    Excellent Mouse, Poor QC.

    I absolutely love this mouse, it has an excellent shape and feel, optical sensor, switches, and an improved mouse wheel over past Razer mice though it is a bit loose side to side, and more lighting customization if that's your thing. Easily the best wired Razer mouse in my opinion. Sadly though, I'm now on my 3rd one, my first one the DPI Up button went after about a month and a half, thought no big deal it happens, swapped it out for a 2nd one. That out out of the box had a terrible bottom thumb button, was mushy and sitting under the height that it should of been and would spring up on release, and the side to side scroll wheel wasn't working right in general. Don't know if I just had bad luck and my local stores just happen to get a bad batch, in the past I've had the Deathadder 2013 for 3 years before it encountered an issue, and a DeathAdder Elite and Lancehead TE, both which had 0 issues but just sold off the Deathadder Elite due to needing onboard profiles for a specific situation and the Lancehead TE just didn't fit my grip well. But the QC apparently needs some improvement on Razer's end, high end mice with a $90 price tag shouldn't have any issues out of the box specially like the 2nd one I had. 3rd time's the charm I guess, just hoping it lasts and that new batches of this model have any issues sorted out since again, the mouse is fantastic when it works.

    Great mouse, poor/no config software for MacOS

    Posted

    I needed a new mouse and after reading the reviews and this one seemed great. I use Mac and Linux primarily, so I needed a mouse that was compatible with at least one of those operating systems. I don't do much gaming, just wanted a high quality mouse. I purchased this mouse, because it claimed "Compatible with most Windows and Mac computers". Ok, the mouse does work on linux and MacOS, but the Synapse 3 software does not, It only works on Windows. So, I spun up a VM with WIN10 thinking I could configure the mouse and save my settings to the onboard memory of the mouse. I was able to create profiles and save them to the mouse, but they will only work on windows, when I switched to MacOS it only uses the builtin default profile. I went to the Razer website to see if they had plans to support MacOS for Synapse 3, this is from the website: "Will Synapse 3 work on Mac? As of now, Razer Synapse 3 will only work on the PC." I should have done better due diligence and checked for MacOS support. I love the mouse, just wish the configuration software supported MacOS or Linux.

    I love this mouse. I bought it with the CORSAIR - Gaming STRAFE RGB MK.2 MX Silent Mechanical Wired CHERRY MX Silent RGB Switch Keyboard with RGB Back Lighting - Black, and the two synchronize beautifully together. I just love watching the lights shift thru the rainbow colors like a wave. The mouse is also pretty comfortable. I'm a petite gal (5'3") and it fits my hand well. I got this mouse because my old one was giving me problems... was waking up with stiff fingers after long gaming sessions. Since switching to this mouse I haven't had any stiffness or soreness at all.

    mouse is great i love it works pretty much perfect, only problem why i give it 4 stars is the griping on it is wierd i mean sides have that rubber to keep it steady but the top end on the palm it self is so slick your hand pretty much slides off the mouse, or maybe its just the way i handle it. well i play a number of games and when im constantly using the macro buttons on the mouse well i no longer have a good grip on the mouse with my fingers since my thumb is being used to use the macro buttons and my palm has no friction to keep the mouse steady so i feel like it slides away and takes my attention from the game for a sec or 2.

    Great for FPS and general gaming

    The mamba elite is light, has an excellent optical sensor, and a form factor that will be comfortable for most hands. The buttons feel great to click, the mouse glides very smoothly, and the rubberized side grips are great when lifting the mouse. The braided cable does not tangle nor does it impede mouse movements. Although a bit pricey this is a great choice for PC gaming enthusiasts. The RGB lighting is a nice touch if that is your thing. However, the Razer software is a bit lacking and as of now I would not recommend this mouse for anyone who is concerned with programming macros.

    Ended up going to BestBuy earlier in the day to buy start buying stuff for my computer build... including a Razer keyboard and mouse. I took it home, set it up, and loved it. My stuff was simple as I code more than I play games. My boyfriend saw my setup and immediately begged to go back to BestBuy and buy the same for him. This product is the result up that. Upgraded... even more features and he's absolutely in love with it. Highly recommend!

    Some cool lighting features. Decent feel except I find myself making accidental right clicks. Maybe just because I was used to my older mouse? I like to set the thumb button for a double click but I think the positioning of it or the design changed slightly for my comfort. Otherwise it is lightweight and doesn't feel slippery like some others I have used. I rotate with another mouse to relieve fatigue and change up the feel.

    Love the new mouse. Feels great in the hand. The rgb lighting is solid. Love the quick switch feature on the bottom of the mouse to switch between different pre-made settings in synapse (used to have to go through synapse every time). Also like the dpi setting buttons on the mouse itself. Overall its a great mouse, I use it for FPS, and RTS games.

    The mouse houses very nice RGB chroma strips with 20 different lighting zones for customization. It has onboard memory but doesn’t save RGB settings when exited out of synapse. The mouse houses a top optical sensor and weighs 96 grams. Great mouse for my large hands and claw grip!

    I was using a Logitech G502 for a while and got tired of the thumb shelf. I never used a Razer mouse before, but I don't think I will use anything else in the future. I like how light and responsive it is. The Synapse software is a mess but the mouse is simple enough to set up.

    I had the mamba wireless from 2015, I sold that cus it was clunky and the sensor wasn't that great. I decided to give this one a try and I love it. The sensor is amazing and the liftoff is great. If you are a mid range palm and claw grip, this one would suit you well.

    overall i love razer products, however with their mice, i have had difficulties. Literally every razer mouse i have ever bought loses it's rubber grippies within a few months of use. I game regularly, but even my wife's mouse did the same thing.

    This is an amazing mouse, the extra glands razer added on this mouse allows the mouse to glide on the pad. The rgb lighting on this mouse is insane as well as the new level of dpi razed made on their mouse. This will allow you to have a great gaming expierince on any game you play.

    This mouse is really good but I would recommend getting the 2 year warranty as the lazer always seems to go out on this brand of mouse and you end up needing to replace it. Other than that it works really well, feels good to use, and is really pretty.

    This is the first gaming mouse I have ever purchased. It has served me well so far. It has a great feel and works. There is only one problem that I have experienced with it. Sometimes the sensor will stop working and this has gotten me killed several times.

    This mouse had everything I was looking for in a gaming mouse! I have fairly large hands and the mouse I was previously using was quite small for my hands so I picked up this one and it did not let me down. It has a nice feel and weight to it and moves around smoothly.

    I've been a fan of razer, I just like the feel of their products, It has like a nice weight to it. I've had other razer mouses but the Mamba Elite caught my eye because of the RGB. The RGB is probably the best on any gaming mouse out there.

    Bought it with the Razer Blackwidow Elite keyboard. Razer continues to set itself apart from the competition. Love the RGB syncing capabilities. Mouse is shaped perfectly for hours of comfortable gaming.
