Nice review. I'm currently using a Copperhead, Razer makes quality mice. Also, they all glow like Tron, which is just awesome.

I find that Razer mice are ideal for RTSes. In those games, you're constantly making fast moves and the downward shape of the mouse buttons help, even if it's a small factor. They're also smaller on the bottom than at the top, making them easier to flick with your wrist. I've used Logitech mice for the majority of my time, but I find their semi-circular designs aren't too comfortable for the long run.

What do you think of the Microsoft Habu that Razer helped design? I know it's a little old, but it looks great.

Hey Azn. Ya I could totally see a Copperhead or something similar helping out in RTS games -- probably more so than other games because precision and speed is so, so important in the those games. The button customization could be big as well.

I like the look of the Microsoft Habu. But I don't like the fact that on the top, half of it is hard rubber material and half of it is standard plastic. An all-rubber top is just so much nicer IMHO.

But is it worth upgrading from another mouse?

Like a mx518

Or a G9

I prefer the DeathAdder to the Mx518 or G9, but if I personally had a G9 or MX518 already, then I don't think I'd want to upgrade to the DeathAdder. You might as well wait until you new need a new mouse, or upgrade to a an even better class of mouse.

Depends what you're using the mouse for. The G9 is great for FPS, better than any Razer mouse, IMO. If you have a 518, I think it's worth upgrading to an Imperator. That thing looks sweet.

If you play MMOs, get the Naga. My friends who use it for WoW only need to use WASD, alt/shift/ctrl on their keyboards. The Copperhead is great for RTS, for the reasons I mentioned before. I would've gotten the Krait, but it lacks the side buttons that help in browsers.
