Razer Imperator 2012

RH Numbers

2012 seems to be the year of the mouse upgrade and the Razer Imperator boasts a notable makeover with more refined sensors and a chassis improvement for right-handers. The 4G is the Imperator's all-new dual sensor system – combining optical and laser tech – is definitely a talking point and is extremely impressive.

Razer should be lauded for listening to its users, learning from its mistakes and remedying the original Imperator's lacklustre laser accuracy. With this light and fast 6400 dpi mouse I kick ass in any FPS. Granted, not the top of the range but a good price for cutting edge Razer technology.

Razer Naga Hex

I really like the Naga Hex. It looks like something found on the bridge of the latest Romulan battle ship – all green lights and six hexagonal buttons which can be bonded to specific spells, skills and abilities. Yet unlike the truth bug put in Captain Pike's mouth, it feels fantastic.

The hexagon of enjoyably springy buttons circling a squidgy pad are easily accessible by my thumb. Five PTFE feet on the bottom propel it smoothly around my mouse mat and the 5600dpi laser sensor inside has precise, accurate tracking. Need a new mouse for DotA 2 or Diablo III but still want to be able to afford the actual game? Then the Naga Hex is definitely worth considering .
