With the belief that two is better than one, Razer today introduced its all new 4G Dual Sensor System. Sounds high tech, doesn't it? Razer's dual sensor technology takes advantage of both an optical and laser sensor to improve tracking accuracy, which the company jammed into its latest edition Mamba and Imperator mice.

"The 4G Dual Sensor System combines the best of both worlds - an optical and a laser sensor, to deliver twice the level of tracking precision," Razer explains. "By allowing calibration of mouse to the surface you’re using, it is primed to optimally track your swipes more rapidly and accurately for the best in-game performance you can actually feel. It also lets you determine the cutoff height for tracking to stop when the mouse is lifted from the surface. This is especially important for gamers who pick up their mice to accommodate wide swiping motions, such as low sensitivity FPS gamers."


The more expensive of the two -- and also Razer's flagship rodent -- the new Mamba mouse boasts a 6400dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, 1000Hz Ultrapolling / 1ms response time, up to 200 inches per second / 50g acceleration, and multi-color lighting for $130.

Coming in a bit cheaper is the new Razer Imperator built around the new dual sensor system. This one runs $80 and includes the same 6400dpi rating, seven independently programmable buttons, and a rubberized contoured thumb grip.

I would think the 2 lasers would conflict but if Razer has managed to pull it off great.

I hear they make some nice peripherals.

I so want Dave & Marco to review this, I wanna see how it does in the real world.

I also want Razer to come out with a wired version so I don't have to charge it 24/7.

one optical sensor and one laser. I would love to know how it works with the two sensors. I am sure there are some crazy mathematical calculations.

@Taylor I agree I know wired mice have a little bit of drag on the wire but I hate wasting batteries or having to charge the thing.

I have both Razer Lycossa keyboard and and Imperator mouse [wired version] they both work rather well. What I noticed from the pic is are the DPI buttons no longer on the top of the new version ! looks like they may be on the side.Nice to see that Razer is picking up the 'trend' with having the rubberized thumb grip.The mouse I am current using these days is a CM Spawn.which I  like as well.Pretty happy at this time using either one.

I have the Original Mamba and I love it! a new and improved one i'll definitely be purchasing this soon. The Mamba is both wired or wireless depending on the user both options are available. The wire that powers the receiver base unplugs from it and plugs into the mouse itself when battery power is low, that way you can recharge during sleepytime that way no drop in gaming. it also charges the battery while its wired so after a while you can change back to wireless.

I havnt used a razer mouse in about a year, but i love their keyboards. I use a lycosa keyboard and Carcharias headset that won in a constest about 2 years ago and they still work great. Usally pretty confident when i buy with razer or logitech that i am getting a great mouse for my money.

It would be cool if david and marco could review that razer laptop they have in develop.

PS: Razer has a preview of their Star wars old republic gear and a contest to win some free gaming gear.
