Razer Abyssus Essential Gaming Mouse Review – Inexpensive, but certainly not cheap. True to this motto brings the American Nobel hardware manufacturer Razer equal to several gaming components for the entry-level price on the market. What the successor of the Razer Abyssus V2 mouse in the Essential version and the matching Goliathus Chroma Mausmat have to offer, you will learn in our practical test.
Back to the Basics: If you do not need two dozen buttons, additional weights for individual balancing or other bells and whistles, the Razer Abyssus Essential offers the pure minimalism of desk rodents.
The pretty little mouse is pleasingly simple and the operation with just three buttons. And there is the click on the scroll wheel already included. The 78 gram light mouse is connected to a USB cable with a length of just over two meters and is equipped with the built-in optical sensor, which offers a resolution of up to 7200 dpi, on almost any surface.
Whether wood, mousepad or transparent plastic as a base, there is no jerking and hooking, which would otherwise disturb the enjoyment of the game considerably. Important to know: The Razer Abyssus Essential is asymmetrically shaped mouse, which is equally suitable for left-handed and right-handed people. In practice, the inexpensive piece of peripherals proves to be extremely precise and the hyper response pushers with tactile feedback are awarded 10 million clicks by the manufacturer.

ENTRY INTO THE CHROMA WORLD
Well, the mouse does what it should. And that also precise and suitable for left and right-handers. However, what the Razer Abyssus Essential brings a unique feature in the low price range, It is the entry into the colorful world of Razer Chroma RGB lighting.
In addition to the illuminated Razer logo, a light bar on the underside ensures a stylish underglow effect, which proves to be a real eye-catcher in practice. And as clearly more than a gimmick, because the Razer-own lighting harmonizes with other Chroma RGB-capable devices and so create impressive effects that give for example in games, such as “Overwatch” or “Destiny 2”, visual feedback and in the Game flow are cleverly integrated.
The mousepad Razer Goliathus Chrome fits perfectly. A soft map with microfibre coating that flexes and rolls smoothly and also has a LED ring of light. The common play of colors. can then be individually tuned via Razer’s own software Synapse.
ONE SOFTWARE FOR ALL PERIPHERAL DEVICES
So you can more or less easily make the menu choices individual settings, for example, also activate a whole range of lighting options as desired and synchronize with each other. And one more thing has come to our notice: It is mandatory to create a user account during the software installation and a permanent internet connection is necessary. Despite this little chicane, you can not ignore the software package if you really want to use all the features.
RAZER CYNOSA: CAN IT BE A BIT MORE?
Razer Abyssus Essential delivers very decent quality and impresses us with a chic underglow effect. Especially together with the flexible mouse pad Razer Goliathus Chrome, a not only optically, but also technically, recommended a pairing for the narrower purse. The visual fireworks are rounded off with a “Razer Cynosa” gaming keyboard, which blends harmoniously into the overall picture.
