Razer Mamba Hyperflux Impressions

  1. I received my Mamba Hyperflux the day before yesterday and I wanted to give ya'll my first impressions.

    A little background on me. I'm an old tech who has been building PCs since 1998. My first online shooter addiction was Unreal Tournament back in 1999. So I've been playing online shooters for quite some time.

    Here is what I can tell you about the Mamba Hyperflux. Its light. Its responsive. It has lots of customization options. I feel that most gaming mice manufacturers make gaming mice specifically for shooter games, and then they make gaming mice for other types of games. The Mamba Hyperflux is the best of both worlds. It has the lightweight feel and agility of a mouse made for shooters, but it also has enough buttons that it can easily be used for MMOs, MOBAs, and RTS games. So think of this mouse as the best of both worlds. If you are a cross-genre gamer, you owe it to yourself to check out the Mamba Hyperflux.

    I use 800 dpi for most shooter games and I find that the Hyperflux Firefly mouse pad has more than enough space. I have yet to run out of room on the mouse pad. Those who use 400 dpi might require a larger surface.


    This is a very comfortable mouse. I have very large hands (22 cm long), and the Mamba Hyperflux is wide enough that I can easily use it with my fingertip grip.



    I'd also like to dispel the rumor that using the Mamba Hyperflux in the proximity of anything metal causes issues. I have a Corsair desk mat that I use because I hate the feel of glass under my skin. As you can see from this photo, I have a metal support rod running directly under the glass desktop and I have no issues with interference or tracking.


    All in all, I think its great. As Razer's flagship mouse, the Mamba Hyperflux has the quality and feel of a high end mouse. Yes, its expensive. But if you have large hands or you need more than just a basic button layout for gaming...you've gotta give the Mamba Hyperflux a try.

    I know there is meant to be little to none but do you feel there is any latency or connection issues what-so-ever? Do you feel it's 110% reliable vs a wired mouse?

  3. I don't notice any latency. I played PUBG and ROE today and couldn't tell the difference between this mouse and my Deathadder Elite. Keep in mind, the wireless sensor is built into the pad where the USB cable plugs into it, so the signal doesn't have very far to travel. As long as your cat doesn't lay on it while you are gaming, you should be fine. ;)

    I am really excited for this product. Based on your review and a few others if they bring out a Naga mouse for it alongside the Mamba this will be my next purchase!

    This mouse is just incredible. I have zero complaints and I think it's worth every penny spent. No regrets in my purchase!
  6. I am just sick to my stomach right now. It was great for the four days it worked. I booted up my PC this morning and the Mamba Hyperflux is dead. I've tried every USB port on my PC. Windows makes the sound it does when you plug anything into it, but no lights come on anymore and the mouse is completely unresponsive. Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to go throw up. I am that upset.

  8. OK. Its working again. I went to plug in my Deathadder so that I could use my PC, and when I plugged it in, the Mamba came to life again. I'm suspecting that its a Synapse issue at this point. I will uninstall and reinstall Synapse and keep ya'll posted if it becomes unresponsive again.
  9. So I reinstalled Synapse and its been working fine ever since.

    Hard surface has no issue. but I prefer cloth surface.
    when using cloth surface, the corner edge floating so easily.
    and I worry about durability.(cloth weaker than hard surface)
    Razer should sell replacement parts for Firefly surface.
  11. Well, I wanted to give it a few days and see if the mouse "died" again. It did, the same day I updated this thread about it dying. Lifting the mouse pad off of my desk for thirty seconds and setting it back down made the mouse respond again. To make a long story short, the metal in my desk was causing interference. I had an old steel series mouse pad laying around, so I put that under the Firefly. So, my corsair desk-mat and steel series mouse pad are underneath the Firefly now. The good news is that the mouse hasn't died in 48 hours.

    If I could make one recommendation to Razer as far as the Hyperflux Firefly is concerned , it would be this. Either insulate the bottom of the pad with rubber (which will add to the thickness of the pad), or include an optional rubber mat that people could place under the Firefly should they have metal in their desk. :)

    That's a great thing to learn! I am curious if the metal in your glass table is going to impact tracking over where the bar is.

  13. I'm happy to report zero tracking issues, Blu. Here is a short gameplay video of some PUBG with the Hyperflux. It wasn't a high kill round, but I didn't get my first kill until there were only twelve players left. But when the screen shows "5 Alive", I kill every last one of them. Thats my only problem with the Mirimar map in PUBG. You sometimes go a long time without encountering another player. Still, The Mamba Hyperflux is a pleasure to aim with.

  15. Just reporting back to let everyone know that all is well with my Mamba Hyperflux. I also have a tip. I'm not big on using calibration presets. I like to do my own mouse pad calibration. I couldn't get the Mamba Hyperflux to calibrate to the pad surface, no matter how many times I tried. So I plugged the mouse in with the cord, bypassing the mouse pad altogether, and the calibration was seamless. So if you are having trouble calibrating yours, do the calibration with the mouse plugged in and you'll be good to go. :)
