Razer Viper Mini review

Last updated:  

Quick verdict: The Razer Viper Mini is a more accessible and affordable alternative to the popular Razer Viper that doesn't compromise on performance.

  • Compact design is more accommodating to smaller hands
  • Updated optical switches offer firmer feedback for a more mechanical feel
  • Performance remains top-notch thanks to smart compromises
  • Very attractive price
  • May be too small for gamers with larger hands
  • Fewer features than the full-sized Viper

Razer's position in the PC hardware space is strong, with many of its gaming mice among the best that money can buy. Until recently, however, there has been a notable blind spot in Razer's offerings: it didn't have anything to compete against the increasingly popular ultra-light gaming mice hitting the market.

To rectify this, Razer has released the Viper Mini, a leaner and more compact version of its ambidextrous Viper wired gaming mouse. Full of smart compromises, the Viper Mini delivers high-end performance in an accessible package that has a lot to offer PC gamers with smaller hands.
