Armaggeddon RAVEN III comes in a well-protected packaging just like other Armaggeddon products. There is an extra free Armaggeddon RAVEN III mouse mat included too. Besides that, there are additional teflon mouse feet for replacement and user manual. Finally, you need to download software driver from Armaggeddon Website as usual.
RAVEN III software is basically the same as Havoc 2 and Textron Scorpion Series since they are using the same optical gaming sensor. As usual, it is plug and play supported in Microsoft Windows. Software driver will unlock all its features and functions. All 5 macro-able buttons are configurable as expected. Same apply to those shortcuts like Windows shortcuts, macros and multimedia functions. 6 sets of DPI can be set from as low as 200 to 4800 DPI.

Armaggeddon 814 Optical software optimized gaming sensor on RAVEN III is working decent as expected. Surfaces including slightly shinny and reflective ones are a-okay to it. And I love the optical sensor that is located at center of the mouse. That’s good as no new learning curve here. Ergonomic is perfectly well and fits for small to middle size hand. Buttons are responsive and feedback is good too thanks to durable Huano switches. Great to have LED light on scroll wheel. You can easily know which CPI you at now. Scrolling is decent too – not too tight or loose. Good for both gaming and surfing.
