Unfortunately the thing broke in 3 days. I almost didn't buy it in the first place due to the reviews of how bad razer is when it comes to product quality. I thought it would be fine and wouldn't happen to me. I was wrong and it broke. It kept pulling down and right to the bottom right corner aggressively. I returned it and went back to trusty logitech. Got the g700s and couldn't be happier.
Razer makes cool products but the reliability of them is not worth it. It's too bad. I would buy again if they stepped up the game in the reliability world. I am very happy with logitech as my g7 wireless mouse lasted me almost 10 years with no issues. My g700s was also half the price. Please step up your game in the quality world razer. Justify the premium price tag and I will come back. You have another 10 years to do so (until my new logitech breaks).
DO NOT BUY THIS MOUSE!
While being a good mouse, over the last 3 years I had several problems with the software on a Mac. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. If you need the programmable buttons, you need often to load the drivers 'cause they don't alway load. The battery life is also miserable; it dies after 2 hours.
BUT THE WORSE PROBLEM just happened this week; I was using the mouse when it suddenly exploded; the battery bulged and the battery door ejected in a puff of white dust! Fortunately, I was able to remove the battery before it became too big. When I contacted Razer for a new battery, they told me that they did not carry spare parts! They pointed me to Amazon UK for a a third party replacement battery. But the battery they suggested is 900 mA; mine is 1100 mA. I was able to find replacement with what looks like an original battery; but only on Ebay from China. Would you buy a battery from China on eBay? In Canada, the law says that a company needs to offer spare parts for at least 7 years. Razer did not offer to replace my mouse that is not wireless anymore. Also, an expensive mouse like that should last at least 5 years; I had before a Logitech MX Revolution that lasted more than 5 years; I only had to replace the battery and I sold it for a good price before buying the Razer. If you want a good mouse, go for Logitech; at least you are going to get decent after sale service.
This is an excellent mouse. It's sold as a gaming device but it can be used in a variety of tasks where precision is needed. Like graphic programs for exemple. It's also a wireless mouse that does not lag and can be used wired as well with the included long braided cable. The configuration software is also excellent and simple to use; it also works flawlessly on Mac. Also, your settings are saved to the cloud, so you can retrieve them on another computer if needed. I would have given the Mamba, 5 stars but for two shortcomings: the scroll wheel does not have two modes (free spinning or ratchet) and I wish it had 2 more configurable buttons (it has 7 buttons). But these are minor points. Overall this is an excellent product.
Ahhh Razer, you know how to package an item. They do an amazing job at that. Sure it looks fancy as hell and has a great visual look and feel, but that means next to nothing if the actual product it self blows overall. And honestly, I think it does.
Hybrid Ability: 2.5/5
The Razer Mamba works on a great premise or idea. Having a high end gaming grade hybrid mouse. It sounds great. Flawless even. An ability to switch out from Wired to Wireless in mere seconds. Sadly however, that is not the case. Switching from Wireless to wired is easy, but the other way around will result in you becoming very frustrated. No matter what you do (Sync the doc with the mouse again, plugin it in and unplug again, put the pc into sleep) You can't get wireless to work, until you restart your PC. I only wish that was the only issue I had with it, however it's not. Whats even more sad is the fact it allows you to go wireless blows your mind if you've never had a gaming wireless mouse before. Before this I didn't think I'd want to play in wireless, I expected bad latency or just not smooth play, but I was wrong! Wireless is so much more freeing, that pull from the cord is gone and you feel like you have way more freedom and control. So the wireless part actually improved my game play. It's to bad I can almost never use that function with out rebooting.
Battery Life: 4/5
The 16 Hour batter Life is highly inaccurate. It's probably more like 12 if you are lucky. Which usually gets you from the start to JUST ABOUT the end of the day. But usually not quite. So I'm not to mad about that. The battery life for me was average or OK so that was fine.
Drivers & Performance: ?/5 Maybe 1?
The Razer Mamba Synapse 2.0 app looks pretty cool at first glance. With the ability to adjust your DPI and have on screen display for when you change your DPI. It's all really nice and has a good amount of customization. Granted in wireless mode it seems to take a while longer to load up when you want to adjust settings (slow either way but slower in wireless). So, at this point of the game I'd give the mouse a solid 4... sadly I can't because this is when ever thing goes south. Randomly the drivers will decide my mouse can only go right to left and not up and down. It won't track on any surface at all or sometimes It will only track on my desk which is brown (my mouse pad is a Razer Destructor) other times the mouse just wont work at all.I've had so many crazy glitches with my mouse spazing out (IN WIRED MODE) that I honestly can't recommend this mouse to anyone.
The teflon feet at the bottom of the mouse are tiny and wear out quick. They also seems to love picking dirt up under them. The second lazer also picks up dirt into it. I don't even eat at my desk so I don't know how it finds it. As with what another reviewer said it "jitter's a lot".
Final Sum Up:
I'm willing to bet most of the errors and issues with this mouse are from bad software drivers and some "ehh" hardware. So while I've had times when the mouse would just never work at all, for the times it does work, it is a pretty good mouse. I say pretty good however, as I have had better mice. I am worried as to go from wired to wireless you have to pull on the cord, which leads me to think it will eventually break (as that's happened with 2+ other mice). I've not contacted razer support at any point so I can't comment on that. All in all this was a very expensive mouse that was probably just a "buying the brand name" sort of deal. In the end I'd probably not buy a Razer again as I don't think their mouse are in all honesty the best mice. However, if your stuck with this, I hope you don't have the issues I did.

The one gripe is the price point. I feel the actual product itself is worth $70-$80 and the packaging makes up the extra cost.
The feel of this mouse is amazing, it is not heavy, nor light, it feels right. the side buttons are very easy to use and accessible in mid "battle". The DPI setting buttons are in a great location for on the fly DPI switching, I use this a lot, specially in BF3 (sniping to tank to jet etc.), and is great for other games so you don't need to change the mouse sensitivity in game, just press the button for a preset DPI and a way you go.
LED lighting is great, simple, and has amazing customization in colors.
Highly recommend this product!
Por el momento lo siento un poco grande y pesado, pero es mas costumbre después de tanto tiempo usando mouses mas pequeños.
Al igual que el anterior la instalación y configuración son rápidas, el software podría ser un poco mas ligero y ágil, pero de cualquier manera no es como que tengas que entrar tan seguido a cambiarlo.
Muy recomendable para alguien en búsqueda de un buen mouse tanto alambrico como inalambrico.
Lo recomiendo a todo aquel que quiere tener un mouse de gama alta gamer es el mejor.
Unfortunately I wanted to use the side buttons as volume, and I couldn't find a way to program them to do that. Although, I was able to make a macro to use them to zoom in and out on webpages.
The battery doesn't last too long, about a day usually.
I tried to do a firmware update once, and it didn't want to work when I followed the instructions. I got annoyed with it and haven't tried since.
Feel: Great for the first few hours of use at one time, eventually leaves your wrist 'rubbing' on the far outside of your hand. If you are not using a plastic/frictionless surface it may add some discomfort.
Utility: I play fps/rps/mmo games requiring rapid and accurate movements. If you are using this mouse TURN OFF MOUSE ACCELLERATION IN WINDOWS. The drivers package DOES change the way that the mouse feels, it becomes very very much accurate to your movements with no lag or skips which is default with the windows mouse drivers. Aside from on the fence comments, this mouse is absolutely perfect for navigation, precision and will not skip. However, in wireless mode, ensure that you turn off the 'sleep' function in the drivers suite from razor. Randomly, this mouse in wireless mode, with sleep on, will have a micro delay to activation if it has been unattended for 30 seconds - 2 minutes.
Price vs performance: This was a tricky one, the mouse retails for 150, has the ability to be wireless (5-8 hours at best) can change the colour of the LEDs and their brightness, however I rarely anymore choose to use it wirelessly. The USB wireless connector is bulky so not useful for a laptop or small work area, and above mentioned, can sometimes have delays if low charge, or not attended.
PLUGGED IN SCORES:
General Use: 9/10
Gaming: 8.5/10 (thumb buttons easily 'fat fingered')
Freedom: 10/10 (cord is fibre mesh, have never had it stick on anything or delay responses)
General Use: 8/10 (5-8 hr use, sleep mode delays, however still super accurate and wont skip)
Gaming: 8/10 (loses charge fast, 5-8 hr max before performance loss)
Freedom: 9.5/10 (ensure mouse isnt too far from USB reciever or you can experience DPI latency)
Good purchase for use, on the fence for cost. Would like to see product in the $80.00 range.
