Attitude One Rapira One – Review

Conclusion

Attitude One have gone back to the drawing board since the Vintorez and with the Rapira One they have a brilliant mouse. Again I have to be a bit upset at not being able to select more DPI modes (something that is available on the Elite), as well as not being able to easily switch between profiles. Otherwise the Rapira One is an extremely comfortable mouse especially for those with larger hands; the positioning of the buttons specifically is far better than the Vintorez as well, meaning the DPI and Side buttons are more easily accessible and usable.
As mentioned far earlier in the review the Rapira One is the lower of two models with a Rapira Elite being available. There are some differences which distinguish them which are listed below.

Rapira One Rapira Elite
Avago 3050 IR Sensor Avago 9800 Laser Sensor
Max 3500 DPI? Max 8200 DPI
LED On/Off Switch 16 Million Colour Backlight System
Super Wide Teflon Feet LED Intensity and Pulsation Settings
2.0m Braided Cable LED on/off switch
Super Wide Teflon Feet
2.0m Braided Cable
45 Euros 59 Euros

 

The shape of the mouse stays the same and the main change relates to the improved sensor and the ability to have any colour light you want shining out via the A1 Logo.

There is a lot going for the Rapira Elite, for not a lot of difference in price. Which means that based on these differences even without reviewing it firsthand I would recommend it over the Rapira One, it is a smarter choice is going to be the better choice overall. Still the Rapira One is a crazily comfortable mouse with a very nice amount of features and for that it gets a DavePlays Bronze award.
