Razer Mamba Wireless 5600DBP Gaming Mouse by Razer

Had nothing but trouble with this mouse since day 1.

1) The battery life appears to be random. It can stop responding at any time for no obvious reason, even after being on the charging dock for a full night. I can always plug the cable in, but that seriously defeats the concept of wireless.

2) Software, several iteration of it that I've had the pleasure to use, is pretty bad. Each time you launch it - the mouse freezes for about 15 seconds while the software is "Reading the settings".

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain horrible, 11 July 2011
Got this suitcase for a two week trip. Didn't realize it wasn't designed to be rolled around on the wheels when there's stuff inside it. Loaded it to 20 kilos, suitcase weight included, and noticed that the wheels couldn't handle the weight and bent inwards before I managed to get to the car. The wheels got jammed in the bent position and rubbed off completely on the first day.

Completely unsuitable for moving things around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some geeky stuff, 30 Jun 2010
Got two of these today and both seem to work fine.

Since some of the more technically minded people like me might want to know more, here's some stuff I figured out so far:

Computer relevant capacity is 1.36TB.
It consumes 10W when in use and 9W when you're not doing anything with it. If you unplug the USB cable, power consumption drops to 4-5W.
Peak write speed seems to be somewhere between 27 and 28MB/s, which is about half of what your typical internal HDD runs at. That's about 15 hours for a full format or to fill up with files to the brink. Speed drops to around 20MB/s when copying smaller files like .mp3 music.
Comes pre-formatted with NTFS and no… Read more
