 Review: Razer Boomslang 2000 mouse
The Boomslang is a four button mouse, with two main buttons, a clickable "wheel doohickey", and another button on each side.

The Boomslang is held together by three screws, two under the front slide-pads and one hidden inside the ball recess.

 Driverheaven: Terratec Gaming Mice

The Boomslangs 2100cpi is certainly not almost 3 times "better" compared to the Mambas 800cpi resolution would have you believe when gaming but its more than capable of near perfect pixel control in games or high end design applications which require the finest movement you can get.
The ICEMAT2 didnt make much difference with the Boomslang but made quite a substantial difference to the "glide factor" with the optical Mamba and would be a recommended purchase if you wanted to get the most from your gaming optical mouse.

Furthermore, thanks to a crappy AUD-USD exchange rate, and the fact that their is no local distributor (apparently, this company services Australia) you are looking at around A$200 not including shipping - you could buy a high end AMD Duron for that, or more ram, or a whole host of other bits and pieces.
However, the BoomSlang was never meant for everyone, and its only a select few gamers that both feel the need for a BoomSlang and have this kind of loose change.

 Review - Razer BoomSlang 2000 mouse // PC /// Eurogamer
Unlike most rodents, which are sold over the counter in boring cardboard and plastic boxes, the BoomSlang is only available direct from the RazerZone website, and arrives packed in a bed of foam in a circular metal box that doubles as a nice cake tin...
The BoomSlang's design is also totally symmetrical, allowing both normal (right-handed) and freakish (left-handed) gamers to use it with ease.
So if your bedroom is a graveyard of broken and worn-out rodents, then it's probably worth buying the BoomSlang just for this, as if the mouse dies before its time kärna will send you another one to replace it for free.

So, the Boomslang 1000 and 2000 were manufactured and marketed as mouse killers, since Boomslangs' precision was so high that you'd have killed your (normal mouse-wielding) opponents five times over before they could even think about firing a shot at you.
The Boomslang itself is quite a heavy for a mouse, and its six-foot cord was much appreciated, considering the way I have to wire peripherals around my desk.
