Razer Spectre Gaming Mouse - Gaming mouse with a StarCraft II Theme
 

Gripping the Spectre reminds me of the Roccat Pyra. It's a small mouse and the rear part isn't really shaped for ergonomics, but you only really grip it from the sides and the main buttons, so none of this matters. What's important with this grip though is the lightness of the mouse and also the movements, and on this sector the Spectre is really good. It glides smoothly and quietly over the mousepad.

As for tracking, it's what you'd expect from the latest generation laser gaming mouse. It's very accurate and we couldn't make it skip during the gaming. We also tried using the force adjustment, but couldn't notice much difference. The thing is, you get used to the required button force awfully fast, and stop noticing it.

Conclusion


PROS 
  • Software
  • Light weight
  • Force adjustment


  • CONS 
  • No DPI switching
  • Price
  • Overall shape
  • Award
    Bronze Award!


    So then, overall the Spectre is a solid performer. Under the SC2-themed casing there's the latest generation Razer electronics with a 5600 DPI sensor and while gaming we couldn't make it skip a beat. Also the software side of things is again very good, Razer really knows how to make drivers for gaming peripheral.

    When it comes to the shape, it once again definitely isn't for everyone. Like I said earlier on, if you just use the mouse in claw-grip it doesn't matter an awful lot how it's shaped. Still, in longer use I found the sharp angles on the rear part annoying. Maybe my hand is just a bit too small as the back of the mouse kept hitting my palm every now and then, and with all the corners there, it isn't a nice sensation.

    And then there's the price - 80 dollars. Sure, buying new peripheral is always an investment in use comfort and they don't get out-dated like for example graphic cards. But still, I'm left with a feeling that programmable leds and adjustable click force just aren't enough to make up for the price, not unless you're a die hard StarCraft-fan.
