Razer Boomslang to retail for $99.99 (USD)

As previously mentioned, the Boomslang is coming back. They don’t yet list a price but Google shows something different – $99.00…

The specs are now up on Razer’s product page:

  • 1800dpi Razer Precision™ 3G infrared sensor
  • 1000Hz Ultrapolling™ / 1ms response
  • Five independently programmable Hyperesponse™ buttons
  • On-The-Fly Sensitivity™ adjustment
  • Always-On™ mode
  • 16-bit ultra-wide data path
  • Zero-acoustic Ultraslick™ Teflon feet
  • 32KB Razer Synapse™ onboard memory

And as I guessed, it’s closely based on the Razer DeathAdder internals:

  • 1800dpi Razer Precision™ 3G infrared sensor
  • 1000Hz Ultrapolling™ / 1ms response
  • Five independently programmable Hyperesponse™ buttons
  • On-The-Fly Sensitivity™ adjustment
  • Always-On™ mode
  • 16-bit ultra-wide data path
  • Zero-acoustic Ultraslick™ Teflon feet
  • 6400 frames per second (5.8 megapixels per second)
  • Up to 60 inches per second and 15g of acceleration

The DeathAdder does not list 32KB of memory, but it’s there and supports profile switching. I notice that the Boomslang does not boast 5.8 megapixel and 15G of acceleration, though with the memory listing difference I wouldn’t be surprised if this similar rather than a different feature set.
