5.0 out of 5 stars A very well designed mouse. 17 Dec 2010
Unlike the person writing the one-star review below I know little about gaming mice. This is the first gaming mouse I have owned and only the 3rd mouse I have ever owned. I do however do a lot of online gaming; CS:S, MW2, Black Ops, Battlefield etc, and consider myself at an above average skill level. I have owned this mouse for 7 months now so I feel that I'm in a good position to review it.

Before this mouse I had a wireless 800dpi Logitech which I can't complain about as it was all I knew. My reason for change was that I had read that I was hindering myself with a cordless mouse, and that I needed a wired mouse to cut down on response latency. My choice was nothing to do with dpi. I chose Razer because they were the best looking mice in my opinion, and the ratio of good to bad reviews was favourable. I chose the Imperator because it was the closest in shape to my old Logitech mouse. The price didn't seem too bad either; there were cheaper mice but there were also much more expensive mice.

The size, shape and weight of a mouse are all personal preferences so I won't say too much about this. The Imperator is quite a slight mouse, compared to other gaming mice. It has a fairly "conventional" shape with subtle lines. Grooves and lumps in all the right places though, like under the thumb and little finger and also on the main buttons so that my hand just kind of falls into place. My previous mouse was quite heavy (with 2 AA batteries inside) so the biggest learning curve for me was getting used to the fact that the Imperator is a light mouse, with no adjustment for weight like so many other gaming mice. This was my biggest concern before I bought the mouse. It turns out a lighter mouse was just what I needed though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Razer did it again! 19 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase
Last year I bought a gaming PC and all the accessories I got with it were made by Razer. The mouse I had at the time was the Mamba, but a few days ago I decided to give the Imperator a go. To me, it's like they took the Mamba and made it better. The overall design is great for the palm, there's also a useful thumb groove. A problem I had with the Mamba was that my thumb would occasionally scrape my mat, but no longer with the Imperator. You can also change the DPI settings to your liking, for example, some mice, like the Abyssus, have pre-set DPIs, but with this you can tailor to your exact needs. Two buttons on the top of the mouse change the DPI up and down, there's also a handy on-screen display of what your current DPI is. The two side-buttons can also be moved towards the front or back of the mouse. I was surprised to see how sturdy the mechanism was, at first I was a bit sceptical. To me, it's not a big deal, but obviously it depends on your game or style.

This is a pricey mouse, but trust me, it's worth it. If you feel that it's still too much then I would recommend looking at other Razer products such as the Deathadder or Abyssus. Razer products may not be the cheapest PC accessories, but they are well worth the money you put down for them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slick!!! 7 Dec 2010
By Stoebe
I have to admit, with my first razer mouse it is incredible! Adjustable buttons on the side, fast responsive scroll wheel and plenty of buttons for gaming use. 5600 dpi is way to much, but it at least allows you to customize its responsiveness. So basically you will never have to upgrade for a faster mouse. I gave it 4 stars because the mac drivers are pretty laking. Since I game mostly on bootcamp on my mac, its not that much of a problem, buts it a inconvenience. Overall, brilliant mouse for a brilliant price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mice! 20 Oct 2010
By M. Chrobot VINE VOICE

I've been using those cheap mice for quite a long time. Tbh I was happy with them until I got to use this mice. I don't have to drag the mouse over the whole pad to get to the other end of the screen! You can change the options so that you don't jump right in into 5600DPI. The mice is very precise and every (slight) move is visible on the screen. Saves a lot of time. It might take some time to get used to it, but at the end of the day it's worth it.

There's a review on here saying that the mice is not good for games. Well it depends. You need to get used to the mice first as going from 500dpi to few thousand is not easy (especially the 1st day). Changing the dpi to 500 works fine. No problems at all (unlike the other review stated). Overall this is a great mice, I'd recommend it to any one who spends long hours in front of the computer.

UPDATE: Just thought I should update my review regarding gaming. Played Metro2033 a few times. I found this mice to be much better, as you can move around faster. It just takes a while to get used to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Absolutely Fantastic. 14 Aug 2010
I wouldn't listen to the one star review below, I am an avid gamer and personally, playing on the likes of 400 DPI for me would be impossible. You'd have to have a large table, just for the mouse so you could turn. But thats irrelevant.

I recieved this mouse today to replace my old wireless microsoft intellimouse. It is quite frankly amazing. So much more responsive and the left mouse button doesn't stick down (Although that was from wear and tear) It is incredibly comfortable to use and feels, well 'right'.

There is one issue with this mouse however, which is on all the Razer mice with this sensor. When you lift it up it goes slightly diagonally down (probably about half a centimeter), however I would not let this dissuade you from buying. I had read it on the internet, and had I not been looking for it, I never would of noticed it.

Simply superb. Would buy another in an instant.
