    The best gaming mouse out there!

    I have posted this to inform you all of a great mouse. This mouse is called the Razer Boomslang. I am sure that many of you have heard of it, but I also know that some of you have not. I often see people buying the Microsoft Intellimouse with that Intelli eye technology. While it is a great mouse it is far from being the best gaming mouse out there. I do not intend to start an Anti-Microsoft Mice post and I do not want this to turn into an argument over which one is better. All I want is for you gamers to look at this mouse and decide then on a good gaming mouse to buy. I personally have been using my Razer Boomslang 2000 for quite some time now and I love it.I have included a picture of the mouse as well as several links to reviews of it. I hope that you take the time to look them over before making your next mouse purchase. This is not meant to be an ad or to sell the Razer mouse and I am not an employee of Razer or anyone related to them.

    Give me my intellimouse explorer any day of the week. It is everything I ever wanted in a mouse and more.

    I've used both, and I prefer the intelli-eye. The razer just didn't feel right in my hand. I also question how well it's made the mouse 1 button broke with only a few hours of me using it.

    You'll have to pry my Optical out of my cold dead hands before I go back to a ball mouse. My only complaint so far is it does the weird things people complain about in one game (Elite Force); otherwise it is a champ.

    What? Cleaning a mouse? That's for the dark ages! One should never have to clean their mouse. The intelli eye is the best thing to happen to computers since Q3A and UT.

    I like the intellimouse as well but I thought that the Razer was just a better gaming mouse. Plus you shouldnt have to clean your Razer mouse, I havent. The ball itself has a strange gel like coating which does not allow any type of dirt or anything to stick to it. Plus I am using a 3m precision mousing pad so I dont have to worry about mouse pad fibers getting caught in it.

    Explorer Intellieye for me. No more picking up your mouse and moving it back to the center of the mouse pad.

    pick up your mouse? maybe with other ball mouses but with the boomslang i tried on my friends comp i can move around the entire screen without much more than moving the mouse much works just like my logitech mouseman optical i'd take either any day but i'm not so cool about spending double on the boomslang then my mouseman optical
    plus i think it looks cooler

    doesnt it look cool

    I have Intellimouse Explorer, think it's an awesome mouse for UT/Q3A cuz you have the extra two thumb buttons that are great for a Jump/Secondary fire mapping. It's very accurate, and you never have to clean it. Plus it has a cool silver tone and the clear surface lights up red hehehe. Plus I'm a Microsoft Junkie.

    i tried the razor boomslang at best buy. the inward side of my ring finger felt kind of awkward. also, where are you supposed to grip, on the grooves or up the top? i guess i'll stay with my intellimouse explorer thank you very much

    Same here-- I tried the boomslang and it's shape was definitely NOT appealing to me at all. Looks neat, but I have no idea what kind of alien creature's paw/hoof or tentacle it is made to fit comfortably...

    Also, the thing weighs a ton (compared to my Logitech optical and most other mice) so moving it across the mouse surface feels like you're pushing a brick around the desk, whereas my Logitech optical can literally be moved across my bare desktop by blowing on it from almost 6 inches away.

    but what u guys use the PS2 or the USB v. n' what is better with or without the cord..

    thank's

    i use ps2 for my intellimouse explorer. i know that usb is supported but something is wrong with mine and i'm too lazy to figure it out. ps2 works just fine so there is no need to change.
