Razer Imperator Gaming Mouse Review


Razer Imperator  Gaming Mouse


If there is one thing we can be sure of it is that Razer know their audience very well. Not for them the subtlety that you might find with some companies, or indeed the "trying too hard" packaging that also is seen now and again.

The front of the box has a big picture of the Imperator, the standard Razer logo, and a very Medieval font for the Imperator itself.

Opening the front of the box, via a Velcro button, we see the mouse itself against a Razer green backdrop. It's always nice to be able to wrap your hand around something prior to use, although naturally the plastic makes ergonomic mice tougher to get a real feel for.

The sides and rear of the packaging are definitely information city. Every tiny space has been crammed full of everything you could ever wish to know in a multitude of languages.

The other side panel contains the obligatory speech by RazerGuy along with yet another run-down of the features you can expect. Ok enough pre-amble, let's see what's inside the box.

Lifting the plastic cover off and donning our Raybans to protect us from the green, we get our first look at the Imperator in all its glory, along with the various documentation.

If there is one thing you can never fault Razer for it's a certain flair and style. All the documentation comes in a sharply cut out stylised form and you get stickers, quick guides and a main manual. These all, as you'll see soon, mirror the look of the software which is always nice to see a company go that extra mile.

Just in case you think this might be a refined product for the gentleman gamer, the coaster leaves no room for doubt.
