The US-headquartered Razer is known as a supplier of exceptional-quality gaming mice since 1999. After they resumed the production in 2004 new models have been coming out regularly but not too often.
Each release is an event for the fans of the brand. The newest additions to Razer’s line-up are the Lachesis with a new-generation laser sensor (4000dpi!) and the exclusive Boomslang 2007 Collector’s Edition.
Following the established naming pattern, the new mouse from Razer bears the name of a venomous snake (Razer’s keyboards are called names of spiders such as Tarantula and Lycosa while audio products are named after predatory fish like Piranha, Barracuda, Mako).
This time it is the name of a type of pit vipers. According to the text on the box, the Latin phrase Lachesis muta muta means the “bringer of silent death” which sounds strange.
The main feature of the new mouse is the third-generation laser sensor with a physical (not interpolated) resolution of 4000dpi and other impressive characteristics. This is a record number for mouse sensors. Besides, the Lachesis features Razer Synapse technology, i.e. 32 kilobytes of integrated memory for storing five user-defined profiles with settings.
