Mouse buttons/Clicks: 8.5/10
One thing I particularly hated with mice I’ve used in the past is the fact that they all use mechanical switches, which eventually start showing double-click issues due to debounce and wear and tear. The VU will no longer have that problem (supposedly) as it uses optical switches.
The trade off is that the buttons feel less crisp, like there is some post-travel after the click. Also, not sure if this is a common issue but my mouse buttons seem to be ‘grinding’ on the plastic shell of the VU and you can hear a sound of it when you depress the button slowly (not an issue when clicking normally)
Scroll Wheel: 8/10
Nothing much to say about the scroll wheel. It functions as it should. It’s not as great as a SteelSeries Rival 610, but it doesn’t feel as rigid between steps like the original DeathAdder I have used in the past. One thing I have noticed is that it ‘rattles’ a bit more when scrolling up than down but I’m guessing it’s just a wear and tear issue.
Shape & Body: 9/10
It’s an ambidextrous mouse and is fairly low in height. The ‘bump’ on the mouse is slightly towards the center-back of the mouse. I mainly use palm and claw grip about 60/40% of the time respectively and have no issues with the shape. The ambidextrous shape also didn’t give me any issues gripping the mouse as there is a rubberized surface on the sides. Grip is entirely preference-based so go with what you think is suitable for you. There is a small tear in the rubber grip but that is due to me putting a lot of force and accidentally cutting it while cleaning. Also, I am right handed and the side buttons on my ring/pinky finger side have never once been accidentally pressed.
Tracking & Weight: 10/10
These are the things the VU excels at. The tracking is as expected from a top tier mouse with one of the best sensors. No issues even after playing countless hours on FPS games (I play on a low sens so I do a lot of mouse movement). The weight is incredibly light as well. Coming from a G703 which weighs at around 90-100g, the weight difference was immediately noticeable and your wrist/arm will thank you for less fatigue over longer gaming sessions.
Charging dock: 7/10
This is one of the add-ons that the VU is actually pretty neat to have. The fact that you can seamlessly place it on the dock to start charging after use is so handy when you don’t have to fiddle with cables into a small jack on the mouse. The dock is also angled and makes the VU appear aesthetic when charging, almost like a display piece similar to the Mamba Wireless.
A major drawback of this is the two charging pins on the dock that lose connectivity over time. Apparently, this is a common issue all VU users encounter where the dock seemingly stops charging the mouse. After playing around with it, it appears that the connectivity is greatly affected by dust on both the mouse and the dock pins. Cleaning the pins and the holes on the VU proved to work, but there are also ‘sweet spots’ where you can position your mouse (usually towards the front of the dock) that it begins to charge. If you don’t mind doing some maintenance to your mouse than this shouldn’t be an issue.
The dock does however come with some rgb that can be useful for displaying battery levels when in use.
I know many people dislike the Synapse software from Razer (I personally don’t really care too much), but you’d be glad to know that the VU has onboard memory. This means that you can set up the mouse on Synapse before uninstalling it and you can use your mouse like a typical Plug and Play device.
The VU is honestly the best mouse I have used so far. It is near perfect for casual and competitive use especially if you can work around/overlook the issues mentioned above. One of the top tier mice right now and I would highly recommend it to anyone, even with so many lightweight wireless (and wired) mice that are on the market in the recent year and a half. I’ve used the VU for almost a year now and actually see myself using it for quite a long time to come.

Second thing, Razer really needs to add more functionality to the dock. Yes, the dock and the mouse syncs with Razer Synapse when they are apart and it makes your desk setup look cool. However, you CANNOT change the colors of the dock and mouse while they are charging together. On one hand, its nice to see that you can tell the battery level through the dock/mouse glowing red/yellow/green, but because of the long battery life and quick charging times, I'd like them to make it so I can change the color of the dock while my mouse is charging. Having the color of the dock and the mouse out of my control sucks and its something I hope they address in a future update.
The fit of the mouse feels nice to my hand (Size M). Battery life is long. Charging is quick. When the mouse is off, the light turns off without a white outline so the mouse appears all black which is pretty cool. 2 buttons on each side of the mouse which is useful for some games. Not an infinite scroll wheel. Lightweight. Cool design.
Don't buy this at full price ($200) if you can, wait for a sale and pick it up for less (~$160).
EDIT: 5 -> 2 Stars. My replacement Viper Ultimate came in and at first it was perfect. 2 days later the creakiness crept in on the right button. I notice this every time I click down on it. You will notice it through the post-travel of the button, meaning that after you pass the threshold of the mouse registering your click, you are able to go a bit further which makes a grindy, creaky, and squeaky noise. In addition to this, the buttons will feel extremely mushy.
EDIT 2: 2 -> 1 Star. Amazon issued me a partial refund, meaning I got this mouse around ~110 CAD from 200 CAD. I thought I could tolerate it, but the button actually got worse. It feels more loose, you can HEAR the rattle getting progressively worse, and the button overall feels really, really bad.
EDIT 3: Got the RMA from Razer. Recieved the replacement within a week. This mouse is perfect now, and I love it. Was it worth the hassle? Who knows
What I like about the RVU
+ Light (almost too light for me personally)
+ Better texture than GPW.
What I dislike about the RVU
- Mouse feet are too thin so the base digs into softer/thick mousepads causing gliding inconsistencies.
- The left mouse button has a noticeable pre/post-travel causing it to feel mushy (apparently this is a known issue).
- Squeaky buttons.
- Ambidextrous means less comfort.
- Mouse feet are way too slick (even on control pads)
- Game-breaking sensor rattle on my unit.
- Overall QC is atrocious for a $200 mouse.
updated for 5/11/2020 - my unit now has sensor rattle. Binned.
I can't recommend this to anyone.
Hagan synapse multiplataforma y seria un mouse ligero de 5 estrellas, gran precio para una calidad de construcción muy muy buena, switches ópticos de razer sin debounce time y que se sienten muy bien, el material con el que se desliza es muy bueno, mouse súper ligero y aún así se siente sólido y sin hoyos como otros mouse ligeros, lo único negativo es que el cable podría ser mejor, aunque no es tan malo. Los mexicanos no somos tan altos en promedio y normalmente el tamaño de nuestras manos es proporcional a nuestra altura, me di cuenta que un mouse pequeño era indicado para mi luego de usar este, pues anteriormente tenía un g502 y ahora se siente como un ladrillo por el peso y también lo siento grande para mi mano, yo mido 1.68
