RAZER Black 1 x Wheel USB Optical/Laser 6400 dpi Imperator 2012 Expert Ergonomic Gaming Mouse


It seems to work, at least for the first day

Impossible to register at - it is said that product with that serial number was already registered. So ; 1. I cannot register myself to get information about drivers updates ; 2. It is possible that I got a used...

Fantastic Mouse


I read some reviews where this was said to be "cheap" and "flimsy". I have beat it half to death, and there are no ill affects. I think they changed how the wrapped wire is attached, as I don't foresee a fraying problem. Last thing, there are two sets...

I read a few reviews regarding this mouse, and I will address what was "wrong" with it ; 1. Adjustable side buttons. Mine adjust and stick in place. They don't move a millimeter forward or sideways. I moved to this from a Logitech MX518, so I want my...

I am not going to call this a flaw of the mouse, but I had to put a piece of tape where the thumb goes as it was a bit slippery for me. It is beautiful, but not functional for me, hence the friction tape. This isn't a "flaw" in the mouse, just my...

After One Year


A great buy from Razer despite the cable.

Great mouse, never had a problem with it so far. Fits very comfortably and the blue LEDs have a very nice glow to them

Only con would be the braided fiber sleeve on the wire. After so much use the fiber has torn and frayed at both ends. And it seems rather stiff

Speed & Precision


You get what you pay for.

Sleek, adjustable side buttons, cool LED lights, 6400DPI, with 1000mhz polling rates equal awsome precision. Awsome shipping from newegg as always

This is not really such a con of the mouse itself but rather games in general that have built in mouse acceleration options that tend to screw mice of this nature with high dpi settings. Some games almost make this mouse somewhat of a bother at times...

My first Razer


I have a fingertip grip. This mouse works with my grip although I find myself going between a palm grip (what the mouse is recommended for) and fingertip grip. I'm not sure why people complain about the mouse jumping when it is lifted from the table...

Comfortable - Buttons are contoured and feel good ; Silent scroll wheel ; Moveable thumb buttons ; Precise (most precise money can buy?) ; Razor synapse onboard memory ; Drivers/software and DPI adjustment

At first, my ring finger felt awkward holding the mouse but that is probably because I my last mouse was a tiny laptop mouse. Now it feels fine ; Expensive - maybe a Death Adder could have suited me - especially because I can't image using a DPI...

Sweet mouse :)


I went from a Logitch MX518 to this (Imperator). I got rid of my MX518 because my little dapple dachshund ate all the mouse cord, lol. So far this mouse is the BEST mouse I have ever owned. The control is awesome. I am doing much, much better in my...

1. Cool lights, lol. :) ; 2. Very form fitting to my hand ; 3. Adjustable side buttons are great ; 4. dual sensors are sweet ; 5. Software is very easy to use ; 6. Very smooth gliding and awesome control

None so far. Best mouse I have ever owned

RAZER Black 1 x Wheel USB Optical/Laser 6400 dpi Imperator 2012 Expert Ergonomic Gaming Mouse


If you've never used a gaming mouse, you need to try one. Just do it. You will love it.

I didn't believe that I would like a gaming mouse any better than the old logitech mouse I got for cheap, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The instant I put my hand down, I fell in love. It just moves better in my hand than a generic mouse, and I...

I had tracking problems when I picked up the mouse and quickly set it down. Fixed by disabling the vertical distance measurement but I shouldn't have had to, it lost one of its unique features that way ; I also had times when my mouse would drift while...

Razer needs QC


Razer makes very accurate and responsive mice, but sadly everything Razer makes is also incredibly cheaply made and expensive.

Very precise, programmable DPI buttons are nice. Cool glowing symbol. Works great

I am currently on my second imperator, the first one died after 3 months, and I am yet to see if this second imperator will last any longer

over rated


Gonna RMA it cuz of the unwanted light show and Spring for the Black Mamba instead

Looks ; 7 keys ; precise ; Razer product

I don,t know why people say it is comfortable. I1 bought this as a FPS mouse being that I only had the Razer Naga for my MMO games ; It is way to light for my liking. It feels half the weight of the Naga. The 2 side buttons do not feel naturally...

Very Nice for Gaming


My brother had bought the Razer Imperator when it first came out and I really liked it for my gaming hobby and when Razer came out with the dual sensor one, I just said eh why not and bought it. This was a MAJOR upgrade and a very needed upgrade from...

Great Mouse, very responsive for all your gaming needs and the on-the-fly sensitivity changing is very handy for when I am playing either a strategy game or a first person shooter ; The ability to be able to lift off the mousepad and still be moving...
