The manufacturer Razer has already proven in the past that they are well versed in high-end cordless mice and are superior to other manufacturers in this field. That’s not surprising, since Razer specializes in peripherals. All of the cordless mice that Razer has introduced to the market so far convinced with their unobtrusive and delay-free scanning and error-free radio transmission to the PC. The same goes for the latest model, the Razer Lancehead. With a price of € 99.99 it’s not exactly cheap, but it’s still a good product.
This wireless mouse can be used with both hands and measures 117 mm x 71 mm x 38 mm. The upper side is made of smooth plastic, which is probably more resistant in the long run than many soft-touch materials. The sides are rubberized for grip. Both main keys are equipped with Omron switches and release crisply and with high resistance, which is what the Razer Lancehead wants. The two side keys are positioned symmetrically. The two-way mouse wheel scores with optimum grid and rubber coating.
The Razer Lancehead is around 112 grams heavier than comparable cordless mice. But on the underside, the 2.4 GHz radio receiver fits under a flap so that you can easily transport the mouse. It is rechargeable with a 210 centimeter long cable, which is connected to a micro-USB port. After about one hour the Lancehead from Razer is fully charged and ready for 24 to 27 hours of use with the lights on. What is strange is that according to the software it only loads up to 97 percent, even days later it does not reach 100 percent.
