Razer are one of the oldest companies who focus entirely on producing gaming peripherals and products, such as keyboards and mice. We reviewed several of their products in the past, and they have always fared well in our labs. Today we will have a look at one of their cheapest gaming mice, the Salmosa. Even though the Salmosa is an entry-level gaming mouse, Razer boasts that it has the fastest optical sensor in the world. How this translates to real world situations we will find out today.

The box is not very thick but the overall package is very light and the product should be perfectly safe during shipping. Inside the package you will find a quick start guide, a complete manual, a driver’s CD, a products catalog, two stickers and an authenticity certificate.
