[Amazon.ca] Razer Viper Ultimate Wireless Mouse + Dock [$163.99] Lowest Price Yet

Amazon has the Razer Viper Ultimate + Dock on sale for $163.99 and this is the lowest price yet according go camel^3 and PC Part Picker. This is one of the lightest wireless mouse around and has garnered a lot of praise and a big following. It's always been quite pricey, most likely due do its newer release date and popularity.

Putting aside arguments about the brand or merits in paying this much for a mouse, many claim this to be one of the best wireless gaming mice to get right now, even according to someone like Rocket Jump Ninja.

The standard dockless (??) version is also on sale for $159.28 but I think the extra $4.71 (+taxes) is worth getting the charging dock for.

I just grabbed it myself and will give some feedback after I get it and had a few hours to play. Upgrading from a G305 + AAA Li-ion battery mod. I have large hands and prefer finger gripping my mice so this will be an interesting upgrade.

One of the main reason why I decided to go ahead and still give it a try is due to its onboard memory.

You can set your custom DPIs and etc., uninstall Synapse and never have to run it again which I'll be doing.

Razer's driver is garbage, and that description is overly generous, because it's an insult to garbage.

I had razer before but stopped using them sure to a lot of razer products I had failed.

I currently have Logitech G900. How does this mouse compare to it? My G900 gets interference issues from my phone and its battery life isn't that great, lasting 2-3 days.

And they won't let you buy replacement batteries. Gotta go aftermarket. Done with Logitech.

Justification: A keyboard (an equally common HCI device) can cost you north of $400. So, by comparison (kinda), $185 isn't that unreasonable.

That's one of the major reasons why I'm sticking with the Performance MX.

i mean, even some of the more expensive keyboards dont cost anywhere near what you're stating so I dont quite see what you're saying rofl.

Good price but LMB and RMB will probably develop a squeaking/flexing problem. I got 2 before I gave up.

I own the wired version of this mouse, got it after my SteelSeries Sensei Raw developed scroll wheel issue (by far my favourite mouse still).
I swore off Razer after my Imperator developed a double-click issue after less than 1 year use but decided to give this a go after the reviews from RocketJumpNinja plus the fact that this mouse uses the new optical switches for the 2 main buttons.

Mouse is very lightweight and IMO better designed since the shell doesn't need to have holes to achieve this so less chance of gunk falling into the mouse over time.
It is pretty small for me though plus I'm a claw-grip user so be advised if you got bigger hands. If you're a claw-grip user, you may want to try it out before you buy it. The Sensei shape better fits the claw-grip style IMO.

Software is still garbage but luckily there is onboard memory so run Synapse to put in all your settings then uninstall if you want.

Overall, solid mouse only complaint for me is the size and Razer's sketchy durability. We'll see how this holds up over time.
