the Razer mouse with your Razer keyboard or any other Razer product.

As for its performance, the gaming mouse features an acclaimed sensor called Razer 5G Advanced. The optical sensor has up to 16000 DPI and is very accurate. Although I still prefer the Focus+ to any other.

I tested this Razer mouse on Rocket League, Sea of Thieves, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Overwatch. The mouse worked well with all titles in both wireless and wired modes. The extra buttons were very useful in Overwatch, as they often are, and they were surprisingly helpful in Sea of Thieves and Red Dead Redemption 2. However, the mouse did get a little uncomfortable during those long gaming sessions, and I noticed a slight difference in the response time of the mechanical switch compared to the Razer optical mouse switch, but that’s just me. For the normal consumer, you won’t see much difference.
