Wireless mice seem to be becoming more and more lucrative and interesting for gaming peripherals manufacturers. Logitech has already promised with Lightspeed technology that there’s no difference between wireless and wired mice. With HyperSpeed, Razer also makes that promise and has three mice in its range. We test the Razer Viper Ultimate for you and draw a short comparison to the Logitech G Pro Wireless.

Razer doesn’t determine who can use the mouse and gives it a symmetrical design. Left- and right-handed users will be happy with the Viper Ultimate because there are thumb buttons on both sides. Beside the two mouse buttons and the scroll wheel there is no DPI switch on the upper side, we find it on the lower side. If a quick change of the DPI setting is important to you, the function can also be assigned to a thumb button.
On the underside we find a few more things besides the DPI switch. If you don’t need the mouse, there is an on/off switch. There is a small storage compartment for the USB dongle.
The weight in particular makes many gamers and wireless mice angry. The battery and the technology must weigh too much, so the mouse becomes incredibly heavy. Not with the Razer Viper Ultimate. At 75 grams, it’s even 5 grams lighter than the Logitech G Pro Wireless. It’s even a little bigger than the Logitech mouse. Nevertheless, it has a pleasant ergonomics, even if it lies a little more angular in the hand.
