"If you are a gamer of any kind, you simply must go out and buy this mouse."

Sensitivity and Performance

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 stress.

Using 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.

Final Thoughts

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.
