Razer Salmosa – Entry Level Gaming Mouse


Razer, an electronics company famous for producing high end gaming peripherals unveiled Salmosa, the company’s very first entry level mouse at the CeBIT 2008. The mouse is very much for gamers who are looking for a light and responsive mouse. The mouse has got a good mix of pace along with precision.


Some of its features are

  • 1800dpi Razer Precision 3G infrared sensor
  • On-The-Fly Sensitivity adjustment
  • Ultra-large non-slip buttons
  • Three independently programmable Hyper response buttons
  • Ambidextrous design
  • Scroll wheel with 24 individual click positions
  • Seven-foot, lightweight, non-tangle cord

One of its best features is that it is a lightweight mouse and is affordable. A good choice for gamers who are yet to try any of the gaming products from Razer. It is priced at $39.99 and will be available from the third quarter of 2008.

    Always wanted to ask this.. what does a ‘gaming mouse’ mean? What qualities should a mouse have?

  2. Jawwad says:

    I am no expert in gaming peripherals but I think responsiveness(sensitivity), and speed(DPI) are two critical attributes that separates them from ordinary. Although many gaming mice also include programmable macro buttons & other features. BTW this one looks good from the Razor but lets see how it fares with the current champions.

    Razer has long been a choice of gamers, even before the optical mouse rule the land.

  4. Atof says:

    Well, for a gaming mouse, there are three main features that any hardcore gamer requires: (In addition to what Jawad Said above:)
    1) Ergonomics: If it does not feel right, u cant play well, simple!

    2) DPI: Higher dpi means more sensitivity, and more precision. Getting more movement within a short space is also a benifit.

    3) Macro Buttons: Although not mandatory, however, more customizable buttons means game-suitable layouts can be generated to help the gamer do more in less time 😀

    BTW, I dont like the size of that mouse from the images… dunno how it wud really feel tho 🙁

    Good, but too pricey. 🙁

    Razer has top-notch products, and this seems like a pretty good entry-level mouse. I used the DeathAdder until I got a G5 Blue, and I’m upgrading to a Lachesis.

    And by the way, gaming mice have better lasers for higher DPI, higher polling rates, a more comfortable ergonomic feel, and programmable buttons.
