    I bought the Razer mamba 2012 edition around the time battlefield 3 came out. My old mouse was already dieing on me.
    Hardware
    The packaging the product comes in, is amazing.
    As far as I can see there are no apparent changes from a visual perspective to the mouse. The main change though is the longer battery life and the Phillips twin eye sensor.

    Ergonomics
    For me this mouse is very comfortable and I really enjoy using it, but many of my friends don't enjoy using it and prefer a mouse like the gx9. My advice is testing a mouse in a shop or at a friends place before buying it.

    Design
    The design is amazing and even lighting and charging looks really cool, but it is not really important for gaming mice.

    Gaming
    The most important factor in a gaming mouse if the gaming. I have played many games and I have to admit it is amazing with some drawbacks. Every time I lift the mouse it will want to calibrate it again for the surface, sometimes it can happen that it will take some time to recalibrate. It really happens very seldom (until now only twice).

    Breakdown to the score
    So why did I only give this six stars? First of all the price is 129 dollars, which is very steep and for that price I would look for the cheaper version the Deathadder or the non 2012 version. Furthermore wireless mode works very very well, but as the dock has to extra power supply, it will stop charging when the PC is off and that is by far the only moment you don't use the mouse. Furthermore the random calibration lags it has is annoying. It only happened twice, but for that price I don't expect something like that to happen. Overall it is a very good mouse and and can be considered by every gamer.

    Oh the Razer Mamba.... If you are like me and indulge in dropping a fortune on pro gaming hardware, which may (or may not) aid in the constant endeavor of increasing your actions per minute, then the Mamba might be for you. But, with a price tag of 129.99 you might want to consider other options.

    Wired up the Mamba feels great. With it's large surface area and smooth plastic exterior not many hands can turn it down. Its few and simple macro buttons allow it to be one of the more handsome pieces of high end gaming hardware that still appeals to top tier players with needs for customization. Although it might be hard to notice a difference between wired or wireless mode in terms of precision, it fails to impress with battery life. Sadly, when the Mamba is connected wirelessly the battery never seems to last long enough in extensive gaming sessions and, in my experience, falls very short of the advertised 14hrs of continuous gaming.

    All in all the Mamba is a fantastic mouse, but is it worth the extra seventy bucks over it's wired brother? It's hard to say yes with that kind of price tag. Some of its competitors, such as Cyborg's Rat series or one of the multitude of Logitech's mice might be a better buy in the end. Also, as a side note, if you intend to game on a Mac many of the features that make the Mamba worth the cost are unavailable due to unsupported drivers on Razer's site. I would suggest the Rat 9 or DeathAdder for a similar experiance that still supports OS X fully.
