When it comes to the evolution of computing mice, Razer Inc definitely deserves its spot in history especially when it comes to their latest advancement in the form of the Copperhead. Over the Diamondback, and previous models, the Copperhead offers a great deal of improvements although the mice may look similar to begin. Most importantly to gamers, the Copperhead comes with its 2000 DPI Razer Precision engine and 1ms 1000Hz Ultrapolling along with their other proprietary innovations and advancements on part of Agilent. On the facade of the Razer Copperhead, it features innovations and improvements with their Zero-Acoustic Ultraslick Teflon feet, GlowPipe side rails, and ergonomic ambidextrous design. In addition, the mouse features seven independently programmable buttons with Hyperesponse from Razer. On the opposition, the Razer software is presently un-supported by Linux or any third party open-source alternatives that would allow the manipulation of the DPI and polling rate along with the 32KB onboard Razer Synapse memory. Even so, the mouse was immediately detected with Linux and we encountered no hiccups in its operation. When it comes down to it, the Razer Copperhead is simply a thrilling mouse with very little possible downfalls depending upon user preference and we can't wait to see what Razerguy has up his sleeve for future gaming products.
