Razer Imperator gets adjustable side buttons
Razer on Tuesday introduced its latest gaming mouse, the Imperator. Designed specifically to give comfort to right-handed users, the ergonomic mouse's design is optimized for both palm and fingertip gamers. To this end, the Imperator is the first to sport side buttons that are adjustable and slide on a track to let users find the best position for their thumbs.
Apart from the design, the wired mouse has an integrated 5,600dpi laser sensor for greater accuracy. The sensor enables the mouse to move at up to 200 inches per second with 50G acceleration, along with 1,000Hz sampling and a 1ms response time. Sensitivity can be adjusted at any time. Razer's Synapse onboard memory is integrated, while the seven buttons are programmable to suit a gamer's needs.
The Razer Imperator will ship in the US late in December, priced at $80, and works with both Mac OS X and Windows PCs.
