LLC has produced a revolutionary mouse that will likely change the way you
think about mice all together. It's the Razer Boomslang
1000\2000 DPI, and believe me, this is no ordinary mouse! The Boomslang can
upgrade your gaming and deliver options "on the fly."
The stylish Razer Boomslang has
a total of 5 buttons on it, but only 4 can be used at any time. One left, one right,
a scroll middle button, and a new (assigned) button that is controlled by
the thumb for either right- or left-handed folks.
The elegant symmetry of the Boomslang is what makes the thumb
button work for either hand. Kärna
opted to use a ball over a laser since that would increase DPI; the higher
the DPI, the more precise and sensitive the mouse. The improved precision
and sensitivity of the Boomslang is produced by using a light beam to
count the rotations on the encoder wheel, which results in the increased
standard PS/2 mouse has around 300-400 DPI, which is slow and jumpy
compared to 1000 DPI for the standard Boomslang and a whopping 2000 DPI
for the Boomslang 2000.
Up to an 8 keystroke macro can be assigned to any of the 5 keys of the Boomslang. Though clearly designed for gaming, the Boomslang's excellent performance and accuracy combined with its ability to control smoothness and speed of motion proved useful even in my graphics work in Photoshop. Yet another advantage is the ball cleaner. With its patented dust barrier in place, the innards of the mouse will remain clean and assure a long and healthy life.
customization utility is very easy
to use and includes several effective graphical screens. There are 20
different sensitivity settings which are easy to change, and you can turn the
on-the-fly sensitivity changes on and off in a snap. There is also an option for a graphical meter to appear to the right of your screen when
you use on-the-fly sensitivity changes. In scroll wheel customization you
can set the normal scrolling speeds from one line to one page per tick,
and turn universal scrolling on or off. The buttons configuration includes
customization for the four active buttons and the setting to right-handed
mode or left handed mode. The last tab in the customizer program is
important only if youre using the PS/2 Flex options. The default is set
to off but you can turn it on and change the poll rate to seven different
settings, all the way up to 200 Hz.
Featuring an ergonomic design, innovative features and breakthrough
technology, the Razer Boomslang gives many players the competitive edge
they seek in todays games. Even
the cord is an impressive 7 feet long!
The adjustable sensitivity, smoothness, and near perfect movement
of the Razer Boomslang makes it the current king of gaming mice.
