Cool Pics of my new Razer Copperhead mouse

Just got it from NCIX last week. The design is gorgeous, but the ergonomics will take some getting used to as this is no ordinary mouse. It's very light and best used with your fingers - people who use their palm will not like this (and would probably prefer the DeathAdder). With the Copperhead, you either love it, or hate it.

I most definitely love mine :D

Do these require the dreaded "claw" method of use?

There was a write-up in one of the mags complaining about the crippling effects of long term use of that mouse method..... :)

(They did say though that it was indeed more effective in fps gaming)

Well, this isn't a palm mouse, so you'll have to use your wrist/fingers to control it...but you do not need to "claw" the mouse, and wrist movement is kept to a minimum because of the high sensitivity.

Of course it is man! It has 2 side. 1 for control and 1 for speed. It's actually more BS than anything else but still some might prefer one side to the other. I used to use control and since i tried speed (which is just about 2 weeks ago lol) i only use speed now.

Yea more the bs part is what I figured it'd be.I know 20 - 30 bucks plus shipping so what give it a try,lots of different brands which ones don't suck.I'd be into the speed type.So you think its better than the desktop eh ?
