The Krait is different in several ways, the back light is orange and there is no soft rubber coating. Instead of the rubber coating used on many of their current and former line up, they have used a textured plastic.The left and right mouse buttons have a very grippy texture, while the sides have a knobby texture providing a solid grip to help control the mouse. The wheel doesn't stand as high up from the surface of the mouse. This doesn't pose any problems using the wheel, it works well with the overall slenderness of the mouse.
The overall construction is pretty good. It does feel very light and at times can seem a little fragile. The mouse buttons registered well from all angles and where nice and clean. The scroll wheel is smooth and at times felt quite light. The Rubber grip on the wheel is very thin and i'm sure it will get worn out at some point.
The cable has a plastic coating, which is a big departure from almost all the other razer products currently on the market. But this being an "essential" entry level mouse from razer, this is not a bad thing at all. The design and construction ques are there from all the other higher models.
