Questions for Viper users

Discussion in 'Mice and Surfaces' started by retroDeepSpringBud444, Sep 24, 2020.

  1. So I tried out the Deathadder v2, Basilisk v2, Viper, and Viper mini.

    The Viper was my favorite shape and mouse wheel by far. Super comfortable.

    However... the buttons just feel odd compared to everything else. It was fully functional, but the mouse clicks felt soft and crunchy. And the side buttons needed to be pressed until you feel the sharp edge on the shell in order to register.
    It was just so much different that all the other Razer mice including the Razer mini, I just wanted to ask around and make sure it is supposed to feel this way.
    Like, if the Viper had the Viper mini buttons it would be my perfect choice and I could just move on.

    I was hoping some Viper users would be willing to share their impressions of the button feel.
    I was reading around that the Viper and Viper Ultimate had softer clicks than many people prefer, so maybe this is normal?

    I have 3 of them: Viper Mini, Viper, Viper Ultimate.
    Both Viper and Ultimate has soft (someone called id "mushy") clicks. Viper Mini crisp (and IMO it has the best mouse buttons from all Vipers).

    I heared, that the new RVU White/Pink has something fixed, but we'll see after few weeks/months of usage.
  3. Thanks, the more I look into it, it seems that the viper was one of the first to use the new optical switches and they have been refining them through each mouse since then.
    Are there any differences in how the viper and viper ultimate buttons work?
  4. Ok, so I returned the first Viper, and swapped for another one. This one is still softer than the others, but way better than the first Viper. Doesn't have that multi-step crunch sensation like the first one did either. It especially had extra crunch on the right click. Still has extra travel compared to other clicks, but this one is much crispier. Side buttons are about the same.
