CES 2009: Razer Mamba Mouse & Carcharias Headset Hit Vegas

Peripheral manufacturer Razer has two new products here in Vegas, the Mamba gaming mouse and the bizarrely titled Carcharias gaming headset.

Starting with the Mamba, it appears to be a modified version of the DeathAdder mouse. First of all it is wireless, using 2.4GHz RF and an integrated battery that offers an impressive 14 hours of continuous gaming, or 72 hours of 'normal' gaming. It features DPI and battery life indicators and the 3.5G Laser sensor offers up to 5,600 DPI - just in case you need the reactions of a squirrel on steroids.

It also boasts a 1ms response time and on-board memory, so you can carry your settings wherever you get your game on. However its most alluring characteristic, particularly for a 'wireless' mouse, is that the Mamba also comes with a detachable seven-foot cable. This is bound to please gamers with distaste for wireless mice, but also ensures you can fall back on the cable when you run out of juice.

Available from February 2009, the Mamba will carry a 129.99 Euro SRP.

Joining the Mamba mouse is the Carcharias headset. It'll retail for 79.99 Euros and will be available from January on Razer's own webstore. It is an over-ear (circumaural) headset and offers interchangeable earpads for customising the fit and a fully adjustable headband. Its microphone has 'noise filtering' and there's also an inline remote for controlling volume and the microphone. See below for the full-specs.

Looks good and the stats are great, but a &#163130 mouse (since &#163/E are at virtual partity)? Fail.

hi, when you do a full review on the razer mamba, could you confirm whether the mouse has no prediction/correction with its tracking. I saw on a razer video on youtube and the razer guy said it had no prediction which interested me.

could you test if the mamba has perfect tracking, whether it skips, has any negative or positive feedback and whether it's true that the mouse has no prediction/correction (unlike the deathadder which has prediction).

also in your review could you work out the exact measurement of the lift-off distance for the mouse on various types (hard, cloth, etc) of mousepads. because a mouse with high lift-off distance is bad for low sensitivity gamers that like to lift their mouse off the pad when they swipe.

i am looking forward to this new mouse from razer, i hope the high price is justified, because on paper it is a great mouse. 200ips/50g is a massive statement and could it be? lag free wireless!!!

i look forward to reading your full review on this mouse, i really do hope it lives up to its hype.
