Summary: I've had this mouse for a week, and using it for regular use (when not at work) with a Bluetooth 3.0 laptop. Not sure which revision this mouse is (as I wasn't aware of the differences) but based on the descriptions this Orochi could be either a 1st or 3rd generation device.
Summary: This mouse is great. A little smaller than your regular mouse though, something to keep in mind! The bluetooth part is great because it means it doesnt take up a usb slot which is especially convenient on laptops. However, i have to say, the bluetooth part was very dissapointing out of the box.
Summary: Let me say, before I start this, I have HUGE hands, and this is a very small mouse. I'm often on the go, and I needed a reliable mouse to take with me when I travel. I also have a Razer Blade, so gaming on the go comes naturally. Getting a Razer mouse seemed like a good idea to me.
Summary: I own the original Orochi mouse and its the best mouse I have every owned. I am an IT guy who loves to game so I have tried quite a few different gaming mice. It is getting kind of old so I decided to purchase the 2013 model.
Niche mouse: opinion would suffer outside its niche, ideal for what it's designed for

Summary: After 3 months' use, I can say this mouse is exactly what I bought it to be. I have a gaming laptop. Sometimes I travel with that laptop. I wanted a travel mouse that would still allow for as much gaming as my laptop can keep up with.
Buy if you want a great compact USB mouse. Don't buy if you want a Bluetooth mouse.

Summary: I've been using this for about 5 months now and here are my thoughts: Pros: 1. Love the design and quality of the mouse. 2. Nice and compact. Great for those with small hands and like the finger grip style. 3. The included case is nice with a handy partition to separate the USB cable. 4.
Summary: In the interest of full disclosure, I actually own a full-sized, corded Razer mouse on my desktop that I use at home, and I like it a lot, but I needed one for my work laptop. I purchased this mouse to be a convenient travel mouse.
Pay attention to the reviews. The old one was amazing, this one is horrible. There's a reason the original is twice the cost.

Summary: I purchased the original Orochi in 2011 when I bought my laptop so I'd have a good bluetooth mouse. That version was amazing. The batteries lasted a long time, about 2 weeks with heavy use, and I didn't need to ever switch it off.
Summary: I normally don't like to say bad things about products, but this is an exception. Firstly, pairing the mouse with the bluetooth adapter is hit or miss. I had to try 3 times to get it to acknowledge that I actually had a bluetooth mouse. Secondly, the sleep mode, which cannot be turned off.
