Take a look at Razer's new Imperator mouse. See anything special? Besides the usual high speed laser engine and teflon feet, the side buttons can now slide and lock into various positions. Now, you'll probably only do this once and be done with it but that's cool to let you customize where the side buttons are. One of the things about playing on the PC is you want the most comfortable setup and this is one way the Imperator accomplishes this. Plus, it's from Razer so you know you're getting a high quality mouse to boot.


Carlsbad, Calif. – November 24, 2009 - Razer™, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals, today announced the Razer Imperator™, a right-handed ergonomic mouse for palm and fingertip gamers. The Razer Imperator is designed with gaming-grade ergonomics in mind – contours and grooves specifically crafted to enhance aggressive mousing movements made by gamers.

“Ergonomics and control were the key objectives with this mouse” said Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, president, Razer. “Your grip stays locked and planted no matter how often you lift and swipe your mouse while playing. One of the typical complaints of gamers is the difficulty in reaching the side or thumb buttons on a mouse. We have pioneered adjustable side buttons that slide and lock into your ideal thumb position. You just can’t get a more custom tailored fit than the Razer Imperator.”
