The 2018 Mamba Wireless is not just a mouse, to get certain. Four attributes, the only four that separated it in the DeathAdder, have been eliminated. There is still a small shape gap, and that I favor the Mamba’s milder curves and sculpted thumb buttons. But a lot of that which created the Mamba Wireless particular was missing.
In fact, the 2018 Mamba Wireless is rather literally less of a mouse by that I mean, it weighs of a lot less. I actually complained about the preceding Mamba’s weight, and for good reason. At 125 g, the 2015 Mamba Wireless weighed nicely over the magical 100 g most consumers cite as a cutoff, and it did not carry that burden either. It sensed dense and awkward in ways some similar mice (such as Logitech’s G502) don’t.
The brand new version slims down a while, cutting the pounds to 106 g. A 19 g difference may not seem like much, but it is a marked improvement. The 2018 Mamba Wireless glides smoother, as a result of a blend of their milder weight and slightly bigger feet.
Additionally, it is a much better mouse compared to its predecessor. The 2015 Mamba Wireless utilized a laser sensor, such as all Razer’s wireless mice at that moment. It was a fine sensor, but came on the cusp of this change to the PWM3360 optical sensor and its various subversions – the golden standard in mice sensors since about 2014.
Along with also the 2018 Mamba Wireless employs the very same, so far as I could tell. It would be difficult for the ordinary user to be aware of the difference, because obvious numbers such as DPI have remained exactly the same–the 2015 Mamba Wireless boasted a 16,000 DPI sensor and thus will the 2018 Mamba Wireless. The change from laser to optical ought to see a massive improvement in accuracy, however, and lead to significantly less jitter.
The actual magic is that the battery life however. The 2015 Mamba boasted around 20 hours runtime while the 2018 variant maintains around 50. Just like the majority of RGB apparatus, I suppose that is measured with the light turned off, along with your actual runtime will most likely be shorter by a couple of hours, but even so it is a noticeable improvement.
It is not likely to win any design awards such as the 2015 version, nor can it be anywhere near as futuristic as the Hyperflux version, however, the 2018 Mamba Wireless is pretty damn great regardless. It is lightweight, comfortable, with excellent battery life and also an industry-standard optical sensor. And on top of that, the cost is quite a bit more suitable this time around. For after Razer's stripped off the gimmicks and only nailed the fundamentals, and the outcome is strong - if possibly somewhat unremarkable.
- 50 Hours of battery life for extended gameplay
- Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor for top speed and precision
- Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) for stability and reliable connection
- Super soft and mushy clicks
- Razer software requires an account creation
- Weight of this mouse is near the back causing imbalance
