Razer’s Viper mice series is regarded as one of the best on the market – for good reason. High-performing, lightweight and customizable, these mice are ideal for a variety of gaming styles. And now, Razer has extended its Viper family with a shiny new member – Razer Viper V2 Pro, an ultra-lightweight and extremely precise gaming mouse, that as usual, costs a pretty penny.
Is Viper V2 Pro worth almost $150? Take a gander at its specs, and decide for yourself.
Razer Viper V2 Pro Features
- Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor
- Sensitivity up to 30,000 DPI
- Gen 3 Optical Mouse Switches
- 59 g ultra-lightweight design
- Wireless USB dongle + USB dongle adapter
- Smart Tracking, Motion Sync, Asymmetric Cut-off
Lighter Than Ever
The new Viper mouse is 20% lighter than its predecessor, weighing only 59 grams. The previous model was already incredibly light, so this is quite a feat. Despite its ultra-lightweight design, the Viper V2 Pro has a better battery life and comes with a low-power mode that your mouse can enter once the battery percentage hits whatever number you set for the mode.
But the most interesting feature is the new sensor called Focus Pro 30K. This optical sensor has a DPI of up to 30,000 and a resolution accuracy of 99.8% so the mouse is extremely precise and fast. To top it off, the Viper V2 Pro has smart features boosting its efficiency with Smart Tracking, Motion Sync and Asymmetric Cut-off, with the latter being significantly enhanced compared to the previous model. The New Viper now supports 26 levels of cut-off, providing great control and precision over setting the lift-off and landing distance. For comparison purposes, the older mouse had three levels.
Speaking of older models, while most gamers loved the previous mice series, we’ve seen some complaints about the clicks feeling a bit flimsy. The new model should fare better here too, thanks to the new Gen 3 Optical Mouse Switches that are rated for 90 million clicks (which is 25% better than the previous mouse) and promise no double-click issues nor debounce delays.
As expected, the new and improved Viper mouse comes with a high price tag: $149 USD. Is it worth it? Well, it depends on what you’re looking for. If you need a reliable, all-purpose mouse, definitely not; there are plenty of much cheaper mice out there for that purpose. But if you want a high-performing, ultra-lightweight wireless mouse that you can whip out during the competition, the Viper V2 Pro might indeed be worth it.
