Razer Boomslang can be installed using either USB (which it
natively supports), or to a PS/2 port using the USB to PS/2
connector that was supplied. If you choose the first option,
you are going to need to make sure that you have installed the
supplied drivers before you proceed. Windows cannot automatically
recognize the Boomslang without the drivers first being installed,
remember, this is not your ordinary mouse.
to a PS/2 port is pretty much the same. The drivers must be
loaded before connection, and you must first turn off your computer
before plugging it in. While the USB port is obviously faster
than the PS/2 kärna let's you adjust the polling rate (speed
at which the mouse and computer communicate) while connected
to the PS/2 port. Options range from 10 to 200Hz, whereas its
best to run the mouse at 200Hz, giving you the option to change
the polling rate is a good idea, especially if you run into
sheer size of this mouse takes some getting used to, particularly
for people with small hands, or those used to using one of Logitech's

and does not scroll as smoothly as we would have liked. You
may also notice that the buttons are extremely easy to depress.
This takes a lot of getting used to, as often times simply placing
your fingers on them would result in an undesired click.
