Initially I had problems with the drivers, but I worked with technical support to fix this by testing out new beta drivers before they were released.
Since then the Razer Diamondback has been an absolute joy to own and use. It's fast, responsive, accurate and lightweight. I think it's important for any device, whether it be a mouse or keyboard, to feel completely natural and effortless to use just as if it's an extension of your own body like a hand or finger. The Razer Diamondback is exactly that.
I recently made the mistake of buying a Roccat Kone mouse, as I thought technology must have moved on over the last 5 years and that I might be missing out by not having the latest and greatest in gaming hardware. I was mistaken! The Roccat Kone mouse is like holding a brick compared with the slenderness and simplicity of the Razer Diamondback. My gaming went straight down the pan together with my FPS scoring. The Roccat Kone is back it's box and up for sale; the Razer Diamondback is back in action!
I bought my Razer Diamondback mouse back in April 2005. It's been worked really hard and has coped with 1,000s of hours of demanding FPS games. I've never known anything to last me this long before. Perfection!
