  • Razer Copperhead

    Hey! I have made the Razer Copperhead mouse for about a month now and so far love it (after upgrading to the newest firmware anyway) and wanted to see if anyone else uses it and what they thought about it. For those who know nothing about it here are some details:



    2000 DPI Laser Engine Powered by Razer Precision™

    1000 Hz Ultrapolling™ with 1 ms response time as compared with 125Hz/8 ms response time used by other conventional gaming mice

    32KB Onboard Memory Powered by Razer Synapse™

    7 independently programmable buttons optimized with Razer’s Hyperesponse™ technology for ultra tactile button feedback and maximum actions-per-minute (APM) gameplay

    Zero-Acoustic Ultraslick™ Teflon feet

    16 bit data path, as compared to 8 bit and 12 bit data paths used by other conventional mice

    High speed motion detection, up to 45ips and 20g / Over 7080 frames per second

    Always-On™ mode pioneered by Razer™ - the laser engine sensor never powers down to provide instantaneous response at all times during gameplay

    Award winning Razer™ drivers featuring On-the-Fly Sensitivity™ DPI adjustment pioneered by Razer

    Size: 5.04" length x 2.5" width x 1.54" height

    GlowPipe™ non-slip side rails

    Ergonomic ambidextrous design

    Ultra large non-slip rubber coated mouse buttons

    Gold plated USB connector for maximum conductivity

    7 foot, lightweight, non-tangle cord


    The only downside I have found to it is that the Windows acceleration cant be turned up over the default 6 (or 5 I cant remember) without any source based game becoming jittery due to the sensitivity of the mouse. Also a high sensitivity mouse pad makes a huge difference with the laser and high MHz of the mouse. I used the Razer Diamondback for about 6 months prior to upgrading to this one and now use the Diamondback at work (slowly gaining accuracy with snap of wrist :row__735: ).

      I'll be upgrading to a Copperhead when my Diamondback finally dies. I've LOVED my Diamondback.

          Didnt mean it as PR just info :row__536:

          It took a little while to get used to the Copperhead over the Diamondback. I think it was more because of the optical to laser switch. With the optical you can "hover" the mouse to move it back to a central point on the pad but the laser is a bit more sensitive so "picking" up the mouse becomes a thing of the past. Also the buttons on the Diamondback are placed much differently than on the Copperhead. On the Copperhead there is a grip on the sides like on the Diamondback but instead of the buttons being part of this strip they are below it.

            I don't even run my diamonback at full sensitivity, so i see no reason to upgrade to a faster mouse until this one starts crapping out. I've been with razer for a long time, owning their original product, the Razer Boomslang, since 1998. I still use it on my office computer.

            The main reason i'll never use another mouse - the on-the-fly sensitivity change. No other brand allows such fine adjustments of the sensitivity on-the-fly like Razer products. I think the new copperhead can actually store profiles, right? So you could preset sensitivity for shotgun, machine gun, turret, etc..and change your sensitivity even faster.

            I also own the RazerMat and use the sensitivity side, and it does make a huge difference. I especially like that it is a solid surface because I have a corner desk and the joint flows over where the mouse goes and I'd have a little bump there if not for the solid surface of the pad.

              Yeah it has 5 onboard profiles. It is nice cause you only have to load the drivers on one PC to set it up then if you plug it into another PC (say you are going to a tournament) you can user the different profiles and settings without a driver install. I was looking at the ExactMat. Looked pretty sweet. The Razer Trancula (sp?) keyboard comes out begining of April (standard version) and looks freakin sweet, will be about $99. They have a video and details on cnet. The advanced version of it comes out end of this year and has an LCD display on it but I haven't seen any pics of it.

                The version with the OLED display will also be $300 according to the press releases. No friggin way I'm paying $300 for a keyboard! I bought a Saitek Eclipse a few months ago and have been very happy with it.

                  I could never go back to a regular keyboard. Ever since I changed to the Microsoft Natural way back in 1996 or so i can't stand the regular layout. So for gaming I use the Belkin Nostromo n52.

                    I looked at the copperhead when they announced it, thought it looked cool. However, I don't particularly like the placement of the side buttons; they look too far toward the back of the mouse. Right now I use one of the M$ intellipoints, and the side buttons are right about where my thumb sits- no reaching or such. If I could get a look at a copperhead in a store or something, it would be nice, but no one around here that I know of carries one.

                      Your Best Buy doesn't carry one? I live in a pretty small city (Augusta) and our Best Buy has one on display. Why don't you get out of your sheltered life and find some real life friends who may own one and be able to show you :row__523:

                        I thought my Best Buy would have one, but I haven't seen it there yet.

                        And real life friends cost money.

                          I'm not talking about an escort service :row__642: None of them would have a copperhead. At least not one made by Razer.

                            I agree, sounds like an advertisement. That being said, are they really all that much better? I have a microsoft wireless mouse and it seems to do the trick just fine. I've eyed the razers and keep wondering, do they really, truely make a difference?

                              I'm sure Bubba will back me up on this but the Diamondback is a huge difference over other mice that I atleast have used and the Copperhead is a huge difference over the Diamondback. Dont get me wrong a lot of people who have seen and tried the Copperhead hate it because it is too sensitive, but it was exactly what I was looking for. If you have a normal 400dpi mouse with Windows sensitivity not turned on then you would HATE either of these mice for a while until you got used to it.
