Bought one from NewEgg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16826153105) while searching for the X1800XT in stores, heh. Should be here next Monday. Pics and quick review pending.

I'd be curious to know how the software performs. I've had a couple Razer mice and the software never worked right for me.

I'm probably going to get a G5, but it'd be nice to see if Razer's improved on the driver front.

Ok, I'm getting one too. I can't wait any more.

Make sure you use this latest Firmware for your mouse, (released today)
http://www.razerzone.com/copperhead/

And, if you are using a Saitek Eclipse keyboard, here is a fix for a fix for a compatibility problem:

I've done a ton of reading, and basically, the Copperhead has superior specs over the G5, and found a few comparisions on the web. Most agree that the Copperhead is better.

I am a long time Logitech MX user, I really hope the learning curve is short for this...

I'm reviewing the Copperhead...arrived yesterday. I'll post some pics and a video I took of the pulsating logo. :cool:

UPDATE: Here is the video (DivX)

So far, I really like the wheel better than the Diamondback. The Copperhead is slightly larger in size that fits my hand better as well.

Have you used any of the Logitech MX mice? How does the Razer mice compare?

I have the Logitech MX 1000 and I prefer the Diamondback and now Copperhead as well over the MX 1000. I've not used the G5.

Just ordered mine, yay! I'm cannonizing my Diamondback, its been a good soldier and deserves proper recognition. *tear*

Guess I was lucky as the learning curve was very short. The speed and response took a little getting use to when using the net but in games it came naturally with the Diamondback.
I still use the 510 and 518 and have no problem with the size/feel between going back and forth to the Diamondback like a lot of people. I do prefer the Logitechs for general use and don't hesitate using them when gaming. I am better in games with the Diamondback.

Another question about the Copperhead - does the software work on XP-64?

Clay
10-05-05, 05:08 PM
I'm not sure as I'm still running XP SP2. I'd like to get my VMware box up and running at home so I could more easily test things like that but I haven't got around to it yet.

One question Clay, if you do not use the Software, was features do you not get?

Rytr

They say XP64 drivers will be available soon for the Copperhead.

In that case I'll hold off. Did they give a timeline at all?

Holy tits, you can actually flash the mouse's bios, what an age we live in. what's next 2000dpi and on-board memory? :O

jAkUp

It actually has 32KB of memory ;)

Clay
10-05-05, 07:07 PM
Yes 32KB of onboard memory. However, it is not the first mouse to do so as some reviews claim...still cool though as you can take it to another PC and retain your settings on the mouse itself.

Not sure yet jAkUp regarding the software installed or not. I've used my Diamondback for a long time know without the drivers installed and I'm happy with it that way. I don't get the on-the-fly sensitivity tweaking and I would suspec the same with the Copperhead.
