Boomslang 2000 review
time I think of hardcore PC gaming, the First Person Shooter
genre is the first thing that comes to my mind. It must be
that I love FPS games or maybe the fact that its one of the
few game genres that was actually born in the PC makes me
think in that way.
it is, we have seen how gaming peripherals have been improved
in the last year, not only that the PC gaming community is
growing everyday but also the introduction of faster ways of
communication of the PC with external peripherals such as USB
makes manufacturers life easier.
my point here is that a racing games fan can get a force
feedback wheel and a flight simulator games fan can get a good
joystick but what with First Person Shooters??
have been released a few peripherals such as Microsoft’s
SideWinder Dual Strike that
have tried to replace the good old keyboard/mouse combo, and
although they have got some innovative ideas it’s very
improbable that an experienced Quake gamer will want to change
his way of playing, so, if the solution isn’t going a new
way, why not improving the old one everyone likes?
exactly the focus of kärna,
the manufacturers of the Razer Boomslang 1000 & 2000
mouse. We won’t get into much detail about the device name
but once thing you should know is that the number of the model
of the mouse you get reflects the resolution it is capable of.
your usual Microsoft/Logitech mouse resolution can go up to
300-400dpi, the Boomslang uses a special technique for
achieving 1000 or 2000dpi depending on which model you get.
Kärna guys were kind enough for sending me one of the 2000
models for testing, I was really interested on how could my
gaming experience be improved.
I first saw the package of the Razer Boomslang the only thing
you could see on my face was this smile I just couldn’t
change. Overall, the package (which is pretty similar to a
typical cookies tin) and instructions reflect the high quality
product the Razer is; actually I can bet you will show the
package and stuff to your friends when they come over.
I had it in my hands I could really appreciate that it feels
pretty huge compared to my previous MS Intellimouse. It’s
much heavier also and looks prettier.
