Product Description

Product Description

Microsoft Hardware has joined forces with gaming innovator Razer to bring you the ultimate high-performance wired mouse. Combining the best of both worlds, Habu unites legendary Microsoft comfort with the latest in Razer Precision. PC gaming will never be the same. Provides a customizable side panel so you can adjust the position of the side buttons along with a comfortable design and slip resistant grip.

What happens when Microsoft Hardware joins forces with gaming peripherals innovator Razer? They give birth to an incredible advancement in gaming control: The Microsoft Habu Laser Gaming Mouse. This mouse is jam-packed with features that will give gamers a performance edge.

Habu blends high performance with a snappy design.
Every hand is different, as is every gamers' button preference. The Habu is built for just about anyone with interchangeable side button panels that provide gamers with two options for different hand sizes or comfort preferences. The mouse delivers super-fast response time with a huge 2,000 DPI laser engine that is powered by Razer Precision, and a 16-bit data path with enhanced bandwidth to support high resolution tracking performance. With the Habu, your control will be snappier and more precise, so you'll have a leg-up on the competition when playing online first-person shooters and other fast-paced games. This mouse is also designed with on-the-fly DPI that lets players adjust DPI for control sensitivity. Set the mouse from 400, 800, 1600, to 2000 DPI with toggle buttons and take your customization to another level.

Always-On mode was pioneered by Razer, and this advanced technology is built into the Habu. This mode gives gamers virtually no latency. And with high-speed motion detection, this mouse lets gamers get their speed-on with movement of up to 45 inches per second and 20G acceleration. The Habu features seven programmable buttons with Hyperesponse that allows gamers to program their button functions and caters to their favorite button layout from game-to-game.

A mouse this advanced wouldn't be complete without a snappy design. The custom-looking Habu features GlowPipe side rails and large, ultra-slick buttons that provide smooth and quiet gliding. The mouse also features an ergonomic design that is built for right-handed comfort with a slip-resistant grip, and rubber-coated buttons for improved comfort during those long hours of arduous gaming. Lastly, the mouse features a thin, flexible wire that provides gamers with the speed of a wired mouse, but the feel of a wireless device.

Customer Reviews

The mouse is responsive and feels great.
I finally had success (quite by accident) after uninstalling the Habu software, installing the software update from razer and then flashing the firmware.

I've had this mouse for over five years now and it still works good as new.

First thing, the drivers are poorly implemented. I followed the directions on the razer site and once I got everything done and I thought I was in the clear, I rebooted and I could never get the mouse to be seen by the drivers. again.. so I started searching for fixes and read this is an issue with these mice.. great! I returned my last razer mouse because the drivers were buggy.. sort of the same issue also, wouldn't detect the mouse sometimes.. anyways, I see not much has changed. But I was determined to get this working because I fell in love with the feel of it.. So, I did get it all working finally, but this what I had to do:

--> uninstalled all Habu software..(which is just the driver pack)

--> installed the 2.01 drivers from Razers site from a clean slate.

--> said YES to the windows warning about non WHQL drivers

--> then said NO to the reboot now option and went into the firmware folder (part of the driver pack) and installed the new firmware!! (with /no/ reboot).

--> after the firmware is successfully installed, it tells you to unplug and re-plug the Habu.. do that, /then/ reboot.

NOTE: It's very important to not reboot before attempting the firmware update because the OS and the drivers see the mouse ONLY after the driver install but after a reboot with the old firmware the mouse was never detectable by the drivers again.. it was very frustrating! anyways.. it seems any of the Habu/Razer drivers will only detect a mouse after a reboot with 2.01 firmware installed. My mouse had 1.0 firmware..

I as I said, and the more I use it the more I love the feel of the Habu.. so much like the old IME 3.0 which I still adore.. the only mouse which really just felt like a key in a lock with my hand.

I am editing this review because the mouse really is that good, I bought another one, and I'm still extremely impressed.
Best mousing experience I've had.
I want to change my review to 5 stars...but Amazon won't let me.

I know some of the reviews here don't seem that great.

But let me tell you, the Habu is the best mouse you can possibly buy today.

The latest revisions have fixed all the software problems, and all the hardware problems.
You just have to upgrade the firmware, and use the drivers off of the internet.

7 buttons, all work wonderfully, and all are FULLY PROGRAMMABLE unlike Sidewinders. You can assign macros and media functions, unlike G5/G9's.

And since there's two buttons under the scroll wheel, you don't have to sacrifice any of your main 5 buttons (again, sidewinders, Intellimice, DeathAdder)

It's got a 2nd gen laser sensor, so it tracks better than the Copperhead and original G5 (the G5 2007 uses the same laser as the Habu)

You can't go wrong with this mouse.
Anyone who gets it will thank me for this review.

It's shape and comfort are of the same exact shape and comfort in the following mice.

Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 (virtually the same shape)
DeathAdder (almost the same shape)
G5/G9/Sidewinder/MX518 (mostly the same shape)

Habu also looks the best out of all these mice, except possibly the Intellimouse Explorer 3.0

You can't go wrong with a Habu, so if someone's telling you that they're awesome.
It's because they are awesome.

I rarely comment on any products, but given the poor rating that this product has had because of poor driver & firmware execution upon its initial release, I decided to add a review.

I'll start out by saying that I am a civil engineer, and I do a great deal of drafting and design at work. I am extremely picky about the mouse I use for drafting purposes, and recently (after a monitor upgrade) I went looking for a new mouse, due to the fact that at the high monitor resolution, I couldn't adjust my old optical mouse's pointer speed up fast enough to be useful for drafting.

I went to a local electronics store, and picked up a wireless mouse & keyboard package from Microsoft, thinking that it would be a great thing to be wireless - what a mistake I made! I saw now that nearly every mouse manufacturer out there (I assume to keep up with their competitors) has a new side-scrolling/panning mouse wheel (that I can only assume is useless to 99.9% of the users out there) - I didn't think much of it when I purchased the package, but upon using the mouse, I realized that they made the downward click pressure of the mouse wheel much greater, to prevent accidental clicks when you use the side-scrolling feature, and it made the pan feature in AutoCAD difficult to use, and very hit and miss, as often the wheel would click into the side-pan mode instead of a down-click (useless in AutoCAD). This is absolutely horrible for AutoCAD, due to the fact that the downward center mouse click enables panning. There was also a terrible lag between clicking the pan function, and it actually enabling pan in AutoCAD - I'm sure due to the fact that they try to maximize battery life in wireless mice, so the response isn't instant as with wired mice. After 2 days of use, I promptly returned the setup.
