Razer Copperhead Gaming Mouse ReviewFormer staff writer - February 9, 2006
The packaging is bright and open to catch the consumer's eye. Inside is the mouse, drivers, "Master Guide" along with a certificate of authenticity. The mouse we will be looking at is the "Tempest Blue" version, this mouse also comes in two other colors, Anarchy Red and Chaos Green. When you open the packaging the first thing you want to grab is the mouse, it has a black rubber feeling plastic on top with 2 large buttons and a grooved wheel for a non slip glide. The center of the mouse has the Razer Logo, which is LED lit. The side rails are made of a non slip clear rubber which has LED's to add a nice aura to the design.
There are also 4 buttons, 2 on each side to compliment this 7 button mouse. The base is made of glossy plastic and has 3 "Smooth Glide" Teflon feet for a nice smooth ride. Tracking control for this mouse is guided by its powerful laser and 320nm precision. There is also a button on the bottom, which at first I was a little confused about, it turns out to be a program button to upgrade the firmware of the mouse. The mouse also has a thin 7ft long non-tangle cord which is plenty long enough to reach anyone's rig. Being left handed my major concern when purchasing a mouse is, "can I use it". Many mouse manufacturers today seem to focus towards the majority which is right handed people. Razer did a good job in their research and thought about total ergonomics this mouse is ambidextrous. When I picked up the mouse it just felt right, the buttons were where I wanted them to be it is lightweight and fits comfortably in my hand, as if it were made for me. Kudos to the Razer design team, nice Job!
