    I have used a Mamba TE for nearly a year now, And it has been fine for me and I have went from a Deathadder Chroma. It has only froze up on some occasions, and while it is odd it is nothing to hender the experience, and it looks amazing too with the lighting effects and such.
    I would recommend it anytime to anyone, But you can also take this into consideration.
    The Mamba TE is starting to be a bit of a older model mouse, And that means that some Razer mice with much better sensors have came out in the couple years since the release of this mouse, Like the Lancehead TE for an example. Up here in Canada, the lancehead TE is less expensive to buy new then the Mamba TE, And it has a 16,000 DPI Optical sensor in it just like Razers flagship mouse, the Deathadder Elite. It looks a bit more slick and not as plan as the Mamba TE, But the lighting is much less on the Lancehead then it is the Mamba incase you care about having all the chroma lighting in the world :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.
    The Lancehead is also supported by Synapse 3 Beta, And as of righting this the Mamba TE is not supported by that program yet, Although they do have plans to likely add the Mamba mice to the Synapse 3 supported lineup.
    Also, One more thing on the Lancehead is that if you want the good opticial sensor, You would have to get the Lancehead TE. If you looked at that mouse and wanted the wireless version, You would have to put up with the laser sensor since the Lancehead Wireless comes with the Laser sensor still, For what reason I do not know.

    On to a couple more things about the Mamba TE, I got mine around December 30th last year, and while it has been good it has had the couple problems with the sensor I said above. Otherwise I find that the build quality is better then my two old Deathadders, And the Mamba TE has a clickable side to side scroll wheel that the Lancehead and Deathadder don't have, making the scroll wheel looseness much less then the Deathadder's I have, And the scroll wheel is not something you can accidentally push over to the side while gaming, unless you are having a bad time with learning how to use the Mamba.
    One other issue I have had though is that some of the coating or whatever it is in the plastic by the Razer logo on the mouse has started to fade away making it look a bit like there are little clear dots on that part of the mouse, Rather it be from my intense use of the mouse all the time (Almost used twice as much in stats in game in one year then the Deathadder Chroma was in the two years I had used it all the time, not counting web use age and such), And it could also be because my hands sweat a fair bit more then a normal persons I find when I am using the mouse while gaming, Maybe also because the place I game is in quite a warm area of my house. The side buttons are also not as flimsy and don't move around as much as they do on both of my Deathadders, And I find the texture of the scroll wheel much better then the one on the deathadders, along with the overall look.

    So, in the end, I would recommend this mouse for gaming the way you would do it, But you can always look at the Deathadder and Lancehead, and watch some in depth reviews on them if you did not make up your mind off of this post. The mouse also does come with a warranty of course, So if you got one that did break you could get a RMA from Razer, and then sell the RMA mouse when it gets to you to get another mouse or such. Thank you for reading my multi paragraph essay on Razer mice, I never noticed how long this was until I just looked at it ;). (sorry for any spelling mistakes :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)

    I saw reviews from lancehead TE
    I loved it, but my hands are kinda big , i'm scard of it doesn't fit my hand.
    i Love the deathadder too, he's perfect. But Mamba is so beautiful.
    I don't know if i take the better one or they more beautiful one.
    I think i'm going to choose the mamba

    Yeah, Great choice to me. It would look quite good with the Blackwidow V2 ;).

    Yeah, I got the firefly as well. It goes great with the Mamba TE, But since the Blackwidow V2 and Firefly are supported by Synapse 3 and the Mamba isn't, It could be a bit odd. The firefly wave on Synapse 3 also does not look the best compared to Synapse 2, but they plan to fix that in a patch soon where the firefly goes back to its normal wave from Synapse 2.
    if you are also looking for some kind of audio, I would also recommend the Kraken 7.1 V2's to complete you Razer setup for the most part ;).

    Yeah, if you are buying the Razer products in store make sure to get the good use out of them while you can return them in the 30 day store guarantee that most stores have, Just in case some kind of defect happens, you would not need to wait on your RMA from Razer, And they can take a little bit.

    Sure!
     
  10. Bought one about a year ago and hate it way to fast movement for FPS games and can't adjust the DPI.
