It's big, it's green and it eats everything else for dinner. No, it's not a T-Rex; it's the Razer Mantis, the largest gaming mouse surface on the market today. This is Razer's newest edition to the gaming community.
The Razer Corporation was formed in the mid to late 90's. Their main focus is to produce the highest quality precision gaming peripherals made. Their first marketed product was the now famous Razer Boomslang gaming mouse. A mouse that offered up to 2000 DPI while all other gaming mice were still stuck in the 400 DPI area. Since the Boomslang, Razer has produced the Viper, Diamondback and Copperhead gaming mice along with the Exact Mat, a dual sided anodized aluminum mousing surface. Future products to be released are the Tarantula Gaming Keyboard and the Barracuda Gaming Audio System.
As with all other Razer products this mousing surface comes brightly packaged to catch the consumer's eye. The cylindrical clear plastic tubing cannot be missed if on a display where all other mouse pads are packaged in square boxes.
After opening the top of the tube inside you'll find the biggest mousing surface you have ever seen. "This thing is a monster." The pad is green and black with the Razer Logo smack in the center of the pad. This mat is made of a new cloth called Fibertek. It is designed to ensure the most precise tracking and targeting without limiting velocity and acceleration.
The back of the pad is made of rubber, giving the pad great sticking power on all surfaces. Believe me, this thing sticks like glue.
Now that it's out of it's package and you've moved many nic knacks that you might have on your desk it's time to test out this beast.
