Topic:- Razer gaming mouse – Razer Viper Review – 2021
In this blog, we will review the gaming mouse and welcome to my Razer Viper review surprisingly, they’re doing many things right with the Viper despite the slightly higher price point versus the competition and I feel like the Viper might be a strong contender and delight and complete mice.
The newbie quiet dark rock slim cooler offers high physical clearance for any memory module thanks to its slim heat sink and the low-profile 120ml airflow optimized fan so you get great cooling low noise easy installation and no issues for high profile RAM.
Razer gaming mouse – Razer Viper Review – 2021
So at $79 you’re looking at the mouse with a lightweight design at 69 grams that’s very important that means it’s very close to the Model O but with a solid shell instead of the perforations all around.
And I feel like this might work and Razer’s advantage in the long term because dust and other ambient particles are not entering the mouse body. Because this one is closed unlike many other lightweight designs with perforations that we’ll see in the future.
I’m not exactly sure how this will stack up you know two years down the line but when I think about lightweight mice I think about the perforated design because a final Mouse, Model O and other mice are entering the market.
So if you see the Viper you might not necessarily think that this is a 69 gram Mouse and visually it certainly is not giving off the lightweight vibe because it kind of looks like your standard traditional Mouse is now shape-wise.
I actually preferred the Viper with its low profile and less curvy body over my model all mouse the front triggers feel very nice with proper grooves to house your fingers and the back section flares out perfectly to accommodate my pinky side and need that fat pocket under my thumb.
The side texture is a hard rubber it’s okay for some control even with a sweaty layer while the main texture is slightly coarse with this cool transparent layer behind the logo so the illumination is very well integrated with all the RGB goodness, but that’s it no other illumination areas so the Model O visually is a more beautiful Mouse in my opinion.
The mouse feet are pretty generic which is disappointing given Model O is cheaper and has much better glide feet and you can even hear the glide difference between the two, and in the bottom, we also get the DPI shift button for five profiles that are colour-coded and they’re saved on the mouse itself.
This means you’ll need Razer synapse to configure and access your dpi shifts if you want to customize them and then they’ll travel with you and fortunately, the RGB illumination colour profiles are not saved onboard memory.
If you want to have something other than a rainbow effect cycling on the mouse which is again disappointing, why wouldn’t they configure a little bit of extra memory so it remembers what colour profile you selected?
Not cool so one of the advantages of the new RazerViper is the fact that this shape is ambidextrous, the new speed Fox cable is quite flexible and light it reminds me of the G pro hero cable which is nice I’d still want to bungy toe and flatten.
The exit of this cable so that it doesn’t have curves and is not bothering me when I’m trying to flip the primary switches are optical and that’s a first for a gaming mouse as far as I know so instead of having a mechanical contact to actuate the switch we have a laser and thus no physical contact to register.
The clip the technical advantages here with the optical switches is there’s no D bounce delay which normally happens with a mechanical switch where it filters out the certain milliseconds after the registration happens so on the optical switch is just on and off basically which is awesome.
And there’s no way to develop double-clicking overtime that certain mice develop because of mechanical switches and we also have a 70 million click lifespan for the optical switches instead of your traditional 50 million I’ve never had the mouse die on my butt’s sounds like because of no contact inside the switch.
The lifespan is increased the scroll wheel has full control with nice tactile steps and light enough middle-click too and the side buttons are very flat to the body but with satisfying travel and softer situations.
And finally, the sensor is Razer’s 5g optical 16000 dpi developed with pics art with really good accuracy no spinning out of control and surface tuning to automatically adjust lift-off distance and by this point all esports targeted mice have a fantastic performance.
The viper fits in that category very well and actually preferred the viper shape-wise over my model and I feel very much at home with CSgo with aim correction flicks and lifting the mouse to cover a larger mouse area the only immediate difference.
I feel versus the g305 or the model O are the slightly softer primary clicks that have less travel distance and have less satisfying like the click that you experience on mechanical switches and also the glide feet.
I mean they’re not as smooth as the model O or the g305 which is disappointing considering the mouse itself is more expensive. I honestly feel the Mouser has been priced at $69 to remain competitive and is more of an attractive alternative to something like the G pro that is $69.
All the Model O that is $50 or the rival 310 that is also $50 but I also feel like if Razer had valued it or priced it at lower than $79 it would theoretically devalue the product versus the competition in the eyes of the Razer fan base which is really strong.
Apparently, so my recommendation still stands with the model home that is cheaper and feel like it’s a nice compact overall package or the G Pro from Logitech at 69 bucks or the rival 310 from steel series 450 as well but if you can find the Viper for around that price points like the lower than 79 then I would say it’s definitely worth it.
The optical switches are unique and added longevity is also nice although, I will say throughout my entire mice usage history. I have never experienced double-clicking so I guess it depends on your own history.
