Razer Announces Special Edition Abyssus with Chrome Mirror Finish

Razer has taken a bucket of bling and poured it all over the company's Abyssus gaming mouse for a brand new rodent, the Abyssus Mirror Special Edition. As the name suggests, the new mouse sports a black chrome mirror finish on the outside, while the inside retains all the features of the original Abyssus, including a 3.5G infrared sensor.

"The black chrome mirror finish of the Razer Abyssus Mirror Special Edition adds a certain stylistic sensibility to the desktop," said Robert 'Razerguy' Krakoff, president, Razer USA. "The Razer Abyssus Mirror is designed for gamers that prefer a slick glossy aesthetic finish. It also serves as the ideal complement to other reflective peripherals, such as the Razer Lycosa Mirror Special Edition keyboard."



South paws are still in luck thanks to an ambidextrous design, while other features include a 3500dpi sensor, 1000Hz Ultrapolling with a 1ms response time, on-the-fly sensitivity adjustments, 60-120 inches per second and 15g of acceleration, three independently programmable "Hypersponse" buttons, and a scroll wheel with 24 individual click positions.

The special edition rodent will go on sale in May for $50.

EEEE, mirror finish on it?  Aren't they a company for gamers, don't they know that a plastic mirrored surface is not ideal for grip?  Also, is that 24 click scroll wheel a gimmick?

No the 24 click scroll wheel is not a gimmick. It is actually pretty close to the standard for high end mice. Of course, I rather my Logitech since I can turn the clicks off with the touch of a button.

Mind explaining what it is?  There is absolutely no info given on it on that Razer site.

Go through the listed specs at the bottom of the article.  But Razer's site does list some of the specs (3500DPI max three fixed setting infrared sensor, 1000Hz polling/1ms response time, 'hyper response' buttons).  Just the 15g and 60~120 inches per second is not listed. 

I use a Logitech G9x mouse, which is another high end wired gaming mouse.  It uses a 200~5700DPI five varible setting laser sensor, 1000Hz polling, 30g, 165 inches per second.  It also has a three way scroll wheel click (down, left, right) with click or smooth scrolling action.

As for the number of clicks on the scroll wheel, 24 is nothing fancy and actually in the standard range found on all mice with scroll wheels.  The clicks are the number of little clicks you feel while spinning the scroll wheel, with the number being how many clicks it takes to spin the wheel one complete revolution.  They are better for some things then a free spinning wheel since every click is a exact distance (or change of weapon for example).  Free spinning wheels have no clicks and are better for smooth motion (such as scrolling smooth up and down a doc or web page).  Free wheels can also be flicked and will continue to spin, allowing you to cover a much larger distance with one motion.

lol i don't see a point in making a special edition mice that just adds a gloss finish... I almost never even look at my mouse so the mirror finish is not going to be a selling point for me and i don't like a smooth plastic feel if that's how its going to fell of course.

And ya i like that you can turn off hte clicks on my Logitech mouse :D

Inspector, gotta agree with you. I've always liked Logitech mice the most of any I've used.

I actually like the fact that I can use smooth or rough grip on mine. I like the smooth grip personnally, it is just a touch soft and tacky. The rough grip is really hard and and actually feels like you have less of a solid grip. I also use the max weight, since I like my mouse to feel heavy and solid.

HAH!  I didn't know that that is what they were referencing!  I thought they meant a type of macro feature, which is what I couldn't understand...

They try all these different gimmicks like mirrors and smoke, with 50 buttons!

Why doesn't one of these companies try making different sizes. So people with hands bigger than a Chinese girl can use them!

I have been looking for a mouse for a while now. Finding one that has a functionality with various programs without the micros failing is one issue. yet every one I look at is just to short and forces the mouse to the front of the fingers leaving nothing for the palm to rest on.
