Default Razer Diamondback - Do you want the fastest mouse in the world?

It's called the Diamondback. It's all sleek and swoopy, it's got seven buttons (left, right, clickable wheel, plus another two buttons on either side), and it's symmetrical (so left-handed people can use it - a lot of fancy mouses are for righties only). But its major claim to fame is that it tracks at 1600 dots per inch (dpi).

What this means is that this mouse can give you pixel-by-pixel pointer positioning accuracy on a 1600 by 1200 screen with only one by 0.75 inches of mouse-mat real estate. Pointer acceleration can skew this, but the base sensor resolution is what matters when you're looking for ultra-sharp aiming accuracy with minimum mouse movement. Which, very probably, means you're playing action games.

For normal desktop tasks, a hyper-fast mouse is pretty much pointless. Unless you're a cockroach pushing the mouse around with your head, you're probably OK with moving the thing a bit more than an inch to get the pointer from one side of the screen to the other. Many computer users have their mouse speed set much lower than this, possibly because they don't know any better, but it's easy to wind any mouse up to near-Diamondback speed.

I have one but without the software installed because both the latest drivers and the ones that came on the cd gave me (different) problems.

On the other hand, it really is a great mouse even without the software

I agree with the reviewer.

I am right handed and I currently have the MX1000, which I bought on-line, but it is a bit too large. It is comfortable but not for gaming, it is far too big for my hand.

My next mouse (probably the 518)I will test it before I buy it.
