The optical switches are very responsive as well as the sensor being very quick and great at telling when it is being lifted off of the table, and is very light. Also, it is a flatter mouse which benefited me as I like to palm - claw grip when gaming. The charging dock is also really convenient especially if you allow your PC's USB ports to output power so your mouse charges when you finish using your PC.
The scroll wheel button is alright but it's very mushy, I have also noticed that when I scroll up or down that the mouse will occasionally input the opposite direction when scrolling (noticed this issue 3 months after purchase), the charging dock or the metal contacts on the mouse seem to not make great contact with each other sometimes causing the mouse to not charge on the dock which is a rare occurrence but inconvenient when it does happen .
The mouse on paper is a superb mouse with good weight and shape for claw/hybrid grips & medium size hands. It's downfall is Razer's quality control causing some of the vipers to have failing parts within a year like my copy. Although my copy is still functional, the failure to charge in rare instances when the mouse doesn't sit perfectly on the contacts and the miss-inputs when scrolling either up or down holds me back from giving this mouse a 5/5. If you can keep a hold of your receipt and you're willing to deal with Razer support for your Viper, this mouse is definitely worth your time.

- Seems to be the new batch. I noticed the clicks are crisper, with much less pre travel and post. The scroll wheel is a lot quieter than the V1, which my friend’s friend had. The side buttons seem to have a little bit defined bump(?) but this is anecdotal evidence, maybe a placebo effect. - No issues relating to wireless - latency is indistinguishable from a wired mouse - Dock charges very fast
Great mouse if you can afford it and seems to be the new batch of V2 mices.

Light weight Good battery life for a mouse with a non replaceable battery Comfortable grip Dead accurate
Few hiccups with Synapse
Kinda wanted a "treat yourself" item and decided to pull the trigger and so far this hasn't disappointed. I can honestly say that this is the most comfortable mouse that I have ever used (medium/large hands using a hybrid claw/fingertip grip). It's light as a feather, I've tried mice that are lighter and find this to be about as light as I'd want to go) with a pleasant shape that works for my daily tasks and gaming. MOUSE 4 & 5 Buttons, whilst being a little harder to press than something a little more pronounced (for comparison I was using a Logitech G305 for work and gaming for the better part of 2 years) fall into a very nice spot for FPS gaming and are easy to get used to (at least for me). Battery life is surprisingly good and I'd say pretty close to what the manufacturer claims for continuous use. The little bit of RGB is quite subdued and as always you can turn it off if that's not your thing (personally find it good if you game in the dark or in a dimmed area to quickly locate the mouse). The dock while not the best design (first few days I was fumbling to get the mouse on there) is easy to get used to and does have the benefit of doubling as a battery indicator if you do so choose. So far as of 2 weeks in I haven't had any issues with it coming loose and it feels pretty securely adhered to my desk. Build quality wise I'd say it's pretty solid. No strange creaks or rattles with any of the buttons or scroll wheel (I'd seen many videos pointing out issues with build quality in some earlier units). Only issue that I had with this mouse was software related... not a huge fan of Synapse (Should point out that this is my first Razer product) but after the initial set up I haven't had any issues. I personally don't think it's as bad as some people make it out to be but then again I am used to using some rather poorly designed software for work. I'd say if you like the wireless experience and want to keep things light to boot then give this mouse a go. I'll update my review in about 3 months once I have some more time with this mouse.
