On my aging Windows 7 work PC, I have experienced some issues with wireless performance, however: occasional stuttery or laggy cursor movement on the Windows desktop. I’ve also experienced the signal seemingly cutting out for a couple seconds, the light beneath the charging dock going dark, and then reconnecting after about five seconds.
The Mamba's shape and materials feel great in the hand, but wireless comes at a high cost: in dollars, weight, and frequent charging.
You're probably going to want to charge the mouse up every night - and that can be a bit of a bummer at first, if you're not used to hanging up the tools at the end of the day. Other than that, this mouse is just as superior as its closest brethren.
Features for features' sake are pointless, but most of those here do also have legitimate uses, even if 16,000 DPI is a little crazy. Just as important is the fact that the Mamba is very comfortable and a good performer.
The Mamba doesn’t have much competition. Razer offers the Ouroboros, with its ambidextrous design and adjustable body panels, at the same $150 price point, but it’s considerably more uncomfortable than the curvy Mamba. The older wireless Mamba is still being sold at a slightly more palatable $130, but it doesn’t include Chroma lighting, click force adjustment, or the top-mounted DPI buttons, and has less appealing battery life.
