Bitten by a Lachesis

Ouch it hurts. I have just been bitten by a Lachesis. What is a Lachesis you may ask? Its the largest pit viper in the world. Oddly enough, i'm enjoying being bitten. Hurts, but enjoyable. But wait, its not really the snake that bit me. Its the new gaming mouse i got. The Razer Lachesis. Where does it hurt you may ask? The wallet. Man is it painful. The thing cost me RM200+. Ouch.

Short introduction to Razer. Razer is a company which makes premium gaming equipments for professional gamers worldwide. I know some of you may think, Professional gamers? Theres such a thing? Mind you, there is, and they get paid for playing games. Professional gamers are the athletes of the new era of sports-eSports. Razer makes professional gaming keyboards, mouses, sound cards and headsets. Their products are very well-made and very expensive. Your paying for what you buy, so I'm not that fussy. Hehe.

Anyway, like I said, I got a Razer gaming mouse. The Lachesis, its the best mouse in the current product portfolio of Razer. Whats so special about it? Well, for one thing. It has 9 keys on the mouse alone. 9 keys man. How many does yours have? Hehe. Another thing is the DPI, it has sensitivity which you can adjust up to 4000 DPI. Normal mouses have less than 1000 DPI if not mistaken. Another feature that i like is the Profile selection. You can customize what all the 9 keys of the mouse can do, and you can set specific profiles for specific programs. Like when i launch FireFox, I have one button which goes back a page, a button which opens another tab, and another which refreshes the page. Very cool. Expensive, but worth it.

EDIT: Forgot to add the part where i got the mouse pad too. Well, i originally wanted to get the Destructor gaming mouse pad, which is the preferred mouse pad for the Lachesis from what i saw on the Razer website. But my mum got an eXactmat instead. Still cool either way. The eXactMat is great too. It has two surfaces. The X Control for low sensitivity games such as DotA and Starcraft, another surface is the X Speed for high sensitivity games such as CS. What i like about it, is that it comes with a handrest with memory comformance. Meaning the handrest will change its shape according to you wrist and it wont change shape unless you delibrately squeeze it. Another thing which i like is they made the pad so that it has these "feet" on them. They keep the pad in its position so that it doesnt move about when you are gaming.

That should be all about the Lachesis and eXactMat for now. Now i shall poison everyone with some photos of my Lachesis and eXactMat. Next target: Razer Lycosa Mirror edition gaming keyboard. After my PS3 and laptop that is.
