Lightweight and wireless gaming mice are all the rage these days. Their effortless glide over most surfaces makes them the first choice for most users. Most of these lightweight mice come with LEDs and hole-riddled pieces that look weird and out of place in environments other than gaming dens. An exception to this, however, is Razer’s latest Viper V2 Pro which was recently announced on Tuesday. This is a gaming mouse, but it’s designed to fit easily into a non-gaming environment as well.
This is not traditional for Razer as it is more known for its flashy designs be it their snake design PCs or other gaming peripherals. Weighing in at just 2.05 ounces (58 g), the Viper 2 Pro is a fairly toned down version of the Razer design. Speaking of the specs, the mouse has an optical sensor that allows adjustable DPI up to 30,000 and also comes with extreme features like the take-off distance which has been made adjustable. All of this is designed to attract PC gamers. However, the design is one thing that is very tasteful and will be perfect even in a standard environment. The snake known for Razer is also there, but in a very subtle way.
We’re not sure if this is a good thing or not, but the logo has been ditched this time, making the mouse 0.1 gram lighter compared to the previous model. This also helps extend battery life as there is no backlit logo.
Slightly below the scroll wheel is where we can see at least a little bit of color representing the DPI setting. Razer V2 Pro also drops the side grips that used to be present on all previous models. These grips further reduce 0.13 ounces and leave room for more options. Razer separately sells a grip tape that you can add to the side of the mouse or on the primary buttons. The mouse is going to retail for $150.
