The Razer Copperhead is presently available in tempest blue, anarchy red, and chaos green with the model we have in front of us today being the Tempest Blue model, which offers blue lighting. The packaging in which the Copperhead ships resemble to that of the Diamondback retail casing. Covering the external packaging is various press related information such as the Razer Precision features and support from WCG (World Cyber Games) and CPL (Cyberathlete Professional League). Cracking open the Razer packaging we were left with the actual Razer Copperhead Tempest Blue, manual with Copperhead CD-ROM (drivers), and certificate of authenticity.
