Summary: I got this mouse for my new notebook having previously used a wireless USB Logitech. Cabled, it works flawlessly. Using Bluetooth, it frequently loses signal making it unusable wireless which was kind of the point...Had I known, I would not have purchased.
Pros: Great Gaming Performance Feels solid in hand High Performance
Summary: For a small, comfortable gaming mouse it really isn't that bad. However, I think you're spending more money on a brand name than a quality product. It works, it's good enough that I didn't return it, but when it breaks I'll replace it with something else.
Pros: -Comfortable -Adjustable DPI -Corded and bluetooth options -Looks pretty cool
Cons: -Mandatory razer synapse software -Expensive -Difficult to unplug cable
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 the original Orochi back in 2009 and wore it out. By the end, my scroll wheel was like rolling a dice everytime. Sometimes, I'd scroll down and it would go up, sometimes not, sometimes the opposite. I got the new 2013 model as a replacement, but I'm worried that the design for the scroll wheel has not changed, and I'm already starting to feel it wearing down (owned for 7~8 months).
Pros: > Small, ambidextrous design > Can rebind all buttons > 4 side buttons, with on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment > 6400dpi, with 5 presets for on-the-fly switching > Wired or wireless makes it perfect for a laptop
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: I bought this Mouse for my girlfriend and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Right out of the box it was having tracking issues. After multiple E-Mails with Razer there's nothing that we have been able to do to remedy the situation. This is not a gaming mouse due to its lack of reliability. We will be returning this mouse and looking at another.
Pros: - Small - Programmable Buttons - Easy to pair BT - Wireless - 6400 DPI - Option to make corded
Cons: - Mouse glitches all the time - Synapse software doesn't connect profiles well - Batteries die very fast
Summary: I didn't use it long enough to see how battery usage was. When my brand-spiffy-new 'gaming' mouse is ergonomically and functionally subpar to the cheap-as-heck targus that I'm sure came with the company laptop, I don't need much more time to realize I've been conned. This is getting returned tomorrow.
Cons: --Tracking is glitchy/jerky on wireless mode. --Cloud-based synapse is worthless if you're trying to use it in a corporate setting (like me). --Detachable usb cable is a huge pain to unplug without pulling on the wire itself (which drastically shortens the life of the cable). --Ergonomically subpar --Missing clicks --Have to re-pair it whenever you unplug the cable I've been pretty happy with my razer keyboard and wired mouse, but the orochi was a huge disappointment,...
