The Razer Viper is one of Razer's best new product lines in years, in my opinion. This year the company updated the Razer Viper mouse and made it one of the fastest gaming mice in the world. Well, now you can get the updated Razer Viper 8KHz wired gaming mouse for a low price of $59.99 at Best Buy. That's $20 off what it normally sells for and a match for the lowest price we've ever seen. You can also find this deal at Amazon. The sale is part of Best Buy's deals of the day, and Amazon is just price matching Best Buy, so you can expect this price to expire at the end of the day from both retailers.

The key to the Viper is in its design. To start with, it's ambidextrous so it works for both right handed and left handed users. Plus it's comfortable no matter how you hold it. It's also extremely lightweight at just 71g, which means you can whip it around effortlessly. It also uses Razer's Speedflex cable. The cable is designed so that it doesn't interfere with how you're using the mouse. It doesn't get tangled up or cause any drag or anything like that. Essentially, it's designed to make using a mouse as simple as possible, and it succeeds in that effort.

The upgrade to 8KHz HyperPolling is also a big deal. The previous version only had a 1KHz polling rate. That makes it 8x faster with super low latency. It has Razer's 2nd-generation Optical Switches for speed-of-light actuation and a 20,000 DPI optical sensor (an upgrade over the 16K on the previous gen). All of that adds up to the smoothest scrolling, clicking, and moving experience of your gaming life.

The mouse also includes onboard memory so you can save your personal settings no matter where you use the mouse.
