The Razer Copperhead 2000 dpi mouse owns this one.

#6

Not a bad mouse… i like the 5 buttons =)

#7

where is the podcast?

#8

Woah. The folks at Amazon really didn’t like this…

I almost bit on it, but looks like it ain’t happening.

#9

Woot, not good. This mouse has problems with delays and lags. Bad thing if you are playing a game trying to kill bad guys and they get you before the mouse responds.

Matthew has the weekends off

#11

bought one like a year ago.
drains batteries like nobody’s business.
then it started being finicky on tracking.
first kensington item I didn’t love.
don’t use it anymore.
ymmv.

Matthew and the podcast always get the weekend off.

Rumor has it that Matthew is out celebrating the one-year anniversary of the podcast !!!

#13

Podcasts are only during weekdays. =)

#14

no podcasts on the weekends…woot gods need days off too.

#15

Does this work with other wireless setups?
Specifically the previous woot kensington kb/mouse setup. Most people who would by this for pc would already have a wireless setup and would be upgrading thier mice right? Or still have a ps/2 kb?

#16

so cheap, yet so useless. the damn thing looks REALLY uncomfortable too, although i guess that can be expected with tiny wireless mouses. i would recommend getting a decent sized mouse for portable wireless use, unless you dont mind getting carpal tunnel while you’re young…

#17

optical mouse - built in charger = g’nite all!

#18

I have (and use) this mouse. The feel is nice, but I have large hands, I imagine it wouldn’t “fit” someone with small hands. More importantly - it chews through batteries like candy. With heavy daily use (10-12 hours since I work on my computer all day) I can get no more than 4 weeks from the batteries. Hmmmmm…maybe that’s reasonable, now that I think about how much use that really is.

#19

it is wireless so it doesn’t matter the DPI you wil get lagg in the response

I hope you use rechargables? My last woot kensington kb/mouse purchase had a reciever that was a batter recharger, so when either the kb or mouse gets low on batt power i just switch them from the receiver.
