Page 8 - Razer Abyssus
If you want the best performance, it's time to gear up. In part two of our gaming accessories roundup, we're checking out the best gaming mice that can give you the killer edge.
If simple is your thing, then the Abyssus is the mouse for you. The Abyssus is a three button mouse, plus scroll wheel. That’s it. No fancy readouts, no endless numbers of toggles, no LCD screen and certainly no replaceable grips. It’s got two big buttons and a clickable scroll wheel and that nice Razer satin finish. But it’s still a gaming mouse.
Flip it over and you’ve got a low-tech DPI adjustment with a sliding switch between 450, 1800 and 2500 DPI. There’s also a switch for choosing the USB polling speed between 125Hz and 1,000Hz. To be honest, the polling switch had no discernible effect as far as we could tell.
The Abyssus is thankfully an ambidextrous mouse, so left and right handers will find it just the same to use. The only downside we found with this model is the cord is that nice old school plastic wrapped style. We would have loved it to be braided to stop that horrible drag during tense shootouts. It may sound like a mouse that your mum might use, but really, it’s comfortable, works nicely and there’s little bad to say about it. Available from Razer, retailing for $69.APC rating: 7/10
