This will connect you to www.razersupport.com for the latest driver/firmware downloads. You can also restore your Razer Abyssus 1800 to the default settings of your current profile by pressing the RESET button. 6. ADVANCED SETTINGS GUIDE Acceleration Acceleration is an internal filter of the driver, and is primarily a legacy option for low dpi mice users. With acceleration enabled, faster mouse movements cover additional on-screen distance. Windows has acceleration turned on by default as a convenience for users assuming that everyone will have 400DPI mice, but this will likely be a hindrance to most gamers and precision users who require greater accuracy. The ‘acceleration off’ option (default) turns off internal acceleration only and does not affect Windows acceleration, which can be turned off via the Control Panel. Dpi Switcher – Resolution Resolution is the number of counts per inch of movement sent by the mouse hardware to the OS. E.g. 400DPI means a movement of one inch will result in 400 counts of movement. Without any of the above filters operating, this will result in 400 pixels of movement on the screen. Independent X And Y-Axis Settings You can preset independent X-axis (sensitivity movements side to side) and Y-axis (sensitivity movements up and down). When this feature is enabled, a new on-the-fly interface bar that allows further sensitivity adjustments will appear on-screen. Macros A macro is a sequence of keystrokes executed in a particular order and timing. It allows you to execute a chain of commands, with the press of just one button for faster response in your games. Polling Rate The polling rate determines the time intervals that the PC retrieves data from your mouse. A higher value would mean shorter intervals and therefore less latency. Profiles A profile allows you to store your various settings such as button assignments and macros as a single group for your convenience. In addition, you can also set your Razer Abyssus 1800 to change profiles once a particular program is launched. Sensitivity Mouse sensitivity is an internal filter of the driver. The maximum sensitivity setting of 10 is unfiltered. Each incremental stop or setting is a 10% decrease, i.e. 1 setting will decrease mouse pointer input to 10% (i.e. a linear graph). Sensitivity is how much your cursor moves on the screen in relation to your physical movement of the mouse. A higher sensitivity value would translate to less physical movement of the mouse, and vice versa. Windows Pointer Speed (Windows Only) Pointer speed is the Windows implementation of Sensitivity. In Windows, a setting of ‘5’ means there is no filtering (default). This bar is included as a convenience. 7. SAFETY AND MAINTENANCE SAFETY GUIDELINES In order to achieve maximum safety while using your Razer Abyssus 1800, we suggest that you adopt the following guidelines: 1. Avoid looking directly at the infrared beam of your Razer Abyssus 1800 or pointing the beam in anyone else’s eye. Note that the infrared beam is NOT visible to the naked human eye and is set on an Always-On mode. 2. Should you have trouble operating the mouse properly and troubleshooting does not work, unplug the device and call the Razer hotline or go to www.razersupport.com for support. Do not attempt to service or fix the device yourself at any time. 3. Do not take the mouse and keyboard apart (doing so will also void your warranty) and do not attempt to service it yourself or operate it under abnormal current loads. 4. Keep your mouse and keyboard away from liquid, humidity or moisture. Operate your mouse and keyboard only within the specified temperature range of 0˚C (32˚F) to 40˚C (104˚F). Should you operate it in a temperature that is beyond this range, unplug and switch off the device in order to let the temperature stabilize within the optimal temperature range. COMFORT Research has shown that long periods of repetitive motion, improper positioning of your computer peripherals, incorrect body position, and poor habits may be associated with physical discomfort and injury to nerves, tendons, and muscles. Below are some guidelines to avoid injury and ensure optimum comfort while using your Razer Abyssus 1800. 1. Position your keyboard and monitor directly in front of you with your mouse next to it. Place your elbows next to your side, not too far away and with your mouse within easy reach. 2. Adjust the height of your chair and table so that your keyboard and mouse are at or below elbow height. 3. Keep your feet well supported, posture straight and your shoulders relaxed. 4. During gameplay, relax your wrist and keep it straight. If you do the same tasks with your hands repeatedly, try not to bend, extend or twist your hands for long periods. 5. Do not rest your wrists on hard surfaces for long periods. 6. Customize the buttons on your keyboard to suit your style of gaming in order to minimize repetitive or awkward motions while gaming. 7. Make sure your fingers are resting on the keyboard buttons comfortably. 8. Do not sit in the same position all day. Get up, step away from your desk and do exercises to stretch your arms, shoulders, neck and legs. 9. If you should experience any physical discomfort while using your keyboard, such as pain, numbness, or tingling in your hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck or back, please consult a qualified medical doctor immediately. MAINTENANCE AND USE There is a little regular maintenance required to keep the Razer Abyssus 1800 in optimum condition. Once a month, we recommend that you unplug the mouse and keyboard from the USB ports and clean the keys on it with a soft cloth or cotton swab. Use a little warm water but avoid soap or harsh cleaning agents. 8. LEGALESE COPYRIGHT AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFORMATION ©2010 Razer USA Ltd. Patent Pending. All Rights Reserved.
