The Razer Viper ($80) is another addition to the company’s crowded gaming mouse-p h a s e, this time aimed at the fans, with the last trend to keep in mind. Due to the fact that it’s Razer’s already a variety of peripherals that would work well for competitive multiplayer, the Viper isn’t exactly stepping into a niche that is not empty. But, as it is a sophisticated, comfortable peripheral with a few exciting changes, it gets the job done. This is the Razer Viper Review.
In spite of my initial skepticism, I’ve enjoyed working with in the Videos. The mouse has a smart, sleek design never before seen on a Razer mouse, and it works just as well with any competitive game, you think it’s worth it to throw away. I wasn’t a big fan of the Viper, of a fixed scroll of a wheel, and the price is a little high, given the offer of a competing brand for the same price. But if you think you have what it takes to compete at the big-league game, and you don’t have the right tools for the job right now, so the Viper could be just what you’re looking for.
Razer Viper Review: Design
The design of the Viper is so minimalist that it took me a few days to figure out that it is full of subtle touches. The Viper is an unbalanced, misleading, click it, and it is very easy to use for both the right-and left-handed users. There are slight curves, and textured grips on the sides for a simple and ergonomic to feel.
My favorite part was the mouse, however, is a strange-looking edge where the palm rest meets the studs. I was sure that this little piece of shiny plastic was going to squeeze it in my palm, but it is well positioned to support the top of my hand as my fingers gently to fold down over the buds. It’s hard to describe, but you know what I mean, when you get a chance to handle one for yourself.
The layout of the buttons is also very sensitive. There is a button on the right side, a left button, a wheel for click-to-play, and two programmable thumb buttons on each side. First of all, I missed the two dots-per-inch (DPI) buttons for sensitivity adjustment on the top of the mouse, like the DeathAdder, Elite offers, but he soon found it, a single DPI button on the bottom of the mouse. This makes a lot of sense: setting the DPI in the middle of a round, it’s not very common, so getting rid of it also helps you to avoid wrong clicks they could make a game.
While the Present is usually comfortable, the scroll wheel was a pain to use in everyday situations. I know that in the middle of a game, the wheel is generally one of the least essential tools that are available to the player. But if you’re going to have to spend $80 on a mouse, chances are that you’re going to want to use it for more than just gaming, and the small, the slow, the wheel offset makes that the productivity of a task. Also, there is nothing that you can do to adjust the resistance and program the speed.
The Viper runs on the – Support‘s Mercurial Synapse software. Depending on the product, I found the Synapse to be in the top, called it quits, and just about everything else. This time, however, the software worked well, so I was able to re-program all the buttons with ease (except for the left-click is set to be in the game. You can adjust the brightness of the RGB, and with so many beautiful patterns in it, or to calibrate the mouse on a surface that you use as a mouse pad.
You can also create a profile with a different color, the calibration button and from the options, and then link them to specific games. You can use a profile to on-board, in this case, the Synapse software is not running in the background, you may want to store the profiles on your computer, if you are just experimenting at home with different settings. It’s all amazingly simple, including the “right-wing” or “left hand” checkbox at the bottom of the screen, which automatically turns off all buttons for the thumb.
Razer Viper Review Performance
Since the Viper is designed for an esports crowd, I tried my usual eclectic mix of games to test, by focusing only on the RTS, MOBA and FPS titles. I was surprised that the Viper has performed throughout the region, especially since it uses the same 5 sensor, such as the good DeathAdder and an Elite.
Fight off the soldiers, the enemies in Heroes of the Swarm and attacking the enemy with a great Ability to overwatch, or simultaneously, to build a base and fend off the hordes game, the Viper, has responded quickly and accurately to my commands. I can’t foresee any problems for the professionals of the sport, the less you will need for a PPP in order to reduce the “sniper” button. But, even so, you can program one of the thumb buttons to serve this purpose.
Razer Viper Review: The Conclusion
The Viper is a simple, well-designed mouse should fit comfortably in the palm of either a novice sports enthusiast in your hand. It’s true, I’m not a competitive whizkid, but I’ve had a lot of fun with it. And, surprisingly enough, I actually think the Viper was able to cut out a nice little niche in a busy gaming mouse to the market.
My biggest concern with the device is that the $ 80 is a lot to ask for, that is, in the final analysis, it’s a pretty no-frills mouse. A DeathAdder for the Elite, with the same sensor and goes for about $50, as well as Logitech, simple G-Pro-mouse. But for a $80 mouse should last you a few years ago, for $30 it’s a viable way to upsell to you, then go ahead and throw your hat in the virtual ring.
8.5 The Total Score
Get the Razer Viper, and if you are a fan of sports, at a cost of $80 for a replacement. If you’re more of a casual player, it’s a cheap mouse with a more ergonomic design is going to be a better fit.
