As if cramming its third-generation optical sensor in the Diamondback
wasn't good enough, Razer
is out to up the ante once more its newly-unveiled Lachesis. Compared to Microsoft's shiny new SideWinder
, this creature touts double the DPI (that's 4,000 here, for those keeping score), and according to Razer, the 3G laser sensor "stops tracking at much lower lift-off levels than any other laser sensor, preventing tracking errors when the device is lifted off its tracking surface." Of course, you'll still be able to switch DPI on-the-fly sans special drivers, and the Ultraslick, Teflon-coated feet ought to glide around effortlessly for a good while. Razer's latest USB gaming mouse
will go on sale globally this October for $79.99, and will be available in Phantom White and Banshee Blue colors.
