Razer 4000DPI Lachesis Mouse Reviewed (Verdict: Great on a 30-Inch Screen)

Illustration for article titled Razer 4000DPI Lachesis Mouse Reviewed (Verdict: Great on a 30-Inch Screen)

With 3200dpi gaming mice becoming de rigeur, Razer needed to step it up to 4000 to keep the pissing match going. Even though a 3200dpi mouse is already too fast for some, I4U's reviewer says that Razer's 4000dpi Lachesis "is very accurate and tracking is great," particularly in Crysis. But, most of you probably aren't twitching around a 30-inch screen like the reviewer.

If you're on a considerably smaller screen, you'd probably find yourself in the case of the missing cursor. Fortunately, you can adjust the resolution on the fly, and profiles are stored in the mouse's 32KB of onboard memory. The major drawback's actually the scroll wheel, which he wishes was more like the one on Logitech's G9. That aside, it pulls a pretty solid 9.0 rating.

Since it's an ambidextrous mouse, I'm also guessing dedicated-hand diehards (like myself) or un-fans of Razer ergonomics might not be entirely comfortable with it either. At $80 MSRP, I'd grope one in-store somewhere before dropping coin. [I4U, Razer]]

DISCUSSION

The great thing with Razor's is the software it comes with gives you "On-the-fly" sensitivity adjustment. So when you're done fragging, and it's time to work on that excel spreadsheet, you can press whichever custom button you've set, and scroll the wheel, and drop it down, to a more manageable speed.
