Razer Mamba Intro & Unboxing
Razer has a long tradition of revamping their products to meet the ever-changing needs of today’s gamers and the Razer Mamba is no exception to that rule. Razer actually went a little modest in naming this mouse just the “Razer Mamba” , it’s more the Razer Mamba Wired / Wireless Chroma but we aren’t in the naming department of Razer so Razer Mamba will have to suffice.. We were first exposed to the Mamba in the Wireless rechargeable Mamba back in 2011 and it sported a 5600 DPI Laser and was wireless and wired and at the time just holding it in your hand would draw a silent Wow from your lips.
Now Razer has revamped the Mamba and we aren’t talking a tweak here and there, this new Mamba has its roots in the original Mamba but it’s both Wireless and Wired, has a 16000 DPI Laser sensor that’s adjustable in 1 DPI increments and has the 16.8 Million color Chroma that’s taken the gaming world by storm. We’ve looked at the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition a short while back and it introduced us to the 16000 DPI laser sensor capable of 5G acceleration and we quickly adopted it as the go to mouse not only for gaming bet every day lab and computing use. Razer set the bar high with the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition and it’s a great gaming mouse by itself but toss in the same functionality and give it wireless capabilities as well as using it in wired mode and you have a mind-blowing great mouse that any gamer would be thrilled and excited to have in their gaming arsenal.
When the Razer Mamba arrived we were a little shocked and awed by the size of the box so we rushed to our pile of coveted gaming equipment and plucked the Mamba Tournament Edition out of the pile and got a side by side photo. From the size of the box we knew Razer was letting us in for a treat, when Razer packages a product like this you’re in for some major jaw dropping time.
We shucked the Razer Mamba out of its box like a hungry man digging open an oyster and inside the outer packaging we found a metal box with the Razer Logo. Now if your on the road to LAN parties or tournaments what better way to protect your gaming mouse than a metal box. Compared to most mouse packaging this is like the Fort Knox of Mice packaging.
Once opened we found the Mamba quietly resting in the metal box in custom cut heavy-duty foam with the “Welcome to the cult of Razer” slogan and couldn’t wait to check out the goodies inside.
Once inside we found the Mamba and charging dock / wireless receiver, the 7 foot fiber braided mouse cable a couple of Razer Logo Stickers, the Quick Start Guide and an adjustment tool for the pressure sensitivity it takes to click the mouse. The sensitivity adjustment is pretty revolutionary and we’ll get to it in a little bit but this is the first mouse we’ve had hands on that you could adjust the mouse click pressure to your needs that we’ve had hands on.
