Good: Razer quality without bells and whistles, Fantastic smooth texture
Bad: It gets dirty very quickly
Comment: I own the black edition, not the mirror, but it's basically the same mouse, so I'll write a review anyway.
The first thing you notice about the mouse its the texture of the plastic. It has a rubbery smooth feeling that some people might not like, but I love it . The plastic might come off as cheap, but it's noticeably sturdy. The mouse is very well built, like every Razer product I've ever bought. The only problem I've come across is that the mouse loves to attract fingerprints and dirt. You basically have to clean it every day to keep it looking nice. It's very easy to clean though; just take a cotton swab and some alchohol and wipe it down. This is the black edition of course, the mirror must be 20 times worse. The Abyssus doesn't have a braided cord, contrary to most Razer products. However, the cord is very sturdy and moves quite well, so this really isn't an issue.
The mouse is very simple; it only has 3 buttons. I use this mouse for playing Starcraft, and the game has no need for extra buttons, which is the reason I bought the Abyssus and not the Deathadder. It has all the technical features of a Razer mouse(1000hz polling rate, ,adjustable dpi) without the added features. For other games, this might not be the right mouse (I use a Razer Naga for World of Warcraft) but for an RTS where the keyboard is used more than the mouse, it's perfect.
Pros: Razer build quality, technical features. fantastic feel. low price range (it cost me $30 on Newegg)
Cons: It gets dirty easily only real problem I've had with it.
I would recommend this mouse to any Starcraft gamer, or anyone who wants a high quality gaming mouse that doesn't need anything fancy. glhf!
