We had a big compliment for Razer’s Viper Ultimate wireless mouse when we reviewed it a year ago, with just a few grips, one of which is that it’s an expensive rodent. However, it goes on sale with some frequency, as is the case at the moment; it drops to $ 89.99 on Amazon.
It is priced at $ 129.99, so you save $ 40 above your PVP (debuted at $ 149.99). It usually sells for less than its full list price these days, though not as low, except when it’s on sale (it averages about $ 109 last year).

The Viper Ultimate is one of the best wireless gaming mice around. It is lightweight, responsive and has buttons on both sides to accommodate left and right players.
There are many things I like about the Viper Ultimate. On the one hand, it has Razer's HyperSpeed wireless transmission technology, which the company claims is 25% faster than that of its competitors. In our tests, it works just like a wired mouse, with precise, consistent tracking that doesn’t get passed over by fast mouse movements.
This is also an ambidextrous mouse with buttons on both sides. The vast majority of gaming mice are ergonomically designed for right-handed players, but are also suitable for left-handed players.
At just 74 grams, the Viper Ultimate is a lightweight, agile mouse. Razer achieved the lightweight design without resorting to drilling a lot of holes in the chassis, as has become the trend.
Other features include a 20,000 DPI optical sensor, mechanical switches with light beam-based drive on main clicks, and eight programmable buttons. In short, in the realm of ambidextrous mice, this is the the best wireless mouse you can buy.
