PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Cyber Snipa Stinger takes the final step in the evolution of gaming mice.
The Stinger is the master of macro; possessing onboard memory, macros can be recorded and set to any of the 6 customizable buttons of a macro profile. With 3 separate profiles, the Stinger gives the possibility of a staggering 18 onboard macros at any one time!
The Stinger also features fully adjustable dpi. The software allows the user to select 4 different dpi levels, ranging anywhere from 400 to 3200 dpi, which can be cycled through by pressing the mouse's dpi button.
The gaming grade laser engine operates at over 7000 frames per second, offers a maximum of 3200 dpi and features a super fast USB report rate of 1000Hz, meaning the response time drops from the standard 8ms to 1ms!
The top of the line laser engine and the armory of features means this is a mouse like no other.

Can't say I'm impressed with the clamshell packaging used here, there is little I hate more than having to get out the scissors to cut open a clamshell package, not to mention, it just looks cheap. This is especially annoying when you are writing a review and have to wait for the editor's approval on the box shots before you can cut the thing open and continue. Still, the packaging does its job.
The mouse itself however, looks really cool in the same red and black color combo the Sonar 5.1 I reviewed earlier sported.
Last out of the package is the driver Mini-CD, the product manual, some spare glide feet (a nice touch) and the weight box which I will go into more detail on later.
