Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a new low price on the Razer Viper, one of our favorite wired gaming mice for most players. Originally retailing for $80, it’s currently available for $50. This is $10 cheaper than its previous best price, which we’ve seen the device hit on multiple occasions.

We recommended the Razer Viper in our tech-enthusiast gift guide last holiday season, and we currently recommend its wireless equivalent, the Razer Viper Ultimate, as the best gaming option in our wireless mouse buying guide. While there are plenty of cheaper mice out there, even at this deal price, the Viper is a decidedly premium device both in terms of comfort and performance.

Its biggest draw is that it’s supremely lightweight: at 69 grams, the Viper is quick to slide around without locking you into the “honeycomb” design of most other ultralight mice. It’s not too large for smaller hands, and its slightly humped design is contoured in a way that should work well with all grip types. (Though it’ll likely be more comfortable with a claw or fingertip grip than a palm grip, especially if you have large hands.) Its rubberized sides help you keep a better grip on the device, and the design is truly ambidextrous, with two customizable side buttons on its left and right. And while the Viper is primarily made of plastic, it’s smooth to the touch and feels sturdily put together.
