    So I recently bought the Razer Diamond Back gaming mouse. Here is my review on it:

    Looks: It is a good looking mouse. It has a matt back finish that looks nice and durable! What more could you ask for in a mouse?! Comparing this to the old Razer Diamond Back, this new one looks a lot nicer. though Razer's style has changed a lot since 2005 and 2016.

    Chroma Lighting: The chroma lighting is amazing! It's obvious why Razer is know to do the best chroma lighting. You can also customise it. From reactive, to wave, to static, to breathing to a few more. It's definitely a very attractive feature.

    Performance: The performance in the good as well. You can customise just about every aspect of the dpi. I generally keep it around 1800 dpi. Although it's cool that you are actually able to go up 16,000 dpi, to me and probably most people, it's completely over kill and unnecessary. Althoguh it is good to have bragging rights :D! The tracking is excellent... most of the time... I think. When it's working it has excellent tracking. No problem. Now it's only happened twice in about two weeks but it has happened. It just stops working for like 10 seconds where it just glitches out. Don't know why. Now this may just be my computer, I don't know, but I started looking it up and it's happened to a few people. But really it's not a big issue. Vary rare occurrence.

    Feel: It feels very, very, very nice. It has a very nice texture the whole thing. Very smooth. There's a two rubber grips at the bottom of both sides which is an extra bonus and the scroll wheel is one of the best I've ever used. The lights don't get hot which I've experienced on 1 or 2 mice and it's very comfortable. One problem though. If you move the mouse very quickly there is a chance you'll stub your pinkie. The problem is that your pinkie is kind of sharing the rubber grip with another finger and if you move very quickly it might slip, hit the mouse pad and may stub your pinkie. Other than that it's fine.

    Overall: overall this mouse is amazing. If your not sure whether you should get this mouse, get it! You wont regret it. Also right now it's on sale on amazon so....

    But razer, you did a great job. Be proud. I love this mouse!

    I definitely love the Razer Diamondback as well. I used to use the Orochi and a bit of the Naga. After I switched to Diamondback, it did not fail me at all.

    could you please to check width in mm in real (widthest spot button side to side from above), pages of Razer and rewievs says its "60 mm / 2.64 in (Width)", but 2,64 isnt 60 mm. Im comparing it to old Diamondback and Lachesis I was (and am) using and deciding if buy it or not. Smaller hands, claw mixed with fingertips grip.

    Thx :)

    Glad you found your perfect mouse. I can say all the razer mice i have have a nice feel to it. But most comfortable with the mamba. Hvn't tried the diamondback yet though. Thanks for sharing your experience mate!
  5. I tried the new Diamondback at the store a while back for 3min. To be honest, I am disappointed. It is crazily thin, and way too narrow at the bottom. While I am holding in, I felt like I am holding an anorexic mice. The two stripes at the side almost felt like the rib cage of a mice. I got a small hand and couldn't handle big mice, and this mice is still way too thin for me. Although, I think the agility of using the mouse is there for my grip, but comfort is not. There's almost no soul bonding between me and the mice.

    Another disappointment is the scroll wheel. It is too loud and almost felt like it is having a lot of unwanted friction. The main buttons have good tactile feedback, but I still think the travel distant is a bit far compared to other Razer mice. This can be good or bad depending on the user. But for someone who need to spam click, this isn't too good.

    The side buttons is another disappointment. The quality of the clicks are really lousy. It almost felt very cheap as when you press the back button, the forward button moves as well.

    I used Razer Krait (6 years), Razer Abbysus (few months), and Razer Taipan (2 years) and I think Razer Taipan is the best in term of everything (except it already has double click issue before 2 years old on main and side buttons)

    Please don't believe everything I just said. Mice is a very personal thing. Hand size, grip style, usage, and beauty are all a very personal thing. So, better go try it out before you really buy one.
