Summary: I owned the first GEN Razer Orochi when I was in High school and University and absolutely loved the mobility and functionality of the mouse. Now the 2013 Orochi has succeeded the old Orochi after many years and what can I say? It does its job well and comes in the same compact and simple form; as a mobile gaming mouse.
Pros: -Small/Compact, -Light Weight, -Perfect for On the go Gaming/Work/traveling, -Wired AND Wireless modes, -SHORT USB cable which is perfect for mobile gaming laptops, -Matches my Razer Blade 2014, -Good Sensor with accurate precision when gaming/everyday browsing, -Comes with a pouch to keep the mouse safe, -Nice feel (not smooth plastic but more roughed plastic.)
Cons: -Battery life is mediocre (lasts about 1 week), -Does not charge batteries via USB
Summary: I bought this mouse after returning the MadCatz MOUS9. I wanted something that would work with USB and Bluetooth. I have a tablet PC with only 1 USB port, and sometimes that's taken up by the USB>ethernet adapter. I wanted Bluetooth for times when I don't have a free USB port, but want to use USB for all other times. This mouse fits the bill perfectly. Having the USB cable means that I can greatly save on battery life.
Pros: - compact, - wired and bluetooth wireless operation, - lots of buttons, - can set multiple DPI levels (software based)
Cons: - reported battery life is OK, - microUSB port is uniquely shaped and small, - laser sensor could have been upgraded to track better on really rough surfaces, - mouse + Synapse software should report estimated battery life
Summary: Great mouse, feels solid and has great battery life. Been using it a month on the Energizers it came with. Software features are ok, wish I could change the mouse LED color or change how long it takes before it goes into sleep mode. Highly recommended.
Summary: I am not a gamer, I use this mouse with my Macbook Pro for programming. I use it 8 hours a day for work, and sometimes more at home. I only use Bluetooth and never use the cable. I bought this mouse to replace a Logitech VX Nano which I had for several years. In comparison to the VX Nano, the build quality of this mouse is worse -- it feels cheaper. The matte finish is very nice, but overall the seams etc.
Pros: - Bluetooth, - Looks slick, feels good, - 7 buttons, - Can connect by cable if needed
Cons: - Sleep mode is too aggressive, slow to wake up, - Drains batteries like a mofo, - Sometimes fails to re-connect via BT, have to power cycle
