    Re: Razer launches the Lancehead wireless gaming mouse

    How much for a wireless mouse, from a company that doesn't have a great reputation for quality and durability?

    Re: Razer launches the Lancehead wireless gaming mouse

    I'll be honest, I'm surprised at the price. Yeah £80 is disgusting and all, but I kinda expected it to be £100-120 with it being from Razer

    EDIT: And damnit, it is shaped like the Imperator (my fave ever mouse), AND has the 2 extra buttons under the mouse wheel. I'm gonna end up buying one of these. I hate buying Razer gear, but because I've gotten used to the specific shape and feel, all others feel alien. Hell, when they brought out the latest Death Adder and made me own one, I found out they had changed the shape and it really bummed me out. Glad to see em go back to the old shape.

    Plus, I've been wanting a wireless gaming mouse for a while now, but for some reason I can never find one with enough buttons
    EDIT2: So it seems I read the price for the wired model..God damn Razer, the balls on them to charge ~£140 for a wireless mouse, never mind £80 for a wired one

    Have you not seen the Logitech G700?
    With 8 extra buttons (plus the 2 regular and a 5-way scroll wheel), that almost has enough to even satisfy me... almost!!

    Logitech never feel right, I don't like the materials and I don't like the style

    It's a hell of a price jump for the wireless version. Article doesn't say, but from the 24hr battery life notation, I assume it recharges being wired to USB ?

    What's wrong with a wireless mouse, for gaming?

    A large complaint of professional / semi professional and some casual gamers is the "drag" they feel from the cable, being wireless removes this.

    Oh, some witter about the extra 1ms lag time compromising their game and reaction times, I believe... at least, that's what many of my friends say to justify spending stupid amounts on a mouse that looks no different from a generic Microsoft one...
    That and having to change the batteries mid-game... because remembering to charge the thing more than once in a fortnight is obviously too much!!

    That's just because they can't figure out how to lay their mouse cable without it hanging off the back edge of the desk... and they cannot rise to the purchase of a mouse bungee!!

    Haha, now don't get me wrong, I do prefer my Razer mouse over a standard mouse but I certainly see your point and certainly don't see the problem of having a wireless gaming mouse

    I personally pull extra up and then tape it to the desk so all the cable movement is right where I want it

    See, I have a 700S so I can go wired or wireless however I choose. Neither option is a problem for me and I really don't notice the "0.000025ms lag that gets me killed so much more than if I had 0.000000025ms lag"....
    I don't mind spending lots of money on my stuff (G19 keyboard, anyone?) but it needs to have tangible benefits... and Razer kit is usually too lightweight anyway. I just think they're buying into things they don't really need and are subsequently trying to justify it.

    Pretty much how you do it.
    I simply fold mine and then lay it with a loop over the top to give me the slack.

    Just buy a mouse bungee from Amazon for a few quid and the wire will be a problem no more!
