I have for the last 10 years been the proud owner of a Logitech Trackman Marble, as I consistently kicked butt on a variety of online games, namely Counterstrike, Team Fortress and recently Team Fortress 2, I was a little sceptical as to how much better could I really get just by changing my mouse. I usually get a kill to death ratio of around 1:3 after a few hours gaming (Best being 46:1)and having people accuse me of cheating and using an aimbot is fairly normal.

I got given a Play.com voucher for my birthday and decided I would treat myself to a new mouse. As the cash was not coming out of my own pocket it would not matter if said purchase turned out to be a dissapointment, it would merely get thrown into my box of 'stuff': the box with gadgets which did not entirely deliver on their promises (Olympus Eyetreks, mini helicopters and a load of mobile phones) Well the package arrived this morning, first impressions were very good, Razer are clearly a company that know how to market and package their products to maximum effect!

Plugging it in sans drivers gives you basic functionality, to customise the experience further, the supplied drivers and software are required. Again, Razer really have looked at the experience from start to finish, the software is as basic and user friendly as it needs to be and works very well. The mouse comes with a total of 7 buttons, all of which can be customised, one of which comes ready mapped to allow you to adjust the sensitivity 'on the fly'. Normal windows use sees this set fairly low with the higher settings coming into play when in game.

First impressions in game (TF2) were a bit dissapointing, I got shot twice in the first 2 minutes and the movement was very jerky, all of the sensitivity adjustments on the Razer software made no difference. The problem however lay in the game settings for TF2, I had the in-game mouse acceleration set to midway with the 'Mouse Filter' option ticked, turning these both off sorted the issue out.

Going back to the game with only the Razor settings in effect looked much more promising, the movement on screen was silky smooth, with near perfect tracking, it was at that moment I knew the higher resolution would be of huge benefit to me, to be able to track targets with pixel perfect accuracy was going to give me the edge over everyone without such a device.

2 hours on, 160 kills and only 20 deaths later (8:1) I can quite honestly say this mouse has raised my game massively, going from a trackball to a mouse took a little getting used to, helped massively by the fact that it is so damn comfortable to use, it fits perfectly in the hand and the teflon feet means it glides over just about all surfaces with ease. I have also borrowed and will be purchasing the Razer Exactmat which makes the mouse even better to use with both of its silky smooth surfaces (one for control and one for speed)

For £25.00 it is a bit of a bargain, especially if you are serious about gaming, heck its a bit of a bargain even if you dont play games, the comfort and accuracy mean it is far more comfortable for long term use than a standard optical mouse, the green lighting might not be to everyones tastes, but it does look funky.

In short, I can't believe I waited this long to buy one.

Absolutely fantastic!

I am not a huge fan of all the blurb and jargon usually associated with a gaming mouse. All I am interested in is how accurate is it and how comfortable is it after 2 or 3 hours of gaming.

That was until I got one of these.....

I can honestly say that it lives up to its reputation and beyond. This is not only the most accurate and fastest mouse I have owned (and that is when set to its mid point) but after a couple of hours you hardly notice it as it has become just an extension of your hand. As a bonus Acid Green is such a cool colour.

True they are not in the budget range but I can honestly say it is worth every penny.

 Solid Hardware. Usless Drivers.

In terms of build quality and performance, the Diamondback 3G is everything you could hope for in a mouse. The rubberised surface adds grip and doesn't feel like it'll rub away like most mice surfaces. The mouse feels like pro hardware despite the radioactive green LED that could have been seen as gimmicky on a lesser mouse.

But unfortunately this just isn't the gamer mouse it claims to be, thanks to the drivers. The drivers are very poorly recognised on a wide variety of games.

This is further compounded by the inability to configure the buttons for each application/game. So a mouse that performs excellently in Windows and office software turns to garbage in games as you're completely unable to customise the buttons without some becoming unusable. This means that left handed gamers in particular will find this mouse completely unusable.

This is not a problem I've had with any other mouse and it seems particularly unfortunate that this so called gamer mouse would fail so hard at working in games.

The drivers haven't been updated at all since the mouse was released and according to their technical support that's not going to change any time soon.

All in all, I can't really recommend this mouse as the drivers are by far the worst I've ever used. But right handed gamers may find it adequate.

Im glad i got persuaded into joining the razer mouse family.

I was on the verge of buying the deathadder but was reccomended to get this one as im new to the razer mice.

I have to admit its very responsive and very comfortable to use. The only thing im getting use to is the side buttons but thats just me.

Cant wait to get on tf2 and start enjoying more :)

 GREAT!!

This is my first proper gaming mouse, all my others have been like Microsoft Basic Mouse and ones that come free with laptop carry cases.
I can quite honestly say this is the best mouse I have ever used.
When I first saw it here on play.com, from the picture I thought it might be at bit small, but it's perfect! The buttons are discrete but useful, except for the extra buttons on the left hand side, they're a bit hard to reach whilst in game. As soon as I opened the packet, I could see that it was of high quality from the look of the plastic.
I'll leave another review in a few weeks to update what I think of it.
