After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Included Features

    The Raven supports 2 major modes of operation..Normal and Game.  The normal setting is designed for desktop use where each button is assigned a desktop related task like page up, page down or 3D Flip specific to the Vista Aero interface.  Simply roll the thumb wheel and choose the application you wish to access.
    Game mode changes things up a bit.  The game mode this opens up a considerable amount of custom features.  Here you can choose the vertical and horizontal DPI resolution, assign single and multi key macros to each of the various buttons.  The best part is by pressing the thumb button you move do a different game profile and can reassign the buttons to support a different game or same game with a different set of keys.
    The LCD display found on top of the mouse tells you what profile you are currently using along with the various X and Y DPI settings.
