For some time now a number of you have been interested in an update to my desktop setup. I believe that it has been nearly two years now since I originally took the original pictures for the LTT Forums. The setup itself hasn’t changed too much since I feel I have it how I like it finally. However it’s just taken quite some time to keep it clean long enough to take pictures. Gertrude and Hamlet didn’t really make it any easier since they think I cleaned it up just for them.
So Prof and I had this deal where he would buy me this mouse if I did a review of it for his website, this was after a good bit of him trying to get me to buy the thing with my own money.
Not being a very big advocate of Razer mice or the PTE (Philips twin eye) sensor, I was quite hesitant of getting the Mamba TE at first. I’ve had a few razer mice over the years: the Diamondback original and one of the latter rehashes, a couple Deathadders, an original wireless Mamba, and an Imperator, and none of them really WOW’D me for a particularly long time. I was also never a huge fan of the smooth high gloss coatings they used for the grip area on their earlier mice.
