    Hello Razer Community

    So i bought the Razer Mamba today at a local store..

    I played some games at home.. ex. L4D2 and instantly i experienced small lags if i can call it that.. The mouse kinda jumps a small distance on the screen. It's very minor if i just do circles in paint. But it's HUGE in a game play like L4D2 Where i have a higher in-game sensivity. It happens in Overwatch too :/

    I hope it's a bug that can be fixed via driver or other ways. :)

    Does it do it when its both plugged in and wireless? Is it doing it when you lift your mouse off the mat?

    Try lifting your mouse up and down multiple time and keeping it in the same spot. If the cursor moves around the screen, then its the sensor thats the problem. I have no idea why razer decided to put the phillips twin eye sensor in the mamba, but it seems as though it always skips. Sadly its a hardware issue not a software issue, I have learned to just live with it, as the mamba is the only mouse that can fit my hand. If razer could make a mouse with the mambas shape, and the deathadders sensor, it would be perfect.

    The Zombie strikes again :eek:!

    I'm assuming you have the wireless version and not the Mamba TE. In that case, first step is always to isolate and identify the cause of the problem. Like Katana suggested, try using it in wired mode and see if you still have that skipping problem. If not, then it could be a wireless interference problem. If it still skips, then you can bet on a sensor issue.

    @TheKritix I have the solution for you if you have the wireless version, There is an active issue with the custom lighting if you choose one of the stock lighting your issue should go away. @neow_neow I have had this issue every since got the mamba (wireless) and its not a hardware issue I don't think, Every big youtuber (hardwarecanucks, Eddzel from Linus Tech Tips, etc.) has commented the same thing I have emailed synapse bug reporting several times, if you disable the custom chroma lighting or make it wired the issue goes away.

    I agree, sometimes it won't be a hardware-related issue. But sometimes even if they have the latest firmware and drivers, mice can have problems and so troubleshooting with our support team is sometimes the best to check with :)

    Thanks for all of ur replies.. A driver reset and doing the "off and on" trick helped..
  12. I had the same problem and a Synapse reset has helped. It seems, that de latest Synapse update is the cause for this.
  13. Yeah my Mamba also freaks out sometimes. I might have to restart the mouse or blow into the sensor in order to make it functional sometimes. But 90% of the time, I'd say my Mamba is a solid mouse and the only bad thing about it is the sensor...
