Razer does it again with a design change to their popular gaming mouse for a more comfortable grip to your gaming and general mouse use with their customary precision laser sensor.
The Razer Imperator is the latest precision gaming mouse from the popular gaming peripheral company that encompasses a new ergonomic design with the tried and true laser sensor that Razer customarily uses. The 5600 dots per inch precision 3.5G laser sensor is a true precision laser sensor for accurate and smooth mouse response.
The Razer Imperator is designed for a comfortable grip with your hand in the usual position for mouse use with a thumb indent that is the main feature. The entire design in made to have the mouse nestled in your hand while your gaming and is a nice comfortable mouse in its main design.
The Imperator has a few main features on the outside with a rubberized skin over the top and out to the two top buttons for a grip that works well in gaming. The mouse has the two normal finger buttons, the scroll wheel that has a push button and the two side buttons along with two extra buttons on the top.
The two top buttons are behind the scroll wheel and are assigned as sensitivity adjustment for default button assignments but are fully programmable. The two side buttons are not only programmable like all the other buttons on the mouse but are movable forward and back.
The side buttons are on a movable tray inside the mouse along a slot on the side using the bottom slide button using a four click positioning system. This means you can adjust the two side buttons forward or back for optimum comfort while using the mouse for these often used side buttons.
The bottom of the mouse also has another feature in the profile button that allows you to use the Razer Imperator configuration program to create profiles for gaming or program use. You can assign different buttons and the scroll wheel on the program to perform different functions in various games using profiles.
Each button or the scroll wheel movements can be assigned a different function and then saved as an individual profile so you can switch profiles on the fly using the bottom button. The button will switch between whatever profiles you want to create with up to 5 profiles for various programs and setups.
Profiles are nice when going from gaming and wanting certain buttons to perform various functions like knifing or weapon selection in first person shooters. Programs like Photoshop or Dreamweaver are nice to have setups where common tasks are assigned to the mouse buttons like Put and Get operations for the front and back buttons working with web pages and servers.
The Razer Imperator profile system works easily in an automatic mode where launching the program like a games exe file will change profiles to the one you set up for that program. Profiles switch automatically when a program is launched or by using the bottom profile button so if you do launch the program it will switch and you can switch it using the profile whether you’re in that program or not.
The Razer Imperator also has the usual, for Razer, ability to change the sensor polling rate and speed across the screen using simple changes in the program that runs in your task tray or using On-The-Fly Sensitivity. I found the top two buttons on the Imperator to be a nice way to change the cursor speed across the screen so you have a quick way to change things while in any game or program.
The Razer Imperator works well just like all the other mice listed on http://TheTechInsider for smooth consistent gameplay and cursor control whether in gaming or surfing the internet. Programs like Adobe or Corel image editing also has easy and smooth control for precise editing so the Razer Imperator works well when you’re not gaming.
The Razer Imperator is yet another great performing precision gaming mouse with the contour feel for a very comfortable mouse whether your gaming or doing other computer functions. I highly recommend the Razer Imperator for a great high performance gaming mouse that is very comfortable as well as top notch performance.
