    Hey guys,

    I've had prior experience with the Diamondback and it worked wonders (if you exclude the lack of drivers for the thumb buttons). Now I'm in the market for the Diamondback 3G, and was wondering if you guys have found any problems with it. I've heard many ppl complain about the Copperhead and the need to get a 3rd-party app to run it.

    Thanks
    Sim

    They have Mac drivers for Diamondback thumb buttons. Just download the OS X drivers for the Razer Pro|Click v1.6 mouse; they should allow you to map all of the buttons on a Diamondback (the Pro|Click actually is a Diamondback, and I've heard that the drivers work with both Copperheads and Diamondbacks in OS X).

    What actually is the real difference between Diamondback 3G and Pro Click? Is it just a matter of color in the end? Would use it for both gaming and graphics.

    Pro|Click is a 1600 dpi Diamondback mouse (Pro|Click has the same USB device IDs as a Diamondback). The 3G versions as far as I'm aware are 1800dpi.

    I went out and bought the Diamondback 3G today, but having a small problem as somehow my MBP won't let Razer's System Preferences Pane configure the mouse. No matter what I change in Razer's settings it has no effect on it. Installer reported no errors while running and the book rebooted normally and the mouse's basic functionality is fine.

    Any ideas what's going not as planned?

    I would suggest trying Steer Mouse. I have found it a lot more useful than Razer's Pro|Click driver.

    I actually bought one of those little bluetooth Razer ProClicks about a month ago and I love it. It works great!
