Closer Look: Razer Abyssus Mirror
A closer shot of the front of the Razer Abyssus Mirror puts emphasis on the ridge of the buttons, the rubber coating of the scroll wheel and the reinforced insertion of the USB cable. Again, the outside edge of the buttons allows both the thumb and the fourth finger to rest upon it. As for the scroll wheel, it has tactile feedback with your typical thudding when scrolled.

The bottom of the Abyssus Mirror has two mechanical switches shouldering the centered mouse sensor. The switch at the left sets two possible polling rates: 125 or 1000 Hz. The switch on the right sets three possible DPI settings: 450, 1800 or 3500 DPI. This mouse uses Razer’s infrared sensor, which emits no visible colour to the naked eye. As for power rating, the mouse requires 150 mA at 5V.

The Abyssus Mirror has a 7-feet (213cm) long USB cable. The cable itself is lightweight, thin and flexible compared to other USB cables I have come across. This is practical because the weight of the cable will not pull on the mouse, which might otherwise interfere with mouse’s movement. The cord is plastic-coated. Many other companies have begun wrapping their cables in a sort of fabric or mesh. The notable advantages of a fabric braided cable are lightweight, high flexibility and low friction against the table. I wonder if Razer will consider using fabric braided cables in the future because these cables work quite well (minus the dust that is easily seen covering these cables).
