After about a month of using this thing, I could never go back
to using a standard (a.k.a slow) mouse. This thing is so much
faster and more precise than any thing I have used in the past.
At a setting of 8.5, to move the cursor from one end of my screen
to the other (res set to 1152x864) meant moving the mouse only
about half an inch across the pad, talk about reducing muscle
this thing in games is nothing different. If you have the sensitivity
set all the way up, instead of turning around, you will probably
find yourself spinning in circles (in a FPS). Again, we can't
stress enough the importance of getting used to this thing.
Don't get me wrong; this is the best mouse I have ever used
for playing games, especially first person shooters. Let me
tell you, I can't begin to describe how much more accurate the
Boomslang is, it's the difference between a Dodge Viper and
an Oldsmobile. It's that much faster.
If you are a gamer of any kind, you simply must go out and buy
this mouse. Don't be deterred by the $100 price tag, the Boomslang
is worth every penny, and more. You should not have any problems
whatsoever with this mouse, that is of course if you are willing
to spend a little time getting used to it first. The overly
large size might also be a problem for some users. Also, while
I'm complaining, I do wish that the scroll wheel were a little
easier to reach rather than at the tip of my index finger. I
guess nothing can be perfect, but the Razer Boomslang comes
pretty darn close.
