 Razer responds to the lightweight push with a mouse that will have a lot of people taking a look at Razer for the first time in a long time. Small, lightweight, responsive. This will have people talking.

Pros: 69 Grams, Tough shell, Minimal RGB, Optical switches, 5G Sensor, Speedflex cable, Great scroll wheel, NO NEED for Synapse software

Cons: Not many. Triggers have a bit of play and a bit of rattle in the body. Speedflex is not on par with other stock paracords. Other than that - this thing is a banger.

 *Updated for Viper Ultimate (wireless)

Pros:
-Great ambidextrous shape
-New lightning fast optical switches (won't develop double clicking)
-Razer 5G optical sensor (3389)
-*Razer Focus+ Optical sensor
-*Wireless with charging dock
-Flexible cable
-Grippy rubber side grips
-Driverless if you wish
-Great Software Control (LoD, surface calibration, RGB controls, macros that do just about everything, *new asymmetric cutoff distance)
-Receeded side buttons to prevent accidental clicks
-Great scroll wheel
-Satisfying buttons all around
-Light weight with no holes
-*Technically fastest (most responsive) mouse to date
-*PTFE skates
-*Very good battery life ~70 hours (with lighting off)
-*Very convenient charging dock

Cons:
-Learning period for left and right buttons (they feel spongy at first)
-Some may dislike the stock feet (*not an issue with the ultimate)
-RGB limited to back logo

My thoughts:
This did end up being my main... At first, I was very skeptical, especially when I felt the buttons. They felt kind of spongy and I thought they were going to be annoying in game, but they're not bad at all. If you've ever used a Razer mouse, you know the sensor is really good (3389 [or 3390] as it turns out), the same is true here. While the cord isn't as flexible as a paracord, I still don't feel it while gaming or browsing. All of the buttons feel good, and you will NEVER accidently click the side buttons, they all kind of receed into the mouse. The scroll wheel feels great with well defined steps and a light button. I saw some people complain about the stock feet, but mine are gliding great on my glide 38. This could vary on different surfaces of course. Software is really good, you can do whatever you want with it, just know that macros require synapse to be running (this prevents illegal macros from being used in competition). I greatly appreciate that the mouse is as light as it is without holes, and an RGB logo. About that logo, if you turn off the lighting, it does absolutely disappear, no cutouts or anything, it just becomes a black surface. The rubber side grips are very nice too, I like the large surface area they cover. Just a note, the left and right click both wobble slightly when you shake the mouse, but they don't seem to move or be a problem in game.

This is a really nice mouse, I was very surprised. I absolutely did not expect it to be as good as it is, and it just feels great in my hand. I use a claw grip with 19.5 cm and it fits nicely. Usually, there's something about a mouse that bugs me while I'm playing like the air 58 flexes ever so slightly on the side and it affects my aim (probably a mental thing), my model O's right click squeeks when pressed in a certain area (which is a spot I click on alot), the g pro wireless's feet seem to drag inconsistently regardless of the mousepad, and so on. I also think that this will become popular enough to get aftermarket feet produced, maybe even hyperglides. I haven't found anything yet that bothers me in game with this mouse. Since nothing bugs me about it while gaming, it feels like an extension and I can focus on tracing and flicking without interruption. If you haven't bought a razer mouse in a long time during the rise of esports mice, this is a really solid place to start. Once you get over the feeling of the new clicks, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

*So the ultimate is just PHENOMINAL! It's an upgrade all around from the wired viper. The wireless Hyperspeed technology is somehow faster than Logitech's Lightspeed technology, which is faster than wired connections. How that's possible is beyond me, but trust me, this thing's faster than you. They somehow also kept the weight down at only 74 grams! Only 5 more to the wired version, and is absolutely negligible especially since cable drag is eliminated. This is also the most convenient wireless mouse to date because it comes with a very small charging dock. I've used other mice with docks in the past, but this one's very small in comparison, and has a sticky base to stay firmly in place on your desk. Something I GREATLY appreciate is that you can change the RGB on the dock to change its lighting based on the mouse's remaining battery life. The new asymmetric cutoff option is like the opposite of liftoff distance where it adjusts the distance of when the mouse starts tracking again after being lifted. I absolutely recommend the Ultimate if you're looking for the best wireless mouse on the market. The only way this leaves my desk is if a better wireless mouse comes out, I can't go back to wired mice. No matter how floppy the cable is, I always feel some degree of cable drag or slapping around. Keep in mind that appearantly there are 2 options for the Ultimate. One with the dock and one without. I would recommend the dock because of how convenient it is. It's so worth it to not have to always unplug and plug a charging cable. 10/10 from me, Razer knocked it outta the park with this mouse. I can't wait to see how this pushes future mice.

*Note* If you get the Ultimate and notice tracking issues (ie. it stops tracking for like 2/10 of a second), contact Razer customer support, tell them about the issue, and they'll link you to a firmware update. Clears the issue right up. It's likely that this issue will be resolved by the time you get yours, but just in case.

I have an unhealthy overabundance of Razer mice. Been using the Deathadder for a LOOOOOOONG heckin' time.
I always add a paracord cable and Hyperglides. I've been thoroughly enjoying the DA Elite, even bought a backup.
Today I received my Viper 2019. The first things I noticed were weight and the feet. It weights drastically less. As a result, my aim is a bit more concise.
The feet feel EXACTLY like Hyperglides. That saves me a few $ and is fantastic to see Razer up that standard.
The cable is slightly thicker than a paracable. Never gets in the way. Still going to replace, just for aesthetic at this point.
The Deathadder Elite is amazing, but if you're looking for a fantastic new mouse and the fingertip grip can work for you, get this. Especially if you live on Overwatch, like me.

Let me start by saying this is my favorite mouse by Razer and is possibly my favorite mouse ever made. I have tried many mice on my never-ending quest to find the perfect fps gaming mouse.

From memory I've tried:
Razer Deathadder 2014 and current, Zowie fk1, Zowie EC2a, Nixeus Revel (my previous daily driver), the Glorious Model O, The Finalmouse ergonomic, The Finalmouse Ultralight Phantom, the Logitech G Pro Wireless, The Logitech G Pro, and a couple of others not worth mentioning.

Things I like about the mouse:
The shape- this is probably the most important part of a mouse for performance and this mouse closely aligns with my previous favorite the Nixeus Revel. Official dimensions are 4.99 x 2.61 x 1.49 inches.
The ultralight (69g) form factor- I can't stand the honeycomb design a lot of companies are doing and I'm glad Razer found another way to achieve the lightweight without sacrificing the comfort of a full mouse.
The grip on the sides - it's is perfect and helps me with claw grip when I'm playing games.
The matte coating- I tend to sweat a lot and it helps me grip the mouse better. It goes along nicely with the grips.
The RGB- most mice have this nowadays but it's nice to be able to customize it. I've always really liked the razer logo. Razer did well here.
The mouse cord- It is lightweight and doesn't get in the way, almost like a paracord.
Per Mouse Profiles- This mouse allows you to store profiles on the mouse itself so you can set your DPI, lighting, etc preferences and it will remember them. This is nice because you don't need to download any software to make it work, but if you do, you only need to do it once to initially set it up.
The side buttons- They are recessed in the mouse which is both a good and bad thing. I guess it depends on your preference. I do find that I sometimes misclick them because they aren't very distinctive for that reason.
The mouse buttons- They are really solid and I haven't had any issues with misclicks or anything like that.

What I didn't like(not much):
The mouse buttons on the right side of the mouse- I get it, they wanted this mouse to have an ambidextrous design. I can respect that, but it creates issues when I claw grip the mouse. For instance, I find that I accidentally click the buttons on the right side of the mouse when I am trying to claw grip it. My workaround so far has been to just disable those buttons in the software but it's annoying that I have to do that.

With that being said I have two suggestions for Razer for combating this problem:
1. Make the side buttons removable (like on the G Pro Wireless, reference picture included).
2. Make a right-handed only version. This one is less practical so I hope they do something like the first solution.

I still decided to give it 5/5 stars because it is just that good. The issue I have with it is pretty minor and I can live with it. But if Razer addressed it that would be awesome.

Pros:
-Lightweight (Amazing weight without the honeycomb design)
-Great Grip (Comfortable)
-Optical Sensor (Faster Clicks)
-Dpi button on bottom (No accidental Dpi switches)
-Great Clicky sound :)
-Great price for the amount of tech you're getting ($)
-Bendable mouse cord (won't get caught)
-Side buttons on both sides (I was worried about clicking them by accident at first, but they do not stick out enough to press them)

Cons:
-The optical sensor does take some time to get use too
-Side buttons do not protrude out as much as other mice (So again it takes some time to get use too)

Conclusion:

5 out 5

Razer knocked it out of the ball park with this one. I would recommend this mouse to anyone, especially gamers.

Switched from my Zowie FK2. Size is similar- the viper is slightly shorter but slightly wider. I have small hands/use claw and I consider it a very comfortable fit. Materials are definitely an upgrade, the side grips are solid and the other material on what would be the "smooth" looking plastic parts have a slight texture and tooth to it, I feel like I get a much better grip and control on this thing than the FK2.

Aesthetically it's beautiful, I love that the logo 100% disappears when the LED is turned off or fades out. Looks super slick and the overall design has typical razer attitude but doesn't get in the way of any of the practicality of the mouse.

I've always liked Razer Synapse but knowing that the mouse is plug and play after initial setup is a big plus.

No doubt this mouse was created for e-sports. Right out of the box the mouse felt natural in my hand and keep in mind this is more for small to mid size hands and my hands are big. No humps, no weird feeling with my ring and pinky fingers, just a flat leveled mouse keeping your hand in natural comfort. Secondly, I was very I impressed with the weight. It's like a feather and it moves super fast and right on point. Unlike other mouses where there is a learning curve, this mouse felt right at home for me. I compared it to my Razer Lancehead TE and it just feels more natural in my hands. You won't need the synapse software, you can use it right out of the box, however if you want to customize it further more it won't work with Synapse 2. I tried but I got stuck using Synapse 3 which I don't like because it's super clunky and not friendly like Synapse 2. But believe me it's not a deal breaker. You will be happy and I just can't emphasize how comfy my hand feels by palm gripping it.

Here's a bit of a dramatic history lesson; if you don't care for it and what the raw details, skip ahead.

-----------------------------------

Anybody who grew up when competitive gaming first started booming knew there was only one thing that truly kept it all together: a compelling, new-age, tailor-made passion.

In the mid 2000s, Razer got widespread attention with the releases of their Diamondback and Copperhead mice. They were their first mainstream products, and man did it feel surreal to experience what would be known as the first gaming peripherals. The color lighting in motion, the clicks, the premium feel of something engineered for us few (at the time) gamers was something that I'll always thank Razer for. Logitech was still making exclusively office supply mice, and the closest thing to gaming mouse was the Microsoft Intellimouse 3.0.

They took the first step forward, because they knew that what was about to come was based on a fiery passion that every user reading this review knows by heart: competitive gaming.

Now I'm not going to sit here and say they reigned forever. Logitech, Zowie, and Finalmouse have been IMO dominating the market for competitive mice, and I say that with no regret. I'm a personal advocate of the Zowie ZA series, but I've used all mice from the Sensei/Kinzu to the Deathadder 2013 to the Logitech G Pro. The Razer Viper puts the company finally back where it belongs.

-----------------------------------

I won't get into what you can get from their advertising. Let me explain how it actually performs in your hand:

-The shape and weight works in perfect unison together. I personally didn't like the Zowie FK1/2 despite its praise, but I do to this day love the ZA11. I appreciate the contact at the base of my palm as a sort of pivot point, and I have my fingers operate the mouse with a claw grip. This mouse is a dream if you use your mice similarly.

-The mouse wheel is by far the best I've ever used in any mouse. It has absolutely, I mean zero, wobble, it is extremely quiet to the point of being silent, the clicks are subtle yet firm, and the weight is just like the mouse itself: light.

-The clicks, from a feel standpoint, are different. I enjoy the silent switches you find on silent mice, but I can understand those who like the Zowie style which is like a banging click that gives you strong feedback and assurance. They do feel mushy, I am not going to lie, and they will take time getting used to, because pushing them too hard is a thing, and I do have concerns about how long they will last. I am hoping my muscle memory will get adjusted from my Zowie mouse and it will actually turn out for the better. From the limited time I've used it, I do believe that with a softer touch, these will be something that I cannot get away from.

-With the softer touch, I do feel a bit quicker on the clicks. The softer touch required to fully depress them makes your fingers feel a lot more nimble, which is awesome. Less strain, more gain.

-The opposite side buttons are near impossible to accidentally press. I actually like having the option to do with ease so because extra binds are always something I enjoy. But if that's a concern of yours, drop it. For this reason, the hypershift keys are a godsend.

This is an interesting mouse. Idk what Ibwas really expecting when I ordered it. I really like trying different types of mice and currently own a good deal of the more popular mice. The Logitech G305, 502, steelseries Rival 500, 600. Evga Torx carbon, Razer Basilisk, Deathadder and now the Viper. Corsair M65 elite and an Alienware AW558 that came with a monitor I bought. All have their plus and minus, but until I recieved the Viper I was using the Deathadder.

The Viper is a pretty small mouse. I was surprised how thin and short it actually was. I have somewhat small hands so it doesnt bother me. It's ambidextrous, but feels surprisingly comfortable in the hand. It almost feels like it's not made for either hand in a way. It's great how they managed that. The left and right click feel very satisfying, almost like a deathadder, but not quite as light, closer to the deathadder than any other mice I own though. The side buttons are pretty close to flush, but still has that razer satisfying click. I think Razer has the best buttons of any mice I've used and that's no different here. The buttons are small, but it's a small mouse so... the cord is AMAZING for a stock cable and easily the best cable of any mice I've used to date. It almost feels like a shoelace. A quality show place that is somewhat stretchy.

I havent had time to use the mouse over a long period of time, well, because it just came out, but I have no problem saying it's well built and should hold up nicely. It's a bit on the expensive side. If you have a little rodent you like using now then I would stick with what you have until you find this on sale or a warehouse deal. Its apsolutely worth picking up, especially if you're already in the market.

I personally dnt find how light it is to make a difference, I think that's all marketing garbage and the market has just swung atm to wanting lighter mice. You would have to be one weak wrister fella for 20 grams or so to make a difference. Doubly so for thinking you can move a 60 gram mice faster than an 80 gram mouse, but hey, if you do have wrist issues then you should be looking for anyway to game without pain or the least amount of strain on your wrist possible. I would say it's good for that.

Overall, I'm pleased. Its something different and fits good in my palm. Might be a little small for palm grip if you have meat hooks for hands, but I'd say it's great for fingertip or claw grip anyway. Use Amazon's return policy to your advantage!

Ive been using Logitech mice forever. I bought the Power Play mat because I loved the idea of a wireless mouse you would never have to charge. There is only one major issue I have experienced throughout all of my Logitech mice and its double clicking issues. It doesn't matter which mouse it was after a few months be it 3 to even 6 months that issue would arise. My most recent mouse was a G pro Wireless the mouse was excellent if not a little slippery for my liking. The issue though once again arose and double clicks galore. So ive had enough and decided I would try the optical switches on the Viper Ultimate. Only time will tell whether there will be other issues but as of right now I really enjoy and it. The feel of actuation is a little mushy but ive gotten used to it and I love the dock with the sticky feet. The software being synapse leaves a lot to be desired but its adequate I guess. I would recommend this mouse to anyone that doesn't mind synapse and is looking for a light wireless gaming mouse alternative to Logitech. This thing is excellent.
