Razer wanted to make a gamer mouse that
is simple: with its three buttons and a scroll wheel, the Abyssus (available in two models, Standard and Mirror Edition) is actually the
game accessory market the most basic. But what justifies such austerity does a price so high?
The Razer Abyssus is created for gamers looking for
quality, reliability and performance in a no-nonsense, straightforward
gaming-grade mouse. Designed to focus on the fundamentals of competitive
gaming, the Razer Abyssus is armed with ultra-responsive buttons tuned
for maximum tactile feedback. With an uncompromising 3500dpi Razer
Precision 3.5G infrared sensor at its core, take full control of your
every aim with perfect tracking so you outgun your competition.
The Abyssus is well with his back
pleasantly plump to fit most palms. The finish (matt for the standard
model, painted for the mirror) is good, as one might expect from a
Razer product. The surprise is the absence of everything that characterizes first
glance, a mouse for gamers. With its three buttons, it makes little! The only
fun of this mouse gene is under his belly, where there are two small
switches. The first (not in the standard edition), adjusts the speed
of transmission on two values, 125 or 1000 Hz, using the second
choice of sensitivity: 450, 1800 or 3500 dpi. These three values are
not particularly exciting, speed issue. It is still faster than a
standard mouse, but it is still far from enough for the relaxation of
excited. Players of MMORPGs, they will be frustrated by the lack of
buttons and shortcuts to macros. The fans of strategy games in the old
school StarCraft or Red Alert will, ultimately, better

A real paradox: this mouse is gamer DNA but has a desktop device!
Although it has a nice look and a higher speed than the average in its
price range, but it meets its limits in the hands of players with a
little bottle or practicing complex games. Adding a little salt, given
the proposed functions. The Razer Mirror Edition is a variation with smooth feel and shiny plastic model of Abyssus. Simple but effective, the price of $50 is very attractive.
